Check out 007.com, official website of the upcoming James Bond film, “Skyfall,” with its slick countdown: as of Monday there are just 297 days, 6 hours, and 12 minutes left until the November 9 premiere.

While the site is glossy, dark-toned and sleek, it so far lacks substance--it's not giving much away. 007.com will track casting and production updates, as well as keeping a compendium of “half a century of Bond.”  As 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the James Bond genre, much hangs on the muscular shoulders of the 23rd Bond film.

Under Sam Mendes’ direction, "Skyfall" returns Daniel Craig as Bond and Dame Judi Dench as M--but for how long? Ralph Fiennes is going to be playing a government agent, it seems...possibly her replacement? Other new cast members include the gorgeous and distinguished Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Ben Wishaw as Q, Helen McCrory, and Ola Rapace (that's Noomi's husband).
