'Skyfall' Teaser Trailer Promises A Darker Bond

He doesn't seem to enjoy his job as much as he used to. Daniel Craig's tenure as James Bond has already proven to be the antithesis of the Timothy Dalton years, but if the first teaser for Skyfall is to be trusted, it raises the stakes of "darkest Bond ever" even further. We don't glean much in the way of plot points from the video, but we get plenty of haunting drums, a la Christopher Nolan. And, yes, at the :56 mark, we see a man falling through the sky. A "Skyfall," if you will. Going on this, I would say the film looks promising, though would it kill Daniel Craig to smile a little?

Daniel Craig Freaks Out In 'Dream House' Trailer

He struggles with the problems of home ownership. Jim Sheridan is back on the scene with Dream House, another odd entry to his list of latter films. After his Oscar nominated In America, Sheridan naturally went off and made a movie starring 50 Cent. He then directed Brothers, which wasn't so much bad as it was an unnecessary remake. Now comes Dream House, a psychological thriller starring Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz that far too closely resembles Shutter Island. A man moves into a home with his wife and kids only to discover that the previous residents were murdered there. Instead of first bitching out the real estate agent for not utilizing full disclosure, he delves head first into a tangled mystery that brings his sanity into question. If you need other questions answered, just watch the trailer. It pretty much gives away everything.


Here's The First Full-Length Trailer Of James Bond's 'Spectre'

Costarring a very tight mock turtleneck. In case you thought that the next James Bond would be a lighter, breezier affair, harkening back to the halcyon days of Timothy Dalton...we have some bad news for you. Daniel Craig's James Bond seems to have gotten even more dark and more troubled. Was such a thing even possible? Apparently so. In keeping with the plot rumors, it seems that Spectre forces James Bond to confront a secret about his past, and it's dark. I worry that we might be diving a little TOO far back into James Bond's character, sacrificing the fun stuff for a big chunk of character development. We don't get much in the way of action, but we get a LOT of tension. In fact, it's hard not to draw comparisons to Craig's work in the pensive and tense Girl with the Dragon Tattoo as well. In any event, this appears to be another Bond film that branches out beyond the Bond formula, good, bad, or otherwise. (Deadline)


Daniel Craig Has A Sh*tty Memory In New ‘Cowboys & Aliens’ TV Spot

We're also given visual confirmation that these aliens are as ugly as they are pesky. In the new TV spot for Cowboys & Aliens, Daniel Craig wakes up in the desert with a prop from Iron Man strapped to his wrist and no recollection how he or it got there. Sounds like my old enemy Corn Whiskey to me. We also catch a glimpse of an alien this time around. It's what you'd expect. We only catch a gnarled, boney Joan Rivers hand with reptilian skin gripping a rock while it lifts itself out of frame. It's the only confirmation that we need that there are actually aliens in this movie. Up until this point, I was sure that jet from Stealth was up to its old tricks.


Rest Assured, Javier Bardem Has Silly Hair In Full 'Skyfall' Trailer

Ha, ha. It looks like Muppet hair. Much like all recent spy movies, the trailer for Sam Mende's Skyfall opens with MI6 losing sensitive information about their embedded agents, and the consequent fallout those agents experience when telemarketers begin to call their cells during dinner. Then James Bond pretends to be dead. That's one way to shake those telemarketers. Most thrilling about this trailer, besides the action and the women is Javier Bardem's hair. The man is a treasure when it comes to absense of silly wig vanity. He's right up their with Samuel L. Jackson and those Kitty Wigs cats.


This Video Gives Us Our First Glimpse Of 'Spectre' The New Bond Film

it's gonna be snowy and mountainous. The producers of the next Bond, Spectre, have decided to whet our appetite with a little behind the scenes footage of the production shooting in Austria. It's hard to know what to make of the footage, but it looks very James Bond-y, so we don't need to worry about it straying too far from the formula. Speaking of which, this installment will continue to take us around the world, shooting in London, Rome, Mexico City, Tangier and Erfoud in addition to the Austrian Alps. I don't know where Erfoud is, but it sounds like it's teeming with bad guys. I hope James Bond is able to clean that place up a little. In case you are STILL concerned about the plot of the James Bond film not being very Bond-y, here's the logline for the new one: "A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind Spectre." Yup. That sounds like a Bond film. (Deadline)


Emile Hirsch Battles Invisible Aliens In 'The Darkest Hour' Trailer

They're like weapons-toting ghosts. Well, this one's interesting. It's the first trailer for Chris Gorak's The Darkest Hour and it finds a clever way to not make the attacking aliens the same cliche insectoid design that we've seen so much of in recent years. It does so by not showing them at all. They are invisible aliens. Kind of like ghosts but with an organized agenda. And though it's just Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby, Rachael Taylor, Max Minghella, and Joel Kinnaman literally running away from nothing, it still looks pretty good. Definitely like the way that the aliens disintegrate their victims by pulling them into their force-fields. We've been discussing it here at Screen Junkies HQ and it doesn't seem like a bad way to go. Way better than drowning.


Daniel Radcliffe Spends Night In A Haunted House In 'Woman In Black' Teaser

England is in serious need of some ghostbusting. With Harry Potter behind him, recent Hogwarts graduate Daniel Radcliffe is ready to take his first adult film role -- that of a total chickenshit. In The Woman In Black, Radcliffe plays a lawyer who travels to small English village where the ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals. It isn't long before she's after Daniel Radcliffe (in disguise as Patrick Dempsey here) too. Though I have to admit I'd be scared too. Did you see all the creepy dolls in that place? And the dust?? And the creepy messages from beyond the grave??? I'd be a sneezing mess. Also, petrified.


This Should Be the New James Bond Theme

I didn't hate Chris Cornell's theme for Casino Royale, but I always wondered how much better it would've been if it was done by a cheeky British guy who sounds like he's been listening to Flight of the Conchords way too much. Now, thanks to this proposed Quantum of Solace theme song, I know. The verdict: Yeah, it's kind of funny, I guess.

Now, thanks to this proposed Quantum of Solace theme song, I know. The verdict: Yeah, it's kind of funny, I guess. It's still not as funny as the version of the Jurassic Park theme posted after the break. Beware, it has naughty language so it might be a little NSFW.
