I’ve also recently found out that Daniel Craig, who makes his third outing as 007 in Skyfall later this year, recently signed a deal to play James Bond in two more movies. The actor has been determined to stay in shape for the role saying: ‘I had to get fit and I have to stay fit because I have to be able to do stunts. Sir Roger Moore – who played Bond seven times from 1973 to 1985 – recently dubbed Daniel Craig the ‘the best Bond ever’, saying the latest Bond had ‘the best acting and the best build’ of any actor to play the part of 007.
In the latest trailer for Skyfall Commander James Bond appears to fake his own death after he is hit by a bullet fired by his own colleague Field Agent Eve, played by Naomie Harris, while he grapples with an enemy on the roof of a speeding train, and is then seen plunging hundreds of feet from a viaduct into a river below after apparently taking a bullet.
The main antagonist this time is, Raoul Silva, played by Javier Bardem, and the pair are said to be to share a ‘very special relationship’ that goes beyond the usual scope of the secret agent’s usual enemies. Skyfall is due for release in the United Kingdom on October 26.
