James Bond is back in first Skyfall trailer

Here's the first trailer for 'Skyfall', the 23rd James Bond adventure. It's all rather exciting...

Watch the trailer below.

This is the first footage proper from the film — so far we've only seen behind-the-scenes production videos — and it gives an indication of the film's moody visual style.

We open with Bond being interrogated while M, played by Judi Dench and Ralph Fiennes' mysterious Gareth Mallory look on.

When the still-mysterious 'Skyfall' of the title is mentioned, we cut to a series of rather exciting action shots, including a shoot-out in Hong Kong and a spectacular tube crash.

The official synopsis for 'Skyfall': "Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost."

'Skyfall' is released in the UK on 26 October 2012. The 'Bond 50' Blu-ray collection, which sees all the films together in the high-def format, will be on sale September 24.
