Just a couple of days ago, we got the first official image of Daniel Craig reprising his role as the iconic James Bond in the upcoming Skyfall, previously known as Bond 23, apparently superseding what we’d thought was the first official image that surfaced last month.

We’ve now got some excellent new photos of Craig on the set of the film, via ComingSoon.net and SpoilerTV. Skyfall is currently filming here in the UK in London, and we can look forward to its release later this year in October. Over at 007.com, you can see the time countdown to the day of release – as time of writing, it stands at 265 days, 04 hours, 38 minutes, and 56 seconds.

“In 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.”

Along with Craig, the film has a tremendous supporting cast that includes Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Bérénice Marlohe, Albert Finney, Naomie Harris, Helen McCrory, and Ola Rapace.

Sam Mendes, who won an Academy Award with his feature debut for American Beauty, will be behind the camera for this, with the script coming from long-time Bond writing duo Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, as well as one of my favourite screenwriters of all time, John Logan (Gladiator, The Last Samurai).

Skyfall will be with us here in the UK on 26th October, so just another eight and a half months to go until we get to see Craig return in one of the roles that made him famous. As usual, he looks awesome in these new photos from the set, which you can click to enlarge. And for all things Skyfall-related, just click right here.
