Daniel Craig will be back on the big screen in the UK this Friday, reprising his role as James Bond in the highly anticipated Skyfall.

The early reviews have been overwhelmingly positive – you can read our review here – and naturally it’s expected to debut big when it hits this weekend.

We caught the new US IMAX poster for the film last week, which will be given away at selected midnight screenings on opening night next month, and now a handful of new images and set photos have surfaced over at MSN.

“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.”

Craig is joined by an all-star cast, headed up by Javier Bardem, Bérénice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Albert Finney, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace, and Dame Judi Dench.

Sam Mendes, the Oscar-winning director of American Beauty, is making his Bond debut behind the camera, with a script penned by Bond frequents Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, and the ever-brilliant John Logan (Gladiator, Coriolanus).

Skyfall will be released in regular and IMAX theatres in the UK this Friday, 26th October. In the US, it will land in IMAX theatres a day early on 8th November, before going wide on 9th November across the country. For now, here are the new images (some of which have surfaced in scanned form previously), which you can click to enlarge.
