Daniel Craig returns to the big screen later this year in Skyfall, the highly anticipated latest entry in the James Bond franchise, that will see Craig starring alongside an all-star cast, with the brilliant Sam Mendes behind the camera.

After catching an excellent new character banner for the lovely Bérénice Marlohe last week, the US one-sheet and another new character banner, this time for the great Ralph Fiennes, have made their way online.

“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.”

Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Albert Finney, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace, and Dame Judi Dench will be completing the cast nicely, with Mendes (American Beauty) making his Bond debut at the helm, directing from a script written by franchise frequents Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, and the great John Logan (Gladiator, Coriolanus).

Skyfall will be released in regular and IMAX theatres on 26th October in the UK, followed by a 9th November release in the US. Expectations are very high for this one, with such stellar talent involved, and with the first full-length trailers being so very immense, we have reason to have our hopes held high. For now, enjoy the US poster, and the new look at Fiennes in the banner, both of which you can click to enlarge.
