In addition to the rather impressive Olympics skit featuring Daniel Craig escorting the Queen to the event (and not no transgender showgirl, the actual bonafide Queen! The one with the throne and dangly.. pearls!), Sony chose to run a new TV spot for “Skyfall”, Craig’s latest venture as Jimbo Bond, during the commercial breaks. I dunno about the rest of you rascals, but having been sleeping while most of you were watching the opening ceremony, this was actually the first time I’d caught the Bond teaser – looks beaut; and if I were a betting man, I’d place a few bob on this one making some Moneypussy down at the Casino Royale come November.
The latest mission for MI6-er Bond is handled by Sam Mendes, of “American Beauty” fame, and also features Dame Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Bérénice Marlohe, Naomie Harris, Javier Bardem and Grace Jones as a tall, leggy vixen… oh wait, that’s the wrong Bond film. Consider Jones a late scratching.
