New Trailer: Skyfall – Official Trailer #1

SKYFALL / Punchy and erotic, the newest 007 trailer gives very little away while remaining completely action-packed and visually stunning. Though probably not as theatrically sound as last year’s Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Skyfall will still pack a heavy punch, I am sure of it.
