Skyfall teaser trailer debuts, confirms one call sheet tidbit

Skyfall’s teaser trailer was unveiled, as scheduled, on May 21 on the official James Bond Web site. Some observations:

— You can see what the fuss was about when Roger Deakins was hired as director of photography. Some of the images are stunning.

– There’s one confirmation that the contents of the call sheets and related materials that got out via eBay were genuine. At the 0:49 mark, agent Eve (Naomie Harris) is indeed shaving Bond (Daniel Craig), which was a listed scene in the call sheet materials.

– The post by “Liz” on the IMDB message board in February, was clearly off the mark.

Anyway, if you haven’t seen it, take a look at this version uploaded to YouTube by Sony. After the trailer, there’s an ad for the upcoming 007-themed Legends video game.

UPDATE: Some reactions around the Twitterverse. Multiple tweets to the effect that the 007.com site was very slow when the trailer went online overnight New York time. The trailer was uploaded after it was on a BBC morning show. Meanwhile on the BBC, James Bond@James Bond Live: “You’re late 007. (Skyfall trailer reveal postponed as BBC News takes their sweet time….)”

M@James Bond Dossier: “#SKYFALL trailer is completely un-Bondlike.” Bond Blog: “#SKYFALL teaser trailer awesome!” Panos Sambrakos: “I’ve the teaser trailer of #Skyfall and it rocks!” Bond Memes: “Great #Skyfall trailer. Bond doesn’t look much happier than he was in QoS, though. No sign yet of goldfinger humour.”
