Does new Skyfall TV spot have a (minor) spoiler?

A new Skyfall commercial aired during the Emmy Awards broadcast on Sept. 23. Around the 0:20 mark, Daniel Craig’s 007 walks through a door that looks familiar to those who’ve viewed Bond movies of the 1960s and ’70s. Craig’s line, “007 reporting for duty,” is from a different scene based on previous TV spots and trailers.

There has been some speculation among fans about how Skyfall may end. Also, back IN A JULY VIDEO WEBLOG, director Sam Mendes teased, “There’s something about the last part of the movie, which is deliberately, very consciously, could have taken place in 1962.”

  1. Could it be ? The old Admiral’s English Tudor office has come back ?

  2. Mallory. M. Got it. Cool short trailer. Thanks.

  3. Also at the :21 mark you can see Craig is about to use the ejector seat by opening the secret lever on the gear shift.

  4. Interesting that Sony is using the same trailer music it used for the Quantum of Solace trailer from 4 years ago. Whatever you think of that particular Bond film, the trailers were FANTASTIC, especially the use of music. The first few SkyFall trailers lacked that classic Bond theme. I wonder if the tracking on SkyFall has been a little soft so they reused a ‘Bond theme’ score to really emphasize it. Too bad they did not create a new score for this one.

  5. I noticed the same scenes in the latest Emmy Awards Bond commercial. I sincerely home Mallory becomes M with the same office looks of the 60’s movies. As far as the ejector seat? You must be joking.

    I hope the next trailer incorporates Newman’s score with a measure or two of the title song.

  6. Stuart is right !

  7. Do you think that the whole retro vibe about Skyfall it’s just a coincidence or was it literally made as a “tribute” to all the Bond movies so far? I know it’s too early to judge that, but I am still wondering how much of Connery’s era atmosphere will be present.
