The newest Bond girl, Berenice Marlohe, has promised that Skyfall, the forthcoming release of 007’s latest adventure, will be “one of the better, if not the best” Bond films ever created.
“Fans really can expect all the key ingredients that have made this franchise last for 50 years – action, sense of humor, the characters are very high in colours,” Marlohe — who appears in the new 007 movie opposite Daniel Craig — told reporters at the Cannes Film Festival on May 21. “They have a fantastic cast and a fantastic director. They really can expect one of the better, if not the best Bond ever. I really think they will really enjoy it.”
Though Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond film, isn’t slated to hit theaters until November 9th, fans at the Cannes Film Festival were given a special treat as the movie’s official teaser trailer was introduced.
In the Skyfall trailer, which lasts just one minute and twenty seconds, Bond is seen being interrogated by an unnamed character while M – played by Dame Judi Dench – watches on. The teaser clip then launches into an action-packed montage featuring a healthy dose of gunfights and explosions before ending with Bond looking towards the camera and saying:
“Some men are coming to kill us – we’re going to kill them first.”
While Marlohe, who plays Severine in new film, was tight-lipped about her own character’s role in Skyfall, she had nothing but praise when asked what it was like working with Daniel Craig.
“He’s a wonderful guy, he’s very serious while working but at the same time he has a great sense of humour and beautiful humanity,” she said. “He’s truly a great person. All of those things are what makes someone sexy or attractive.”
In addition to the Skyfall trailer Cannes Film Festival attendees also enjoyed a special screening of From Russia With Love — the second James Bond spy film — presented by original Bond girl Martine Beswick.
