The summer movie season must be nearing full swing: we have a 007 sighting. “Skyfall” isn’t due out until the Fall, but the first trailer has already turned up:
Sam Mendes (known in comic circles for the film adaption of Road to Perdition) is the director this time around and there certainly are a few striking visuals in the trailer. This trailer doesn’t give away the secret of what “skyfall” means, but apparently the word is a plot point. Not much Javier Bardem in this trailer, save what is probably his silhouette. Then again, that’s why they call the first trailer a teaser…
Todd Allen wears a lot of hats. At various times he’s been (alphabetically), a bouncer, college professor, humor columnist, Internet producer and an NBA/WNBA Beat Writer, among other things. He’s the author of Economics of Digital Comics. You should probably read it.
