First 'Skyfall' Trailer Intrigues, Beguiles
And all those other good adjectives

James Bond doesn't particularly care for word association games. That seems to be the only inescapable conclusion to be drawn from this, the newly released first trailer for Daniel Craig's upcoming third outing as the legendary super-spy.
Guns are shot and agents provocateur-ed in the roughly minute and a half clip. Sparse on dialog, the teaser gives us a good taste for director Sam Mendes's visual sensibility, as well as a brief glimpse of villain Javier Bardem rocking a typically hideous haircut in front of a burning building. Oh, and the Bond girls.
What do you think, Hitlisters? Excited to see the upcoming film? Still intrigued as to what "Skyfall" means? Or is your enthusiasm tempered by the project's seeming lack of humor? It was "Quantum of Solace's" dour tone that ruined it for us, after all. "Casino Royale" was positively breezy by comparison, it's graphic torture scenes and tragic romance notwithstanding. Well, anyway. Shaken? Stirred? Let us know in the comments.
