Bond fakes death in new trailer (+video)

Daniel Craig is seen "dying" as James Bond in the trailer for new film Skyfall.

The British actor has reprised his role as the secret agent for the 23rd 007 adventure. In the first official full-length trailer for the hotly-anticipated film, Bond is seen falling through the air after being taken down under orders from his boss M, played by Dame Judi Dench.

While the iconic spy is seen wrestling on top of a high speed train in the footage released today, M demands the assassin to "take the bloody shot".

M writes Bond's obituary in the clip - before Bond comes back to life, stating "resurrection" as his "hobby".

The trailer also features Javier Bardem sporting blond hair as villain Silva. Ralph Fiennes makes an appearance as M's boss, Gareth Mallory.

There is also the long-awaited return of Q, the technical genius behind 007's gadgets. He is played by Ben Whishaw.

In true Bond style, there are scenes featuring explosions, including the MI6 headquarters blowing up, and steamy encounters with gorgeous girls.

A 17-second teaser clip was posted on Sony Pictures' Facebook page earlier giving eager fans a sneak peak of the full trailer, which has now debuted.

A mini-trailer was also previewed in the US during advertisement breaks while the Olympic Games opening ceremony was screened.

Skyfall is directed by Sam Mendes and is due for release in New Zealand on November 22.
