What do you think about when you think "James Bond?" As vivid as the character is, there have been so many movies and so many different Bonds that there are bound to be a variety of images borne by the character among his boundless fan base. To some, Skyfall should seem like an epitomic Bond adventure. Judging by the trailer and the poster, the movie seems sleek, metallic, high-flying, almost futuristic and fantastical. But for those to whom Agent 007 will always be more of a down-and-dirty soldier, Skyfall won't disappoint.
Pictured below, courtesy of E!, is Daniel Craig as Bond, propped atop a motorcycle, coursing through the streets of what appears to be Turkey. He upholds both airs of Bond here: he's clad in a freshly pressed suit while simultaneously (somehow) handling a beat up motorbike. So maybe it's not the metallic gray digs that identify Bond, nor the dingy high-risk vehicle. Maybe it's the fact that he can manage both at the same time. That's a Bond we can all agree upon.
Catch Skyfall in theaters November 9.
