And I can't seem to properly embed the video here. But the trailer looks pretty great, though Bardem's bleached coiffure looks a bit silly to me.
Anyway, great trailer. Looks like the story is nodding in the direction of Fleming's YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE (which is, for me, the best of the Bond novels) and THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN.

I was thinking the same thing, particularly when M was composing Bond's obituary.
Anyway, I'm there.

The earlier teasers had me intrigued, but this trailer somehow now has me genuinely excited. I was worried about Sam Mendes's abilities with a more action-oriented film, but this feels darkly intense to me.

Exclusive: Adele’s theme song for the new James Bond film, “Skyfall,” written by Adele and a collaborator (probably Paul Epworth), is classic 007 in the manner of the best Bond songs of the past. It’s an ominous, dramatic ballad, with lots of gorgeous horn flourishes peeking out through Adele’s now trademark vocals. It’s also fresh, new, and original.
Thanks to record industry sources, I got to hear a bit of the song. . . .
Adele and Sony Music are set to launch the single during the first week of October. It’s the singer’s first new song since her “21″ album debuted in January 2010. It’s unknown still how Sony will package “Let the Sky Fall” as a one off single since I don’t think Adele has recorded anything else to go with it. There is a “Skyfall” soundtrack score album scheduled from Sony for release on November 6th, but no information is available about tracks. . . .

Adele: James Bond “Skyfall” Song Written With “Rolling in the Deep” Writer
So Adele’s collaborator on “Let the Sky Fall” is indeed Paul Epworth, the man who co-wrote her big bit “Rolling in the Deep” and most of “21.” That’s good news. The “Skyfall” song will make its debut around October 4th or 5th from Sony Music and Adele via social media, I am told. For Adele’s first new release since “21″ Sony will pull out all the stops, you know. . . .

It gets the job done. It's a bit overly-dependent on the Bond theme vamp and it lacks a great hook, but it's far from the trainwreck that QUANTUM OF SOLACE's "Another Way to Die" was.

Wait, he left?
...oh, I guess he did. Totally forgot. As a matter of fact, while watching the clip, I thought "Well, Arnold's still around, but I guess they like what he delivers."

When was the last time Bond had a real hit song? "A View to a Kill," I think.
