The most Bond-ian moment in the trailer for Skyfall was the scene where Daniel Craig’s 007 leaps onto a moving train after its roof has been ripped off, lands squarely on his two feet while passengers gawk… and then calmly adjusts his cufflinks before resuming his chase of some baddie. Oh, James, nobody does it better.
Today, to celebrate James Bond Day on the 50th anniversary of the premiere of Dr. No, fans can glimpse at a little bit more of that action sequence leading up to that train jump. The villain he’s chasing is on the roof of the passenger car. Bond steamrolls some VW Bugs and digs the CAT’s shovel into the train’s roof, giving him an opening. And Naomie Harris drives alongside, looking concerned. Of course, if the trailer is to be believed, she’ll soon play a crucial role in Bond getting off the train – the hard way.
Watch the clip below:
Bond fans can celebrate the franchise by spending the entire day watching classic adventures. Epix is airing seven Bond films, including From Russia With Love, and premiering the most-excellent Bond documentary, Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007, at 8 p.m.
Skyfall opens in the U.S. on Nov. 9.
