Our resident film expert Gavin Miller previews the latest James Bond blockbuster.

SKYFALL (12A): After a four-year hiatus Britain’s most-beloved spy is back.

Daniel Craig – who has reportedly signed up for two more movies – reprises the role of James Bond, looking to repair the damage caused by the rushed production of Quantum of Solace.

This time Bond’s loyalty to Judi Dench’s M is tested, as her past comes back to haunt her – and MI6 comes under attack.

It’s up to 007 to track down the threat – with Oscar-winner Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men) on villain duties – no matter how personal the cost.

Some great British co-starring talent comes in the form of Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Ben Whimsaw – resurrecting gadget genius Q – with American Beauty Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes behind the camera, and songstress Adele providing the theme song vocals.

Full review next week.
