Even with an increased curiosity about the new “Silent Hill” film and trying to make sense of whatever is going on with “Cloud Atlas” — which I’m starting to think is just out there enough that I might really enjoy it — the next movie I’m most excited about is Daniel Craig’s return to James Bond in “Skyfall” set to arrive in theaters on Nov. 9.
In addition to Craig and Judi Dench, this looks to have the best cast of the Craig Bond era with Javier Bardem “No Country for Old Men” as the main bad guy and “28 Days Later” star Naomie Harris as Bond’s new ally, Eve. I enjoyed Harris in the more than competent female sidekick in “Ninja Assassin,” an action film that if you haven’t seen and like action films, you really should check out. Look for that in an upcoming Film Flashback.
Here’s the synopsis of this one: In “Skyfall,” Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
