James Bond doesn't handle a word-association test the way the rest of us might. His response to the word "murder" is "employment," and his reaction the word "Skyfall" (the name of the upcoming 007 film and presumably the name of his latest mission) is to tersely say "done" and walk out of the interview.
Something bad went down on that mission, and moviegoers are going to have to wait until fall to find out what.
But in the meantime, the new teaser trailer for "Skyfall" gives some traditionally Bond-style clues. Explosions. Beautiful shots of international destinations. A subway train crashing. A row of coffins covered with the Union Jack. And a shot of the film's villain, played by Javier Bardem, walking away from what's been revealed in past clips to be the Bond family homestead as it burns.
Judi Dench's M, Bond's commanding officer at MI6, plays a major role in the new film, as actions from her past come back to haunt her.
"Skyfall" is scheduled for release in the U.S. on Nov. 9.
