James Bond teaser released

Daniel Craig is seen "dying" as James Bond in the trailer for new film Skyfall.

The British actor has reprised his role as the secret agent for the 23rd 007 adventure. In the first official full length trailer for the hotly-anticipated film, Bond is seen falling through the air after being taken down under orders from his boss M, played by Dame Judi Dench.

While the iconic spy is seen wrestling on top of a high speed train in the footage released this afternoon, M demands the assassin to "take the bloody shot".

M writes Bond's obituary in the clip - before Bond comes back to life, stating "resurrection" as his "hobby".

The trailer also features Javier Bardem sporting blonde hair as villain Silva and Ralph Fiennes also makes an appearance as M's boss, Gareth Mallory.

There is also the long-awaited return of Q, the technical genius behind 007's gadgets - played by Ben Whishaw.

In true Bond style, there are also a number of scenes featuring explosions, including the MI6 headquarters blowing up and steamy conquests with gorgeous girls.

A 17-second teaser clip was posted on Sony Pictures' Facebook page earlier giving eager fans a sneak peak of the new full trailer which has now debuted.

A mini-trailer was also previewed in the US during advertisement breaks while the Olympic Games opening ceremony was aired on Friday.

Skyfall is directed by acclaimed filmmaker Sam Mendes and is due for release on October 26.
