James Bond is back, hunky, handsome and shirtless as ever, and once again played by Daniel Craig, in his third outing as Agent 007.

Unveiled on Monday: the trailer for Bond's 23rd screen adventure, Skyfall, due in U.S. theaters Nov. 9, and costarring Javier Bardem and French actress Bérénice Marlohe as the new Bond Girl, named Severine.

In the brief film clip, Bond/Craig is shown against a variety of international locations, while a location posting states that the production is currently in Turkey. Scenes were recently shot in the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul, where nearly half a century ago Sean Connery's Bond first encountered Turkish ally Kerim Bey (Pedro Armendériz) and blonde Bond Girl Tatiana Romanova (Daniela Bianchi), for the classic From Russia, with Love.

Look out, Daniel Craig – there may be a new 007 in town.

Professional skateboarder Rob Dyrdek is accustomed to performing death-defying feats with nothing but a board between him and the pavement, but this weekend he got behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Sonic to perform a nerve-wracking stunt taken straight out of a James Bond car chase.

On Saturday, Dyrdek, 37, buckled up and put the pedal to the metal in order to replicate the "kickflip," which involved spiraling the vehicle in mid-air as it sailed between two ramps.

At the world premiere of the new James Bond film, Craig strolled the red carpet Wednesday night in London with girlfriend, Satsuki Mitchell, who wore a Ralph Lauren Collection gown and eagerly told reporters that his favorite Bond girl was "the one on my arm."

"He was a bit spotlight shy and glued to his girlfriend," a source tells PEOPLE. "She straightened his tie a lot and whispered what seemed words of encouragement."

Daniel Craig Says 007's Martinis Left Him 'On the Floor'

Originally posted 10/22/2008 10:40AM

Call it sipping into character.

Daniel Craig, the current James Bond, says not only has he tried a Vesper martini – the drink 007 invented in Casino Royale – but he's done a taste test for the best recipe.

"I've tried about 10 of them," Craig, 40, tells London's Time Out in its Oct. 23 issue. "They're knockout. We did a proper taste test: full measure of gin, full measure of vodka and then another liqueur on top of it. I ended up on the floor."

When he's off duty, the actor says he prefers vodka martinis with an olive. Shaken or stirred? "I don't know who drinks stirred cocktails anymore. I like them ice, ice, ice cold, so you have to shake them up."

Amid headline-making speculation about her marriage, her release from jail and her topping a British Rich List with earning power of $20 million, Amy Winehouse may soon add one more line to her resumé: James Bond titles singer.

Ronson, 32, did not guarantee the song's placement in the finished film, however, but said: "Hopefully it will get used. We're working on it and we'll see happens."

Daniel Craig Hurts from 007 Stuntwork

Originally posted 03/20/2008 05:00PM

Daniel Craig can already feel the new James Bond movie.

"They've started to hurt," the blond Bond, 40, tells Extra about the aches related to his stuntwork on Quantum of Solace, due to open this fall.

"I can only gauge it by how much pain I'm in, and I think we're doing pretty good," he says.

As for the name of the movie (the 007 series long ago went through the entire list of Bond creator Ian Fleming's list of titles), Craig says, "I'm very happy with it. It came from an Ian Fleming short story. It encapsulates what the movie is at heart and a lot more which I can't give any away."

He does reveal something about the newest Bond girl, Ukrainian-model-turned-actress Olga Kurylenko. Her character, says Craig, is "very driven. She has her own mission in the movie and, of course, she comes across Bond. They are opponents and then they have to work together. She's very feisty."
