Javier Bardem has been unveiled as a blond villain in a new trailer for the latest James Bond flick 'Skyfall'.

Bardem's character, named Silva, is seen confronting a manacled Bond, played by Daniel Craig, and is later shown disguised as a British policeman, the BBC reported.

The video features actor Ben Whishaw as "The New Q" and explosive action in various London locales.

The trailer also showed Bond being "killed" in action and M typing up his obituary.

Played by Dame Judi Dench, 007's boss is then seen being chastised by Ralph Fiennes' character Gareth Mallory for losing a disc drive that contained details of undercover British agents.

Subsequent scenes depicted an explosion at intelligence agency MI6's Thameside HQ and a Tube train plummeting into an underground vault.

The trailer revealed previously unknown plot points, one of which appeared to have been drawn from Ian Fleming's book 'You Only Live Twice.'

The 1964 novel concluded with an obituary for Bond written by M after the secret agent was believed to have been killed during a mission in Japan.

The latest trailer has come shortly after Craig's cameo appearance during the Olympic Opening Ceremony in a short film that showed Bond escorting the Queen to the Olympic Stadium.

Audiences in the US were treated to a teaser of the new footage during NBC's telecast of the London 2012 launch.

Other scenes unveiled on Tuesday include one showing British actress Naomie Harris, in her role as field agent Eve, "shooting" Bond off the roof of a moving train in Turkey.

'Skyfall,' to be released in the UK on October 26, marks Craig's third big-screen appearance as Fleming's legendary spy. (ANI)
