FIRST LOOK: Javier Bardem on the Set of New James Bond Movie SKYFALL

Two photos taken on the set of the upcoming 23rd installment of the James Bond film franchise, which is currently filming in London, show Bardem in character as the project's yet-to-be-revealed villain.

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.
