Is there solace in revenge? Bond and "M" sniff a shadowy international network of power and corruption reaping billions. As Bond pursues the agents of an assassination attempt on "M," all roads lead to Dominic Greene, a world-renowned developer of green technology. Greene, a nasty piece of work, is intent on securing a barren area of Bolivia in exchange for assisting a strongman stage a coup there. The CIA looks the other way, and only Bond, with help from a retired spy and from a mysterious beauty, stands in Greene's way. "M" wonders if she can trust Bond, or if vengeance possesses him. Beyond that, can anyone drawn to Bond live to tell the tale?

Reportedly, this is expected to be the final James Bond movie released under the Sony banner. This is allegedly due to a legal agreement which was made when Sony formed a consortium to buy MGM in 2004. This film and its precursor Casino Royale
(2006) have both been MGM and Columbia Pictures co-productions, and both studio logos are seen at the start of each film. For Skyfall
(2012), MGM is expected to return to being the Bond franchise's sole exclusive studio. However, it has been touted that Sony may be staying on. See more
