The first official still from the set of the 23rd James Bond adventure, "Skyfall", starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, was released on today at 8am GMT. The shot shows a bearded Daniel Craig sneaking through the neon lights of Shanghai. He is seen to be carrying his tried and true Walther.

The scene was filmed at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England during November 2011. The background corresponds to a sequence seen in a previously released twitter photo in which the clapperboard reveals a night shoot interior taking place around scene #64.

The 23rd James Bond film, "Skyfall", commenced principal studio photography on 7th November 2011 for a UK release on October 26th, 2012 and the USA on November 9, 2012. MGM will produce, finance and distribute 007's 23rd adventure in partnership with Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Daniel Craig will be returning as the legendary British secret agent, alongside Judi Dench as "M", with Sam Mendes directing a screenplay written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan. The cast will also include Bérénice Marlohe, Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Ben Wishaw. The film will shoot at Pinewood Studios and on location in London, England; Scotland; Shanghai, China and Istanbul, Turkey.

It will be the longest gap between Bond movies without a change in the lead role. In addition, 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the EON Productions series of James Bond films.
