Bond's loyalty to M is tested when her past comes back to haunt her. When MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
The four-year gap between the release of Quantum of Solace (2008) and this film ties for the second-longest period between James Bond films. This gap between films also represents the longest time between films without a casting change to the actor playing James Bond. ... ...
Ronson's down. He needs a medical evac.
M: Where is it? Is it there?
James Bond: Hard drives gone.
M: You sure?
James Bond: It's gone. Give me a minute.
M: They must have it! Get after them!
James Bond: I'm stabilizing Ronson.
M: We don't have the time!
James Bond: I have to stop the bleeding!
M: Leave him!
Prior to "Casino Royale," the several actors who played the head of MI6 were referred to as "M" but it's not clear if they were supposed to be the same character. In "Casino Royale" Bond tells M, "I always thought 'M' was just a random letter. I didn't know it stood for..." and he is about to say her real name before she stops him. However, at the end of Skyfall, he refers to the new head of MI6 as "M."
Bond's traditional shot towards the camera, seen through the barrel of a gun, is placed at the end of this film rather than the beginning. After the blood stops dripping, the James Bond 50th Anniversary logo appears with the words "James Bond will return," below it.
