James Bond appears to fall to his death in the latest 'Skyfall' trailer.

The two-minute 32-second clip shows the British spy - played by Daniel Craig for the third time - getting shot by government agent Eve, who is portrayed by Bond newcomer Naomie Harris, and appearing to plummet to his death.

Bond gets involved in a fist-fight on a moving train before Naomie's alter-ego shoots him off the vehicle under orders from head of the Secret Intelligent Service, M, who is played by Dame Judi Dench.

The movie - which also stars Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem and Berenice Marlohe - is set to see 007's loyalty to M tested after her past catches up with her and the secret agent is sent out to track down and destroy a threat attacking MI6.

Another storyline expected in the Sam Mendes-directed film sees Bond knighted by Queen Elizabeth, who has been tipped to make an appearance in the motion picture.

Bond starred alongside the queen in a short pre-recorded video clip for the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Stratford, east London, on Friday (27.07.12).

The segment saw Daniel's alter-ego take an iconic London taxi to Buckingham Palace to pick up the monarch, and the pair then jumped into a waiting Union Jack-decorated helicopter. They then travelled from the palace to the Olympic Stadium before both appearing to Parachute out much to the surprise of onlookers in the stadium.
