Despite production delays that pushed back its release date, the 23rd James Bond movie—with Daniel Craig reprising his role as 007—will finally appear in U.S. theaters on Nov. 9. And just days after the famous secret agent made a tongue-in-cheek, skydiving-with-the-Queen appearance at the Olympics Opening Ceremony in London on Friday night, the official Skyfall trailer is out.

Considering that she’s the head of MI-6, it seems like M hasn’t learned too much about digital security. She’s exposed all of the organization’s agents: as Javier Bardem’s creepy, creepy, creepy Silva says, “Mommy was very bad.” But with all the Bond bells and whistles on full display here—Q, gun barrels, train-roof running, sexy showers, witty banter—it’s probably a safe bet that M’s misstep won’t have any consequences that can’t be solved by, you know, bringing James Bond back from supposed death.

Skip ahead to 1:57 if you don’t care about getting a hint of the plot and just want to hear the Bond theme while watching things explode. Of course, you’ll miss some of the literal falling from the sky, so we advise you watch the whole thing.
