ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Daniel Craig returns to the big screen as James Bond in the 23rd installment of the 007 series. "Skyfall" is Craig's third time as the British secret agent and said it hasn't gotten easier, but it is more fun. "It's really rewarding, it's still rewarding, I get a huge kick out of it. There is always a challenge and you kind of think you know what you're doing and then you realize you don't. So it's kind of - it's really rewarding," he explained. When Craig was selected as Bond in 2005 he received backlash from fans and critics, with some calling him James 'Bland.' While he is too humble to share some of the praise he has received, seven years later he knows how to take the good with the bad. In "Skyfall," Bond's allegiance to M, played by Dame Judi Dench, is challenged as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost. Dench explained how this film is slightly different from those in the past. However, the high-energy action packed scenes that Bond has become known for are still there. "Skyfall" will hit theaters on November 9.
