James Bond 'Skyfall' First Official Image: Daniel Craig In Shangai (PHOTO)

James Bond is back.

The 007 website has unveiled the first official still image from the upcoming 23rd Bond film, "Skyfall." The photo features Daniel Craig, back as the secret agent for the third time, in Shanghai, carrying a tiny pistol in what looks to be a tense situation.

The photo follows a series of teaser images released on the film's official social media pages, including obscure photos of basements and one of Bond staring into a pool.

"Skyfall" is directed by Sam Mendes and also stars Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCrory and Ola Rapace. According to the film's brief synopsis, "Bond's loyalty to M (Dench) is tested 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."

"Skyfall" hits theaters in the United States on November 9th.
