Last night’s broadcast of the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards played host to a few new TV spots for some highly anticipated upcoming films, and now the new looks at Skyfall, This Is 40, and Seven Psychopaths have landed online.  Briefly:

  • Skyfall – Director Sam Mendes (American Beauty) takes the reins in this latest entry in the James Bond franchise.  The TV spot features a nice back-and-forth between Ralph Fiennes and Judi Dench followed by quick flashes of exciting new footage.  November 9th can’t get here fast enough.
  • This Is 40 – The sort-of sequel to Knocked Up marks prolific producer Judd Apatow’s fourth directorial effort, and this new spot plays up the film’s connection to the Seth Rogen-fronted comedy.  The pic opens on December 21st.
  • Seven Psychopaths – Director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges) has assembled an insanely talented cast for this dark crime comedy, and the madness is on full display in these three new TV spots.  The film opens on October 12th.

Hit the jump to watch the TV spots.

Here’s the synopsis for Skyfall:

Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time.  In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi 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.

Here’s the synopsis for This Is 40:

Writer/director/producer Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Funny People) brings audiences This Is 40, an original comedy that expands upon the story of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) from the blockbuster hit Knocked Up as we see firsthand how they are dealing with their current state of life.

Here’s the synopsis for Seven Psychopaths:

From Oscar-winning writer and director Martin McDonagh comes a star-studded, blood-drenched, black comedy. Marty (Colin Farrell) is a struggling writer who dreams of finishing his screenplay Seven Psychopaths. All he needs is a little focus and inspiration.

Billy (Sam Rockwell) is Marty’s best friend, an unemployed actor and part time dog thief, who wants to help Marty by any means necessary.

Hans (Christopher Walken) is Billy’s partner in crime. A religious man with a violent past. Charlie is the psychopathetic gangster whose beloved dog, Billy and Hans have just stolen. Charlie’s unpredictable, extremely violent and wouldn’t think twice about killing anyone or anything associated with the theft. Marty is going to get all the focus and inspiration he needs, just as long as he lives to tell the tale.
