Skyfall, the 23rd film in the long-running James Bond series, is not only the highest-grossing movie of 2012 in the U.K., but also their top-earning Bond film...of all-time. You could say that expectations for the movie here in the United States, where it opens tomorrow, are pretty, pretty, pretty high (/resists awful "sky" pun). The 93% Rotten Tomatoes score is just the lemon peel in the Vesper Martini.
Honestly, though, the thing I'm most looking forward to is watching the new Bond Girl, Sévérine, as played by Bérénice Marlohe, who based her character on Famke Janssen from GoldenEye. (There's also Naomie Harris as Miss Moneypenny, too.) Why? That's why. Now's as good a time as any to look back at Bond Girls through history, and roundup some of their sexiest GIFs. They're not all represented here (the lack of Kissy Suzuki GIFs is distressing), but yes, we included Dr. Christmas Jones. PHEW, I know.
