He's arguably the world's most famous ladies' man, and in the trailer for the new James Bond movie Skyfall, it seems as though 007 is back to his womanising ways. Daniel Craig, who stars as Bond, is seen enjoying a steamy shower with Bond girl Bérénice Marlohe at one point in the trailer, with the pair indulging in a passionate kiss.

The trailer also shows Bond apparently faking his own death — a nod to previous outings for the secret agent, as Sean Connery faked his death in 1967's You Only Live Twice to go undercover. Skyfall's new trailer opens with Judi Dench's M writing an obituary for Commander Bond. She says: "What do you say about a man like that?"

Moments later actress Naomie Harris is seen taking aim through a rifle sight as Daniel Craig's Bond grapples on the roof of a speeding train, with M telling her to "take the bloody shot". Craig then plunges hundreds of feet from a viaduct into a river below after apparently taking a bullet. M is seen looking at a row of coffins draped with Union Flags but Bond returns to the screen by telling his boss: "Commander Bond reporting for duty."

Dame Judi responds: 'Where the hell have you been?'

The film finds MI6 in trouble as its secret agents' identities are compromised. The trailer sees Bond up to his usual antics — jumping from an exploding train and firing shots from a handgun while impeccably dressed in his signature suits. In Skyfall, the agent is seen in conversation with villainous Raoul Silva, played by Javier Bardem.

Bond tells him "Everybody needs a hobby", with Bardem asking: "So what's yours?"

Craig — in his third outing as 007 — answers: "Resurrection."

Fans will also be thrilled to see Ben Whishaw as a much younger incarnation of Q, issuing Bond with a Walther PPK that will respond only to his palm print.

Macaulay Culkin's camp denies actor has drug habit

Macaulay Culkin's representatives have issued a fiercely worded denial over claims the Home Alone star has a $6,000-a-month drug habit. A spokeswoman for the 31-year-old actor branded the claims published in the National Enquirer as 'ridiculously fictitious' and 'insulting'. The American tabloid reported last Wednesday that Culkin regularly shoots up heroin and the highly addictive painkiller oxycodone — dubbed hillbilly heroin.

The article went on to say the former child star turned his Manhattan apartment into a drug den where he gets high either by himself or with friends.

Responding to the allegations, Culkin's publicist Michelle Bega told MailOnline: "The report in the National Enquirer that Macaulay Culkin is addicted to heroin and assorted hallucinogenics is not only categorically without merit, but it is also impossibly and ridiculously fictitious." Ms Bega added that the story was "destructive and insulting," to her client. The Enquirer claims Culkin's drug use intensified 18 months ago — around the time he split from long-term girlfriend Mila Kunis, who is now dating Ashton Kutcher.
