Bond has bullets flying in his new film Skyfall

BULLETS and flames spill from an automatic weapon as Daniel Craig opens fire in new James Bond movie Skyfall.

In new images from the forthcoming 007 movie, the actor is seen caked in sweat and grime as he shoots an all-action scene under Sam Mendes's direction.

The production team are currently filming the 23rd Bond film at Pinewood Studios in the UK, ahead of its release later this year.

He is also seen looking dapper in a fitted suit, prowling a city street with a handgun.

In further new stills, his co-star Naomie Harris is seen poised to shoot through a smashed windscreen, while in another Judi Dench -- who returns as M -- is seen at her desk.
