After four long years, Bond, James Bond, is back in spectacular fashion with "Skyfall," opening wide this weekend. While there's plenty of the classic Bond formula to keep diehards more than happy, the addition of several new faces -- first and foremost being Oscar winning director Sam Mendes ("American Beauty" 1999) -- gives "Skyfall" a level of dramatic excellence rarely attained in any of the 22 previous Bond films. We all know "Skyfall" is a perfect way to celebrate 50 years of Bond, but here are five seven fun facts about the film you might not know.

1. Not only is Daniel Craig returning for his third stint as Bond, his abs are returning as well! Yes, for those of you who like Adonis perfection, in "Skyfall," Craig takes what is sure to become another famous dip, much like he did in his first Bond appearance "Casino Royale" (2006). "I was being objectified, but actually that's not a bad thing to feel," Craig recently told Parade about his now famous dip. Craig's light blue La Perla Grigio Perla swim trunks recently fetched $72,000 at auction. In case you were wondering, according to Dame Judi Dench's introduction of the item at auction, the swim trunks were "unwashed."
