"There's an element of Bond coming back to London that you haven't seen in a Bond movie for a long time. MI6 comes under attack. We get to run down Whitehall in screaming cars.

"We actually managed to close Parliament Square. For a while it was ours. It makes me very excited - a unique experience. We used the subterranean London which people don't get access to," he said.

Craig, 44, also praised director Sam Mendes for his work on the film.

"Acting-wise Sam just has it covered. He does that standing on his head, that's what he does - he's brilliant with actors. But he has also brought a passion about Bond to it."
He continued: "He's a proper fan of Bond, and he really has wanted to create something that he's proud of, but also that's going to be remembered as something that's a classic - classically Bond, and also a good movie."

Mendes has admitted he would consider directing another Bond film after his experience on Skyfall.

Skyfall will open in UK cinemas on October 26 and November 9 in the US. Watch a trailer below:
