Bond is back and this particular blogger could not be more excited. The franchise has a little ground to recover, though, what with that most recent Quantum of Solace debacle and all.  Still, Casino Royale was ah-mazing so we can just pretend that was the last one in the series, k?

New Bond film, Skyfall, was announced today, with Daniel Craig returning for the third time as 007.

The 23rd movie in the Bond series is due for release in late 2012 and also stars Javier Bardem as the latest villain, Dame Judi Dench as ‘M’ and Ralph Fiennes as another secret agent.

But no Bond film would be complete without a touch of sex and glamour brought by the obligatory Bond girls.

Here’s ten things you need to know about the Skyfall Bond girls, Berenice Marlohe and Naomie Harris.
