New James Bond film "Skyfall" gets royal world premiere

The latest James Bond movie gets its world premiere in London on Tuesday, with Prince Charles on hand to give it a royal seal of approval.

Charles and his wife, Camilla, are attending the screening at the Royal Albert Hall, along with stars Daniel Craig, Judi Dench and Javier Bardem. New Bond girls Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe were on hand as well at the star-studded premiere.

Proceeds from Tuesday's royal gala are going to charities that help members of Britain's intelligence services.

"Skyfall" is the 23rd official Bond film and Craig's third outing as the suave superspy. Dench plays spy chief M, battling a crisis with roots in her past, and Bardem is a villain bent on revenge.

Some critics are hailing the Sam Mendes-directed film as the best Bond in years.

British singer Adele recorded the theme to the movie.

"Skyfall" opens in Britain on Friday and in the U.S. Nov. 9.
