This film image released by Sony Pictures shows Daniel Craig as James Bond, left, and Judi Dench as MI6 head M, in a scene from the film "Skyfall." Dench has been the Bond matriarch: the strong-willed, no-nonsense mainstay of feminine authority in a movie franchise that has, more often than not, featured slightly more superficial womanly traits. In "Skyfall," Dench isn't just dictating orders from headquarters, but is thrown directly into the action when a former MI6 agent, played by Javier Bardem, is bent on revenge against her.
