Can't wait for this film! I'm a massive James Bond fan but I'm a bit disappointed that Quantum isn't involved in the storyline, but I still have high hopes.

Here is the full interview if anyone wants it.

I like the direction that the latest Bond films have gone. I think that Daniel Craig is a fantastic actor and portrays a dark side of Bond that we haven't seen before.

Wondering how good this will be, I enjoyed Casino Royale, but I'm yet to see Quantum of Solace as I've heard it's not all that good.

The Daniel Craig version of Bond is more similar to the one from the books than any of the other actors' portrayals. I like him a lot.

Agreed, the other Bonds were all dependent on gadgets while Craig's was just a simple bonafide tough guy.

Love Casino Royale, hopefully it would be as good as that.

Casino Royale is one of my favorite movies. Quantum was good, but not as good as Royale. Although the more I watch Quantum the more I like it. I'll be to the first showing of Skyfall I can whether it be midnight, or not.

The "gentleman spy" thing was created by Connery and his almost inability to be a hard-ass. It worked great for the films. In the books, while Bond is certainly worldly and experienced and classy, he is a bit more of a dick, a misogynist, and a bit more violent. He beats people up, sometimes kills people he isn't supposed to, and is less respectful of women than his film counterpart. The gadgets and fancy toys don't start coming in until the books go on a bit further as Ian Fleming was convinced by the films' popularity to start adding them to his novels. In the first book, Casino Royale, Bond has a gun and that's it. Everything else is his wits and his spy bad-ass-ity. Bond's 'thing' is that he can endure insane amounts of physical torture- like more than anyone alive. He's just incredibly mentally tough.

I suggest everyone who likes Bond check the books out. Start with CR. It's pretty cool to be honest. Just don't expect BMWs with laser guns in the headlights and Vaio laptops in every scene. It's not that kind of spy story.

I didn't know much bout james bond movies till I was taken out to see goldeneye on a date when I was 15. I lost interest in the movie series when there was the dissappearing car in Brosnans last film. I did like Casio Royale didnt see quantom of solace. I might catch up on the bond stuff someday.

Quantum of Solace is a series of short stories involving Bond and they used the name for the movie. The movie was bad ass. Lots of kick ass action scenes.

The last I read (which was a while ago) was that the production had been halted indefinitely due to financial problems at MGM (plus this was when there was no working title).

I am absolutely stoked for a new Bond. I see they have the role of Q filled this time, although I'm not going to lie, I still miss Desmond Llewelyn.

James Blonde Returns!

I presume this title & story aren't from the books? There were only three titles left to use I believe; Risico, The Property Of A Lady, and the highly imaginative 007 In New York.

Looking forward to this. I hope its more like Casino Royale and less like Quantum Of Solace, whose Spastic editing and car/boat/foot/plane chase overload left a sour taste.

Apparently there was plans for this to be Timothy Dalton's third Bond film, but it fell through and then there was a bunch of legal mumbo jumbo that went about and put Bond on hiatus until Goldeneye came out.

I'm a big Bond fan and I'm pretty excited for this. Javier Barden will be a great villain, although I'm not too sure about the new Q. He's going to be be in his early 30's apparently, which just doesn't seem right somehow. I do like Daniel Craig, although my favourite Bond is Brosnan. I actually liked all the goofy gadgets and he had a bit more wit and charisma about him.

I really was expecting to see more of Quantum as well. The story was picking up momentum fast and I really don't want another Fleming novel plucked out of the archive and done over like all Bonds pre-Daniel Craig.

Interesting to see that Q returns, maybe we'll see some gadgets but not too many I hope. This Ben Whimshaw guy, I'm not too sure on but I really liked his performance in Perfume: Story of A Murderer. This also leaves a continuity error as Q ages while Bond stays fresh. Probably my only major gripe of him being reintroduced.

When I first read who the bloke who Q was gonna be, I also thought it wouldn't work. But then, Spooks (MI5 in the states) did a similar thing when they re-cast their tech master, and I warmed to the new one better than I did the old one. I am looking forward too see how this will work

Q returning younger would vibe with the theory some put out there that the titles of M, Q, and James Bond 007 are ambiguous and not unique to any one person. I don't know if I follow that at all but sometimes it feels like it could be that way.

Just thought I'd revive this topic with the recent release of the new Skyfall teaser trailer. What do you all think? A minute isn't much to go on, but it's enough.



Was quite surprised at the lack of any hint of a Bond theme tune, unless my ears are failing me. This way, it seems quite detached from the series. I don't know if that's a good thing. Also, Bond looks weathered in this film, which I really like - reminds me of the cynical old bastard we saw in the books. I've always thought Craig and Connery were the most accurate portrayals of Bond's character.

I have to say this is the only film I'm really looking forward to in 2012. I'm not revved about TDKR, and Avengers fell short for me because I haven't seen any of the previous "build-up" movies. I'm eager to see what Sam Mendes can do for us.

This is what I picked up from the trailer, too; Craig's portrayal of Bond is veering closer and closer to a truer version of the character, yet everything else surrounding the movie is veering farther from that special element that's been painted on the past twenty plus movies - especially the famous score - and it's hard to decide whether this is a good or not-so-good step in the franchise.

I respect the absence of ridiculous gadgets and the addition of more character focus as much as the next guy, but I do miss seeing the 007 traditions.

I think I (faintly) detected the Bond theme towards the end of the teaser, although they seem to have given a heavy modern/techno feel to it. Would like to hear an extended version before passing a judgement on it though.

I, too, miss seeing 007 rely on gadgets in certain cases as opposed to relying on just his instincts and fighting/survival skills in almost every situation. I don't mind their absence if the eye-widening action sequences are anything to go by, but the gadgets would add an extra something to it. That's what I feel, anyways.

James Bond has been getting worse and worse, If I would have watched The Skyfall Trailer without looking at the Title first (On Youtube) I would not of realised it was a new James Bond film at all!.

I'm sure anyone here would agree that Casino Royale - or even Quantum of Solace at that - could be easily degraded by the sheer quality of such masterpieces as The Man with the Golden Gun or Die Another Day.

Not to be confused with FALLING SKIES of course! I would take it to be a new James Bond game, not a film, but the books were already exhausted I thought? Time to move to new plots and adventures, with the new Bond of course. Since you guys were falling all over yourselves about the new Batman and the new Bond before, and I favor the past, I'd be shocked if you didn't like it, honestly!
