Looks good. Then again, I liked all the James Bond movies so far. I'll probably end up watching this one as well.

I heard he wouldn't be driving an Aston Martin in the movie but instead some sort of Ford. Seeing how AM is now owned by Ford perhaps it was the media screwing things up again like calling planes an Boeing Airbus 747.

Looks wicked I'll be seeing that the day it comes out (or before  Wink) for sure. BTW was any part of this shot in Dubai? A glimpse of somewhere in Deira seems to be in that trailer, or it could just be my imagination.

I know some of it was shot in the Bahamas - not sure about Dubai.

Geez that is one big-a$$ trailer--thanks for holding up my system resources, lol. Not that it wasn't worth it. Eva Green as Vesper Lynd = über-Bond Girl.

Definitely cool how it starts in b/w--gives the feel that the franchise is going back to its roots, as it were. Also, I loved how the 007 logo segues to become part of the "Casino Royale" titles--very very cool. Does anyone remember the "Matrix" and "Batman Begins" trailers? This one gives off that same sort of feeling of grit and venture, IMHO.

Quoting YOWza (Reply 6):

Nope, they shot in South Africa, though, as well as Italy and Prague. That's all the location shooting I remember (save for stuff done in England, of course).

Edit: I wanted to add that after watching it again, it seems to me that one or two of the shots look like they were done specifically for trailers and associated media. The best example is the zoom-across-the-table-to-Bond shot there at the end.

I like that shot, you expect Craig to say, "Bond, James Bond" but he just gave this look and the trailer ends. Can't wait for November...

It looks like this one is getting "back to the basics". No stupid invisible cars like the one in Die Another Day. Just from the trailer it looks like the best one since Goldeneye.

Bond movies have been more or less crap since they tried to follow up after Goldeneye... And I don't think I'll ever consider this new guy to "be James Bond". But I'll probably watch the movie sometime... though not in a cinema.

As much as I thought he was the consummate Bond--not necessarily the *best* Bond, mind you--he *has* gotten a bit too old for it. It's like Harrison Ford returning as Indiana Jones--not the greatest idea. Not only that, but we've seen Brosnan carry on his Bond schtick to other films as well, which dilutes the novelty of it, I think.

Quoting Thom@s (Reply 16):

Very true. But I think it was more because of an ever-escalating use of (and dependence on) gadgetry and pithy humor (why else bring in an ex-Parrot...er...*Python*  Silly for the new Quartermaster?) than because of any intrinsic plot exaggerations. I thought, by and large, the plots of TND, TWINE, and DAD were believable within the realm of the Bond universe; but the more you zoom in, the less the characters, gadgets, &c stood up.

Of course, without global enemy superpowers (or their remnants) or supervillians to fight, and an ever-escalating PC front, what is there left for Bond to fight that is current and relevant?

I'm a big Bond fan, but you also have to realize that ALL the 007 films have some element of hokey campiness in them. It's hardly a new phenomenon.

Personally, I don't care for this new Bond, but I'll probably see it nonetheless.

At first that's what I thought but having seen Daniel Craig in other films since I think he's a very good actor. Go watch Layer Cake or Munich.

Sean Connery and Roger Moore both made Bond films late in their film career, and the pictures were highly successful for the time.

Casino Royale looks a lot better than I was expecting, so does the new bond, he fits in perfectly, I still prefere Pierce Brosnan though.

Definitely looks better than I expected. I remember my uncle, a huge 007 fan, telling me the new Bond was going to be more physical and brutal, and it definitely looks like thats true. The only negative of that is no Q. But it looks great.

As stated in another thread, the infamous torture scene from the novel will be in the movie, so, yes, definitely more brutal

Which is fine by me. As amusing as John Cleese was as "R" and then "Q", I'd rather have Desmond Llewelyn than Cleese and no Q if no Llewelyn. Besides, a switch from gadget-centric might be a good thing after all.
