I found a trailer for the upcoming Bond movie : Quantum of Solace. It looks extremely good and is set to be released in the UK at the end of October. I am a big fan of James Bond films and am glad Casino Royal reversed the downward spiral the franchise got into after Tomorrow Never Dies. I had mixed feelings about Daniel Craig as the new Bond, he seemed unconvincing in the months leading up to the release of Casino Royal; however looking back, I think it was a great decision. Prior to this, Bond films tended to be only loosely based on the original novels by Ian Flemming and treated Bond as though he was completely invulnerable, almost casting him as a super hero. This started to get really out of hand with films like Moonraker (which was similar only in title to the original novel) and the last two Pierce Brosnan films. With the return to the authentic, vulnerable, human Bond a new actor was really required and I think is really shows in Casino Royale that both the production team and Daniel Craig understood this. I simply can’t wait for Quantum! Below is the trailer.
