The latest James Bond movie "Skyfall" has a new trailer out


I am a big 007 fan. This trailer has me concerned though, I hope they are not over reaching with this movie. Daniel Craig just does not seem to have a good Bond look in this movie either. I have liked how they made his adaption to the character more realistic than some of the 70's and 80's mostly crap Bond movies. (a few good ones thrown in) and Pierce Brosnan was good here and there but mostly not so good IMO.

Casino Royale is IMO one of the best of the bond movies and Quantum of Solace was decent. I have some concerns on this one though, I hope its just a crappy made trailer of the action scenes.

Looks like it should be called "M". Better than QoS, but I agree Craig's Bond look is lacking this time round.

We get to meet the new Q.

The more realistic, darker Bond reboot has been a winner IMO. Extremely well written scripts and top-notch production.

I loved how the second movie started minutes after the first ended.

I hear Q is young in this movie, that makes me unhappy.
Remember we are still in the reboot of a younger Bond still somewhat new to the job of a 00 agent. Perhaps after the hiatus and the last movie, QOS which took place immediately following CR, they can use the years to season Bond up a bit. But that would still put him in the mid sixties Connery era of being in his mid to late 30's. And Q would not be a Geriatric.

I am hoping these trailers out so far are just not that well done. They have so far done a terrific job of keeping the character as he was created to be by Ian Fleming and while making the action as intense as ever (moreso IMO) by the realism of what Bond really is. There have been times where the movies and character have gone off the deep end. Some of the Roger Moore movies got into almost slapstick comedy, and with the Brosnan era, the techno gadgets would get to be a bit much. And the character that PB adapted just was a little on the weak side, both physically and mentally as well. I really do hope they just keep sticking with what has worked great so far with DC.
