    I know a lot of people have been hating on Daniel Craig ever since he was announced, but having seen only the trailer, I'm gonna go out on a limb and predict this film to be the vital shot in the arm that the Bond franchise needs. I'll even go further and suggest that Craig will give Connery a run for the money in the 'Best Bond' department.
    I think he's a severely underrated actor and it's cool to see him getting his due. I'm very interested in seeing how he's gonna play Bond. I think this movie is going to kick ass... And I'm rarely wrong. If you haven't seen the trailer yet, here it is...

    Looks like they're stripping it of all the cliched innuendo and gadgets and taking the material much more seriously.

    'Bout time, I say.

    The tv spots are getting plentiful these past couple days, even teasing us with glimpses of the opening sequence in the first to use the theme "You Know My Name" in it. The video for the theme itself even premiered this past week on an MTV Making the Video. I am very, very much looking forward to the movie. It looks to be very good. The early press reviews seem to be loving it too.

    I'm itching to see this, its about time that we had an actuall new Bond film rather then just a third rate action movie with the Bond name slapped on it

    I'm not a big Bond fan really (just because I have yet to invest the time in really watching a lot of the films) but at first I was in the "haha that isn't Bond eww" crowd when they announced this guy as the next one but I realized pretty soon how close minded and silly that is so it doesn't really bother me anymore. I'd watch it, sure, but not being a big nerd for Bond I really doubt I'll be busting down theatre doors for it.

    Well said, man. I'm hoping this is far more like the books, than the last few crapfests have been.

    I might rent it.. Funny thing with my handle having 007. about 6 years ago i was a much bigger Bond fan.. Now basically I'm no longer as interested in it. Still think they are good movies and all, just not for me as much. I'll probably pass.

    Hmmm...people bashing a franchise because some movie makers decided to give it a makeover before investing millions of dollars in it. But now, lots of peple are talking about how excited they are. This seems a bit familiar...

    -Tony!
    Also excited for Bond

    Maybe I stand alone, but I miss the days when bond movies werent action spectaculars. And were about a spy, who was also a pimp.

    Nonetheless I still look forward to this new bond movie. Though connery will never be beat.

    Until one realizes that "Casino Royale" is actually an attempt to get back to the Bond source material and be truer to said material, as opposed to doing yet another film that is "Bond" in name only.
