    I know some people didn't like the idea of Craig as the new Bond, but I really like this trailer. With the whole Casino Royale remake, and the idea of a 'young', inexperienced Bond, he seems to work really well.

    Went back 7 pages and didn't see it, so hopefully this isn't already posted.

    I remember when someone posted the teaser a few months back, and this new trailer doesn't change my opinion.

    This looks like a good Bond flick. No real different than some of the Brosnan ones, with the obvious exception of Craig. The problem is, Craig is supposed to be the younger Bond, but he looks OLDER than Brosnan. He looks old and haggard. Which is fine, unless you're trying to say it's Bond just starting out.

    I still think they should've gone with Colin Farrel.

    It is gonna be a good Bond film (I hope), but it is still a little bit difficult for me to accept Craig as the new Bond. Somehow, something in his looks, does not say: "Bond. James Bond."

    I like his looks, if he is indeed meant to be a younger, rougher James Bond.

    I"m not sure which Craig you guys are looking at, but he sure as hell looks younger to me. Not as pretty, but younger.

    He doesn't much make me think of movie Bond, but as novel Bond...

    Looks good... he doesn't look old as such, but more weathered.

    I'll be seeing this, I've always liked Bond, although nothing will ever top The Spy Who Loved me, skiing off a cliff with a Union Jack parachute? Submarine Lotus? Best Bond film ever!

    However Craig turns out, he can't be any worse than Roger Moore in his last few Bond films.

    I don't want much from this movie, I just want it to be better than Die Another Day (which won't be all that hard to manage).

    I'll wait for official (and moviewatchers') reviews on this movie before I decide to go see it at theater or not. I still don't like the new Bond (my choice is Hugh Jackman) but at least they are taking Bond to its roots and no more of those outrageous action scenes that are way too played out.

    Same here; that's what I like about him. Novel Bond was always better than Movie Bond IMO.

    I'll see the movie, but to me there's something wrong with a blonde bond.

    I don't mind the whole 'look' concerns (well, unless they tried to sell us a 300lb Bond) seeing as how if you follow the series you're making huge leaps with Moore-Connery-Dalton-Brosnan, etc. There isn't enough continuity there for it to bother me much.

    I'm much more interested in the story and direction, with this 'younger' bond, a more serious tone, and a slightly more vicious feel to Bond. I like that.

    Amen. First one I saw, too, which is why I'll always be a Roger Moore guy at heart.

    I think Brosnan really brought a lot to the role, and very quietly played some interesting things that gave some new texture to the character, but most of his films just sucked. DAD started out great, but went downhill fast.

    And I have to take a small issue with Predaking. The outrageous action scenes are fine for a Bond film, within reason. The SWLM ski sequence is a perfect example of what works. I think the plane fight at the end of Living Daylights works too. But when they feel staged (raptor scene in TWINE) or rely on SFX (Moonraker, DAD), that's when they go wrong.
