The teaser trailer for the new Bond movie, Casino Royale, is now available online.
- With the black-and-white opening, for a second I thought they were making this a period piece.
- M’s line about “I knew it was too early to promote you” makes it sound like it IS a period piece, of sorts….they’re revamping the character to the beginning of his Double-0 career.
- I had thought they were going to darken his hair, but I guess not. No matter– after seeing Daniel Craig in “Layer Cake”, I’m confident he’ll be an excellent Bond.
- M refers to Bond as a “blunt instrument.” Woo-hoo!!!
- Lots of action shots. I suppose casino shots don’t make for an exciting trailer.
Could this be a “For Your Eyes Only”-esque move away from the gadget-laden superhero tone of the recent films? I really hope so. The teaser has me VERY hopeful.
