Casino Royale teaser

Here.

Well... it looks good, but that's what a teaser should be. I don't know if this will be enough to reinvigorate the franchise; how much of the original storyline from the novel has been modified or updated? The major failing of the more recent Bond films has been the plot/script, especially when they updated the format to make it more of a contemporary action film. Can Daniel Craig pull off Bond? I hope he doesn't get typecast, though I don't really have a good idea of what his acting range is like, having seen only Munich and Layer Cake.

Flipping through Premiere and Entertainment Weekly at the airports this afternoon (both of which are featuring their Summer movie previews), I think I only saw 2 or 3 movies of interest... I suppose I will be watching M:I 3 sooner or later, just to see how JJ Abrams has saved the franchise and put Tom Cruise to work... plus Miami Vice. Can't remember what the third one was... I suppose I will look at the magazines again on Monday while I am waiting for flights.

Over at aintitcool.com, there have been comments about how action heroes have the initials JB--Jack Bauer (24), Jason Bourne, James Bond, Jack Bristow (Alias), Jonas Blaine (The Unit)... interesting...

24 has been crazy this season, I am waiting to see how it ends...
