‘Skyfall’, or the New James Bond Movie Teaser Trailer is Here

I don’t know if you guys are into the James Bond movies, but I’ve got to say—this new one, this ‘Skyfall’, looks totally badass. The film is set to drop in October of this year. From IMDB:

Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

The best thing about this movie is probably the fact that Ralph Fiennes is in it, because I just love Ralph Fiennes. Even before he was Voldemort, I loved Ralph Fiennes, and you want to know what movie made me fall in love with him, dare I admit it? ‘Maid in Manhattan‘. Yup. I said it. It’s totally one of those guilty pleasure movies that I watch every time it comes on TBS or OWN or whatever other cheesy network airs it as their Saturday afternoon feature. Others in the film include Judi Dench as M, and Javier Bardem, and that’s about all for big-name actors and actresses.

Me, I was a big fan of Pierce Brosnan when he played Bond (and I still am, and I guess that’s just my disjointed way of saying, “Pierce Brosnan was my favorite Bond”, OK?), and I guess Daniel Craig is alright, but … I don’t know. Something about him just doesn’t fit all that entirely well as The James Bond, you know? The movie looks good, but I think it’d be loads better if there were another actor portraying Bond. Daniel Craig’s nowhere near the worst Bond, but he’s definitely not anywhere near the best, either.

Who was your favorite James Bond?

  • I’m in — looks like winner. You know who I think might have made a good Bond? Clive Owen. I would really like to see him take on that role. I thought Brosnan was not really used to his potential, considering what a really great actor he is. They made his Bond waaay too damn sober and stiff. If you ever get a chance, see “The Tailor of Panama” and the role he plays in that — that’s how he should have been able to play the role of Bond.

  • I think Roger Moore was the handsomest Bond ever but he possibly lacked the the ferocious determination and ability to drop into ice-for-blood mode that Sean Connery, Daniel Craig and yes, Clive Owen all embody.

    But damn, Roger Moore is a devilishly handsome and totally personable dude, and I’ve always been a fan.

  • I would have to agree with Nicole – I thought Roger Moore was the best. He had the suaveness down without being smug or smarmy. Maybe it is because he is the first Bond I ever saw? Pierce was really good as well, but I have always been a fan of Roger’s Bond…..

  • Just had a thought. Wouldn’t Jon Hamm make an interesting Bond!!!!

    Yes, Jon as Bond. I could totally see it. And he is just as handsome as Roger!!!!

    Chant it! Jon for Bond!….

    Guess you guys can tell I don’t have much to do today :-B
