What: The next James Bond film, dumbie. But if you need some info (lol why?) here it is: In Skyfall, 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.
Who: Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, et al.
When: October 26th in the UK, November 9th in North America.
Where: Your local movie theatre, preferably in IMAX.

Long-winded OPs suck.

Anyway, I hate all you Brits that get to see it in 9 days. :(

That's a strange and somewhat erotic pose he's in.

Anyway, what's the big deal about this anyway? Are we so famished for a action movie that we'll settle for the sequel to Quantum of Sh it?

Why do I have to wait two more weeks after the UK release:cry:

I'm so hyped to see it, by the way. I've only seen the trailer once, I'm trying to keep my viewing experience as spoiler free as possible, and it looks amazing.

Dont hate us for being Brits, we cant help it. Besides Bond is one of our most famous Brits :P

The number one reason I am seeing this film is Naomi Harris:D:oops:

Quantum of Solace was a weird case. The writers strike was going on so Craig and the director had to finish up the script and plot themselves and neither have any writing experience. Plus this film has ridiculous pedigree behind it. Sam Mendes is directing and Roger Deakins is the cinematographer who is one of the best working today.

Which was a sequel one of the best bond films ever. Did you see the trailer for Skyfall?

And to be honest, Quantum of Solace is not a bad movie. There have been worse Bond films like The World Is Not Enough and the 60s Casino Royale (granted it's supposed to be a parody, but that doesn't bar it from being awful).

It got a great review at IGN, but that's the only review I've seen (talking about Skyfall). They compared Bardem's performance to Ledgers!!

Yeah the reviews are definitely glowing thus far. 97% on RT after 31 reviews and an 8.3/10 average is really good.

There's nothing really spoilery from them but still, watch at your own risk.

They've been pretty quiet on the story details and rightfully so. All that's really been shown about the plot is the villian and he looks awesome.

Really looking forward to this. 'Casino Royale' was fantastic, I thought 'Quantum of Solace' was at least fun enough to watch, and this looks great. Awesome cast, Deakins involvement is a huge plus, and the early reviews have been very positive.

Kim Jong Un smuggles diamonds in from Libya and uses them to make a giant laser mirror weapon thing in space. And only James Bond can stop him.

Does he stop them by building another mirror to deflect back to the laser space weapon?

Yes. He has to seduce the De Beers heiress in order to get their diamonds and make it. Then he goes to Macau and plays cards with Kim Jong Un while the laser wars happen.

I'm pretty lenient on Quantum of Solace. There's much worse films in the series like Moonraker and everything Brosnan made after GoldenEye.

Still, seems to be regarded as a worse movie then it actually is. Which is not to say it is very good or anything. Adequate I guess.

Can't say I'm looking forward to it. Craig is the worst Bond in my book. Totally lacks the charm so very well done by Connery and Moore.
