The James Bond film, Skyfall, has us all excited!

MGM has finally got it off the ground.  The Bond sequel that has been delayed time and time again.  The trailer premiered a few weeks ago, but I love it so much I decided to post it anyway.  The rebooted James Bond franchise has been great so far (even with the mediocre Quantum of Solace).  Casino Royale was the edgy reinvention of the character made famous by the likes of Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan.  Daniel Craig gave us our first blonde and troubled Bond.  The trailer below is to Skyfall, the third in the current series.  It's directed by Oscar winner, Sam Mendes; and stars Oscar winners Ralph Fiennes and Javier Bardem (playing the villain).  Check out the trailer and my comments after.

I really really like what I'm seeing.  The action is reminiscent of Casino Royale with a pinch of the absurd.  But Mendes has created a tone that works will with the actors in the film.  Craig will surely turn in another fantastic performace, as well as the great Judi Dench.  But Bardem just gives me the creeps.  That hair, and that absent look on his face as he intimidates Daniel Craig is crazy good.  I can't wait to see this.  How about you all?
