Welcome to my current favorite thread.
I'm in agreement with Zen and Harms-- this info has really put some big pieces together and gotten me lots more excited. I'm thrilled that Bond is (presumably) not going to end up the film with Camille in his arms, but might very well end up alone. That really does jive not only with Fleming, but, um...life.
And it opens the door for a relationship down the road that is like the literary Bond/Tiffany pairing-- Bond might
love her, but it doesn't work out in the long run.
I'm also thrilled about the moral ambiguity of killing the villain. It's so refreshing of them to hit psychological/philosophical issues that really resonate with real life like that. I'm not saying this will be a terribly
realistic film, but at least it won't be a cartoon or a melodrama. I'll give a prediction: Bond will waiver in his resolve to kill Greene just
long enough to give Camille the opportunity to do it herself, thus robbing him of the chance to know whether if would have really been right or wrong. Just my prediction. Hope I'm at least a little bit wrong, really.
I, too, was pumped to see Craig with the PPK. I don't care if it's his
gun or not; just the mere inclusion of a moment where he uses it is enough to seal him down to Bond in a way that can't be undone, IMO. Nobody can claim he's a black sheep b/c of the hair. He's just 007. (That probably made no sense right there, but it's how I saw that picture.)
Needless to say, I'm excited about the action. That's pretty much a given. And Quantum
! Good idea for introducing some familiarity into the title for the
film's detractors that don't understand what the phrase means. The lapel pin looks classy.
Fantastic news, keep it coming!!
I like that picture. He's running at full speed with gun drawn and probably full of angst, and he has a nice pair of shades on. Class.
I'll play devil's advocate: isn't it a bit Cruise in M:I-2?
He's missing the 8 inches of brunette hair all around his head and the Woo-rule-of-thumb second gun.
