My initial reaction:
I'm very positive about this, but I'm also a bit worried about one aspect. I desperately want Christoph Waltz to be playing Ernst Stavro Blofeld in this film, but I don't like the idea that he was in any way related to Bond in the past. It appears as though they're attempting to tie them together as surrogate brothers of sorts and to me, that's just unnecessary. Blofeld didn't need a linked backstory with Bond to have an amazing rivalry with him. That was already accomplished purely by having them on opposite ends of the good and evil spectrum. This trailer keeps things very vague, so my opinion could change for the better or worse with the second one, but I'm going to remain optimistic with a slight fear that that aspect could be a detriment to the story.
Am I going to see it?
You bet your ass! The 007 series has been one of my top favorite franchises since I first got into it in 1997. Even if this looked terrible, there would be no way that I wouldn't be watching it opening night. Skyfall had some flaws, but it was a very cool addition to the series and I'm very interested
Of course. It's a comic book movie. I see them all, unless they are some non-entity like Super. But just because they've got my $10 already doesn't mean that I'm seeing it because I'm pumped for it. Look forward to my review, where I most likely end up ripping it to shreds, unfortunately. Chronicle was cool, but this is only slightly better off from what it was several days ago. It's still fighting an uphill battle against everything that a movie like this shouldn't be facing. Poor marketing (what marketing?), nothing but bad publicity, and reports that there are already plans for rebooting it should it fail are indicators of why you shouldn't spend your money on it and be a sap like myself.
A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.What do you think? Is this another welcome addition to the franchise like Skyfall or is this going to be a step in the wrong direction like Quantum of Solace?
