I am psyched for “Casino Royale!” A lot of people have had reservations about Daniel Craig and the new direction of the James Bond films. To them I say: check out the new trailer! This movie looks very cool.

I read Ian Flemming’s “Casino Royale,” the first Bond novel, last year. Looking at this trailer it looks like parts of the movie are going to be pretty faithful to the book.

Obviously, there are also plenty of parts that are completely original. But then, the book did come out in 1953. It’s in pretty serious need of an updating. Besides, it didn’t have a ton of action in it.

Don’t get me wrong. I like the Pierce Brosnan films a lot. But it looks like this more serious approach to Agent 007 is going to succeed in getting him back to his Ian Flemming, “Dr. No” roots.
