    (Honestly, this is my favorite of the honest trailers series by a mile.)

    I believe Craig is signed for 2 more films including SPECTRE.

    It really should be. He's too old to be considered hot anymore. Like George Clooney :(

    If Michael Fassbender isn't the next Bond, it would be a travesty.

    Tom Hiddleston would make a great Bond. OR Sony could go full Hollywood and cast Liam Hemsworth and target a younger audience.

    ^ Trailer definitely looks great. More dynamic action scenes, compared to Skyfall's car chase at the beginning of the movie and house fight scene at the end.

    The trailer for Skyfall was completely tame, compared to Spectre. Not sure if Spectre will be a critic darling, but I, for one, love the comeback into action.

    I've loved all the Daniel Craig Bond movies, and this one looks like it could be the best!

    All the Craig ones are great. If they hold up over time he leaps near the top of the Bonds imo

    Bond movies to me have only been as strong as the villain... Christoph Walz, the end!

    As a lifeling Bond fan, I gotta say.....

    Best movie (BY FAR) was Casino Royale.

    Skyfall was just 'okay'. The good parts helped me ignore the ridiculous and stupid parts.

    One of the great qualities about Casino Royale was its departure from the old stereotypical clichés that had caused the older movies to turn sour. I disagree with people here who say "bring back this" or "bring back that". Doing so just invites the movies to turn stale again.

    I want a great story, with great characters and great dialogue. Props and special effects should only be secondary to those critical elements and the old clichés should be left out, possibly with an occasiona, new, humorous quip that shouldn't feel forced (such as, "that last hand nearly killed me")

    I am hopeful but skeptical with Spectre.

    It's a shame that Monica Bellucci didn't do Bond 10 years ago. She still looks great for her age but she's very old now. She would have been the perfect Bond girl 10 years ago.
