Gossip Monkey – 6/11/06
Posted by Clint Morris November 6, 2006
This one time, at Bond Camp. I’m actually awaiting my invitation to the premiere on November 14th (the same date Clint gets to see the movie in Australia!). It’s being shown in every cinema apparently, in Leicester Square, with the ‘stars’ and guests being ushered into select picture houses. There’s been various reviews already, though most are bias. They either know Daniel Craig or have some link to the movie in some way. A pal of mine who has seen it though says that Mads Mikkelsen who plays the terrorist banker Le Chiffre in the movie is pretty weak as far as villains go and if they wanted to crank up Bond in a ‘Bourne’ way, then they haven’t succeeded. I don’t think you could ever do that with Bond. Q and Pierce had the idea to do Casino Royale and I imagine they, together, could be the only ones to make it trendier and ‘bloody up’ Bond.
