The Dark Knight 2

Yeahhhhhhh, that title is incredibly misleading, but bear with me for a second. "The Dark Knight" is one of the best films of year and also one of the few times that was hyped up and delivered. I'm calling it now, "Quantum of Solace" is going to be just as awesome as "The Dark Knight."

Wow, you say, TPG is really putting it all out there. But after watching the trailer above and seeing "Casino Royale" for a second time, the new one will deliver for the following reasons.

1. The Cast: Daniel Craig is a total badass as Bond, however the exciting thing here is Mathieu Almaric, who was so great in last years "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly." He has played a slimy character before, he was an arm's dealer in Munich. He should be comparable to Craig on how magnetic he is on the screen.

2. The Stunts: Take a look at the trailer. There are boats, planes, cars, motor bikes, explosions, ropes, falls from high places, and everything else you would want. They also shot footage during the Palio de Siena, a horse race that is taking place while Bond is chasing someone, and I hear it's the best sequence in the film.

3. The Story: It takes place directly after "Casino Royale", and I deals with Bond tracking down the organization hinted at in that film. The Hollywood rumor mill reports that we will get a glimpse of the big boss of the organization, and he is none other than________(click for the surprise). This is just a rumor, but think about it.
