2012 is looking to be a better year in movies than 2011, a better year. In November the 3rd installment of James Bond reboot hits theaters. Not much is known about the plot, but suffice it to say James Bond will have evil bad guys to fight and a license to do what's necessary to save Queen and country. The official premise of SkyFall: "James Bond's loyalty to M is challenged over secrets from her past. When MI6 is attacked, it falls to Bond to seek out and eliminate the threat regardless of the cost to himself."
This installment continues the trend of slowing bringing back elements of the original series. In SkyFall, the 23rd Bond movie, "Q" returns to the series, played by Ben Whishaw. So we can expect to see some cool gadgets and maybe a little wit between "Q" and Bond. I've no idea who Ben Whishaw is, but I'm betting we will all know his face a little better in 2013. Judi Dench returns as the steely eyed "M" and Daniel Craig returns for what may be his last turn as James Bond, 007.
The James Bond franchise is now 50 years old, but lucky for us this oldest ever movie franchise still knocks them dead at the theater. Proof, along with Batman, that a reboot isn't always a bad thing.
