Anyone else see this?

" 'Bond 24' confirmed for 2015, Sam Mendes and John Logan both to return "


I must say I am very excited by this news, as Sam Mendes is one of my favourite directors, and think he did a brilliant job on Skyfall.

I hope this also means a return with DOP Roger Deakins, and composer Thomas Newman... A holy trinity as far as I'm concerned.

Great news but I agree about the Adele song - I think it's probably due to the amount it was played on radio which to be honest I can't think of one Bond song I would listen to outside of sitting through it at the start of the film.

I appreciate the musicianship and production of these songs but they don't make very good radio songs IMO.

I'm disappointed by this news as there was nothing in Skyfall that I really liked.

I just found the whole film very average. At least I'll go into this new film not expecting much.

Thought Skyfall was ok, but nothing special! I like Daniel Craig as Bond, but the plots for the 3 Bond films he's been in have been poor!

Skyfall to me was a filler film, from CR & QoS to the next lot, and as such was ok, but not nearly as good as CR.

Just like with Goldeneye - really enjoyed Daniel Craig's first Bond. Just like with Brosnan they seemed to get less interesting but at a faster rate.

If it's anything like Casino Royale, then yes please. That was utterly brilliant - and not just because of Eva Green.

I prefer Skyfall over Casino Royal, but its a very close thing... QoS felt like a step back, and seems like an older film that hasn't aged too well; though its still better than most, if not all, of the Brosnan stuff.

Skyfall is a great looking film too, and that is important for me.

I keep looking forward to each Bond film, only to get disappointed by them.

Highlight over the last few for me was the parkour bit in Casino Royale. Rest just felt like a generic action Bourne-U-Like. Apart from Quantum of Solace, which was just dull throughout.

So going on with low hopes for this one.

I have mix feelings about skyfall, over all I liked the film but I absolutely hate the aspects of the older bond films creeping back in like moneypenny, Q and so forth, I like the direction the franchise has taken and don't want to see it dragged back down into the crap that nearly made it irrelevant so few years ago
