A expectativa sobre esse filme é muito boa... Vi o trailer mais uma vez, e tudo que penso é que será o melhor do franquia, mas ainda temos que aguardar pra vê-lo por completo... Daniel Craig como Bond está ótimo... E, putz!!! Só Bond pra dizer isso...

 

"Tenho coisas mais importantes a fazer do que observar o seu belo traseiro" - diz uma mulher.

"Você notou." - respondeu Bond, James Bond...

Interview: Daniel Craig

 

"Casino Royale"

Posted:   Thursday, November 16th 2006 12:11AM

Author:   Garth Franklin

Location: New York City, NY

At 38, Daniel Craig has amassed a large amount of experience in various

theatrical and cinematic works including "Road to Perdition", "Lara

Croft: Tomb Raider", "Elizabeth", "Sylvia", "The Jacket", "Munich",

"Infamous" and "Layer Cake".

 

 

Yet Craig, a talented

thesp with rugged Steve McQueen-esque looks and a chiseled muscular

body, became an overnight household name in October last year when it

was announced that he would be replacing Pierce Brosnan in the

long-running James Bond franchise.

 

 

 

Craig's hiring as 007 was controversial to say the least. With Brosnan

leaving under less than auspicious circumstances, the hiring of Craig

seemed doubly confusing considering that he bears little resemblance to

Bond's physical appearance in the past - notably his blond locks, blue

eyes and more ample physique.

 

 

 

Online fans, the tabloids and regular newspapers had a field day,

dismissing the film from Day One and reveling in the on-set gossip

pertaining to the injuries Craig sustained during the rough and tumble

filming. Fans cited his rugged, world-worn face as not suitable for the

pretty boy gentlemen spy.

 

 

 

Now, on the eve of the film's release, Craig is having the last laugh.

"Casino Royale" takes the Bond franchise back to its roots,

specifically the first book by Ian Fleming about the character, which

shows off the spy in his early days and how he became the icon he has

become.

 

 

 

The result is the most acclaimed film in the series in years, reviewers

are praising the movie to the high heavens with Craig in particular

winning almost unanimously glowing reviews for his take on the

character. Indeed many are saying that short of maybe Sean Connery,

Craig is the best Bond yet and the one most in line with Fleming's

original creation.

 

 

 

The other week Craig sat down with select press in New York to talk

about all his work on the film, where the franchise goes next and what

are his plans for the future.

 

 

 

You were crucified in the press when you were cast, did that affect you?

 

 

Daniel Craig:

It happened. People's passionate belief in this and what they feel, how

connected they feel with Bond, that's fine. The fact is there was

nothing I could do. It did affect me. It affected me for a couple of

days, but I got into myself and said, "We have to make this brilliant,

the best it can be, or the best I can make it". And that strengthened

my resolve. Throw the computer away and don't look on the internet.

That's the best thing to do.

 

 

Where would you like to see your character go in the next one? What are you going to add to the role?

 

 

Daniel Craig:

I don't think he's kind of rounded yet. I don't think he's finished. I

think he's got more lessons to learn, that for me is where we take it.

I'd like to see him get into situations we might not have possibly

imagined him in. That's going to be the difficult thing, trying to find

situations and scenarios that maybe take us out. In June of this year

when I finished this movie, the last thing on earth I wanted was to

make a Bond movie. I now feel more pumped up about taking this on

somewhere. It's going to be very interesting.

 

How did you prepare for the action?

 

 

Daniel Craig: I've always kept fit. I quit smoking, which was actually the best thing...

 

Did you stop drinking?

 

Daniel Craig:

No, God almighty no, I wouldn't have gotten through a week. That was

Saturday night. I kept fit. I got into the gym. I started running,

started bicycling, I pumped weights. It was twofold the reason really,

I wanted to look like he was physically capable. I wanted him to look

as fit as possible. I knew that to do the stunts I wanted to do; I had

to be physically fit to do them. I don't think I would have survived. I

was getting injuries all the time, everybody was, and the stunt guys

were getting injuries. You have the painkillers, you have the

physiotherapy, then they pat me on the backside and say "C'mon, get on

with it".

 

Was it your decision to do as many stunts as possible?

 

Daniel Craig:

Not mine alone, it has to be safe. Gary Powell, the stunt coordinator,

tested me out as we went along. He said, "I think you can do this". I

nodded and said, "Okay, I'll have a go".

 

Did you ever say no to a stunt?

 

Daniel Craig: No, I don't think I did.

 

 

How are your balls doing these days after that torture scene? Did you actually get hurt?

 

 

Daniel Craig:

The honest truth is that it was one of the simplest scenes to shoot. It

was on the page. It was a great scene in the book and had been adapted

so well. Basically a chair is set-up up, I sat in the chair, it has a

fiberglass bottom to it and I'm ensconced in that. It did crack. I hit

the ceiling and left. (laughs) Martin [Campbell, the director] and I

talked about it a lot. We've got to make it real. It's got to be a

scene that gets guys squirming and that was the first thing. And then I

said to myself that I don't want him to lose. Even though it's all

over, and it appears to be, Vesper's getting tortured. There's nothing

he can do, so the only thing that can happen is to still beat this guy.

I have no idea what that feels like and I never want to find out, but

the assumption is the more you get hit, the less it's going to hurt.

 

 

Were you self-conscious being naked?

 

Daniel Craig: Absolutely...(laughs) have you seen my other movies? Self-conscious doesn't really come into it. No.

 

How many films are you signed for?

 

Daniel Craig:

I'm signed for three films. Now I actually feel we're ready to do

another one. What we've set up in this one, we set up this idea that

there is an organization out there, maybe there's one person who's

responsible. The fact is now he has to go and get them. Obviously

there's an element of revenge involved. Hopefully all those things will

make it as rich an experience as this one.

 

How do you feel being a sex symbol?

 

Daniel Craig:

As far as I'm concerned, the sexiness, the sex symbol, it's not a

consideration. I didn't go out to play sexy in this film. It's nice...I

don't know, I'm embarrassed, I don't know what to say...

 

Bond is a sexual creature...

 

Daniel Craig:

The important thing in the movie is to see what that's about. He's a

driven guy. He likes tasting things, that's the best way to put it. If

he can, he will. Given the opportunity, yes, that's part of his

character, that's the risk he takes, combined with the way he enjoys

life.

 

This role will stick with you forever, your obituary will say James Bond...

 

 

Daniel Craig:

Jesus Christ! (laughs) Of course, but it's a very good problem to have.

It's not bad. I say that with gusto now, but it's why I did this. I'm

very proud of this movie. I'm very proud of what we achieved. It was a

lot of pressure to get it right. I think we have, and the Bond aspect

of it was all in place anyway. I've got some other things to do in life.

 

 

 

You

have two incredible scenes, reaction shots really, that I think defines

you as James Bond. The last shot of you and Mr. White is incredible.

Was that your idea or the director's?

 

 

Daniel Craig:

People ask me about that line. I didn't rehearse it. The first time I

said it was on the set. We did it a few times, that wasn't the only

take. There was a discussion. He hits Mr. White from the other end of

the garden. He's Bond, I don't want a handgun, I want an assault rifle.

I want a silenced assault rifle. I want to have that look at the end,

which is he means business. I didn't consciously try and be anything.

That's not how I approach things. I don't visualize. I just think, what

does this feel like? Does this feel good? It's up to Martin to shout

cut at the appropriate time.

 

As a follow-up, the reaction shots from the casino scene, there's no dialogue. How do you shoot that?

 

Daniel Craig:

I can't tell you how complicated that was. We rehearsed everyone on the

tables so everyone knew what they were doing. We had like five packs of

cards, all in the right order. They were all coded, so we start the

game at any point we want, and the cards are going down in exactly the

right order. I just went, now let's play poker. Mads [Mikkelsen] and I,

he's fantastic a great actor, it was like sparring. It was great fun to

do, just to get that dynamic going between the two of them, just

looking at each other, it was a fight. We never have a physical fight

in the movie. That was our physical fight. The card game, Martin and

the editor, getting that together, making that believable. Not

everybody knows about cards in the audience, but getting that together,

that's poker. That's really what it is, pushing those chips, bringing

up the tension of it. It's a whole bunch of people that made it happen.

 

 

"Die

Another Day" went clearly over the top. "Casino Royale" goes completely

in the opposite direction. Was that a consideration?

 

 

Daniel Craig:

Being over the top, Christ sakes, Mads weeps blood. But it's done

great, it's kind of a beautiful Bond moment. It's done with a dab. I

want it to be as stylish as it possibly can. What I wanted to maintain

is that you can do anything, if it's in the plot. If it's right and if

it feels good, then you can get on, because we are in a fantasy world.

That's the fact, this isn't real life.

 

 

Bond has some emotional moments in the film. How did you walk the line between being vulnerable and being tough?

 

Daniel Craig:

What did you think? (laughs) You have to answer that question. I tried

to walk the line very carefully. To not make it emotional would have

screwed everything that had gone on before. It's a Bond movie. I was

keen on the idea, this is James Bond, he is somebody, but it's how he

is in that situation that's interesting. Its how closed off he is

that's interesting. The fact that he's alone at that point, if somebody

walked up, he'd dry his eyes and walk away. But the fact is he's alone

and we catch a private moment. It fitted. That seemed to be the right

thing to do. There were other takes that maybe were a little less

emotional, but we played around it.

 

Did playing an intelligence agent in "Munich" help at all to play Bond?

 

 

Daniel Craig:

No, it's a different deal. There are things about guys who are in the

army. They're very particular, they have to be. Bond is kind of like

the exaggeration of these things, down to the cufflinks. But it's a

particular thing because there has to be a sense of order to these

things. Then he can react to it. With that character, there was a sense

of that. I promise you I wasn't trying to do something similar.

Spielberg would sometimes play the Bond theme.

 

Have you spoken to Pierce Brosnan?

 

Daniel Craig: I spoke to Pierce. He's been great. He's been very supportive.

 

So he didn't curse you out?

 

Daniel Craig: (laughs) No, he's been great. He said, "You have to go for it".

 

Getting back to all the criticism, the movie is great. Would you like to tell the doubters to fuck off?

 

Daniel Craig:

No, that's not the way I am. That doesn't interest me in the slightest.

I set out to make a good movie. That was never an issue. I stand by

that, I've got better things to do.

 

What's your drink of choice?

 

 

Daniel Craig:

Depends on how drunk I want to get. I love vodka martinis. I know it's

a cliché. I love them, but they have to be good. They mix very good

vodka martinis in this town, as I've found out.

 

 

Are you ready for the fame that comes with being Bond?

 

Daniel Craig:

I don't know. I don't know how you prepare yourself for that. I've

never been in this game for that, I've never gone looking for it. I've

not tried to physically avoid it, but I've been more interested in the

work. There are some very pleasant things, but also some negative

things that go along with it. It's sort of juggling those things.

Privacy is important. Anybody who doesn't think that, they're crap. But

I know I'm going to lose some of that and that's something I'll have to

deal with.

 

What's your favorite Bond film?

 

Daniel Craig:

"Dr. No" and "From Russia With Love", they're great, just the best.

They're two of my favorite movies. Sean Connery being physical, scary,

complicated, bad, all those things about that character. It's a great

character, it's something that he created that's lasted this long.

Those two are very special.

 

What does Bond do to your schedule? For a decade you'll have one every other year. Is there time in between to do other stuff?

 

Daniel Craig:

I don't think we'll start shooting until the end of next year. So next

year is clear. Why, you got something? My agent is outside. (laughs)

 

What if Scorsese or Spielberg calls you for a role? Will they wait for you? Or does Bond take precedence?

 

Daniel Craig:

Nothing is stopping me from doing anything. I haven't got a golden

handcuff. I'm under contract, but I'm not under exclusive contract.

 

What do you do in your spare time?

 

Daniel Craig:

Very little, I like fishing, I like painting; I like painting fish.

(laughs) I get away. I try to go somewhere. There are a couple of

places, which I won't tell you about, that are very private and very

nice. I don't see family from one month to the next, so I have to go

back and reconnect and make sure they still like me. Do those sorts of

things.

 

Your next film, "The Visiting", is that a remake of "Invasion of the Body Snatcher"?

 

Daniel Craig: It's based on that.

 

What else do you have lined up?

 

Daniel Craig: I'm in the middle of shooting "The Golden Compass".

 

 

You play Lord Azrael. In the first book he doesn't have much to do.

 

 

Daniel Craig: Thank God (laughs)

 

In the third book, you're going to come back where he has more to do?

 

Daniel Craig: I hope it does. The third book, he has more things to do. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Ou então um Satânico Dr No ... ou Goldfinger !

 

Os dois melhores e com as duas melhores Bond Girls : Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress , maravilhosa naquele biquini branco) e Pussy Galore ( a mais polêmica . Até o nome é polêmico ! 06 ).

 

Parece que a Eva Green foi a melhor escolha para Bond Girl , em um bom tempo ...

Daniel Craig não me convence como Bond. Vi o trailer e a impressão não foi das melhores...Há tempos' date=' desde o primeiro Pierce que a franquia perdeu aquele tempero inglês e passou a ser um "simples filme de ação". Enfim, verei quando sair em DVD.[/quote']

 

Dá bobeira não. Assista no cinema, está com 95% de aprovação não é a toa não, e agradando os críticos mais ferrenhos. Eu falo isto, pois acho m disperdício pagar para ver em DVD o que se pode ver no cinema...

Acho Live and let die legal' date=' mas não a melhor canção. Serve mais como trilha sonora ao longo do filme.

Para ser boa, tem que ser mais lenta, mais clássica, com estilo. From Russia with Love é o melhor exemplo, mas gosto bastante do All Time Hight do Octopussy.

gosto dessas tb Conan, são finissimas, mas prefiro as mais agitadas, que proporcionam mais clipa de ação por exemplo Duran Duran - A View To A Kill e A-Ha - The Living Daylight16alem do som de Viva e Deixe Morrer (Live And Let Die) que é ótima...03

Eu também gosto bastante do A View To A Kill...A que o A-HA compôs também é bacaninha (mas prefiro a do Duran Duran mesmo). Mas na verdade, cada música se encaixa com os tipos de filmes diferentes. Moscou contra 007 e os filmes do Sean não são a mesma coisa dos filmes do Timothy Dalton. Mas eu gosto de cada um ao seu jeito. Só a fase do Pierce que eu acho irregular, irregular não, decrescente. Goldeneye foi ótimo, mas cada filme que passava fica pior que o anterior, até chegar no fundo do poço com Die another Day. Em relação às músicas, a fase do Pierce não teve nenhuma boa não.

realmente as trilhas sonoras da serie com Pierce Brosnan não ajudaram muito na minha opinião a unica q se salvou foi Tina Turner com Goldneyer, as demais com Garbage e Sheryl Cow não gostei muito não, com Madonna então, deixou a desejar tb...confesso q não gostei dessa musica tema do Cassino Royale tb naum0603 achei fraquinha.;...

Engraçado que a do Cassino Royale me lembrou em alguma coisa a do Duran Duran e do A-HA. Mas de início não me empolguei também não, mas depois de algumas vezes, ela fica boa...pelo menos melhor que as anteriores.

Quanto a da Tina Turner realmente está acima do nível das demais da nova geração. Mas parece que tentou misturar os gêneros, ou atualizar as músicas mais clássicas para algo mais moderno, aí ficou meio estranho.

 

Não sei porque, uma música que eu acho que tem cara de música de 007 é I saved the world today do eurythmics...06 mas parece muito mesmo, principalmente com a fase clássica. Até o nome...

Eu gosto de " Goldeneye " da Tina Turner e " The World Is Not Enough " do Garbage . Já " Tomorrow Never Dies " da Sheryl Crow e " Die Another Day " da Madonna são podres .

 

Aliás , o da Madonna consegue ser o pior tema de todos os tempos do 007 !!!!! 11  O que ela tinha na cabeça quando fez um tecno tão vagabundo e nada ver ??!! O clipe até que é legalzinho ...

 

Os temas que eu mais gosto são " Goldfinger " ( Shirley Bassey) , " Live And Let Die " (Paul MacCartney ) , " Nobody Does It Better " ( Carly Simon) e " A View To A Kill " ( Duran Duran) .

Nossa!!! Que filme doido!!

 

Daniel Craig atua muito' date=' a história se encaixa perfeitamente, e de praxe, temos as velhas cenas de ação ultra-sacadas!

 

Apesar disso, tem um erro de continuidade muuuuuito tosco! Hahaha!!

[/quote']

 

conta pra gente ai q erro é esse0606

 

Vou deixar isso como Spoiler:

 

Quando eles vão jogar Poker, cada um tem que digitar a sua senha, para no caso de ganhar, escolher a conta que o dinheiro fosse cair. Bond digita uma senha, que a câmera mostra detalhadamente.

Quando Bond ganha, e vai pegar o dinheiro, ele digita uma senha um pouco diferente do que a tinha digitado antes
