Could there actually be a second great sequel this year?

"The Dark Knight" was an outstanding sequel to "Batman Begins," a rarity in the movie world - think Godfather II, Aliens, and only a few other films (sequels in the Harry Potter mold don't count). But I've just seen the new trailer for the upcoming Bond film, "Quantum of Solace" and it looks like we could be blessed with a second fantastic sequel this year. Quantum is the followup to "Casino Royale," which I've steadily come to believe is the best Bond movie ever, due in large part to the brilliant Daniel Craig (watch the dark "Layer Cake" if you don't believe me...) as well as a kickass theme song on a par with Shirley Bassey's Goldfinger.

The countdown to November 14th begins...
