Solve for M
On the eve of Casino Royale's U.S. premiere, I renew my only question since watching the teaser: If this is a return to Bond's beginnings, why is Judi Dench playing M?
Most likely it's not a return but a "re-imagining." Still, consider the following theories:
1. This is not the M who took office in GoldenEye, but a female predecessor.
2. This is the M from GoldenEye, and "James Bond" is an alias just passed from an agent resembling Pierce Brosnan to one resembling Daniel Craig.
