Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!
The Shanghai bits (at least those that I've seen) have a very "Blade Runner" look to them.
Which makes sense when you watch the documentaries on the Blade Runner Blu-ray and hear that the Los Angeles of Blade Runner already exists today in places like Shanghai.
I am looking forward to this. I am disappointed they didn't use another Fleming title (Property of a Lady is just dying to be used and Risico isn't bad either) but that's a minor thing. They have Q back (and I like the guy they've chosen based on his work in The Hour) and if Newton ends up playing Moneypenny, or even if they have someone else play her (Kate Winslet, please; see the Jeffrey Deaver Bond novel), all will be right with the world.
