Even based on the trailer, it's very apparent that it's an accident. Eve is aiming at Patrice (the man Bond is fighting on the train) and misses, hitting Bond by mistake.

As for Eve vs. Severine, I believe Eve is the main Bond girl.

Maybe there isn't even a main "Bond girl" for this film. That'd be a nice change, actually.

I just want to see Craig end one of his films in the arms of the main Bond girl. I have a feeling it's not going to happen in this one. That's one staple I'd wish they'd return to the series, like they have with Q.

Craig's films have more in common with the endings of some of the Fleming Books---more downbeat. Moonraker, for example, he doesn't get the girl and yet he's kinda okay with it.

It's a refreshing change actually. Seems more grounded.

I actually wouldn't mind seeing a Moonraker style ending where he tells the Bond girl he loves her and she reveals she's married (or engaged, it's been a while since I've read it).

I'm not suggesting it need happen every film, but I just want one Craig film where he ends up in the arms of the Bond girl. I'm sure a lot of others would love to see that too.

Well, no reason he couldn't get her at the end...only to find out she's also just looking for some theraputic nooky before moving onto the next assignment or whatever.

Based on a few lines of dialogue from Casino Royale, I think the Craig Bond prefers married women anyways. "Less complicated."

That's also a lot like the Fleming Bond.

I need to reread Casino Royale. That was always my favorite Bond novel. Short, but sweet.

Yeah, there was a break from the last two, so it wouldn't be a bad return for this one. Just because it's going to remove excessive camp doesn't mean some of the staples can't come back. Quantum of Solace ended with Bond growing into Bond as we know him.

Hopefully they have an interesting script this time unlike Quantum of Solace. What a waste of a movie that was.

Well, for all we know, the trailer was edited to make it look that way. Or perhaps...she saw her chance, and a way to cover it up.

As for Eve vs. Severine, I believe Eve is the main Bond girl.

Indeed? I'm curious as to how you came across this info....

I'm a moderator over at the CommanderBond.net message boards. That kind of info just crops up. This time it's mostly through people who have seen call sheets, or storyboards.

I will concede that Bond getting shot could be on purpose and part of a cover up. But most of what I've heard and read says otherwise.
