    Re Rog he also made The Wild Geese (my second favourite war film of all time) North Sea Hijack and Escape to Athena during his Bond tenure.

    In fact for anyone who doesn't think Roger Moore was a convincing cold blooded killer I really recommend The Wild Geese, inside the first ten minutes he forces two mobsters at gunpoint to eat a bag of poisoned cocaine, then leaves them dying in agony on the floor with a coldblooded farewell that makes Connery look almost camp by comparison.

    And it strikes me that 2 years between films gives Craig plenty of time to do other things, in fact given some of the underwhelming films he's done since Quantum it might be better for him if he didn't have so much time on his hands.

    Besides, I want a Bond film every two years and that settles it :lol:

    Wasn't there a big rumor that Rachel Weiz was supposed to be in the film?

    Whatever became to that?

    ^ I think you may be thinking of The Bourne Legacy.

    And that's probably the closes we'll get to some type of "Bourne and Bond" crossover.

    Even though it's not Matt Damon

    I had this weird dream overnight in which Skyfall turned out to be an Aliens crossover. It opened with a reception at MI 6 with M and a bunch of 00s - Spock was 001 - which was raided by terrorists to steal embryo facehuggers (which were inactive as they weren't quite ripe) from a stash of eggs, by pulling them out of the eggs and collecting them in a sack. Obviously Bond intervened...

    The theme song was great - I wish I remembered how it went, but all I remember is I liked it!

    Albert Finney is reprising his role in TBL and also appears in Skyfall.

    No...there actually was a big rumor that Rachel would be one of the Bond Girls in the film--it was around the time we first started hearing about Javier Bardem being the villain....

    Somehow, I get the idea that her role was given to the Greek girl (whose name escapes me--isn't that pathetic?) when, for whatever reason, Rachel's schedule proved problematic, or something....

    ^ I think the Rachel Rumour was based on little more than her relationship with Daniel Craig.

    Hmm. Perhaps....

    On that note...perhaps, were they ever to remake OHMSS...Rachel would be a no-brainer for Tracy, to Craig's Bond....

    The Skyfall teaser poster has been revealed, see it here:

    http://www.007.com/skyfall-poster-revealed/

    I'd post it here, but photobucket is being really shitty right now not letting me upload anything.

    Anyways, I like it, as a teaser poster it works, it's certainly classy. A good poster for celebrating fifty years of Bond. I can only hope the main poster is as good.

    ^ Yes, it's very classic 007 all right.

    And a trailer to be released on Monday! Yay!

    I do like that poster- simple, classy, it's Bond. Let's hope it's a sign that the gunbarrel will be front and centre, literally - at the start of the movie where it fucking belongs.
