    Eh, I don't think it makes any sense to judge a title without seeing the movie first. Me, I find that prospective title awkward, particularly in its resemblance to QoS' song "Another Way to Die."

    WTF is that Speed Racer crap doing in a Bond context? If you're looking for the next Die Another Day's invisible car-type embarrassment, consider your wait over, I suppose...

    It was revealed a few weeks ago. It’s so flashy that it looks more like car a parody movie of James Bond would drive.

    He never drives anything like that super car. I even called it the “ Bond mobile “

    The flashiest car Bond had was a lotus esprit.

    You don’t picture bond driving cars like a mclaren f1.

    Yeah, yeah, but it looks fun. Craig's Bond could use some fun.

    Don't much care for the car, but I certainly agree with this sentiment.

    I recall reading that as well. He even said 'his' Bond doesn't do things like that.

    But I also recall that after doing the scene and seeing the final product he sort of came around and agreed the scene made sense in context when it was all put together.

    Moore's Bond may have been a bit more jovial, but he was still dangerous to cross.

    The Aston Martin V8 is the same as driven by Dalton in The Living Daylights.

    Pictures kinda convince me it’s time for Craig to step down as Bond.

    I was just about to say that when i saw the pics, thought i had seen it before.


    He can't get the optional extras installed because he only has a Licence to Kill. lol

    I'm glad Waltz will be back, and I trust the filmmakers will be circumspect enough not to directly reference that nonsense about him and Bond being adoptive brothers. (At most, a vague and fuzzy reference to "old grudges" should suffice.)

    You know, if they'd have kept that under wraps, this might have been an awesome meta moment in the cinema. Announcing it now, I'm afraid, will take away that effect.

    It's both funny and sad to see not only the backlash from this, but also the oversimplification and misrepresentation of what's actually happening here.

    Lashana Lynch is not the "new James Bond"; she's the "new Agent 007" ... and yes, there's a significant difference.

    James Bond is the name of a person; 007 is a "callsign" that is no more the exclusive property of the aforementioned person named James Bond than the codename "Green Lantern" is the property of Hal Jordan.

    The interesting thing is the media is cottoning onto this and everyone is losing their minds.

    Cast your mind back to 2002 and Die Another Day. Which introduced Halle Berry as Jynx, Bonds Black, Female counterpart.

    Funny how in those primitive caveman days nobody batted an eyelid.

    Jynx was supposed to get her own movie but she didn't because die another day sucked. Nobody would have objected if she had though. Of course Jynx had a certain feminine sex appeal and her and bond had some fooling around which is seen as oppressive toxic masculinity or something.

    It's an interesting parallel though, it makes you wonder about this SJW vs Manbabies war we have right now and if we all wouldn't be better off if both sides just went away.

    Food for thought.
