Is this the title of the next James Bond movie?

10.05.2011

Agent 007 has been benched for a while, but now that the studio financial situation is resolved, he's ready to get back into action. But the next movie obviously won't be called JAMES BOND 23. See how you feel about this:

SKYFALL

That's the name that Sony is apparently now registering as a Bond property.

SKYFALL would join other auspicious single-word Bond titles as GOLDFINGER, THUNDERBALL, OCTOPUSSY, GOLDENEYE and... MOONRAKER. (In fact, the title SKYFALL would seem to imply some sort of similar satellite or space station sci-fi as that Roger Moore absurdity.)

The movie is already slotted for release on November 9, 2012 and will be directed Sam Mendes (AMERICAN BEAUTY, ROAD TO PERDITION).  Aside from returning stars Daniel Craig and Judi Dench, we've heard Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, and Javier Bardem would be involved.

Production commences soon, so expect an official announcement in the coming days.

Extra Tidbit: Rumors that the next Bond would be titled CARTE BLANCHE, after the Jeffrey Deaver 007 book, were already denied by the producers.

I like it. Name it something too long and people will unfortunately just call it "the James Bond" movie. Anyways, Mendes, Bardem, Fiennes, and Craig sounds amazing, hope it all comes to fruition.

Hate It

Terrible title. Why not one of the last unused Ian Fleming titles, Risico or The Property of a Lady?

Carte Blanche is a much better title, but if it doesn´t fit the movie..

I am not a Sam Mendes fan at all. I thought both Jarhead and American Beauty lacked depth and subtlety...too much exposition is made obvious. Just my opinion. But the man crafts BEAUTIFUL visuals and I almost get giddy about how this movie is going to look. I could dig Sam Mendes as a franchise action director

I agree. Mendes tries way too hard. But his scope and production value will be good for Bond. Anything is better than Solace.

Well, it can't be worse then Quantum of Solace. At least we have a competent director.

Title is cool but I don't think Sam Mendes is the right guy to direct a bond movie. He's similar to Marc Forster in his experience with action-movies and we all saw how that turned out!

Someone obviously hasn't seen Road to Perdition, so their point is invalid.

Doesn't really matter

If this really is a Sam Mendes-directed Bond flick starring Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, and Javier Bardem, you can name it whatever you want...I'm still seeing it.

I like it

And I am confident it will be good. The only Bond films I Do not like are Die Another Day, never say never again and Moonraker (However the later has grown on me a bit over the years.

Sam Mendes?

Ugh, really? They couldn't get an action director? So they get a guy who only directs boring, overrated dramas? (Hello, American Beauty)

On the other hand, I am tickled at the thought of Javier Bardem potentially being a Bond villain. Make it happen Hollywood!

Suspicious

I'm a little suspicious about that as the title since the previous two films of this newest "reboot" have all been multi-word titles with at least one Letter 'O' in two different words so that they can form out the iconic '007' in the title.

Huh?

What is this one about...just get on with it already. We are a year past due for a new Bond and DG needs to get back to him after is last couple movies have not been so appealing.

It's not an awful title, but it doesn't seem very Bond-ish. Heck, Moneyball sounds more like a James Bond title. But as long as the movie is good I'm not going to make a big deal about the title.
