I Officially Hate Non-Americans (Just Kidding!)

QOS I Officially Hate Non Americans (Just Kidding!)

The day I marry my beautiful wife and the birth of my wonderful children; these are two dates I’m looking forward to.

Yeah, right… of course, those are B.S. I’m about as single as single gets and childless beyond imagination.

No, the real dates I’m looking forward to are the theatrical releases of The Hobbit and Superman: The Man of Steel whenever Warner Brothers officially announces the dates (both coming in 2010) and Indiana Jones & the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (this coming Memorial Day weekend!)

I also find myself becoming as giddy as a school girl when I hear news of the latest James Bond film Quantum of Solace. The previous outing, re-boot Casino Royale was without question, one of 2006′s best films. Daniel Craig added much-needed humanity and vulnerability to 007, becoming the first actor since Connery to truly make the character his own (in my opinion!).

Never has the phrase “James Bond will return” brought such applause outta film-nerds across the world. The only downside, of course, was we had to wait *gasp* two years for the next installment!

Now comes word that Sony Pictures plans on releasing QOS (or Bond 22) in the U.K. on October 31st. Meanwhile, France and Belgium will get the film on November 5th, and Germany and the Netherlands get it a day later on November 6th. And finally, at last, we chumps in the United States have get to see it on November 7th, 2008.

I realize the difference is only a few days. But I just can’t wait to see Craig return as Bond!

  1. That’s how it goes Jamie. Its the same for those in the UK when we release a film here it allways comes out days if not months later for them. So as the reviews come out here in the states anyone in the UK gets spolier info weather they like it or not.
    I think all these films and even tv shows should be released at the same time Worldwide.

  2. As the UK based Screen Ranter- I’ll try and get a spoiler free review for you :-)


  3. “giddy as a schoolboy”

    LMAO!!! Haha!! I didn’t think people really said that! :-D

  4. Could anyone slouch for a photo op and look more bored and disengaged? Stephen Hawkings would be more animated…while napping.

    Did you know that “Daniel Craig” is only a stage name? He’s so ugly, his last name is Link and his first is Missing.

  5. “Stephen Hawkings would be more animated”

    you realize this is a ‘still’ photo, right?

    Is the title still able to be changed? Quantum of Solace? Did they just starting throwing darts at bad highschool poetry when they came up with that?

  6. Sorry about htat last post – I didn’t realize how smarta$$ is was until I read it afterwards.

    But I agree about Daniel Craig / caveman, and when I first saw Casino Royale I wasn’t sure if I liked it or not because it wasn’t the Bond character we knew. Then after seeing it I really appreciated the new direction of the Bond films and I have to say Craig perfect as that Bond, IMO

  7. Su-weeet! Great dart board comment. I say Quantum of Solace would make a great rock band name–and the shortcut QOS is a cool acronym (for a band).
