Hey, at least it isn’t Quantum of Solace (or Octopussy, The Spy Who Loved Me, or Die Another Day, for that matter), right? Well, it appears that the 23rd James Bond film may finally have a title, and, in the tradition on vague, one-word titles in the Bond franchise, it could be worse: Skyfall.
While this is by no means confirmed, /Film has it that Sony “has registered URLs such as skyfall-themovie.net, jamesbond-skyfall.com, and others that lend credence to the idea that Skyfall will be used,” and, again, let’s just all thank God it’s not Skyfum of Quantfall or Quantsky of Fallace or whatever the hell. Seriously, that title was just ridiculous.
The Sam Mendes-directed film is set for a November 9, 2012 release, meaning we’ll have a whole year to debate whether or not this is the actual name for the film, and then debate whether or not it’s any good. Honestly, I sometimes wonder why they Sony doesn’t just drop the hip, affected Bond film titles and just put some truth in advertising, and call Bond 23 something like, Daniel Craig Whips The Everliving Hell Out of Some Disfigured And/Or Handicapped Villain and His Various and Nefarious Henchmen While Occasionally Knocking Boots with a Model… Part 23.
What do you think of Skyfall as a title?
