I like how they exclude the title from the poster. It will keep the school girls from giggling.

SW Episode 1 wasn't a cinematic masterpiece, but that poster was one of the best of all time.

I like the Bourne movies, but I enjoy the better Bond movies moreso, as at least Bond seems like he is enjoying it to some extent, where Bourne seems like he a suicidal killing machine. Plus I kind of laugh how Bourne just walks around in public and travels internationally with no money and old 'secret' passports never getting busted

Two quotes from Matt Damon about the differences:
Quote:
Bond is part of the system. He's an imperialist and a misogynist, and he laughs at killing people, and he sits there slugging martinis. It'll never be the same thing as this, because Bourne is a guy who is against the establishment, who is paranoid and on the run. I just think fundamentally they're just very different things.
Quote:
The Bond character will always be anchored in the 1960s and in the values of the 1960s. It's so anachronistic when you put it in the world we live in today that Mike Myers made a fortune with his own spy franchise [Austin Powers] - it makes for great comedy. Bond is an imperialist and a misogynist who kills people and laughs about it, and drinks martinis and cracks jokes. Bourne is a serial monogamist whose girlfriend is dead and he does nothing but think about her. He doesn't have the support of gadgets, and he feels guilty for what he's done.

I'd agree, Bond's immensely cooler because he's an imperialist and a misogynist, and he laughs at killing people, sitting there slugging martinis, so anachronistic.

Bond's probably voting for Arnold and McCain while Bourne is voting Nader 2008

Completely agree. I love how Matt Damon mentioned in an interview that the Bourne movies, unlike Bond movies, are steeped in reality. Yeah right - Bourne's passports never get tracked, a mid-level Russian NKVD agent can find him but the entire FBI can't, he breaks into a super-secure FBI building in Manhattan by...wait for it...using the stairs. Bullshit.

I love both franchises, but Bond will always be Bond

That's a stupid title, but I'm still really looking forward to this. Is Paul Haggis writing again?
