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

    Great poster with an appropriate level of mystery.

    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[​IMG]

    I will come as no surprise then, as both an imperialist and a misogynist, that I prefer Bond. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    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[​IMG]

    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 [​IMG]

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

    Its probably because they are still thinking about changing the name.

    OK - I understand that the machine gun is a nod to the end of Casino Royale, but c'mon, shouldn't Bond really be using a Walther PPK?

    Give him a hat in this poster and all of a sudden he's Elliott Ness. What's that all about?

    I don't like it.

    I guess "James Bond: Hit in the Balls With a Knotted Rope 2" was less an appropriate title.
