    The Omega was pretty blatant where the camera pans to his wrist clearly showing off the watch. I don't remember the last 2 films doing this; I only remember CR specifically mentioning Omega.

    I noticed the following placements:

    VW
    Omego
    Heineken
    Macallan
    Jaguar
    Agent Provaceteur
    Bose


    The Bose one was the most obvious to me because it was in one of the rooms had wall mounted speakers which were totally out of place and there wasn't even any music playing. I think it was the yacht.

    I noticed Heineken when Q and Tanner were laying the bread crumbs for Silva. Tanner was drinking one and took it away from his mouth as Mallory walked in.

    The Coke Zero ad before the movie featured the Astin Martin too (the protagonist decides to use the run-down "motorcycle" instead). Did you see the same one in the US?

    No Coke Zero ad before the movie at my theater. They did have I believe it was a phone ad with Bond before the movie started though.

    Quite observant! I didn't even realize 1/2 of these.

    There were several Bond ads (including the Vario ad.. which wasn't too great).

    Here's the Coke Zero ad (not even 720p.. seriously, Coke Zero?):

    the aerial shot of the DB5 going down the straight country road was the best shot of the movie.....along with the shot of it parked on the side of the road and bond standing by it...

    One to add to the product placement list: Scrabble. Q's mug.

    Hated the suits -- never mind the tightness, they were also extremely Italian in styling (shoulders, breast pocket, etc.). And one of the first shots shows Bond with a cuff button undone. Please.

    Loved the Aston Martin, especially the irony of making it a bit clunky and uncomfortable. Wish there's been more irony elsewhere. I thought the franchise had got over not knowing what to do with women beyond the bed and the secretary's desk.

    I wonder why they chose this suit styling for him this time around.

    Casino Royale nailed the wardrobe, imo.

    I'm surprised to hear the Heineken placement was not more pronounced considering production of the film itself was in some dire financial difficulties.

    Everyone at my club was talking about it. Although there was someone who was 24 being the most verbose and I remember in the trailer the villain mocks the whole Bond concept ("England. The Empire. MI6. So old-fashioned..."). At some point for Bond #31 or #33 it's going to fly over people's heads right?

    And yes, I'm glad that Heineken didn't play a big role. Nowhere nearly as much as in Transporter.

    You mean during the "reveal" scene?
