James Bond 23 Gets Oct. 26, 2012 U.K. Release Date; 2 Weeks Before America

     June 2, 2011

If you’re a James Bond fanatic and want to see director Sam Mendes take on the character as soon as possible, start saving for a ticket to the United Kingdom.  That’s because MGM and Sony Pictures have set a October 26, 2012 release for Bond 23 in the U.K., which is two weeks before America (November 9, 2012).  Production on the 23rd installment is set to begin later this year.  In case you missed our previous stories, Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes have both been in talks with producers about taking on two separate roles, with Bardem being offered the villain.  While I loved Casino Royale, I thought Quantum of Solace was a missed opportunity.  However, Daniel Craig was great in both films and I can’t wait for the next installment.

    This sounds bad, as I do really enjoy Daniel Craig in the role, but I do hope to one day see Michael Fassbender in the role. He’s more than perfect for it and would be a less hard hitting, more charming bond, which I think we may need after Craig’s stint. I really hope this next film is better than Quantum of Solace. At least it can’t have a worse title.

      i think Tom Hardy can play it both. charming and hard hitting. we’ll probably even get Nolan as a director if we’re lucky.

      anyways, i hope this series of acclaimed directors continues. Fincher and Nolan are tailor made for a Bond flick. come on Broccoli. MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    when do we get a confirmation that Roger Deakins will photograph this?

    Steve, you talked to Roger about it in your interview.. is there any information if he’s confirmed now?

      With filming not going until later this year, they might not want to say anything until it’s 100%.

    Bruno Ganz was considered for the villain in Quantum, and I hope they’d consider again. Not every villain needs to be a shadowy version of Bond.

    Very. Psyched. MGM has *got* to crank out the Bond films with DC *while he’s young enough* to do the exciting fight sequences that Bond requires.

    Agh – cannot stand the thought of a return to Roger Moore-esque double-entendre spouting no-action Bond…

    Its such as you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the e book in it or something. I believe that you just can do with a few p.c. to power the message house a bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.
