James Bond is kind of like Doctor Who, but with more spy stuff and less “EXTERMINATE.” Every now and then he changes form while retaining his identity. He’s been around since before my parents were born (they’re young). He (Bond, not the Doctor) is about to embark on his twenty-third (canon) adventure, and it very well may be titled Skyfall (and come to think of it, it sounds like it could be the title of a Doctor Who episode).
Normally, I’d chalk this up to rumors, but considering all the domain names that have recently been registered by MarkMonitor, a brand protection company working for Sony, it’s looking pretty likely. Among the slew are such gems as jamesbond-skyfall.com, jamesbondskyfall.com, skyfall-thefilm.com, and skyfall-themovie.com. You can see the full list below.
If I had to speculate what Skyfall is about, I’d guess that an evil mastermind is plotting to destroy something or take something over utilizing some sort of device that may well involve the phrase “Skyfall.” Her Majesty’s roughest, toughest agent will be enlisted to stop the madman and will do so by driving and then blowing up whatever car they’re pushing in 2012, having sex with women that may or may not have names that are also innuendos, having sex with other women with regular names, requesting his martini be shaken and not stirred, introducing himself as, “Bond, James Bond,” and being tied up and tortured and/or talked to at length by the bad guy before escaping and stopping said bad guy. Also there may be parkour.
You heard it here first. For the twenty-third time.[Via WhatCulture!]
