Looks like M (Judi Dench) plays a larger role. And with Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, and Javier Bardem as co-stars, not to mention an Oscar-winning director, Sam Mendes, at the helm for the very first time in 50 years, there’s every reason to believe Skyfall will, miraculously, keep the Bond franchise alive and well until they take my advice and cast Idris Elba as Bond—and never make mention of race.
Or how about Sherlock Holmes teaming up with Bond to find and disarm an international terrorist cell operated by Blofeld? (Holmes is no longer the property of the late 19th century/early 20th century, don’t you know.)
Trivia question: How many Oscar nominations does Albert Finney have to his credit? (Hint: five.) How many Oscars has he won? (Hint: 0.)
Which can only mean it’s time for The Seven Percent Solution! Sit back and enjoy!
