Well, this could also mean seeing Murphy's Irish _______, Amstel, Zyweic, Birra Moretti...

They can't be that stupid. There has already been enough controversy around Craig being chosen for the 00 role. Please tell me they didn't sell out the character in this way? It's bad enough the "looter" picture from New Orleans features a guy stealing a case of this swill, but who's going to take James Bond with a shred of sincereity if he says "I'll take a Heiney"?

The new Bond for the new generation, think I might give it a miss.

Bond does not drink Dannish piss beer!
2006-09-25 08:00:59 AM  
It's the question mark again!

Bond to Ditch Maritinis?
Bond to be closet homosexual transvestite?
Bond to be in blackface?

I think bananaFiend has it right.

This guy doesn't like guns,
can't drive standard transimission
doesn't drink Martinis?

Roger Moore should come back and kick this pretty blond boys a$$.

But he does have Chris Cornell doing his theme, which is a vast improvement on any of Madonna, Sheryl Crow or Duran Duran...

that is all.

it's Heineken

They had to do something, since they can't possibly make it as good as the original Casino Royale.

Great idea, why not give him a walkie-talkie instead of a gun and send him in to casinos to play the slots in a tracksuit.

/bullshiat. Bond drinks martinis and ocasionaly other cocktails includong the "vespa" a drink of his own creation. Also in the books he was known once to drink miller highlife and lowebrau. (does not pop)

link goes to list of Bond drinks

it's Overrated Skunk Beer
2006-09-25 09:14:18 AM  
Wow, and I thought there was an outside chance that I would be the first to mention that Henieken = piss
2006-09-25 09:14:43 AM  
How is it that a British person would drink that stuff? Some kind of war wound and brain damage backstory, perhaps?
2006-09-25 09:32:54 AM  
And he plays Texas Hold 'em instead of Baccarat. WTF. I'll admit the trailer looks okay but they shouldn't have fired Brosnan.

Not a single reference to Blue Velvet yet? For shame, fark. For Shame!
2006-09-25 12:08:12 PM  
oh no here come the beer nazis
2006-09-25 12:51:05 PM  
Heinken the only beer that tastes like ass
2006-09-25 01:04:33 PM  
It tastes like skunk because it's made of the same stuff that skunks spray.

Well, sort of. The green bottle lets in UV light that brown bottles do a much better job of keeping out. Once that UV light hits the hops, it breaks down into nearly the same stuff as skunk juice.

No way they can switch his choice of alcohol. Hell, everyone knows the phrase...

Vodka Martini, shaken not.....
2006-09-25 02:39:51 PM  
to every man his own, but J.C. couldn't they have picked something that tastes at all good? I mean let's go for Grolsh while we're at it.
2006-09-25 03:23:25 PM  
And people are surprised why?

It's not about the character, it's about Product Placement
2006-09-25 03:43:39 PM  
That should have an "Asinine" tag. Bond died with Brosnan's contract. Although personally I believe it died after Roger Moore (too many gadgets)

No smoking to satisfy the cig nazis

No Baccarat to satisfy the 'what's the pop-culture doing these days?' fiends

Now no Martinis since they can grab some more money from a Heineken???

wtf? I guess nothing is sacred anymore. Alas, poor Bond. I knew him well.
2006-09-25 04:42:46 PM  
now that they've killed Bond off with all these stupid changes let's get Alex Ryder out of puberty and make Stormbreaker into a movie. Ian Fleming must be turning in his grave.
2006-09-25 07:15:06 PM  
I was willing to forgive the replacement of chemin de fer for Texas Hold 'em only because the general public doesn't know how to play chemin de fer. The only reason I know how to play is because I'm a huge Bond nerd.

That being said, I'm expecting two things out of this movie.

1)He orders his "Vesper"
2)Last line in movie = last line in book.

Grote-Man: 2)Last line in movie = last line in book.
