The movie "Black Hawk Down" featured a nerdy, coffee-obsessed clerk named Specialist Grimes.

The actual battle featured a nerdy, coffee-obsessed clerk named Spc. Stebbins (who is currently having a seat over in Leavenworth for the rest of his life).

It is a complete and total coincidence that the U.S. government only agreed to cooperate after Stebbins was removed from the script.

Skyfall was released internationally in 2012 and has become the biggest grossing film of all time, taking more than $1bn (£630m) at the box office.

Isn't it going need about another $1.8bn to beat Avatar?

1. Bond did not kill any security guards in Shanghai in  Skyfall. The guy he's following does
2. It didn't feel like "much" of the film was set in China. I mean, they filmed all the China scenes in the UK except for establishing shots in Shanghai and Macau.
3. Are the Chinese shocked that the gambling capital of the world has prostitutes?
