James Bond Gets On Twitter, His New Movie Is Now Called SKYFALL, Might Be Getting OKCupid Profile Too.

Hey guys, Javi here. So today seems to be the day for awesome James Bond news. Reading anyone of the random movie sites, you hear news of the fact that there is now a James Bond Twitter account,( that was live-tweeting a lot of confirmations during a press conference of many rumors we had heard over the past year. Check the news all credited to said Twitter account after the jump
Something for the lady demographic.

So to start off the round of news, the 23rd James Bond movie will officially be called SKYFALL. This was a rumor from a while back, but it's nice to hear that it's been confirmed. I like the title, it's not as ridiculous as QUANTUM OF SOLACE.
Plus the title is totally a Transformers reference.

Next is the plot. According to the Twitter account, the plot will NOT be tied to CASINO ROYALE or QUANTUM OF SOLACE says director Sam Mendes. The official synopsis is "Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat , no matter how personal the cost."

Finally, the main cast has been confirmed as the following: Daniel Craig as James Bond, Javier Bardem as the unnamed villain of SKYFALL, Dame Judi Dench will be M again and apparently will take a bigger role in this installment. Bérénice Marlohe will be playing a character named Severin, and Naomie Harris will be a fellow agent named Eve. Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes and Albert Finney will all star as well as yet-to-be revealed characters.

All of these news have me way more interested in a Bond movie than I have ever been. I've never been that great into the movie franchise apart from a Nintendo 64 capacity, and I enjoyed the previous Daniel Craig outings, but they never got me super excited like say, the Bourne movies. Seeing the cast, and hearing the brief synopsis has indeed piqued my interest, and not only because my 2nd favorite Javier is going to be a villain. But I ask of you, bigger Bond fans, what do you all think of the news? Will Sam Mendes be able to deliver a movie that makes you all forget about QUANTUM OF SOLACE, or will it be another shameful, Pierce Brosnan-esque entry into the franchise?
