Sony and MGM have announced the long awaited 23rd James Bond Movie is getting a brand new release date for UK & Irish fans and its good news, as we will get to see 007 return to the big screen. The movie will now be released in UK& Ireland 2 weeks before USA and the rest of the world on October 26th 2012 whilst everyone else will have to wait until November 9th, 2012. Its a great little piece of news and with the superspy been a British institution its only fitting that the country he was created in in see it first just as I would expect film institutions of other countries getting the first look.
Via our friends at Way To Blue, Sony/MGM have sent us an official press release which you can read below, but what we’re all interesting in seeing or reading about is the press conference launch so we can lay to rest who will be appearing in the movie and what part they will play, will it be Ralph Fiennes? Javier Bardem? or both?? Hopefully soon we’ll find out.
