007 fans in China are bragging about seeing the latest Bond movie, Quantum of Solace before those in the United States.
It was released two days ago on November 5 and a friend of mine even went to the midnight showing, securing some of the last few seats in the theatre.
And yes, as a Daniel Craig fan he loved every minute of the 106-minute flick which made it through the Chinese censors without any cuts.
Why was it released earlier in China? Probably a preemptive move to prevent fake DVD copies of it from going around if the film was released later.
Most people think, why pay 50 to 60RMB for a ticket, when they can get a copy for 10RMB?
We'll have to see if that works or not.
But Bond is definitely hot property.
