Pretty sure that the Bontonis are a Photoshop job. I've seen them with three straps before (and that's enough - they look pretty silly with three straps), but never with five straps:

I missed the audition but I'm glad I did. In fact I will not watch the movie. Some media discovered that the government paid Sony $14,000,000 so they change some stuff of the story.

The original story was going to show the actual problems we have down here but the government asked them to change that and show the beautiful places of Mexico and show a different story than the original and they asked for a mexican actress to show in the movie that is associated with the government.

So, I would not see this movie on the theaters. I do not wish them good luck and I guess piracy would give them a nice hit.

That's actually not accurate. Your government gave them a tax break, which is not uncommon for attracting filming. And there was nothing about not showing Mexico's problems, but rather they didn't want to see a Mexican official assassinated as the original script had, which I don't think is terribly hard to understand. They did ask for a Mexican actress though for whatever reason, and modified the helicopter crash. The scene location is actually exactly the same.

All that said, why would you be upset with the movie? It's your government that is giving the tax break, not EON. They are not a social mouthpiece, just film makers trying to tell an adventure story. I'm sure gonna see it on opening night, it's James Frickin Bond.

Hmmm... maybe there are some different stories out there. I will research a bit more to define if I'm going to see it or not. :thinking:

^ I watched the trailer with the sound off and have no idea what the plot is about (apart from, of course, SPECTRE wants to control the world) but it looks as though it will be enjoyably escapist.

I could give a books worth of information, but you have pretty much summed up the salient points for fun viewing.

Is this going to suck ass like all of the recent ones except for Casino Royale, but people will love it anyway?
It may.

In all seriousness, thought, it can't possibly be worse than that utter pile of steaming cr@p with Brosnan as Bond where they had a villain with a face studded full of diamonds and a "car duel" in an Icelandic glacier or some such awful rubbish.

OJFC. The old Bond films were like the old Batman TV show. If you like that kind of shit, watch the next Austin Powers movie. Quantum of Solace is the weakest of the Daniel Craig Bond movies and it's still better than any of the drivel that Roger Moore or Pierce Brosnan was in.
