Managed to convince the girlfriend to see it at the theater next week (on bean bags) and I couldn’t be more excited!

With Daniel Craig signing up for yet another James Bond movie, and the Sony distribution deal having expired after Spectre, it seems that Amazon and Apple are also in the mix.

As a fan of the company, and someone who’s paid attention to their recent content play, I’d be very excited by this prospect. Oh, and another thing:

If Apple does win the bidding for these rights, I’m pretty sure we’ve seen the last of Bond using some shitty Sony phone.
