Since MGM is part of Columbia Pictures, and is owned by Sony, the company managed to promote some of its products in the film. The notebook that Daniel Craig uses is a VAIO FG series notebook, Vesper's hand phone is a Sony Ericsson M600i model, Bond uses the K800i model. Jeffrey Wright and Eva Green also used a Cybershot T-50 digital camera (contains a touch screen manipulation feature). Also, this is the first movie to feature the new Sony high definition format: you can clearly see a Blu-ray recorder in the surveillance video room that Bond infiltrates. See more »

[Reading about their alias covers]
We've been involved for quite a long while. Hence, the shared suite.
But, my family is strict Roman Catholic. So, for appearances sake, it'll be a two bedroom suite.
I do *hate* it when religion comes between us.
Religion - and a securely locked door. Am I going to have a problem with you, Bond?
No, don't worry, you're not my type.

This is among the best bond movies! You have to see it.
After all the controversy and comments on Daniel Craig's potential as an actor and doubts over him playing Bond...i'd say forget it and be enthralled by the new BOND! He's here to stay.
He has that natural feeling about him when you see him on the screen as Bond, that attitude, style, confidence matched only by Sean COnnery. The movie as a whole is extremely entertaining and exciting.The acting is awesome Eva Green actually does a great job and has really improved her acting from the last time i saw her (in kingdom of heaven), but then this is a totally different movie.
There's a lot of action mixed with great story which i am sure will please the true Bond fan.
Please go and watch this because you will regret if you don't, forget the past this is the New Bond.
