Shatterhand (2012) was a James Bond tribute film which debuted in the same year as Skyfall (2012). Other official Bond movies that share titles with previous Bond-related movies include GoldenEye (1995), which shares its title with a TV movie about Ian Fleming, Goldeneye (1989) (aka "The Man with the Golden Pen"); and Casino Royale (2006), of which there had been two earlier versions, Casino Royale (1967) and Climax!: Casino Royale (1954). Since, Bond producer Barbara Broccoli has confirmed 'Shatterhand' will not be the title of this movie. In the Fleming novels "Shatterhand" is an alias used by Ernst Stavro Blofeld. See more »
