For those of you who were on 24/7 Obama watch last week, you may not have noticed that the new James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, opened in China last Wednesday, more than one week before its debut in Obamerica — and nearly three months before it opens in Japan. Suckers! (See all release dates here.) Not that we didn’t trust earlier reports that Bond would arrive on the Mainland uncut and uncensored, but having been burned by bad government edits in the past (bureaucrats are sloppy with scissors), we wanted to wait and make sure. We have learned from friends that Quantum indeed seems untouched in Shanghai, save for some subtitled Italian that doesn’t appear in English. We’ll be heading to the theater soon. Here are showtimes (in Chinese).
