James Bond is returning to Chinese theatres once again.
China Daily reports that Quantum of Solace is scheduled to premiere in the country on Wednesday, 5 November 2008.
7 November was the date originally pegged for release, but 007 will now arrive two days earlier to avoid competition during the ‘New Year Session’, when several new films make their theatrical debuts.
As many Bond fans will recall, Daniel Craig’s first film in the series, Casino Royale, became the very first Bond film ever to play on Chinese theatres after being approved by the country’s censors with no cuts made. It became a box office success following on from a strong $1.5 million opening day on 30 January 2007.
Industry insiders are expecting similar strong business for Quantum of Solace.
