Bond fans are angry at the press certain negative sites have garnered, and seek to redress the balance. After reactionary sites were launched following the announcement of Daniel Craig as the sixth official incarnation of James Bond, the general consensus has been that fans are appalled by EON Productions/Sony Pictures’ choice. However, CommanderBond.net has founded DanielCraigIsBond.com in an effort to allow true fans of Her Majesty’s Secret Servant to express their delight at the casting of Craig.
“We were aware through comments made by Daniel Craig and the worldwide press recently that the opinion was the fans were upset by his casting”, said CommanderBond.net/DanielCraigIsBond.com founder David Winter “however the majority of our community at CBn are excited by the prospect of a reinvented 007. We just wanted to give them a voice.”
DanielCraigIsBond.com was set up in reaction to the ten month battery Casino Royale has received in the press since “CraigNotBond.com” was launched by those disgruntled by the dismissal of Pierce Brosnan as Bond, ordering fans to boycott the film, “but CommanderBond.net has always had a ‘let’s wait and see’ policy”, Winter professes, “and we are now getting increasingly thrilled by what we are seeing”.
DanielCraigIsBond.com was launched on Friday 11th August and has already received a lot of attention from fans wishing to express their excitement for Casino Royale, the 21st James Bond film by producers Eon Productions. The web site has had messages of support for Daniel Craig from people all around the world; Argentina, Asia, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Cayman Islands, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Malaysia, Norway, Portugal, Switzerland, Trinidad, the UK and the US.
