I wasn't having a pop at China though.....was just passing on info from the news prog about they decide on which foreign films to show.
I know, I was ALMOST having a pop a them. Not my favourites as a nation for various reasons.

They are very protective of her own movie industry.

Showing Shanghai and Macao may serve the movie but the mentioning of the Chinese torturing Silva may just do the opposite.

We'll have to wait and see.

Skyfall' voted Digital Spy readers' best movie of 2012

Skyfall has been voted the best film of 2012 in Digital Spy's end of year poll.

The latest James Bond instalment - released to coincide with the franchise's 50th anniversary - dominated the survey's movie categories, with Daniel Craig and Judi Dench also winning for 'Best Actor' and 'Best Actress' respectively.

Skyfall secured 28.6% of the votes to beat summer superhero blockbusters The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers, while The Hunger Games was placed in fourth. Seth MacFarlane's directorial debut Ted rounded out the top five.

In the 'Best Actor' section Craig's 35.5% of the vote was enough to see off competition from Christian Bale's 20.5% and Martin Freeman, star of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, on 14.6%.

'Best Actress' was a tighter affair as Judi Dench, making her final Bond appearance as M, beat Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence by just 1.7%.

Now its starts getting difficult. I doubt, it will reach the 300 mill in the US, but is still rather sure for 1 Billion.
