James Bond descends into mystery as he tries to stop a mysterious organization from eliminating a country's most valuable resource.
Reportedly, this is expected to be the final James Bond movie released under the Sony banner. This is allegedly due to a legal agreement which was made when Sony formed a consortium to buy MGM in 2004. This film and its precursor Casino Royale (2006) have both been MGM and Columbia Pictures co-productions, and both studio logos are seen at the start of each film. For Skyfall (2012), MGM is expected to return to being the Bond series' sole exclusive studio. However, it has been touted that Sony may be staying on.

It is clear that the outset of Bolivia was filmed in several different countries. Whereas in La Paz people speak with what appears to be a Mexican accent, people in the desert such as the desert hotel waitress and the plane owner speak with a Chilean accent. The Bolivian scenes were filmed in the Atacama Desert in Chile, Colon in Panama and the Baja California Peninsula in Mexico.
James Bond will return
Following an advisory screening of a rough cut the film was pre-cut on BBFC advice before official submission to the Board for a formal cinema classification, with edits made in two scenes in the finale. At this point it was officially passed "uncut" as a 12A. More detailed notes can be found on the BBFC's website. Worldwide versions are this same pre-cut version.
