Ahhh, Mr Bond, we've been expecting you. Then we were worried about your financial difficulties. Then we were pleased for you that these finance problems had been resolved and your license to film had been reinstated.
But then, Mr Bond, we were worried once again. This time about your mental health when the rumours began circulating that your next film would be called Red Sky At Night.
Mr Bond, these two casting rumours earned you such goodwill that the news that you had completely sold out every sellable item in the upcoming film did not even faze us in the slightest.
And now this latest news of your confirmed cinema release date is very much appreciated.
Mr Bond we will be expecting your New Zealand release date to coincide with the confirmed UK release date of October 26 next year.
A warning Mr Bond. Don't try and fob us off with your confirmed US release date either. Releasing the film there on November 9, two weeks after your UK release date, may fly with those Yankees but here in New Zealand we're a part of the Commonwealth.
You'd do well to remember that Mr Bond...
