    Yes, when Mr. White is kneecapped in the closing moments of CASINO ROYALE then is taken for a ride in the boot of the Aston Martin with the opening of QUANTUM OF SOLACE.

    The action takes place in 08. Like I said, it takes place in the year it's made.

    OHMSS takes place over two years. There is a new years celebration.

    Wait, wait, wait, Bond had White in his Aston Martin's boot (trunk) for two years??

    And was released, appropriately, a week before Christmas.

    ... and if White was in Bond's trunk for two years, that bullet wound would have surely infected, giving him gangrene, no??

    But SP didn't take place in 2015 @QuantumOrganization; it happened soon after M's death. She sent Bond the video telling him about Sciarra-- and she wasn't looking three years into the future when she made that video.

    SP is months after the events of SF, which is around 2012-13, @QuantumOrganization.

    And as an aside: when is this announcement to be made? You stated late August/early September...

    Not how it works in Bond. It takes place in the year it's made.
    They do, and there's no sense in overanalyzing it. It's not meant to be thought over.

    Wow that's interesting; never knew about that plot hole in QoS timeline wise.

    Exactly.

    There is no hole, because there is no rigid timeline. Every Bond film takes place in the moment.

    Just having a little fun @jake24 , since I was one of the people, in the DC timeline to take it a little more seriously (pre-Craig, i didn't think of proper continuity and timelines). I assumed CR/QoS was 06-07, SF (when he's a more seasoned agent), takes place in '12 (about six years after QoS), and SP as being 2012-13.

    Fair enough, @peter, but again, the more you analyze it, the more you'll drive yourself to insanity.

    For me personally. QOS is in 2006. Party slip be damned.

    The year makes no difference. It could say 2027. The story is the important element, the date is an arbitrary element.

    Agreed. Just like SP is set in 2012-2013 as far as I'm concerned (regardless of the date on Swann's tablet).

    There's no way it took the forensics three years to release Bond's personal effects from Skyfall.

    The story they are telling takes place in the year they're telling it. If you watch SF it's 2012. If you watch SP it's 2015 and SF is several months before. I really don't understand how difficult this is to grasp. THERE'S NO DATE SPECIFIC TIMELINE. GET OVER IT.

    Yes, it goes back to the individual and how they resolve things like the original sloppy timeline for films 1-20, @Murdock. For me the films present the same Bond across five actors but that also means 40 years.
    In this case, to me, CASINO ROYALE takes place in 2006 because it says so. QUANTUM OF SOLACE starts moments later, so it's not 2008. And where the party invite says 2008, that's foreshadowing: a typo, an introduced flaw indicating the pending downfall of Quantum.
    Still, the stuff of but-this-one-goes-up-to-eleven conversations.

    Yeah, because you've taken the time to assign a date to it.

    There's a separate thread devoted this, tbh, moot discussion. Let's move it there.

    Im confused. You implied you don't care, but you've obviously considered it.

    Can't be bothered by the whole Bond timeline, to be honest. Analyzing the timeline of the films ruins the viewing experience, as there will be some inconsistencies. I just think of each film to be somewhat recent to the production/release year, and leave it at that.

    I like piecing it all together like a large puzzle. It's very fun.

    While I love a lot of their films, some days I do wish to go back to a time before Marvel made everyone obsessed with timelines and shared universes. Bond is timeless, just how I like it. It's how it survives

    In all seriousness, I followed the Craig era kinda like the ROCKY films, for good or bad: Rocky II happened right after Rocky's first fight with Creed (so it's still starts in '76, not '79...), ROCKY IV starts in a timeline in '83, right after the events of ROCKY III... ROCKY V starts right after ROCKY IV...

    (anyone love these cheese-fest, man-cave movies as much as me???) Therefore Rocky ages inside of the stories, not in real-time as Sly was.

    If we follow the time-line of DC BOND, and not real time, we also get a guy in his mid-40s (like his passport states in the last Omega presentation) and not a guy closing in on his fifties. As a man and athlete, DC can be younger. And I was following this timeline to make sense of the stories.

    Does that make sense?

    How about a Minecraft James Bond movie?

    Apparently cursing is now allowed on the forum.

  • QUANTUM OF SOLACE didn't take place in 2008. Just sayin'.

    How do you explain the invitation to Dominic Greene's event that has a 2008 date?
