US made to wait for Quantum of Solace

Next Bond outing pushed back a week

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

The next outing for James Bond will not hit US cinema screens until 14 November - a week later than planned and well after the UK premiere in London on 29 October, the BBC reports.

Sony's decision to shift the stateside release of Quantum of Solace is apparently based on Warner Bros' announcement last week that Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince wouldn't see the light of day until July 2009, as opposed to the intended 21 November.

Sony worldwide marketing chairman Jeff Blake explained: "Harry Potter moving out gave us an opportunity to get a little closer to the holidays. Bond has a really good history of not only playing through Thanksgiving but going deep into the Christmas holidays."

The knock-back means Blighty-based Bond aficionados will have a good couple of weeks to assess Daniel Craig's second outing as 007 before those across the Pond can give their verdict. UK fans will also have plenty of time to praise/decry Alicia Keys and Jack White's Another Way to Die theme for the movie prior to the results of the American jury. ®
