Create alternative titles for the Bond movies

Most Bond movie titles are great, but I think it would've been fun to come up with alternative titles for all of them.

I'll start with a few suggestions:

DAD: Icaros

QoS: Death leaves an echo

DN: Death in paradise (😁)

FRWL; SMERSH

    I'm not sur Detente is a good title for an action movie. It's bit like calling it "Calm" or "Peace" isn't it?

    The other two are great!

    LTK: Blood Runs Cold

    "Icarus" is a very apt choice of title for DAD. The Greek story of Icarus is about a son who doesn't listen to his father's warnings (General Moon tries to warn his son from his plans and is ignored) and flies too close to the sun. The satellite Icarus is explicitly referred to as a second sun. "Sun" is even part of the son's name.

    That's a fair amount of subtext for a film that's usually dismissed.

    I guess you could also call it 'COLONEL'S SON' 🙂


    Or maybe FORTUNE FAVOURS THE GRAVES 😁

    Would these two work as alterantives to FYEO:

    Eye for an eye

    Risico

    Although now I think of it; his dad was a General. Well that spoils it 🤣


    How about Skyfall becoming NEVER GO BACK

    For YOLT we could use the title of a later Connery movie:

    Rising Sun


    Or a version of it:

    Blood Red Sun

    OP:

    Dangerous Game (there is big game hunting in the movie, Bond is a dangerous prey and the cold war is a dangerous game)

    I'm sitting at my desk, and just above my computer screen are hanging posters for YOLT and OHMSS. As I looked at them, with their painted artwork and dramatic scenes I suddenly reimagined them is early 1950s disaster movies with titles like

    Volcano!

    and

    Avalanche!

  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 33,211Chief of Staff

    😁 So the next two would be

    "Satellite!"

    and

    "Alligator!"

    My alternative title for DAF (with some apologies to Raymond Benson):

    The Facets of Death

    AVTAK could simply be called: “James!”

    😂


    Is changing TND back to "Tomorrow never lies" cheating? 🤔
