James Robert Ford has just completed a project which maps out the plotlines of all 20 previous 007 movies, and has found that every one contains certain plot elements that occur roughly around the same time in each film.
Based on his findings, hes predicting that the upcoming Casino Royale will include its first casino scene about 34 minutes into the picture and Bonds first kiss or sex with his main Bond girl just after the one-hour mark.
In addition, Ford is confident Bond will chat with gadget whiz Q about 33 minutes into the movie and the first sighting of Miss Moneypenny will take place 17 minutes into the film.
Ford, whose art projects all call upon his love of pop culture, says the point of this piece is to take these exciting films and break them down into boring mathematical charts.
Although hes burned out on Bond after completing his research, hes still looking forward to bringing his graphs and charts to the theater and seeing how close Casino Royale matches.
