James Bond 007It’s been about three years since the last James Bond movie, “Quantum of Solace,” was released in theaters. After some delays, which were the result of speculation that Daniel Craig might be walking away from the role of 007 and problems at MGM, it looks like the next Bond movie will be coming out in November 2012. And it looks like it will be titled “Skyfall.”

According to The Guardian’s film blog, a company working on behalf of Sony Pictures (the studio that will be co-financing and distributing the newest Bond flick) has been grabbing a series of domain names containing the term “skyfall,” including JamesBond-Skyfall.com, Skyfall-Film.net, Skyfall-TheFilm.com and others. Unfortunately, Skyfall.com is already registered to a company called Skyfall Creative.

This happens frequently with new movie titles, as FairWinds pointed out in a study that examined domain naming trends in the movie industry over the past decade. Of course, studios always have the option of trying to purchase the domain names, but many opt to simply register a variant of the Title.com instead.

The more pressing question is, who’s going to be the new Bond Girl?
