It appears the name controversy over the next James Bond film slated to release in November 2012 by MGM and Sony Pictures is now settled.
The film will be called Skyfall, according to several domain name registrations privately purchased through the brand protection company MarkMonitor this week. MarkMonitor is the same company used by Sony Pictures for thousands of its own domain names, including SonyPictures.com (see Whois).
The domains include web addresses such as JamesBond-Skyfall.com and Skyfallthefilm.com.
Here’s a complete list of registrations made on October 3 through the registrar MarkMonitor.
Need further proof these names belong to Sony Pictures?
The company registered other Skyfall movie names back in mid August like Sky-FallMovie.com, that just transferred from the sonypictures.com domain servers to Mark Monitor’s name servers.
Those earlier registrations include: skyfall-movie.com, sky-fallmovie.com, skyfall-movie.net, and skyfallmovie.com.
[Updated, Nov. 3: Sony officially confirmed the title as Skyfall.]
