You don’t need to be Nate Silver to predict what’s going to be in Skyfall, the latest Bond film, which is out this weekend: a Bond, a Bond girl, and a Bond villain. Below, Slate’s constructed a diabolical machine that will allow you to generate your own Bond movie, with its characters and titles generated from previous Bond films. Click the poster or the spin button for a new film, and share your favorite posters with your friends. We warn you: Due to (and thanks to) keywords appearing in certain Bond titles, some of these are going to be NSFW.
