Problem 1330. James Bond film count

Twenty-three James Bond films have been produced, in the years

   1962, 1963, 1964, 1965, 1967, 1969, 1971, 1973, ...
   1974, 1977, 1979, 1981, 1983, 1985, 1987, 1989, ...
   1995, 1997, 1999, 2002, 2006, 2008, 2012

The total number of films N produced as a function of year Y can be approximated fairly well by a curve of the form

   N = A*(Y-1961)^p   or   log(N) = log(A) + p*log(Y-1961)

Use this to predict the total number of Bond films that will have been produced as of any given year in the future.
