    From jamesbonddownunder today looks like jany tamine is out

    This could be the best news I've read all year. Hooray!

    Indeed! Boyle was a sure thing so no surprise there, but I really didn't expect Temime is out. Great news!
    I sincerely hope whoever replaces her doesn't go for the spandex cut again.

    That was Tom Ford's influence.

    Craig works with Ford on Bond's look; the costume designer just goes along with it. The suits will be as tight (or loose) as Craig wants. I have noticed since SP's release, that Craig himself is going with looser cuts, especially with his jeans. So I would think his Ford suits will do the same in B25.

    I certainly hope so. He's considerably older now too, and the body doesn't shape the same way, even with workouts. A looser cut could be more flattering at this age. Let's leave the tightness for the younger chaps.

    I'm sure it's been mentioned but I'm a bit busy with work:

    1. Is the Universal deal a one-off currently?

    2. I'm guessing late November/December 1st-ish will commence the press conference they'll hold?

    1. Yes at the moment,but I think it will go on.

    2. 3rd December at the moment.

    Is Universal just distributing bond 25 or have they signed a deal to distribute more Bond films?

    I just asked that; currently a one-off, we'll have to wait to see if they continue on with distributing the next era.

    If I were to guess, I think it's very likely. This took so long to pull together that I can't imagine they didn't discuss the future, with this being a trial run. I think a lot is going to happen after this film is out, or perhaps even before. Now that they have distribution locked for their biggest release they are free to move forward on more transformative business elements.
  • I’m going to try my absolute best to avoid as many spoilers as possible. Will watch the teaser trailer and try to leave it at that.

    It will be torture, but I know I enjoy watching films so much more when I am unspoiled.

    I'm going to try that as well , in the run up to spectre i watched every trailer BTS video and tv ad i could find and i ended up feeling like i'd already seen it by the time i walked into the cinema. Im just going to watch the trailer this time and leave it at that. But then again i have no willpower whatsoever so......

    I did the same and not only did i end up feeling like i'd already seen it, but the movie in my head was infinitly better than the end product. I would like to avoid that this time.

    I'm actually going to try and avoid the trailer. The last one didn't do much for me and actually began a deflating feeling which carried over to the final product. The SF trailer on the other hand truly pumped me up for the end product and it delivered and then some.

    So far I've been able to avoid the MI:F trailer and feel much better on account of it.

    Sometimes these things really do give too much away these days.

    With Skyfall I also tried my best to avoid anything, but ended up going to the set and directing the film. By the time I watched it at the cinema, I also felt I'd already seen it.

    Unfortunately yes. Also i hate the practice of cutting scenes into the trailer that are not even in the final movie.

    That'll do something about those complaints that the gunbarrel has been getting shorter and shorter.

    If he manages to do this properly, he's already better than Mendes in my opinion…

    I understand that things can get cut in the editing process, but I am not a fan of adding scenes to a trailer that specifically will not be in the movie and they know it.

    ... and often real good ycdnes, too.

    Great Temime is out, was waiting for that. Now lets get Lindy back.

    Does anyone know if screenwriter John Hodge is a Bond fan? I know his Trainspotting adaptation mentions Bond films and characters in several places. A quick look on the internet didn't turn up any previous Hodge comments about Bond or Fleming, but I'm sure we'll get some now. I always look to the screenwriter, but it sounds like it's mainly Boyle's idea for the film, and the two men are longtime partners of course. It sounds promising.

    Okay, here's a quote from Boyle I just found, from March:

    "We've got an idea. John Hodge, the screenwriter, and I have got this idea, and John is writing it at the moment." Again, promising, that Hodge may've shared in the plot.

    Judging by the dialogue in Trainspotting, I would guess he is.

    I don't think Temime was that bad. I loved the Bondgirls dresses. Especially Severine's. I wasn't fond of Craig's tight suits though.

    Indeed. Let's hope he shows the common sense not to mess with the iconic image and music. It will be a first for the Craig era.

    If he can accomplish this (which the majority of Bonds pre-Craig did without a hitch), then I promise I won't whine (too much) if he actually does want Bond to mentor some young agent in the field.

    Just heard this confirmation of Danny Boyle directing on the radio. If these script rumors are true, it’s hard to muster any excitement for the film, what with a supposed protege and a villain having yet another personal connection to Bond.

    I wouldn’t worry at all about those rumors considering the same source claimed Warner Bros. would be the international distributor.

    Its a transition film, and we really should have seen this coming. EON are so goddamned sneaky, they're at it again!

    DAF cranks up the camp factor, as preparation for a more comedic take after Connery.

    AVTAK notches up the violence and edge in advance of Timmy's gruesome twosome.

    DAD plants the seed of a broken Bond before Craig takes the idea and runs with it.

    As we know, the pendulum swings from one side to the other. So who does one inject the kinetic, snappy Bond whilst maintaining the "have something to say" ethos of the Craig era. Danny Boyle is the perfect man for the job, on paper at least.

    Such an obvious fit we really should have seen it coming.


    I'm really looking forward to what comes next after Craig, and the next dawn of Bond when things will be truly fresh, breaking the seal on a new era etc... But they are being very art about how they freshen things up here, to get the best out of what's left of Craig's time in the role.

    Though I’m still pretty sure this is Craig’s last, I did find it interesting that the statements only said it would be Craig’s 5th, and made no mention of it being his last. Just leaving the door open in case?
