    There is no reason to worry about the release date anymore. Even if Craig quit tomorrow, they would still be able to make the release date now. What people should be worried about is the quality of the film.

    Worry is not good for the heart, seriously. If the film won´t turn out good People shouldn´t bother with it. Don´t let film companies decide over your happiness :-).

    While I can share some of @PanchitoPistoles pessimism for B25, I won't stick my neck out and declare it a guaranteed success or a total misfire until I've seen further evidence, such as a detailed synopsis of the plot or at least a 2-minute trailer giving me some idea of how it's possibly going to pan-out. Sure, the portents are not looking good right now. What with mishaps, rewrites, and actors not being available due to their conflicting work schedules, it looks like Fukunaga really has got his hands full on this project. One thing's for sure, the Bond news landscape is totally barren at the moment. Apart from the occasional posted Instagram from a bush-league extra, it's looking totally un-newsworthy and void of anything to discuss. Maybe I'll come back at the end of August when there's possibly more news to be had, but for now, I'm going to confine myself to the threads dealing only with Bond's illustrious past.

    Given Annapurna's marketing troubles recently with the likes of Booksmart, If Beale Street Could Talk and The Sisters Brothers, can only be a good thing...with Bond I'd imagine Universal will have massive input in the campaign, and of course EON runs the show

    Hey, this may be a joke , but they did have to do this for Gal Gadot’s stomach for re-shoots. She was noticeably pregnant at the time.so she sported a green abdomen. Later CG artist added the non-pregnant mid-section.

    Really? Brilliant, wow. That's what I call good cgi. And it should be used mainly for retouches like that, background small works and stuff like that. Wow, Gadot's stomach, who would've thought? And what a story to tell her kid. "Hey, you were there in the film, but they CGI'd you out" ;)

    That abdomen looks like it was CGI rendered, what with all that's going on down there. ;-)

    When it comes to Seagal, CGI would be put to better use by making his running less girly. ;)

    Really weird piece of news in Spanish newspaper: https://www.lavanguardia.com/economia/20190616/462896686315/submarino-sant-cugat-inmersion-patrick-lahey-triton-submarines.html?utm_campaign=botones_sociales_app&utm_source=whatsapp&utm_medium=social

    It is about a Canadian making turistic submarines, but: "también de Sant Cugat podrán salir las primeras unidades de Neptune, un submarino de lujo, creado en colaboración con Aston Martin y que fuentes bien informadas aseguran que hará su aparición en la próxima película de James Bond."

    "also from Sant Cugat will be able to leave the first units of Neptune, a luxury submarine, created in collaboration with Aston Martin and which informed sources assure that it will make its appearance in the next James Bond movie. "

    Re the Sun article - could Craig's injury limit his action potential in the rest of the film? What I mean is, if I were in the producers' shoes I'd be reluctant to risk Craig doing too much action for fear of another injury. Use stuntmen, wide angle shots for some of the stuff. Close-up stuff it can be Craig but if there's even a remote risk of potential damage to his ankle - it's not worth the risk? It's one of those really unfortunate things, happening right at the start of filming. Had the injury been at the end of filming - not as problematic, perhaps.

    That could be an interesting and exotic piece of machinery, that would harken back to the Connery days of Little Nelly and the Moore type of paraphernalia. Interesting, but highly unlikely, I think.

    The thought had occurred to me, but in a good way. I like my Bond to be a mystery man, a spy, and not too much of an action hero. Leave the running for the likes of Hunt. That being said, Craig is a top action actor, so he knows his limits. I wouldn't be too worried. Have you seen those arms? He can run on those ;) if he wants to, for miles.

    That being said, I'll leave you with an exemplar work from Mr. Waldek, regarding Daniel Craig's proficiency in running ;)

    This is definitely the case. He won't be doing as much of the stunts as on previous films - and Jean Charles Rousseau (Craig's stunt double) is said to be doing more of the action. Honestly, putting Craig into the action isn't worth the risk. As long as it's convincing it shouldn't be an issue. It's a bit of a shame though as Craig looks to be in his best shape since CR.

    Craig has definitely been the best runner of the Bonds, but it isn t worth repeating for B25 if it ruins his health. Film trickery and stuntmen can do that job.

    Could they not adapt equipment like this or that used in circus arts to allow Craig to continue doing his own stunts as previously planned, but take the weight off his ankle?

    If Marvel/DC can do a whole film with CGI/green screen, could they not invent some sort of apparatus that allows actors natural freedom of movement but catches them before they hit the ground, or allows them to run slightly off the ground if they're injured, and then close the gap in post?

    I’m sure they could but at that point it sounds far more feasible to leave it to the stunt team, and instead use clever filming and editing (with a bit of CGI use) to mask it. Especially since Bond traditionally uses sets for their action scenes rather than pure green screen.

    I was thinking more so for the future. And not necessarily Bond, but films in general.

    Far more actors are wanting to do their own stunts and injuries do occur. So in my mind it makes sense to invent something that supports their body weight and protects their injury while also allowing them near natural movement.

    For example, in those clips some of the wire work allows the stunt team to run with their feet barely touching the ground. If they could adapt something to allow actors with leg injuries to run on air so to speak, thereby taking the pressure of their legs, and closing in any gaps in post production.

    To be honest, I'm suprised they haven't already done this given how much money is invested in these films. Especially with all the reboots of old action franchises starring the original leads. How many more Rambo and Die Hard films could they squeeze out if the risk of a busted hip was minimised? $$$$$

    James Bond isn t The Flash, so his running doesn t have to match.
