So Jamaica will feature early in the movie?
Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
Oh...another rogue "I'm not working for MI6" story?
So there was no title. It's not the first time a Bond film has gone into production without one.
We do have a brief synopsis, but more importantly a confirmed cast.
Very happy to have Malek confirmed, though possibly the worst kept secret concerning this Bond film.
Really happy to have Jeffrey Wright back. Great news.
Very happy Bond fan here. Good end to my day.
Daniel has never been the greatest of public speakers so no real shock. As long as he delivers in the film that's what counts!
I think Malek could make a creepy villain. Looks like it could be spot-on casting. :)
Having produced live streams for some global companies in the past - they're a particularly high-stress experience. It's like live TV with zero margin for error and a multitude of points of failure. We'd call them "Bum Squeakers" for when something went wrong. But hopefully, we'll have more of this kind of presentation throughout the production and I'm sure they'll get slicker.
But let's focus again on the positives - what an amazing cast!!!!
added nothing whatsoever. It was only to generate awareness over social media. Questions were picked that would have been asked anyway, and they were the usual dull generic questions and answers, such as "how are you feeling?". I didn't expect more than that really. But I WAS looking forward to the title. We did get a video of a hut being built though.
Either they are having trouble deciding between multiple titles, or they just haven't got one yet. If they DID have a title, can any of you suggest what the reason for not revealing it could be??
This will be ANOTHER film where Bond is not just DOING HIS JOB. He's retired at the beginning. Every one of Craig's films has him being doubted, relieved of duty, or considered 'too old'. This is for another comment I think, but why can we not just have a film of Bond being given a mission, going off to investigate, getting in over his head and relying on his wits to get out of it alive? This'll probably be another film where everything is a struggle and where Bond spends most of his time getting help from Q, Moneypenny and M over Skype.
But.. I hope not.
Exclusive interviews I guess. Sky airing some tonight, GMB I presume tomorrow morning followed by GMA across the pond.
@Zekidk when was the last time they had an actual tagline for a Bond film at all? At least we have a synopsis
I remember seeing her in War Dogs. Thought she was gorgeous. Couldn't be happier about that.
This is what disappointed me the most. Very, very happy about Felix's return - definitely the best piece of news we got since 2015 - but I wish they would tell us who will compose the score.
Tanner is to many people the real hero of Bond films :)) Gotta admit I love the guy's sense of humor :))
My thoughts exactly. At first i was dissaspointed with there being no title reveal, BUT the cast made up for it. Really hyped to get Jeffrey Wright back, Ana de Armas is so beautiful couldn't asked for much better. Malek confirmation is also nice like you said. We got some information on the film though, Bond is apparently chilling at Jamaica. I thought the PTS was going to be the matera bit? With Bond visiting a grave and then a car chase..
Does that sound ridiculous! Yeah, but it's Bond, baby!!!!
Another plot could be artificial intelligence - the rise of robots or something. Not quite Terminator type robots but some enhanced intelligence in league with the main villains. I wouldn't mind that in Bond 26 rather than Bond 26 - it's hard to imagine Daniel Craig's Bond fighting robots!
I will admit, the synopsis sounds good and the cast is pretty excellent. I am very happy with Ana de Armas as a huge fan of BR2049, and Jefferey Wright is so good he steals the show from Craig.
Still, Craig has proven to me to be completely outdated and archaic as Bond. Cary's answers were so lame. I'm skeptical about this movie. Spectre also had a great cast in theory, and that was a colossal letdown.
I've never even seen Malik talk before. I thought his little snippet suggested he'll make a decent pantomime villain if nothing more.
Still getting over how amateurish the live stream was. Frankly why not just prerecord the whole thing. The presenter was awful - could they have found anyone less knowledgeable and awkward? It felt like a bad segment from British daytime TV, which is what it was I suppose.
My guess; Pre-title scenes set just after SP, with Bond and Maddy in Italy, perhaps visiting Vesper's grave, then something kicks off, leading to a car chase with the DB5. Bond and Maddy escape.
After titles, we find Bond, 4 years later, happily retired in Jamaica with Maddy -- and then Felix (the brilliant J Wright) arrives and asks for Bond's help.
That's a good set up.
I never heard about her before, but she surely is stunning. Maybe just a bit too young for Craig?
