    Intimacy coordinators are a relatively new thing. They were used during production of the second season of The Deuce, which takes place in the porn industry during the late seventies and was released a year ago. Basically, they're like stunt coordinators but for sex or nude scenes. They're also not there to tone down the sex or the nudity, but to make sure that the cast is comfortable while shooting this. They act like a middle person between an actor and the director, while when conversation takes place between an actor and the director or the producer, it's more often biased. Having somebody independent makes it easier to have a real talk.
    Actually, one the latest scandals in the industry was about the TV show SMILF, which was written and produced by a woman, whom an actress accused of bullying, as she made several times last minute changes to her sex scenes, turning them into something more humiliating.

    It's unlikely that an intimacy coach will affect anything on something PG-13 like Bond, it's more about adhering to new standards.

    And we know that Bond will get laid with somebody else than Madeleine.

    I think like someone on this thread before? If you get a lot of them you could piece the whole sequence of the movie together?
    Yeah, I like seeing the clappers, but prefer not to analyze what scene goes where.

    This is a good laugh an intimacy coordinator? I guess there isn't anything wrong with being extra careful :)) https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-7047405/amp/Daniel-Craig-Ana-Armas-provided-intimacy-coordinator-James-Bond-25.html

    I mean the ‘me too’ angle is pathetic.....it’s called acting. But on a plus point it probably means Madeline Swann will be killed off to allow 007 to ‘do’ other things!

    Intimacy coordinators/choreographers are quite common these days. They help try and make these types of scenes convincing.

    Being convincing is what the actors are paid extremely high wages to do IMO.

    Steady, mate - this is a 9-figure operation. The 'coordinators' are there to protect everyone from harm, or liability, and make sure nothing dodgy is afoot. It could stop some actual abuse or even just the appearance of it, the latter of which alone could cost the series a lot of money (or worse, reputation).

    Smart move, all considered; just ask Weinstein (or anyone who had the misfortune of auditioning for him).

    Is anyone else not getting notifications for new posts in this thread? It always looks like there’s no new posts from the main page but when I click on it there’s multiple new posts from today. The forum acts like I’ve already read them all.

    Yep same thing here. Not sure what’s going on. It seems to be only for this particular thread.

    Regarding Bond's relationship with Madeleine, maybe they will separate due to Bond having to have sex with other women in the line of duty (of course).

    Rather than killing her, which would be repetitive and cliche. And the M.:I. franchise already provided one alternative to this plot possibility.

    Also, of course tabloids will make stuff up - that's what tabloids do. Don't most people read tabloid stuff knowing that they're tabloids, being the main reason they read them in the first place?

    Especially considering how weak the Bond 25 announcement was (no title, not much of anything besides casting). The imaginary stuff they come up with ends up being free publicity in this context.

    It's not like the producers will be losing Bond fans anytime soon.

    Aston Martin has just posted this. While it does not say whether or not it will be featured in Bond 25, I strongly think it will be. Cool car, sure, but that colour...

    The tweet is in reference to a collaboration with EON to commemorate the 50th anniversary of OHMSS by building a special edition Superleggera (designed to match the color of Bond's Aston from that film).

    I'm having the same problem too. It's a forum glitch apparently.

    Is there another thread on the board with 75k+ comments? Might be due to size.

    Hope Daniel a speedy recovery- not to push it too much too soon. So far the tabloids have been accurate :0

    Found this, by upholsterer/furnisher Kirsty Lockwood at Pinewood

    "When you have to make new foam look old for the set." #bond25 #jamesbond



    Also, probably looking too much into things here, but over a year ago it seems she upholstered the seats on what appears to be a 1980s Land Rover Defender with the comment "Unique seats for a unique vehicle".

    A tad off topic but since production is suspended -

    If Warner Bros wasn't involved, one could think Nolan is filming Bond 26 at the same time Bond 25 is filming, in a massive secret plot by EON.
    “Tenet,” which is being filmed on location across seven countries, is an action epic evolving from the world of international espionage.

    Can't be too much longer until a composer is announced, surely?

    Maybe it's because of intense scrutiny as never before by the world's press and social media that one can easily gain the impression that 'something is rotten in the state of' Bond 25. If one is to give credence to persistent press reports, some believe that EON suprema Barbara Broccoli is the root cause. Because of her unwavering conviction that Daniel Craig 'can walk on water', it seems La Broccoli is prepared to do anything to keep the reportedly volatile Craig happy. It was Craig's personal wish to bring on board the ubiquitous Phoebe Waller-Bridge as 'script doctor' - bringing to six (!) the number of screenwriters for Bond 25 - whereas a more logical choice would have surely been Jed Mercurio, THE master of edge-of-seat drama. And as for appointing 'an intimacy coordinator' for the sex scenes between Craig and love interest Ana de Armas, what could be more risible? Did de Armas have 'intimacy coordinators' for her sex scenes in Mentiras y gordos, Knock Knock, Hands of Stone and Anima, in which the actress reveals very considerably more than one will ever see in a Bond film? One may be forgiven for thinking that the producers and writers of Bond 25 have lost sight of what it is that brings audiences worldwide flocking to see a Bond film - new or otherwise. In cravenly kowtowing to the PC and #MeToo lobbies, the producers are in grave danger of throwing out the baby golden goose with the bathwater.

    One hopes. I think it could still be a ways out, though.

    It may depend on the level of collaboration they're hoping to have with the (eventual) title song artist. Hasn't really been an issue on the last two films with Newman. But Arnold was down to work quite early (if I'm recalling my Some Kind of Hero chapter correctly) with Chris Cornell on Casino, as an example. Of course he was the composer-in-residence at the time, so that made sense.

    Much as I've enjoyed Tom's (underrated, IMO) work on the last two films -- I'd love nothing more than a full-blown Arnold finale to the Craig era with strong title song integration from the very start.

    I think they just trying to be careful they really don't want things screwed up this time.

    Sometimes weeks will pass without even being reminded that Bond 25 exists, thats how bad the PR job for this production has been. We had an announcement that Craig would return on Colbert which feels like it could feature in natural geographic it happened so long ago now. Then it was radio silence while Boylegate happened for the next year, and then that shambles of a conference where a warmed over Craig and cast tried there best not to look bewildered by the experience. Yes a few thousand diehards tuned in, but what is Bond doing to compete with the other brands out there? There strategy of keeing out of the public eye as much as possible is not condusive with the hyped-based culture we live in, and Bond seems seriously in danger of falling behind the times.

    If they follow a timeline like they had with SPECTRE, the first official image from the film should drop sometime in June.

    SPECTRE’s first image dropped in Feb. 2015, 2 months after principal photography began.

    June will be 2 months since B25 started filming, so hopefully they’ll drop something for us. We’ll see!

    We didn’t even have the title to the last Avengers film until, what, a few months from release? I think you’re grossly overestimating how much marketing should be done this far from release. It’s Bond. Everyone will get excited about it when it’s closer to release just like every other film.

    I still think a title should have been announced already. They said it was going to be announced after all. That is the one thing that worries me.
