    Where?

    Some are right here, for starters. Some days I feel like I'm in the front row of a pageant for drama queens.

    Bond films, DC films and remakes are all hated here.

    I think the babs and mike know all too well how Spectre was received, from the public, the press and the senior peeps at Sony. That said I don't think it's as bad as all that. It's Craig's worst along with qos, but not as bad as some.

    Craig's era though does seem like very high points mixed with wasted potential.

    The era has brought back some class and dignity to proceedings and the craftsmanship has never been higher. Spottiswoode? Apted? Tamahori? How the fck that guy was allowed near a bond film I will never know.

    And what can we expect to hear!

    At least they can't suspend production, since it technically hasn't begun.

    I'm sure it'll go the same way the last few conference calls have gone. If not, then we're in for a pleasant surprise.

    It's better that way, doesn't set you up for disappointment, only the possibility of surprise.

    I guarantee we won't hear anything about B25 until the tail-end of this year or later.

    If the writers strike happens, they will probably just say "Bond 25 is still in development".

    ...and that it should go into production in the next few years.

    The information people crave is not going to be announced on a conference call.

    What do you offer in the form of this guarantee?
    Not saying it wont happen, but to guarantee it, that's a pretty tall order.
    As with anything Bond related patience is the key. Any long term fan knows that. EON will let us the fans know, when they're good and ready, and they want us to know something. Till then it's a waiting game.

    I don't see a 51 year old Craig doing another Bond film. Sadly. But understandable. It also would be hard to sell to the public after another four year gap. And no, M:I Cruise is not an argument that counts.

    2019 with a new Bond actor is possible if they are already at it. Otherwise prepare for 2020.

    That's my worry. They probably wrapped on SPECTRE thinking Dan would return, not aware that the distributor business would take so long, and this possible strike. IMO, it will be like 1989-1995, 2002-2006, 2008-2012 where things are up in the air for a while.

    Now that the others mentioned it, I believe there's some political discussion embarking behind the scenes. I mean, perhaps with the recent turnouts, some of the crew are arguing over which direction should they take. That's another guess. Unless someone tells me the otherwise.
  • bondjamesbondjames You were expecting someone else?

    I on the other hand feel that they knew exactly what they were doing when they concluded SP, and Mendes and Craig (at the time) had no intention of returning. Hence the ending as it was, with its obvious TDKR approach. They fully intended at that time to close it out, but wanted to keep it open ended because....well because "never say never".

    My thoughts as well, and I believe that extends to the actor also. As time progresses, new ideas come in and are probably being thrashed out. Perhaps Craig intends to do one more now, as is being reported. Perhaps it's just a deflection until they get some clarity on distributor and approach so they can make a big announcement of a change (and he's in on it). Perhaps there's a faction that wants him back and one that doesn't. Nobody knows for sure, and we will all know in time.

    like I said as strange as it sounds I feel like I traded Bond Yes and Batman for MacGyver as those 3 are kind of stalling and well MacGyver now has a season 2... BUT I do hope we get a 25th bond film soon enough... I have a feeling (just a feeling I know nothing) that this summer Bond 25's release date and director will be announced and also announcing if Craig will be back or not (and I could care less what people think if Craig leaves my hope is for Fassbender or Hardy as both of them just feel very Conneryesque Tough and dark yet willing to have fun)


    But so this post feels more in tune with news..

    Purvis and Wade back I like my hope is they are smart and adapt You only live Twice they are strongest when adapting a book (looking at their weakest film Die Another Day really if they went with the original plan of the film ending exactly like the book moonraker and they cut out a few of the groaning one liners the film would actually be pretty solid and dare I say it top 10 so when adapting Fleming while they aren't great writers they are far from bad)

    Cyprus as a potential location: I could see it working as where they are keeping Blofeld honestly and I think that his escape off Cyprus could be a great action sequence (no idea how Bond would be involved but still)

    I would be fine with Lionsgate being the Distribution partner...


    Over all there isn't a bit of news (besides the lack of news) that is troubling me..

    Even if it was, Dan's a bloody tank.

    Let's wait how Dan looks in 2019. One can age quite a bit within four years at that age.
    I rather Craig quits on a high like SPECTRE than delivering something like DAF or AVTAK (from the age perspective)

    His age is even more prevalent with these longer breaks between films. Was quite the jump seeing him in QoS and then SF four years after.
