SPECTRE - The Countdown and Routines Thread

Well, it is under two months until the release of Spectre. So, I thought it was high time to inaugurate this little thread. Welcome to the countdown thread for Spectre!

I know many of us will be doing Bondathons. (Currently I only have 3 films left - Dr. No, From Russia With Love and On Her Majesty's Secret Service. And maybe the Craig trilogy in October)

And you doing a Bondathon? What what about other media - the soundtracks, Bond reference books, or the "Making of" documentaries? And many more no doubt. And what about the original form of media - the Ian Fleming novels?

For me, come September, I will be reading the Fleming novels, plus listening to the soundtracks. A couple of months of pure Bond, culminating in Spectre. (Naturally I will be quite "Bonded" out at that point, and will probably have a bit of a break from Bond!).

This has been my routine since Casino Royale. What is yours?

Edit - and please no spoilers.

    Perhaps an idea to daily update the topic title with the exact countdown in days towards the premiere in the USA and the UK :-D.

    As of today August 31st the countdown is.....:

    56 DAYS and counting until the premiere of "SPECTRE" in the United Kingdom !
    67 DAYS and counting until the premiere of "SPECTRE" in the United States !

    I live Bond every day so I doubt I'll need to go into a specific tradition but I usually watch the previous film in the series one or two days prior to the new movie. So SF will be on my list.

    Most rewarding that ever was? Casino Royale. :p

    I see Belgium is on the 4th of November @DarthDimi. Whilst poor old @4EverBonded has to wait until the 4th of December! Australia is on the 6th of November, which is odd as I've seen conflicting dates for that country. No info on China.

    On November 7th (my wife's birthday) I and my wife will watch Spectre at our local cinema which is a hotel too. It's the most modern and unique cinema complex in Switzerland.

    We will stay overnight, the hotel room has a door directly linking it to a loge on a balcony in the cinema hall where we will watch Spectre. Before that we'll have dinner.

    It's a surprise for my wife.

    Here are pictures and a link if you want to see more:

    My Bondathon is over once I've watched Skyfall. I also have the James Bond playlist on iTunes with my favourite tracks of all soundtracks which I listen to quite often since starting the Bondathon.

    That is amazing @BondJasonBond006. Loving the hotel room actually linking to the theatre seating area. Also, the dining room looks like a train cab. What a blast that's going to be!

    6th November (Australia)- that's much better than the 22nd for SF! I hope it is correct. However, once again, I feel awful sorry for @4everBonded- I would've seen SP multiple times by then!

    Yes, dear @QBranch - but at least I expect that unfair release as Skyfall was the same. I hate it!!! You should have heard me when I learned about Skyfall coming out Dec. 1st or 2nd, whichever it was. X( I think they heard me in Tokyo for sure (and I am nowhere near there). Korea had it a full month ahead of us! I don't see Korea on that list, but that is probably true again. Yeah, I see Taiwan has Nov. 6th, too. #-o Totally unfair.
    Sigh ... =((

    So I will be leaving the forum entirely probably mid October. :o3

    Actually Sony Pictures Australia says Nov 12 whereas Sony Pictures Australia Facebook says November 19. This is frustrating.

    The cinemas say the 12th, I'd say that's what it is

    I've suspended my Bondathon for now so as to watch the Craig trilogy closer to release date.

    Might read all the novels, too. Ah, that could take up time in the meantime- a Flemingathon, accompanied with reviews, which I haven't done before...

    Just a few more days until the US is at the two month mark! Ordering my tickets as soon as they're available and you can bet I'll be the first one in line, hours before the premiere.

    If it is indeed Nov 12th for me, then that would work out perfect. I'll start my Bondathon on Nov 1st, and watch two per day leading up to SP. Would you believe I haven't watched a single Bond film from beginning to end since SF hit DVD?! Sooo looking forward to that- I'm already getting itchy!

    The websites for Dendy, Reading, Event and Hoyts Cinemas all list the release date as November 12th.

    So Sam Smith is doing Spectre. Rather underwhelming. Judging by some of the bands suggested the Spectre Title Song Thread, I'm kinda glad that it's Smith, as some of them were bloody shocking. At least Smith is bland, and not truly horrible.

    Anyways,

    48 Days and 59 Days until Spectre is released in the U.K and U.S.A, respectively.
