Haven't thought about that yet. But seems unlikely. Moreover, a gunbarrel at the end isn't confirmed either. I have a feeling, looking at Thomas Newman's score, that the gunbarrel will be in the middle, being part of the actual plot.
the gun barrel is confirmed at the end.
You can enter just at the end of the showing, watch the gunbarrel, roll the credits, and then watch the movie at the next showing.
I think it's just for the sake of changing things.
I'm not talking only about the gunbarrel here, I'm talking about the whole "Bond formula".
They got stuck with repeating the same old stuff during the Brosnan years, because they were afraid that changing the formula would ruin it. When they finally had to do it in 2006 and it worked, now there's a constant need for changing things, even if it's absolutely pointless.
I'm a bit disappointed with this, but I hope the film delivers.
Yes, I would have liked a gunbarrel at the beginning. Just for tradition's sake. But is it in any way essential to the film? NO. Essential is the acting, the script, the cinematography, the soundtrack, the editing.
Lighten up, people. Maybe have a beer, with some real friends.
Will it ruin the film? No.
Is it a tradition that I wish they'd kept because we haven't had it for a while and it's the 50th? Yes.
I totally agree. Now, please, lets move on. No point in debating this until we have seen the whole film.
Because of all this gunbarrel buzz, I could not stop myself from reading the first review of The Daily Mail. Full Five Stars :-). And Naomie Harris.......
Well, I use my personal picture as an avatar. You use a gunbarrel hehehe :P.
I am the biggest fan of the gunbarrel sequence. My Youtube page is pretty much dedicated to them.
but am i devastated by it? hardly... it's more of a "meh - alright." kind of disappointed... it's a bummer, but oh well.. CR and QOS didn't start with the gun barrel either (though yes, it was the lead-in to the PTS in CR)... a Bond movie is defined by more than the gun barrel... (but to some, thats all that defines it)..
either way, still looking forward to it - and a couple reviews i read gave it great praise.... more or less saying "it's not the best Bond movie ever like they set out to make, but it's one of the best.. and once again, Craig shines as Bond." ..... thats all i need to hear :D
No matter how good the rest of the film is, people will call it the second worst Bondmovie ever just because the gb is not at the beginning. I'd love to see it, but if that's the only "bad" thing about Skyfall, well...
I'm not haappy we havent had traditionl GB at the beginning for 10 years, but given the reviews this one is getting an how good CR was, we've had 2 of the best films in the franchice since so I dont care if its at the beginning, the end, or between every different scene.
I'm just grateful that Bond is back on screen again after 4 years.
Just get over it and go enjoy the film.
Very disappointing and puzzling why the GB is where it is. But we should all feel blessed we have a new Bond film at all.
If people say that it sucks only because of the GB at the end, then humanity is forever lost.
But a thought has occurred to me tell me what you think, this is only a press screening, perhaps they want to save this sequence for the world premiere,because eon would visit these sites, so they would know people's own opinions so perhaps they are saving it for a bigger audience. they have filmed a sequence with daniel wearing a grey suit, as you can see it on you tube clip called secrets of skyfall.
I do recall that bbc when screening a dr who episode with david tennant and catherine tate, they kept it secret that billie piper was coming back to the extent that they cut it out of the press screening, so everyone saw this scene on the launch night !
Lets just wait to see what happens, the most important thing we should remember bond is back and that is what is important.
