at least Black Panther was positioned during Oscar time as an awards title, with special screenings and so on...so definitely don't count this as such a title.
Anyway, looks like indeed pushed back to February 2020 - https://www.dcm.co.uk/news/latest-film-release-changes-31-july-2019
No but there should be.
The Bond franchise would have many more oscars then.
It stands a better chance at the BO against 'Gretel and Hansel', then it would have against 'Frozen 2' and 'A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood'.
But it does feel a bit strange that it takes so long. About the last vital thing we heard about the film was that there was a delay because Blake Lively hurt her hand, but that seems to have been already in 2017. It doesn´t seem probable that that delay should have been several years.
About time. Looking forward to seeing what it looks like as a sum of its parts.
Didn't know Law was in this. Cool. Looking forward for the trailer drop tomorrow.
I mean, it's almost never a good sign when a film is delayed without much word numerous times, only to be dropped into a month like January, but I'm still optimistic. I guess we'll see how it looks come tomorrow.
The trailer looks proper badass. Day 1 for me now!
I might give this a watch in cinemas when it comes out.
Are they planning to make only single film or series?
I have no idea, but it doesn't look to me like this is going to be a series. Just doesn't seem like the type of film for that.
EDIT: Ok, so aparently there is a series of books this is based on, so it might turn into a series of films if this one is successful.
It is a book series so if this one doesn't flop then...
I thought they were hoping to adapt all of the novels.
A bit surprised they didn't go for
as a title card.
This is an announced flop.
EON have the rights to all of them, yes.
And likewise @DeerAtTheGates, surprised they didn't go for that and I wonder why.
*puts on tin foil hat*
Proof that feminazi Barbara Broccoli hates the James Bond movies and wants to supplant it with teh womenz agenda!!!11111
*tin foil hat off*
I suppose because they want this to be on its own: small film, different public, different messages. This is the Broccoli/Wilson creative and artistic branch, away from Bond. Fine by me to market it as such, but that's not how you get money out of your film.
That's the thing. EON Productions Ltd. have all the wonderful creative abilities to make a damn good film. And having watched the trailer, it will be a must-see for me personally. This certainly is "Atomic Blonde" meets "Haywire" meets "Jason Bourne" and then with a slightly arty feel to it. This is Barbara Broccoli's 'new baby' in way. The Eon Productions-logo is heavily featured on this film whereas on Bond there's no mention of it (Same with "Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool").
But with such a strategy also comes risk...financial risk. Letting this premiere one week before "DC's Birds Of Prey" and two weeks before "Marv's The King's Man" doesn't bode well. Hence it has all the cards of becoming a 'critically acclaimed film losing money'. Which would be sad, as I obviously hope for Barbara personally that this will do well.
However, for me as a Bond-fan I am more conflicted. All the production time Barbara Broccoli & Michael Wilson didn't spent on Bond, went to "The Rhythmn Section". And although I do admire Barbara for rooting for female producers/actors/directors, isn't there a tiny bit of marketeer in her wanting to brand this as "From the producers of James Bond"? She also has to take into account Paramount Pictures who wanted to pick up this project and finance it. Why not a bit more ambitious campaign. So one can guarantee a sequel.
By the way: I am aware of the fact that Blake Lively was injured for a long period. So it's not only about wanting this to plan better. There are obviously unforeseeable circumstances that can take place. But there shouldn't be a reason to be so….'distant' with Bond when you are producing a non-Bond-Eon-film like this. Perhaps Barbara Broccoli really is that rich and powerful that she needn't to worry and can do whatever she wants, regardless of Bond(fans)…
