BOND 25 Gun Barrel Sequence OOO O O O

edited March 12 in Bond 25 Posts: 416
Spectre finally gave Daniel Craig the chance to open a film with the traditional gun barrel sequence, but it still didn't completely transition into the opening sequence. What do you think Bond 25's gun barrel with offer. Will it once again open the film, and will it be a complete transition opening to close his chapter of the franchise.

    I personally feel they will now continue the opening gun barrel. I mean, it's so thrilling when it happens at the cinema. I would be gutted if it didn't happen, but im sure it will. I would be happy with the spectre gun barrel again, but the circle actually moving into the sequence, rather than fade out. I understand why they did it with spectre though, due to the dead are alive text.

    But will they use the same one or film a new one. I actually like the spectre one with the gun swinging. Too bad it doesn’t open on the eye socket of the skull as in the script.

    Also I don’t like how the music lined up with it. But everything else: the walk, the socket, etc. was great. Craig hasn’t had a good gun barrel since cr imo. I hope they can finish with a good, traditional one.

    A Bond film not starting with the gunbarrel falls very short on my rankings.
    I can forgive Casino Royale because it was justified, but not with QOS and Skyfall.
    Opening SPECTRE with the gunbarrel was a reason why I adored the film.
    I see no reason why Bond 25 shouldn't open with it and I hope Fukunaga will respect the traditions instead of trying a gunbarrel-less artsy opening.

    I like what cr did with it. There was no reason to not resume the normal gun barrel at the beginning with qos though. The openings of qos and even sf pale in comparison with the gun barrel.

    I hope they do a proper gun barrel opening.

    Agreed!
    I wasn't even bothered by the James Bond Theme build-up during the logos in SPECTRE, I liked that one. That "Dead are Alive" caption was kinda out of place to be honest.

    Looks perfect, @AgentJamesBond007

    I would think that with it likely being Craig's last, we would get to see at least one of his gun barrels with the iris opening on the PTS. Preferably opening in a corner, rather than centred.

    As much as I like the gun barrel it does not make the film.

    I certainly wouldn't rank a film based on it, the fact that the one DC film that we get the traditional GB is SPECTRE is no accounting for quality.

    Also the black screen almost ruins the experience, Mendes pretentious decision, when opening the iris on the skull puppet would have been so much better says it all really.

    Yes I want it at the beginning for Bond 25 but I'd go without to avoid the chance of another lazy film like SPECTRE.

    I like the score and the SP gunbarrel I must admit.
    But,as with the majority here,open the damn thing up at the end.

    Otherwise,by all means re-use it,have a bit of consistency at least !!

    I aggree. It's such a thrilling moment when you hear the music and see those circles. Ha. I was so excited when it finally came back with Spectre. That's one reason I loved spectre so much. They had more fun with that film and it finally had all the bond elements. As long as it opens the film ill be happy. But if they do a full traditional one then I will be pleased even more. They should never take away the gun barrel at the beginning. It's a tradition.

    Honestly I loved how the music lined up. I liked how you could hear the music before you saw the bun barrel. I knew it was coming before it happened and was pleasant surprise. I know what you mean about it not lining up, but I thought it was perfect with it been daniels first opening gun barrel. Hopefully next one lines up more.

    That's very good. I hope it's like that kind of. They seem to have blood spill faster now and not as much. I think that is a perfect gun barrel well done, but i think it will be just slightly more modern in the way spectre was done.

    This is how I want it.

    Hoping that it is now at the beginning of the movie and into the pre titles sequence.

    Nah. Keep everything about the spectre one except the music and not opening to the pts. And obviously the yellow taint.

    Exactly what I'd love to see in B25.
    Great job!

    Yes, very good @Gareth007. That’s pretty much how I’d like to see and hear it too.
  • mattjoesmattjoes No location this time, but please send your suggestions!

    I really want the blood to come down in that slightly choppy motion from the older gunbarrels. Nowadays, it would give the gunbarrel sequence a very appealing retro touch.

    Yes! I also want the blood to ooze rather than plop down, so we can hear the Bond Theme melody in it's full glory.

    Looking back at it now, it's a shame Spectre had the gun barrel at the start of the film.
    It would have been a fitting way to end DC's tenure as Bond with a traditional gun barrel.

    Hopefully Daniel nails the gun barrel in Bond 25, all his traditional ones look like rushed after thoughts that were filmed quickly. The only way I would Daniel to be like Pierce is the gun barrel because Brosnan was great at the gun barrel I always thought

    Disagree, it's one of the reasons I consider SPECTRE a fantastic film in terms of style. Of course, CR wins when it comes to action sequences and script. But I loved the old school formula back for SPECTRE.

    No way. I cannot believe you said that. A true bond fan always gets excited with the opening gun barrel. Im glad it returned. it should never have gone.

    I feel extremely uncomfortable with a Bond film not starting with the gunbarrel (except in CR).

    I must admit one of my highlights of the film was the gun barrel being back at the start but it opened onto a fade to black just felt underwhelming after Skyfall and even QOS opening shots

    IMO, the Bonds should always open with the gunbarrel unless you're watching NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN.
    If Eon were to continue to remove it, I'd be surprised they don't get rid of the title sequence tradition and theme song as well.
    If I want a film that doesn't have the gunbarrel, and other traditional elements I can always watch a DIE HARD movie or something.
