    Just watching that video of DC serves as a brief reminder that the next portrayal -- not just the player but the script, direction and all else -- will have to be FANTASTIC to move things on.

    Absolutely right. The journeyman era is over.

    It's true that Bond films have been turned into "prestige pictures," and increasingly demand huge talent, both sides of the camera.

    But all that talent doesn't come cheap, and if the 'Blockbuster age' is ending, one wonders where the budgets will come from. . .

    Blockbuster age isn’t ending. Quite the opposite. We are entering into terminal blockbuster mode where cinemas only carry blockbusters while lower key stuff goes to streaming.

    Perhaps. But it is important to note that Daniel Craig was virtually a "nobody" when cast as Bond 16 years ago.

    If Bond doesn't have the budget, nobody has it, apart from maybe Disney. Ergo there just wouldn't be much of a market for talent above what Eon is willing to pay. And lower budgets don't have to be a bad thing. Sometimes it can breed creativity and attract people who are more interested in making a good film than getting that Bond cheque.

    No, not really. He was starring in movies, the sort of films he was interested in, as well as several prestige TV series which he headlined in; he was a pretty big name in drama circles. I certainly knew his name beforehand: I was surprised when it came up. He was making a few Hollywood movies too even if they weren't great stuff. He was probably a more credible name than the previous two actors (even Dalton, who I know has the 'Shakespearian' epithet but was really making episodes of Charlies Angels, potboiling US mini series and naff comic book movies :) ).

    Spectre had a budget that was around 40% more than Mission Impossible Rogue Nation the same year (MI's budget was $150m), and although you can see where that money went in places, equally in terms of spectacle it's not like the MI film was lacking all that much. It does make you wonder if Bond couldn't take a lower budget.

    And I know some of that is marketing, but that's where the product placement is supposed to help out isn't it?

    Well it seems unlikely he'd volunteer: "Instead of phoning my mum I must publicly wish that big luxury car brand well on their entry into a megarich sport" :D
    I was thinking he seems a bit croaky there even, but it's no business of mine :)

    I detected a little bitterness from Gemma after Daniel's well wishes. (Am I reading into that too much?)

    I have watched it a few times, now. I dunno. Kind of odd. "Daniel Crehhheg...thank you for that wonderful message." She did an odd twist of the head with her arms stiffening on "...that wonderful message." Then again, she seems uncomfortable with the whole thing. LOL.

    No.

    She has recently spoken out against her QoS role saying she wished she had never taken it. I guess at a time when Bond could be viewed as 'toxic masculinity' an actress might want to distance themselves from the franchise. But she'll happily take Aston Martin's money.

    That’s not exactly hypocritical. And just because she thinks Bond women roles could be better it also doesn’t follow that she bears any grudge against Craig.

    I’ve been told by vital sources that Bond says “y’all” in this movie.

    In light of the thread about our favorite “moments” in each Bond film, something tells me that the Jamaica scenes in NTTD will have some of the best scenery/landscape moments, lifestyle moments, Bond being Bond moments, probably some light humor thrown in. Cannot wait!

    No because that was said with a sense of irony.

    An Academy Award for screenwriting surely must be on its way?

    With a deep voice, from the stomach.

    Perhaps, but I think a deep, stomach voice would put more emphasis on Bond's toxic masculinity.

    Ffs fill in the gaps and stop baiting me please.

    Clearly if it’s in the same way I won’t mind. I don’t like the Americanisation of bond is what I’m saying.
