    And that’s the last time Craig will play 007.

    Heh! Good point. Well unless there’s some other skit, but this was actually officially sanctioned so you’re probably right.

    I did titter at that sketch I must admit. He does send himself up well. And they even managed a bit of continuity to tie into the upcoming film! :)

    Yes I did pick up on that too, “I am dating a doctor actually...”

    Does this mean this skit takes place in 2015, straight after Spectre and before NTTD.

    Timeline shenanigans inbound.

    Well I guess it depends how NTTD ends! :)

    I just got done watching the Snyder cut. And yup, I’m thinking what you lads are. Snyder for the next Bond. He has the visual talent to bring Bond to screen.

    I could get behind a Zack Snyder title sequence, nothing more.

    That sketch was rubbish. Impressive makeup on Tate though!

    Following the every-other-Craig Bond-is-better theory -- a/k/a the odd-numbered-Craig Bonds-are-better maxim -- then the little spoof is Craig's Bond 6 (in order of production, not release) and was inferior, reportedly, supporting the idea that NTTD (C-B-5) will be brilliant !

    The other patterns ?

    Brosnan Bonds go from best to worst over the course of the 4 films
    Dalton Bonds both waste his performances
    Moore Bonds make waves: peaking at the third, troughing next, then rising for two, then troughing
    Lazenby REALLY quit because he knew they'd not likely top that first one
    Feldman's Bond needed another few Bonds ; >
    Connery Bonds -- including his non-canon last one -- peak at the third, dip thereafter but remain great fun

    Pattern says NTTD will have a casino scene.

    Just keep him a mile away from the script. Just let him direct. Snyder can make a hell of a bond film. He is something of a visual auteur.

    I think the closest we will get to a casino scene is the Cuban night time scene, with bars and the big meeting. Very glamorous like a casino, but no actual casino.

    More than one year now that the film is delayed, they could had used this time for create a very nice blu-ray editions.

    What should we could have:

    - Film as a theatrical release in the local language and in the original english one (and with subtitles in the local language and english).
    - Deleted scenes (with if possible a commentary from the director who explain why they are not in the movie).
    - Possible director cut (cut scenes, scenes censored for the cinema restored, alternative camera angles/shots).
    - Screentests of main actors who have passed one (including those of reccaled actors, as is the case in the Goldfinger DVD).
    - VFX breakdown: scenes with and without digital special effects (and with the original sound effects), decompositions of the different layers of digital special effects.
    - Audio commentaries (directors, producers, possibly other people from the team).
    - Analysis of accessories and costumes (they are taken out of the boxes) with, if possible, the technical team members who created them.
    - Virtual tour of the sets (if there is filmed videos that exist and could be use for that).
    - Interview with goods questions.
    - Various documentaries :
    * Screenplay breakdown: documentary on the evolution of the film's plot.
    * Making-off.
    * Stunts (with the planned choreography videos filmed by the stuntmen).
    * Replicas of the Aston DB5
    * Filming locations
    * Being James Bond (the upcoming Craig documentary)
    * Before Fukunaga (Boyle period)
    * The music of the movie (with unused Zimmer track, and Dan Romer unused work extracts).
    - Blooper (funny outtake).
    - Music video for Billie Eilish's song.
    - The original demo recorded on a bus of Billie Eilish's song (since nobody thought it would be nice to include it on the soundtrack CD).
    - Photo gallery.
    - Concept art gallery
    - Storyboards gallery/video
    - Videos of 3D previews created in anticipation of the shoot.
    - The various trailers and TV spot.
    - Videos already published on the internet (vlog, press conference, possible London preview).


    But... what we probably gonna have in reality :
    - Film as a theatrical release in the local language and in the original english one (and with subtitles in the local language and english).
    - Music video for Billie Eilish's song.
    - The various trailers and TV spot
    - Videos already published on the internet (vlog, press conference, possible London preview).

    (The majority remaining will stay in some obscures boxes at EON, away from Bond fans eyes, exepect the few material that we will see in the making-off book).

    Do bonus take time and money (but note that lot of them just consist to dig back and assemble some materiel who are stocked somewhere on hardrives, and talk with peoples few hours via Zoom or other messaging service).

    The fan don't gonna buy and it's gonna be a money disaster? EON seems to think fans would buy horrible Moonraker sweatshirt at 170€ that they didn't ask for on 007 store, but they think they would not spend theirs money on special edition of Bluray that they asking for? Bonus is what makes people buy physic editions of films (and where a a time, before QOS, where EON was an exemple in the industry).

    I wouldnt expect anything even referencing the Boyle version ever again from EoN. That will be left to outside authors. Same with directors cuts. Never done previously, and I dont think that will change anytime ever.

    Me too, but it's something that should be at least in the making-of book of Mark Salisbury, otherwise it's promise to be a very sanitized & incomplete book...

    I have no idea what Fukunaga posted; I'm not on Instagram. Regardless, this promises to be a thoughtful discussion. . .

    Does anyone think we will get a final confrontation between Bond and Blofeld outside the prison exchange?

    I know there was a line in the Total Film publication that Blofelds voice is heard at the Cuba gathering. I think it might only be those two scenes for Blofeld though. Unless someone has another theory or information.

    Yes, in a more serious Guy Hamilton/Tom Mankenwicz type of situation. They didn’t cast Christoph Waltz to waste him, in only one movie.

    There's no way they'll carry this storyline over to the next Bond so they'll have to wrap it up here.

    Part of me believes that Blofeld will be involved in the showdown at Safin’s lair in a significant way.

    I wonder if Safin will take a page out of Blofeld’s playbook and print off some headshots of Craig’s important adversaries to elevate the final showdown LOL

    Sorry, still bitter about that poor, poor decision...

    Mendes is a skillful director and far too skillful for some of the crap that happened with SP. I sometimes wonder if he intentionally went overboard with stuff like the headshots, out of some sort of bitterness.

    It's really something, isn't it? When you actually type it out: "he pasted up photocopied headshots of actors from the last few films" . . . well, it sounds laughably awful.

    You could apply that to pretty much any of the classic Bond films though. "We'll have our first look at him when he appears with a dead seagull on his head"

    It’s not just Bond, just read, ‘ Indy climbs into a refrigerator which is then thrown several miles by an atomic blast; upon landing he exits , dusts himself off and carries on’ .
    Spielberg signed off on that. Lol.
