    Okay so what evidence do we have that cloning will be in the movie?

    And after the codename theory, are we going to have the clone name theory?

    There is none per-se,i just mentioned it a few pages back as a suggestion re Bond capturing Blofeld.
    Okay so it's pure fan speculation. Good, good.

    My hypothesis regarding the girl, which is highly speculative : she is the young Madeleine, the masked killer is Malek’s character when he was a rookie (the mask will help make more believable the time gap) he failed his murder attempt and years later out of pride he wants to finish the job.

    YES ! Exactly what I’ve been saying.... so it must be right ;)

    So you both go with the 'flashback' theory ?

    I do think it’s the most likely.

    Same here. Although I want to qualify this: 1)this is according to the very little info we have so far, 2)it is not contradicted by other info we have (Malek’s and Léa's ages for instance) and 3)I'm not sure I like the idea of such flashback as a lot could go wrong in the execution.

    That's what concerns me.
    The CR flashback in the PTS worked because it was a big moment in Bond's history and they didn't elaborate it after that,they just used it to establish him.

    This one,if it is to be used,is going to be a big part of the story AND linked to SP as well,so it has to work correctly and not take over the film itself.

    PLus, the CR pts isn't much of a flashback: what occurred was maybe just two or three days earlier. Not years.

    They leave it pretty vague I think that you could easily interpret as either being days, months, or years. It’s such an isolated sequence that there’s nothing in it that carries over onto the main film, other than it was the two kills that eventually lead to his 00 status.

    IIRC, Fleming’s Bond wasn’t immediately put in the 00 branch after his first two kills. That happened years sometime between his second kill and the casino job.

    To me Casino Royale was just a chronological story. A flashback to me is something that is literally communicated as such.

    For example, the beginning of Rogue One is a flashback because there's a moment where we cut from a young Jyn Erso to an older Jyn Erso, communicating that she was thinking about that moment.

    In Casino Royale the story moves forward and tells the story. Bond kills two people in the pre-titles sequence, he gets his 00 status during the title sequence and the next time we see him he's on a mission. To me nothing in that moment communicates a flashback.

    The only thing that could possibly would be the use of black and white, but I think that was more of a stylistic choice than trying to give off the idea of a flashback.

    Something that is shown in a scene that occurred at any time prior to the sequence in which its presented , even if by a matter of seconds, is a flashback.

    Precisely.

    In terms of its presentation, Bonds first kill is presented as a "flashback" but his second kill plays in sequence with the rest of the film.

    People are getting confused by the black-and-white photography. It's a stylistic gesture to demonstrate that once Bond has killed a man his life will never be the same. It's defined by blood. Hence the blood being the first colour we see onscreen. I'll let Barbara Broccoli explain:

    https://www.mi6-hq.com/news/index.php?itemid=4460
    "...we felt, since we're telling the story of him becoming a Double O, and you see the two killings and he becomes a Double O, the black and white is supposed to be his life before. Once he becomes a Double O everything explodes around him."

    The film CR is clearly meant to be Bond's first mission. There's even a moment early on where M talks of having just given him his licence to kill.

    CR wasn't a flashback. It plays in continuity with the story. We see Bond earn his 00 licence and then go on his first mission,

    The first flash of colour being the blood is meant to be a symbolic moment for the character. The black-and-white is not indicative of it being a flashback.

    I'm not a fan of the Madeline flashback theory. I think 'flashback' scenes rid actors of great moments to perform. Think of a movie like 'Tinker Tailor Solider Spy' a film laden with flashbacks. However, the most impactful scene is where Smiley recounts an encounter with the villain.

    It would have been an easy trick to do a flashback here. But by letting Oldman explainit to the audience, it becomes so much more impactful.



    If it's a flashback and it is a young Madeliene, I hope it last a minute and is part of some nightmare she is having.

    Of course it’s a flashback in that it’s showing something that had happened prior to the scene in which it’s presented.

    If we follow this logic then every scene that follows the previous scene is a flashback.

    GREAT news! Although I’m not sure yet he is good enough, I’m overjoyed about this news for two reasons: 1. He is Fukunaga’s choice. 2. David Arnold is not returning!!!

    Read my lips: Arnold will never work on a Bond film ever again.
    Please, @PanchitoPistoles, leave your inflated ego out of this thread and instead concentrate on contributing in a constructive manner. Would be much appreciated.

    Dryden is the second kill. He's shown first.

    Flashback cuts to the first kill in the men's room.

    Back to Dryden, the second kill is performed.

    Flashback to the first kill completed in the men's room.

    I always took the two kills thing to be more of a criteria to make you eligible rather than something that automatically gets you in. I don't think it's a case of you kill two people and immediately become 00whoever. Instead it's a case of when M is looking for new 00 agents, he/she only considers agents who have two kills or more, to make sure they can hack it. But it doesn't guarantee automatic promotion. It just means you'll be considered.

    Having said that, I agree with @Pierce2Daniel and @Denbigh that M promoted Bond pretty much straight away and CR is clearly meant to be Bond's first mission as a 00 and the rest of the film is following on from the Dryden kill. M makes this obvious. "I give him 00 status and he celebrates by shooting up an embassy". Doesn't really work if he's done multiple missions inbetween. Also, "I knew it was too early to promote you". That to me implies that he was promoted as soon as he killed Dryden and got the two kill requirement, and she's now wondering if that was a mistake.

    I do think that the film could easily work without being an origin story, with just a few minor changes (instead of him struggling with killing and being too trusting/involved with Vesper because he's a new agent, it'd be a case of him getting tired of the job and letting his guard down because of that). But as it stands I think it's clearly meant to be his first mission.

    In the book, his two kills are a flashback, and it's never really implied that it's his first mission as a 00. But that's the book. The film is different.

    They’re, for the most part, unrelated. There are companies that specialize in creating trailers. More often than not the director, composer, etc. are not involved.

    Really? Wow, I did not realise that at all? We could only be another month or two away from a teaser trailer/Title reveal?

    Precisely. I'll be very surprised if it's not with Hobbs and Shaw, given it's the last big tentpole movie of the summer until probably Terminator in November.

    Probably "Hobbs and Shaw" is safe bet, especially knowing that it is distributed by Universal. But if it's not the case, I think sequel of "It" or "Joker" can be interesting slots for B25 producers.

    If filming finishes in October, I can see the teaser being released alongside It: Chapter 2. But seeing as Hobbs and Shaw is a Universal production, it goes without saying that this is the most likely option. They have likely already begun cutting the trailer for release at the end of this month.

    Especially for a teaser, they don't have to wait until end of shooting to cut something together... Rocketman's was put together after a week of shooting just to get it out with Bohemian Rhapsody!

    4 years later and that's the first I'd seen it.

    Can't access the article as it's behind a paywall, but it seems like the Atlantic Road shoot didn't cost as much as one would think:

    The Norwegian Public Roads Administration let the filmmakers work (on the road) without charge when parts of the new James Bond movie was shot on the Atlantic Road.

    James Bond 25 in the Sassi of Matera, Nino Sangerardi: "Municipality grants temporary use of part of the Convent of Santa Lucia and Agata"
    sassilive.it/cultura-e-spettacoli/cinema-cultura-e-spettacoli/james-bond-25-nei-sassi-di-matera-nino-sangerardi-comune-concede-uso-temporaneo-di-parte-del-convento-di-santa-lucia-e-agata/

    (via Google Translate)

    "Free use of the works". This was decided by the Municipality of Città dei Sassi against the request for temporary use of the municipally owned building - sent by Lotus Production srl, registered office in Rome. To do? Cinematic footage of the script for "James Bond 25".

    The building, chosen for its strategic position, is located in Via Madonna delle Virtù inside the Rioni Sassi. It will be used from 26 June 2019 to 11 October 2019.
    It is part of the Convent of Santa Lucia and Agata, assigned by the City Council on March 15, 2019 to the Park Authority of the Murgia of Matera to create the multimedia exhibition center and info point of the national and regional parks called Porta dei Parchi.

    The heads of the organization gave the go-ahead for the temporary concession of the structure in favor of the Roman film company. The latter must perform various improvements: restoration of plaster areas subject to humidity, treatment and positioning of wall-mounted luminaires on both floors, replacement of three fixed skylights with new Wasistas opening windows, installation with desks, chairs and shelves, replacement of the two wooden Scurons in the Weddings area with new olive green color, mowing and disposal of external areas, installation of mosquito nets and fixed frame.

    Cost of the works? Euro 7,200.00 plus VAT plus the cost of furnishings that must be donated to the Municipality.

    If filming finishes in October, I can see the teaser being released alongside It: Chapter 2. But seeing as Hobbs and Shaw is a Universal production, it goes without saying that this is the most likely option. They have likely already begun cutting the trailer for release at the end of this month.

    Oh Jake24, I so hope you are right! That would be ideal as I break up for a 2 week holiday at the end of the month. If it does and their is a title release with it? I will be very happy and will play it on loop!!! :)) :-bd

    Who has the ultimate authority to pull the trigger on a title?

    That’s my assumption.
    So, if the story is true that, at the studio’s request, they pulled the announcement of the title at the last minute, she must have not been too keen on it either.

    Which is good. And I'm still glad they didn't keep that as the title.

    It’s a compromise. At the end of the day Barbara’s job is to produce a movie. The title is massively important to the studio as they have the marketing vultures breathing down their necks. One or the other can put forward their case if they feel it’s strong enough. QoS only got by the studio as the marketing department acknowledged they could use the 007 logo in a similar fashion to CR.
