    Some great photos on this thread; thanks. B-)
    I'm not reading comments any more, really - I don't want spoilers for the film.

    Here's this:

    Have this book ordered. Love all the books, even the photo based ones!

    160+ always seemed a good runtime for a movie rumored to be 3 hours long during the editing process. It’s goin to be epic.

    20 minutes is PTS, so still 2 hrs 40 minutes or so ... yeah, I'm very psyched about this film. B-)

    In this book, I predict very little. Probably more in a big behind the scenes of the franchise novel, if they do one.

    I think OHMSS, CR & SF could be regarded as the only 'Epic' Bond films. And these are the only Bond films with endings, where a Pivotal character dies....and it so happens that the characters who die at the end of these films are all women. Now NTTD is once again referred to as 'Epic'. I don't know, maybe it means another female character might die, instead of Bond....just a tentative opinion though.

    I'd give anything for this film to end with Bond and Paloma in an orange dinky floating off into the sunset
    I’d rather he ends up with Madeline: I don’t know anything about Paloma.

    Yeah I know what you mean mate, but what we know about Madeline, her character was somewhat boring or plain. Although I am more interested about what they do next with her character in No Time To Die.
    Paloma has shown almost as much personality in the trailer for NTTD than Madeline in all of Spectre.

    In what way? She fired a gun and hasn’t said a word. Is it just because you think she’s attractive?

    To me, the term "epic" is still grounded in the Campbell definition of the epic hero and hero's journey. Intentional or not, the cinematic Bond has mostly followed the basic pattern of the hero's journey. An evil entity arises (the villain), the hero (Bond) is called into action (by M), the hero embarks, has adventures and obstacles (locations), and then eventually defeats the evil entity through cunning and resourcefulness, and then returns.

    Almost every Bond film has followed this formula, with slight variations.

    Interestingly, CR is the one that strays from the formula the most, given that our hero never does defeat the villain and does not turn for home (or arrive home) with satisfaction.

    My feelings on the ending:

    Bond's "death" is assumed. That could be an explosion, a collapse, whatever.

    Cut to: A scene with Moneypenny receiving the Royal Doulton.

    Cut to: Madeleine at the rocky beach, which is lit to look like a dream...

    Madeleine, swimming, sees Bond approaching. She smiles.

    Madeleine: I didn't think you'd join me. I didn't think you'd have the time.

    Bond: We have all the time in the world.

    Madeline: But no time to die!

    Bond: Er.. what?

    IMDB has the film listed at 163 mins now.

    My nearby theater has it at 2 hours and 43 minutes as well (AMC). As long as the content is good, I'm more than happy with this being the longest Bond film yet! I am a little glad it didn't quite reach 3 hours though, just because of the added risk of it dragging on for too long. Of course you never know until you see the film - just a potential concern.

    I'm not concerned about a 163 minute run time, provided it's entertaining. Avengers Endgame is a 3 hour movie which feels like 2. If NTTD can do that I have no issue with a massive run time.

    “It was essential to rediscover Bond”. I hope that means that Fukanaga used the Fleming literature as inspiration...

    It was essential after the bad mistake they made with Spectre.

    I am expecting for Lea and Daniel to have better chemistry in this one. I liked Spectre for the most part, but I think even their chemistry will be turned up a notch in this one.

  • Looks like it's going to be a whole hour longer than Quantum of Solace.

    The thought had occurred to me. It either makes the film seem super relevant or slightly inappropriate.

    The other fly in the ointment is that if the world is in the middle of a full blown pandemic by April then no one is going to be heading to the cinema. It's not inconceivable I suppose that they might delay release in some markets

    No time to release a movie.

    Yep. For sure it will be the box office wise least succesful movie of the Craig era. Asia and now lots of european countries will have a low box office because of corona. Either because cinemas are closed or because people are afraid of going to the cinema.

    Had the same thoughts this morning. A patient with an unnoticed CoV-2 infection went to a cinema in Bavaria, now everyone that sat close to him is at risk of developing and also spreading the disease. I do not think the disease is more dangerous than an influenza infection (which has killed more people than CoV-2), but people tend to get panicky and avoid going to public places once infections are on the rise. Bad news not only for businesses.

    Ooh gosh no: it feels its length. Especially when it cuts to Hawkeye and Black Widow and you realise there’s yet another space jewel to collect.

    Felt very Fleming-y to me with the crater base etc.

    The fatality rate seems to be slightly higher than flu. About 2% I think. Which is pretty bad. If it goes unchecked that's a significant number of people globally who won't be here next year.

    I imagine EON are more than a little bit worried. I wonder if the premier might not be postponed?

    Bond: We have all the time in the world.

    Bond tosses his sunglasses aside and dives into the water.

    Fade out.

    This would totally work for me!

    Haha it was meant as a joke, but it was a crap joke to be honest
    But yeah Ana is extremely attractive, probably clouds my opinion.

    Embrace yourself. The "James Bond is no longer a profitable franchise" headlines are coming. Tabloids love this BS.
