    I imagine this thread will reach 1000 pages before NTTD comes out at this rate. 😆🙁

    And isn’t this thread the sequel to the production diary thread? How many pages was that? Lol

    Goldfinger doesn't count?
    I thought he had a whole movie about him! :D

  • NTTD was meant to be out today in the UK (12th November).

    Hopefully some time next year (2nd April hopefully), we might be allowed to see this film instead of being endlessly teased about it.

    I don't mean to be a pessimist, but I'm completely convinced we'll see it November '21 at the earliest. This whole experience is BBB (Bond Blue Balls).

    To me, streaming is the only answer at this point with special limited theatrical presentations for die hards. Time for pre-production on 26.
  • I'm almost certain it won't be coming out in April. Even if this Pfizer vaccine is ready by early next year, it'll probably take at least a few months before we see noticeable improvement and cinemas start operating normally again. On the bright side, I'm also pretty sure they won't push it back any later than November next year. Eventually they'll get to a point where they can't afford to push it back any further and if it still can't go into the cinema, it'll have to go to streaming. If things improve over the summer, perhaps they'll move it to a date in September or October.

    I’ve been saying it since the last delay. The movie will not come out in April. We will not see this movie until the pandemic has completely subsided.

    No need to worry. Now that Biden will be president, Covid-19 will be vanquished.

    I think we'll see things starting to return to normal by June/July.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say that but it will be better than going down the path of herd immunity.

    Yeah I was thinking that if they'd scheduled it for summer it would be in for a better chance of sticking put.

    I always forget that Joanna was a Bond Girl. A very talented actress altogether.

    Here's the full article for those unable to access it:
    In autumn 2018, Lashana Lynch was starring at London’s Royal Court Theatre in the play ear for eye, a production supported by long-time Bond producer Barbara Broccoli. Something about Lynch’s performance and stage presence caught Broccoli’s attention, and she called her in for an audition.

    Lynch was very excited. The Bond franchise! “It’s just so classy; it’s like the crème de la crème of movies,” she says. Following the meeting, she was given the role of Nomi, a rising star in MI6, in No Time to Die, the latest £195 million Bond outing, directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, which is now due to be released in April.

    “When I first spoke to Barbara and Cary about the character, they said that Nomi is stealth-like and very intelligent, and she has to be a match for Bond. Cary was like, ‘She needs to be the biggest badass possible, and a real human being,’ ” Lynch says. That was music to her ears and great motivation. The character is also “very playful, very cheeky, very sarcastic and dry”, making her a good foil to Daniel Craig’s more serious Bond. “They know how to go straight into battle and use every facet of themselves, but when they’re together, it’s a really interesting match, because they’re like an odd couple.” And she concedes that Nomi is a bit of a teacher’s pet with M: “She likes to do things right and be patted on the back when she’s got it right. She likes to be the example in MI6 and to be looked at. She loves the attention.”

    When Lynch, 32, first heard that Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge had been drafted in to bring a fresh and female perspective on the script, “I literally squealed,” she said in an interview last year. She recalls thinking, “British girl like me? She’s going to know how to actually take care of women on screen.”

    It’s the end of the road for token eye candy Bond girls, as Nomi redefines the Bond heroine. “Everyone was really responsive to having her be what I wanted,” she told the Hollywood Reporter. “You’re given a fresh perspective on a new black woman in the Bond world.”

    To add to the character, Lynch asked the stunt team to turn her into a ninja. “Every day, they were training me hard, having me switch from one weapon to another: boxing, wushu training. Some would say that Nomi is like a female, updated – but, of course, very different – version of Bond,” she says. And rumour has it that she’s inherited his 007 code name.

    In the new film, they first meet in Jamaica, where Bond has retired. “Nomi likes to use his age to make him feel really uncomfortable. Because she is young, she has the new gadgets, she has the new training, she’s updated, she’s close to M – all the things that he doesn’t have at that point. She really sizes him up, which, as a young woman coming to this guy who she knows is so experienced, is a big challenge. But she was ready to take on that challenge.”

    It’s fitting that Nomi and Bond pair up in Jamaica, where Ian Fleming first wrote about the spy on his GoldenEye estate. British-born Lynch has roots in Jamaica, where her grandmother was born. “It just felt like a mesh of two worlds that I love, all wrapped up in one movie. And for me to play my culture at work, and celebrate my culture at work, was really important to me. I got to play a Jamaican and a Brit at the same time, which is what I am. That was special.”

    Lynch attended Arts Ed drama school, then jumped straight into theatre, earning money in retail jobs to support herself. She has appeared in British TV dramas including Silent Witness and Death in Paradise. Her debut feature was the 2012 British film Fast Girls, and she went on to star in the ABC series Still Star-Crossed. Playing Maria Rambeau, fighter pilot and single mother, in Captain Marvel, released last year, brought her versatility into the limelight. And as well as Bond she can be seen in FX’s new series Y: The Last Man, set in a post-apocalyptic world where women rule and just one man is left alive.

    That sounds an appropriate follow-up to Bond. For now though, the Omega watches ambassador – who wears a 38mm Seamaster Aqua Terra Master Chronometer as Nomi and chooses a 29mm 18ct gold and diamond Omega Constellation Manhattan when not in character – can enjoy having starred in one of the biggest film franchises in history. “I’m so proud to have been able to bring Nomi to life,” she says – and you know she’s having the time of her life.

    Per the article: "It’s the end of the road for token eye candy Bond girls, as Nomi redefines the Bond heroine."

    I kind of beg to differ, here. Michelle Yeoh and Olga Kurylenko had already begun to redefine that role.
