    Read this article too! Interesting trivia to know. He's the only president that didn't have a new Bond film since the films began, no?

    The article I posted on this was a few pages back.

    I have a feeling NTTD will be the only Bond film released during Biden's term.

    Me too, when he and Harris came to give their victory speeches, I joked semi-seriously that they are my country's next 2 presidents.

    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.

    Same old quote we have heard for centuries. Doesn't anybody really watch these films? Even Honey was redefining female roles in Dr. No.................. anybody for self sufficient and black widow spider.

    Yeah, I said the same thing last year. I’ve had enough of the same old rubbish everytime there’s a new Bond film. Maybe they’re told to say it.

    I wouldn’t be surprised. I seldom give the Bond films much thought these days. They’re too few and far between. No point in even thinking about them.

    New minor set picture from Matera. Allow me to explain:

    Bond jumps off the bridge, landing on the first level, runs through a tunnel/doors on that level and finally kicks up a door and out. We have seen that briefly in one of the BTS videos. This is part of that tunnel set with the door they built near Matera. I was told the construction wasn't finished when someone took the picture.

    So, when a disgruntled employee will start to dropping leaks? It is that we are bored... (and it is not the 4 uninteresting mugs from the official store, that no one asked for, will come to occupy us). Need some excitement.

    The absolute minimum effort has been put into designing those mugs. I can't help but think they do it on purpose.

    Me too. It's very lazy surface criticism that doesn't stand up to scrutiny when you watch a handful of the early Bond films, never mind the more recent films.

    Wasn't the promotion for GE the first time that the line (paraphrasing) "We're not Bond girls, we're Bond women" used? If that's the case, this promotional aspect is at least 25 years old now.

    What do you mean it was the “second attempt”?

    I tend to think about Bond movies constantly. LOL

    Still, when asked if Craig's replacement were cast yet, Barbara DID say there will be some time after NTTD is released, and afterwards they'll begin contemplating the future of the series.

    That says to me: "Don't hold your breath".
    My hunch is we're in for a very long wait.

    The journo who writes the article says that, not anyone being interviewed. I can't see much point in getting annoyed about it; it's publicity.

    Also: maybe she does redefine the Bond heroine. We haven't actually seen it yet so it's not for any of us to say 'no she doesn't'.

    I'm going to disagree with you about Nomi redefining "the Bond Heroine". Though I have not seen NTTD I have the feeling that, from what I've seen in the trailers, that her character will stay well within parameters of Way Lin. Also, Nomi's character does not fill the role of Eye Candy, like Jill Masterson, but is more like the role filled by Jinks. Basically it makes her sound like she doesn't know what she is talking about.

    But until we see it we can't know.

    Although I'd say Nomi does have the edge because she won't have any romantic interactions with James Bond. While Wai Lin was completely capable and one of the toughest female characters in the franchise, the writers still offered a romantic relationship between her and Bond, whereas Bond and Nomi's relationship will be strictly professional, and they'll just be allies.

    And no matter how strong Wai Lin was, she still got tied up at the end and needed Bond to rescue and kiss her.
    Maybe Nomi will need rescuing, maybe not, but as least -as you say- she won't need to be kissed by him. The potential for something a little more interesting is there.

    TBH I think both Wai Lin and Melina Havelock would've been better served by ending their respective films without hooking up with Bond. Sometimes a strict adherence to formula hampers individual characters, and I'm glad that that won't be the case with Nomi.
