  • November 2022 would be too much for me. I really don't care about the 60th anniversary.

    Same... that should never be the reason to hold back the film's release!

    Okay, so it seems NTTD will be the last primarily theatrical Bond film ever.

    Not sure why you're assuming that lol

    I am assuming that because of the latest Warner/HBO Max news. This is a decision that will have a profound effect on movie theaters and how companies will release their films in the future.

    It might. For now it’s just a one year experiment.

    In the US, the vast majority of people probably won't be able to get the vaccine at least until summer, according to Lieutenant General Paul Ostrowski. That's still nearly 3 full months after April.

    Unless they stagger the release, and release in other parts of the world first, I don't foresee the movie coming out in the United States in April.

    I do care about anniversaries, but I don’t think a new film is necessary to celebrate it. I hope we get NTTD somewhere in 2020 or 2021, and then a neat new box set with new bonus material for the 60th anniversary. IO Interactive might’ve finished their Bond game by then. And just maybe, EON uses 2021 and 2022 to seek a new actor which then can get announced on James Bond Day 2022. But that’s some wishful thinking.
    So I hope something happens in 2022, but not the release of NTTD.

    Fair. Perhaps it's only at the moment that I don't care about it, with everything that is going on.

    Well, to be fair, what has EON given youngsters in the past decade of so to get excited about?
    Billie Eilish. Sam Smith. Adele.

    That is pretty sad.

    This film will come kicking and screaming unto theatres. But don’t be surprised if this is the very last one. The next Bond film will be available on a streaming device.

    We are living in an extraordinary period. The theatrical experience, just like live theatre, will not vanish because of this pandemic. Once the dust settles, things will resume, however, I do expect the gap between theatrical and streaming will be narrower - but, being in the industry myself, this has been on the cards for sometime now, way before Covid. Essentially big studios films will still get a big international theatrical release, like Bond, but smaller films and indie films will (mostly) debut mostly directly to streaming. And we've been seeing this happen over the past 2 - 3 years already.

    Bond 26 will be theatrical before it streams. The revenue from an international theatrical release is too important, plus everything else which goes with that release which gives the film much more commercial value and increases audience demand to see it when the film does stream etc..

    Agreed. Although at this rate, it feels like we won't see 26 until about '26. :(

    I do hope they take a hybrid route for this film sooner rather than later, instead of a predictable yet last second delay to the end of the year. Sucks knowing it's finished and it's just...sitting there, waiting to be viewed. I'll take it now, please.

    If it can't be released in April (who knows at this point), I'd happily pay £20 if not more for the DVD (I've never owned a Blu-ray player). I'd like to see it at the cinema if possible but I'm not that fussy - I just want to see the film now and move on to Bond 26.

    I concur. I would pay an obscene amount to watch it now or in April for that matter. So long as it doesn’t get delayed again.

    I didn't think that would bother me as much as it's come to (initially, I was just grateful the film was actually completed and the pandemic didn't impede that -- could you imagine?)

    But as time goes on, yes. It's getting harder and harder to know it's just sitting there, along with a finished Hans Zimmer 007 score that I'm dying to hear.

    We're a year today, I believe, from that first trailer being released. And my fear is we're still nearly a year away from actually seeing the thing.

    We have a lot to be thankful for in the fact that we even still get James Bond films in this day and age, and certainly to the caliber of the ones we've been getting. But I also can't think of another franchise with a fanbase that's been asked to stomach these kinds of delays, gaps, and repeated gut punches in modern times. It sometimes seems like the best of times, and the worst of times, to be a Bond fan.

    Very well said. It's really frustrating.

    How much would you pay to go to a premium screening of NTTD alongside a streaming release?

    It seems the production budget for NTTD is $290 million.

    https://hmssweblog.wordpress.com/2020/12/03/nttd-cost-approaches-290m-b25-says/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

    The cost of No Time to Die was approaching $290 million as of mid-year, according to a U.K. regulatory filing.

    B25 Ltd., in a Dec. 1 filing, put the cost at 213.9 million British pounds as of June 30 for a “work in progress.” The filing defines that as “costs incurred on film production for which the film has not yet been completed or delivered.”

    At current exchange rates, that’s about $287.7 million.

    Eon Productions formed B25 as part of the making of No Time to Die. The movie has been delayed multiple times, including twice because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    No Time to Die currently is scheduled for release in April 2021.

    The filing also said the company received 95,487 pounds (about $128,600) as part of a U.K. job retention program. The payments were related to “furlough costs for payroll staff” from March to June 2020. The average monthly number of people employed was 25. The government payments were reported earlier this week by the Daily Mail.

    I know there is inflation but I can never get my head around these current budgets when compared to the Goldfinger, Thunderball and YOLT budgets.

    This was pretty obvious from the first moment they released the first poster.

    The font is Futura Black. I'm pretty sure tabloids would take that as evidence that Lashana Lynch is the future Bond.

    Every time I see a commercial for the Land Rover Defender, I get more and more excited to see the Norway chase. I wish we had some more details about it.

    Interesting development. However, no indication on the matter of streaming.
