You 'sound' bitter. Are hand models total divas then? LOL
Ahead of (or rather just after) the November - April delay there was one spot that aired on Jimmy Kimmel on James Bond Day following Craig's appearance. But otherwise just social media. So yes, telling indeed if they're paying for Olympics airtime.
No problem man I was just pointing out that NTTD doesn’t have that day and date release strategy and quite frankly I’m very happy about that.
I'm no expert but I wonder if some films struggling at BO (Black Widow, The Suicide Squad) is both a function of COVID and also people having the option to just watch at home. Perhaps if NTTD gets a lot of hype, it'll get people into the theaters. We'll see!
A bit of both, but I’m sure the latter is a bigger factor. Why go out to the movies when you can enjoy it in the comfort of your own home? Especially during COVID times.
With NTTD, people will only have the choice to see it in theaters or not until it’s available for home viewing months later. I’m sure that helped F9 a lot which is why it’s currently the highest grossing film so far because it has a healthy time to collect at the box office before it was available on demand.
I think the lesson learned here is that big movies have a harder time on streaming because unlike movie theaters they have to compete with EVERYTHING that’s on the internet, whether it’s Netflix, YouTube or TikTok videos. In the theater, movies only have to compete with themselves and the selections are finite compared to the internet.
HBOMax has likely already learned this, given they announced that they will not put new movies on their service beyond 2021. It was a curious experiment, proven unsustainable.
Is it only in cinemas right now? I think it's on TV in the UK, but strangely enough we still dont have footage uploaded anywhere
I take the opposite point of view. The entire DC era has been entrenched in Jungian psychology and theory, which makes sense given that Fleming was very interested in Jung. Now, the ridiculous foster brother angle aside, I have found it all to have worked quite well. In a time when F&F, Bourne, MI, and Kingsman have become huge action franchises (with cardboard characters), EON saw an opportunity to create a Bond with whom audiences would connect a little better. This has been Marvel's influence on Bond, and I think it's refreshing.
SOME audiences could connect with him a little better. Once again I have the feeling this is a generational thing.
Yes!!! I'm obsessed with the psychological (Jung, Campbell, Hillman, etc.) analysis of stories. The mythological aspect.
After "No Time to Die", I'm going to do some big project analyzing CR through NTTD. There is genuinely impressive narrative being told in the Craig Era. Some of the prior Bond films have flirted with it, but they brought it full focus in these and I love it.
Anyone able to save it?
It's not generational. It's called being an individual with your own likes and preferences.
This is true. Especially if you already pay for a streaming service why pay more to go see a film in a theater during a pandemic? Easier to stay home.
So regarding F9’s gross it’s obvious that a “theaters only” strategy benefited the film’s overall box office run but there were also two key factors in play. First, the COVID situation worldwide was better a couple of months ago, given nowadays spread of the Delta variant and second 1/3 of F9’s money comes from China.
And surprise, NTTD doesn’t even have a China date release.
International films only get chinese release dates on a short notice.
F&F9 had not China release date two or three weeks before it was released over there.
And the Delta variant is a little bit more contagious, but not more dangerous concerning severe illness.
Actually F9 Chinese release date was revealed 5 weeks before its May 21 opening. Let’s see what happens with NTTD.
Regarding the second topic it’s all about the overall perception of the Delta variant and currently people’s confidence about going to the movies is going down again. Anyway new lockdowns and restrictions are being made almost everywhere. This is not helping.
I know, that the people's confidence is the main problem.
But when you're vaccinated the risk to become severe ill is very, very low.
In addition you have the best ACs in movie theatres, where they exchange the air several times per hour. It would be bad luck to get the virus, and then become ill, when you sit in a movie theatre. You would be 1 in a trillion.
In addition: here in Germany we still have 1.5 metres between bookable seats in the theatre. So there are at least one or two empty seats besides you, and in front and behind you.
I’ve been reading in this forum for at least 6 years and now decided to register.
Yesterday I discovered this FAQ-Side on the 007 online store and posted it in the German Bond-Forum.
CineKompass might have read my post and tweeted it (as seen above).
Now the FAQ-Section is gone - probably just 3-4 hours after my post and the tweet.
Very mysterious 😅
I can still see it there. It's an older one, not any of the unseen newer ones.
EDIT: Wait, nevermind, I didn't see the dropdown menu. My bad!
Does this mean it's no longer going to be shown?
Still live in Canada. Japan has seen it already, according to some. Maybe it's been redacted as the commercial is about to come out and they need to do final edits? fingers crossed.
the listing that's been removed from the BBFC I know has been there for some months, it isn't (from my understanding) that Paloma/Nomi spot that Canada and Japan have. There's also the question of what is that new spot that Germany is getting in cinemas now - the same Nomi/Paloma one or another, or is it just the existing BOND IS BACK one.
The million dollar question! Anyone have any japanese contacts who've been to the cinemas recently?
