Missing out on watching a film for a few months is hardly a big sacrifice.
This is what should constantly be echoed and remembered throughout all of this.
Lives have been lost, families destroyed, businesses permanently shuttered; if the worst you're experiencing is an anticipated film being delayed, you'll be fine. I've seen rhetoric akin to "I will not survive NTTD being delayed again" on here and it makes me cringe.
FYI, my dear boy, I'm vaccinated. I do not, and will not, deny that covid exists. Besides, if you for one time would actually read my posts you'd be seeing things more clearly.
It's not about the movie, it's been delayed so many times, it's about the fact that this virus has a very low mortality rate. That's all I'm going to say.
Bars & restaurants were closed here while they were responsible for almost no contaminations. And yes, I have friends who got covid. Three. One was very ill and even she literally said that nothing should be closed because of her having something that gave her the same symptoms as the flu, which she gets every year.
About a possible delay: as long as they release it in theaters, it's ok.
Btw, I'm going to stop whining now, this isn't even the right thread.
‘Dear boy’? Drop the attitude please. I read your post and you said ‘so-called pandemic’, if you’re claiming it doesn’t say that then here’s a handy reminder:
I’m not interested in weird attempts to start arguments. As I said, this isn’t the place for conspiracy theories, nor pointless arguments. ‘Dear boy’.
My reply wasn't in regards to you, more so the fact that I've seen sentiment from others here equating a delayed, anticipated film with something they cannot survive...in a pandemic, of all things. It's quite extreme and bizarre.
On another more cheery note: 49 more days.
We don't know the mortality rate of the Delta variant. But it appears to be worse. Nevertheless, many people (too many) require extensive medical care in order to survive. And that medical care is neither cheap nor plentiful. So...
Plus, I thought on one of the James bond and Friends podcasts they said the film was fully paid for but recently saw somewhere there is interest on a loan they have to pay for every week
F&F9 made $663 mio until now, but will end up north of $700 mio, I assume.
($204 million came from China. So without China F&F9 will only make about $500 million in the end)
NTTD will not make $204 million in China as Bond is not as popular there.
NTTD will be lucky to cross the $450 million mark, imo…
Just for the record F&F 7-8 made both more than Skyfall, the highest grossing 007 film.
F9 without China made $459 million so far and back then worldwide the pandemic was more under control, with no Delta variant lockdowns and less restrictions. Ah and right now even local films are delayed in China, so there’s a pretty good chance NTTD won’t even have a Chinese release.
This is such a great post, and I agree with every word. Every time I get bummed about the long wait for NTTD, I remind myself that, in the bigger picture - which involves people I know who have died - a delayed Bond movie is the very definition of a "first world problem."
Eon has stated they will only release it if it can debut in theaters everywhere at the same time. If it comes out everywhere but China and Australia, there will be pirated copies all over the internet.
If large swaths of China and Australia remain closed which seems likely, they will delay it again.
Claims to have "sources" and inside info saying NTTD will release on time.
It's not in their hands.
In China the party decides when and if it gets released.
Spectre was released in China on Nov. 13 2015, 18 days later than in the UK.
Skyfall was released in China on Jan 21, 2013, 3 months later than in the UK.
So when they said "everywhere at the same time", they did not mean China, because even EON (or MGM or Universal) does not have the power to decide on a date over there.
Cool thank you for clarifying.
We love to see it!
I think there was always concern about public backlash and lawsuits. But yesterday, the very conservative-leaning SCOTUS declined to take up a suit against Indiana University's vaccine mandate. That's a green light.
