The action seems to be very character driven in this movie as we can see in the trailer, where Bond and Swann are arguing DURING the DB5 car chase if all the action scenes are intense emotionally and physically like this it could be really cool.
Every glitch becomes a horror show, every cast member brings baggage and doubt, every delay means the production team is screwing up, EON made bad decisions, the director is a hack/genius in his own mind only/ going in the wrong direction, and where is the damn trailer?????????????? OMG they are screwing up the marketing, too. Nothing is going well! Is Daniel in shape? He is INJURED?! Are you kidding me? This film will come out in 2022. :( Arghh! Is his hair too short? Are the suits too tight? This cinematographer going to use a yellow or brown filter on everything? Too many writers again! That means the script is doomed. We will get every cliche and nod to former films shoved down our throats. They are remaking OHMSS! They are remaking Dr. No!
They are remaking LALD and LTK and QOS, all rolled into one! This film is destined to be crap, with no decent on set photos or videos. EON does not know how to communicate, etc etc ETC. for months on end, I swear.
But now ... Hell yeah, it's going to be a fine Bond film, with a fantastic new Bond director, an interesting script, stunningly filmed, and EON sure is pulling this off like a diamond. Like they are experienced with Bond films or something. ;)
I'm enjoying everything I'm seeing. Happy I skipped a lot of the angst and speculation for the last 6 months.
This film is going to be epic, I tell ya. "Some people" will not return and say they were wrong. "Some people" just want the world to burn ;) And it won't. Not in that sense anyway.
Campbell is too old and is a has-been. Not gonna happen.
Agreed. Suppose this is not the place to discuss Bond26, but I'd very much like someone like Villeneuve to do the next one. But I'll leave that decision on the very capable hands of the EON family.
I agreed that it was probably not gonna happen. Really didn't want to call him a has-been, or even too old. I'm from a country where the oldest most known director lived to be 106, and he directed till the end.
To be honest, I think he's got another one in him. Campbell is an extremely energetic and fit 76 year old. I know it's doubtful, but Never say Never. ;)
I will say that the movie still looks like a classic Bond romp despite that element, and definitely looks more fun and colorful than Spectre, so I'll continue to be excited over the new characters and the action.
He is 77. Scorsese is 78, Ridley Scott who has several projects coming is 83 and Clint Eastwood who has a new movie coming out next month is 89.
The only reason why Campbell might not come back if asked is because he wouldn't want to. He's two for two with Bond, and I'm sure Eon will remember that.
Not because of his age or someone thinking he's a "has been".
Hmm, many things to be worried from this especially Bond not returning to MI6....that's how SP ended and I was forced...probably it won't be forced this time but having that happen back-to-back...
I guess not having lots of expectations for NTTD would be the best for me
Please note, some points in that post don’t accurately reflect the tone of the actual statements made in the magazine. Best to read it yourself.
@Minion what specifically?
He’d likely be 80 years old by the time they make the next one! :)
So are the Craig films. In Spectre did he just sit around talking about his feelings or did he crash a plane into a bunch of Land Rovers? Did he spend the whole thing talking to a psychotherapist or did he kick a bad guy out of a helicopter?
The journalist says it, but will it happen?
Does DC really want a reboot or does the magazine says he wants? or is it a joke from Daniel?
You didn't have any expectations for it anyway, if I'm correct.
Can magazines write anything they want? Daniel may have said that.
Oh he might have said and if it ends with him quitting MI6 for good (maybe that's the meeting where he arrives with his Vantage), maybe they'll do just that. I think he meant it as a joke, but we'll see.
A side note:
The article also contains "the big ideas are". So again, based on speculation, which we have seen too much with this film.
Speaking to Empire in the upcoming world exclusive No Time To Die issue, on sale from Friday 27 December, Malek revealed the lesson he took from Freddie Mercury for the role. “If I went in there and tried to make a carbon copy of someone, what joy or fun would that be for anybody? I guess that may be a lesson I learned from Mr. Mercury. If it’s not original, then why bother?” he explains. “I’ve pocketed some things from some of my favourites. But I tried to every day imbue this character with something I thought made sense for the character, but might also at the same time be shocking and unnerving.”
The role saw Malek once again team up with his Bohemian Rhapsody dialogue coach William Conacher to figure out the right villainous voice. “I wanted to create something that we couldn’t quite peg from any particular part of the world,” he teases.
Days left until April 2, 2020: 100 days.
Why did everyone bash Spectre then? @mtm
For the record, SP isn't nearly as bad as its reputation. That said, two issues plague the film:
1. Foster brother angle
2. A third act that was a complete mess
Saddest part is that there were a lot of smart, talented people on this film and they couldn't get it straightened out.
Because the plot wasn’t great and the action left a bit to be desired in places, wasn’t it? Why did everyone love OHMSS?
