    I wonder if we will see Bond smoke that cigar in Jamaica or whether that was just smoking off set?

    If I remember correctly, Craig quit smoking in order to prepare for the role in CR, so he's not a recreational smoker himself. So my instinct says that was for the film.

    But nowadays the censors can be fairly harsh on smoking in films, so I'm wondering if it might be toned down or even cut.

    Severine smoked on screen in Skyfall, so it shouldnt be too bigger deal.

    Yeah he had a cigar in DAD and it wasn’t mentioned in any bad press that I saw. A cigar is fine I’d say, but I have no issue at all with him not smoking cigarettes. As you mentioned Mallory, Severine smoked in SF and it actually worked to make her seem weaker and more nervous. Not only do I think Bond shouldn’t smoke cigarettes, but I think it wouldn’t actually work for the character any more: it no longer looks cool like it did in the 60s- it looks desperate. Cigars on the other hand are different: they’re more of an occasional luxury choice. Kind of the difference between drinking a can of Strongbow in the park and sipping Bollinger
    :D

    In the books Bond never trusted anyone who ever smoked cigars. So much for the Fleming influence.

    I don’t recall that at all, but he also thought homosexuals couldn’t whistle. Sometimes fidelity to the books doesn’t seem too essential.

    What does it means if one can whistle, but whistles badly and it takes some effort?

    A bad lover, no matter the sexuality.

    Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

    Yes. All of them. But only after the act. And it’s in smug self satisfaction....

    There might be a connection between the cigars thing and the whistling thing? ;)

    Craig mentioned this several years ago: no more smoking for Bond. As it turned out, Craig also quit, about the time he finished QoS, I believe.

    Your wife would not be a fan of cigars except on on the odd anniversary, in that case @peter ;)

    Let's face it, whistling like Lauren Bacall tells Bogie is all that really matters. ;)

    One thing is for certain, one who whistles while smoking a cigar is somewhat of a freak of nature, a true Darwinian champion.

    :-D

    Happy new year folks. Let it be a true Bond year.

  • I will naturally never know this for sure, and I realize we often believe what we're meant to believe, but it really seems like NTTD was a fun film to have worked on. All along, I've had the impression that Cary created an enjoyable and collaborative environment that made people enthusiastic to be a part of. If this is true, I hope it reflects in the final product.

    I believe it will. Everyone had a blast making DAD, and that reflected in the final product.

    "Bond isn’t programmed for a tranquil life in retirement. The need for action runs deep," says director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Rami Malek brings "depth, intelligence and a spine-shivering stillness" as the newest new Bond villain Safin, and Lashana Lynch is a "young, athletically precise and ambitious" double-0 agent named Nomi. While a rivalry exists between her and Bond, "we see their relationship become closer, and come to understand how new generations respect but also need to outdo their predecessors."

    Must confess, I always get excited when I see @antovolk has posted....

    Also sounds like CJF is describing 'accidie'

    "and come to understand how new generations respect but also need to outdo their predecessors."
    That sounds a bit un-intelligent. How about learning from those with more experience, in order to be the best they can? What reason is there supposed to be to outdo any predecessor? If it has to be like this it should at least say, 'repect their predecessors and struggle with their own up-and-comer ego.'
