    Very cool! I noticed the official PG-13 rating is in the bottom left corner. Can anyone make out what it says?
    Rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and action, some disturbing images, brief strong language and some suggestive material.

    Nice - thank you! Whenever I tried to enlarge it, it wouldn't look clear enough. I suppose this'll be our second Bond film with an F-bomb dropped? :P

    Yeah impossible haha :D The rating is listed on the IMDb page.

    - and @NickTwentyTwo, they're from the articles that have been posted on the previous page :)

    As for this IMAX poster, I need a good quality version but it might be my favourite James Bond poster...

    Interesting to see they’ve used the NTTD logo in a colour and not just white.

    They really like that blue wall...

    I don't think I've seen a set be used in marketing as much as the set in Cuba :D

    I'm a little surprised and concerned about the 20-minute PTS confirmation. I was hoping for the PTS to just be a standard length scene at Norway at the beginning, but perhaps it will work out well in the movie. My guess is they just don't want to do a Bond-less PTS anymore.

    @FoxRox To me it makes sense to have Norway and Matera before the pre-title sequence as both sequences are set before the main bulk of the film. Makes more structurally sense.

    You open with a creepy atmospheric flashback, which leads us into some character development and full blown pre-titles action sequence. Throughout this, we learn of Madeleine's possible betrayal, which leads nicely into Daniel Kleinman's visuals along with Billie's beautiful song...

    ...and then we open in present-day, when the scientist is kidnapped. M calls on 007, before we go to Jamaica, where Bond has been. This gives us a break from Bond, letting the audience know it's been a while in some capacity. Then we'll introduce Nomi who is actually 007 after Bond meets Felix.

    This way it would make the pre-titles sequences quite the rollercoaster which would be great for Craig's last film.

    I'm still doubtful. That is a lot of story and action to cover in just 20 mins.

    Or they'll somehow make the Norway sequence last 20 minutes which I think is doubtful. I don't see that sequence alone exceeding Skyfall in its timing.

    And @jake24 I won't be surprised if they just hit the ground running with this one.

    Interesting, thanks. It is noticeably... better!
    Do we know who did the promo visual of him walking in front of the Aston V8?

    - We get to know the young Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux's character, journ. Note). She visits her mother in the cottage. There are some dramatic events that will affect her life, he says.(...) We also built the house in the English countryside. Léa Seydoux returns to the house when it is summer. 
    That's a huge (new) spoiler, for sure, confirming a lot of the previous speculation.
    So...Safin - probably Swann's halfbrother (son of Mr.White who bedded a woman in Morocco while staying at 'Le American') - kills her mother for reasons unknown while Madeleine is visiting. She tries to escape, falls through the ice, almost drowns, but is saved by him. And 20 years later this "secret" is back to haunt her?

    They appear to implement campaigns too; so they did some work in the Skyfall campaign but by adapting elements created by Empire to a local market.
    Does it say they created the NTTD image somewhere?

    Might be former designers then...a bit like with the trailers (who did QoS and Skyfall at Picture Production Company then spun off their own agency Chinagraph)

    Just noticed that now. Might be that Empire outsources some campaign work or something like that.

    Maybe, or designers that Empire collaborate with.

    Well I would guess it’s like most global marketing campaigns for anything: one agency comes up with the key design elements and strategy and then local agencies adapt it to suit their particular markets and formats.

    I must say, the image quality of Craig in Matera is noticeably poor compared to the text and logo.

    Yeah: that’s not going to print, is it? The logo and text are fine, as you say.

    Writer's Guild of America finalise NTTD screenplay credits:
    https://findawriter.wgaeast.org/project/1173236/no-time-to-die/
    fukunaga.jpg?fit=700%2C400&ssl=1

    I know a few others have been intrigued what the WGA arbitration process was going to decide. Well, now we have the final word.....the credits are:

    Story by: Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and Cary Joji Fukunaga
    Screenplay by: Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and Cary Joji Fukunaga and Phoebe Waller-Bridge


    So it seems that the following either confirmed or rumoured writers didn't get credit: Scott Z Burns, Paul Haggis, Danny Boyle or John Hodge.

    The credit is similar to SP's....also, Fukunaga is the first-ever director to get a writing credit on a Bond film.

    For some reason I would like to see Cary making a cameo, looking like that, as a junior professor in the upcoming Indiana Jones 5 (starts shooting this summer)

    Do we know the extent of Scott and Paul's work on the script? As for Boyle and Hodge, I'm not surprised, I think it's safe to say they're script was buried after they left. It may pop up some day. The actual credits make sense. Purvis and Wade's story with Cary's vision and Phoebe Waller-Bridge's additions with dialogue and female characters.

    My god the cinematography... This might be the second Bond film in Craig’s tenure (behind Skyfall) that leaves your breathless with every frame.
    There are a couple Matera shots that look slightly synthetic. I don't know if some of these shots are CGI-enhanced or if Sandgren is the best cinematographer to have graced a Bond film.

    I know what you mean, it has that slick and almost too good to be real look to it. But I’m gonna have to say Sandgren is just that great of a cinematographer.

    Also they’ve not photoshopped the stuntman’s boots out for the Drake’s shoes Bond wears in the film lol

    Im not aware of any reason to believe that she was hired just to do the female characters. She’s a very talented writer.

    Of course she was probably involved in everyone's dialogue. I don't thinks she'd change much about the plot, and I think she was even quoted in saying that the story was great and that she didn't touch that.
  • Also, Phoebe is the second female to ever get a screenwriting credit on a Bond.....hopefully she sticks around! A great talent indeed.

    Also, Lashana Lynch has been doing press today for the film. I guess the press tour has began...
