    Some big key points from the jam packed feature, which also has interviews with a whole host of Bond DoPs past and present:

    - Cary hired Linus off the back of First Man
    - BB and MGW shoot down spinoff ideas with the interview directly suggesting Nomi...again. 'our focus has been on making one Bond film and we have not planned...'
    - Both Cary and Linus were adamant to shoot it on film, digital 'wasn't an option'
    - Don't expect irritating aspect ratio changes as they wanted to avoid that by having entire sequences in IMAX. eg, the entire pre titles will be in 1.43:1, then going into 2.40 after the opening credits
    - 5-perf 65mm was also used for the dialogue scenes within the IMAX sequences
    - Linus was directly inspired by Spielberg's ET in choices of lenses to achieve particular effects such as flares

    This is fascinating. Glad to hear the spin-off nonsense is exactly that.

    Really odd choice to have ET as a creative influence in any way but I dig it!

    @mtm and @CraigMooreOHMSS Scroll up a bit and download the full article I posted at midnight

    Thank you, @Contraband

    I read somewhere that the Cuba scenes were originally supposed to be shot in Jamaica. Is that correct?

    They shot in Port Antonio's harbour, dressed as a Cuba port, with a massive mural painting of Castro and the revolution. That fishing boat that explodes on open water can be seen right in front that pier.

    Awesome photos yeah: thanks Contraband.

    I wonder if with the delay they might actually get some IMAX prints made? I think the IMAX cinemas were showing digital only.

    Seems madness they just built that set for this movie. Would have thought Pinewood might want to keep it for future productions.

    I would really really hope so, only thing at this point is Universal and MGM willing to chip in money wise.

    But now with the Science Museum IMAX in London reopening with the requisite laser projection for the intended 1.43:1 presentation, thereby dethroning the BFI as the UK flagship, there wouldn't be as much of a necessity (BFI was the sole flagship venue that didn't have laser)...Nolan is a purist and lover of the format to the point of personally, from my understanding, chipping in to make prints happen for his films.

    How many films are set in Cuba? :) It's like when they built St Petersburg for GoldenEye, or even the street scenes in TND.

    They had to shoot some at Pinewood due to Craigs injury.

    Regarding the pre-title sequence :
    the opening sequence is set in Norway, so Matera follows later

    It is but I think they're kinda mistaken there, since the Matera stuff is also IMAX

    James Bond is confronted by '2020 women' in the new film after harassing them in the workplace, one of the stars has said.
    The womanising character's behaviour towards his female colleagues is questioned in the #MeToo age, Lashana Lynch, who plays new spy Nomi said.
    Saying she would feel "uncomfortable" playing a "Bond Girl", the star explained that No Time To Die has updated the franchise's view towards women for a more equal age.
    Ms Lynch told the Sunday Times magazine: "I was more concerned as to how Nomi holds her own in a male-dominated space. And it's exciting to see Bond try to be his normal self among women of a 2020 mindset.
    "The reaction to him is what's important. You see how women like Nomi have to deal with men like him in the workplace."
    The actor added that her character could be seen as more senior than Bond in the new film as her methods are "more up-to-date".
    She said: "Bond's been gone a long time and now here comes this new agent who is hungry. Yes, you could say she thinks she is more capable of getting the job done in 2020, since her methods are up to date."
    Last year, there were rumours that Nomi would be the new 007, taking the title from her older colleague.
    When asked if she saw the rumours, she said: "I did, I'm really glad that conversation's happening. Because black women have very rarely in cinema been given the opportunity to be in power, where they're able to be the example."
    Daniel Craig this weekend insisted that the delayed No Time To Die will be his final Bond film, meaning a replacement will have to be found soon.
    Craig had been set to appear in his fifth Bond movie next month, but its release was pushed back to November due to the global spread ofcoronavirus.
    While it had been widely believed a new actor would take over following No Time To Die, recent reports suggested Craig was contemplating staying on.
    However, he used his hosting gig on Saturday Night Live to confirm it would be his final 007 film."

    Does anyone know how this will be presented in all the non-imax theaters? Will the pts be less wide, or will it be equally wide, but cropped on top and/or bottom? I can´t remember how it was with BB.

    Equally wide, cropped top and bottom. Applies to all the IMAX sequences (PTS, Cuba, something in 3rd act too)

    Matera will also be part of the PTS... following the opening by the frozen lake. The song comes after that. Obviously makes sense since both are set in the past, both are entirely shot in IMAX and the song directly refers stuff happening in Matera.

    Times have changed but the it's up to Bond to give as good as he gets as society and tech changes.

    Glad to know it will have a more consistent aspect ratio when IMAX sequences play out, like how it was done with GHOST PROTOCOL, as opposed to how Nolan did it with his films where it was just a mix of different ratios.

    Sony has announced that Bloodshot will be released on digital media on March 24th, 11 days after the film was released in theaters nationwide.

    It seems ike the film industry is about to radically change how movies are released.

    Will they release a film that we actually want to watch?

    I respect Lynch and respect the MeToo movement, but...wtf is she talking about? Has she even watched CR or QoS or SF or SP?

    Here is a rundown of his only "questionable" moments toward colleagues:

    CR:
    1. Bond breaks into M.s house. Bad but not an example of misogyny.
    2. Bond tells Vesper she's a "bloody idiot." Oooooo. Bad? Maybe. But Vesper is the one who demonstrates lack of respect toward Bond throughout much of the film. (The shower scene is not indicatiove of a man who hates women.)

    QoS:
    1. Bond defies M (what else is new?)
    2. Bond seduces Fields. OK. Maybe? But Fields was sent (in a trenchcoat, and theroretically nothing on underneath) to seduce him. MI6 used her, not Bond.

    SF:
    1. Again Bond breaks into M's house.
    2. Bond flirts with Moneypenny. But actually: it is the other way around.

    SP
    1. Bond asks Moneypenny to be his mole. Not bad. Actually, this is a sign that he trusts her.

    That's it. Am I missing anything????

    What on earth makes you think this is true? This is definitely you writing something of your own into the film; the film itself does nothing to support this.

    I agree with you though, this era has been better than previous with regards to its treatment of women.

    Although to be honest when I'm watching in IMAX I almost never notice the ratio change because the screen is so big that the top and bottom are almost out of my peripheral vision! :D

    So are we complaining that people are saying Bond is a misogynist now? I can't keep up with the list of things apparently wrong with Lashana Lynch, which for some reason to have grown since fans saw her face ;)

    I tend to watch the Craig films and although Bond's obviously moved with the time, he still has a certain attitude to women (such as approaching them in the shower!) which doesn't actually ring untrue with the idea of him treating female colleagues in a dubious way. He shagged one and tried it on with Moneypenny when she came over to shave him. The only other one was M, and he thought she was his mum! :D Out of three, that's not a normal HR file he has there!
    :D
    I'm not sure I'd say Vesper is his colleague entirely, but hey look: he shags her too :D

    I respect Lynch and respect the MeToo movement, but...wtf is she talking about? Has she even watched CR or QoS or SF or SP?

    Here is a rundown of his only "questionable" moments toward colleagues:

    CR:
    1. Bond breaks into M.s house. Bad but not an example of misogyny.
    2. Bond tells Vesper she's a "bloody idiot." Oooooo. Bad? Maybe. But Vesper is the one who demonstrates lack of respect toward Bond throughout much of the film. (The shower scene is not indicatiove of a man who hates women.)

    QoS:
    1. Bond defies M (what else is new?)
    2. Bond seduces Fields. OK. Maybe? But Fields was sent (in a trenchcoat, and theroretically nothing on underneath) to seduce him. MI6 used her, not Bond.

    SF:
    1. Again Bond breaks into M's house.
    2. Bond flirts with Moneypenny. But actually: it is the other way around.

    SP
    1. Bond asks Moneypenny to be his mole. Not bad. Actually, this is a sign that he trusts her.

    That's it. Am I missing anything????

    What on earth makes you think this is true? This is definitely you writing something of your own into the film; the film itself does nothing to support this.

    I agree with you though, this era has been better than previous with regards to its treatment of women.

    I am pretty certain that her plan is to sleep with Bond to convince him to go back to London. Consider the following clues:


    1. Fields shows up to put Bond back on the first plane to London. But it doesn't leave until the next morning.
    2. She is wearing a trenchcoat in South America. Think about that one. LOL. There is no indication from anyone else's attire at the airport that the weather has been unpleasant. Add to this: Bolivia is in the middle of a dought. The taxi cab driver even complains that it either rains too much or not enough...this is a "not enough" period. Make no mistake: the trechcoat is "theoretically" being worn for reasons that have nothing to do with rain.
    3. When she says "My orders are to turn you around..." She looks right as Bond's crotch.
    4. Where is Fields taking Bond? To a HOTEL! Why? If she is from the consulate, one would think she'd take Bond to the embassy to hold him until morning. Nope. Instead, she takes him to a hotel where she has a reservation. Hmmm.
    5. When Bond gets the hotel room at The Andrean, it is clear that he and Fields are staying together: she enters first, as though this is "expected."

    What Fields did not anticipate is Bond turning the tables on her.

    "James Bond is confronted by '2020 women' in new film after harassing them in the workplace, says star
    There were rumours last year that a woman would be the new 007

    James Bond is confronted by '2020 women' in the new film after harassing them in the workplace, one of the stars has said.
    The womanising character's behaviour towards his female colleagues is questioned in the #MeToo age, Lashana Lynch, who plays new spy Nomi said.
    Saying she would feel "uncomfortable" playing a "Bond Girl", the star explained that No Time To Die has updated the franchise's view towards women for a more equal age.
    Ms Lynch told the Sunday Times magazine: "I was more concerned as to how Nomi holds her own in a male-dominated space. And it's exciting to see Bond try to be his normal self among women of a 2020 mindset.
    "The reaction to him is what's important. You see how women like Nomi have to deal with men like him in the workplace."
    The actor added that her character could be seen as more senior than Bond in the new film as her methods are "more up-to-date".
    She said: "Bond's been gone a long time and now here comes this new agent who is hungry. Yes, you could say she thinks she is more capable of getting the job done in 2020, since her methods are up to date."

    Last year, there were rumours that Nomi would be the new 007, taking the title from her older colleague.
    When asked if she saw the rumours, she said: "I did, I'm really glad that conversation's happening. Because black women have very rarely in cinema been given the opportunity to be in power, where they're able to be the example."
    Daniel Craig this weekend insisted that the delayed No Time To Die will be his final Bond film, meaning a replacement will have to be found soon.
    Craig had been set to appear in his fifth Bond movie next month, but its release was pushed back to November due to the global spread ofcoronavirus.
    While it had been widely believed a new actor would take over following No Time To Die, recent reports suggested Craig was contemplating staying on.
    However, he used his hosting gig on Saturday Night Live to confirm it would be his final 007 film."

    I mean, it's a theory, and I do like to see readings which add a bit more to a film (I rather like the idea that Bond is a Russian double agent in FYEO for example! :D ) but I don't really think you can criticise Lashana Lynch for not sharing your rather unique analysis of that character, do you?
  • Sony has announced that Bloodshot will be released on digital media on March 24th, 11 days after the film was released in theaters nationwide.

    It seems ike the film industry is about to radically change how movies are released.

    Will they release a film that we actually want to watch?

    Yeah, Bloodshot has already pretty much cratered at the box office, and even if it hadn't, it only cost about $45 million. Roughly $205 million less than NTTD.

    Maybe Lynch's Nomi could well turn out to be an electrifying character....maybe she needs to talk less & let November speak for itself...so she doesn't get premature dislike.
