The response of someone whose argument is flatter than a witch’s tit.
I think "snowflake" isn't really warranted here.
On one hand, I don't have all that much sympathy for people making millions of dollars to do work that they love. If Cary tries to complain to some punters on lunch break at the factory or some knackered healthcare workers at an ICU, he won't get much traction.
But on some level I understand him, and I'm not sure why anyone thinks making a Bond movie would be fun, exactly. The pressure is insane, and you've got hundreds of millions riding on your shoulders. You have an army of 'fans' online who are impossible to please, and a lot of variables (from EON to MGM to COVID) beyond your control.
Yeah, expansion as in correction...like expanding Madeleine's role & making her a huge part of the narrative. Making Blofeld better & making SPECTRE more threatening....I won't mention Bond, Coz Craig has been Fantastic. Oh! and improving the Score with Zimmer at the Helm.
Yep... I really can't wait to hear Zimmer's work. After 2 (pretty solid) scores from the "safe bet" Arnold and Newman's combo a score with a total different new vibe is what the franchise desperately needs.
Wait for NTTD to steal this release date. Early October is a big release window after the first Venom, Boheiman Rhapsody and Joker. In fact, The Batman just nabbed October 2021.
If I was Eon, I'd move to this date and get out of Black Widow's way. But I imagine Christopher Nolan is eyeing it now for Tenet.
That reasoning doesn’t hold because the point of delaying to Nov is to get Bond back into its classic (25 years and counting) release window, take advantage of the mid-week holiday bump and push NTTD away from current events. October has proven to be a successful month in recent years but some have made the argument that Joker made a billion because NTTD and WW84 did not release in November of 2019. Moving NTTD to October would just cut its legs off in the middle of its run when BW debuts on Nov 6th. The current release schedule allows Bond to do that to BW.
In the UK, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre were all released in October.
But it wasn’t early October. Also, if they stagger the U.S. release by a week or two then that puts the opening even closer to BW. I think October is still a wobbly month to release movies in a normal year, let alone this year. Late November is a perfect release date for Bond; NTTD can take advantage of both Thanksgiving and Christmas, while BW will have been our nearly one and two months by the time those Holidays roll around.
These photoshoots are always so dumb.
And there's no Star Wars to compete with at that time.
Is this due to virus concerns in October or because they are unable to complete work on the film and have it ready?
IMDB lists it as in 'post-production'. But there is also the possibility that this film was supposed to release after Morbius, and that was already delayed from August 2020 to March 2021.
I wonder whether cinema as we know it will return before a vaccine is found.
Maybe Eon need to look at a plan B
Valhalla in Scotland
I have also been chatting with stuntman Alistair Whitton. He's the one riding the bike chasing Bond in Matera. Alistair took a bunch of pictures during production and will published them in due course since the stills might be revealing too much at this time.
Current industry consensus is yes it will, with restricted capacity and additional things to facilitate social distancing. Though the industry may be overoptimistic... Germany announced today they're aiming for cinemas to open no earlier than July 31.
Let’s hope so. Will seem peculiar to be in the company of strangers. I think I’m already becoming institutionalised!
There's little here that we don't know about already, but there are a few tidbits that might be of interest. Quotes from the article in spoiler tags:
- Malek plays Safin. His character is associated with Bond girl Madeleine Swann. He visits her in the cabin in Norway, and very dramatic things happens there, he says (Mark Tildesley).
- Bond is chased by the villains in muddy and steep terrain. The start of this sequence was filmed in Norway (on the Atlantic Road, journ. note). We had to shoot the rest in Scotland for practical reasons. In this sequence, Bond is actually driving two cars. A Toyota Land Cruiser LC90 and an Aston Martin V9 Vantage, which Bond last drove in The Living Daylights. - Chris Corbould.
Suddenly they spot the man they are looking for – Valdo Obruchev, played by Swede David Dencik, known from productions such as The Snowman, Chernobyl, and Quick. CIA colleague Felix Leiter sends Bond on assignment to Cuba to find a mysterious package.
It turns out that the package is a person, Tildesley explains about Denick's role. Bond and Paloma try to get hold of Obruchev's suitcase. At the same time, the other people in the premises starts shooting at our heroes. The mysterious man pulls out a gun and shoots out a rope that allows him to escape.
Very interesting. The Cuban night club sequence & the Norway chase sound/look amazing. I am beyond excited for this movie.
Regarding spoiler 2: Why haven't we seen that car in any of the BTS-footage? Damn well kept secret I must say
@Torgeirtrap Since you have access to the article, could you copy/paste and DM me. No need for translation
I believe we saw a video or two of it filming on the Atlantic Road.
