    A new article from Norwegian newspaper VG covering their visit to Pinewood last autumn.

    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:
    We are told that Malek first appear in the film’s opening sequence which takes place in Nittedal outside Oslo.
    - 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).
    The second car chase in the film takes place in Norway.
    - 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.
    Agent 007 and Paloma (Ana de Armas) are at a glamorous club in Havana. Bond is wearing a Tom Ford tux, while Paloma is wearing a navy blue silk dress and Chopard jewellery.

    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.

    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.

    Toyota yes but not the other car. That's a mystery since I have every norwegian news video. So they must have filmed it in Scotland and somehow kept it hidden from news media and bystanders. Even checked Max Earey's instagram, not a single picture.

    But since it's a quote from Courbold himself I don't see any reason to doubt it. Just perplexed and/or surprised.

    Time will tell...

    Update:

    @Torgeirtrap Now I know what's wrong. The article should say V8 Vantage, not V9. Major difference for the love of God.

    Very interesting. The Cuban night club sequence & the Norway chase sound/look amazing. I am beyond excited for this movie.

    It will be interesting to see what they'll look like. We have seen so very little from Norway yet.

    @Contraband Just a typo I did when translating, sorry! I'll DM you the entire article in a bit.
    _________


    Also from the same article; a bit on Q, Bond (and Nomi):
    Q has throughout the years provided Bond with a lot of high-tech gadgets, whether it's explosive pens, laser watches or advanced weapons. However, there have been few aids in recent films, but in «No Time To Die» the gadgets are back.

    Prop master Ben Wilkinson, who has previously worked on several of the Harry Potter films and The Gladiator, promises that.

    - «No Time To Die» has a significantly higher amount of gadgets than recent Bond films. I’m not exaggerating when I say that all scenes have some kind of gadget, Wilkinson says, who has also worked on «Skyfall» and «SPECTRE».

    Wilkinson takes us into a hangar full of props from the new movie. Some of the highlights are Bond’s new harpoon, a high-tech handcuff,a machine that injects «smart blood» into the veins of Bond and 00 agent Nomi (Lashana Lynch), bombs of all shapes and sizes, a quirky radar called "Qadar" (which Q gives to Bond), and, amazingly enough, a number of fake fish!

    - In one of the scenes, Bond is fishing. We had real fish available. But if the smell was too bad, we had these fake fish at hand. We ended up not using those fake fish.You have to the hat off to Daniel – he coped with many hours of fish smell!

    One of the props Wilkinson is most proud of is Q’s new lab.

    - As you'll remember from the movies, Q has his own laboratory where Bond is given all the gadgets. This time Q is travelling and he must therefore bring a portable mini lab. This lab includes a wide range of tools and gadgets, the prop master says, and continues:

    - Look now, he says, pressing a button.

    A tray with a British tea set pops out of the mini lab!

    - It’s important for Q to enjoy good tea when he’s on a mission. After all, he is a Brit, smiles Wilkinson, who must be said to be the real life Q.

    Wow, this sounds like good fun. However:
    Please, get rid of the 'smart blood.' It was a useless flop the last time they trotted it out, and sounds too much like handwaving, science-ex-machina, plot-device nonsense.

    Also: I wouldn't say no to a free Valhalla. But it just doesn't look like a Bond car to me. For a villain or a sidekick or something, perhaps?

    Maybe they can do something more interesting with it this time.

    This car is so cool.

    It looks like every teenage boy's dream.....I hope they really haven't edited it out of the movie because I really want to see it in action.

    Just further to my comment about suspecting the November release is not happening. The uks science advisor has said today that social restrictions will be in place for at least the whole of 2020. Again happy to be proved wrong but a November release of NTTD is fanciful.

    I wonder whether cinema as we know it will return before a vaccine is found.

    Maybe Eon need to look at a plan B

    The vaccine issue is problematic as there is a high chance there won't be one. There is probably too much onus placed on it as the solution to lockdown.....the truth is a vaccine may not come about for years if at all. A vaccine won't get us out of lockdown.

    I know that a vaccine is being fast-tracked. However, even then the best case scenario is that it'll be widely available at the early or middle part of next year. That is very optimistic thinking. Realistically, it could be another 5 years if not more.

    A vaccine isn't going to be solution to get the economy going and open life up again. Therapeutics are probably the answer for now. However, the most probable answer is that we will simply need to get used to living with the virus. Which means life changing for good. Social distancing and personal hygiene awareness becoming the norm.

    In that respect, cinemas will need to change their operations for good.

    Also we mustn't forget how NTTD has the problem of how people will respond to the villain's plot as well as the virus itself so could this cause more problems with releasing the film if we do go into 2021 still dealing with it.

    I believe there were one or two movies that got buried in the wake of 9/11 because their plots featured terrorist attacks.

    Remember how Gangster Squad had to reshoot a major sequence because of the Aurora shooting? I think there were a couple of others that made slight adjustments too.

    That being said, I'd be fairly confident that Babs and co. would time it right and only make any adjustments if absolutely necessary.

    Yeah, It's likely from the Screentest. Since the Bedroom Scene from FRWL is the one EON likes using for James Bond auditions & Craig came with a longer hair, before he started filming as Bond. But wherever that Pic is from, till this day I would have liked it more....if EON left Craig's Hair a bit longer as James Bond. That Hair Comma is Cool....he even looks a bit like Dalton in that Pic.

    I have vague memories of it being difficult to find even at the time of release, and getting a pristine copy was quite the challenge. Luckily it now sits on my shelf along with all the others.

    I do wish they would do a more in depth making of book. Having these photo diary books are ncie and all but it would be good to see script ideas, concept art, story boards etc with more input from the technical teams.

    Actually, it was first published in the 'James Bond Archives' book from Taschen. Which I believe came out in 2012 and then re-published with new content in 2015.

    It's a bloody good book. Also, I believe it's quite cheap on amazon these days....

    Yep. This appears to be the case.

    Whenever cinemas re-open, Tenet will be there. Currently cinemas are hoping that date is mid-July.

    Essentially, cinemas (like every service industry) are suffering. As soon as they are given the sign by governments that it is safe to open they will. The opposite side of this equation are Hollywood studios.

    Cinemas want to screen new product to drive audiences in. However, they are dependent on Hollywood giving them those movies. Hollywood naturally has an inherent interest in delivering as theatre revenue is their biggest stream of income.

    The question then becomes: How does this work in practice?

    The answer may be that theatres commit to screening blockbusters to ensure audiences can see the movies they are excited about. This means films such as Mulan, Tenet, No Time to Die, Black Widow occupy all screens in any given cinema. This way social distancing can be adhered to. This impacts smaller films.

    The simple truth is that a vaccine is at least a year away in the best case scenario. There is even the high probability that a vaccine may never be produced.

    Therefore, we can't stay locked up forever. Once the rate of infection decreases, then we will have to return to civilisation. But life will be very difficult and social distancing/face masks/more awareness of personal hygiene will become the norm. In particular, service industries will be on life support.

    Yeah, with each passing day, it's looking increasingly likely that managing the Virus might be the order of the day....at least for the time being, until a vaccine is available. And Movies will be the due Escapism people need.

    It feels like we have been battling this virus for months already. Here in the U.S., our social distancing has been in place for only been about five weeks. Hard to believe. In many parts of the country, we're bending the curve alittle bit. If we stay on this path (stay at home, social distancing) for another 5-6 weeks, I am optimistic that we'll be in a good position for fall. But we need testing.

    Let's think positive.

    Here is the norwegian article (paywall) from VG (vg.no/rampelys/film/i/b5vw95/paa-innsiden-av-bond-innspilling-skurken-plottet-og-biljakt-i-norge) that @Torgeirtrap (thanks for the help) posted the other day lifting out some highlights. BTW: The journalist is Morten Steingrimsen, James Bond-Magasinet, Norway

    I have translated the article in full and only left out a few words about PWB from Babs. Nothing new there. Other then that I thought it had many more (minor) spoilers worth reading about then just Torgeirtraps highlights

    (Sorry if my translation isn't perfect)
