Yeah I know..
Not extremely related. Rami gives his personal opinion about other Bond villains
Omg his adorable! Also laughed crazily at his comment for "Zao"
There's a gofundme happening right now to raise the £600 million so some guy can just buy the film himself and distribute it before Christmas :)) hope it works out for him.
DC: Style Icon
It does! I love it.
It's also not a new idea. If I'm remembering correctly, earlier drafts of Die Another Day had Bond returning to find 'Gala Brand' (later renamed Miranda Frost) had the same subplot, she'd been given his 007 number while he was in North Korea. And the film was a spiritual journey of sorts with him trying to earn it back.
(I'd doubt that's the route NTTD takes, but it's still great to see such a promising narrative twist finally reach the screen.)
Didn't think it was released yet. Give me the link
No probs. It's not your fault. Only noticed something was wrong so better to be on the safe side
The last thing in the world I would like to see is fans with their fingers in the professional world of making and distributing Bond films. I do like the charity idea though.
I can't remember if I've heard that before or not. It would have been a perfectly decent thing to do but maybe it's a nice idea that would have been thrown away a bit considering all of the other stuff going on. I get the feeling this film will explore it slightly more, which is good.
There's no better way to illustrate the message that Bond has been replaced than by giving his number to a new person.
Yes and no, in that in the book Bond actually suggests himself that he takes over the dead agent's 007 designation because he thinks it will 'send a message' to all of the baddies that MI6 are relentless: you kill one and another appears in his place. It's not entirely convincing but kind of works.
The article touches upon where Safin may have got his scars in a similar type accident to Dr. No. Also makes some insinuating comments as to the plot of Safin.
“Once we got into Christoph Waltz/Blofeld territory, you can’t go small again,” director Cary Fukunaga said about Malek’s villain character. “We had to think bigger. It’s tricky because you don’t want to make a cliché supervillain, but you have to make someone that’s threatening not only to Bond and the people he loves but to the world at large.”
How do you go bigger than Blofeld? Well, one theory that seems to be making the rounds amongst Bond fans is that Malek’s character, Safin, is indeed a new version of the classic villain, Dr. No. When pressed about this possibility, Malek neither confirmed nor denied.
“Yes,” Malek said about the speculation. “That’s interesting. I’m not going to bite on that, but I do think it’s interesting. They’ll just have to wait and see.”
The reason for the Safin/Dr. No theory stems from the physical look of both characters. There’s no denying that Malek does resemble Joseph Wiseman from the 1962 Bond film, “Dr. No.” But not only that, the film presents a villain that has disfigured himself due to radiation, which is similar to the issues that face Safin in the new film. And if you want a deeper dive, you can venture into the Bond discussions had by fanboys and fangirls that dissect it even further.
Regardless of whether or not Safin is Dr. No, it’s clear that Daniel Craig’s final Bond film is going to feature a villain that is even bigger than Blofeld, who might be the most famous villain of them all. So, that should definitely pique the interest of 007 fans hoping for a memorable finale for Craig.
These two actors are without doubt irreplaceable to why these movies still continue to this day. Eon and MGM should give them this recognition at least IMHO. ^:)^ :-bd
