-SF has got some serious competition for most beautiful Bond film. Every shot in this trailer was truly stunning. The collection of locations is as diverse and enjoyable as one could hope for.
-Felix back as we knew is so awesome. I am worried his role will be very brief, but holding out hope he gets some awesome content.
-Madeleine is NOT the next Tracy, or even Vesper for that matter. Clearly they’re giving her an all-new direction and it’s possible she may live through the entire film. I think she has complicated secrets, but she didn’t really “betray” Bond the way he thinks. This is going to be interesting...
-I hope Paloma’s role is substantial. Ana de Armas is dream casting as a Bond girl and she looks as wonderful as I was hoping for.
-Nomi may be 007. I felt the trailer was edited in a way to avoid this giveaway, but I do suspect she indeed has Bond’s old number. Seems they will be more enemies than friends, since she is MI6 and Bond will be working off the grid. The trailer made me more interested in her character so that’s good.
-Blofeld is back, and I’m ok with this despite not liking him in SP. I’m glad Waltz will have one more chance with this character and I’m confident his scenes will be good, however major or minor a player he is this time.
-Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw seem likely to have more minor roles than SF + SP this time around based on the amount of footage which is fine by me. I like them, but Moneypenny and Q don’t need tons of screentime - just a couple great moments. I suspect Ralph Fiennes also will have a bit less this time, but I’m looking forward to his M.
-The gunbarrel shot at the end was cool, but I’m still hoping we get a traditional gunbarrel in the film.
-Daniel Craig looks like he is giving 110% this last time as Bond. You could see a lot of emotion in him this time.
-Safin is going to be an instant classic Bond villain. I’m confident Malek will crush it, and the character looks intense and intriguing.
-An SP sequel is the last thing I wanted going into Craig’s final film. However, based on what I saw, I couldn’t be more excited about it. They definitely want to make this about completing Craig’s Bond arc, and if they’ve found a good way to do it, then I’m all in on it. I’ve always defended standalone Bond as the superior approach, and it probably still will be, but I have an unshakable, optimistic feeling they will pull off something epic and satisfying as a “series finale” type deal for Craig. The trailer had a good balance of feeling finale-ish while not pushing in your face that it’s Craig’s last one.
-Still very much hoping for a YOLT novel-esque ending for Craig’s Bond. I want to see him strangle Blofeld or Safin to death with his bare hands, and the amnesiac/beginning to recover ending could be done beautifully. This is as good a time as any to tackle that superb Fleming content.
Overall, I’m very excited and believe this film has a lot going for it. However, there are still a couple concerns I have such as the plot being too messy/having too many elements, but we will see when it all plays out in April.
Good points. I think Felix and Paloma will unfortunately have fairly small roles but they'll be memorable scenes. I'm pleased M, Q and Moneypenny will probably have less screentime and be London based this time around.
It definitely appears to me that DC is giving it 110% too. It may be controversial but I didn't get that feeling as much in SP. Maybe that was down to the script. Either way, the sharpness and intensity seems to have been raised with this film.
2) Is this the same boat from Casino?
3) The items on the desk. Dang this place is sweet.
4) The Books
5) Bond's motorcycle. Triumph again?
6) Machine gun. He's used H&K in the past.
7) Glass and the gun. Is it a harpoon?
- The bulk of the story (presumably everything post-Matera) takes place five years after the events of SP
- Paloma is a CIA agent
YESSSS Paloma CIA!
Personal stand outs are the colour grade, the lighting design, waltz back to hopefully give a little more depth to his character, set design - wow and cinematography
I do find Felix and dans delivery a little wooden, but it probably won’t be the same in the film anyway
I want a direct continuation of spectre largely because I thought that was nearly a good film let down by a poor third act. More than happy if characters and set ups in that are enhanced.
Music - it’s just your generic bond trailer music so not much to go on there
I like the “the one that works” line and the delivery.
Matera and Jamaica looks stunning. (That boat!! Flying full red ensign too)
The ones already posted are also 1080p, so same resolution, but the one from Apple has higher bitrate.
What looks good:
-visuals, as everyone else has pointed out, look great
-I practically cheered when Felix showed up. About bloody time!
-Craig looks excellent here. He really, really does.
-There's just a different tone here. It's hard to put my finger on exactly what, but it feels different and feels good.
-There are a lot of moving parts here. And a lot of globetrotting. I hope all that plot fits!
-If you didn't want another "personal" mission. . . well, sorry.
I do worry that they've tipped their hand quite a lot here. After a single trailer (and almost nothing else, mind you) we know that
-Felix and Blofeld are back
-Nomi is a double-O
-Paloma can handle herself
-Malek is the villain, we've seen him, and heard him
-Bond and Madeline are at odds about her past and possible 'betrayal'
-And we've seen a few of the big stunt setpieces.
I hope they haven't shot their bolt on this one!
An establishing shot reveals a prison complex in London which we are to assume is where Blofeld is being held, yet his case file tells us he is being detained in HM Prison Wakefield, aka the "Monster Mansion." Weren't there rumours of filming in Yorkshire or am I imagining that?
If anyone hasn't read this yet, I highly recommend it. Everything Fukunaga says seems absolutely spot-on.
Yes. Calvin on YouTube pointed out that that makes the 'stepbrothers' angle even more tricky now, too. So was Bond 2 years old when Blofeld was, say, 28?
Yeah good spot mate, I noticed the Japanese influence too. I wonder if there is a chance we will see a modern take on the garden of death perhaps?
The cinematography and the rich colours is one of my favourite things about this trailer, well that and Felix coming back and called James, brother. So cool
I also agree with those that:
Yeah I think it’s very funny the way Craig delivers it.
I just want to know if Bond will press that ‘FLAME’ button on the DB5 :)
And as one of the few idiots who actually likes the continuity thing here, what he’s saying about being faithful to that is music to my ears,
As someone who hates SPECTRE I'm now super excited to see where the threads of it lead off in this.
That trailer shows loads but doesn't tell you much, a real tease.
I imagine a final trailer will get into the plot and specifics more but we have another few more months before that arrives.
Count me in as one of those idiots too, friend. Which is why I was disappointed at Danny Boyle planning to throw it all away supposedly.
May have been the same interview or another one but Cary said his goal was to think of the hardest things to put the characters through, rather than just doing new stunts etc. He made a real point that the action MUST serve the drama and characters. I love where the man's head is at.
Visually it looks stunning, plenty of action. Craig looks fantastic.
Gives us plenty to look at and speculate over, yet the story and plot are still a mystery.
Lead cast all look wonderful. If the finished film is as good as this trailer, then we're in for a treat.
Such a babe....
Madeleine and Blofeld are still eh to me, to be honest. But everyone else looks on point. Safin is obviously a classical Bond villain. Lynch looks fantastic.
Also, I paused it at the shot of Safin looking over the frozen lake and it's definitely the girl under the ice, you can see her brightly colored coat. This means that whatever underwater stunt Bond does is not that. Maybe he crashes the SUV seen driving through the water evading the helicopter and ends up in a deeper part.
By far the most confusing part of the trailer is Safin in the same white jacket looking through the glass at Q's house or wherever that is. What the heck is going on there?
