    Does anyone know where I can find dialogue only versions of the Spectre trailers? I found one for the teaser trailer but can't find any for the others.

    As I watched Skyfall with two friends of mine last night, two questions were arised.

    1) Why is M standing beside eight coffins if six officers were killed in the explosions (as reported by the news)?

    2) How did Silva survive after he swallowed his cyanide pill? Did he actually lie about swallowing it?

    1. I thought it obvious. Another succumbed to their injuries. That is pretty common in such attacks.

    2. He got burned up pretty bad. People survive all kinds of poisons.
  • This is a particularly dumb question.

    I always give a little chuckle when Elliot Carver says "exactly!" in an unusually wheezy voice at the CMNG tower. Was it intended to sound like that? It sounds humourously off.

    @Birdleson
    1. You're right, it just slipped my mind.
    2. Heh, that's what I tried to explain my friend but he said it's impossibile.

    I believe I've been looking for this for a long time now but in The Living Daylights, when Bond is smuggling Kara out of Czech in his Aston, there's a Jazz music playing on Bond's radio. Does anyone know what's the title of the piece? or does it even exist?
  • Has anyone got an explanation for why Sanchez isn't aware that Bond withdrew the money from the bank in LTK?

    Don't joke. That'll be P&W's next trick after stepbrothergate.

    Yes, best not to give them any ideas but even at that it's still more convincing than what they came up with in Spectre with Blofeld being his half-brother.

    As weak as it is, it's not an actual brother, not even a half brother. No blood relative. Like my mums best's friends daughter who calls my mum, Auntie.
    I don't like the link with Bond and Blofeld, it was cheap and unrequired. I can overlook such things, to avoid going insane. It happens a lot in movies.

    Sorry @Benny. You're quite right; I've not seen Spectre enough times yet!

    No I'm fair from right. It does annoy me that they can't come up with something else. I mean really. There need not be a connection at all. What does it accomplish?
    I can just turn a blind eye to such BS writing. It's not wrong to oppose it, or certainly want better for Bond 25. I sure hope we get it.

    Other people have mentioned this but that's missing the point somewhat. The nature of the relationship be it blood brothers, adopted brothers or just people that once spent a few weeks in the same ski lodge in the Alps is irrelevant; its the fact that there is a relationship at all that is objectionable.

    And you're right Draggers - Nena Blofeld appearing would be less shit than this misguided idea that somehow Babs and MGW inexplicably signed off on.

    I agree with you Wiz it is a polished turd. You can polish it as much as you like, but it's still a turd.
    I can turn a blind eye though. Drastically need new writing blood in the EON camp methinks.

    New writing and music blood

    New writing, music and directing blood.

    Who's next? Let's keep this going!

    New decision to continue to adapt more from the Continuation Novels? :D

    I don't see what harm would it bring to adapt from existing materials instead of creating something drastic that's lazy, uninspiring and forgettable. Many of Gardner's and Benson's novels have great plots. One just has to adapt them and make them better than what they are.

    Yes, I've been trying to find this as well. I tried Shazaming it, but got no results. Which leads me to believe that perhaps it was written for the film only. Anyone got ideas?

    I've come to that conclusion, too, much like that casino theme from The World Is Not Enough when Bond puts on the X-Ray sunglasses.

    And no, before anyone says anything, I'm not referring to the instrumental version of "Only Myself To Blame".

    Does anyone know what time of year a new Bond actor is usually announced? How long before they start shooting do we know the identity of the new 007? So let's say the next Bond film is November 2018, would we know who Bond is by September 2017 say? Any input is appreciated.

    Brosnan was announced on June 1994 and Craig on October 2005. Actually look at that - 11 yrs apart. Almost time again already, given it's 2016.

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves. We still don't even know whether Craig is returning or not .

    Relax, it's just a hypothetical.

    Craig's got one more in him at most and I think we can all agree he has been cagey, so no harm in speculating, given it has been 11 yrs coincidentally.

    That wasn't really a "relax" moment. Just stating the obvious.

    Well the good news is that there has never been a Bond film in a year ending in 0 so that rules out 2020 for Bond 25.
