  • Bond in disguise.
  • For Bond 24 I'd like to see:
    - GB at beginning
    - Connery style M briefing close to start with Moneypenny banter
    - Bond in USA, working with Felix, portrayed by Wright
    - Quantum returning as 21st century Specter
    - the character birth of Blofeld, (see how he gets his scar, by Bond perhaps)
    - Bond in a Royal Navy uniform
    - visit to a snowy place, perhaps for the climax
    - big, lavish sets for the villains secret layer
    - Bond bedding at least two women, one a fem-fatial and the other an ally
    - some charm and sexyness like there was in the films from the 60's
    - a big climax involving a team of commandos which Bond helps lead

    Just wanted this to appear on the new page :P

    God I hope that Moneypenny spoiler isn't what I think it is. Anyway, I want....

    I want a big battle scene at the end

    Rush doing the theme song

    Gunbarrel at the start

    Sam Mendes or Chris Nolan or Edgar Wright directing

    Australia, Brazil and Ireland as locations

    Christopher Eccleston as the villian (maybe a rebooted Blofeld?)

    NO Quantum

    Felix coming back

    Moneypenny

    A new M

    M not being used as a big part of the film anymore

    Some cool new gadgets

    A new car (Jag, Lotus or Bentley.

    Also a better more in depth site Casino Royale's bond site is gorgeous Quantum and Skyfall's websites are so bland I barely visited them I STILL go to Casino Royale's site.
  • Scuba diving action-! Daniel Craig has yet to do any kind of underwater action, and it's a Bond essential. It would be great to have a modern, brutal Craig-style fight underwater.

    And the same goes for a ski chase. You're not 007 until you've been chased by gun-toting thugs across the snow.
  • 1. Gunbarrel opening.
    2. Outlandish stunt for an opening sequence.
    3. The ever so lovely girls in the titles.
    4. Bond-Moneypenny flirting/banter
    5. M only being used to give Bond his assignment.
    6. A larger role for Felix Leiter, once again working with Bond.
    7. Ben Whishaw as Q making outlandish gadgets.
    8. "Bond, James Bond" and "Shaken, Not Stirred"
    9. Underwater fight
    10. Skiing fight
    11. Sam Mendes returns as director
    12. Crazy villain with physical setback bent on world domination
    13. Scary looking henchman
    14. Bond beds at least 2 women, and will be with one of them at the end.
    15. Navel uniform, Bond is a commander.
    16. Fleming-based title
    17. Bond 's life at home (May Maxwell?)

    Bond films are never particularly politically relevent, at least not to the extent that Fleming's novels were...even during the Cold War, Russia was hardly ever the main antagonist in the story (the only one I can think of is FYEO).

    What I want to see is a friggin' GB at the start already. This is an iconic image tied with James Bond and has been at the very start in 90+% of the films. There is simply no better way to start a movie than being cognizant that it is a James Bond movie. Also, Craig gambling for fun, verbal sparring with the villain, and a male M. I like Dench and all, but I want the crusty Admiral back.

    Apparently there have been quite a few SF cast members that have signed on for 'Bond 24':

    Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, and Ralph Fiennes.

    A Bondmovie in Brazil would be nice too.

    Yes, she is. And she has African heritage according to the official Moneypenny diaries, , so not a big deal for me

    Nolan with Deakins woudl be... just awesome...
  • White DJ
    A skiing sequence
    A tropical, underwater sequence
    Wood-pannelled M's office
    More of Quantum, if they can write something good (perhaps even in a PTS that was unrelated to the rest of the film)
    One big stunt that is done 'for real' that gets everyone talking and becomes iconic (e.g. the ski jump from TSWLM, or the jumps on the crane sequence in CR)
    Bond doing some real spying and figuring out clues
    Bond using technology he finds in his environment in clever and resourceful ways (a bit like Liam Neeson's character did in the first 'taken' film)

    - James D'Arcy as 007
    - Alice Braga as the primary Bond Girl
    - Tomer Sisley as the Villain
    - Scott Adkins as the Henchman
    - Helena Mattsson as the secondary Bond Girl
    - Ken Stott as M
    - Chris Barrie as Q
    - Natalie Dormer as Miss Moneypenny
    - Colin Ferguson as Felix Leiter
    - Gunbarrel, at the beginning, where it should be
    - Use of the Bond theme sprinkled throughout
    - Title track by Caro Emerald
    - An Alfa TZ-2 as Bonds personal car

    The tone would be a return to Bonds thriller roots, with one main standout action sequence. There'd be some use of gadgets, but not to the extent where they would detract from Bonds brain and physicality.

    AKA - Bond, MoneyPenny, Q and M - I'm intrigued as to how they explain Eve's transfiguration into a reimagined MoneyPenny - will Eve become codenamed MoneyPenny and take a desk job because she will be the Paymaster (moneypenny)for MI6 operations?

    - The GB at the beginning (because...)

    I don't want to see Jesper Christensen back after his stupid remarks. Misquoted or not.

    @ Librarian, he says Bond James Bond in SF, and I think the Martini is back too... The only time Craig hasn't said it was QOS so far.

    Hardy as the villain I like though he was the best thing about the Dark Knight Rises and I'm a batman fan

    I'd rather have Hardy as Bond.

    That would be nice too, but I'd love to see him as a charming, cool, but extremely dangerous bad guy.
  • Perhaps Hardy could be the new Blofeld, and the character could be re-imagined to be more like Carols the Jackal in the Bourne books rather than the film archetype of Donald Pleasance stroking a cat...

    No Why does Blofield need to come back?

    Look at what they've been doing since the re-boot with CR. They are re-inventing everything in the Bond universe. If what I hearing about SF is true,
    That by the films end we have Moneypenny sending Bond through leather-padded double doors to meet with Finnes as M
    then the series will be back to where it started and ideally prepared to move forward toward a more traditional Bond movie plots. Think about it, saying that Blofeld shouldn't return is like complaining that they brought back the Joker in the Batman series because, they've already done that. Blofeld is Bond's natural enemy and in my opinion, this re-boot era will not truly be complete until Blofeld is re-introduced to it in some way. What better place to do that than in Bond 24?

    John Logan way back said James bond should always fight Blofeld that was like a year ago

    Logan is wrong and Blofield just cant be reinvented and For what its worth i did complain about them reusing Joker as Batman has a plethora of villains to use.

    Didn't you like The Dark Knight though? I mean how could you not?

    Look, movies today are turning to the past to find iconic content. Comic books are perfect for this because their are so many iconic figures to use and plenty of plots to be formulated and meshed around them, but with Bond, all the old stories have already been done before and without making a direct re-make of a former movie, the only villain from the previous films that they can use is Blofeld. Logan was right because he understands the strength of the archetypal hero/villain rivalry in a story. Bond should always fight Blofeld, and with Logan penning Bond 24 on his own, I'm more confident than ever that Blofeld will be back in 2014.

    Oh I did But that doesn't mean i still think Killer Croc and Deadshot wouldn't of been much better

    No Blofield has been parodied to death there is no point in ever bringing him back


    though this will never happen I still love the Hildebrand Rarity and would love it as the title.


    Also

    Emma Stone for Bond girl she can act and is my future wife so please don't say anything bad about her lol
  • - Tom Hooper directing (he has even said he'd be interested in directing a Bond film)
    - Although I don't want it to be "personal", I want the story to have emotional depth while maintaining a rousing, epic feel much like the Dark Knight trilogy.
    - Daniel Day Lewis as the villain
    - Hayley Atwell & Rebecca Hall as the Bond girls
    - Back to a Casino Royale type hairstyle for Craig
    - Florence + The Machine theme
    - I recently became aware of the use of "numbers stations", a type of shortwave radio station characterized by their unusual broadcasts, which consist of spoken words, but mostly numbers, often created by artificially generated voices reading streams of numbers, words, letters, tunes or Morse code. They are transmitted in a wide variety of languages and the voices are usually female, although sometimes men's or children's voices are used. They have been used to communicate with spies deployed in the field and are actually still being used today, I'd love to see a plot that integrated this as it's such a retro, Cold War-esque system that is still utilized today. It would certainly mesh well with Skyfall's concept reintroducing the old with the new.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Blofeld... if done "modern" and nowhere near camp.

    And why not make him as he is in the novels?

    I would love to see if they could do this properly. A loving pastiche of the old movies.

    TSWLM showed that it's possible to make the almost perfect homage, while still keeping things feeling up to date and enjoyable.

    There is always the danger if they go down this route that the resulting film just feels like a tick box exercise, but I think enough time has passed for them to try and do something really 'old but new' with the series. I guess people will say that's exactly what they've done with SF, so I'll have to wait until I've seen it. But the list above (give or take a few items) would be great. Something along the lines of OHMSS perhaps, in terms of the action and locations.

    Does anyone else feel that they'll strip it down again for Bond 24?
  • edited October 2012 Posts: 845
    I think they need to be VERY careful with BOND 24, we could slip back into the Brosnan era without even knowing it. We need to continue within the constraints of a relatively grounded movie that prioritizes character development.

    Very good point.

    We're not going back to the Brosnan era because with DC in the lead role the films could never be that bad again. And now they've shown P+W the door the stories can never be that appalling either.

    I'd like to see them loosen up and have a lot more fun actually. I enjoy DC's performance but it's time to camp it up a bit. I think they've already done this with SF from what I've read and I'm very much looking forward to Bardem's villain.

    What people forget is that the seriousness, humour, action and glamour all sat alongside each other happily in the old classic movies. I think Mendes has really tried to capture that in SF. These ingredients are not mutually exclusive as some LTK fans insist. They are the foundations of Bond and the reason it has endured as long as it has.
  • The question is how much do you loosen up before you get too loose? It's a very slippery slope.
