The name's 25. Bond 25, or rather, it's NTTD.

    I would have preferred you without a title.

    Maybe Malek's character is, in fact, Madeleine's lost brother, one which her father had NO TIME for. His name is Mr. Die.

    Family issues, you know.
    OK, I just realized... Sam Mendes is not directing this one, neither is Lee Tamahori. :D

    Which would give it just as many layers as No Time to Die, which also can be interpreted multiple ways.

    Less interesting ones. The wordplay is also more contrived, since "die" gets shoved into "No time to lose," whereas "No" is simply prefaced to "Time to Kill." And "kill" is just slightly less shopworn than "die" as a title word. Neither title is great, but the actual one sounds more generic.
    Hardly.
    But if you add period signs KILL would be cooler than DIE.

    NO. TIME TO KILL.

    That only works if spoken by William Shatner.

    I like the title fine, even if it’s kind of ordinary. At least it’s not another goddamn one word title starting with S. Because of that, I’m relieved. They could’ve made the o’s in No and To and make it OO7 but decided not to I guess. Ah, whatever.

    I should post this link to very funny musings on the meaning of the title "NTTD" by Matt Miller, the "Culture" editor at Esquire magazine. Best bit:
    "Consider for a second: You Only Live Twice, Tomorrow Never Dies, Die Another Day, and No Time to Die. None of these films imply immortality as much as they hint to procrastinating when it comes to death. James Bond is finally forced to confront his own mortality, upon realizing he's been putting it off for nearly six decades."

    Eurgh.....



    This tweet basically confirms that NO TIME TO DIE is basically another way of saying TOMORROW NEVER DIES which is another way of saying DIE ANOTHER DAY.

    It doesn't though, does it.

    @Thunderball
    Quantum of Solace

    Quantum is a small amount of something, and solace means comfort

    No, I thought they were quite well thought out. Well done.

    filmstories.co.uk: "Exclusive: how MGM kept the No Time To Die title hidden"
    https://filmstories.co.uk/news/exclusive-how-mgm-kept-the-no-time-to-die-title-hidden/

    Interesting story - what I'm wondering is whether that proves the "A Reason To Die" leak to be false, or whether that title was also registered and the producers just were not sure which one to choose.

    Just because it's been used doesn't mean it's overused: it's barely anywhere at the moment. The Spectre logo was based on Gotham I believe: now there's an overused font :)
    And the NTTD is indeed, as cool as hell :)

    You can expect to see that font being used everywhere from now on though!

    Only the innermost circle of hell is cold. And it's uncomfortably cold.

    Does that mean King is Cerberus then? But he's missing two heads and looks more cute than demonic.
