    This office looks like it could fit straight into a Moneypenny home office in the films! Is that a fireplace turned bookshelf behind her chair?

    BEHIND THE BLOCKBUSTER: DESIGNING COSTUMES FOR HARRY POTTER AND JAMES BOND
    syfy.com/syfywire/behind-the-blockbuster-designing-costumes-for-harry-potter-and-james-bond

    You also worked on the James Bond franchise. What was it like designing for that iconic character?

    I was so lucky to start with Sam Mendes. We worked very closely. He took me in and it was just a question of trying to make a very correct Bond. Making him much less pompous.

    I gave him a very tight suit so he could move easily and we could see his body, that he was very flexible. The suits were so near the body, you could see his body moving. That was very important. They were more like a second skin.

    [For] the women, what they were wearing was sexy but was something we would all like to wear. They were very feminist, as well. I try to do my best to bring a lot of feminism in the sexuality of those ladies by giving them things we could wear ourselves. I don't mind a show-stopper dress, but it was something that they would have liked to wear and that they were not wearing because it was a man watching them.

    Second skin? Why not give him a body suit instead? Suits should compliment the body shape, not show every inch of it.

    Honestly, the suits looked so tight, I felt uncomfortable for DC just watching him moving about on screen.

    On the upside he wouldn't need to wear a compression bandage on his injuries, just pop a suit on and tallyho.

    That chunk of the article just makes no sense to me, how a suit is so tight that it makes one flexible. Surely it'd be the opposite, and as I've said for a while now, not the type of suits a secret agent should be rocking. That shot of him landing on the couch in SP, it looks like his buttons are ready to pop.

    What is so feminist about the ladies not wearing their dress because it was a man watching them? Especially in a spy flic the ladies should use their girl power to control the men.

    I guess the implication is that a woman wearing a dress for a man is a woman acting on behalf of another (and if they do anything for a man it lessens their female power and liberty or something). It's just some blabby creative fluff to make it all seem more important than it is, when in reality it just so happens that Naomi and Berenice look drop dead in their dresses and they fit in well with the casino set, so they were chosen.

    But every conversation we have about and with women these days has to be had in light of a post-MeToo world where people are pretending like women's rights, thoughts and consent didn't matter before 2017 and only now do we really have to be on our best behavior. Which is extremely disingenuous and darkly comedic. Women deserve far better than to be the center of another goddamn trend that dilutes the suffering of people who need support. Anyway...

    James Bond: Daniel Craig was ‘FREAKED OUT’ by Spectre’s record-breaking explosion
    https://express.co.uk/entertainment/films/990143/James-Bond-Special-Effects-Chris-Corbould-Daniel-Craig-Spectre-explosion-007-Elements

    However undertaking Spectre’s explosion of Blofeld’s Moroccan desert lair, which was actually three times bigger than what was captured on film, was a particular challenge due to its size, and something that Craig was a little nervous about getting his one shot at the scene right.

    Speaking at the opening of 007 ELEMENTS, a new Bond Cinematic Installation in Austria, Chris said: “Originally there was this great big underground lair and the computer guys kept showing concepts of this great big cavern opening up.

    “They showed us two or three versions of this concept and in the end Sam [Mendes, director] said, ‘I’m not buying this. It’s not Bond.

    “So I said to him, ‘Sam, I can do an explosion that will blow you away.’

    The Special Effects Supervisor continued: “[He agreed and] I knew what the whole layout of the baddie’s complex was, so I designed this whole series of explosions. Sam only shot it on three cameras, the temptation is to shoot it on fifteen.”

    “But he only used one, when Daniel comes up with Lea and it all goes off.

    “Funny thing about that is we used a fairly new technology that initiated all the explosives.

    “Normally you run a wire to each explosion, and bare in mind there were 200 explosions in there, but we used this new technology that uses a computerised initiation.

    “So each detonator you programme it. The good side is you only run one wire around the whole circuit. The down side is when you push the button there’s a three second delay where all these detonators say ‘I’m ready’ to each other.”

    When Craig arrived on the Moroccan set, there was quite the pressure to get the scene exactly right. After all, they only had one shot.

    Chris added: “So when Daniel came up I said, ‘This is going to be spectacular, but there is a problem with this.’ He said, ‘What’s that?’

    “I said, ‘We’ve got to press the button before you’ve said the end of your line. He said, ‘What do you mean?’

    “I said, ‘Well I’m not going to go into the technicalities here, but you’d just better get your line right alright otherwise we’re in deep s***.’

    “Anyhow we did lots of tests. Y’know we wouldn’t let the whole lot off; just a couple of sample ones so he could get used to it. But it did freak him out for a minute.”

    Do we know what Mendes and Logan's original idea was for B24 mentioned in this interview?

    How about Blofeld re-building the house where he lived with his parents and shared the same roof with the “blue eyed orphan”? The imagery is extremely powerful - and was clearly inspired by Tarkovsky’s Nostalghia - but how about the meaning behind it? I think a few members here would’ve liked a far more exploration of Blofeld personal connection and angst (just because daddy liked Bond more than him) against James.

    Geez. That stuff looks way better than the final product to me.

    Thanks guys, a few pics there I hadn't seen before. Will be interesting to see if any of these unused ideas will be recycled for the next film.

    Bond on a snow machine has a lot of great possibilities. CGI snow tsunamis excepted.

    Matt also revealed Bond star Daniel Craig is a joker on set.

    He added: “Spectre was my second Bond movie.

    "Dave Bautista plays Mr Hinx and I was his double in a driving sequence in Austria.

    “Then I played a bodyguard in a scene where Daniel is tortured then blows up the room.

    "Daniel tries to do as much as he can, or as much as the production will allow him, to make his actions look aggressive.

    “He’s got a lovely sense of humour — he does mess around.”
