But I doubt they'd have bought it back to only use it once. I'm confident it'll be in Bond 24.
You mean the same classic M office and Moneypenny desk, now with laptops?
Or the underground stuff? They won't go back to the underground.
I fully expect to see the continuation of the relocated 00-Section Chief's HQ in Bond 24. In other words the Ken Adam set.
I am so pleased to see the traditional M's office set back, and look forward to Fiennes and Craig recreating some of the classic Lee/Connery tense scenes. It really feels as if the franchise has finally cast off the last of the 90's Brosnan hang ups and is ready to return to a more classic style of Bond film.
Not sure it is back in Whitehall, after all there is now an official MI6 headquarter which anyone knows and can see from the outside in London. I thought the explosion was also an excuse to refurbish M's office to look like the old Whitehall place.
And beside, I have read somewhere that C's real MI6 office is very much old fashioned looking.
I need to watch it again. I always thought they were still in MI6 headquarters, only the inside was changed re(tro)vamped to look like the old set.
Well wasn't Bond on a rooftop in Whitehall when Eve walked up and handed him M's gift, then they went downstairs to Mallory's office? So then it's back in Whitehall. Easy.
I'm not sure exactly what they'll return to. I always got the impression that the underground was (a) temporary and (b) was compromised by Silva anyway. I think (especially if Mendes returns) that we'll probably get the wood-panelled, padded door set back - with the items such as laptops, screens, phones etc etc integrated, à la Skyfall
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed seeing it, but I don't necessarily want to see it in the next 5 movies as well - it wouldn't add much!
And I wouldn't say that they're pretending to live in the 1960's, just because their office dates from the 17-1800's.
I don't get that at all. My financial advisor, who is 28 and VERY modern, has an office that looks very similar to M's. I don't think that he's pretending to live in the 60s, that just a professional, and warm and inviting, style.
We get the "classic" Bond "ready to go" and now someone gets worked up about the classic office. It's not entirely the same, it has a picture of MI6 HQ behind M's desk.
MI6 and Bond should always stay as they are, in the 60's. The world changes. That's how you blend old and new together.
Did you mean to write this?
Not only this, but I hate Terry Farrell's disgusting Vauxhall Cross building. It wasn't even designed for MI6. It is a speculative office building that happens to look like a Fascist secret police HQ.
The film Bond's MI6 belongs (IMO) in some undefined location in Whitehall. For me, the final scene of SF was the best of the entire film. I was left, as I have been on a number of occassions now during the DC era, hoping that the next film is going to really nail it.
I have a financial advisor , it's the latest thing from lady branch, it's called a girlfriend (cue bond theme) .
Sorry about the double post.
As written in the novels and seen in the first films, Bond's world - MI6 should stay as it is, as should his character, though I'm sure you know that's what I meant.
