    2) It is possibly the best-looking Bond film to date

    That's quite a statement given the last 4 films have looked very good
    No way to tell how this will look until we see a teaser. Hopefully they won't go overboard with the grading, like they did in large parts of SP.

    Of course the teaser trailer might look beautiful. Then in post production, someone could come along and regrade the color giving the final film a completely different look.

    On the trailers DAD the shots used for the PTS looked natural. Then the actual film had that blue/gray digital color grading over that sequence.
    I believe DAD was the first Bond film to utilize digital color grading.

    They had to do quite a lot with the Spain scenes didn't they? Because there was no sunshine when they shot it so they had to try and improve the weather. So grading isn't a bad thing.
    As always, it´s very much a matter of how it´s applied. I for my part love the look of DAD, because it compliments the silliness right from the start, making it clear from the first few minutes that this is not a serious film.

    According to the most recent episode of James Bond & Friends, a rough cut of the teaser trailer has been created and has been seen by one of the website's contributors.

    Two notes:

    1) Not much is revealed in terms of story
    2) It is possibly the best-looking Bond film to date

    Better looking than a movie shot by Roger Deakins?! WOW. Very exciting !


    It's probably hyperbole. I doubt any Bond movie will ever look better than Skyfall did. I'm sure NTTD will still look fantastic, though. I can't wait to see some real footage!

    All of Craig’s films have looked great ; but after the somewhat muted palettes of the last two, a return of some vibrant color is welcome.

    I often return to CR and QOS just for their colourful palette.

    Wow, some people here are here for the fun and games and others really need therapy. Cmon people, rejoice! Good word on the film is on the street. Teaser is probably ready. Stop complaining and enjoy.

    Very exciting times ahead.

    I hope they manage to squeeze some shots from the DB5 chase in there :)

    Are they a car down on that one?

    I hope some of these videos are different people filming the same take, otherwise they're going to be shooting that little scene forever!

    Been up to Pinewood at lunchtime ...there’s a very large Italian looking set in place of the Havana one. Very difficult to get pics of but if anyone drives past the roundabout it’s hard to miss

    When is the last day of shooting the chase? I remember stories about the chase taking place "on the roofs". Nothing to indicate that they are using other than the streets?

    The use of colour throughout Quantum is gorgeous. The palette can be described as "scorched Earth", with the warm and fiery tones throughout providing a nice contrast to the cold London scenes.

    I think that Sandgren will likely push NTTD closer to Quantum in terms of colour and texture than either of Craig's last two films.

    And that's a good thing, I think.

    It's been confirmed by Lotus Productions that filming will last in the city of Matera til September 21st. So there's plenty of time ahead. Don't forget that they still have to shoot in Maratea and Marina di Pisticci, plus they will come back to the cemetery location in Gravina.

    QoS, yes. CR no.

    CR has a great palette and some excellent cinematography. No doubt, QoS does too but it often strays into perfume ad territory for me. When story and cinematography combine well it can give a scene a sense of weight, unlike, for example, perfume ads which are beautiful to look at but pretty vapid. This is where QoS lands most of the time for me and SP suffers from a similar fate in that regard, where some of the framing and composition is genuinely stunning but it’s underpinned by a sense of lifelessness and/or lack of narrative impact. Basically, capturing ‘pretty pictures’ is one facet.

    Very well put. All true. Let’s hope they have a multifaceted beast on their hands.

    Although it's early days, my feeling is that they're capturing a whole variety of footage for this car chase: POV shots, ground-level, and helicopter/drone footage. All to the good if it means we'll have a combo of immerse, visceral stuff and long, wide/establishing shots.

    Makes me optimistic that this will look good on screen!

    The Scenes filmed in the Bahamas in CR are among my favorites of those in the Craig era. The vibrant blue of the water harkens back to sequences in DN and TB.
    I look forward to having that same experience with the Jamaican setting in NTTD.

    Just after they film the slidey bit around the bonfire a few more thousand times :)

    I love me some CR, but the "look" of the film is not something I latch on to at all. So much of it was shot in dark interiors. At the Ocean Club. At the Bodies exhibit. At the Hotel Splendide and in the casino. It's all very workman-like, and there's nothing wrong with that. Some of the Montenegro and Venice scenes are terrific, I'll admit. And then there is the beach scene with Bond in his trunks. But that composes little of the film. Generally, I find the art direction and cinematography in CR to be the weaker of the four in the DC era. But I don't really care: I love the film.

    True. My favorite shot is this one:

    All Bond movies are lensed great.

    CR suffers from scenes with overblown highlights and skin that is too orange (I always prefer they stay on the skintone line). QoS is probably the most vibrant of all the Craig Bond movies and SF has the best composition, IMO (Deakins is a master at this).

    Hear hear!

    I colors of the Jamaica clip were marvellous. I can only pray the film will be on that level.

    I love Deakins´ work on some other films, like BR 2049, or Sicario, but I´m not too overwhelmed by what he did with SF. Might be the connection with Mendes, but I also don´t like the single frames too much. I think Deakins is great, but he´s not the superhuman being he´s made into by some.
