    I just hope they don’t scrap the film. Can’t see it happening, but then again nothing would shock me anymore.

    Define for us what you mean by “scrapping” the film. The movie has already been made. The film was set for release but had to move the date because of a worldwide virus that’s forcing countries to halt industry at all levels.
    So, I’m curious what scrapping means to you under these conditions.

    I'm really torn over this having seen the trailer 3 or 4 times, I don't really want to see any more of this film until it's out but goodness me another 7 month wait is ridiculous.

    I'm really struggling to see how they'll get the hype train back on track for this film. I mean sure it's a Bond movie and people will see it regardless, but this is beyond a disaster at this point. Do you postpone promotion of the film? Do you pay those involved extra to be available in October/November to promote it?

    I can't believe how quickly all the excitement for this film has left my body, you'd think it were some sort of virus or something

    I do wonder how Eon is going to restart the marketing for this film 7 months after all this hype? I'd welcome a new trailer, maybe some new stills, etc. Perhaps the current trailer and clips will be pulled for awhile and simply brought back before the release? Nah, that wouldn't work.

    I just said this over on the production page @ToTheRight: My advice would be to just edit new ones out of the footage we've seen with some new clips. I think to reveal any more would be a mistake, and could just lead to most of the film being in the trailers.

    Was discussing this earlier with some folks on Twitter. Seems like best course of action is basically radio silence and then restart in the summer, maybe attach new launch trailers with Wonder Woman and Tenet (maybe an IMAX prologue with the latter). Will they finally do Comic Con? How new will the trailers and posters be? This is all uncharted territory for a blockbuster of this scale...
  • My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined.

    All my hype is just gone. Like that *snaps*. It's like having theatrical blueballs.

    Hahaha what a comment. That should be the tag line to the film

    A cure to your theatrical blueballs, No Time To Die

    I get your point……

    But NTTD was actually the least heavily-marketed Craig-era film up to this point.

    We basically had one trailer (released very late) and a few TV spots. The posters were lacklustre and unremarkable. The only genie they can’t put back into the bottle is the song. But there are ways to keep the hype alive in that department. (basically turn it into a Oscar campaign in November)

    It’s not that bad a situation…..the smart thing to do would be to put the campaign on pause. Then re-start with Wonder Woman and Tenet.

    They will have to change the emphasis of the marketing campaign and come up with a new slant. But it’s far from being unsalvageable.

    Also in eight months time this current marketing campaign will be a distant memory :)

    I’m not going to watch any more footage of NTTD when we get closer to November. No, I mean it! :)

    I may be wrong headed about this but a high profile delay may even play into the movie’s overall mystique. Also, NTTD has a level of year-long marketing/awareness that most films never get. If the Olympics continue as planned, the. NTTD will have aired spots in the Super Bowl and the Olympics.

    Also, if the spread of COVID-19 gets worse then EON will look absolutely brilliant for having the balls and conscious to move the movie.

    Omega is also an official sponsor of the Olympics, so they could take advantage of that.

    Right? I don’t understand these sorts of random hysterics either. How does it even make sense to scrap a finished product? Because we can’t release the film on time we’ll just scrap the whole thing and pretend it never happened? Even though the film has already been made and millions of dollars spent on it? What kind of rational decision would that be? That’s just instant financial and creative suicide right there. Who would ever go for such a thing? Even if the film was to lose major revenue they would still try to squeeze every penny out of it, even if it turned out to be a financial flop. To not release it at all means they wouldn’t make a single penny out of it. Major loss, major catastrophe. How would that make sense? That’s why I don’t understand people who keep bringing up this whole “scrapping” business. You don’t scrap something that’s finished and that you poured millions of dollars into. SPECTRE’s entire script was leaked. Did they scrap the film? Of course not!

    The UK has just moved into stage 2....which means we are on the verge of shutting down here as well. Probably will see other films now go under:

    Yeah from a marketing point of view I find it rather fascinating: I'll be very interested to see how they do it.
    Certainly 'delayed Bond film finally coming out' will be a big editorial angle they'll be able to play.

    I wonder if the 5 News update that said that anyone who is going to catch the virus will catch it "in the next four weeks" is accurate.

    First UK death confirmed.

    Here, where I am, we're still lingering around the dozen cases confirmed mark.

    The trailers of course, still have the old release dates...even the posters, wonder if they'll make new posters or simply change the dates. All in all, I think little changes might occur....one has to wonder if they might be tempted to do additional scenes. Maybe giving De Armas more scenes or something. Although, I don't know how likely that is. I think Zimmer and his team & Kleinman are the only ones with the luxury of doing anything additional.
  • Maybe they can start filming B26 a bit quicker!

    Love that car stunt dodge on the bridge: very nice.

    Original, right? Really liked it as well. Poor Maserati.

    Glad I'm not the only one, my feelings of joy when I saw the baddies using Quattroporte's and Lancia Thesis' was quickly gone when I remembered how the bad buy cars usually end up. Same with the Alfa 159 in QoS.

    This feels very much in keeping with more classic Bond films where the villains always used to drive Italian cars. I really appreciate that touch! You can tell it's a movie because they don't break down before the chase.

    Haha! Just like I joked to friends, "having the bad guys chase a hand-built British car from the 60's in Italian cars from the early-late 90's at least evens the odds of them making it through the chase without some form of breakdown."

    TV spot was played after Craig’s SNL opening. It had the release as Thanksgiving.
