    Yeah, It's likely from the Screentest. Since the Bedroom Scene from FRWL is the one EON likes using for James Bond auditions & Craig came with a longer hair, before he started filming as Bond. But wherever that Pic is from, till this day I would have liked it more....if EON left Craig's Hair a bit longer as James Bond. That Hair Comma is Cool....he even looks a bit like Dalton in that Pic.

    That screen test pic has been available since 2006.

    EDIT: I'm actually not sure if that's true, but it has been floating around out there for years now.

    I believe it is in the “Bond on Set - Filming Casino Royale” book from 2006.

    I'd *love* to get my hands on a copy of this book. I only have the ones for Skyfall and Spectre.

    Agreed, i haven't seen that pic before, thought worth pointing out since we might get to see his audition tape this year.

    That's new on me too. It will be interesting to see that, I don't know if we've seen two Bonds play the exact same scene before, have we?
    Do we know who played Tatiana in those auditions?

    I have vague memories of it being difficult to find even at the time of release, and getting a pristine copy was quite the challenge. Luckily it now sits on my shelf along with all the others.

    I do wish they would do a more in depth making of book. Having these photo diary books are ncie and all but it would be good to see script ideas, concept art, story boards etc with more input from the technical teams.

    Yeah, no idea, might be an unknown British actress....but Tatiana will definitely look & Sound Russian like this. And Sam Neill would have been Great as Bond....a Calm Bond.

    Actually, it was first published in the 'James Bond Archives' book from Taschen. Which I believe came out in 2012 and then re-published with new content in 2015.

    It's a bloody good book. Also, I believe it's quite cheap on amazon these days....

    Yep. This appears to be the case.

    Whenever cinemas re-open, Tenet will be there. Currently cinemas are hoping that date is mid-July.

    Essentially, cinemas (like every service industry) are suffering. As soon as they are given the sign by governments that it is safe to open they will. The opposite side of this equation are Hollywood studios.

    Cinemas want to screen new product to drive audiences in. However, they are dependent on Hollywood giving them those movies. Hollywood naturally has an inherent interest in delivering as theatre revenue is their biggest stream of income.

    The question then becomes: How does this work in practice?

    The answer may be that theatres commit to screening blockbusters to ensure audiences can see the movies they are excited about. This means films such as Mulan, Tenet, No Time to Die, Black Widow occupy all screens in any given cinema. This way social distancing can be adhered to. This impacts smaller films.

    The simple truth is that a vaccine is at least a year away in the best case scenario. There is even the high probability that a vaccine may never be produced.

    Therefore, we can't stay locked up forever. Once the rate of infection decreases, then we will have to return to civilisation. But life will be very difficult and social distancing/face masks/more awareness of personal hygiene will become the norm. In particular, service industries will be on life support.

    Yeah, with each passing day, it's looking increasingly likely that managing the Virus might be the order of the day....at least for the time being, until a vaccine is available. And Movies will be the due Escapism people need.

    It feels like we have been battling this virus for months already. Here in the U.S., our social distancing has been in place for only been about five weeks. Hard to believe. In many parts of the country, we're bending the curve alittle bit. If we stay on this path (stay at home, social distancing) for another 5-6 weeks, I am optimistic that we'll be in a good position for fall. But we need testing.

    Let's think positive.

    Here is the norwegian article (paywall) from VG (vg.no/rampelys/film/i/b5vw95/paa-innsiden-av-bond-innspilling-skurken-plottet-og-biljakt-i-norge) that @Torgeirtrap (thanks for the help) posted the other day lifting out some highlights. BTW: The journalist is Morten Steingrimsen, James Bond-Magasinet, Norway

    I have translated the article in full and only left out a few words about PWB from Babs. Nothing new there. Other then that I thought it had many more (minor) spoilers worth reading about then just Torgeirtraps highlights

    (Sorry if my translation isn't perfect)

    Major french cinema chain boss says a mid-July re-opening is 'unrealistic'.

    It is looking more and more likely that Tenet, Wonder Woman 1984 and Mulan are going to be delayed to late 2020/2021.

    Lay Offs Hit MGM Across Studio, United Artists Releasing Furloughs Third of Staff
    https://variety.com/2020/film/news/mgm-lay-offs-companywide-united-artists-releasing-furloughs-coronavirus-1234588388/

    MGM was forced to shoulder substantial financial losses when it pulled the James Bond film “No Time to Die” just weeks before a scheduled release in April — marketing and publicity spending was already in motion when the decision was made due to the coronavirus. One studio insider said MGM’s liquidity has nothing to do with Friday’s layoffs, and that the money faucet to promote Bond was turned off just before the bulk was spent. The company will take an incremental loss of $30 million, when all is said and done, in promoting the Daniel Craig project.

    Whelp, that effectively rules out a new Bond film for 2022...

    Also, isn't Bond's official birthday in November?

    If I were EON I would stake November 2023 as the release date for the new Bond film and then have 2022's 60th-anniversary celebration lead up to a reveal of the new Bond actor.

    If NTTD doesn’t make this Nov. I wonder when we’ll get to see it.

    Spider-Man 3 with Tom Holland has also been delayed to November 2021. Doctor Strange 2 has been delayed to March 2022 and Into the Spider-Verse 2 has been delayed to October 2022.

    I would hazard a guess at either summer or November 2021. Sobering to think it's already been delayed 3 times.

    2 films just moved to November 2021: The third Spider-Man film for the MCU, and Mission Impossible 7. Summer 2021 would be more likely for NTTD if it is delayed again.

    Spider-Man 3 with Tom Holland has also been delayed to November 2021. Doctor Strange 2 has been delayed to March 2022 and Into the Spider-Verse 2 has been delayed to October 2022.

    What's most curious about these new dates for 2021 films is many haven''t even started filming yet!

    Strict social distancing could be in place to early or even late 2021. How the hell do you make a Marvel, Mission Impossible or Batman film in such conditions? I think the answer is "you can't." This article from Variety describes it well:



    I know @antovolk is of the opinion that pressure from MGM shareholders will ensure that NTTD probably ends up becoming a VOD title at some point. However, this may be short-sighted as MGM will likely have zero product in 2021 and going into 2022.

    With every passing day, it looks like the schedule for 2021 will be wide-open as none of the franchise films will get made under the conditions imposed. Basically, Bond may end up in spring/summer 2021 as MGM will have little product. Why take a loss on something in 2020 when you can make a gain in 2021?

    There is a good chance though that the situation may be better come November as its so far out (pending a second outbreak doesn't occur in the winter).

    Yes I've been watching Reilly Ace of Spies on Talking Pictures TV channel the last few weeks and you can certainly see what they saw in him: calm and cool is definitely right. He could have done it.

    Funny how they change the script so he gets the 'Bond, James Bond' line :)

    Personally, I just don't see that. If the only way were ~20 months of social distancing, I think many policymakers would either accept excess mortality or shift to a focus on protecting the vulnerable. Tighter measured just aren't sustainable.

    I think for a gap of this length we really should have gotten a new Bond. Doesn't make sense, they didn't bring Dalton back after the 6 year hiatus and he only did 2 movies until then. I think Craig we seem like old news by the time Bond 25 is finally released. It would have better to bring in someone new, and that would have brought much more interest and excitement.
