    Nomi seems to follow Bond up the stairs to Safin but then she doesn't seem to be present when Bond tells him it isn't kind to play god. Does she die at the hands of Safin?
    I need this movie asap!!

    Are you kidding me? There is literally no way it will be delayed to autumn 2021. They would 100% release it on VOD before delaying it that much. I am willing to bet 10 THOUSAND euros with anyone here that NTTD will be released on 31 March 2021 the very latest either in theaters or as a VOD release.

    @Torgeirtrap I was just about to ask you about the furnitures, if it's from Scandinavian designers?! And maybe from the 70's even

    Yes, the Safari chair (also known as Hunter, I believe), was designed by Torbjørn Afdal in the 60's. His multi-purpose bench Krobo is perhaps his best known piece of furniture.

    That chair on the right looks familiar too, but I haven't been able to figure out what model it is.

    Might it be Swedish or Danish made? There's the Blinken chair, designed by Adolf Relling for Hjellegjerde Møbler in the late 50's, which his sort of similar, but the still image is too dark to make a comparison.

    If coronavirus continues to spike in the US do people think that they might release in some territories in November and delay the US release? FRWL for instance came out in the US I think 6 months after everywhere else. Bit more problematic though in this day and age with social media, it would mean that everything about the film will be out there for US audiences.

    The movie would already be out on Blu Ray nearly everywhere on the planet if the US release date was 6 months later.

    We are talking about a $200 million + budget film. VOD is simply not an option. They will delay it as much as needed to release it in theaters. Same for Tenet, Wonder Woman, Black Widow, etc. These films are all safe bets for joining the $1 billion club, there is no way they get dumped on VOD.

    Besides, recently you said there was no way NTTD would get delayed again, and now you are mentioning a March 2021 release.

    NTTD is pretty much the only movie with a release date set for this year that cannot be delayed again. Why? Because it has already been delayed 3 times. Delaying a James Bond movie four times would be incredibly humiliating for everyone involved.

    It is 100% an option. Everything is an option when there is a global pandemic such as the one we are in the middle of right now. They are not going to wait until the end of times for cinemas to reopen. Sooner or later they will go the VOD route. I am saying they won't wait longer than the end of March 2021. I might be wrong about the date, but they are certainly not going to wait 10,5 or even just 2 years for cinemas to reopen.
    Besides, recently you said there was no way NTTD would get delayed again, and now you are mentioning a March 2021 release.
    I am still saying NTTD won't get delayed again, I am just not willing to bet 10 THOUSAND Euros that it won't get delayed again. On the other hand, I am willing to bet 10 THOUSAND Euros with anyone here that it will be released before 1 April 2021.

    We might even see a mixed theatrical / VOD release. Theatrical release in safe countries, closely followed by a VOD release worldwide.

    THANK YOU for the kind words my friends. Mom is getting a Covid test tomorrow and Dr. prescribed antibiotics in case it's strep throat or something else. it's alarming that she got sick with anything, even just a cold, because she's been wearing a mask everywhere, wiping down groceries, leaving packages outside, etc. She really went the distance and still managed to catch something. Goes to show that short of dressing up as Bubble Boy, there's really nothing that's 100% going to protect you.

    Anyways....loving those new pics of Safin. I fully agree with the idea that he's a reimagined version of a certain villain with Dr. as his title. The only key difference being that Safin seems so much more dangerous. He's shooting at a child in the trailer and pointing gun at someone else in the photos.

    He's an actual threat by himself, not just a talking egomaniac with henchmen to do his dirty work.

    I said before I was willing to brave the theaters to see this film but now I'm saying no freaking way. VOD all the way for me.

    We are only four months into the U.S. bout with this virus. We have four more months until NTTD's release date. A lot can and will happen between now and then. While a vaccine is not likely to emerge, on a widespread basis, by then, keep your eyes on the emergence of Remdesivir, an effective treatment for COVID-19. Over the next couple of months, the drug may become more widespread, with an inhaled version in the works. This drug does not prevent spread of the virus, but it makes it a lot less fatal.

    @ertert Sorry to hear about your mom. Hope she will get better asap!!

    Re: Safin: I assume you mean the frozen lake? He doesn't shoot at young Madeleine while she's fighting for her life in the icy water, he's trying to rescue her by shooting up a wider hole in the ice so can she climb up again only for him to kidnap her. At least that's my take from it.

    Thank you!

    Interesting theory. Even so, I still think he's far more dangerous and creepy than Dr. No.

    While waiting for the new Empire Magazine issue, here's the one from April, Bond Special covering the franchise in case you haven't read it. It's the Empire Australasia issue pages 54-78

    https://docdro.id/PMUgZA2

    This link made my day. Thanks for sharing.
    Not too much new informations about Bond but a good read anyway.
    Unfortunately, the author of the Dr. No part doesn't know the difference between Sweden and Switzerland (Andress has a swedish accent?!). The other strange thing: Wilson and Broccoli talk briefly about the CGI in THAT awful DAD moment and they say something like it worked well???? I hope they improved the CGI standard for NTTD...

    I'm not impressed at all with the CGI-face of Craig in Matera. That brief shot of stuntman David Grant's face jumping of the bridge and same with Enduro rider Paul Edmondson racing on the bike towards the camera That's even on a poster.
    We also had a debate about Safin's submarine pen with Bond/Nomi in the glider, if that was CGI. It turns out the submarine pen and stairwell is a fully constructed set on Pinewood's North Lot (behind 007 stage) but the glider itself in that scene might be CGI.

    And although we haven't seen any footage of it yet they also built an old engine room with a roof at Safins bunker on the North Lot while the algaes lab (with creepy things in the tanks) and the good old watertank on 007 stage was used for the massive scene with the weird lights. Plus some add. rooms, stairwells and labyrinth of corridors

    Maybe the engine room is where Craig is from that picture that was released a while back. The one where he’s wearing the white Henley with the big cables in the background.

    Pure speculation here, but based on the footage from the TV spots in February and the new photo from Empire, I think this could be a Garden of Death/gauntlet type scenario.

    There are numerous bits of footage and photos showing Bond and Nomi (or Bond alone) making way through Safin's base, as well as numerous confrontations/appearances from Safin. Obviously there's the "men who play God" discussion in Safin's main room, but there's the shot of Safin with his gun in the tunnels, as well as the new photo of him with a gun in what looks like a zen garden of sorts. Bond's outfit also seems to change, with him ditching the navy blue jumper and ending up with a shootout with the white henley/suspenders.

    Perhaps the imprisonment that was rumored to be in Boyle/Hodge's script was still maintained, albeit in a smaller way. Could Safin be putting Bond (and Nomi) to the test? The "I've made you redundant" line comes to mind here. I'd be interested to know what you all think.

    Sadly, 'the next couple of months' is way too late. If any drug or vaccine were to help improve the situation by November, it needs to be widespread by next week. Anything later and this Remdesivir will be useless to make the virus less fatal. ICU's that reach maximum capacity in some states are multiplying, over 10 states are beating their daily infections record every day, the death-toll is rising again to almost 1,000 per day. The USA are now a lost cause, and the hopelessness of the situation is now likely to continue beyond 2021.
