    Will you post more pics of the magazine like you did yesterday. The wardrobe part would be interesting IMO.
    BTW you're doing a magnificent job. Thanks @matt_u

    There you go guys. Here's the Fukunaga interview and the costumes part.

    Some interesting stuff here, Fukunaga speaking about Bond: "[...] and so we are exploring the most dangerous thing threatening the world and how is this guy, with these multiple layers of complexity, going to stop it? What parts of his shadow side are going to come out?"

    It seems NTTD will explore the light and dark sides of Bond.

    One more thing I've noticed in the trailers is where exactly the scene of the infiltration of the office/lab will fit into the script.

    I've theorized that it happens after the PTS. Mainly for the following reasons:

    It's logical. After the Matera PTS, we know Bond then goes to Jamaica. When he is there, he is almost immediately approached by Felix to seek out Valdo. Logic dictates that in the movie, for the viewer's context, we are likely to see something regarding Valdo by this time. We are also given a rest from seeing Bond, adding to how we see a 5 year timeskip of him between Matera and Jamaica. It would make sense that we are given a respite from Bond to really set in for the audience that we have moved on in time, much like how GE use its PTS for the same effect.

    Another factor pointing towards this theory is the following:

    unknown.png

    The plane we see blow up Bond and Felix near the end of the Jamaica sequence can be seen flying over Bond's retirement boat in the daytime (note his yacht right at the tip of the left wing). I believe here we will see a shot of the plane flying off, then panning own to Bond's yacht as an introductory scene to where our agent has gone, physically and mentally.

    unknown.png

    This may be a stretch right now with our current information, but I believe this scene happens after Valdo is abducted or picked up. We even get confirmation that Valdo has the same case when he is with Primo at the labs as seen in Jamaica, as well as similar pants.

    The car certainly suggests Cuba.

    That's probably the moment Valdo escapes with his grappling gun.

    That's cool, from the Lifetime magazine:

    The DB5's presence in the final scene of SP allowed a smooth transition into NTTD, where the car appears when Bond makes his first appearance, driving an Italian coastal road with Madeleine, its digital number plate switching from the classic BMT216A to the Italian A426900. [...] The chase begins with SPECTRE agents giving chase in a 1996 model Maserati Quattroporte Evoluzione, a 2007 Lancia Thesis, a pair of Jaguar XFs and three Triumph motorcycles, one of which is ridden by the film's henchmen, Primo. Bond guides the DB5 through Matera's winding street, deploying a cluster of small mines from a secret compartment beneath the car's boot, which scatter on the road behind. With agents still clinging on his tail, Bond then drives the DB5 down a flight of steps before grazing it on a wall as he bids to slip through a narrow alley.

    Nice to have confirmation of the numberplate, although I feel like it changes shape too! :)

    Johnny English got there first though...

    A couple of news from the Omega Magazine:
    Moneypenny in NTTD is locked into a dilemma where she begins to mistrust M's activities and turns to Bond for help.
    I hope they don't make M a villain...

    They won't, Fiennes opposed to that when filming Spectre.

    M in this film is obviously on Nomi’s side, at least for the vast majority. Bond could be even a problem, given the fact is collaborating and talking with CIA. Nomi made it clear in their encounter in Jamaica (the knee bit). M is not gonna be a villain, that’s obvious, but Bond is not his employee in this one...

    I think 'bad decisions' thing will be about M trying to hunt down Bond and try to suppress his mission, and much lke Q in LTK MP will instead try to do something to help him.

    So without M’s support Bond will need some help and that’s where Moneypenny and Q will be “forced” to help their friend against M’s orders... Bond goes for Q in his apartment, not the Q Lab after all.

    Now for something different added to the collection - neither film prop nor merch: NTTD supervising stunt coordinator Olivier Schneider's 2nd Unit walkie talkie. You may remember he posted a photo of it on Instagram back in October:

    "so we are exploring the most dangerous thing threatening the world and how is this guy, with these multiple layers of complexity, going to stop it? What parts of his shadow side are going to come out?"

    Music to my ears. Fukunaga clearly understands that the DC era has been a Jungian approach to Bond. Expect more "mirrors" in this film: we have already seen another one in the latest trailer, when Bond returns to the hotel room in Matera. Even Safin's line, "I could be looking at my own reflection" alludes to the Jungian ideas about duality. But the most important image is this one:

    They really can't get enough of these personal and trust issues, can they?

    Caption:

    Bond: “Now I know what it smells like in here Maddy, but you gotta believe me, it wasnt me!”
    Madeline: “Whoever denied it, supplied it.”
    Etc...

    One would imagine trust issues play rather a large part in the life of a spy! :)

    I would say that M is not bent as in the trailer M says....Come on Bond where the hell are you ......

    That happens later but Bond being a problem for MI6 throughout Jamaica and Cuba is confirmed. There’s even a scene where M stares at Dench’s portrait, asking likely for some “”advice””. He probably thinks is too much a personal mission for Bond this time around, once James comes back to London.

    Thanks @QBranch!

    You can see the mines in the new trailer. At 2:19 bond swerves his car and we can see mines on the road and then a car drives over them and explodes up.

    Oh yeah! I thought the car was shooting at them with its big machine guns but you're right.
