    Poison gas targeting certain DNA types.

    Well Malek seems great and the character really creepy but if his name is really Lucifer it's not a very subtle choice imo, but we'll see. By the way does anyone know the last name of Nomi ? I heard it could be Quarrel...

    some new frames from the Safin trailer:

    Closeup of the 'farm' - note the people here are using nets to harvest something. Perhaps a deadly algae/plant as has been discussed many times?

    unknown.png?width=719&height=292

    unknown.png?width=719&height=302

    We also have confirmation of Madeleine facing off with Safin. Could this be the safehouse she and Bond escape to that gets broken into by Safin?

    unknown.png?width=719&height=299

    unknown.png?width=719&height=300

    Bond walking away from the poison gas unharmed while the SPECTRE agents fall - yet more fuel for the other theory of DNA targeting gas.

    Nomi and Bond, pre-jumper loss. Note the cameras - alert mode!:

    Reminds me of the initial idea for TSWLM, where a terrorist group takes out SPECTRE to take over the mantle.

    Oh, yes, I hope so. Even better than character posters.

    They're like an even more focused BTS video, I dig them. Proper way to get the marketing going without feeling stale or showing us the same footage and angles over and over again. Seems they are, in fact, sticking with that November theatrical date after all.

    With all this marketing, surely this has got to still come out this year, right?

    I don’t think it’s wise for anyone to assume the film will be released this year even though the marketing suggests otherwise. They will change the date if need be. EON seem confident in their product this time around and likely won’t dump this on PVOD. It’s clear they want people to see this film in theatres and I’m guessing they’ll delay it as many times as they need until they are able to release it when it is safe and feasible.

    Anyways, Safin looks very compelling and Madeleine’s “I’ve already lost everyone I’ve ever loved” line has Fukunaga written all over it. I can’t wait for the day I’m seated in an IMAX theatre waiting for the film to start, whenever that happens.

    Very good points. Part of me wants to assume that these recent 'November/in cinemas' postings make it more likely that they're full steam ahead on keeping that release date, but then again I purchased two separate sets of tickets last time and the film was delayed just hours later, so it's likely going to be up in the air for a while still.

    It's worth noting that they're putting legit ad spend on the recent trailer and today's Safin featurette on social media - both showing up as promoted tweets and posts.

    I honestly think it’s gonna stay in November as long as the UK and Europe are open. They’ll either take chances on whatever the state of the US is or delay to 2021 there specifically.

    If they take the latter option, considering that'd be quite a split delay, I'd be further curious to see what the U.S. box office returns are, considering the certainty behind it being pirated to hell in this country before the release date arrives.

    I just received an official 007 email advertising the new Safin BTS video and the Safin swag available on the 007 store.

    Crikey, strange times we live in! First time for everything.

    Has Safin's first name disclosed in a trailer or elsewhere by the producers ? I've seen it referenced twice already and it's really quite "over the top" and unoriginal, given the fact there's a TV show using it for years already. BTW -- given the clues we've seen and the producers' own descriptions, it might be ***** POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT BUT I'M JUST WONDERING REALLY ***** that the little young lady is Swann's daughter by way of, let's see, genetic noodling by Safin ( they indicated his evil plan may have a genetic angle and that's he's a brilliant scientist, albeit an eeeeevil one ), or just that Safin's the daddy, outright. Bond would be a good dude and look out for the girl, whether she be his chold or not. ALSO -- ***** more MUSINGS ALERT here ***** -- is Safin's plan one of de-population ? I'd get it but...it already was used in the first Kingsmen movie !!! Please, writers and producers, don't be that derivative ! ALSO -- ***** more MUSINGS ALERT here ***** -- some folks out there wonder whether Bond will survive and be alive at the end of this film. If not, I'd truly be surprised not over the idea itself -- Fleming toyed with it himself, and Sherlock died...for a while -- but because folks reported that this film's first writer/director wanted to "kill off Bond" and that this idea was the source of disagreement between the producers and Danny Boyle (as director and co-writer, with John Hodges as co-writer). Wouldn't it be odd to "break up" with Boyle over that idea, and then proceed and have that idea play out anyway ?

    Is that Tom So (Fukutu in Casino Royale) with Bond in the spotlight?

    He looks more like the man seen right next to Bond during the SPECTRE meeting in Rome.

    As for the film having a November 2020 release, the concern would not be limited to the US. Tenet just took a beating -- everywhere -- financially, compared with that which it surely would have made but for pandemic shutdowns. Thing is -- early 2021 won't necessarily be a time when folks will comfortably enter theaters, either. Even were a reliable, safe, proven vaccine released quite soon, it will take time to: reach many people, have many people feel comfortable with it and not think it was "rushed to market", so to speak. Things are quite different from the 1918-20 flu pandemic, but this may be noted -- it took a couple years. No one wants to hear it, but this pandemic episode may be with us worldwide for quite some time yet. As for going after some brilliant Home-Viewing strategy -- everyone gets a VR headset ! experience this one like you're in it ! -- it does not seem we're there yet. Besides, agreements are in place for theatrical distribution. Looks like everyone will take financial hit on this one, too, even if theatrical release were pushed back to next summer ! Maybe the Tenet folks and the Bond folks are counting on big On Demand purchases, but even if the price is comparable to what it costs to go the theater, or a little less, many folks just wait until it's part of their cable or dish programming. The mindset has not yet shifted. As for actually going inside a closed theater ? Presently there is a strong correlation between testing positive and having going to a restaurant indoors. If theaters space people significantly apart and keep theaters at a low capacity then (A) that still won't change the fact that theatergoers would be sitting in an enclosed space for a couple - nearly three - hours and (B) it would drop the box office drastically, as has happened with Tenet. Contrary to Christopher Nolan's stated ideas, movies don't bring people back into theaters, no matter how big and spectacular. A perception of safety does that, and that perception is not yet widespread. Furthermore, in case you've not witnessed it yet, with larger, and Larger, and LARGER tvs and with a fondness for game sets hooked up to them, the youngsters today (as I adjust my choppers and pull my pants up to my armpits) don't go to the theater as much. They watch at home. This paradigm shift may be accelerated by the present pandemic, but it may already have been underway. This transition -- while not even total, but of an appreciable percentage -- like many others, may be painful for many people and businesses. Perhaps at this time, big box office just won't be a realistic expectation unless home video is counted in.

    Indeed, based on what I am reading, things won't be much better over the next 9-12 months and might even be worse.
