    @Jordo007 The streaming aspect is purely financial.

    Personally I think the film will open straight into the Norway scene, then we get the gunbarrell, then into Matera.

    Yes I agree with you based on that interview Fukunaga did describing the opening. And a cold open then gunbarrel before the big action set piece would be a way to make the film unique.

    I don't think this is what we're going to get, judging by the gunbarrel song from the score that was released.

    I think there is a bit of creative editing trickery with that released Zimmer gunbarrel.

    This obviously points to a classic car chase of some description... but will it top Quantum of Solace?

    Hopefully yes. The setting is also a bit cooler if you ask me, even tho the Garda Lake road and the marble cave were crazy locations to shoot such a fast chase.

    sort of kind of related but important for those in UK/London - the Science Museum IMAX is reopening on December 9 with the new upgraded laser system. So for those looking for the full IMAX experience come April, this will be the place to see the film (presuming there won't be any 70mm prints, like there weren't planned for last April, so the BFI IMAX falls out as an option).

    and I won't be surprised if the press screenings and even parts of the premiere (the museum is right next to the Royal Albert Hall - and Nolan films have always had 'dual' red carpets at both Leicester Sq and the BFI IMAX as the 'intended' experience) are held there.

    I'm guessing this is purely speculation on your part? To me the format suggests: studio logos/gunbarrel/into an icy expanse. Perhaps you know something we don't or have evidence? Also - they should just restore it back to where it's always had the greatest impact... this "moving it around" experiment hasn't been terribly successful in my view...

    Agreed. The only time it's worked was Casino Royale, for a very good reason, and it had a brilliant effect.

    I might say it semi-worked for Skyfall as they re-established Q, Moneypenny, and M in M's classic office... but I still didn't really enjoy it there. Skyfall's cold open was also great though.
    It would have been cool if they put the gunbarrel at the beginning (of Skyfall), and then it just faded to Bond at the end of the hallway in the same position as he takes in the gunbarrel.

    Film hasn't been released and it's already getting nominated for an award.

    New LL interview - same kinda faff as usual though, nothing new but a little more hinting at Nomi's character.

    Thanks for that, fun read.

    Slightly odd that they go with:
    "The announcement in July 2019 of Lynch’s casting as the new 007 in No Time To Die, Nomi – not as James Bond himself, as many immediately assumed – was met with the typically feverish reaction this country reserves for breaking news about the royals, football and Bond."
    because it was never announced that she's the new 007. It still hasn't! :)

    As for opening in the past, in Norway, it would not be -- contrary to some lazy reporting -- the first Bond PTS without Bond in it. Bond did not appear in the PTS for LALD.

    He's not in TMWTGG's PTS either, unless you count the mannequin (that is clearly Moore attempting to stand still).

    Vaguely, in FRWL as well.

    Yes FRWL and TMWTGG both counts as bond's appearance even the way appeared. The only bond film PTS without bond was LALD.

    For me FRWL and TMWTGG don't count as PTS with Bond.
    It's not the character Bond appearing.

    That's true as well.

    I'm all for a brief, Bond-less pre-title sequence in Norway and then pick up in Matera after the titles. However, I can't help but feel like the title song will be a better fit after Matera based on the subject matter so I'm assuming that's where the titles will be. My hunch, based purely on my own speculation and the gun barrel track - logos/gun barrel > Norway (very brief) > Matera > titles.

    The Matera events will surely inform the lyrics to the title song, I'm thinking.

    The title sequence will most definitely start as the train departs Matera with Madeline on board.

    Matera is the PTS. It has been confirmed by the filmmakers many many times. Norway lake scene is a kind of nightmarish prologue before the classic, bombastic, PTS with Bond and Swann in Italy.

    So, you're saying that the Norway Sequence will be the Pre-Pre-Titles-Sequence ? The PPTS ?

    Billie Eilish and Finneas said they did, so I'm sure you're right.

    Guarantee this is how it will play out...

    ~Gun Barrel.
    ~Safin in Norway.
    ~ Madeline emerging from the water.
    ~Matera romance.
    ~Matera action.
    ~Bond puts Madeline on train.
    ~Title sequence.

    *This will most likely be the longest PTS yet.

    Yup! Michael G Wilson did say that it’ll be around 20 minutes in length.
