I didn't spot that. Oh that's a bit silly.
Nice work! :D
Yes, I'm not keen on the music playing over the logos either.
I assumed theyd AI'd the footage to be in even more HD than it was previously- I thought that's why Leo looked so smooth- but if it is CGI theyve done a really good job imo
I was reading that apparently they’d CG-ed his mane and ears for Quantum of Solace when they made a new version then(!). I certainly can’t spot it.
It was a nice touch for SP, but I'd rather it didn't become a regular thing. I like the sudden blast of music - it's like a shock to the system.
- Open straight into Norway
- MGM and Universal Logo
I think, for impact, straight in. Make the Norway section a prologue to the main film.
I am no longer convinced that the film will open in Norway. There was something in the way Simon Hayes described that shoot (in the Production Sound & Vision interview) that has made me think this way. I could be wrong. But whereas I was once 100% certain that the film begin there, on the frozen lake, I am at 50-50 now.
I think it's really important for NTTD to subvert audience expectations and opening into a creepy, Bond-less miniature horror thriller before cutting to the logos and gunbarrel would be really jarring (in a good way) and set a unique tone and mystery out the gate.
However, with the opening scene, Fukunaga bucks tradition in every way: It’s slow-paced, visually arresting, subtitled with dialogue in French, and entirely Bond-free.”
Hot damn! Thank you for this @Mallory !!!!! Not only does this solve some mysteries, it opens another can of worms.
But the article is wrong, right? As we all know, not every 007 film features 007 in the PTS. LALD did not. TMWTGG featured a wax statue of him. FRWL featured a man in his mask.
Interesting! I’d be open to that, although a part of me does say “can’t we just have one normal one?” :D
The one thing they won't do is play the Universal or MGM logo anywhere other the start - you're sorely misguided if you believe otherwise!
Now that that's confirmed, we still don't know whether the Matera sequence precedes or follows the title sequence. If Matera immediately follows Norway, that would be a 20+ minute PTS!
And that would make it the 3rd Bond-movie in a row, where the best part of the movie is in the PTS.
The song wouldnt make much sense if it was before the Matera section, which I suspect the song heavily references, given that is was Eilish was given to work with.
I dunno, I think the Cuba section could be a knockout.
Plus Matera is set some years before isn't it? (Isn't Craig's hair dyed a bit for those scenes? Did someone here spot that? I can't remember) So, like GoldenEye or DAD, the song seems a natural point to throw forward a few years.
