    I agree. I was not bothered by the "waste of good Scotch line" because it was meant to throw off Silva's henchmen. But there was an opportunity, after Bond returns to MI6, for some sort of exchange: "Sir, we still have not located her next of kin." "Keep trying. And check that burial arrangements have been secured. I want to make sure she receives the dignity she deserves." "Yes, sir." This sort of dialogue never happened, and it needed to.

    I think the Mendes team realized this mishap and did things a little differently with Lucia.

    I've heard, probably here, that they shot a scene that took place on the plane back to London, where Bond discussed the fate of Séverine and paid tribute to her, but it was deleted for pacing concerns. It should have been included as an extra on the DVD and Blu-ray.

    That said, the quick, brutal and casual dismissal of Séverine has the effect of catching the audience off guard, as everybody, when Skyfall was released, assumed that Bérénice Marlohe would be the main James Bond girl in this entry. If she's dead before the middle of the movie, I then wondered who the lead female character would then be, until I realized it would be M.

    Interesting. I wonder if Moneypenny was on that plane, too.

    We are now receiving confirmation through a source that Safin's first name, may be Lyutsifer.
    If you were to go back through this very long thread, or rather search for Lyutsifer you'll find that that was mentioned on here with that spelling back in September last year.

    By we are you referring to other members of the forum, or someone else?
    Also a confirmation on any forum is usually followed up to a link to the source. Hearsay and off the record sources cannot be trusted. Obviously.
    Looking forward to you filling in the gaps @MakeItWorkforYou

    If you scroll up a few posts you will see another poster confirming the two sources where this was seen. Sorry you missed it, Ben. Look a bit harder next time.

    Daily Mail article based on Total film's

    Daniel Craig reveals completing a story that started in Casino Royale helped convince him to return for No Time to Die

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-9801493/Daniel-Craig-reveals-completing-story-started-Casino-Royale-lead-No-Time-Die.html

    While I agree he is gonna complete a story I just wish Skyfall would have been a stand alone. That movie didn't need to be tied in with the others.

    Very much agree. Till SP, there wasn't any logical connection to link all the Craig films.
    I'm hoping the link in NTTD is at least credible.

    Fully agree on this. Should have remained a standalone, especially as it apparently was planned as a standalone. Whose idea was it? Logan?

    Sadly @MakeItWorkforYou decided he didn’t want to continue here.
    Let’s carry on with NTTD discussion and hopefully it’s imminent release. [-O<

    We still have 007's production vlogs in the pipeline plus DHL's vlogs

    And many unpublished stills from photographers Greg Williams, Nicola Dove, Jasin Boland, Fernando Escovar, Ed Miller (Jamaica), Christopher Raphael (Norway)

    Yeah I forgot about those, the Greg Williams shots I've seen of Daniel, Lea and Ana are fantastic. If I'm not mistaken I think it was you who shared them on here, thanks @Contraband
    I can't wait to see more behind the scenes photos

    So it looks like the German voice of Craig doesn’t know how the film ends, despite doing the whole dubbing of the character!
    I always suspected, and it’s been years now, that Bond will be presumed dead with the explosion of Safin’s base but we eventually see him in the very end in Matera waiting for Swann and Mathilde, kind of á la TDKR ending.

    The fact that his voice didn’t have to dub any lines from the very end reinforces my prediction… we’ll see.

    Do we know for sure there are more production vlogs coming? One would have expected they'd have been in the release process circa Feb 2020/March 2020 as well, before the first delay, but at the time there wasn't really a consistent series of them ongoing.

    I can only recall the two one-offs (Bond on set in Jamaica, and then the Fukunaga-narrated one later).

    Yes, if Bond is not saying anything in his last scenes of the film, Dietmar Wunder does not need to see those scenes to perform the rest.

    @Jordo007 Yes it was me. And damn irritating that they haven't been publishing more of those. At least 250 stills left in the pipeline from Greg W, even if we have already seen them with watermark all over.

    They had at least one camera team shooting BTS-material (not counting DHL). I have stills of the team filming in Matera and at Pinewood-Havana set.

    Have a similar hunch too — let's hope we're right!

    Thanks for sharing @matt_u , I "wunder" how good Dietmar is at poker...
    I do have a feeling we're going to get a FRWL novel style ending, possibly with the climax of the YOLT novel mixed in for good measure. Although I'd rather Bond finish NTTD in an orange dingy with Paloma

    Could you point at the minute when he talks about NTTD? Thanks!
  • That's been my feeling as well. From day one I figured this would be Bond's TDKR.
    Bond dies (literally or figuratively), Madeleine and Mathilde go on to live their happy lives together (potentially with Bond if he survives), and Nomi is the John Blake character, after proving she is a worthy successor to Bond as 007 over the course of the film. That concludes the Craig Bond universe, and we blow it all up and start fresh for Bond 26. It's hard to imagine it going any other way.

    Ana de Armas is the Bond Woman We Need Now
    https://harpersbazaar.com/uk/beauty/a37063381/ana-de-armas-beauty-interview/

    "I tried to have a training plan! My preparation for No Time To Die was not as long as I would have liked it to be. I was shooting Blonde, and I had only a few days to train, so I went straight from Blonde to shoot for Bond. I didn't have the time to actually commit to any kind of diet or workout or training because my schedule just didn’t allow for it.

    "Those few days that I did have some training – I had the gun training and learned the choreography for the scenes – were very intense, for sure. It was a short but really intense immersion into the Bond universe, so I quickly transformed into a CIA agent."

    "Paloma is actually a really complete character. Cary [Joji Fukunaga, director] created her from zero and he asked me if I wanted to do it. It was very appealing from the very beginning, when he was telling me what he was going to do with the character. I was very excited, and I did feel like she was different, unique. She's definitely something else that I don't think we've seen in other Bond girls in previous movies. She's a lot of fun – very active, very badass!"

    I'd prefer that Bond films don't copy/paste from other movies, but no one's asking me.

    Thought I add this video with Lashana, also from Harpers Bazaar UK. Don't think we have seen it here. Posted on YT 8 months ago. She's talking about "smashing stereotypes and being the first female 007".

    That's interesting: she's still not saying it explicitly, but there's not much doubt that she is talking about the 'debate being centred around her'.
    I think it's so funny that Eon have kind of let her being the new 007 kind of dribble out without either fully denying it (a la Waltz playing 'Oberhauser' in Spectre) nor actually making a big publicity thing of it, which I'd have imagined they would do.

    I think they assume - rightly, in my opinion - that the movie will do the talking for them.

    Maybe, it just seems a big publicity angle to me. Or a spoiler that you don't promote at all (like Blofeld).

    Well, the trouble with that is that there's a very vocal group of people (even among Bond fans) that are absolutely against the idea of a female 007. If you come out and say that Nomi is 007, then you risk alienating a part of your audience, and it's all the internet will talk about, in a very polarising way. That's not what you want from a marketing standpoint, to divide audiences before the film is out. You want people talking about Craig, about that it is the last one, about Safin, and about the Aston Martins to keep the sponsor happy. Nothing that can spur controversy.

    And why they aren't flat out denying it? That's more difficult to say, I guess it's because it didn't pay off for Waltz and the Oberhauser/Blofeld thing, people saw that coming regardless what Waltz and BB & MGW said. It's the same with Rami Malek, he isn't flat out denying those Dr. No rumours either. And with Nomi potentially being 007, it's a 'lesser' spoiler. If it turns out to be true, then I suspect they meant for it to be a jaw dropping moment - M says "Where's 007?" and then Nomi steps into the office, something like that.
    And we'll all go "Well, we all saw that coming, right?", like we did with Oberhauser. But the difference is that this is presumably pretty early in the film, whereas the Oberhauser reveal is a third act spoiler, so this is less impactful.
