    The tidbit on Blofeld is interesting. Primo's gonna be his eyes and ears while also working for Safin. With this movie's long runtime, I'm wondering if after Safin's defeat, Blofeld will make a surprise appearence as the final antagonist (similar to Green Goblin's appearence at the end of the Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Two-Face at the end of The Dark Knight)

    One really wonders how much and how exactly Blofeld will factor into the story. I’m convinced it’s going to be conclusive one way or another based on the many comments about this film rounding up everything in Daniel’s continuity.

    I think one way they could do it is set it up like the end of Casino Royale, where Bond, Madeline,
    and their daughter
    are on vacation enjoying themselves some time after Safin's defeat. Suddenly Spectre agents led by Primo (if he survives) intercept them and take them hostage, while Bond is taken before Blofeld. Essentially this would be Spectre's third act but more condensed with higher stakes and more action with Bond killing everyone, including Primo, before finding
    Mathilde
    and saving Madeline from drowning (mirroring him trying to save Vesper, but succeeding this time) . It would end with Bond intercepting Blofeld and killing him once and for all, ending the movie with Bond, Madeline, and
    Mathlide
    embracing each other, finally at peace

    Would really be something if there was all this at the end that just hasn't been hinted at /revealed thus far!

    It's possible. Endgame managed to keep it's entire third act hidden until release and so far we know next to nothing about NTTD's ending. I mentioned that this part wouldn't be as long as Spectre's third act and be more closer to the sinking building fight in Casino Royale

    The only thing that has me somewhat disappointed is that
    Based on Bond being the only one rescued from the sinking ship, it seems they really will kill off Felix. Not a deal-breaker for me, but I don't see why you can't just leave him maimed, out of action, and stay true to the original stories.

    Feels like with movies lately the only way writers know of getting an emotional response from an audience is by killing a beloved character.

    Finally saw Being Bond. Pretty good. The only thing new I learned from it was Craig was working with a broken leg for a good portion of filming Spectre. Other than that didn't learn anything new. The OHMSS soundtrack playing at the end got to me cause it finally hit me this will be Craigs last.

    If that does turn out to be the case, I will probably be ranking NTTD at the bottom spot.

    Really ? In The Sopranos they killed...for those who've not seen it I won't say but those who've seen surely would know the character to whom I refer. And they were not the first show to do that. Admittedly, the show to which you referred used it very effectively.

    At any rate -- I agree with you about how to treat the character who might seem to be at risk.

    I'm starting it now! Will keep an ear out.
    Already a new track at 2:11. Feel a very tropical.
    6.06 sounds new
    7.25 so many nice Bond motifs
    17.20 is beautiful, very sweeping

    Was just coming on here to say that. It sounds fantastic.
  • I was multitasking listening to the episode at that point not paying full attention but that cue came in and gave me goosebumps.

    No Time to Die: James Bond fans complain as it’s revealed 163-minute film will be longest 007 entry ever

    “Why is the new James Bond movie 2 hours 43 minutes long,” wrote one Twitter user. “Does that include a cocktail break. did they add another minute for every week of delays.”

    “I don’t know whether to be excited or dreadful about No Time To Die being almost 3 hours long,” wrote someone else.

    There’s plenty of dumb people on Twitter. NTTD is a couple of minutes shorter than The Dark Knight Rises. What’s the problem I don’t know.

    They killed off M. I don’t see the problem in that idea as long as it’s done well.

    This!
    No time to die is "TDKR" of the bond universe, an epic culmination of story and character development.
    And if they do kill off a major character, I imagine it will be handled correctly and give Bond the motivation to go forth. I doubt we're going to get another Mathis in the trash can scene (and I love that scene). Craigs bond has always been plagued by tragedy and loss no matter how hard he tries to leave it behind, NTTD is culminating that so I expect huge stakes in the personal loss department.

    Do we think we will see bond aboard the ship.

    Apparently only 2nd unit crew was sent aboard according to recent production notes

    (Wishful thinking? Maybe I just want to see Craig don the Commander Uniform lol)

    I find the actual quote from her worse.
    “We are in a place in time where the industry is not just giving audiences what it thinks the audience wants. They’re actually giving the audience what they want to give the audience. With Bond, it could be a man or woman. They could be white, black, Asian, mixed race. They could be young or old. At the end of the day, even if a two-year-old was playing Bond, everyone would flock to the cinema to see what this two-year-old’s gonna do, no?” the Captain Marvel star said.

    Perhaps I'm too cynical (although I do not think so), but it seems that now more than ever the industry is focused on what they perceive the audience to want, to maximize profits. And no, Lashana, I wouldn't go watch a 2 year old play James Bond.

    I think the difference for me is
    that it's an existing plot point in the books and movies that Felix nearly dies, but is left maimed. I would much prefer if they just bring that back in the Craig era rather than kill him off to get some tears out of the audience. Bond can most definitely still be angered and affected by that.

    A fake-out death of Felix could be interesting. What if he appeared dead and lost in the earlier scene that came back to help MI6 towards the end?
