    Both clips are great. I’m slightly disappointed at the change of delivery to the “history isn’t kind..” line but that’s to be expected with some trailer dialogue.

    I can't say I'm a huge fan of the throaty timbre of Lashana Lynch's voice, but I'm sure I'll get used to it once I'm actually watching the movie (which I can still hardly believe is actually happening in less than two weeks!)

    Wow! That was a pleasant surprise to wake up to! Both those clips are great, the dialogue seems very punchy, the banter works and Nomi seems great. Craig looks on top form.
    I love the way he says "Jesus christ" after she says "high achiever ".
    Feels like a more quick fire version of Bond meeting Q in SF.
  • You'd think people would have learned their lesson with Craig's casting but again, so many people were writing Nomi off before seeing things in clearer context. It's only a short clip but she's certainly proving my prediction in being a character that will resonate well with audiences.
  • That Bond/Nomi clip is just spectacularly well-written dialogue. We haven't had anything even close to that in a Bond film since Casino Royale. And now my hype's sitting roughly at 11.

    Love both clips.

    I really love the shot of Nomi turning taking off the wig and turning to face him.

    "That's not the first thing I thought you'd take off" perfection ha!
  • The entire thing -- direction, dialogue, performance, even that bit of beautiful ambient music to start -- just screams of classic Bond. I know I'm overwriting one tiny clip, but...wow. Just wow.

    Full (free) interview with Craig on RTE Late Late show (12 min long)

    Can anyone fix a download link?
  • I want to temper my expectations but at this point I'd be shocked if this isn't a damn good movie. So much more colour in the performances and dialogue.

    That's my impression, too. I'm almost afraid to watch Quantum or Spectre now. I love those films too (in their own ways) but Spectre in particular just seems so....flat, compared to the energy crackling in that singular Bond/Nomi exchange.

    I was just thinking I'll watch CR and SF before NTTD. This one seems on that vein, lot's of colour in the performances and dialogue, energetic, like you guys said. I've now watched that bloody clip more times than I should have, and it's still great, just perfect actually.

    I just love how lively and almost catty the conversation is between Bond and Nomi. Both clips are very solid, really loved Safin's dialogue there. He seems proper twisted, can't wait to see more of him especially.

    Just realised that the wig gag is surely a mini-LALD reference.

    Can be. Rosie Carver, right?

    I instantly thought of Rosie when I saw that. Bond's retort here is quite good. Gives me vibes that he really doesn't care what he says or how it's taken after having been retired for so long.

    That scene with Nomi & Bond so shows PWB's fingerprints, my Wife remarked it is snappy.

    I think we might get the best written Bond film in... well.. you can decide.
  • Such lovely details, the lovely posed "Bond girl" silhouette as she removes the wig, the music, I also loved that he pauses mid sentence to correct her for calling him "Mr. Bond" instead of Commander and the little glint in Nomi's eyes like she's trying to supress the fact she's taken aback by being corrected.

    There's a quality there that as much as I love this era (apart from SPECTRE) that is dare I say has been lacking.

    The talent involved here, well.. I'll let you know after next Thursday... though I don't want to get my hopes up but this film looks like something very special and the most exciting thing unlike the last film, we still have so much more to be revealed.

    I think it very much comes down to direction. Sam Mendes and John Logan went for a much more buttoned-up and stately, stoic feel where Cary Fukunaga and PWB are bringing something a little looser and natural, more in line with Casino Royale.

    Such a great yet tiny aspect. I love it so much.

    Wow Rami is such a good actor he gives Safin so many weird little mannerisms, the way he was kind of fidgety gives off such a creepy vibe. There’s a lot of energy in the dialogue we definitely haven’t heard in the last few films.

    Yeah, I have that problem too. Lashana usually has a strong voice so I dont unsertand this weird voice she's trying on for a character who's apparently very headstrong and confident. But all in all, the scene has really bolstered my conficdence in the Nomi character being characterised well and not just being a statement character.

    What I like about the scene was definitely the Rosie Carter callback, the little quips from Bond (Not the first thing I thought you'd take off), though adding 'I guess' to the end of it is a little un-Bondlike, but the scene is really good in showing the characters of Bond and Nomi - Bond this older, confident and still as of yet unshakeable force, and Nomi, who in very intent to get a rise out of Bond, a little naive and immature being so young. Overall, fantastic scene, and the humor is definitely very similar to the SF Bond and Q interaction but much faster pace.

    Well by the looks of that awesome clip Nomi seems to want to break Bond out of his little "bubble" and bring him back to London...

    Which confuses me since Felix is sending him to track down Waldo in Cuba. It'll be interesting to see how the attack on the lab breaks out and how that sets both Felix and Nomi in motion to find Bond in Jamaica at the same time.

    Thoughts?

    Interesting take on it! I'd imagine that, being young and a very proud person, Nomi is a quite a bit more than peeved about having been sent to Cuba to act as a messenger for her retired predecessor, hence when Bond is seemingly dismissive of her she sasses him, not to mention she's probably heard horror stories in MI6 about him and his interactions with women so she's already very on alert about his tendencies. I'd imagine Nomi leading Bond back to his cabin was her baiting him away by charming him or showing interest, then turning it on him. Her last line reminds me of Natalya's line about Bond's life - that's what keeps you alive/alone - almost wholesale lifted from GE, I'd say. A neat little reference I don't think anyone has picked up yet.

    Everything in that brief clip is brilliant...I mean, the coloring of the water's reflection on the walls! Are you kidding me!!!!

    Couldn’t agree more! I was surprised no one chimed in on those colors and that shimmery water effect… wow!! Snappy is a good way to describe the dialogue too. NTTD hype level just went up… From my point of view, things are shaping up nicely!

    Bond DID already see a funeral with his own initials on a shroud draped over a coffin, which he found disquieting, in the PTS of TB. At the start of YOLT he explicitly faked his own demise in a planned sequence early in the film, but he did not see the funeral - burial at sea - because he was inside the burial wrap which was dropped into the sea...which was quite unnecessary, since he could already have been onboard with M and Moneypenny. But...that was the way they did things sometimes, moreso back then than these days.

    BTW if took me a moment to realize folks are mixing Batman titles by letters with Bond ideas on here. For a while I thought that "TDKR" was a Bond video game of which I was not familiar...and then it hit me...For a much more VAGUE ending, though - albeit clear for many of us -- go with an I-like ending...Inception, that is. Spinning top wobbles but continues ?
