These wonderful shots aren't in the movie and I don't understand why.
CR - como and Venice
QOS - Siena
Spectre - Rome
NTTD - matera
In QoS we saw Lake Garda, Carrara's marble caves and Talamone as well.
NTTD features also the Sapri coastline and Gravina di Puglia's roman bridge.
Possible SPOILERS - I simply don't know but probably yes!
They must have seen the 1950s film.
@Heinsenberg It looks like they're from a scene that got cut. I imagine there are quite a few of those given how many rewrites this movie got, and how long it ended up being.
I honestly wouldn't mind seeing an extended cut.
None of it.
@4EverBonded Good point, I had forgotten about that! 😆
Norway (present day) - No IMAX shot sequences.
I have yet to see the film but I just find it odd that Sandgren couldn’t top Deakins. I loved Deakins’ work in SF but I’m not sure I would call it the greatest cinematography ever. Even within the Bond franchise I’m tempted to lean more towards Freddie Young’s work in YOLT or Michael Reed’s in OHMSS.
But isn’t NTTD supposed to be the best looking Bond film yet? I guess it’s not. Hmm.
We have had Skyfall for 9 years. NTTD for 9 days. Give it some time and plenty of 4k blu ray viewings 😅
As @Mallory pointed out. Once it's on Bluray and people can take screenshots, I think it'll go up in people's estimation.
A lot of professors at my film school bring up cinematography in Skyfall. It’s definitely among the best of all time.
NTTD is very close, it might be better it might not be, only time will tell.
And it looks like it's now a given that a Bond film will get an outstanding director of photography who, in tandem with the director, will push cinematography into unexpected and interesting directions.
Van Hoytema can be great. Let The Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and most of his collaborations with Nolan show he's extremely talented. But something didn't necessarily gel with Mendes, who's more comfortable with Deakins.
Sandgren had a much better connection with Fukunaga, and it showed. And it wasn't a retread of Deakins' work, thankfully. That's what matters. If we got a lot of nearly abstract shots, something that Deakins is amazing at, it would get repetitive and derivative very quickly.
