This one was kept tho and it's even better imo:
Anyway I suggest to go see it again. Every time gets better for me.
I love the Matera and Norway chases but considering how much they praise these moments in the BTS videos, I was hoping they'd be longer. Still great, though.
This was actually my interpretation both times I saw it, I only mention the rear-machine guns due to a BTS photo someone shared. Either way, it worked for me and didn't stand out as too jarring.
What about the sheep?! :D
That's it. But some plans are missing to make it clear to us. For me Fukunaga isn't a great action director. Actually, he's just ok.
He's driving along, a car comes at him head-on, he flicks the car around the hairpin bend and drops the mines from the back of the car, which throws them forward into the front of the oncoming car. If he has to spin around to avoid the sheep and come back the way he came would that not mean he hits any of his own mines still unexploded first? I'll have to watch it again :)
There is absolutely a longer cut of the movie out there and it would be nice if EON either released it, or at the very least put the deleted scenes on the Bluray.
Ideally of course, the physical release of the films on 4K for the 60th anniversary (which is 100% why they've been kept back until now) means we might get some kind of boxset that features the unreleased deleted scene from the films.
And hopefully, the unused features for the never released QOS special edition as well.
I'd also be fascinated to see how many of these are bits that had to be cut out either during filming or post because the rewrites meant they no longer worked with the final version.
Normally I'd say yes, but given how long the film is already I don't doubt there was a mandate to keep it under 2.75 hours.
There are definitely some parts that feel a bit overtightened in places, to me, anyway.
I expect the mandate was to get it under 165 mins, which I believe is the maximum amount of film an IMAX 70mm projector can hold.
Seeing as they never did a imax 15/70mm release in the end, it was a bit pointless.
So how would that have fitted in? Nomi's car and replaced by the DBS?
Oh my goodness, maybe, but how they handled that transition in NTTD is one of my favourite parts of the film!
Closeup of a furious Bond looking at Leiter's cigar, in the dingy.
Wideshot to a huge British vessel blowing it's horn and approaching Bond.
In this way NTTD is a nice callback to LTK; Leiter is attacked and it galvanizes Bond.
That article also suggests that Bond's watch gadget was not shown unlocking the door. Is this true?
The scene where Bond unlock the door is in the movie, but not this particulary close-up shoot (in the movie it's only a larger shoot). The two last sections of the article are dedicated to 1) scene in the movie, but differents shoots 2) scene in the movie, but altered with by computer visual effects.
Disappointing to learn all those other stunning shots didn't make the cut. And that iconic spear gun shot as he walks past his window...to think I spent money on that thing. Feels like a bit of a cop-out for the companies and collectors alike.
Well maybe one day theses adverting things that are not in the final product will be considered like "false advertising".
Very curious, I wonder why. If it was Nomi's it seems a better fit for her, as being part of a new breed of Double Os.
