    @MrBond, thanks for that post! About time we have something new to discuss.

    I'd stay up for this, but with the last few disappointing video blogs we've received, it won't be worth it.

    Indeed, the vlogs for SP has been lacklustre at best.

    more information here! New ‘Spectre’ Vlog Release Announced Featuring Léa Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, Sam Mendes

    At 8:00 UK time tomorrow, Thursday, August 13, the latest vlog from the set of SPECTRE will be released on www.007.com. Featuring Léa Seydoux and Monica Bellucci, as well as director Sam Mendes, the footage gives viewers a glimpse of the roles the actresses play in SPECTRE.

    Sam Mendes said, “In SPECTRE, the two women who Bond hooks up with, both have great mystery, they both have depths and for that you need fantastic actresses.”

    Regarding her character, Léa Seydoux shared some interesting information about her role: “She’s a doctor, she’s intelligent and very sensitive…”

    It seems Seydoux’s role is wrote the opposite of that played by Monica Bellucci who gave a clue about her character: “She’s an Italian widow with secrets.”

    Alongside the release of the new volt, new exclusive images from SPECTRE will also be released.

    I think SP has a tough road ahead to come near SF's BO. SF had a very clear field re limited spy film competition in 2012, had a PR bonanza with the Queen's Olympics video, plus the long 4 year delay between Bonds had to help. Nobody knows what kind of extra push Sony will pay for re promotion given they are almost certain to lose the franchise to another studio, and they know it. Hopefully they are contractually obligated re promo $s. There has also been just too many spy movies imitating Bond this year. If Uncle flops, spy film fatigue may be a factor and Spielberg's and Hanks spy film comes out just before SP.

    The critics can be very lazy, and my big concern is that they will both drag negative comments from the leaks into their reviews and also complain that big parts of SP feel too similar to other recent spy films, particularly MI5, which was a very good film. Bond is being imitated, but it is also Bond that is coming out at the very end of 2015's long list of spy films and the easily bored general audience can find parts of SP too familiar to recent spy films re WOM.

    Some have said it doesn't matter if SP doesn't gross near SF's BO, as long as the film is good. I too care mostly that it is a good film, but I also think it's BO take matters a lot. If SP doesn't at least appear to do well, Craig will be gone, and EON will lose leverage on negotiating the next distribution deal. That can't be good for Bond25.

    Well Sony has had a bad year, and SPECTRE represents their best opportunity to have one blockbuster movie (even if it isn't strictly their own). Anyway I'm not convinced the "spy fatigue" is a real thing, at least not in relation to Bond. It's probably more likely to affect The Man from UNCLE, which isn't attracting much heat. Looking back at 2002 which was a similar 'year of spies', Bond had to face :

    Goldmember $296 million worldwide (2002's equivalent of Spy)
    The Sum of all fears $193 (Man from UNCLE)
    Bourne identity $214 (Mission Impossible 5)
    xXx $277 (Kingsman)

    Both Bourne and xXx (lol) received 'Better than Bond/more badass than Bond' type press, and then :

    DAD came out and made 431 worldwide anyway, noticeably higher than any previous Brosnan movie. So spy fatigue or spy anticipation? I have a feeling that Kingsman, Spy, MI, and UNCLE are all doing some of the marketing work for Bond. MI probably stands on its own by now (despite obvious QOS/Skyfall similarities), but anyone who watches those other three is going to think of Bond at some point, because they all feature Bond references, some more blatant than others.

    Hope you are right @dinovelvet. I just don't remember having the same sense of concern about SF's success. I think it was because there were none of the Sony leak, huge budget and script mess issues. It also didn't have SF's 1b BO to be measured against. SP has a much bigger mountain to climb than SF did to be seen as a success and sadly, much of that big mountain was built by it's own studio via the Sony the leaks and EON's decisions re the budget and script issues.

    I'm still convinced it all has to do with the quality of the movie.
    If Spectre is perceived as being very good it will make the money that is needed to regard it as a success.
    If it does not as well as hoped things like "had to much competition" or "the marketing campaign wasn't good" are lame excuses.
    Since Goldeneye, the movie that got the Bond franchise on a new level of success, every Bond movie that came out made at least almost as much money as the one before or even much more. Why should Spectre be any different?

    Dreams are ten a penny.

    Oberhauser is not Blofeld, he just can't be, it would be the most ridiculous thing and make the movie a parody.
    Oberhauser is Bond's childhood acquaintance.
    Either some other actor will be revealed as Blofeld or Blofeld is not in the movie at all.

    I love how the guy to Léa's left is trying to sneak an eyeful.

    Nice Vlog. A bit too short though. Slightly disappointed they didn't include Stephanie Sigman. Still, Léa and Monica look incredible and will be awesome Bond babes.

    I love this shot:

    Okay @Smitty. I think most of your worries are unfounded. And in all honesty, I think they have been strengthened by all the other spy films that have premiered so far.

    First of all. I agree with you that the Sony Leaks are certainly not the best promotion for Sony itself. On the contrary, we saw what happened. Amy Pascal had to leave. Attached to that where the so called "budget concerns". What budget concerns ARE we actually talking about?? James Bond is never short on budget. There was merely a different opinion in the budget size between Sony/MGM and Eon Productions. Barbara, like his dad, wanted the higher budget, Sony/MGM wanted slightly lower. But I really don't understand what the real problem about this is. It WOULD have been a problem if Sony/MGM ordered a very tight less than $100 Million budget. THAT would have been a problem IMO. But that's not the case.

    We should be blessed with this insanely high production budget. And if not, then we should at least recognize that it would not influence the quality of the film in either a positive or negative way. That's what I think was the biggest 'free promotional effect' of this "budget talk". It doesn't help the film, but I firmly believe it doesn't hurt the film either.

    The only thing that worries ME, is the fact that because of this China will again delay the premiere of "SPECTRE". Similar to "Skyfall" back in 2012. But even then, we could expect similar box office gains in China as compared to "Skyfall", which isn't great, but it isn't bad either.

    Regarding the script issues. May I remind you that the production of "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" was troubled too? They actually had to re-shoot and re-write the ending of the film. And on top of that, they started filming with an unfinished screenplay! Look where we are now: "Rogue Nation" is hailed, especially by me, as one of the best "M:I"-films to date. So all these problems can also result in positive corrections. These so called 'problems' can make the production team more focused and sharper, eradicating all or most of the flaws in the screenplay or in the shooting during production.

    Having said that, we talk a lot about "Quantum Of Solace" being influenced by all the screenplay problems and writing strikes. In all honesty? Even THEN a director needs to make the right decisions about things like editing, cinematography, etc. IMO Marc Forster made some bad choices regarding this. Christopher McQuarrie didn't. Despite all the production problems, he still made the right directorial decisions. So why shouldn't we have some trust in Sam Mendes doing the same?? Especially after "Skyfall"

    Lastly: There is no "bigger mountain to climb" for "SPECTRE". Yes, "Skyfall" raised the bar very high, quality-wise and box office-wise. But then all I want is "SPECTRE" to solidify this, NOT forcefully questioning Sam Mendes all the time when the film isn't finished yet. "SPECTRE" in my opinion can not hugely improve anymore, after two great Bond flicks, "Casino Royale" and "Skyfall". What "SPECTRE" CAN do is this: Becoming one of Craig's best three Bond films out of four. Which would be rather unique as opposed to Brosnan's four outings. And on top of that, if "SPECTRE" grosses between $950 Million and $1.3 Billion I am a very very satisfied Bond fan. And trust me, it'll gross more than $1.2 Billion.

    Another lacklustre videoblog. These videos are all a bit obvious and predictable thus far. So far we yet to really see anything that truly excites me aside from the introductory blog by Mendes.

    However, something interesting to note: Within the press release for the videoblog the script is credited to four people: John Logan, Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and Jez Butterworth.

    We all knew that Butterworth was working in some capacity on the film, but most of us thought he was simply a ghost writer or script doctor. He worked on the SF script in a similar way. It sees Butterworth's contribution is significant enough to earn credit this time out.

    The scene on the train gives off a nice 1960s vibe, including the woman on the left with that hairdo. And of course the bottle of "Château Angélus, Premier Grand Cru Classé Saint-Émilion" on their table - straight from CR.

    Oh, and did anyone notice Lea's dress? The fabric hugs her body like a second skin. Sexy.

    Rogue Nation had Christopher McQuarrie, who not only directed the movie, but also wrote the screenplay for it. Spectre has a great director and 4 not so good writers... Btw, they didn't start filming Spectre without an unfinished screenplay as far as I know. They started filming it with a finished but mediocre one.

    @Gustav, I sure hope you're right about SP grossing more than $1.2 Billion.

    Whatever the budget is for SP it's not much bigger than the budget for QoS and we can already see tge differences. To date, CR looks like the most expensive Bond movie in over 30 years and it has the smallest budget of the Craig era. SP already looks like they spared no expense and yiu can see the money on the screen. SP doesn't look cheap and if the movie has the same editing or better than SF, we're all going to be awestruck by this glamorous beautiful looking movie.

    Furthermore, I'm confident SP is going to do much better internationally than SF did, especially in China. The thing to remember is, SP isn't SF or SF2. The cast and crew have said it and we've seen evidence to support it, that SP is a very different movie in which Mendes who dipped his toe into shallow waters with SF has now dived and doing some deep sea dwelling with SP. It's going to be a huge blockbuster.

    Additionally, the responses, reviews and assessments of the spy movies that have been released so far are quite interesting and pose no real substantial threat to Bond. Someone mentioned earlier that these movies have inadvertently acted as a marketing and promotional vehicle to Bond and that is correct. Even UNCLE has the tag line on its posters, "giving Bond a run for his money"and as fun and great as these movies have been its easy to identify their lack when compared to what SP looks set to offer.

    MI may have similarities to SP e.g. the locations but SP so far have clearly used the locations in a very different and what looks to be a more atmospheric way. I think people will be surprised to learn tgat MI won't even enter their minds locationwise when watching SP because tge use of locations are so different.

    Some of the reviews I've read for UNCLE are pretty uneven with their assessments and one of tge main criticisms is Cavill being hollow and having no personality as Solo even though he looks the part, with some reviewers calling the performance forgettable and going as far to recast. Obviously, not every one is of that opinion but that opinion is circulating out there amongst these critics. I bring this up because it's a testament to what Craig has done, been doing and will continue to do as Bond and it should serve as a guideline to so many people here who think just because they see a guy in a nice suit he'd make a good Bond. No. It doesn't work like that. Cavill walks around cocksure in beautiful 3 piece suits and puts his good looks on display and his calling to be the next Bond increases 5 times over and yet, those who have seen the movie, some really aren't impressed. The role of Bond is a much bigger balancing act and I think Craig is going to blow many people away come October. SP is going to be a huge success.

    Yup. Fully agree :-). Those damned crew members are playing with us fans. And I love it ;-).

    Honestly, aside from genre, SP isn't going to be affected by UNCLE, Spy, Kingsman etc, they aren't playing on the top tier BO-wise like SP is. Maybe pre-Skyfall, sure that would make sense, but now those aren't the films that are Bond's competition box-office wise.

    Yup, that was me @DoubleoEgo ;-). It's the perfect free marketing for a Bond film I think. With the release of every spy-film, "Kingsman", "Taken 3", "Spy", "Rogue Nation" and "UNCLE" people are indirectly reminded about James Bond. Just look at their poster designs. And also watch the actual films :-).

    Moreover, I have a feeling that the relatively low PR during this summer, 2nd trailer excluded, is quite smart. Sony/MGM/EON planned this all skillfully. Before the huge spring/summer blockbusters premiered, they gave us one hell of a teaser trailer, very early actually, and several blogs. Then all these big ones premiered, like "Furious 7", "Avengers 2", "Jurassic World" and "Minions". It's quite worthless during this period to flood us with blogs and trailers. Even Disney backed off slightly with their promo-campaign for "Star Wars" during that period, and as of this week is going full-throttle again marketing-wise.

    And now, we recently had the 2nd trailer after these big blockbusters. And now the summer box office is winding down, you'll see we get flooded by vlogs, another trailer and many articles.

    Smart indeed if you ask me :-).

    Also interesting what Sam Mendes said:
    "Both have great mystery, they both have depths. And for that you need fantastic actresses.....Madeleine Swann needed to be soulful, feisty and complicated, and I think it's [Bond vs Swann] a pivotal relationship. So probably she couldn't have been a total newcomer. I needed someone with a certain life experience and maturity."

    Actually, these are very very insightful remarks from Mendes. It reminds me of "OHMSS" when director Peter Hunt needed to have a strong, well-known, established actress to play the part of Tracy. Moreover, it seems now very obvious that Sam Mendes really wants A-listed actors for his Bond films. And in return, those A-listed actors really like to work with a big name like Mendes.

    The Bond franchise has been truly "upped" to new levels when Martin Campbell and Sam Mendes landed their jobs as directors.

    What EON needs to do and fast (for Bond 25) hire a director/writer (as examples to show what I mean: Guy Ritchie/Nolan Brothers/Coen Brothers/Paul Thomas Anderson etc).

    Pre-production should already begin NOW for Bond 25. But I'm afraid it won't until late 2016.

    As you think Guy Ritchie is absolutely not the right person to direct a Bond film, I want to ask this. Do you have a shortlist of favorite directors you'd like to see directing Bond 25....26?
