    Looks are very subjective. It's not worth focusing on it at this juncture. As long as the man can still do the job, that's all that matters. Just don't go breaking any knees and screwing up the film on account of it again.

    I agree @bondjames, I was just pointing out that Craig 'in real life' and Craig Bond seem night and day sometimes. From those pics, anyone who aren't very familiar with Bond would think Craig's take on Bond would be similar to Moore in TSWLM. When you watch those trailers for Logan Lucky, I think Craig could have pulled off some OP/TSWLM style film with relative ease.

    Of course, the actor and the character are normally very different things. He definitely isn't playing himself as Bond. Like many actors who may do many serious roles/characters he seems to be a fun dude. But the real people and what they are interested in or good at in acting are a different matter. He might not even be interested in doing quite a Moore-ish Bond, or might not be very good at it if he did. He does have comedy chops, too (not at all surprisingly), but there must also be good reasons why the more "serious" actors (role/character/movie choice-wise, not their personalities) rarely do comedy stuff. How one is as a person and how they work are such different things that I'm not convinced he could do Moore "with relative ease". I suspect it looks easier than it actually is.
    Dear EON / Purvis & Wade,

    Bond 25, Pick it up 2 years after Spectre, no mention of what happened in Spectre. Quite simply Bond does not wish to discuss or bring up the past. Just have MI6 operational, and Bond in service and on a mission. No back story, no Team MI6 to give high profile supporting cast their time on screen, just give us a CR type adventure and drop a bombshell twist at the end of it. Thanks.

    Kind Regards

    Sir Hils.

    If only...
    B) Madeline gets kidnapped or killed and Blofeld escapes prison. Huge twist at the ending maybe Madeline was bad all a long or something crazy.

    I sure hope not, sounds very off-putting to me.

    We might not be hearing from DC as much as we thought. According to The Hollywood Reporter, there is no press junket planned for 'Logan Lucky'.

    "Logan Lucky reviewers did not receive a press kit, which typically highlights the back story of key participants in a project, and only were given a bare-bones list of credits as they appear in the film. Also unusual, there is no press junket planned, despite the fact that the film is receiving a wide release on Aug. 18 and features a high-profile cast of movie stars that also includes Katherine Waterston, Riley Keough, Katie Holmes, Seth MacFarlane and Hilary Swank.

    A representative for Bleecker Street, the company that is releasing the film, declined comment.

    I'm fairly certain this has something to do with Dan.

    If that's the case, then presumably he wont be promoting 'Kings' either.

    Given an announcement doesn't surface between the two films, it's quite possible.

    If true that's a big blow to LL and Kings financiers not to have it's biggest star promoting it.

    It might be part of Soderbergh's experimental release plan for LL.

    I don't think it has to do with DC. After all, there are others, who could press tour. The story with the writer existing yes or no might be an interesting PR on its on. Touring doesn't help that much. It never helped a bad film, so this might fly on its 100 RT bonus (so far) all by its own

    He's not the star of the film or the biggest star in it.

    This was always going to happen if you just do your research.

    You think Channing Tatum is more famous than Dan?

    Of those three: Villeneuve. Please.

    I'd love it but he's too busy and maybe too associated with other franchises now.

    Villeneuve would be a great choice. Surprised they havent approached any of the action directors like Gareth 'The Raid' Edwards, or Edgar Wright. The car chases in his new film Baby Driver would stand him in good stead.

    Sadly yes. At least a more bankable star.

    He's not more bankable in Bond films.

    Quick question regarding the thread:

    I'm attempting to give the front page a bit of a facelift by color coding. Any thoughts on how I should go about doing this? I've started by bolding each piece of "official" news (you'll notice the single bolded news item under July 2017).

    FWIW, Yann Demange had tapped David Holmes (also a frequent composer for Steven Soderbergh) for the music for '71. I don't know if he is doing the music for White Boy Rick. But Holmes would be a solid choice for the music for a Bond film. No problems there, for me.

    Hey hello! Welcome newbie ;-).

    Personally, I hope they go for Daniel Pemberton.

    David Holmes would be a great choice, his Lets Get Killed album is a classic and has a great JB theme arrangement on there, plus his score for the Oceans films are good.

    I'll settle for DA back but if Holmes got the gig that would be much more exciting.

    Pemberton would be really great. U.N.C.L.E and The Game were both brilliant.

    I am not familiar with Demange or Mackenzie (though I've seen Hell or High Water), but know Villeneuve's work quite well. The latter can scale up or down, do realistic or high art grand.

    If these three really are the finalists for the director's chair, can we glean what direction EON is headed in with the next film? I'm surmising that it will be more down to earth and gritty. Thoughts?
    ---

    Also, regarding no press junket for Logan Lucky, does that mean anything? How irregular or regular is this in the industry? It applies to all the actors I'm surmising? Presumably they can still go on talk shows and promote themselves.

    Given Kings is having its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, I am assuming that some press will have to be done there.
