  • I've always found Spectre to be a lazy title too. And I've never thought the non Fleming Brosnan era titles were that bad at all really. Tomorrow Never Dies I don't mind but Tomorrow Never Lies would have been so much better. Die Another Day I actually like and I enjoyed how they worked it into the film.

    I still think Quantum Of Solace is the worst title by a wide margin. It doesn't sound sexy or dangerous or cool. It sounds weird and pretentious. It's Fleming for the sake of it imo. And the filmmakers didn't even have the balls to commit to it so they had to add a literal meaning at the last minute that made the SP retcon worse: imagine if instead of the last minute hamfisted "I told you everything you wanted to know about Quantum", the mysterious organisation stayed unnamed. Then we'd have no confusion. They could have easily just been Spectre. If they had to use a Fleming title for the film I would have rather Property of a Lady. That would've fit. I don't really like that one either but it's better than QoS.

    Imo, the only decent Fleming title left is Risico. Outside of that they should leave it. I really really hope the little nod in SP means we'll never get a Bond film called The Hilderbrand Rarity. Chapter titles and phrases are fair game though. Shatterhand would make a brilliant title and I'm sure they will use it eventually.

    Risico is literally just risk.

    On the topic of chapter titles, maybe they'll use "Blood and Thunder".

    That would be a great one.

    An obvious thing to take on for titles is a foreign language name or phrase, the short story "Risico" is one example.
    Another is the Casino Royale chapter title Rouge Et Noir.
    Though that one would attract the usual complaint that "Bond has gone rouge again".

    Daniel Craig is Ian Fleming's James Bond in "The Pizniss of Much Risico" :P

    SmallTalk

    Filmed simultaneously with B26: ChitChat



    (But let's be honest, there will be no SmallTalk and no ChitChat. That's the trouble with the world these days. No one takes the time to do a really sinister interrogation anymore.)

    It would be the greatest thing ever if it turned out Bond 25 was actually a Hannes Oberhouser spin off movie

    I do not think that word means what you think it means.

    It would be the greatest thing ever if The Avenging Silence turned out to be Bond 25.

    Still feeling out this new way to use the word "greatest".

    That's already the title of a novel by Stendhal: Le Rouge et le Noir.

    Feel kind of bad now. Kind of.

    Found an article yesterday regarding B25 being potentially shot at Pinewood Atlanta Studios (i.e. Bond set in the US!) and sent Pinewood an email asking if there was any truth to this story. (I didn't exactly buy it, because come on, this site couldn't know that 15m before filming?!) Seems like the site got a slap on the wrist.

    Changed it from: "Eon Productions recently set a November 2019 release date for the yet untitled James Bond 25. Little else officially has been confirmed about the film, although the picture is planning to shoot at Pinewood Atlanta Studios, which are owned by Eon."

    Then: "Eon Productions recently set a November 2019 release date for the yet untitled James Bond 25. Little else officially has been confirmed about the film, including whether shooting locations will include Pinewood Atlanta Studios (Bond films are traditionally filmed at the main Pinewood facilities in the United Kingdom)."

    (Editor’s note: This story has been updated to correct that Eon Productions does not own Pinewood Studios, it is only headquartered at Pinewood in London, and it is unknown whether the film will use the Atlanta Pinewood facilities. ArtsATL regrets the errors.)

    The best way to kill rumours is to tackle them head on. Voilà.

    Interesting...

    Thing is, many of Marvel's films are using Atlanta as a film location because it's cheap. I've a good friend who lives there and oversaw the set of Captain America: Civil War as it was being shot there. So, is it perhaps because it's cheaper to film there the Bond crew are heading that way?

    Of course, this could purely be a speculation.

    Generally I don't like the look of Bond movies when they are shot in the US so I hope it's not true. Surely there's still more exotic locations that are affordable.

    Maybe they are looking to cut costs?

    Would be great news! Also makes it more realistic the USA will become a main on-location shooting point :-). Although DAF to me is a rather bad film, the cinematography in Las Vegas -City of Lights- is still stunning.

    I can't see it being called Shatterhand, really. Shatterhand only means something to us, Bond-fans, and I'm sure EoN is/will be aware of potential marketing issues when deciding on the name. In German-speaking countries a title like that would only envoke "Winnetou and Old Shatterhand" associations and nothing more, as Karl May is a national treasure over here.

    I'm hoping for an enigmatic Fleming YOLT/LALD-style phrase-title, personally. I'm a bit tired of the single word S-titles.

    No idea what you're on about with the German thing but I can't really see it working either.

    If they cast Waltz then we all know Blofeld is back so to then use the name Shatterhand is totally redundant. It would be a bit stupid to have Bond wandering round Japan saying to himself 'Who on earth could this mysterious Dr Guntram Shatterhand be?' and all the audience shout back 'It's Blofeld mate because we've all seen Waltz's name on the poster.'

    We don't know if there will be any mystery surrounding "Shatterhand". It could be the name of an operation like Thunderball or a nickname Blofeld already earned somewhere when the movie starts.

    You mean like when they called the last film Spectre, and then let Bond wonder through half of it trying to figure out what it was (even though he was told it was called Quantum by Green two films ago and should have realized this was the same operation when he ran into White again), only for its name to be revealed instead as 'Spectre' by Madeleine? I honestly wouldn't put anything past them.

    Shatterhand just doesnt have a bond feel to it, it sounds more like a benson book or something. I doubt this will be the title
    More like a Gardner book (i.e. Brokenclaw).

    Goldfinger.
