    What does that Foto mean? I have no idea.

    Here's the full caption for you, @boldfinger, to put it in context.

    Our Production Designer/Artful master of living for the day, Mark Tildesley— commented to me once that being a director must feel like dying of a thousand cuts, because of the constant stream of questions one must field. There’s not a minute on this job that isn’t scheduled, and even during a shoot day, in the hours before call, between takes and setups, and after we wrap there’s always a line of dedicated and hard working department heads hungry to prep our next sequences, no one sleeps on this kind of job. So sure it’s hard, but it’s still the best job in the world and I’d never disrespect the hardest working cast and crew. We’re all in this together. 🍀 As for my PS4 relationship, if my RDR2 progress is any indication, it’s been stunted at 63% for months and if anyone spoils the end for me before I wrap on B25 I’m going to be pissed.

    Isn't he the director and he doesn't know the ending wow are things that secretive?

    He means the ending of Red Dead Redemption 2..

    He doesn't know the beginning or the middle, either.

    Seriously though - are you joking, or.....? It's hard to tell. :))

    RDR2 is Red Dead Redemption 2, a videogame for the PS4 that Fukunaga is evidently a fan of.

    Just sent Cary a message on Instagram telling him to ignore the tabloids. I told him us Bond fans believe in him!

    Didn’t expect a response or anything but not even a minute after I sent it, he “liked” my message! How cool??

    Cary Joji Fukanaga didn’t direct Red Dead Redemption 2.

    Wouldn't mind watching a Fukunaga Red Dead Redemption live action film. He'd probably be up for it, if he's a fan of the game(s)!

    Some NEWS:

    The financial paper This Is Money claims this is 007's new Aston Martin in Bond 25, the Valhalla.
    The car will be used in Bond 25, alongside with the V8 Vantage and the DB5.
    Announcement expected this week. (*)

    14929846-7153327-image-a-23_1560850690275.jpg

    (*) That's what the article says. I know nothing at all.

    Certainly a different looking AM! Have to say I am a real fan of the DBS's. But to be honest I just love AM's full stop. Roll on the statement if it is coming?

    Honestly, this being just a tweaked version of the Valkyrie, which is this one:

    2019-aston-martin-valkyrie.jpg

    I'd rather they had gone with the new Vanquish, pictured below:

    aston-martin-valkyrie.jpg

    A re-tweaked version on the one above and, IMO, a much prettier car, in the same vein of a McLaren, or Bond's lotus in Esprit S1.

    Just have it in BRG or gunmetal, or even white, and we're on track.

    I really, really like this guy.

    There are no words that capture how much I love Cary Fukunaga right now.

    Police chase is very welcome, stil earlier picture from pinewood what look like same set there was not realy much space. But possible some of Jamaica double wil be used for that.

    I don't think that it is connection to TLD. Due to embargo and other trade restictions Cuba is occupied by Soviet cars. And police must ride also on this cars.TLD tells the story in Russia, but B25 on Cuba.

    I'm not talking about a story connection, but a simple vehicle connection, i.e which Bond films feature police Ladas. TLD being the most significant and well remembered, then perhaps GE.

    Nice, Portugal should have the same date, then.

    So, is this a good indicator of the production's real status? One hopes so.

    Aston Martin Valhalla photographed on Bond 25 set
    NINTCHDBPICT000498587972-e1560905633538.jpg?w=620
    https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/9326466/daniel-craig-bond-film-007-foot-heals-aston-martin/

    It looks as though The Sun are now writing positive articles on Bond 25. It does seem clear to me that the photo above is from Pinewood as no other pictures of the Valhalla have been sighted of the car in that colour with the proper AM badge indented on the hood. Plus it's in that silver colour that EON love. Id say it's 100% from the set at Pinewood.

    I'll need a little convincing on the Valhalla. Aside from it's terrific name, it looks a little sporty to me. Something perhaps a 12 year-old boy would put on his bedroom wall. It doesn't quite have the elegance you'd associate with Bond. But I'm up for a change.

    Also, great to see Mark Tildesley and Cary are working well together. His work on Phantom Thread and High-Rise was really good.

    Most likely, although could of course be a Cuban Embassy.

    I like that it’s something different. The DB5 is a classic of course but I’m ready for something new.

    Whilst the Aston Martin Valhalla's role in BOND 25 is purely speculation right now, this bullet catcher got to carpool chat and drive some real Astons with Mr Ben Collins - Daniel Craig and the Bond series stunt driver who has some curious favourite Bond cars and films to share...

    THE BOND STEER – SECRET CINEMA & ASTON MARTIN take this bullet catcher to 007th gear

    Whatever is on AM's mind, that car doesn't look like an Aston Martin, apart from the grille. It might as well be a McLaren or a Le Mans Prototype car, in any case nothing you would see on the road. I really wonder how this thing will be sensibly included in the script.

    Nothing easier than that. It stands around at some facility Bond is visiting. Bond Needs a car. Chase.

    The fancier the car the better. That one Looks a bit like a batmobile, but being a Bond car would immediately ground it. That´s what I love so much About Bond films, a lot of stuff can be Comics stuff, but Bond makes it more realistic than any Batman Begins could ever do (and I quite like the latter) :-).
