    I don't mind a dark looking Bond. FRWL was very dark looking.

    Indeed, the darkest, "grey-est" and weather-wise the "coldest" ones....have been known to be quite good, no :-P? FRWL, OHMSS, to name a few.....

    OHMSS darkish, even greyish? Naaah!!!

    Obviously you forget the part "weather-wise the "coldest" one". Although SF for me, weather-wise, also felt very cold. Very much like a Dutch winter in Scotland: Below freezing, no snow, but at least lots of frozen water, lakes....

    Yes,but you forget how immensely exotic Istanbul was looking to these folks living in the 60ies.

    "Immensely exotic"? I found it beautiful, but even filming in Istanbul did not happen during mid summer. In case you forget...

    I only watched OHMSS the other day. Don't remember it being greyish.

    Ditto FRWL, but haven't that in a while.

    It's not. It's got a great palette, a lot of blues and harsh whites against the warm browns and rich oranges. Mixed with the crushed black it's quite vivid and beautiful. Probably one of the best looks in the series, I would say.

    I very well know that. So was Transylvania in Dracula. The point is: FRWL was far darker looking than DN. Or most of the Bond movies that came after.

    Very interesting...And Star Wars 7 did complete filming on November 2nd. Also, he said to stop tweeting until December. Bond 24 starts shooting December 6th :)

    Some very interesting news today. British actor Stephen Fry has been advised not to tweet until December (and Bond 24 starts shooting December). Many are speculating that this is because he may be appearing in Star Wars 7, but filming wrapped up early this week. Could he be playing a part in bond 24?

    Hmmm, interesting. He surely has the looks of a Bond villain :-).

    I saw the Fry article regarding his quitting Twitter and I have to be honest I assumed it was because he was visiting an area of conflict, Syria or the like, where he would become a high-profile target. I didn't, and don't, see the Bond link.

    But his exact words were “Closing down on twitter while filming. In a place whence I've been advised it is safest not to tweet. See you in December."

    I don't see the link either. We are pulling strings here. I love Stephen Fry, he is an amazing entertainer, a genuine humanist and for the record the best thing about that stupid second Hobbit movie, where he played a surprisingly sinister character. But I don't see him as a Bond villain.

    The guy is a TV personality, being 'filmed' is what he spends most of his life doing. Anyhow, who knows? A friend of mine suggested he'd been snared by operation Yewtree and was going to ground, which is probably as likely as him being in B24, but there you go.

    I saw his tweet and I don't see the connection. He was advised not to tweet because of where he is going (I guess he might be tracked or targeted) and not because of what he is doing.

    How would you react if they announced HANS ZIMMER as the composer of the movie?

    Yawn. Much better composers out there. Such as.. Michael Giacchino, David Arnold, Marco Beltrami, Mychael Danna, Harry Gregson Williams and Christopher Drake would be my ideal choices to compose a Bond score.

    Im a little confused with the location. Will Bond 24 have a snowy location?

    Bond 24 will shoot in Morocco, Rome (and possibly other parts of Italy) and Austria. The shooting in Austria will take place in the Alps during the winter, which means there will be plenty of snow in the movie.

    It depends. Given Hans Zimmer's previous scores, I would react negatively. However, a week ago, Zimmer announced he has permanently abandoned his previous "bombastic" style of soundtrack orchestration in favor of a subtler, spartan approach. Supposedly, "Interstellar" will mark the debut of Zimmer's newer, subtler style.

    Hence, who knows what Zimmer's (hypothetical) Bond 24 score would sound like.

    This guy is usually the assistant editor working with editor Lee Smith: https://twitter.com/godbolt Someone on twitter should ask him whether he will be working on Bond 24. :)

    Umm... I watched Interstellar yesterday and its score is one of the most bombastic movie score I have ever heard.

    Interesting...

    http://spinoff.comicbookresources.com/2014/11/03/hans-zimmer-on-his-interstellar-leap-of-faith-and-scoring-a-new-batman/

    http://www.filmmusicsociety.org/news_events/features/2014/110614.html

    ^ Here are the Zimmer articles discussing how Interstellar's score was intended to be "incredibly personal," "handmade," "nostalgic," and eschewing "the action drums, the propelling strings," etc., to match the film's theme. In other interviews, Zimmer claimed his Interstellar score would be toned down and subtle (in comparison to The Dark Knight trilogy).

    However, if Zimmer's score for Interstellar is just his usual bombastic self -- despite his avowals otherwise -- I wouldn't want him to score Bond 24.

    Zimmer ' s score for Interstellar is amazing and easily his best work in years. There are a couple of tracks that are bombastic but in a good way that adds a grandness to emphasise and accompany what's on screen. He did an amazing job on that movie and I think if he ever did a Bond film, he'd up his game for it.

    Yikes. Subtle or not, Interstellar had the most annoying score I´ve heard since The Golden Compass.

    Hans Zimmer is capable of the best and of the worst. He tends to be repetitive in his motifs but when he's in an inspired mood we get something like his Holmes scores which are nothing short of brilliant. If he were to be announced as composer I would hold my opinion until I heard the score ;)
  • i'm still hoping that Thomas Newman will come back for a second round. His SF score is one that has really grown on me over time. The problem I have with Hans Zimmer is that he seems to score every single franchise/big blockbuster film out there. Of his most recent scores I really liked was from Ron Howard's RUSH. I am sure Mendes wants Thomas Newman but I am not even sure thats a given. I read somewhere that Newman had a less than pleasant experience scoring SF (not sure if this is true).

    To add local flavor to the "Bond house" in Obertilliach, production crew is relocating unused and derelict wooden shacks from the area.

    Go and see it. However, be warned it's not a typical scifi blockbuster. It's an entertaining study of love and humanity with brilliant performances all round. It's an ambitious movie that's more of a personal project than a studio vehicle.
