    Ejector seat is an ejector seat to me. No 'nuance' there, and I reckon it'll get used
    at the end of the chase.

    That would seem to fit with earlier reports that
    Bond parachutes onto a bridge

    You do the math!


    It doesn't mention that the "parachute from a helicopter" marks the end of the car chase. It just says there will be a car chase and a parachute jump.

    What else would it mark? We've seen where it starts.

    Ha ha. This really is going to be Broz territory.

    Nah, this is the terrirtory where, during the course of several films, we're introduced slowly and with great care to wunderful new gadgets. Not just at the start of CR using an exploding pen.

    I like to compare this with the Connery era. First film no gadgets, 2nd film only a small suitcase ("not exactly Christmas ins't it?" ;-)), then in GF more full-throttle with a gadet-laden car.

    With the Brosnan-era, they immediately kicked off with exploding pens and, although not exactly a gadget, a big tank chase.

    "The road towards gadgets" for the Daniel Craig films have been build up more carefully over a course of four films. Off course one could bring in that Aston Martin DB5, but for me that's still more of a 50th anniversary reference. On the whole, I like the approach in the Craig era.

    And even then, I still don't think a possible ejector seat in SPECTRE will on the whole, when watching the entire film, not feel like a "Brosnan artefact".

    Exactly. This movie will be far less gadget laden, than TND, TWINE and DAD.

    There didn't need to be 'a road towards gadgets' and I never thought there would be, at least not on this level, if I'm being honest. It disappoints me.

    Nut its a "fun" factor, many have been missing after the welcome approach of being more gritty and realistic of the last films. IMO, if done properly and not too over the top, it will be indeed that -fun.

    Map is almost completed now (thanks to Zekidk for helping):
    Pic 1 "Palazi" The chase will start here.
    2nd pic: Machine Gun" in the titles. Gadgets it seems.
    3rd: Reads "Phone"...?
    5th pic: "FIAT"
    7th pic: Vatican entrance
    11nd: Ponte Sisto
    [/quote]
    Tough to be sure but some additions:
    3rd: Phone... ...alongside
    4th: Car (jump) down
    9th: Wall ride
    11th: Aston into river

    One more:
    6th: "Second phone call" "Vine street"

    Really not sure for those but might be:
    1st: ...Fountains
    3rd: First phone call & (villain) alongside
    8th: Steps
    10th: River & (ambush)

    It's just been confirmed that they will be filming at the Ponte Sisto bridge on the 23rd of February from 16:00 until 04:00 of the 24th of February

    I'm in a cafe by Ponte Sisto with some of the second unit next to me now. The bridge is being cleaned right now and the graffiti is being removed.

    I saw the car filming this morning too on the road leading up to the Colesium. This wasn't part of the chase scene, so it was scenes of Bond driving through the city in the day.

    Then tell me....what do you expect. So far I think it's too early to be disappointed. You need to see the entire car chase first. The whole bloody 5 to 12 mins...or whatever length/screentime this chase has.

    We don't have Bond in a tank destroying the entire city
    We don't have Bond on the backseat of a car "remote-controlling" his car
    We don't have Bond flipping a car with an ejector seat
    We don't have Bond ice-wheeling an Aston Martin

    So far, it seems, that this Rome car chase turns out to a good old-fashioned car chase that is dependent on driving skills and that can be compared to other great car chases, like the ones in "Ronin" and "Bullitt".

    On top of that, probably Bond's car goes into the Tiber river at the end of the film, but he probably saves himself with an ejector seat/parachute seat. I think that's how you should conclude such a great car chase, and it adds a "Bond touch" to it. But it's by far not a "Brozzie chase".

    "Bond will also parachute from a helicopter onto the historic Ponte Sisto pedestrian bridge."
    We know from reports, and recently the map, that the car chase will end at the Ponte Sisto bride, with the DB10 ending up in the river.

    How can the chase end with Bond parachuting on the Ponte Sisto if it also ends with the DB10 ending up in the Tiber? I'm confused.

    This thread is moving into spoiler territory now. Please use the spoiler tags ladies and gents. Its not that hard is it? Details of where and how the chase will end, and what stunts it will contain, is spoiler information. It should be in a spoiler tag! >:P

    It's safe to say the helicopter won't appear in the movie.

    I think it'll be an ejector seat with a build-in parachute. Like we saw in GoldenEye, when Bond was captured and released himself before the missiles could hit. But the actual parachute sequence....that needs to be done with a helicopter off course.....which won't be shown in the film

    You really do need to read my posts more carefully, I said that 'I don't doubt' the car chase will be great. My gripe is purely with this
    Ejector seat moment and whatever else Mendes chooses to throw in, because there can be no doubt there will be other 'gadgets' on display. This is what disappoints me. I'm guessing the chase will be shit-hot, the choreography, the framing, it'll all be top-notch, which is why I'm at a loss to understand why your big finale is yet another nod to the earlier films, something that the Brosnan films were known for. That's where I draw a comparison.

    In fact, I'm being harsh on Brosnan, because a lot of their content was original if a little derivative.

    Probably, Bond taking on the interior of the car - scene 35

    What do you think?

    Personally for me, the GE classic DB5 vs newish Ferrari was a great scene because one of the cars was a classic and the other modern. The contrast was half the fun.

    I agree with some comments here that these new cars are somewhat reminiscent of DAD, in the sense that they are somewhat over-modern and streamlined. It's always nice to throw a little twist into it with something classic.

    Presumably that's not the intention of this scene though.

    I do agree with you @bondjames. We're in Italy, home to arguably the greatest designers and manufacturers in history and we're short-changed due to what is essentially product placement. I can take Bond in the DB10, although I still think it's the kind of car Wayne Rooney would drive, but the breadth of choice you'd have if the villain was in an Italian classic is mouth-watering.

    Now that would really have been something to savour. Or even Bond nicking a classic Italian Lambo Muira or De Tomaso Panterra (or......wait for it.....a classic white Lotus Espirit!) that could have been parked outside. Pity they did not think this through.

    I like a lot of what I'm seeing except the idea of a car with a parachute.

    Should be good times ahead though and of course, won't judge until I've seen the film.

    Oh, yes. Especially if he'd stolen it. Man, that would've been insane.
