  • EON and MGM panicked because of Trump's diagnosis. Simple as that. They would have spared everyone if they had just delayed the film indefinitely from the get go. Everyone at the studios sees what the climate is like, so why spend so much money on r…
  • I don't think anyone would be particularly upset if we hadn't been lead on over and over again. That's precisely what's been going on. Now, I know we haven't dealt with a global situation like this since the second decade of the 20th century, but an…

  • I think it would be fair to say that he wouldn't "slit his wrists" because 25 mil is too hard to pass up. I will be very interested to see if that price motivated him to go out with a bang or gave him the assurance to phone it in...

  • I think everyone can calm down, as I think a new rescheduled date would have already been announced. Not to support trolling, and aside from the sensationalist "firing" approach, I think that that some of these posters actually provided some compell…

  • I'll say it again: Barbara Broccoli, herself, has stated that it'll be up to the fans/audience as to how they want their entertainment in the future, and that was in regards to VOD. So, at this point, I really don't think anything is out of the ques…

  • The only answer seems to be VOD. Theaters are clearly not a part of our current reality, and if the whole techno world is based on bloody efficiency, convenience and state-of-the-art gadgets and gizmos, then it's surely not out of the realm of possi…

  • The unique thing is that we're all Bond fans with different views in regards to what we would like to see. I think we can all agree on that. Casino Royale turned out well because it reverted to Fleming. It was a faithful modern adaptation aside f…

  • I'll say it again, but I think everything related to 'NTTD' has been karmic. Bringing the film to fruition has been a roller coaster ride of unprecedented proportions. Finally, when the film is set to have a release date, it's rescheduled, only to b…

  • I'm honestly surprised how production companies aren't prepared for the worst and keep toying with release dates this year. That being said, it would make much more sense had they just rescheduled every film to next year, sparing everyone from false…

  • It's amazing to me how much things seem to have changed at EON since Cubby's passing. How the hell has it come to the point where the screenwriters are lost for direction yet the director who has a vision, with a team, leaves because the principal a…

  • Better to not go down this path, but I'll say it anyway. Maybe Bond indeed, is not for these times. That's why I'm doubtful that Billie Eilish fans have much place going to see 'NTTD.'

  • I love how Billie Eillish's song is perfect for the time we live in because like our times, it's hopeless, lackluster, brooding, apocalyptic, not sexy, and rhythmless. The song sounds as if it were performed by a kid who just survived a nuclear holo…
