  • I'm an American as well so I will have to wait for my screening in New York. I can only assume that the US gets a much later release date for Bond films in retribution for a little revolution we started a few centuries ago!
  • I'm amused at how Mendes didn't want two shots of Craig walking towards the audience with his gun raised in SF, but was cool with Eve mentioning two car brands in her first lines of dialogue (in a very product-placement sort of way )
  • If Spectre turns out to be a terrible movie, but the GB is at the beginning, then it will still be a better film than DAD
  • I don't know much about Sam Smith but I have heard him called the "male Adele" -- now the song that is stuck in my head is Adele's voice in Sam Smith's body singing Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" -- except with the chorus "The Writing's on the Waaaaa…
  • There you have it, ladies and gentlemen!
  • Fandango is currently saying that the nearest theater that is showing Spectre near my location (New York City) is in Milford, Connecticut. So... I guess I'll wait!
  • Thank you! I guess Fandango still has 24 hours to decide if they want to alert me of the ticket release date if they get around to it...
  • Hang on -- I am confused abour the ticket release date for the US. Is it indeed Tuesday the 8th? If so, at what time? I have been watching closely for this news but perhaps I missed it. As far as I know, 007.com only mentioned a gradual rollout a…

  • It's my understanding that Kleinman (or whoever is the main title designer of a Bond film) designs the gun barrel sequence --- how do we go about reminding him and Mendes to put it at the beginning of Spectre?

  • I would be fine with Arnold or Newman returning. I feel like Arnold gets a bad wrap sometimes. I loved the score to CR; I prefer it to SF, actually. I was actually surprised that Newman got the Oscar nomination, as it didn't stick out as Best Sco…

  • Actually, I take back my earlier comment. The SF score is growing on me now that I'm listening to it more. Plus, there's more Bond Theme in the SF score than the QOS score, at least. I'll take that as a significant improvement.

  • Wow. I like it a lot. I'm curious as to how its theme will fit into Newman's score. I feel like YKMN had some distinct melodies; whereas the 90-second clip features the James Bond Theme heavily.
  • I'm so excited. The new Bond theme sounds spectacular, too.
  • It's not so much that it has/needs a specific role... Take a look at its appearance in GE: it had no impact on the plot, and Bond ended up getting that BMW anyway. It's just very enjoyable. Yeah, they can't have it in every movie (unlike, I wou…
  • Generally, I would say "no." But, with one exception: I think having that yet-to-be-revealed sequence when Bond confronts Mr. White would have been a good post-title thing. Other than that, I'm not big on it.
  • That beautiful car will never get old, in my opinion. It's a Bond icon!
