Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

I'm of course very happy to hear there will be more filming in Norway.  The inclusion of the Atlantic Sea Road is certainly not a stand-in for Austria. While the Atlantic Sea Road is confirmed, Rauma is still just a rumour. Rauma (a municipality) sounds like a wonderful choise. It's also not very far from I live, about three hours by car.
The area includes:

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

Filming at the Atlantic Sea Road will almost require filming from helicopters, it looks like the helicopters won't be onscreen. The helicopter company will use two helicopters, one for the camera and one for transport and backup. the filmig will include flying at high speeds and at low altitudes.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

Those locations are all incredible and worthy of a Bond movie. Really hope they give Norway the credit it is due, rather than just have it doubling up for Austria ajb007/crap

I still long to see Bond return to some mountaineering, either in his spare time or part of a mission. Maybe next time..

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

It's still possible the scenes by the frozen lake is supposed to be Austria, but there's no way the Atlantic Sea Road will double for Austria.

Amazing views.  ajb007/martini

The train pic reminds me of the Skyfall PTS, though.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

The Atlantic Sea Road looks predestined for a Bond picture. If anything, I hope they use it properly. Has a bit of a Licence to Kill vibe to it also.

The name is Walker, by the way.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

I hope the Atlantic Sea Road will be filmed in sunny weather or in a storm, but they'll have to take what weather they get.

Could definitely imagine a car chase on there in poor weather with waves crashing over the road and the cars speeding though them. Probably nearly impossible to time that right on film though.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

It's possible to time, but then you need to have the cars, drivers and film teams on standby for weeks or even months. As long as the skies are fairly clear the Bond team has to shoot since they have littel more than a week. an interesting solution can be to shoot it at night, since summer nights are fairly bright.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

Ah yes, an Atlantic road, that's not going to work for landlocked Austria... Local knowledge, always a good thing.

I have questions about this Japanese info that has recently come to light.
https://www.cinematoday.jp/news/N0108580
https://twitter.com/JB007_news/status/1 … 9565622273
Apparently Fukunaga has more to say about Madeleine Swann, and there will be more Q/Bond interaction and his cats and it will be an independent story.

My guess is, and why I thought Norway might be doubling for Austria later in the film, after the first act, is that it occurred to me that maybe there is something at the house/Scandinavian villa we see in Madeleine's flashback/dream that is needed to find or foil the villain. That way, we learn more about Madeleine. With 13 characters and Bond apparently going on a mission with Leiter and a kidnapped scientist etc, one wonders how you can shoe horn in a good character arc for Madeleine.

I still think Q could be the kidnapped scientist and if Q is to have more interaction with Bond, then that would make sense. I can't really see how you could include Q's cats, maybe Moneypenny will be looking after them in the office?

And after those new Jamaican Bond house pictures, is it actually Lashana, an MI6 agent, who persuades Bond to leave his cosy Jamaican existence to find his pal Q? Do they encounter Leiter and Magnussen's CIA agent during the mission, in Cuba?

But, what does make me question the Japanese article (apart from the terrible Google translation) is the claim that the story is independent and new. With Madeleine Swann in it?! And we've seen pics of a (young?) 'Rami Malek' with a rifle used by Spectre in Spectre in the March Norway filming, so there is as much connective tissue between Spectre and Bond25 as there was between Casino and Quantum. I remain to be convinced anything in the Japanese article is true.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

I never believed for a second that Norway was only going to be used for 10 minutes on screen (or whatever increment of time the the highly scientific cost/screentime calcualtions produced  ajb007/wink  )

I’ve always wanted to visit Norway, and I’m excited it will probably get it’s due to this film.

412

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

I think it's likely the frozen lake scene and the Atlantic sea Road are in separate parts of the movie and plot, simply because of the weather. Filming on the Atlantic Sea Road in June will only show a bit of snow on the distant mountain tops. Obvious, but it had  to be said, I guess.

413

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

This is exactly the location I‘d want to see a car chase with Bond driving through the fountains of water whipping against and covering the road during an epic mega-storm...

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

Absolutely, filming a storm scene on that bit of road would be fantastic. But it will take wind canons, CGI and al sorts of trickery to create a storm. They're not gambling on a storm happening just when they're filming.
I think the story about filming in Rauma is true. The frozen lake and the Atlantic Sea Road (ASR?) are not in the same sequence of scenes, and there has to be some scenes to go with what they shoot on the ASR. Rauma is in the same region as the road  and has some of the best locations on the whole coastline. It makes sense.

Indeed, highly scientific...

It is true that interior dialogue scenes can be filmed more quickly than location stunt sequences, so it is a bit of an average.

Quantum filmed for almost 5 months (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0830515/lo … ming_dates) and has a 1hr 40min run time giving a weekly filmed scenes increment average of 5.8 minutes. That is how amazingly scientific it is.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

Jamaicans working in all areas of Bond film
http://jamaica-gleaner.com/article/ente … -bond-film

Stephan Chang of the Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO) explained to The Gleaner that the workers on the movie set are basically grouped according to the requirements of the job. “There are several layers of jobs on set. Working on the actual production side are the lighting, sound and rigging crew. we have persons operating cameras, and there are also extras on set,” he outlined, debunking claims that Jamaicans have been given only menial jobs.

While it was revealed that extras were needed for a party scene, Chang was unable to say if any big-name Jamaican actors had landed a role in the movie.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

I can't say by looking at the landscape, but perhaps the weather is a clue. The text says "Saturday scouts". Most of the country didn't have rain today, and Rauma definately didn't. It looks like Scotland had more rain.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

So, apparently Bond and Paloma, Anna de Armes character, are having relations in Bond25.
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/a … nd-25.html

For me, it just adds more to the confusion about what role Madeleine will have. Fukunaga's comments about wanting to know more about Madeleine and Lea Seydoux's comments about her character not being a sex object in the film and it being an emotional role and story, I'm wondering if Madeleine will be seen briefly in flashback to be able incorporate that into an entirely different, kidnapped scientist story, but how do you explain the Norway filming with the Lea-look-a-likey in 1980s clothing?

Or, are they going to portray Bond as a philanderer, who after a while, needs other women. Or are we going to get jokes about how he was only doing Paloma for the information? But, then, Paloma is supposedly a character created by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and she's supposed to be leading this #metoo charge in the Bond universe, so, I'm thoroughly confused about where this plot and its themes is heading.

Is this why people are reporting a shitshow of a script, because the story is all over the place? What I can't understand is how they have so many characters, and how they can expect to do justice to their character arcs in 2h 20mins.
