They were arguing. The caterer gave them one of two options to choose from, chicken or ribs. Craig wanted Chicken because its healthier, Cary wanted Ribs because they're delicious. Craig was throwing around that he's Bond and without Bond theres no Bond movie. Cary said he's the director and he has the last say. They told the caterer they would decide what they wanted to eat after they shoot the next scene.

The chef, who served in the UN Peace Keeping forces before switching careers, prevented a bloody altercation by serving his special "Chicken Ribs" when the filming of the scene was completed.

Maybe it's because I'm more of a Marvel fan right now and everything works like a good oiled machine in Marvel Studios but the production of Bond 25 looks like a big mess from the very beginning... Even before they started shooting. I'm not a fan I was few years ago but still it's sad to see that Craig's tenure might end on a very low note.

To be fair, EON has had its share of external trouble (studios bankruptcy, rights disputes, et al.). But they haven't been running a tight ship, either.

We'll see how the movie ends up being once we watch it. After Spectre, not keeping my hopes up, but there's always a glimmer...

I mean, it's not as if there are no precedents for great movies having a disastrous filming...

I agree entirely. Many good and great films have difficult births. Also nonsense to assume friction from those photos. Seriousness yes, but that not neccessarily a bad thing. I'll reserve judgement. What is worrying is that the knives seem to be out (reference intended :-)

Of that of which we cannot speak we must pass over in silence- Ludwig Wittgenstein.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

I couldn't get the Mirror article to load, but if it said Fukunaga and Craig were arguing on the set, I'm fine with that. History is replete with directors and stars who didn't get along but produced great films. At least it shows they care about what they're doing. I got the feeling that the creative people slept walk through Spectre.

Maybe Craig has just abbreviated his name to "Fuku" and others have mistakenly believed they were arguing? Just a thought....

More complete utter made up nonsense.

I remember watching a documentary about a local paparazzi photographer. He basically said he took the photos then made up a story to suit what he had in front of him , and the papers would lap it up.
They are obviously not getting any proper info from anyone...

Creepy, evil, and bloodthirsty go a long way in forming a good Bond villain.
While the actual physical stuff can be almost secondary, Malek is a young guy and getting into shape and looking formidable shouldn't be that difficult for him. Playing Freddy Mercury was a pretty physical role. A good facial scar always helps too.  ajb007/martini

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

I got the impression that fitness and muscles  wasn't an important part of his preperations this time. He will change his physical appearance in the film, but in a different way than spending a lot of time in the gym.

I had one wonderful glass of Bollinger at Orlebar Brown and a very smooth gin and tonic at Sunspel. Much less than at the last Bond Experience event!

There's no question that the Marvel machine is an efficient one...but I'm not going to dismiss Bond 25 right now anymore than I would have dismissed CR a year before its release date, based upon the press coverage.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

Bond 25 should re-introduce the big battles of the series, know what I mean? The last Bond was caught in the middle of a battle was in the Living Daylights, so we've gone almost 10 films without it when they used to be a pretty big staple of the series. What do you think?

I was never that bothered about the battle scenes to be honest.

I just don't think the big battles we've seen in Bond previously would really fit in a modern day Bond film.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

They always end up cutting away from Bond when he’s doing the most important stuff in the battle and we just want to watch him.

I think a big battle or battles would help bring a sense of a big geopolitical threat to the world, which has been missing from the franchise during DC's reign.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

I miss the big raids from the old days. It's a tradition in Bond Movies and not something we'll see in Mission Impossible or other spy franchises. The tricick is to do it in an interesting and  new way and make sure Bond has an important role to play.

I'd love to see a SBS raid on a ship, oil rig or coastal fortress where Bond has to save someone, stop a bomb from going off or get the main villan  ajb007/bond

Thinking about it, if they hadn't tried to make SP so personal, the finale would have been an awesome opportunity to do a larger raid on the old MI 6 building.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

Good idea! the SP finale was weak, and a commando raid on the old MI6 building maight have worked better.

Always thought a good pre-title sequence would be some kind of terrorist attack on a new Royal Navy aircraft carrier where Bond is present (naval uniform of course!)

Skyfall felt like their post-modern answer to this - commandos stage a climactic raid on a lair, but the dynamics are flipped so that it's the villain's team laying siege to Bond's (understaffed and underarmed) lair.

For some reason, so have I  ajb007/smile

I remember when they were casting Bond for CR some members here wanted the new Bond to be presented to the press on a an Aircraft carrier. I hope they do it next  time, now that the Royal Navy has HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales.

But then everyone here would complain that it’s ‘like something out of Call of Duty: not Bond!’ like they always do. A lot of you guys have very tight parameters on what’s acceptable in Bond, and it usually seems to be ‘must be something I’ve seen before’.
