Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

The new lair photo slightly reminds me of the Dr. No ending scene with Bond and Honey. Just to say... ajb007/wink

I agree the two sets have clear simularities.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

Farout this is starting to feel a little bit like a slight Dr. No remake

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

I dooubt it's a remake. I suspect it's more a case of echoes of DN, at least visually.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

I gotta admit, there's more and more clues this film is a Dr No remake and less and less clues they will be finally adapting You Only Live Twice.

Totally agree.

I REALLY don't want a DN remake, whereas I REALLY desire a Garden Of Death story. I don't know why they have to re-tread old ground when there's still unused stuff ajb007/crap

This COULD be a japanese (!) mask from the traditional No(!)h-theater.
Like this one:

https://i.postimg.cc/cKvW2zp9/noh11.jpg

The mask is that of a central female character of Noh-theater, called Ko-omote.
This character portrays a girl of fifteen or sixteen (!), the youngest woman represented by the masks from the Noh-theater, with purity, beauty and virginity. "Ko" in Ko-omote means pretty or lovely.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

Collider reported that Ben Whishaw said that NTTD is, "Daniel’s last film as James Bond, so I think what they can look forward to is a kind of summing up, I guess, of all of the previous Bond films that Daniel’s done. There are strands from all of the films in it, kind of reaching a conclusion."
https://collider.com/no-time-to-die-dan … ond-movie/

While Spectre hamfistedly, some might say, linked the previous films and their villains to Spectre with pictures of them posted as a trail for Bond to follow to find Blofeld in the ruined MI6 hq, NTTD could weave more subtle elements of the past films together. A Casino Royale strand was the betrayal of Vesper and now apparently Bond thinks Madeleine betrayed him.

Another strand of Casino was Bond's concern about his job and him wanting to quit, which he did in Spectre and perhaps NTTD will deal with Bond's ambivalence towards his spying work?

And in Casino, and Quantum, a strand was who to trust. Again, trust is an issue in NTTD, from trusting Madeleine to Bond being the only person Leiter can trust.

In QoS, the CIA is working with Quantum and one Sony Spectre early script email leak was that the CIA is working with SPECTRE.

A strand of Spectre and Skyfall was how intelligence is changing and agents are old fashioned, but it's not clear how that would manifest in NTTD.

A strand of Spectre was how Madeleine was the key to learning more about Spectre and the trailer would suggest that will be the case for NTTD. Another strand of Spectre was how Blofeld interfered in Bond's life. Will Blofeld's ongoing contact with Spectre from prison and his link to Madeleine's past ensure that Blofeld does that again?

Spectre linked all the villains together, but it wasn't explained how Quantum fits into Spectre. Maybe that will be explained?
A strand of Spectre was Bond's familial link with Oberhauser/Blofeld. Will Oberhauser-Blofeld actually be an early clone of the 'original' 1946 DOB Blofeld? Is that what he meant by his mother's bloodline? And why does the Blofeld in the Wakefield prison computer screen shot have two good eyes?

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

Possible evidence that Q is going to die in NTTD.

Ben Whishaw tells Kevin 'Clerks' Smith in an IMDB video at 3mins 35secs that he is; “done now. I’ve done the three [Bond films] that I was…contracted to do.”
https://www.imdb.com/video/vi2959916825

Whishaw also earlier in the interview says that Q gives Bond a gadget in NTTD. Maybe he means a plane?

The Mail on Sunday is the latest to comment on the runtime length. It says it knows that the run time is currently 2h 54mins but could be 3h.
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/a … -time.html

The highest scene number pictured has been scene 253, which we saw a clapperboard picture for while they were filming on the Italian coast, and that equates to 2h 57mins. If that is not the epilogue we normally get, then the film could easily be 3h excluding end titles.

The mail on Sunday also claims the running time has grown because pages of script have been added during filming and it claims filming was chaotic. Ben Whishaw has also told Collider filming was: "quite improvisational...sometimes quite chaotic".

That would fit with the possible (near) end scene of Bond, Madeleine and Nomi at the rocky cliffs in the dingi... ajb007/confused

I found that hard to believe. We know they filmed at the Faroe islands, and this was speculated to be for an island that would be in the disputed Kuril islands, and so the rocky beach is adequate for that. Is there a need for a volcanic island?

The Daily Mail story also says that the lair is a WWII bunker, but why would you have that on a volcanic island and why would it have Russian signage, as we know that inside the lair it says 'restricted area' in Russian in one of the official pictures?

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

I could see someone in the writer’s room thinking it’s clever to have Dr. No (the first main villain that Bond killed first in the movies) to kill James in this one...

I wonder if this is what they mean by changing everything. I hope not but I will remain excited and optimistic until we see the movie.

Great trailers so far though!  ajb007/martini

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

Is this Q watching them leave the transport plane in the glider?
https://i.postimg.cc/Mf7Npst3/q.jpg

My theories about the third act are all a bit out of whack now, as I thought Bond left London with Madeleine in the Vantage and then Nomi catches up with him after it all goes wrong. But it seems, Bond's request for a plane from Q is dealt with officially and Bond leaves London with Nomi and apparently without Madeleine and without the Vantage. You can see Bond wearing his N.Peal top in the plane so that is their insertion into Safin's island. I'm thoroughly confused.

It looks like NTTD will have many DN references, but I don't think Safin will be No and it won't be a remake

Yikes! That's a massive clue. I'd put money on him being the doc now. Or maybe he's Dr. No's grandson  ajb007/lol

Or it could be just a random circular vent in the roof, something not designed to be a reference to anything?

How could that not be an intentional nod to Dr. No? Do you think they just did same thing by mistake?
