I would like to see Bond return to Japan (I know a lot of people on here would also like to see that for a Garden of Death). I also read about the initial plot for YOLT, where a Japanese mob release a deadly gas into Tokyo. A future Spectre plot? Have that as the main plot, the Garden of Death as the finale of the film (and the Blofeld character)?

I'd really like to see a return to Japan.

Re: Future Bond locations

Garden of Death is perhaps the strongest Fleming story thread left unused (the brainwashed 00-agent in M's office being the contender IMO) That's the way the Blofeld storyline should end  ajb007/bond

Re: Future Bond locations

Here is a Volvo comercial from a road not far from here. The lady speaks my dialect, so I sound like her (but with a really manly voice  ajb007/biggrin )
This stretch of road looks was filmed in the autum, so it looks like an improved version of Scotland   ajb007/shifty  , but it can look greener or whiter depending on the season. This would be really good for a car chase  ajb007/bond
The hotel is an old tourist hotel that was frequented by the German kaiser and other royals.

The road is closed in the winter, but I'm sure it can be re-opened for Bond.

Re: Future Bond locations

The Bailong Elevator (Chinese: 百龙) (literally Hundred Dragons Elevator) is a glass elevator built onto the side of a huge cliff in the Wulingyuan area of Zhangjiajie, People's Republic of China that is 1,070 feet (330 m) high- (from wikipedia)

Re: Future Bond locations

Perhaps another elevator fight, a bit like DAF? Imagine a Bond/Hinx fight where Hinx has a baton or something else that breaks the windows?

A fantastic idea. But would they want to film in China? Or is that okay now?

159

Re: Future Bond locations

I think so. The Karate Kid remake, Mission Impossible 3 and some other movies have been shot there.

Great location there!

Yes a great location ,seems to have a touch of AVTAK  .

Re: Future Bond locations

I agree with Matt: I live in NYC and I love it, but there is nothing 'original' about it anymore. unless they use the new World Trade Center for the first time in a movie, including the beautiful new station, which looks like it was designed by Ken Adam.

I wouldn't go either to Chicago (popular movie location) or Washington. Actually, skip all of North America. For some reason it just doesn't always work for Bond, except for New Orleans in LALD in my opinion.

My options:

- Barcelona
- Madrid
- Lisbon
- Nice, France
- Oslo
- Osaka/Kyoto
- Brussels
- Dubrovnik
- Budapest
- Abu Dhabi
- Costa Rica
- Alberta, Canada
- Edinburgh
- Seoul

Re: Future Bond locations

I just saw a TV program about the canals of Kerela, India. I think it's time Bond returned to India and the houseboats and the area looked great. I can imagine Bond seducing a woman or meeting an informant on a houseboat like these.

Re: Future Bond locations

Australia - C'mon, this one's obvious. Would love to see some scenes in the outback
New Zealand
Indonesia
More of South America, he hasn't been there often. Peru, Chile, Argentina
South Africa
Canada - The second largest country in the world and he's never been there

These are the main ones I want.

Here are some other, more specific ones I want:
The Garden Of Death (which would mean a return to Jaoan)
Easter Island
The Grand Canyon
El Castillo in Mexico
Petra, Jordan

There's probably many many more, but I'll leave it at that for now

Re: Future Bond locations

It's not strictly speaking a location, but I'd like to see a passenger drone in a future Bond movie. Bond movies have a history of showing cutting edge and/or unusual transportation such as Concorde, hovergraft and hydrofoil. It looks like drone taxis and other passenger drones will be in regular traffic in just a few years. I doubt the companies making the drones will allow action scenes involving their vehicles, but a transport scene can be made interesting by showing a passenger drone.

Re: Future Bond locations

I've "always" wanted Bond to go to the Arctic or Antartica, possibly even for real. If Bond goes there I'd like the Soviet-era "antarctic cruiser" called Kharkovchanka to be used by Bond or possibly the villan. It's a huge land vehicle especially designed for use in extreme cold and it has bunks, a kitchen, radio room, navigation room and more.

The Kharkovchanka is 28 ft × 11 ft × 13 ft, weighs more than 7700 lbs and it can handle -94 degrees Fahrenheit. It also has a kitchen, bunks and a navigation room. It would flatten the car in your picture  ajb007/biggrin

Re: Future Bond locations

#24, have you seen Billion Dollar Brain?
I was thinking of you as I watched it, as most of the film is set in your corner of the world (a bit to the East: Helsinki, St Petersburg, and Latvia and various frozen wastelands in between)

The villain uses a fleet of very similar vehicles to attempt an invasion of Latvia across the ice, having calculated the ice can hole the weight of an individual vehicle when spaced properly.

Spoilerthe Soviets just fire some missiles at the ice and the invasion fleet disappears without a trace

it also reminded me a lot of Garners third Bond novel Icebreaker, I wonder if Gardner was inspired by Billion Dollar Brain?

172

Re: Future Bond locations

I haven't seen The Billion Dollar Brain, but I'veseen the twp prequels and I liked them. Sounds interesting. I actually did learn how to set charges to blow up ice during my national service.
