Apparently Adele is being lined up to do the theme song for Bond 24. Just wonder what everyone thinks about it? I'm undecided, Skyfall was a class Bond song and I'd like her to do another. Undecided whether it should be straight after Skyfall though

Please God let it not be true. Skyfall was like a Bond theme conceived in a test tube, an ersatz Bond theme of badly strung together cliche that almost echoed past glories. Lets move forward please.

Re: Bond 24 Thread

Adele doing another Bond song would be allright, just not 2 in a row.

Now, they only eat rat.

Adele couldn't pronounce words correctly to save her life. I like the song Skyfall, but the way she sang it killed it.

So I hope this isn't true - I'd hate to think she'd become the neo Shirley Bassey of bond songs

If it aint broke, don't fix it.
Adele, Sam Mendes, Ralph Finnes, Ben Wishaw, maybe even Albert Finney could be in Bond 24.
Love it!!!

I've also read about it. In my oppinion, Skyfall was one of the best and memorable Bond songs in years. If her return would mean another class Bond song, it's fine with me! (I can understand the two in a row thing being a bit to much though)

Re: Bond 24 Thread

I think after the Oscar and BAFTA wins, there would be far too much pressure
on Adele to write and sing another theme so soon. Mabey after a few Films.
I do think she is very talented and it would be a real feather in her cap to
do two theme songs back to back. Just IMHO it would be a mistake.  I can
see the Crap the poor girl would have to put up with if it didn't get nominated
or was considered not as good as Skyfall.

Re: Bond 24 Thread

I don't think it would be a bad song, all her albums are good. They're not my type of music but I accept they're good songs. However, I think all her songs are pretty similar so the song for Bond 24 would be a lot like Skyfall which probably isn't a good idea. Those who like Skyfall the film would love Bond 24 to be as good as it but we don't want a carbon copy with just a few tweaks here and there ajb007/smile

Re: Bond 24 Thread

I don't understand where the idea that Bond 24 and Skyfall will be the same is coming from. The end of Skyfall made it clear to me that it's actually going to be a lot different!

Firstly, we're going to have a new M. There's a change right from the start and it will be interesting to see Mallorys take on things after 7 films with Judi Dench's M. On top of that, we'll presumably have Naomie Harris as Moneypenny in office this time - I don't see her running about like a Bond Girl again AND Sam Mendes got so much praise for his work on Skyfall! Yes if he directs Bond 24 it will have a similar style but how is that a bad thing? If anything he's proved to us all that it would be a good thing! Skyfall has of course put a lot of pressure on the series to come up with another great film to me the end of Skyfall gave me hope. Big hopes! Craigs Bonds so far have been unconventional and the final scene of Skyfall seemed like a clear set up for a good old classic. If anything, we're probably going to get the most 'different' Bond film we've had in 10 years - because it will actually be conventional again.

Now, they only eat rat.

Re: Bond 24 Thread

I only meant the same in terms of quality. My point was that we wouldn't want two films straight after each other which were too similar and it's the same with the theme song which is what I think will happen if Adele does it again.

Re: Bond 24 Thread

MY WISH LIST FOR BOND 24

1. Gunbarrel at the start
2. Massive PTS to establish plot, with a hook to later in the film that we don't realise at the time.
3. Title sequence complete with great song, I don't mind Adele returning but Dame Shirley would be even better.
4. Bond and Moneypenny flirting and mentioning, even if only briefly, something from Skyfall...maybe Bond getting shot or their close shave in Shanghai.
5. Briefing in Ms office, Q in attendance with one gadget a la Moonraker.
6. The mission...Bond back on skis or underwater would be great.
7. Felix Leiter.
8. Finale.

Right now tear me to shreds.  I love the DC era as you all know, but all this Bond out on his own, out for revenge, personal stuff has been done now. I just wanna see him on a straightforward mission, sent by M for queen and country!

I would also like this very much. Three films in has been a long haul to get 'back to business.' In the manner that the end of Skyfall sets up.

Re: Bond 24 Thread

According to the official James Bond Facebook page:
Sam Mendes Will Not Direct The Next 007

“It has been a very difficult decision not to accept Michael and Barbara’s very generous offer to direct the next Bond movie," said the Oscar-winning director. "Directing SKYFALL was one of the best experiences of my professional life, but I have theatre and other commitments, including productions of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and King Lear, that need my complete focus over the next year and beyond."
Bond's next director has yet to be decided, but producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli had nothing but praise for Mendes: “We thoroughly enjoyed working with Sam. He directed our most successful Bond movie ever, SKYFALL. We would have loved to have made the next film with him but completely respect his decision to focus on other projects and hope to have the opportunity to collaborate with him again.”

Now, they only eat rat.

Re: Bond 24 Thread

During the Oscars, my girl and I were discussing how awesome an Adele / Shirley Bassey duet would be for the next movie.

44

Re: Bond 24 Thread

Expect Bond 24 to adhere to the sort of exploration of Bond's emotional character that Skyfall embraced. Screenwriter John Logan would not divulge plot details, but he did reveal to the Financial Times, "Fleming's courage in showing Bond's fear and vulnerability and depression was really interesting and something that a modern audience can accept. I think Skyfall demonstrated that they want more layers to that character. And those are the layers that Fleming wrote."

can still put in some good action / stunts and Babes.  ajb007/lol

I'm against the idea of a duet for a Bond song. History has proved that it doesn't work. Another Way to Die was an absolute shocker.

I'd rather Dame Shirley Bassey sing the new Bond song, alone.

Personally, I like backstory and character emotion. It makes the films, and Bond in particular, more interesting and deeper.

Re: Bond 24 Thread

Thats too bad about Mendes. I'd rather have a director who can be trusted because there's always the possibility of somebody putting out another QoS or DAD where you get the feeling the director had never seen a Bond film before.
