Re: Locations

And now, some speculation: (Possible spoilers!)

It seems like Bond and Hinx arrive to the Alps in some kind of black ops plane. They fight and the plane crashes into a barn. Why does Bond get up on the glacier? Since a snowmoblie chase has been reported and not a ski chase, I say he goes up there to eat at the restaurant. Who goes with him? Lea Seydoux or Monica Bellucci are good guesses. The restaurant seems like a good Place to take a woman. It looks classy and even I think the view from the tables looks great  ajb007/shifty 
Then there is a snowmobile chase down the mountain. I think this sounds likely.

It reminds me of OHMSS

Re: Locations

What we need is SPECTRE having a sprawling command centre or headquarters of some kind that's somewhat similar to Janus' Cuban facility in size and a dark reflection of the MI6 headquarters featured in the Craig films so far, a place bustling with SPECTRE minions. Silva' abandoned island and mainframe chamber were grand, eerie locations but were too empty.

Re: Locations

Some may wonder if I'm still bitter that the SPECTRE locations ended up in Austria and not in Norway, others know me better  ajb007/shifty
Of cource I'm bitter!  ajb007/mad

I understand a major reason Austria won out is the lack of spectacular buildings on top of mountains and a cableway leading to it here in Norway.
There is a restaurant in Loen under construction now, and there will be a cableway leading to it. Look at the pictures of how it's planned to look - it would have been perfect!

Re: Locations

Let me repeat myslef (again) - why, god, wasn't this finished in 2014 and not in 2017?  ajb007/crap

Animation of arial ropeway with Gondola to mountaintop Resturant Hoven (and exsisting nearby rope bridge.)
This would have been perfect for SPECTRE!!

Sorry, I've been working in the nearby village in the past few weeks, so I'm reminded of this every time I step outside.

Does it ever snow at that location? Would make a good modern Piz Gloria.

Re: Locations

It's snowing there right now  ajb007/smile
I was looking up on that mountain only yesterday, and it was white and beautiful.
But I didn't see it as Piz Gloria - I pictured it as the  Hoffler Klinik.

Re: Locations

That is a stunning looking place n24, again it makes me wonder why I've never visited your country! I think I will have my lunch in that restaurant one day  ajb007/smile

It was either that.....or the priesthood

Re: Locations

I was in London last week. Took some pictures of some Bond filming locations, specifically the National Gallery at Trafalgar Square from Skyfall and the nearby MI6 "Hildebrand" safe house across the road from there that was seen in Spectre. Really cool to be at these places in real life where they filmed scenes for both movies...
