Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

There is a VERY long tradition of characters in films wearing clothes because they look cool, not because they're appropriate for the weather or climate. Case in point going back to 1981 - Indiana Jones' magical leather jacket. Light enough that he can wear it in the sunny, hot desert or a humid sweltering jungle, but warm enough that he can wear it during a snowstorm in Nepal...

When I got online a while back, I found this news story on my home page:

https://currently.att.yahoo.com/lifesty … 39996.html

Fans outraged by the new poster!  I eagerly read it, thinking there might be some mention of good ol' AJB.  Nope. . .every single comment is from Twitter.  Sigh: I'm old enough to remember when the outrage over Craig's casting made news, AJB and the other sites were prime news sources.  Of course, Twitter didn't exist back then, but, still. . .

I love one twitter comment: This poster just screams “James Bond just discreetly walked out of a brothel at 6am”.

The teaser poster IMO is disappointing and nothing special, but in this day and age of Twitter, Instagram, etc people love to express their outrage over even the most inconsequential things in the most overwrought ways they can conjure up. I would have to say that the folks who post here, albeit generally very disappointed, have been relatively even keeled about the poster. EON's marketing people generally know what they are doing.... I'll be interested to see what it looks like full size and backlit in a theater lobby.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

Is anyone really surprised by the lackluster poster? I've said before how poor all of the Daniel Craig posters are in the past. It's no surprise at all with this new teaser poster. But this sort of thing is what works to get the larger modern audience in theaters. Just a big picture of the main actor.

What is surprising is that the James Bond series is known for some of the best illustrated posters in movie history. Yet we can't even get an illustrated teaser poster for Daniel Craig's movies.

At least there is unofficial fan art. Which is way better than what we are getting officially.

Because hand drawn art was killed by computers so we get lazy simplistic photo ops of Bond standing with gun in hand. No one is crazy about those, but at least Bond was confident instead of confused, and at least he was holding a gun.

I was so pissed by the first teaser poster that today I took a few hours off and made my own version. Same idea - just a photo and a logo, tell me how you like it.  ajb007/martini

Avengers Endgame had several hand drawn posters, so we still get the occasional hand drawn poster for big budget movies.
While I've enjoyed Craig's bond films (to varying degrees), I hope for more tranditional films from the next Bond actor. Hand drawn posters is one of the traditions I want back.

I like it. Much more 'engaged' looking Bond.

Agreed  ajb007/martini MrZareba's poster is much better.

I saw that, too. And you can say what you want about the quality of The Rock‘s movies but they sure know how to successfully market them!

Scott Z. Burns Receives Variety Creative Impact in Screenwriting Award at Mill Valley Film Festival
https://variety.com/2019/film/spotlight … 203362492/

Next up for Burns is writing “No Time to Die,” the 25th installment in the James Bond franchise. Even for a guy who helped write a “Bourne” movie, the project marked a thrilling benchmark in his career.

“It was being able to throw in with a group of really talented people on a franchise that had a huge impact on me,” he says of the process. “I mean, it’s a dream come true to have grown up in Minnesota watching James Bond movies, and then you look at your laptop and you’re writing the name Bond and then writing dialogue underneath it. If anybody would have told me that was ever going to happen, I would have never believed them.”

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

Is it just me or does No Time To Die have a slightly shorter/more efficient shoot than last time? It basically shot from May to early October, whereas Spectre was December to early July.

Yes. Consssssiderably.
