Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

I thought it was a bit odd that filming had "wrapped" but then I saw all the reports online but may be they are a bit mistaken as it appears that filming has continued at Pinewood. May be just a wrap party for Italy? I would assume that Craig will be out and about promoting Knives Out by mid November and returning to loop dialog during post production. I wonder if they have shot footage for the title sequence yet?

Isn’t it getting a bit close to release to shoot much more footage?

Spectre finished shooting about three months before release, so no.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

Last night my wife and I were at a Toronto Symphony Orchestra performance of James Bond: The Music. It was fantastic btw.

The conductor who apparently talks with Ms. Broccoli quite regularly whenever they do anything Bond related, said that Elton John was in talks to do the theme song for NTTD.

Thoughts?

Pussy Galore: “My name is Pussy Galore.”
Bond: “I must be dreaming.”

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

I think he was contacted before for Bond, even put a song forward ?  although
it wasn't used.

“I didn’t lose a friend, I just realised I never had one.”

Here it is:

"Shoot Down The Moon", 1985. Apparently Maibaum & Wilson originally planned for Zorin to bring down Halley's Comet (due at the time) in AVTAK, but decided against it. Elton John and Bernie Taupin had written this song during that period.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

I think Elton John can do a good job, but I'd rather have someone like Lana del Ray, Lady Gaga or Michael Bublé do the title song.

Trailer speculation! trailer speculation!

21 May 2012 Skyfall teaser trailer
UK release date 26 October 2012
Days between 159

27 March 2015 Spectre teaser trailer
UK release date 26 October 2015
Days between 214 days

18 October 2019
NTTD UK release date 2 April 2020
Days between 168

NTTD passed Spectre's date on 1 September.

If NTTD releases its trailer 159 days before the UK release date, like Skyfall, that will be 26 October 2019. I can't see any big movies coming out at that time, but Naomie Harris' Black and Blue is out that week.

For three of DC's films the BBFC teaser trailer approvals came a week to ten days before the trailers were released.

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.

Avengers Endgame had several hand drawn posters, so we still get the occasional hand drawn poster for big budget movies..

I agree, classic Bond poster art was as synonymous with the series as the Barry music and the Adam set design. It is perverse they should be avoiding the type of poster their own series is so well known for.

I can see the old style posters were outrageously sexist, with Connery holding his gun due north like an erect phallus and all the scantily clad lovelies clinging to him like he's their harem-master.
But theres gotta be a way to update that look without continuing the sexism. There's four leading ladies in this film! They could easily do a similar composition of figures without the harem implication!

I think its just another way the present generation of filmmakers is deliberately distancing itself from their own history, and consequently leaving it up to imitators to carry on the tradition.

I looked at a list of movie releases this fall and I was surprised by the lack of big blockbuster type movies. Did the list I found lack some films? I thought the production companies want to have some big movies out for Christmas?

Star Wars doesn’t qualify as a big movie? Perhaps the others don’t want to go up against it.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

Ah … that one wasn't on the list I saw for some reaason. I thought it looks strange. Damn Movieinsier.com. After looking at Collier.com I see there is also Midway, 1917 (Mendes …), 6 Underground, Ford vs Ferrari and The Current War.

I actually don't think the old style posters were outrageously sexist. I do think, though, there's a place for classically composed, old-style posters which feature male and female actors, such a this poster for Blade Runner 2049. Guns are still evident and the sole female is not at the apex, so maybe I'm behind the times, but I really like it.  ajb007/lol

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

Some of the old posters can be seen as sexist and I don't think there can be Bond posters like that again.
But I think TLD was the last had drawn bond poster as far as i remember. I don't think it's sexist.

Here is an example of a current hand drawn poster, so I think there's no reason Bond shouldn' have one:

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

That's a fan poster and it's definitely not hand drawn.

6,421

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

Maybe not. But the official posters were in the same style and the style is much the same as hand drawn posters. That is my point - if Avengers can use posters in that style, so can Bond.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

I think tom Jones would sound better with that particular song, it’s ok but it’s not very catchy or hooky, I’ll tell you this though, if the official song does go by the name of ‘no time to die’ it better be good..

..I’ll be soooooo tempted to do a better version..     ..watch this space..
