Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

This is looking great! All the character posters are in the same style: water blue "007", brown background and the actors in dark blue. Q and Madeleine are the only ones who're unarmed and the ladies are more heavily armed than Bond. What sort of pistol is Ana de Armas holding?
The photo of Bond and Madeline is also good, especially Lea Seydoux looks great in that business outfit. I've never seen a promotional photo from a Bond film where Bond and the Bond girl seem at odds with each other. Madeleine seems to pull herself away from Bond.
The guns and this photo - are they trying to tell us something?
It's clear the PR campaign is going up a gear now.

What pistol is the goldeneyed Paloma holding? Looks like a nickelplated ppk.

Craig and Ana have crappy S&W PPK’s.

His holster is for a Sig, so that won’t fit  ajb007/lol

Perhaps they didn't have any Walther PPKs nearby for the photoshoot and havd to improvise, like Connery and the air gun in the promotional photo for FRWL?  ajb007/lol

I like the nickel for a change, but why does she have Bond's signature gun?

I noticed the oversized holster and figured they just put the PPK in Bond's hand because it's his iconic gun.

This probably doesn't belong in the thread, but I'm interested to hear what you think are the mechanical shortcomings of the Smith & Wesson-made PPK.

I think Nomi should have a more modern gun, perhaps the Walther PPS, instead of Bond's signature gun. The SW pistol will look like a Walther PPK to almost eeryone in the audience, so for movie purposes it's a Walther PPK. People will think "Look! Nomi even has a Walther PPK, just like Bond", not "it's a Smith & Wesson, not a Walther!".

Well right now she is being marketed more like female Rambo than female 007. She even has the knife on her chest.
Meanwhile Paloma is being marketed as what I would think of a female version of Bond. She wears a vesper dress, has a PPK propably on a thigh holster. Could be a bait-and-switch, although she is probably a femme fatale.

I previously owned one and it would not take certain brands of ammunition without jamming. So that is one definite shortcoming.

Is there a chance Bond is holding a new Walther PPK? I know they have retained the elongated beaver tail from the S&W run.

To the general public it's a Walther PPK, and I'm not sure I like it.

I took that statement of Signature gun, as in SKYFALL PPK/S-ignature.  Just realised Shatterfang probably meant ‘signature’ in a different context.

A very natural mistake to make.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

The handguns could just have been used for the photo shoot and not what is actually used in the film. With regards to Nomi, it wouldn't surprise me if she is portrayed as more than a bit of an overly aggressive blunt instrument, reflective of a younger, reckless Bond.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

I believe it is the same guns Paloma is dual wielding in the teaser.  The smg seems like a distraction from the ppk so it won't be so obvious.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

The bike jump already has me worried. I think just about every Bond movie for me with a bike isn't a good one. Never Say Never Again is probably the only one I like but that's because it's a remake of Thunderball. Probably my favorite Bond movie. And Never Say Never Again has Kim Basinger and Barbara Carrera. I've posted about Never Say Never Again before in someone's topic around here.

I was curious if that bike stunt was real and spoiled a bit of that Aston Martin scene. We'll see if they have that in the trailer tomorrow. If anything, it seems like we might be in for one of the biggest or longest Bond action sequences ever. But I've never watched fan footage of filming before.

What exactly about the bike jump or just the presence of a bike in the movie has you worried? Is it just the fact that you think all previous Bond flicks with bike in it turned out bad? What about SF? That was highly acclaimed and also featured a motorbike chase in the PTS.
