Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

The trailer didn’t remind me of Mendes at all. Especially not Spectre, with that piss-colored filter. Here we could actually see colors again!

I completely forgot about that! Hopefully the new director and cinematographer mean we might get a natural look again. Does either Fukunaga or Sandgren have a set style they use for each of their productions?? The trailer looks good colour wise so fingers crossed the finished product will be the same.

I love the trailer, I always do!  So excited about the movie now.  Been too long.

I would hope that Fukunaga and Sandgren are flexible enough to shoot to the benefit of the story and visuals and the trailer seems to exemplify that. I also would think that they would want to take full advantage of the incredible depth of field and ultra high definition of the 70mm IMAX cameras utilized in some scenes. The scene on the ice in Norway looks to be visually stunning (imagine that on a 60 ft wide theater screen) with the way the small amount of colors really pop against all the white. The other thing is whether or not the scenes shot in IMAX will be shown in the taller IMAX ratio or if the IMAX version of the film will be entirely formatted in the 2.39 to 1 Panavision ratio that most of the film was shot in. Sangren was DP on First Man and the scenes shot in 70mm IMAX were shown in the expanded aspect ratio in IMAX theaters but Fukunaga did not direct that.

Bautista's in Dune which was shooting between March and July and then he started filming "Army of the Dead" in July, so I doubt we'll see Mr. Hinx in NTTD, which is sad because he's one of the few good henchmen of the Craig-era and one of the few good things about Spectre.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

To expand on what Gassy Man said in the previous pages, I'd like to say that I found the action seen in the trailer in this interesting because it felt a lot more "classic Bond" than what Mendes ever did shots wise.

For example, the armrest.
Mendes in the Skyfall lodge scene used the sound and the guns deploying as a means to show what Bond did in the car while we actually get a good look of it here, we never got to see it in Skyfall
https://i.ibb.co/cgn5r6T/Screenshot-2019-12-07-at-16-35-25.png
like we used to in Goldfinger or before it was even used in Thunderball
https://i.ibb.co/FDvw20Y/Screenshot-2019-12-07-at-16-43-45.png

The foot cams classically in Bond films have either been misused (being too short)
https://i.ibb.co/b2jXT0n/Screenshot-2019-12-07-at-16-40-04.png
or just to extend an action, like it was done in Die Another Day or Quantum of Solace
https://i.ibb.co/7Xp6kyd/Screenshot-2019-12-07-at-16-38-56.png
one using it to show that time is a factor
https://i.ibb.co/f14n2B9/Screenshot-2019-12-07-at-16-51-41.png
and the other using it as a means to show his efforts it were ultimately hopeless.

Here, every shot we've had of the armrest or the footcam is like the old ones where we're gonna get payoff out of that action and we know what's going on.
https://i.ibb.co/3yd9JLR/Screenshot-2019-12-07-at-16-33-51.png
GoldenEye did the same thing when Bond was shifting gears there. Exposition and pay off, the way I'd do it if I were a director

At least that's what I think by a few janky shots if I were to try and justify the why of it if I was in the director's place ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

a reasonable rate of return

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

Actually, I find the "sameness" of the trailer kind of reassuring.  A lot of the news that has been coming out has had people hitting the panic button. . ."James Bond is NOT going to be 007!  It's a woman of color!," etc., etc.  The trailer simply says, "This is a Bond film."  That's all it knows on earth, and all it needs to know.

Yes....sometimes there is the ring of underlying truth in the absurd. Lets face it, this is the 25th "official" Bond film, not to mention the incredible number of other spy/action films that Bond has spawned over the years. From every silly cheap Bond knock-off to Bourne and the MI films there hasn't been much that hasn't been done. I think the issue at hand is not so much what they are doing but how well it's done. For example, the car chase in SPECTRE was a snoozefest while the PTS car chase in QOS IMO was top notch and quite good (an example of where the quick cut edit style was actually used to good effect). Every Craig film has a had a terrific hand to hand fight scene (something DC really seems to excel at and the current EON fight coordinators take good advantage of) which is a Bond tradition going back to the train fight in FRWL. Not to knock the MI films, but for all Cruise's death defying real stunts, the fight scenes, while well done, always appear overly choreographed and a bit too "cartoonish" while DC's Bond fights are very convincing and much more grounded in reality. I do like the sardonic humor that seems to be evident from the trailer and hopefully that is reflective of some better writing overall for NTTD.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

Gamesradar.com has a trailer Q&A interview with Fukunaga. It was published four days ago, I'm amazed I hadn't seen it before. I can't see anything spoilerish in it. Some interesting cryptic comments, that's about it.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

I think the interiew is interesting. Clearly Fukunaga at least tried to get Grace Jones for a camoe in the movie. And Ana des Armas' role was created and written for her.

EoN is officially looking for great poster designs for NTTD

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ET2HVpSNWxk


Makes them look a bit uncreative and desperate, but maybe gives us the chance to go back to Bond‘s glory days.

Let‘s not hope a minimalist design will make the cut.

Great as they are, Robert Macginnis' posters look too old fashioned today. Here are a few fan made posters for SPECTRE that leave the official one behind:

I'm sadly not an artistic person, but I say good luck to anyone wanting to try their hand at this competition. I think it's a wonderful idea, and something most needed. I remember people suggesting it on this forum not that long ago. Maybe they do read the forums  ajb007/martini
Don't be afraid to give it a try, and design whatever you feel. Sadly, you can't post any of the work online anywhere until after the competition. But I'm looking forward to seeing some stellar artwork. I know I've been blown away by the fan art so far!
