interesting, then, that they chose to emphasise that.
I shouldn't worry though, he's a moody one, our Daniel, not really the smooth diplomatic type.

Yes, especially Moore and Brosnan were much better "salesmen".

I have recently read the GQ interview with Daniel Craig and I must admit I was hire surprised with his response at the end of the interview when he was giving his feedback on the movie after watching a private screening himself.....”I think it works” he said pausing on every word. It’s hardly a ringing endorsement of the movie and quite underwhelming. You would think maybe he would have said something a bit more positive such as we’ve done a great job this time or I’m happy with how this one has turned out, it was a fitting end for my last movie etc etc? Anyone else think the same, could be just be purposely underplaying it?

I was a little taken aback by the lack of enthusiasm as well. He did say SP was "SF x10" which in many ways he was right but maybe now hes more keen on just letting audiences decide before making any bold claims. He seems pleased enough that this is is final film over SP though.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

I wouldn't over react to a quote from an interview....especially when you can't actually see and hear Craig. Did he have a satisfied grin on his face when he said it? Who knows. Craig is not particularly fond of doing interviews and he can come off a lot different from interview to interview. All things considered looking at the big picture, I'm not going to torture myself while we wait once again for this film in November. I'll just be happy if anyone who wants to see NTTD is able to get to a theater and see it in November.

No reshoots for NTTD
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/a … kdown.html

I found it hard to believe that there would be reshoots. I also find it hard to believe that only a handful will see the film before its 'gala' by which I am assuming Baz Bamigboye means the premiere at the Royal Albert Hall.  What about the press screening?

They were still filming about four weeks ago at Leavesdon, that’s 100%.  But it was completed then too.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

There are different cultures and personalities whe it comes to giving praise and critisism. Some say "Amazing! I love it!" when they like something or "I hate it!" when they don't. Other's say "it works" when they like something or "it's not the best" when they don't. My father tends to say "it's edible" when he like what's for dinner  ajb007/lol
Craig may be of the same type.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

if i watch Craig in interviews, and compare his natural style to how he plays Bond, his appearance on SNL a few weeks back, or Joe Bang from Logan Lucky...
I gotta say his Bond is closer to his real life persona. That other stuff is him really trying to stretch, you can see the acting.

Maybe in real life he grins more, and cracks a few wittys, but he's still got that intimidating glower, and speaks slowly and chooses his few words very carefully.

I think that’s a good point.....maybe the final result was not quite what he expected. Perhaps he is being overly critical but it’s strange given that he thought spectre was better than skyfall which general consensus is that this was not the case.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

First of all, the level of candor and honesty displayed by movie stars is all over the charts. Some will say a film is the greatest thing ever just because that's what is expected of them. Some will slag a perfectly good film because of some personal perceived slight, etc (something ended up on the cutting room floor that they thought was great for them). With Craig...who knows? SPECTRE for example. Craig was quoted as saying something like SP was 10 x Skyfall or something like that. Meanwhile, it was rumored that Craig was not happy with SPECTRE and had clashed with Sam Mendes over a number of things. The other thing to not discount is that what DC perceives as being a good Bond film might not be what we want to see as fans and possibly what the director has created is or vice versa. Here are my feelings (and I apologize if I am repeating myself) and a bit of unsolicited advice said with love for our community): I know it's hard considering the difficult history of NTTD but please try to stay off the ledge and let's look forward to a fall sitting in your favorite cinema with a bunch of other Bond fans awaiting that gun barrel and our favorite theme....and this time around we will truly need it more than ever.

Do we know if Bond actually lights up a cigar in NTTD, or if those images of Craig smoking were just him enjoying a cigar between takes

My guess is it was Craig enjoying a cigar between takes but I wouldn't have a problem with Bond lighting up a cigar in NTTD especially if it's at the annoyance of someone else.

Grace Randolph's Beyond The Trailer is a really good movie news Youtube channel, she really knows the industry. Her BTT channel is owned by the same people who own industry movie trade title deadline.com.

In her latest video, discussing if Mulan and Black Widow will go to streaming Grace states that she does not expect NTTD to get a theatrical release in November. Referring to superhero movies she says that films in the 1-2 billion USD revenue category are unlikely to get a theatrical release for 1-2 years.

Based on what we’re seeing right now, I think that’s potentially correct. This is not going to be truly over until they get a vaccine in play, and we’re 12 months minimum from that happening.

If there is a vaccine, period. I've seen some discouse that it may be inefficacious to vaccinate. I think there's a lot of uncertainty and making projections for ~8 months from now is a bit silly for any layperson (even a film journalist!) to do. Whole bunch of variables at play.

Of course we'll see, perhaps this is the optimist in me. Stuff really sucks these days!

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

JamesBondRadio's Jack Lugo now has a good article on that website about the prospects for an NTTD digital release, and he cites Grace Randolph.
http://jamesbondradio.com/the-prospect- … me-to-die/

Randolph in her Youtube report says streaming services might charge $25 for a major tentpole movie. Assuming NTTD's production costs were $250m and its marketing cost half that, $125m, then it only needs 15 million households to rent/buy it for that price to break even. Any country with 60 million people or more is going to have 15 million households, assuming 4 person per household/family. There are 25 nations with 59 million or more inhabitants. Admittedly a lot of those countries are poor and could not afford $25 for a movie but Canada at 34 million, Australia at 20 million, all those high income smaller countries will add up fast. A same-day worldwide release could easily hit 15 million streams/households. NTTD isn't going to be a billion dollar movie but it could make a small profit and in the world of coronavirus it's all about survival.

Looking past it being the wrong thread for that post, nitpicking a couple of things in the quiz... For the question "Which electronic instrument was stolen from MI6 with all agent’s data in Skyfall episode?" two of the four choices are "Computer drive" and "hard drive"...they're the same thing. The question "What was being celebrated in Mexico city in the beginning of the Spectre?" two of the four choices are "The day of the dead" and "Public Holiday"...The Day of the Dead is a public holiday in Mexico. And the answer to the question "Which of the ingredients is NOT a part of Vesper Martini?" is "Martini"...that doesn't even make sense.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

EON was ahead of the curve in delaying the film, which gave them the ability to grab a good spot in the fall. Now I think they should take the lead on the streaming idea. They would have a MASSIVE audience with everyone at home. Charge enough for the right to stream it, and they could still turn a large profit.
