Re: "Noh" Time to Die

well it would be good if the title meant something other than a random set of words with Die in it.
and yes that Mask is definitely a part of the film, apparently a significant part. So at the very least the title could be a pun.

I don't want to see them remake Dr No, when they still haven't done You Only Live Twice properly yet, but that's just me. We shall have to wait and see, and in the meantime its fun to sift the clues and speculate!

what does Malik say about a "reflection", just as we get to the shot of him in the mask through the frosted glass at 1:52? (the image in th opening post) is it "I could be speaking to my own reflection"? his enunciation isnt so great

Please please let it be Dr No! The Bond movies would have done a huge circle back to the beginning. My theory is that Daniel's "James Bond" either dies or retires for good, leaving Connery's 'Bond' to finish the job, Bond being just a code name after all.

Bond is not a code name at all. It's his actual surname.

I thought this was understood after Skyfall came out.

Well for what it's worth; in the trailer both Bond and Malek's character sit in seiza during the exchange....

I'm agreeing with everything you're saying here.

Basically we need more unused stuff, and less rehashed stuff.

I'm currently re-watching the bond films (the NTTD trailer set that off lol), and Dr No is just a brilliant film through and through, including the titular villain. I want Malek to be his own villain, even if it is using the Shatterhand name.

If they bring back Dr No, then I guarantee they will be bringing back Goldfinger, Largo, Scaramanga, when would it end? New/unused villains please!

And there's a picture of a Japanese pagoda (or something similar) behind Malek on the close-up

The Northern islands of Japan has pine woods and can get snow. This means it's possible, but in my opinion unlikely, the scenes in the cabin and on the frozen lake are set in Japan.

I think it's a posiblity, but not a very likely one.

Re: "Noh" Time to Die

If we are all wondering if he's Dr. No AND it's the only James Bond film to have "No" in its title (apart from Dr. No), it's because he IS Dr. No. Come on guys...Dr. No belongs to SPECTRE...Ernst Stavro Blofeld is back. Just connect the dots.

Absolutely.

I'm 99% certain it'll be Dr No. I also see nothing wrong with it being Dr No because it's clearly not a remake of Dr No, any more than Spectre was a remake of any of the Blofeld films previously made. And it's not as if we haven't had many villians in the Dr No mould anyway.

Mark my words they've done it. Far too many dots, as Virgil said, that point directly to the obvious.

So when they announced that Safin is the villains name, that was done as a deterrent. Or do you think they renamed him to Safin instead of using Julius. Just curious what people think.

Re: "Noh" Time to Die

They called Moneypenny ‘Eve’,, to throw us off the scent. And of course they did the same with Blofeld, announcing him as a character in the original Fleming Bond books that wasn’t Blofeld.  That was a massive deception.

Seems to be a pattern, doesn't it? NTTD has two characters who people suspect are more than what they're telling us. 00-agent Nomi and Safin. Could they be attempting to deceive us with both these characters? Have they gone to far?
