No Time To Die: Bond 25 - Out Now

Recommended Posts

A time travel Bond where Daniel Craig Bond is sent back to the events of Doctor No, and has to stop fellow time traveller Jaws (restored to his 70s glory using the cutting edge computer graphics from Civil War) from sabotaging Sean Connery Bond's mission. So that Connery doesn't recognise his future self and trigger a timeline shattering paradox, Craig wears blackface throughout.

In a new interview, possibly his first since the Spectre release, Craig seems to have changed his tune. He's saying the wrist slashing comment was made a day after filming ended, that he was very tired and hadn't been home for a year. Also added that he'd keep making them as long as they wanted him to. He also confirms there has been no discussion on the next one and that no seems to be in any rush.

edit: might be wrong but I'm sure that second quote in the article, about him wanting to do them as long as they wanted him, is actually an old one.

The difference being that the films, while in Spectre's case not actually being any good, are still massively critically acclaimed and doing gangbusters at the box office. 

 

There are a few similarities. England are ranked above Spain, Italy and France in the Fifa rankings, so while, like Spectre, the reality is they're rubbish, for some reason they're rated highly, successive poor tournaments or not, and the FA posted gross profit of £261m for the year ending July 2014.

I didn't realise that two writers have been a part of every Bond film since The World Is Not Enough. 

 

GoldenEye is my favourite Bond, and I've always really liked Tomorrow Never Dies, a media mogul creating war for headlines was a great story I thought and well played by Jonathan Pryce. I miss the grit of GoldenEye though. l always hated The World Is Not Enough for reasons I couldn't work out at the time. 

 

It's probably fair to say that Purvis and Wade were the worst aspects of any screenplay they were involved in for Bond ?

I don't know, it seems like they largely go along with the producers' and directors' intentions for the films. So if the director says they want a down to earth return to Fleming you'll get one thing, but if the edict from on high is to return to Moore camp but with whatever flashy modern gimmicks are in vogue at the time they'll deliver a Die Another Day.

 

The fact they're so willing to play ball with EON seems to be part of the reason they keep getting invited back!

 

I remember the Empire podcast with them after Skyfall being a good interview.

Yea I think not having Mendes and his obsession with the comedy Bond tropes of old will help.

 

I'd love one more Bond with Craig in the vain of Casino Royale. Surely despite the cash made the studio pay attention to the chatter about the quality of the film...?

Craig needs to go. I won't pay to see him trudge through another film. It's reset time. I'd like to see a whole new cast and vision if i'm honest. I'm bored of the current set up. It needs new ideas and a new lease of life.

 

I'd like to see less fighting action hero, more spy and a bit of fun. I want a new Living Daylights.

Craig is getting on a bit now too, he'll be into his 50's by the time the next one comes around, and especially if they cast another bond girl in her 20's. I thought Craig and Seydoux looked mis-matched in Spectre

 

It'd be fine if they cast Craig opposite a 40's/50's Bond girl, but after Monica Bellucci being reducded to a bit part I suspect they'll go 20's again

Bit part? She wasn't even that. Spectre's worst crime was its absolutely cringeworthy and pathetic use of Bellucci and her character. Outrageously bad.

Keanu Reeves, Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp & Brad Pitt. None of these men should be Bond but they are all in their 50s and we don't seem to think that age is a problem with them playing the roles they're given. Obviously there is the notable exception of long dead forumite Crispin_G body shaming Tom Cruise that time.

 

But is there a reason the character of Bond can't be older? Sure in the 70's a man in his 40s would look like a pensioner but with all the preservatives and midichlorians in our food these days and life expectancy increasing, 50 doesn't feel that old anymore. Or maybe it's just me.

Plenty of 50+ year old actors who are screen presences full of life, vitality and infectious charisma.

 

Daniel Craig is not one of them.

True but that's down to his churlish demeanour rather than his age. I've never known an actor be less enamoured with his roles.

I've got no problem with Bond being 50+, it just looks embarrassing when he's cast against a 20 something Bond Girl.

The 50+ Cruise was fine in the superior Rogue Nation, and I like that the film didn't force his and Ferguson's characters into a relationship (something that benefited Ferguson's character hugely)

Five studios competing for the movie. Warner Bros., Universal, 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures and newcomer Annapurna Pictures are bidding for the single movie deal.

 

Quote

Sony pulled out the big guns to keep the British spy series on its Culver City lot, recruiting Sony Corporation CEO Kazuo Hirai to personally deliver the pitch to MGM and EON. The pitch meeting was even held on a sound stage styled as a set from the 1963 Bond film “Dr. No.”
