He was contracted for four films. Four days after the last one wrapped an eight-month shoot, while hungover first thing in the morning, he was asked if he was thinking about the next one at that moment:

Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. ...For at least a year or two, I just don’t want to think about it.

Hollywood Liberalism is making environmentalists or Occupy or Antifa the villain instead of a Koch Brother because the Koch Brother would be too obvious and the other one is more narratively interesting but also you hate the Lefty activist for reasons you can't articulate https://t.co/E4e8CkPHrK

Bond absolutely would have voted Leave.

Bond felt what almost amounted to contempt for the neverending wrangling of the politicians, media and public over the European Union. He knew the real events that governed the world took place beneath the surface, in another world, a world that few would see until it erupted onto their screens as an unexpected war, a politician’s disappearance, or the downing of a plane. A hapless or intrepid journalist might stumble on the edges of it, and wash up dead a week later on the shores of the South China Seas, in a Balkan ghetto, or in a rented room in Paddington. This wasn’t something controlled by public debate and rotten politicians. Behind those events were dangerous men. Shadowy, capricious gamblers who held the world’s fate between their thumb and forefinger. And in five minutes one of them was going to walk into the St James’ club where Bond was drinking a scotch and water, and ask if he had a light.

imo.

ha, thanks - i just wanted to play out a hunch that Fleming wdve written Bond as outside grubby politics and slightly contemptuous of it all. Fleming himself - an Empire figure, and like many people of his age were they still around - would have been Brexit. And the silly patriotic eyebrow-ironically-raised bombast of the recent films is of course v brexity.

also is it just me or are there some very awkward beats in that trailer

This looks dope, I don't know what jaded ish y'all are on

Although I reserve the right to be extremely pissed when they kill the black female 00 to explore Bond's feelings

brigadier pudding (DJP), Wednesday, 4 December 2019 15:30 (five months ago) link

hoping that craig dies at the end and lashana lynch is the new 007 tbh

much more likely they gain a grudging respect for one another even as he sadly realizes he's no longer "fit to purpose" and respawns as....adam driver

no longer watch the films but this trailer seems more promising than the last few, looks to have been scaled back into an actual spy movie

imago, Wednesday, 4 December 2019 16:22 (five months ago) link

a vision of a better world

Julie Walters suggested herself as a possible female villain in this film, such as Rosa Klebb, while working with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli on Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (2017). Walters, admittedly, had not heard back as of July 2017.

The trailer has some mildly odd beats but trailer editing is usually misleading in ways good bad and neutral. It does look very good visually, the action seems a bit more dynamic which—as I’ll never shut up about—was the issue w/the Mendes Bonds, which made billions but also showed the risks of going with a high profile middlebrow hack behind the lens vs an action veteran (one reason Casino Royale was great beyond the script and the casting was the Martin Campbell factor). Still will be disappointed if they don’t deploy Craig’s extremely excellent sense of humor, which was used in a very natural and seamless and effective way in CR, only to cast it aside for grimdark chaos your past haunts you James stuff.

omar little, Wednesday, 4 December 2019 16:41 (five months ago) link

maybe they edited the repeated nutshots James takes over the course of the movie out of the trailer

brigadier pudding (DJP), Wednesday, 4 December 2019 16:43 (five months ago) link

Thanks for reminding me about the chair scene in casino royale

omar little, Wednesday, 4 December 2019 16:45 (five months ago) link

haha anytime

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 4 December 2019 16:46 (five months ago) link

damn this looks much better than the last two. hope it is

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 4 December 2019 16:47 (five months ago) link

I guess it probably doesn't help that I thought both Skyfall and Spectre were beautiful but boring, so this one looking nice doesn't excite me much on its own

Simon H., Wednesday, 4 December 2019 16:47 (five months ago) link

i'm not necessarily just reacting to the look, but then it's ridiculous to make any judgments about a movie from the trailer etc.

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 4 December 2019 16:51 (five months ago) link

regardless, feels like it has way more of an identity of its own than spectre, which was a rehash of old bond themes made 10000x worse

"we'll have a train fight, like from russia with love, except it won't be filmed half as well!" "we'll bring in blofeld, but he'll secretly be bond's brother!!!!"

hope waltz remains caged in glass for the runtime

I want to make an ortolan joke now but I can't get the formulation right

Waltz would have made a great Roger Moore-era Bond villain.

This looks dope, I don't know what jaded ish y'all are on

I watched Spectre a couple of years ago and i'm still angry

"This looks dope, I don't know what jaded ish y'all are on"

no shit. I mean a Bond film has to be really, really, really shitty for me to not like it. I like all the Craig Bond films. This looks good too. I'm not expecting cinema I just want to be entertained and watch people shoot shit while speaking in english accents and wearing suits. Ana de Armas better have some lines though.

akm, Wednesday, 4 December 2019 17:37 (five months ago) link

a bond film has to be really really really shitty for me not to like it too, and i hate skyfall and spectre, they're empty and cynical and negatively influenced by the nolan batmans

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 4 December 2019 17:39 (five months ago) link

yup. even QoS, while incompetently directed, is more interesting than either of 'em

Simon H., Wednesday, 4 December 2019 17:39 (five months ago) link

eh, I like them all

brigadier pudding (DJP), Wednesday, 4 December 2019 17:41 (five months ago) link

lol i watched the trailer with the sound off and his facial expression every single time is like CONFUSED OLD MAN DOESN'T KNOW WHY THESE PEOPLE ARE LOOKING AT HIM
