BOND 25 pre-release
The 007 series is pretty morbid, isn't it?

Was hoping for something a bit fresher, but okay.

It's in Jamaica, right?

"[Dr] No, time to die."

Give me Rami Malek with super-cyborg hands and a rad rad suit.

That would be a weirdly brilliant move.

Drew McWeeny has heard that Malek is indeed playing Dr. No...

No Time to Die is simply and sounds cool, so I'm good with. Now get The Struts to record the theme song.

Interesting coincidence!

My wife had seen the title online and was trying to tell me what it was, but didn't remember it quite right. She told me it was 'I Never Intend to Die', and now I'm disappointed that's not real.

It would seem there’s more to why the title was chosen. It just happens to be based off a film Cubby produced in 1958, with a ton of the same Bond filmmakers like Terence Young and Richard Maibaum.

That's good. I like that its a reference to something in the Bond legacy, tangential or not.

Anyway, I now predict that the title for Bond *26* will be RISICO or PROPERTY OF A LADY...

Doesn't Risico have to actually mean something relevant to the plot to be a good title?
Reply
It basically means risk, so it can pretty much apply to any Bond. Given how EON has avoided it and other titles for 30 years, it may not see the light of day until new producers have their say.
Reply
Oh. I didn't know what it meant. It sounded like a name or something. Well...something at least more specific than just "risk." I guess I get it as a title now..
Reply
How many Bond titles are relevant to the plot? One in eight, maybe? And those would just be proper names.

Besides, they'd probably have a character named Franz Risico or something like that.

In any case, I just didn't know Risico meant something so broad. It sounded like a term too specific to just give to any movie. No Time to Die though is a title that doesn't need a translation to sound like it could be given to any 007 film.

Casino Royale, Spectre and Skyfall are more specific than a great many of them. Among others..

Yeah, was going to say that three of the four Craig films have titles that clearly and directly relate to the story.

Most of titles couldn't be given to any of the films. But all of the films could probably be called No Time to Die. Like Licence to Kill. Is there any Bond film that couldn't use that title?

Daniel Craig is James Bond in 'For the Paycheck'.

The very first line in the "Risico" short story is Kristatos saying "In this pizniss is much risico.", which is the scene in FOR YOUR EYES ONLY where Bond and Kristatos observe Columbo from their restaurant table. Kinda surprised that line never actually made it in FYEO as just a nod, given that it's one of the two short stories adapted for that film. OCTOPUSSY at least gave a shout out to "Property of a Lady" for the auction scene.
Reply
There's no reason that 'Property of a Lady' couldn't be used. Just because it was a line in OCTOPUSSY doesn't negate it for all time. Shit, we're getting a bunch of vintage Bond cars in the new film...
Reply
"Property of a Lady" seemed pretty obvious to me just because of the #MeToo thing. I guess EON/MGM weren't feeling that one.

When are they going to use The Hiddlebrand Rarity as a title?
Reply
The safe house at the end of Spectre was called Hildebrand.

Hope we get a Q Branch rubber duck surveillance device or what-have-you. Of course some kid would probably pick it up, wrecking 007's plan, alas...
Reply
I will be all in favor of the next Bond's run featuring some (slightly!) goofier gadgets.
If we can dream it, then we can do it.

Perhaps Q invented Pim Particles and the rubber ducky carries a shrunken James Bond. This will be Craig's alligator swimsuit moment.

For the second time ever for a Bond film (first being Spectre) Industrial Light & Magic is doing FX for this. This pleases me.

Before you think "so what"....remember the CGI in Die Another Day..
Reply
Huh, I wasn’t even aware they did SPECTRE. I guess Blofeld’s scarred face was their handiwork.
Reply
I was thinking the (awesome looking) title sequence visuals. Those tentacles!
Reply
Daniel Kleinman backed by ILM?

Hell yes.
Reply
Has it been confirmed that Kleinman is returning?
If we can dream it, then we can do it.

Just an assumption.
Reply
I hope ILM's role is limited because I want to see practical stunts in a Bond movie.

Reply
ILM's involvement is only a good thing. I don't think that's any indication of MORE computer effects just because they're using them. All the Bourne movies used ILM after all. It just means that what CGI there is, which I'd imagine would be there with or without their involvement, will at least be top notch instead of Pierce surfing.

And the credit sequence stuff..
