That's a bingo. Two bingos in fact.

Could be interesting, could be gimmicky.

Apparently Zimmer is working with Eilish to weave her song into his score.

If the schedule is as tight as it is, it’s smart not just to bring in past collaborators to help out but also use Eilish’s song as the backbone of the score. Zimmer is making it difficult NOT to raise my expectations!

Even if Eilish's song isn't any good, this is what the approach should be.

Some plot elements are starting to come out:
https://www.slashfilm.com/no-time-to-die...ore-599246


Quote:Entertainment Weekly debuted a glitzy new look at the cast of No Time to Die in its cover story on the 25th James Bond outing, which was filled with more details about the film’s mysterious plot than ever before. The film picks up “some time after” the events of 2015’s Spectre, when he had he left the espionage world behind to begin a new life with Léa Seydoux’s French psychologist Madeleine Swann. No Time to Die finds Bond retired and living in Jamaica, but producer Barbara Broccoli hints that Bond and Swann are no longer getting along so swimmingly:

“He decided to go off with her and try to have a normal life. Which, of course, we completely blow a hole through at the beginning of this one. He starts off on a romantic journey with Madeleine and then believes that he’s been betrayed by her.”

Seydoux adds cryptically, “S— happens! Everything falls apart.”

Are his romantic troubles what bring Bond back to the spy game? Not exactly — according to EW, it was Bond’s old CIA friend Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright), who asks him for help to rescue a kidnapped scientist (David Dencik, Top of the Lake). This takes Bond to Cuba where he follows the trail of Rami Malek‘s mysterious scarred villain Safin (who may or may not be Dr. No, per fan theories).

“Let’s just say that there are some immense challenges [he] has faced in his life,” Malek said of his Big Bad’s prominent facial scars.

No Time to Die is packed full of Bond villain’s, with Christoph Waltz’s SPECTRE chief Ernst Stavro Blofeld set to return after his appearance in Spectre. After his life was spared by Bond in the last installment, Blofeld has been languishing in Belmarsh Prison. But the baddie is up to something, Broccoli says, who confirms that “he’s actually communicating to the SPECTRE agents” from within the prison.

I'm actually glad to hear that Blofeld is seemingly doing more than being a Hannibal Lecter figure. I like the idea of SPECTRE still operating under his guidance even while confied.

I'd kind of expect the Billie Eilish song to be more like the stuff you probably don't hear all the time if you hear one of her songs...which are probably Crown and Bad Guy.

I'm pretty sure we'll even see a breakout sequence with him. If it's revealed that Hinx is leading the breakout, bravo to EON for keeping a tight lid on that! I don't expect it, but it would be something that would get me very positive on this film. EON has done a pretty good job keeping things close to the vest with this one, contrasting with the Sony leaks with SPECTRE. Until the trailer came out, I didn't think Lea Seydoux would have much of a role, assuming they'd kill her at the beginning and that's why Bond stays retired in Jamaica just drinking himself to death.

And at last, it's revealed that it's David Dencik that's the kidnapped scientist.

Eilish has confirmed what Zimmer had kinda/sorta said, which is that they've been working together on the song. And apparently for a while.

That definitely lines up with that James Bond Radio tweet of Romer being off the project, which was posted on November 1st. So there's been plenty of time between then and now for Zimmer and Eilish to have worked together at some point with the song. Like I said, EON's been doing a seemingly good job keeping all of this locked up.

Phil (!) tweeted out today that foreign distributors are listing the running time as 2 hours and 54 minutes. That's a lotta Bond.

I guess long running times are to make up for those missing years we could have had Bond films in 2010 and 2017.

That gives me a bad feeling that there is going to be a lot of bloat and most of it will be Bond/Swann relationship stuff.

Also, been listening to some Eilish to see what we might be in for with the title song. It’s not my cup of tea but “bad guy” is one of those that kinda gets stuck in your head.

Thats way too long for a Bond movie.

If this was a Roger Moore film, that would be excessive. But these Craig films aside from QOS have all been pretty bloated, so it doesn't shock me that they'd be marching towards three hours. If it works for the film, that's fine by me. The thing that amazed me about ENDGAME was how those three hours flew by.

Casino Royale: 2 hrs 25 minutes

Quantum of Solace: 1 hr 46 minutes

Skyfall: 2 hrs 23 minutes

SPECTRE: 2 hrs 28 minutes


Sooooo....NTTD will be about 20 minutes over the longest Craig entry. Agreed that it seems too long for a Bond film, but it's also essentially a series capper before they reboot.

I admit I was hoping for a return to the leaner and meaner no nonsense style of Craig's earlier films (though it's funny to be reminded that Casino is actually quite long, somehow it feels pretty brisk). I gave up much hope of that when it became clear how much this plays into the Craig-era 'mythology', and if the run time is true the idea is even more out the window.

It is intriguing though, I'll give them that. Run times floating just under the 2.5 hour mark usually means a slightly baggy, but basically normal film. You don't bump up against 3 hours unless you're making a statement.

Could all be a mix up of course. Last week there were reports floating around that the new Wes Anderson would be 4 hours long, turns out someone just made a typo.

that's my opinion as well.  As long as there's enough content in there to justify the length and it's all of excellent quality, I'm good with it.

what I'd appreciate is if they limit the trailers to only 2 or 3, though.  Adding 25 minutes on to a movie's runtime by having 8 or 9 trailers is already infuriating, but it's especially grating on a very long film.
Reply
I'd prefer that, too, but best to assume this will be a 3+ hour theater experience in total. EVERY movie now has 20+ minutes of trailers and commercials in front.

One of the main reasons I see 99% of my movies at the Arclight is because you get about seven minutes of trailers and that's it. Those student films are always so fucking bad. And I say this as somebody who made bad student films (redundant). At least I had the decency not to stick them in front of movies people paid for and actually wanted to see.
