NO TIME TO DIE - post-release thread
#1
A 9 minute preview from the pre-credit sequence has been screened and detailed on many sites, might as well include it here as it contains spoilers:

It seems the September/October release is pretty much locked. The only thing that could push this back is if there's a sudden lockdown worldwide.

I mean, does it contain spoilers, really?

For those who want to talk about it but not in the pre-release thread, sure.

Can you really spoil a Bond movie at this point? They're not exactly intricate and intelligent portrayals of spycraft you know.

That's my review.

Depends on how invested you are in Bond, I suppose. These movies are a bigger deal to me than the Marvel fare, so I’m more hyped for this.

I wish they cast someone else besides Seydoux. She and Craig have no chemistry together.

She's also a good 15 years too young for him.

There's a No Time to Die promo photo of him guiding her somewhere and it immediately reminded me of Liam Neeson and Maggie Grace in Taken.

Look, love is love, people can find it wherever (and thus so can films), but Craig is the rare Hollywood actor that looks older than his age while Seydoux follows the more standard formula of looking 5+ years younger than she is.  This visually magnifies their actual age gap by quite a bit.

**The promo photo in question:

This is nothing compared to the age gaps between Roger Moore and his leading ladies. In FOR YOUR EYES ONLY he was 30 years older than Carole Bouquet.

I always think of the story from A View to a Kill.

Tanya Roberts' mother visits the set. When introducing her to Roger, he finds out she's younger than him. By quite a few years. Supposedly that was when he decided to retire.

That or him being laughed off the screen by then. You decide.

Moore was always honest about having done one film too many. OCTOPUSSY would have been a much better final outing for him. Looking at his leading ladies, the closest age gap he had was with Britt Ekland, by 15 years. His leading ladies were typically 20 years younger, and that’s why his pairing with Maud Adams felt less stark because she was 37 when he was 55.

I thought James Bond, the character, was between 35-45. Yeah, the actors aged out of that, but who gives a fuck? Just suspend disbelief.

The bullets in his gun ain't real, either! Spoilers?

No kidding.  Bond on screen remembering Vesper 10-15 years ago is much more compelling than any of the relationships in any of the films since.

I think it's less the age difference and more that Seydoux doesn't hold the screen next to Craig especially well-- in SPECTRE anyhow. But only a handful of Bond Girls have managed to really do that with their respective Bonds. What are you gonna do?

Maybe that’s why they break up at the beginning of the film.

I thought Craig worked well with Olga Kurylenko.

She's more of a colleague than a romantic interest here.

The problem wasn't with Seydoux, it was the writing not adding up. It starts with Swann seemingly HATING Bond from the start, but then the movie tries to force a romance that it never feels anything other than contrived. SPECTRE desperately needed rewrites more than anything.

Given that this is a new film-making team, I look forward to how they re-contextualize the relationship between Bond and Swann.

I have never thought that there was the slightest bit of chemistry between Seydoux and Craig.  I would be surprised if they liked each other, at all, in real life (though I admit onscreen/offscreen dynamics could be remarkably different).

This is in comparison to Eva Green who positively crackled with Craig.

Just my read on it.

Craig gets approval over casting leading ladies in these films, so the fact that he was game to have her back at least says to me that he must have enjoyed working with her. But like I said, we'll see how that dynamic actually plays out on NTTD.

Well they kind of have to have her back don't they? It would be kind of weird if they didn't. Probably some think pieces.

The way SP ended was vague enough that it could have worked like any other Bond ending. It never explicitly says Bond quit the service, that was all left to subtext. In fact, the Danny Boyle version of the film supposedly did that by having Bond still in the service and not having Swann. But once they started anew with Fukanaga, they decided to pick up on the idea that Bond did in fact quit for Swann.

It’s tough to compare almost any Bond girl to Green though. Her and Rigg are really in a league of their own.

Sounds pretty classically Bondian.

All that work that I put into getting the pre-release thread title changed, and this is now where all the action is, a post-release thread for a movie that's over a month away from release.

I'm not a fan of rendering threads obsolete before it's absolutely necessary.

But it is what it is.  We're in here now.

I don't think it's quite that overblown and/or generic.  Off the top of my head, I don't remember recent trailers giving us the full twangy guitar version of the theme.
