  1. Not that it matters but I wonder if the NTTD tv spots were shown during the ceremony “internationally”. In the States, I only saw entertainment commercials for Disney owned properties, e.g. Fox FX, Marvel, ABC, etc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Do you know if it ran during the Oscar ceremony? Just curious. I saw it during the red carpet pre-show on E! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I can’t remember where I read this but pieces of the song (not sure if it was the lyrics or arrangement) was part of Amy Winehouse’s early demo for QOS. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Hot take: I prefer Tomorrow Never Dies over Surrender. I like Surrender but it’s a little too on brand for a Bond song. Also, Lange’s voice doesn’t do much for me. On a side note, I love The Living Daylights but I also wish The Pretenders’ Where Has Everybody Gone was a title song. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. It’s interesting because, anecdotally, NTTD seemed to have a bigger reception (through upvotes and comments) on Reddit’s r/movies than any other Super Bowl spot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I think it depends on whether or not the producers or composer or director have a particular artist in mind. Tomorrow Never Dies is interesting because there several demos floating around. If I’m not mistaken, the Swan Lee song was sunset used for one of the Hitman games. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. While not scientific, the upvotes and comments for NTTD’s Super Bowl spot on Reddit seem to indicate a better reception than any other movie that was advertised during the game. https://www.reddit.com/r/movies/ NTTD has 5.4k upvotes compared to Black Widow’s 644. Even in r/marvelstudios, BW has “only” 1.2k upvotes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. We’ll have to buy a ticket to find out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-7956427/James-Bond-film-No-Time-Die-longest-180-minute-running-time.html No Time to Die runs to two hours and 54 minutes - though it may get longer The near-three hour film is a 'big gamble' for producers, a film critic said The script was 'constantly added to' and plot was changing, a source alleged Daniel Craig brought Phoebe Waller-Bridge in to make the script more 'woke' She was adding in pages and team were shooting more, making it 'chaotic' There’s a lot of hyperbole in the article but I think the takeaway is that this film will be
  11. You’re right. I didn’t mean to sound as if I was offering an alternative narrative. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. From what I’ve read, Lupita turned down NTTD because of scheduling conflicts. Interestingly, Rami’s scheduling conflicts between NTTD and Mr. Robot were resolved because Universal stepped in. Universal produced Mr. Robot and is releasing NTTD overseas. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I don’t think the filmmakers are oblivious to Spectre’s reception but they obviously feel there’s a satisfying ending to tell. I feel the trailer was less of a teaser and more of a level set after five years. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. To be fair, I don’t think the moral of the story is that audiences don’t want serialization in Bond films but that QOS and SP don’t completely work. Although, both have admirable, even good, elements. Also, QOS and SP were both box offices successes. QOS made $586m against CR’s $599, and SP made $880, which is the sixth highest grossing film of 2015. I think people are underestimating Bond’s box office appeal and over stating the course correction necessary for NTTD to be a box office and critical success. SP left a bad taste in people’s mouths but so did Die Another Day, and the following
  15. No Time To Die opens Easter weekend. Given the property and the holiday, I think we can expect a 3-day and 4-day larger than Bad Boy's 4. If it opens to $85+ million, like Skyfall, over the 3-day then a $100 million 4-day is on the table.
  16. I think EON (the producers) works best when their backs are against the wall. They know the stakes and deliver every time no one thinks they can. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. I think they’ll have a Super Bowl spot. Also, I anticipate heavy TV marketing during March Madness college basketball in the US. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. The troubled production history mainly centered on Danny Boyle’s departure. The story and screenplay that eventually became NTTD is an original pitch from Cary Fukunaga. Even with additional scripting from Neil Purvis, Robert Wade, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Scott Z. Burns we can’t really say that NTTD isn’t as “well produced or cohesive as Skyfall.” Skyfall was not without it’s own hiccups: Original script from Peter Morgan was re-written by Purvis and Wade. That screenplay was later polished by John Logan Production was suspended when MGM ran into financial trouble Die Another Day wasn’t
  19. I think it speaks to EON’s confidence in the material that NTTD will tie up Spectre’s loose ends. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Well, I think just from the estimated runtime, it won’t be like QOS but many Bond fans have positively re-evaluated that film. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. I think so too. If it opens north of $80m then $200m is almost guaranteed. Correct me if I’m wrong but the only film that opened at $80m or above and not hit $200m is “X-MEN Origins: Wolverine.” My all in is $275m domestic and $900m overseas. Pent up demand, inflation and a strong dollar will carry this to $1b if the reviews are good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
