  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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

  9. I think NTTD has as good of a shot at 1 billion as WW84 & Black Widow. Never underestimate Bond’s overseas appeal, especially in Western Europe. Spectre underperformed, in part, because of the critical/audience consensus but had the USD exchange rate been as strong in November 2015 as it was in Spring/Summer then Spectre would have probably equaled Skyfall overseas. Spectre even outperformed Skyfall in some foreign markets. I’m not saying it’s guaranteed but it’s not as much of a long shot as many think. To put it another way, I don’t see NTTD doing less than Spectre in almost any overse

  11. If it is Eilish then we may get an announcement in time for her performance at the Grammy's on January 26th. It would be a boon to have her debut the song at the show.
  12. Why is Lana Del Rey such an ‘obvious’ choice? Eilish has been favorably compared to Del Rey and she holds her up as an inspiration. Del Rey would be a good choice but why not go for someone that can sing and sell some records? As for QOS, had there not been a writer’s strike, then EON may have pulled it off. None the less, the film is getting more favorable recognition as it ages. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Mi6-HQ is one of the premier Bond fan sites. They could have gotten this wrong but they can be trusted. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Too true but she had the best performing album of 2019, and it was also a critical success. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  16. Right...definitely caffeine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Or the director wants a different direction. I think many people would be surprised at the amount of creative freedom this generation of Broccolis give their directors. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Is this a serious comment? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. 100M in local currency was never really predicted, although some hoped for it. The estimated target was 80M, which has already been achieved. 90M is likely with 90M+ on the table. Spectre won't match Skyfall in the UK, but for all intents and purposes that wasn't the expectation.
  20. A billion is still possible. Spectre has yet to open in Japan, China, South Korea, France and Australia.
  21. Any update on Spectre's Monday numbers?
  22. Will 'Spectre' Top 'Skyfall' at the U.K. Box Office? "In the U.S., MKM Partners analyst Eric Handler tells THR that Spectre is looking at an opening “similar to Skyfall,” around the $85 million to $90 million mark (Skyfall bowed with $88.4 million), for a total haul, according to FBR Research's Barton Crockett, of around $295 million (Skyfallgrossed $304.4 million), making it the eighth biggest title this year."
