  1. James Bond defeats Italian bureaucrats, who had proposed legislation that every gun used on a film set must be tested to only fire blanks I love this line from the article: "As one Italian newspaper succinctly put it: "James Bond 1-Burocrazia 0"."
  2. I can't wait for this film. I've seen you on MI6-HQ forums. I posted on the forums years ago under a different name but have been lurking for a while.
  3. James Bond SPECTRE filming begins: First pictures of Daniel Craig on set on the River Thames
  4. I haven't read any of the scripts but I have read a scene by scene breakdown of the movie dated sometime in October. Even with some of the scenes missing from the breakdown and no dialogue the film flows pretty well. The scale of this film is huge. The action set pieces are ambitious and intricate. I love Skyfall and Spectre is a continuation of the relationships and themes explored in that film. Theme and tone are where Craig's Bond films succeed. They have something meaningful to say about Bond and the world he inhabits.
  5. The same thing could have been said about TDK, but TDKR outgrossed TDK WW. The domestic number decreased, but given the gross of TDK I think that was expected. If Spectre does earn less domestically than Skyfall I don't think the difference will be huge. Compare Star Trek Into Darkness to Star Trek: $228 million vs $257 million. That's 'only' a difference of $29 million.
  6. Star Trek (2009) made $257 million domestic and $385 million WW. Star Trek: Nemesis made $43 million domestic and $67 million WW. Batman Begins made $206 million domestic and $374 million WW. The Dark Knight made $534 million domestic and $1 billion WW. Spectre may not hit $300+ million, but it could. It really could.
  7. I believe that Spectre will outgross Skyfall. I'm saying 1.3 Billion. If Skyfall was Bond's The Dark Knight or Avengers, then Spectre will be The Dark Knight Rises or Iron Man 3. We could see a small increase or large increase, but there will be an increase. New James Bond Movie ‘Spectre’ Expected To Spend More Than $60 Million On Rome Shoot http://variety.com/2014/film/global/new-james-bond-movie-spectre-expected-to-spend-more-than-60-million-on-rome-shoot-1201377934/
  8. Belucci's casting would cooberate reports of Penelope Cruz's involvement that popped up earlier this year. Both actresses would the be the oldest Bond Girls in the franchises history.
  9. http://deadline.com/2014/12/james-bond-24-title-cast-revealed-live-pinewood-1201305919/ Slipped casually in this Deadline.com article on Thursday's Bond press event is a rumor the Monica Belluci may have been cast. She was in line to be cast as Paris Carver in "Tomorrow Never Dies" but the role went to Teri Hatcher.
  10. Sorry, about giving the incorrect date for principal photograohy. I was going off a rumored date put forward a few months ago in the DailyMail newspaper. Maybe the press event is scheduled so early to avoid being preempted in the news cycle by another story/ event. If something major happens in the world or there's some other big entertainment story then 4 hours or so could make a difference in media saturation/ coverage. It's all speculation of course. The time could simply be an accommodation for the actors and their schedules.
  11. I assume they chose that time for a couple different reasons. One reason is so they can dominate the American entertainment news cycle for an entire day and still take advantage of afternoon and evening reporting in Europe (and around the world). Like Skyfall, I'm sure the livestream will be made available on the official website/ Facebook page/ YouTube channel immediately afterwards. So, unlike the Marvel Media Day in October, everyone (press and fans) will have access to the footage/ questions/ interviews. A second reason may simply be that they want to utilize the rest of day for produc
  12. It may be useful to look at a list of musical artists signed to SONY Music. Several months back SONY launched the ONE SONY "BE MOVED" campaign/ initiative. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Sony_Music_artists If Adele doesn't return I think a realistic and popular choice is Beyonce. She may be 'controversial' among some Bond purists (or those that simply don't like her music) but her career is on fire. She is arguably the most popular female musical artist on the planet and the only singer that could top Adele's Skyfall in popularity, if not, acclaim. SONY ELECTRONICS LAUNCHES O
  13. "Local press report that the citizens of Obertilliach were briefed by Bond 24's Austrian project coordinator this week. It was also the first time that they officially confirmed that it was the production of the 24th James Bond adventure for which the location was being prepared."
  14. James Bond 24 to Shoot Scenes in Rome "While details are still under wraps, a source confirmed that shooting was planned for Rome. Italian news agency ANSAreported that Rome will host no less than three key action scenes for the upcoming film."
  15. You weren't expecting this, 007. But...BLOFELD'S BACK! Bond will be having kittens as evil foe returns - with double Oscar winner Christoph Waltz tipped to play him "Waltz’s involvement in the new film – which has the working title ‘Bond 24’ – will be confirmed at a press conference to be held in the first week of December. Eon productions, which owns the James Bond film franchise, will announce the star is playing an unknown character called Franz Oberhauser, son of the late Hans Oberhauser, a ski instructor who acted as a father figure to Bond. But senior sources believe the casting is
