If Craig's pattern holds, this should be another excellent entry. Sure looks like it could be.

 

Or the fact it's co-written and directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, with a writing assist from Phoebe Waller-Bridge. :p

I dare say that that new trailer looks far & away, much better than the one prior to its initially planned release back in April (for which I had just bought tickets 2 days prior to corona shutting EVERYTHING down!)

 

Looks like a rollicking good adventure story in the vein of old school Bond. Hell of a way to say good bye & adieu to Daniel Craig as my favorite Bond!

I thought that looked mostly like a ton of CGI and a muddled story.  The "we're not so different" thing from the villain reminded me of Austin Powers, much like Blofeld being Bond's adopted brother in Spectre (which is an actual plot point of Austin Powers).  The direction this series took bums me out given how incredible Casino Royale was.  It was such an intimate movie and I consider it the best depiction of the character in the series's history.  Hard to believe that over 14 years we've only got 2 (at best) good films.  Hopefully I'll enjoy this more than it seems, but I'm not digging what they're going for here.

Well I mean it’s not like the series history is littered with nothing but amazing movies. For every great Bond there’s a trash one. And this iteration is 2/4 so far. Also classifying Skyfall as “Good at best”? I don’t know about that

Bloody hell just release it VOD! Cut your loses and move on to the next Bond, product placement covers half your production anyways!

 

If it was Idris Elba they'd put it on VOD.

I’ve been saying to my friends in the exhibition industry that the next shoe to drop will be studios selling finished movies to streaming companies because production delays is leading the streamers to content voids in 2021. There will be MAJOR movies purchased by the streaming services.

 

We are really looking at an odd 2-3 years in terms of production and release of movie/TV content beyond just the issue of theatrical exhibition being completely devastated.

Anyone but Apple!


There isn’t an IP in the universe they could acquire that would convince me to get Apple+. Fuck Apple.

Apple and Netflix were interested in buying "No Time to Die" from MGM, which insists the James Bond sequel is not for sale.

 

$600 million?!?!?!?!?


I’m telling you, these companies are going to spend obscene sums of money buying finished tent pole pics in 2021 because production is so behind and it won’t really get back on track for 18+ months

So what happens at the end of this? Are big budget films still going to be bankrolled to the same extent they were before everything hit the fan? Too soon to tell?

I think big budget stuff will continue to be a thing. The streamers will overpay for stuff and we will eventually see a lot of them go under as the economics of streaming at present are not sustainable. Netflix even underperformed their subscriber growth this previous quarter.


Kinda feels like we are seeing streaming hit the same wall smart phones did where you simply ran out of growth potential in mature markets which left a lot of phone manufacturers on the outside looking in regarding market share.
 

The big guys will be fine, but some of the more recent additions to the streaming space are either going to have to lean hard into their niche or see themselves die off.

 

But you also are seeing the collapse of a 40+ billion dollar segment of the movie business and who knows what that means both short and long term. 
 

IT IS MADNESS
