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.
