No Time To Die (James Bond #25)


Recommended Posts

I had that problem, with INTERSTELLAR. Even allowing for the fact that I saw it in IMAX, it was far too loud, and the dialogue was often incomprehensible. Thinking back, it didn't seem to have much of a dynamic range, which might have played a part.

At least with home cinema, one is able to boost the centre speaker output.

All that really matters is who's doing the score!  Come on EON, man up and hire David Arnold!   I doubt that will be announced tomorrow, but maybe.

Those are fantastic!

Absolutely a benefit of home cinema, being able to control the volume. But the problem with Tenet isn't dialogue buried in the mix, it's the dialogue itself being muffled and incomprehensible. Boosting the center channel wouldn't have improved anything; it's as if they only used on-set audio and didn't ADR anything, regardless of whether dialogue was intelligible or not.

 

Just a horrible film experience. Enough to make me avoid any Nolan movie theatrically from now on, if he thought this was acceptable.

Does the financial viability of the studio rely on this film being a massive success?

 

Well, it's MGM, so yeah, it does. Unlike Disney, Warner, Universal, etc., they don't have other movies as big as No Time to Die, this is their only blockbuster for the foreseeable future. I wasn't surprised when they tried to get some fast cash by selling the movie to streamers a few months ago. They need this movie to do extraordinarily well for them.

And there it is ... a gap between series entries that will now equal the one from LTK to Goldeneye. Makes one nostalgic for when they came along every 2 years ... I can only hope the time is being used for casting work on the 7th lead actor and the writing of movie no. 26.

The biggest downside to this (aside from the horror of the rampaging virus throughout the world) is that this move will further delay any future Bond expansions from LLL. If I were EON I’d be getting legacy stuff out there to remind people Bond exists.

No Time To Die will require reshoots because by the time the film’s finally released, the gadgets will be noticeably outdated

 

Quote

The details of the gadgets and things are all kept tightly under wraps, but everyone knows that James Bond always carries the latest kit with him. The problem is that some of those things were the very latest models back when they started filming. But by the time the movie comes out now it will look like Daniel Craig and all of the other cast members are carrying something that has been out for ages. That isn’t really the point of these deals. The big tech firms want the stars to have all the new up-and-coming products to help promote them and sell them to fans. It means some of the scenes are going to have to be very carefully edited and looked at to bring things up to date.

Are reshoots that necessary for just a couple of gadgets? Seems like something you could easily do in the edit. Besides, I think people will be fairly understanding with this being a film that was made for an earlier release in mind, so it just seems like an odd thing to put more money into (besides tech companies demanding it).

It's about specific product placement: The companies who paid for their products to be in the film want 2021 versions of their products in the film now, not 2019 versions

Well Nokia is one of them

 

Quote

One such vendor is cell phone manufacturer Nokia, who have gone as far as shooting an ad to promote their “latest” model with Lashana Lynch’s Nomi. However, the ad you’re about to see ran in September, in anticipation of a November 2020 release date; which means this phone is probably in the public’s hands, and doesn’t feel as exotic or Bond-ian.

Movie post-production being directly interfered with purely because of product placement is a rather sad dent in artistic expression in film

Have you seen MOONRAKER?

The entire  film is designed to incorporate product placements- in major scenes!😰

The phone looks CGI there too :lol:

 

Wouldn't be surprised if they already updated the phone model for the ad's release last year, if this was shot during the film's production in 2018 (!)

 

If the film actually releases this November, it will be 3 years after production start (a full year longer than the gap between Craig's first two Bond films!)

 

I wonder if they regret parting ways with Danny Boyle after spending all that time developing his version.

Yes, it is scheduled to open on Sept. 30 here in Brazil.

But with the terrible current status of the pandemic here and slow progression of the vaccine program I think I'll wait for the streaming at "Paramount+" that reached an agreement with MGM:

The Billie Eilish song won the Grammy for "Best Song Written For Visual Media" last night

 

I'm too lazy to research, but I wonder if this is the first time the winner for that category is for media that didn't actually come out yet

That is a pretty good question. If I am not mistaken one aspect of this category should be, if the song actually fits or supports the media in an appropriate way and not only if it is a nice sounding song.

Ok. At a James Bond movie you know more or less what to expect.But that is in a way unfair for other media who first have to proof that the song fits by being published already.

They gave out awards, for that? I thought it just earplugs.

A lot of people seemed to dislike the song and I have to admit that despite being okay with it on a first listen 17 months ago, the singer makes the rounds in tabloidy articles in the Post as a miserable green-haired Antifa girl, which has slightly soured it for me.

I've seen some 'doing it her own way, sticking it to *The Man* ' reporting on Eilish ... the fact that her single 'Bad Guy' is the current soundtrack of the massive corporate entity BT's ads seems to have passed these people by.
