Basically I'm glad it'll come out a few days earlier and that I don't have to wait until the weekend after MIB3 released like some trailers are. Because I'm certainly not seeing MIB3.

You know, I just couldn't make it thru 'Quantum of Solace'. And when I actually sat down and TRIED, it all went by in a drowsy blur, so I couldn't tell you what happened if my life depended on it.

Since I really liked 'Casino Royale', I hope this one is more that than 'Solace'....

You might get what you hope for afterall. The director and producers spoke numerous times about how Skyfall will basically continue the path that Casino Royale set.

I think it's too bad about Quantum of Solace, it had ambition and I liked the concept of an angry Bond trying to get back at those responsible for turning Vesper into a double agent. But because of the writers strike the film's story ended up being thin. That's why it's the shortest Bond film and why there's three times more action sequences than Casino Royale had, some of them are actually sequences from previous film drafts that ended up not being used, I think the plane chase was one of them. According to Craig it wasn't really meant to be that much of a sequel either but because of a script that was barely finished they decided to make it a direct continuation that way they won't need to make a huge set up, Bond's just going after the same guys we hear about in Casino. Another factor was its director rejected two scripts before being forced to settle with the third when time was running out with the writers strike.

So yeah, there were a lot of issues behind scenes.

After those troubles and the hiatus caused by MGM's financial problems, it's nice to see Bond looking like it's back on track. It's recently been announced too that Bond 24 had been greenlit for a 2014 release and that Craig will return again. The producers have said they wanna keep him in as long as possible, no doubt listening to former Bond writer Tom Mankiewicz's advice when he told them that they should have him locked up in the role and throw away the key.

I actually thought it was a well shot film. Well, at least when I was able to actually see something before the editor went hyper overdrive in the action sequences.

For a Visual NyQuil, I go for Tomorrow Never Dies and The World is Not Enough. Those looked like generic 90s productions than Bond flicks.

They may have been. But I can honestly say none of it kept me interested in the film.

The only film I had the same experience with was when I saw 'Punisher: War Zone' at the $5 theater. And I had drank a bottle of Captain Morgan's during the first 30 mins.

For a Visual NyQuil, I go for Tomorrow Never Dies and The World is Not Enough. Those looked like generic 90s productions than Bond flicks.

Never saw either.

I too really liked cr. Qos just had many problems with script, and editing style and the writers strike. The film was a mess. But everything I read on production so far. Seems to point to mendes and craig pulling all the stops out and some good comparisons to classic bond. So I hope this turns out to be the craig bond film.

Finally saw the trailer for this ahead of Men In Black 3. Actually looks kinda cool. Not huge on Bond but I'll probably give this one a test drive at some point.

Jumping in with sam as director would seem the best thing. He has been saying a lot of great things for the film. Plus the eon folks have mentioned this is a stand alone film. So it won't matter much if you didn't see casino royale or quatum of solace.

The "Batman Begins" and "Inception" director is a popular contender for directing 007.

In a recent interview Nolan mentioned his interest in directing a Bond film again.

"It would have to be the right situation and the right time in their cycle of things," he said.

He also is known to be a fan of the franchise and take a leaf from the early James Bond films - namely the Ski finale to Inception, which was heavily inspired by "On Her Majesty's Secret Service".

In the past Nolan has told the media he plunders ruthlessly from the Bond franchise.

The director is even rumoured to have met the Bond producers about the possibility of helming a future 007 adventure.
No surprise here, but I don't recall him ever saying outright that he wanted to direct one.

I seen elsewhere folks mention that nolan is a big bond fan. Bond would probably be a something he could do well. But since nolan been more known of having full say in his films. I can't really see him working under eon control. But if mendes film is as good as it looks. Personally I like to see sam take a second crack on bond.

Given that he's supposed to be a huge Bond fan, I think he might be well aware of the fact that he wouldn't have total creative control over a Bond film. They have always been more like collaborative projects, so if he's prepared to put his ego aside and make something that he and the producers see eye to eye then I don't think he'll have too much of a problem.

It's easy to tell with his flicks that he's desperate to do a Bond film enough to inject some Bond traits into Batman. The scenes with Bruce Wayne and Fox are total riffs on the Q scenes right down to the banter like when Bond- I mean Wayne plays with a gadget, something happens and Q- I mean, Fox says "perhaps you should read the instruction manual first".

I would defer to you but I thought I'd read somewhere that the producers had relaxed somewhat since the more formulaic times of the 80's and 90's. They maybe had too strict control over the property which prevented superstar directors from ever getting involved. The notion that kept floating around was that a James Bond film directed by John Woo (since it was the 90's after all), awesome as it may well have been, was never going to be on the table because the producers kept the franchise on too tight a leash. It's hard to argue with that considering how paint by numbers some of the Brosnan movies were.

EON basically runs the films like MARVEL STUDIOS these days, they want to hire good directors who will put in their own stamp, just as long as they approve it and not go too far. The constrictive rules in the 90s was because they felt the Bond films were in a fragile state after a long lawsuit and the negative backlash over Timothy Dalton's films which attempted do what Craig's films are doing now. It wasn't until the success of Bourne and Batman Begins gave EON the confidence to return the series to the more hard edged spirit of the novels, make Bond more human, put aside the cliches that made Bond into a parody.

I think it was the cliches that really hurt the Brosnan era. Connery only said "Bond, James Bond" in three of his six films and ordered a martini "shaken not stirred" once. In Brosnan's films he says those lines in all of them because the filmmakers believed audiences expected it and no less. So it's nice to see Craig's films so far not being so constricted and taking risks, for better or worse.

Hey, Stocklivevan, here's an interesting rumor for you:

http://www.examiner.com/article/dark-knight-rises-director-christopher-nolan-interested-directing-bond-film

‘Dark Knight Rises’ director Christopher Nolan interested in directing Bond film
Brandon Jones
Comic Book Movies Examiner

One of the most anticipated film of the summer is the finale of Christopher Nolan directed Batman trilogy, “The Dark Knight Rises,” which lands in theaters next month. In an exclusive “Rises” Empire Magazine, the director discusses some future projects, his failed Howard Hughes film and a possible stint on James Bond.

Via The Playlist, published on Monday, Nolan spoke to Empire Magazine, confirming that a Howard Hughes biopic using Michael Drosnin’s "Citizen Hughes: The Power, the Money and the Madness" as source material is now defunct. Nolan joked about Bruce Wayne filling the void.

"Luckily I managed to find another wealthy, quirky character who's orphaned at a young age."

While the “Inception” director appears to have a pretty empty plate, other than producing Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” Superman reboot, he mentioned interest in directing a James Bond film.

"It would have to be the right situation and the right time in their cycle of things."

Nolan does cite Bond as a key influence in "Batman Begins" and the "Inception” final sequence in the snow inspired specifically from “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.” Moreover, the “Insomnia” director appears to have met with MGM about working on the franchise in the past, so a Nolan reboot could be around the corner in a few years.

The special "Dark Knight Rises" issue of Empire, with much more from the director, is on newsstands now.

“Rises” stars Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine, all returning to reprise their roles from the first two Batman films. Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Pence and Marion Cotillard join the cast for the Batman conclusion.

“The Dark Knight Rises” opens in theaters on July 20,, 2012.

Beat you to it like five posts ago. Wink

In some ways, he might be a better fit for James Bond than Batman, if his constant "I love Bond" quotes don't tell you enough. But like I said earlier, he'd have to play EON's game if he wants to direct. We'll see though. A 24th Bond film has been officially scheduled for a Fall 2014 release date, and as far as I know Sam Mendes has not stated whether he'd return for a second go. So if he declines an offer to return, Nolan might have a chance. EON has been very open to directors like him lately so who knows. Nolan doesn't seem to have any solid plans after TDKR either. We'll see.

Well its bbeen a long time since a bond director done back to back films. But I rather keep same on bond for another go if this one is big. It would be a good thing for eon I think and for craig. As for nolan I still wouldn't mind him on bond. But if it happens it still probably be yrs from now. And I still can't really see nolan fully working within eon control. But who knows where things will go.
