Deadline have confirmed that NTTD is likely to move from April to Autumn....Which is both a shame and inevitable:

I suppose that means the film will arrive somewhere between August (optimistically) to December (pessimistically)

New photo (or a better version of something we have seen before), can anyone guess if this a screengrab or a publicity still?

Unusual request....

could someone help me find the screencap from Tomorrow Never Dies that has a caption introducing the 'HMS Bedford.' I don't think the caption is in the normal DVD of the film, but it is visible in the Blu-Ray. I also think the caption should be available of the version of Tomorrow Never Dies that is on YouTube for all those American fans with access to those videos.

Thank you!

In the behind the scenes video narrated by Cary Fukunaga, is it Daniel who does the slide over the car or is that a stunt double? It's a cool little stunt....

I always wondered what people thought of the airport sequence. CR was the first Bond film to openly address a post-9/11 world. The villain's plot even involves the manipulation of stocks by causing an attack on a plane.

The imagery of an attack on an airport is surprisingly bold and probably one of the more 'political' moments in the series. I suppose it gives the film some real world context as attacks on airports were not obscure threats at the time. What do we think? Was it too political?

I suspect it probably wasn't. It could have been if they hired a Muslim actor to play the terrorist but it was savvy move to not make the terrorists ideologues. Instead we get smart looking European businessmen who see terror attacks as a means of feeding their bottom line. Men like Carlos and Mollaka are hired for their skills in building bombs (we are even told they are not 'true believers' in any cause) and are financially motivated.

Nonetheless, the politics of the piece are present....

(Also, are there any Italian speakers out there? Could you help with translate this interview with Santamaria: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msf2NZUbrwU Thank you!

Don't know about politics and all, but the end of this long airport scene is one of my favourite moments in cinema ever.....this evil grin at the end is what makes Daniel best Bond. When I watched it the first time I was "oh hell now what?" And then that look......

There is zero politics to it. It was just timely to have an action sequence at an airport. I mean, Carlos wasn't exactly trying to kill innocent people.

After all, the framing of the attack is different as it isn't a hijacking - which would more closely link it to 9/11 - instead, Carlos has been hired to plant a bomb. He's clearly a professional doing a job.

I guess he is Italian as Claudio Santamaria is Italian and he's credited as 'Carlos'. Though the name badge is probably fake, though it may have been his name (Mollaka and Hinx are credited despite never being named onscreen).

I never really considered his ethnicity before. Given the context of the film, I'd have assumed him to be Southen European, considering the rest of the film plays out in Europe and the guys running the organisation are European.

I think Claudio Santamaria was cast as he looked creepy.

Does anyone speak Italian?

Sweet 😀
The top notch acting in the Weisz/Craig/Spall 'Betrayal' is emotionally true, often v funny and its beautifully staged with filmic qualities..

I really want this movie now. Though I want to see it in cinemas too! I think Cary Fukunaga has really given Daniel the 'movie star' treatment with the lighting and angles for this film. I'd love to see that Fallon tv spot in HD because this shot of Daniel looks so sumptuous
