That’s interesting since the title for the Indy 5, which will include the triumphant return of middle aged Short Round, has been revealed as...

“Indiana Jones And No Time For Love”

Apparently, both Bond and Indy have no time for anything.
Considering Ford will be 80 by the time they film it, it will likely be, Indiana Jones and Get those pesky kids off my lawn!

Get McCartney back and put that title to song and all will be well.
When you were young and your heart was an open book, you used to say time to die (you know you did, you know you did, you know you did) but if this ever-changing world in which we live in makes you give in and cry, say no time to die. No time to die.

The makers of the new 'James Bond' movie have filmed three different endings.

Only director Cary Joji Fukunaga is allowed to know which ending to the new 'No Time To Die' movie will be used to avoid leaks coming out before the film's release.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper of the movie - which stars Daniel Craig in the titular role: "Everyone's in the dark, the secrecy is off the chart."


Meanwhile, Naomie Harris - who reprises her role as Eve Moneypenny - previously revealed that the new Bond film will shock audiences.

The 43-year-old actress said: "It's a tie-up of 'Skyfall' and 'Spectre'. But with massive, massive surprises that even had me like, 'Oh, wow!' So I think we're going to really shock people ... I would say he's [Bond's] reconnected with his heart. We're definitely seeing a Bond who's more in touch with his feelings and more open to falling in love. At the end of 'Spectre' there are women he gives his career up for: there's no more emotional attachment that that. It's just about moving with the times and recognising that women can no longer be seen as eye candy."


The film - which will be released next year - is expected to be Craig's final film as 007, and the 51-year-old star described working on the series as a "wonderful" experience.

----------------------------------


Well if they are filming fake endings clearly it's a Bond death rumor they are trying to create mystery over one way or the other.

Oh and Daniel Craig has not been eye candy for women? LOL
Get off the high horse!

They should pull a "Clue" and release all three endings in different theaters.

And yea, all Bond movies have been about eye candy for everyone. Every Bond actor has been at least partially chosen for sex appeal, along with all the Bond girls. They're spy movies about machismo, murder, and sex; shocker, the actors and actresses are pretty.

meh. DC has done well with Bond but I feel he is played out. This looks like a rehash of the last few

Not a big fan of the rebooted Bond films- they are great action films and well made, but it is Bond in name only for me.
WHen I see Bond, no matter who the actor is, I like the fact I am watching the guy who stormed a hollowed out volcano to save the world- over the top grandious villians and epic plans which must be stopped for the sake of all humanity. Dumping all that history when they decided to reboot the series was their choice and it took the series in a different direction
This one does look interesting- lots of nice action set pieces and well worth the watch

I first liked the direction. Casino Royale was a good movie. But I've never accepted Craig as Bond. It's not that I don't like him but he just can't be as charming as Moore, Connery or Brosnan. I really liked Brosnan and I love Goldeneye, my all time favorite Bond. But he had some bad scripts to deal with. And the new Bonds aren't pretty good either, except the first one. I don't even remember the second one with Craig.

Trailer does not look to bad, I have to admit.

But overall IMHO the Mission Impossible franchise kind of replaced Bond for me. I really loved every part of it except M:I2

I read somewhere that the new Bond films lacked the traditional humor found in all the older ones to avoid being compared to the Austin Powers films.

Casino Royale was excellent.
Quantum of Solace was meh.
Skyfall was excellent.
Spectre was meh.

If the pattern holds, this will be excellent.

I enjoy Craig as Bond. He brings a grittiness to the character that I believe a “real” James Bond would actually possess. The films also have, in my opinion, plots that are a bit easier to suspend my disbelief for.

I don’t enjoy too many of the older Bond films. They are so over the top that they come across almost as a farce, or a parody. The comparison to Austin Powers, honestly, isn’t that far off the mark.

Yeah they needed to start again with a fresh actor playing James Bond 2 movies ago IMHO. Craig is just cashing a check here. Wrapping up his series of films is pointless. The ending of the last film would have been just fine.

Casino Royale is my favorite Bond film (followed by Goldeneye) because it feels like Ian Fleming's novel Bond, which is a more serious character who is very much a stone cold killer. I've never been a big fan of Craig as Bond. To be honest I figured he'd do it for a few films and move on. I did not expect him to play the character for this long.

I'm not terribly happy with the direction they are intending to go after this movie.

Re: Craig will be Bond again


I hate that theory. There's no need for that at all. If they want to mix things up with different actors of differing races/ethnicities they should either reboot every time they change actors (which I also hate), or use the 007 title as an excuse. The series doesn't necesarily need a James Bond.
Well, I also hate the "code name" theory -- seeing as all the films through Brosnan's run clearly presented him as the same man. But I don't think they need to reboot or mess with the 007 title. They've frequently shifted the tone of the films over the years, in various directions, without doing any of that, and I see no reason to do otherwise going forward. I hated the idea that they were rebooting the series in Casino Royale, although I have enjoyed Criag in the role. I didn't like the idea of the reboot because, even though continuity had been rather slight over the years, they still periodically referenced the events of On Her Majesty's Secret Service, and that was important to me. I can't really identify with Bond through the crazy stunts he performs, or his charm, or all the women he beds, per se. However, him having lost a woman he truly loved enough to marry her -- I've done that. I can identify. It is why I view Bond, despite the undeniable "cool factor" he embodies, as a tragic character. I was sad to see them brush that aside. They tried to give Craig's Bond the same sort of resonance with Vesper, but it just wasn't the same for me.

I’m excited for it. My 2 of my favorites are Batman and Bond so I’ve had to get used to the idea of multiple actors playing them over the years.

I’ve really enjoyed Craig’s version of Bond and this last one doesn’t seem to disappoint. Fingers crossed that it’s as enjoyable as the trailer.

On another note, I don't buy for a second that the Bond film series going forward won't feature a male actor playing a character named James Bond who will be referred to as Agent 007. Want to spin off a new series with a female MI6 agent (of whatever race)? Fine; I'd probably watch that, too. Want to make a one-off or try for a second fanchise with some sort of alternate universe "Jane Bond" 007 who is female? That could be interesting and fun -- especially if they make that a period piece. Such a character could have both interesting problems to overcome as well as certain possible advantages in that line of work (I think describing Bond as a "spy" is a misnomer -- whatever else you think of Die Another Day, I think that one said it best when one of the villains called him "a British assassin"). Could the market support two versions of the same character with such obvious differences? I don't know. But I honestly can't believe that EON would be so foolish as to abandon the core element of the franchise. Barbara Broccoli has gone on record as saying "Bond is male. He’s a male character. He was written as a male and I think he’ll probably stay as a male. And that’s fine. We don’t have to turn male characters into women. Let’s just create more female characters and make the story fit those female characters.”

I'm sure some people are calling Barbara Broccoli names for daring to suggest such a thing though.
