well disregarding rumors over cast not wanting to come back , these movies never made any real money

It's time for EON to announce the title of their next Bond mess already.

They don't usually do that until much closer to the release date. When were the press conferences announcing the titles of Skyfall and SPECTRE?

At this rate I wouldn't be surprised if they don't make this film at all. Why on earth is Craig coming back again? He made more than enough money with previous four dull performances.

I think it'll be another SPECTRE, thrown together at the last minute. EON have always been a bit "seat of their pants" which is why the films are so wildly variable in quality. That didn't matter so much when they were putting out a film every year or two. But with these 4 or 5 year gaps between films, you'd think they'd have time to get it right.

I was tempted to post this in Dirty Benny's Firearms Thread, but I feared it might be pushing the boundaries of that thread somewhat. An upcoming auction of movie props and memorabilia features what is believed to be the last surviving prop ray-gun from Moonraker: https://downthetubes.net/?p=103561

I think we should send this birthday cake in June to Broccoli, in honor of her heroic work in ruining her father's franchise :!:

Very interesting! Fun bit of trivia those props were made from UZI sub machine gun toys.

What Babz doesn't understand, her father's formula for film making was gang busters when they still had novels and short stories to glean, not to mention as you say, they were cranking them out every year or two, but if you're going to position yourself as a supposed maker of fine bespoke product, it had better not be sub par!

Can't say I'm surprised, when you hire a self confessed non fan to helm the series which spawned the obsessive fan, then go completely off the reservation with what we know about the characters, then on top of that remake the most beloved story lines in a most ham fisted manner, what would you expect?!

Nearly 300 passengers :shock: aboard the Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas cruise ship were sickened with a stomach virus since it departed Port Canaveral in Brevard County, Florida, on Sunday. A total of 277 guests and crew members have been affected with a gastrointestinal illness, a spokesman for Royal Caribbean Cruises told NBC News on Wednesday. All of the more than 8,000 guests aboard the ship will receive a refund because of the outbreak, said Owen Torres.

It is unknown at this time if the Daniel Craig film that was shown shortly before had anything to do with the outbreak.

other factor may be how the tv series is doing. I’ve heard more about plans for tv than the movies for years. Including a series about Picard.

The second movie ripping off wrath of Kahn and the third about not a hell of a lot besides sulu is gay and Kirk is burnt out, didn’t really help their case for the need for these movies.

The 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' actor "mourns" his days of going to pubs as fame makes it hard to go out drinking and find new places to socialize. He said: "I mourn it slightly. I like to have a drink, and I love pubs and I love finding new pubs and places to socialize. But that has a limit on it now." He discovered a failsafe hangover cure which he believes to be the "difference between life and death". He explained: "There's this thing called Pedialyte. It's basically a diuretic; you give it to kids who are dehydrated. If you wake up in the morning and you've got one of those on standby and you down the whole lot...you can carry on drinking!"

How old is this BJ? Isn't this the exact same article from a few weeks ago, just with a few new details?! If it's recent Why are they running it again?
