In a recent tweet, Deadline Senior Film Reporter Justin Kroll claimed that John Krasinski was not Marvel Studios' "first choice" to play Reed Richards in "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness." Instead, Kroll says that Marvel originally intended to have former James Bond actor Daniel Craig appear as the Fantastic Four leader in the film, but those plans changed when Craig backed out of the project because he didn't want to risk getting COVID-19 and giving it to his family.

Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards on NBC saw the lowest audience in the show’s decades-long history, becoming the latest award show to suffer decreased ratings this year, at only 2.11 million viewers. The lack of talent is stark in the 21st century and Sean Combs bombed as host with these dismal results as hardly anyone cares about this garbage........Rejecting his title as "host" (and "vibe curator") of the Billboard Music Awards, Diddy instead declared that he was "not even a human being," having evolved past his human form and ascended to full-blown "frequency" status. :shock:

Screenrant had someone named Jeremy Crabb write this: Boyle's narrative certainly could have had some potential to be a solid Bond outing, but after seeing Fukunaga's final product, it's hard to see how Boyle's film could have matched the emotional nuance of No Time to Die. The 25th Bond film really feels like the perfect note for Craig's 007 to end on before the next James Bond actor fills in his shoes. Bond's arc is a perfect culmination of his five-movie saga and the themes of loss and heroism that made his interpretation of the character so memorable.

Love how these circle jerking idiots like to pretend these tragedies weren't strung together haphazardly, last minute in the final two films.

P.S. Cary Funkyfinger's film stole heavily from Boyles narrative, so much so he should have gotten a writing credit, certainly more deserving of one than the Carebear himself!

Forget Sean Connery and Roger Moore, Brosnan, 69, has emerged as the favourite among past Bonds excluding Daniel Craig, according to the viewing preferences of Amazon Prime Video subscribers. Amazon released the entire collection of 27 Bond movies to its estimated 12.6 million UK subscribers last month. Brosnan’s four films all featured in the top 11 after nearly a month on the streaming service. GoldenEye ranked in fourth place behind three Craig outings, including No Time To Die, which premiered on Amazon in April and unsurprisingly topped the list. ------this just confirms that this current generation does not even bother to watch the origin films in the series from its inception.

Actually brosnan showing up is amazing after the pr campaign to trash his legacy and the critics who still trash it just because that’s where they are mentally, never really like bond but can’t just say it.
Brosnan is being given a chance by Craig generation and they seem to like it. I bet the other streaming number on Netflix and others probably had good brosnan number as well.

Craig movies ought to be a little higher in the Amazon ranking just with being newer “block busters” against other newer movies

Seems strange to fork out all that money for MGM's back catalogue and not take advantage of it, though. I can understand them pulling the two non-EON ones, but TSWLM and Craig's least bad movie?

I think they are trying to keep interest up in the series with the idea it can go back into the vault at anything . Or maybe sell them as a collection on Amazon. Eon was bad about over selling the catalog to movie channels and streaming, when we weee kids me and my brothers watched these movies on TBS , who was there go to in the us, dad I think was the last movie to be bought for broadcast to the one of the big three over the air stations.

We bought the 4K versions streaming on Vudu and a few on Apple. Nobody else had them at the time and I don’t believe there is a set of them on 4K disc anywhere

I think Omega is on to something, Bezos is pulling a Disney, tossing films into the "vault" in order to make our "hearts grow fonder." I imagine they'll be getting re-released again once the streaming content (Amazing Race type game show) goes live. Then back in the box until the next bit of "content" needs a boost.
