Source I think its great that the producers are looking for actors that are willing to make a long term commitment. However, my problem is that bond releases are spread out far too much. Why not release new movies every two years. The way they've been releasing bond 10 years barely gives them time to release three movies. And this was pre pandemic. There was a 4 year gap between piecerce brosan's last movie die another day and Daniel Craig's first movie casino royale. From there it took 2 years to releae quantum of solace and then 3 years to release Skyfall. From there 6 YEARS to release No Time To Die. That's just absurd! 6 years to release a movie that most bond fans were disappointed by. As much as I like Daniel Craig even his star power couldn't save that movie. They took away Bond's essence, that thing that makes him cool they took that away. It should not have taken 6 years to develop that story and turn it in to a feature film. I'm expecting a lot more from the next bond.
It was just reported that 25 bond movies will be made available on Amazon Prime starting on april 15th. I think this is great news for James Bond fans. I actually find it a little disappointing that it took this long because Amazon bought the rights to James Bond a while ago. I'll be very interested to see how Amazon handles the franchise from here. For example will they give it a bigger budget? Will they try to create a James bond universe with multiple agents? Will they consider creating a James Bond/MI6 series that runs parallel to the blockbuster movies? They could of course just continue making big budget international movies. But considering that its Amazon and all the different things they have going on, I imagine that they'll likely use the IP in a variety of different ways. Things like AAA video games, more movies, tv shows, game shows, comic books etc. A lot of things come to mind. Source
No Time To Die is an entertaining movie but for me it's a distant third, behind Casino Royale and Skyfall. It has great cinematography It really does take Daniel Craig's Bond through a complete story arc. Rami Malek has the look of a great villain but he really doesn't do much. Ana de armas was entertaining during her lone sequence as a secondary bond girl but her character was a little lightweight. Lashana Lynch does well in her role, she gets involved in the action and still delivers a good amount of sophistication that we've come to expect from an MI6 agent. All in all as entertaining as No Time To Die is, I suspect that fans will leave theaters wishing they had a little more meat. Some might even be disappointed but it was still a very enjoyable movie.
I hope the success continues once the movie rereleases this week in the U.S. and at the end of the month in China. It appears Daniel Craig is leaving the Bond role with a bang! I did not see this amount of success coming at all, it makes me want to get out and see the movie!
