Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!

I was looking forward to Arnold returning, and while it would be interesting to see someone else take the reigns...Newman wouldn't be my first choice. It makes sense though given his connection with Mendes. I also know about all of his Academy award nominations (I think he has like or something like that). Just never really been a fan of his work. Maybe "SkyFall" will change my mind.

Apparently Arnold is busy being the musical director of the Olympics this year, giving him a limited availability.

Shame. David Arnold, more than any other composer, truly captured the essence of John Barry's classic style. All the others seemed to feel the need to abandon the tradition in favor the style of music "popular" for the times. (And Monty Norman barely had a score for Dr. No!)

Barry was timeless. And Arnold retained that quality, for the most part: the brass, the stings, the style.

@Broc....ahhh that'd explain why we've not had an announcement or follow up to the report he might be returning two December's ago. Good for David.

Drat.

Oh well. Hopefully Skyfall will turn out better than GoldenEye's shambles of a score...

Thomas Newman is no Eric Sierra, so I'm not too worried. Still, it's too bad that Arnold couldn't return. Even his less interesting scores (The World is Not Enough) have been modestly listenable -- and his best scores have been terrific (Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale).

Here's the full November 3rd press conference. Very informative, I think. Mendes mentions a couple actors, the roles of whom he can confirm nothing about...

Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!

Here is a crazy thought about Ralph Fiennes character. Consider he is playing some sort of "government agent" and the movie has something to do with "secrets from M's past", what if he plays M's son (or other relative) who is, presumably, somehow involved with the trouble that occurs in the film?

I could see why they would want to keep the role quiet for now considering that is quite the addition to Bond lore (for lack of a better word). I'm probably wrong, but I'm going to run with that theory for now. Hell, it is a lot more interesting than the "Fiennes is the new M" rumor.

This is supposedly part of the pre-title sequence. This corresponds to the pictures of "M" and Bond sitting in cars.

Scene 35 sounds a bit late to be in the Pre-credits, but I'd guess this is more likely just after the credits (a bit like where King's funeral is placed in TWINE)

Yes, what is the deal with the Bond radio shows? Are they sanctioned and all that or truer to the books and such?
What radio shows are you referring to? The only ones I'm aware of were adaptations of the novels. There was one done on Moonraker in the 1950s and there have been a few one-off book adaptations in more recent years. Presumably unless they're fan-made they were licensed by Ian Fleming Publications (owners of the literary copyright). Or could you be referring to radio broadcast of audio books? That happens quite often in the UK, especially on BBC Radio, in which case those would be the audio books you can find on sale pretty much anywhere.

Anyway, looking at the cast list it looks pretty strong. I like the fact we've got a British Bond girl again assuming that's Naomie's character (Naomie Harris is of Jamaican heritage but was born in London). Discounting Gemma Arterton's cameo in Quantum of Solace I don't think we've had a real British Bond girl since Diana Rigg. Seriously - check out the nationalities of the actresses since OHMSS; Mary Goodnight was British but the actress I believe was Swedish. And I'm not counting villains or eye candy like Caroline Munro in Spy Who Loved Me. Maybe I'm missing one - it can't have been THAT long.

It would be an interesting twist to make Moneypenny the Bond girl this time around. Would be a nice way to reintroduce the character.

Ooh! I had an idea that the credit sequence ends with a union jack and then we dissolve to the cloth union jacks
