I was never keen on Bond going MIA after being shot by Moneypenny at the start of SKYFALL. And it takes ages for him to get back into the plot and the action. It wouldn’t have happened like that in Roger Moore’s day, I thought… which got me thinking… 1/ 🧵#JamesBond Image
How would they have picked up the story after the titles were done? Straight into Moneypenny’s office, of course! Maybe it would have gone something like this… 2/ ImageImageImageImage

MONEYPENNY: James! Where have you been?

BOND: Recuperating, Moneypenny - from an attempt on my life.

Für das neue @DATUMSDZ habe ich mir die #Stasi-Unterlagen angesehen, in denen der #KGB-Verbindungsoffizier #Putin vorkommt. Für ihn war die Zeit in Dresden 1985-1990 prägend & viele Verstrickungen von #AUT mit dem Kreml haben ihren Ursprung in dieser Zeit…
Interessant ist auch, wie sehr die sowjetische TV-Serie "Siebzehn Augenblicke des Frühling" (1973) Putin beeinflusst hat. Er hat immer wieder auf die Serie & ihren Helden #Stierlitz angespielt
Die Serie ist übrigens auf Youtube mit deutschen Untertiteln zu sehen. Keine plumpe Propaganda. Nur das Tempo ist extrem langsam. Gegen Ende dann sehr spannend. Stierlitz ist der absolute Anti-#JamesBond: Reserviert, schmallippig & melancholisch

After Roald Dahl, it's James Bond's turn to be bowdlerized... Ahead of the reissue of the Bond novels in April, rights holders Ian Fleming Publications commissioned a review by sensitivity readers.… #JamesBond #RoaldDahl
Each Bond book will carry a disclaimer: “This book was written at a time when terms and attitudes which might be considered offensive by modern readers were commonplace. A number of updates have been made in this edition, while keeping as close as possible to the original text.”
Examples of changes to the Bond books: In Live and Let Die, 'a segment in the book describing accented dialogue as “straight Harlem-Deep South with a lot of New York thrown in,” has been removed... In several of the books, ethnicities have been removed.'

#QuantumofSolace has many detractors. Yet the film is full of great images, situations, twists and dialogue.

Let's fly like a bullet through the shortest #JamesBond film.


QoS_001 No gunbarrel. Controversial, but as a direct sequel to Casino Royale, this makes sense. Image
QoS_002 The car chase in the tunnel. Puts the viewer in the driving seat. The divisive editing style begins. Blink and you'll miss the door fly off... Image
QoS_003 The torn-off door is a great idea. #JamesBond seems to be in genuine peril.

Nice that #QuantumofSolace pays homage (?) to the truck chase in #LicencetoKill. Notice @AnthonyStarke in peril. And @RobertJohnDavi not particularly worried at the chaos!

What does playing James Bond, one of the most iconic characters in movie history, mean to Daniel Craig?

“I’d love to give you a very succinct and proper answer to that, but I don’t think I have one,” he says while discussing his move from Bond to Blanc.…
“It’s been a large part of my life and has taken up most of my working life for the past 17, 18 years now,” he says of #JamesBond. “To really put that into some sort of perspective, I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to do it. Really.”… Image
“It’s just too big of a thing to really get into a pithy comment,” he tells Mark Olsen (@IndieFocus).

“It’s not that I’ll not want to, but to sort of sum it up, how does one sum that up?”… Image

The first 12 minute narrative film ever made, which turned out to also be the first #Western ever made!

#BeapartofCinema #HistoryofCinema
the iconic fourth-wall breaking shot that #MartinScorsese paid homage to in #Goodfellas, that may also have inspired the #JamesBond opening……

Author Kim Sherwood is writing a new trilogy of James Bond novels that will expand the 007 universe. The suave spy first appeared in 1953 with the publication of Casino Royale by writer Ian Fleming. Since then, the legacy of #JamesBond has only grown, 007 also has a massive movie franchise that spans 25 movies and nearly six decades. Over the years, several actors played James Bond, yet 007 remained a staple of Hollywood spy thrillers. Daniel Craig is the latest actor to take on the role, which he first played in Casino Royale. No Time to Die marked his final installment in the franchise, leaving many to wonder how the series will continue now that the films have killed off James Bond.

A new mystery is afoot! Benoit Blanc’s latest investigation takes him to the Mediterranean.

#KnivesOut2 has started production on the shores of Greece. Here’s a thread of everything we know about @rianjohnson and Daniel Craig’s new movie. Image
In January of 2020, Rian Johnson talked about what he’d like to explore in a possible #KnivesOut sequel: “I’m always kind of saying, ‘If this movie does all right, I would be thrilled to do another one.’ But a lot has to happen. I have to write a script.” Image
“It’s, ‘What is the next case?’ It’s not about building a mythology around the character,” Johnson said of a potential #KnivesOut sequel in January of 2020.

🔫🤵¡Feliz #DíaMundialdeJamesBond!🤵🔫

❣️Para celebrarlo, les traemos 007 datos de esta saga de películas, uno por cada actor que ha personificado al espía más famoso del mundo y otro extra.
0️⃣0️⃣1️⃣ - Sean Connery (1962 - 1967; 1971)

Un cinco de octubre de 1962 se estrenó la primer película llamada 'Dr. No'.

Connery, nacido en Escocia, impresionó tanto a Ian Fleming, el escritor de las novelas, que en sus últimas obras explicó que Bond era hijo de un escocés. Image
0️⃣0️⃣2️⃣ - George Lazenby (1969)

George, es de origen australiano y no tenía experiencia en la actuación, de hecho se dedicaba al modelaje.

Hasta el día de hoy, es el actor más joven en interpretar a James Bond, tenía solo 29 años cuando grabó 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service'. Image

Abrimos hilo sobre increíbles #maquetas de sets de #cine, un arte tan antiguo como actual y fundamental en el 7º arte.
Comenzamos con esta recreación detallada de Manhattan para #EscapeFromNewYork (1981) del maestro John Carpenter, para la secuencia inicial y tomas aéreas.

Esta es la maqueta escala 1:4 que se construyó para la escena en que el tren atraviesa la vidriera de la estación en #Hugo, de Martin Scorsese (2011), cuyo entorno se completaría después digitalmente.

Algunas de las impresionantes maquetas construidas para el rodaje de "Star Wars: Episodio I - La Amenaza Fantasma" (1999).

1. mi sento ancora una volta in dovere di aiutarvi a capire la questione fondamentale della #sorveglianzaDigitale contro il #COVID, non solo perché sono temi che conosco in modo profondo,ma perché ho preso coscienza della questione #DatiSanitari per una vicenda personale
2. rispetto #FiorenzaSarzanini,ma con tutto il rispetto NON è possibile pensare di imbarcarsi in un programma di #sorveglianza di 60MILIONI di italiani premettendo "vedremo se funzionerà", poi "se qualcuno avrà sbagliato, pagherà". Qui sono in gioco questioni cruciali
3. voglio premettere che,personalmente, NON sono una fanatica della #privacy:come giornalista,ne ho una profonda conoscenza e coscienza,perché ho il dovere professionale ed etico di proteggere le persone che parlano con me: le mie fonti

#GameofThrones used #Iceland's #Thingvellir Park as the #BloodyGate. Its landscape is caused by the Eurasian and #NorthAmerican tectonic plates meeting there and pulling apart at a rate of 2 cms per year. This made a rift valley: low land between 2 separating continents.
#nspoli ImageImageImageImage
#MagheramorneQuarry, #NorthernIreland, is the set for #CastleBlack and #TheWall in #GameofThrones. The quarry wall is used as a backdrop and effects make it look huge.
The site's limestone was used to make cement. #NS has a limestone quarry and cement plant in Brookfield.

Abrimos un hilo con carteles de cine pintados a mano en Ghana: los encargan a artistas locales porque no les llegan los posters oficiales y les dan "toque especial" que los convierten en verdaderas obras de arte con estilo propio

Empezamos fuerte con #ET (Steven Spielberg 1982 )
#SeñoraDoubtfire ( Chris Columbus 1993 )
Si ya es inquietante lo de la escoba, lo es aún más Robin Williams saliendo del suelo y cogiéndose el pie a sí mismo disfrazado...

#Cujo ( Lewis Teague 1983 )
Pues oye, dan ganas de rascarle la tripa y achuchar al 'perro asesino' que tan malo no parece...

Mi propósito para 2020 será el mismo que tuve en 2019 (ver una película al dia) peeeeero para subir la apuesta añadiré ver también toooodos los extras de las pelis que tengo en formato físico. Sí, eso incluye todas las pistas de audiocomentarios.
Tengo más de 180 largometrajes
Empiezo con #SilencioDesdeElMal y resulta que no tiene extras. Not bad, así compenso cuando me toque ver las docenas de horas de extras de la trilogia de El señor de los anillos. La revisión me da que pensar lo que le gusta a James Wan las viejas chungas y moñecos creepys
Contiene cortos animados con anécdotas de los creadores, un video de Buzz en la @NASA_es y el globo de Buzz en el desfile de acción de gracias de New York. Bravo por la originalidad de contenidos. Revisionar #ToyStory por enésima vez es gloria

El largometraje animado más antiguo que se conserva es "Las aventuras del príncipe Achmed" (1926), escrito y dirigido por la pionera animadora alemana Lotte Reiniger. Dura 65 minutos, el original estaba coloreado y empleaba una técnica de siluetas móviles que ella inventó. #cine
Las ondas en el vaso de agua fue uno de los efectos especiales más complejos de conseguir en #ParqueJurásico (1993). Tras probar muchas opciones finalmente se hizo haciendo vibrar una cuerda de guitarra bajo el coche.

#ApocalypseNow (1979):
- El rodaje en Filipinas duró 15 meses
- El material rodado superó las 250 horas
- Francis Ford Coppola se arruinó para acabar la película
- Martin Sheen sufrió un infarto durante el rodaje
- Coppola amenazó con suicidarse 3 veces

In my research since the #NXIVMtrial ended almost 4 weeks ago, I discovered that #NXIVM #Mexico was/is MASSIVE, with ties to
#Hollywood (JamesBond?!)
and #Media
They HAD (still HAVE?) big plans…
2/ During the trial, Mark Vicente testified that Keith Raniere bragged that #NXIVM was so massive, with so many interconnected companies under the NXIVM umbrella, that it couldn’t be taken down.
Well, even the US Gov’t said it was big…
Much discovery evidence>sealed.
3/ So how big was (is) it?
Remember the Sony Hacks(?!)
In 2015, it was revealed via those leaked emails that the Mexican government paid $20 million (in form of tax breaks etc) to Sony/MGM for a script rewrite on the upcoming James Bond film, Spectre:…
