No Time to Die

No Time to Die

So let me get this straight...

- Spectre gets mixed reviews and doesn’t perform as well as Skyfall
- Contract for Bond franchise ends with Sony, now we homies with Universal (you know, the home of Fast and Furious and Dr. Seuss)
- Daniel Craig says he’d rather slit his wrists than play Bond again
- Danny Boyle signs on to direct, quits, then in comes Cary Joji Fukunaga
- Scrambling around with different writers leaving and coming back
- Creative differences galore
- All of the above delays this from 20something to 2019
- Production officially starts in just April of 2019
- Craig breaks his ankle and has to get surgery
- An explosion damages a stage at Pinewood and injures a crew member
- Cary Joji is hours late to set one day because he’s too busy at home playing Red Dead Redemption (this is a true story, look it up)
- Filming wraps after nearly a year
- The original composer replaced, but by Hans mothaflippin Zimmer
- Delayed from November 2019 to February 2020 and again to April 2020
- A worldwide pandemic
- The first movie to get delayed because of COVID, with other studios and their movies following suit
- Because of prolonged marketing and studio demands, MGM could lose up to $50 million and that’s not even potential box office losses
- Cineworld, dependent on the film’s release and success, closes for good
- Amazon wants to buy MGM and putting this movie on a streaming service is now legitimately being considered

Yeah I’m excited to see this but you can’t deny this movie is CURSED. The bruh moment to end all bruh moments. At this point it would be freakin hilarious if it’s actually really good.

EDIT: holy balls thank you for 500 likes, and no I won’t forget about Daddy Deakins jumping ship
