Re: Aston Martin DB5 Returns

Well that's a welcome addition. Nice that they let him keep the DB5. Wonder if he had to pay taxes on it?

Re: Aston Martin DB5 Returns

Good continuity, seeing as he won it in the card game in Casino Royale. I hope that's the only shout out to the 50th anniversary, unlike all the shameless shout outs to previous films in DAD nine years ago.

Re: Aston Martin DB5 Returns

I'm glad to see this, too. Thought it was a great classic element.

Re: Aston Martin DB5 Returns

Craig might try to change the look of Bond but something never change... So happy to see the legendary DB5!

Never theorize before you have data. Invariably, you end up twisting facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.

Re: Aston Martin DB5 Returns

Pleased to see the DB5 - I hope there is a decent car chase, but one with minimal damage to that beautiful car.  ajb007/martini

Haha, there is no timeline, Craig's Bond is in no way connected with the previous ones, they are making it in a completely different way, so no gadgets at all I thing ajb007/wink

I assume we are running a new timeline in which Bond wins the DB5 as part of an earlier adventure broadly in sync with the real world passage of time. Unless of course recent photos are meant to suggest that we have Catapaulted forward 20 years and that the rest of the movie is told in flash back (damn and I have been trying so hard to restrain myself!)

Always good to see the DB5 however big its role in the film

Indeed.  I'll be presently surprised if it's more than an incidental appearance, as in TND.  I do enjoy watching it being driven fast, though   ajb007/bond

Re: Aston Martin DB5 Returns

no they have to wreck it, like in goldfinger

Re: Aston Martin DB5 Returns

We shall see...  ajb007/shifty  Bond customarily wrecks his duty car, which the DB5 certainly was in GF.  More likely it'll just be show arriving at a function, or simply sitting idle/parked.  I'd like to be wrong!   ajb007/smile

Someone take this fool out and slot him.

Given most aston db5's fetch the far side of 160k these days, and are adored by their very rich and careful owners, I'd say the likeliness of a genuine 5 being 'wrecked' very slim.

And that is very fine by me.

Re: Aston Martin DB5 Returns

As iconic as the car is and as much as I don't want to see it wrecked, somewhere in the end of the second or beginning of the third act the hero's possessions/allies start to get taken out, and it wouldn't surprise me if they decide to do that with the DB5.  It's formulaic but then so are most films today.  But I would like to see the DB5 buck the expectations.

Re: Aston Martin DB5 Returns

This may be unpopular But, I'd like to see the DB5 destroyed. Mabey Bond has to sacrafice it in a chase to save a friend or something similar. As I never felt the Car fitted in with the New series, Nice car and I'm sure Bond was happy to win it. Although IMHO it dosen't go with the T Ford suits etc Craig's Bond should have a modern Car something which can become a modern icon for a new generation.

I completely agree with you Thunderpussy, even though the DB5 is probably my favourite car of all time.

Connery drove it because that was the car for that particular era. Lazenby, Moore and Dalton never drove it and it was only brought back for Pierce Brosnan in 2 of his films to really lay in concrete the fact that Bond was back after being away for so long (I found it funny that it never appeared in DAD as this harked back to so many previous Bond films - yet they forgot possibly the most classic element of all).

Anyway the DB5 appearing in modern James Bond films to me is just so much of a cliche, which again is strange as they have tried to get away from all of those cliches with Craig's more modern Bond.

007 Reporting for Duty.

It also appeared in a deleted scene from The World Is Not Enough.

Re: Aston Martin DB5 Returns

did it? I agree with the others, having the DB5 just brings back to many bad DAD nightmares

I love a ride in the country, don't you?
