    Maybe this info is not correct

    I think I heard something similar. They spent a lot of money on making the film look great. I think Spectre was the best-looking Bond film in a very long time, but looks don't matter without substance.

    Have to agree with that, Matt S....a few extra quid spent on the script would (should) have made all the difference -{

    Writing is so important, yet it's such a small part of the budget in an action film. But spending £40 million on writing won't guarantee anything except overpaid writers.

    Wow ! You think a "few extra quid" equates to £40m :o wouldn't mind emptying your bins at Christmas :))

    I was just trying to compare how far a little money can go in writing with how little a lot of money can go with action.

    I've always been crestfallen by the writer's low position in the filmmaking food chain :# Particularly since he lays the foundation on which the entire project must stand. Or not.

    His ongoing commentary on SP, after writing perhaps the second worst review the film got, has been interesting to follow.

    Also interesting is that he clearly expects one more from Craigger.

    It's possible. EON have stated that pre-production in it's earliest stages begins in April 2016. If they have the barebones of a story or even a script ready now (based on the speculation that SPECTRE was going to be two movies filmed back to back) then they could easily be ready to shoot by December of this year which would allow for a Nov 2017 release.

    Craig might be keen to get the last one over and done with.
  • JagJag Posts: 1,166MI6 Agent
    I'm not saying it's impossible. It would be unusual, but I don't think anyone here would complain!

    He should stick to financial analysis. When it comes to reviewing Bond films, his head is clearly up his......... :)) -{

    It's available through streaming and comes out in video format next week, but SPECTRE is still making a little money at the U.S. box office. As of January 4, it stands less than $476,000 away from making a full $200 million during its theatrical run. Come on, dollar-movie-goers!

    There's the story of the screen writer who was on the set when a young starlet started flirting with him. He told her she wasting her time--he was only the screen writer, and she walked away in disgust.

    I think it was a Billy Wilder story.

    One reason that screen writers don't get the recognition they deserve is because film is a visual medium. Producers and directors believe they can take a second-rate script and still make a good film through the acting, directing, editing, etc.

    This, sadly, usually turns out to be untrue.

    I wonder what the Sony/MGM/Eon execs are thinking right now...... remember reading somewhere that sometimes actors get bonuses if films cross certain thresholds...
    Yes. Consssssiderably.
  • HardyboyHardyboy Posts: 5,750Chief of Staff
    And it's still squeezing out money at the box office! Just $385,000 more and it will reach $200 million in the U.S.!

    Despite having been released in the U.S. four months ago and now being available through DVD/BluRay and streaming, SPECTRE is still in some theaters. If it can make just over $93 thousand from the dollar theaters and college showings, it will make $200 million.

    It's not that it's STILL in theaters. It was re-released for the express purpose of getting it to 200 million. At 200 million Sony can charge more for cable and streaming rights. Greedy move.

    I hope it makes it so the producers and the studio can get their money's worth but I seriously doubt it will, as January\February was when this movie hit the dollar theaters.
    Yes. Consssssiderably.

    Certainly just business, but a bit crass and I can't say I'm losing sleep over them falling short of their goal :))

    Looks like it will crawl over 200 million in US

    box-office mojo has it at $199,959,126

    We should have a gofundme effort to pay for a few U.S. AJB members to keep going until it tops the $200m mark.

    Yes, we want them "Perfectly Rounded" {[]
