    It's a scandal that Wakanda has only been used as a location in ne single movie - do they offer tax insentives for film productions? :))

    yes but Wakanda is in self-imposed exile from the outside world...
    ...until the final scenes of the new film...
    ...but maybe now T'Challa is in charge he will allow foreign filmmakers access?

    Nice, for some reason it reminded me of DAD.

    In Ballangen in Northern Norway they are planning the world's largest data storage center, demanding 1000 megawatts and an area the size of 84 football fields. It looks cool and it should be possible to write it into a James Bond script.

    Beautiful, beautiful place. Norway seems the perfect choice for a Bond film, too bad Mission Impossible was first.

    Norway seems to have some breathtaking
    Architecture in general. -{

    Rumours on Instagram. Benedict Cumberbatch to be the villian. Dave Bautista posted a photo with image of spectre on his fist.
    Guess we'll be getting more rumours

    I love the fact that it looks influenced by Ken Adams, so life imitating Art reflected back as Art. Po- Mo indeed.

    It does look like something Ken Adams could have made. A data storage center could also be written into a story, or the building could be filmed as something else.

    I do like Scandinavian design and architecture. This is Mortensrud church in Oslo, also seen in the TV series "Occupied".

    Who is Ken Adams? Is he related to John, John Quincy and Samuel? :p

    One of the flak towers constructed by Nazi Germany would be a imposing location for a CIA field office or SPECTRE lair.

    Bloody Hell! These are ugly monstrosities! Not as bad as Silva's lair though!

    There's a garden in Northumberland, that's full of poisonous plants. If Bond 25 were to be named Shatterhand, then they could use material from YOLT novel and use the garden as Shatterhand's garden of death.
    :D Hey! You're from my 'neck o' the woods'! That's got to be the Alnwick Gardens you're referring to?

    The Flaktürme look amazing and should be put to good use in a JB movie :007)

    Great location.

    I think it's time Bond returned to India. This is Jodhpur in Rajastan.

    Srinagar also looks stunning, but it's in the troubled Jammu and Kashmir region.

    The rumours this winter about Dubrovnik in Croatia looked more reliable than usual that early in the process. If the story was true I wonder if it was for the Purvis/Wade script? It does seem more likely than the Boyle/Hodges script, but I guess the city could be written into the new script.

    In the Craig Bond films, the locations were not often chosen by the script but rather by which country provided the most financial incentives. The script is usually forced to use the locations the producers arrange.

    If the Garden of Death is ever filmed (and it should be), I think the glass houses in Kew Gardens could be used as a location. The Garden of Death should of cource be presented as being in some exotic country, ideally Japan, but good editing and filming should take care of that.

    I think many will agree it's time Bond went golfing again. Few golf courses are more spectacular than Lofoten Links in .... you know where. :v
    In fact I dare you to find a golf course in a more spectacular landscape :007)
    At Lofoten Links Bond can go golfing under the midnight sun or with a beautiful woman.

    I'm interested in architecture and traditionally the Bond movies has shown us some beautiful sets and locations. The hotel in QoS was a nice exeption, but we haven't seen much inventive architecture in Craig's tenure. Here are two examples of imaginative architecture from a completely random country:


    Summer House, Valldal, Norway:

    "Weekend House" Herøy, Norway. This house is very exposed to the elements. The boathouse that stood there earlier was blown away in a storm. This house can be completely locked Down.

    The Summer house is truly stunning, very Ken Adams.
