I hope Eon is listening.
If he does get to see the film, I hope Eon lets him watch it with Daniel Craig.
So terribly sad. I do think about all the James Bond fans that must have passed in the time waiting for NTTD's release. I hope and pray this gentleman gets his dying wish🙏
That's sad, I hope Eon do the right thing.
I bet they do it. It's great publicity and fosters good will.
Believe this was done for a fan for the final Star Wars film.
It's the right thing to do both morally and financially.
Is there anything we can do to help?
I hope EON makes this happen. It would also be very easy to do from a technical standpoint also (and could be done quickly). Any theater or screening room with a digital cinema projector could be provided with a DCP of the film (which how all commercial digital projection works) and the film could be shown.
If EON has any concerns with regards to leaks, pirating, etc they could just use trusted techs who have seen the film already (I am sure it has been screened for the producers and studio brass, etc) and of course it would just be a very private screening for the gentleman anyway.
I hope it happens too.
Very impressed with all the Bond community creators, many who frequent these pages, seen so many great things done in support of this in the last few days...so Chapeau to you all.
This doesn't appear to have worked. And I can't say I'm surprised. Eon are much more insular than other studios. Disney/Marvel, for example, are much more PR-savvy (just one example: filming a sketch with Spiderman cast in which new title is revealed).
From what I have read, Barbara Broccoli has a reputation for being very kind and generous. I would hold out some hope that maybe EON did something very quietly, off the radar screen rather than using this as an opportunity for good PR or promote the film. I don't see how Disney/Marvel being PR-savvy relates to an act of kindness and generosity except if that would be the motivation to do an act of kindness I guess it is the outcome that counts. Unfortunately, too many times than not, that's the world we live in.
I wasn't suggesting that PR was the reason Disney do this, but that they're more public-facing than Eon, who can appear quite detached and standoffish.
