Nice little homage taken from a latter day Connery film, watch with sound up.
Someone posted this bit of fluff on the Bond films from the Waitrose magazine. No surprises but it's a fun read that throws in a few unexpected points.
Then there's this, of course...
A fun Twitter thread detailing how No Time To Die is really a remake of 1967's Casino Royale!
Copied from this-

Good grief !
Well, we kind of came up with it together 😄
I believe I was the first one to spot the Mata = Mathilde coincidence, so I claim a share of the royalties on that lucrative Twitter thread. you two arent gonna get rich quick without me!
You were decent and honest enough to give me and AJB credit when you used this on MI6 Community. Why not on Twitter?
You’re right, apologies: I missed that at first and went out last night (hence that rather stupid last post of mine!) but put it there on Twitter at the end of the thread when I got back. The credit is indeed yours.
Someone did point out that the Paloma and Scotland scenes in both have parallels (his first mission early in the film, teaming up with a woman we don’t see again in a sort of platonic way) which I liked.
I guess you could also say he’s spurred into action at the beginning of both when a structure close to his heart explodes in his face in both too 😄
Glad to see it's all worked out amicably.
Does that mean I perish from a heart attack imminently? 😁
Either that or cash in on two Thunderball big screen adaptations!
I suppose @caractacus potts can be Jack Whittington...
Thanks, emtiem. Handshakes, kisses and flowers have been exchanged backstage and normality is resumed.
Excellent bit of fan fiction here re the opening scene of The Living Daylights - just a tad wordy but generally very good. Nicely presented, too.
Daniel Craig is trending on Twitter. A new film about to come out? Unlikely, he's not very prolific. Instead, users are having fun with a still that shows him talking about Bond watches for Esquire magazine.
Here's someone's uploaded a behind the scenes shot of the famous chase scene in The Spy Who Loved Me.
Not from Twitter, but this Metro story from last month got me thinking of a certain Brosnan Bond film....
Twitter doesn't always raise the tone.
Brilliant and brief 12 Days of Christmas in style of Bond clip here:
That is excellent 🤣
Not Bond but certainly Twitter this is for Dr Who fans
Not Twitter in this case, but how Smersh is back in the Putin era, from yesterday's Times. 'We Meet Again, Mr Bond: the return of Smersh'.
Writing Bond has a good piece on Bond film plot points - what Bond generally does when he's given an assignment.
