    I don't mind the title, and the graphics remind me of Dr No for some reason. Is that the David Arnold music again.
    It was either that.....or the priesthood

    I wonder if there will should be
    No Time* To Die

    It's a safe, generic title that will work as the hook or refrain in a pop song. In fact, it reminds me of the theme song for Quantum of Solace (and could be worked into the rejected one by Shirley Bassey, too.) Nothing inspiring or particularly creative. It could be a video game or a parody title. I hope they didn't pay Phoebe Whatever-Her-Name-Is a huge fee to come up with it.

    Sure sounds like it.

    I hope he's back for the whole score this time, I know they use Arnold's arrangement for the gunbarrel.

    Sadly, no. Dan Romer is doing the score.

    Sadly Fukunaga is using his guy. They use Arnold's arrangement for the end titles. I don't believe he did Spectre's gun barrel.

    Dan Romer could be interesting, though it's difficult to say as to my ear his scores are very eclectic and I can't spot a signature so to speak.

    I'm disappointed.

    Live and Let Die was fine, but Die Another Day, Tomorrow Never Dies...c'mon, this is boring as hell. Doesn't create any excitement whatsoever.

    I find the title a bit Meh ? it might grow on me over time but I do Hate the Graphics.

    Not the same but you can’t deny a certain resemblance... :007)
    The name is Walker by the way.

    I think it's high time JBR returns from "retirement". I'm sure they have good reasons for not posting any videos for a long time, but a lot has happened since then and I'm curious about their take on it.

    Anyone else think of the Columbo episode :))

    Agree its bland and Bond by numbers. At least its not as dull as Spectre or as metaphysical as QOS. 5 out of 10 for me but im not that hung up on the title anyway.

    Almost as generic as "Tomorrow Never Dies", to me but I'd be lying if I said both don't have a nice ring to them.
    Considering Spectre or Quantum of Solace were titles in his tenure, I like this one, personally.
    At least this one stands on its own.
    a reasonable rate of return

    Both the title and the font will make NTTD stand out in the crowd of action movies next year. Good or bad, most people will think Bond when they hear No Time to Die. MI, Fast and Furious and other action francises don't use titles like that.
    But among the Bond titles it'll rank as an average or even a little below average title, unlike the font that I think is one of the better ones.

    Just thinking through all 25 bond titles, I think this one might actually be the worst :# I mean, not terrible or anything, but just boring. I've been trying to get used to it, but this title adds nothing new whatsoever. It's basically DAD V2.

    Ok, I'm grateful and relieved that it's not "007" or "Bond" or whatever. So yeah, at least this is an actual title. But it's just boring.

    And for those saying that it's one of the best compared to the rumoured titles.... I actually disagree. It's better than Genoma Of A Woman, but I would put Eclipse, Shatterhand, and A Reason To Die all above it. In fact, it's very similar to A Reason To Die, but even less unique. I dunno, 5 years for this?

    Don't get me wrong, I'm glad we FINALLY have a title. But to me, it is a disappointing one for sure.

    3 random thoughts:
    1 - I wonder if this is the name of Ed Sheeran's already-written bond song lol, and that's why they're using this title.
    2 - Is the word "No" a clue to Dr No returning?
    3 - Is this a tribute to the blade runner villain who died recently? (on the film he says "Time to die").
    1 - LALD, 2 - OP, 3 - AVTAK, 4 - LTK, 5 - FYEO, 6 - DN, 7 - TSWLM, 8 - SF, 9 - DAF, 10 - OHMSS, 11 - GE, 12 - MR, 13 - TMWTGG, 14 - YOLT, 15 - TLD, 16 - GF, 17 - DAD, 18 - TWINE, 19 - TND, 20 - SP, 21 - TB, 22 - FRWL, 23 - CR, 24 - QOS

    1 - Moore, 2 - Dalton, 3 - Craig, 4 - Connery, 5 - Brosnan, 6 - Lazenby

    The graphic design is very contemporary and now, and I can't think of many other films that look that stylish with their typography.

    Well that was a surprise! Title release on some random Tuesday—they really caught us off guard!

    Anyway, I'm quite a fan of it! Easily recognisable as a Bond type title which is great and doesn't give anything away about the film itself.

    The font is the same as that used on The Love Boat...a TV show from the 1970s. Just as the title is the same as that of a Columbo episode from 1992. God knows how contemporary the rest of the film will be!

    Go further back. The typeface is based on something from the 1920s and the title is from a Terence Young/Cubby Broccoli film from 1958.

    Agreed! This title screams Bond. There will be no mistaking it for something else. It's quite nostalgic actually.

    The font they used is Futura Black if anyone is wondering!

    I'm guessing if Bond 26 will be titled Zarak then.

    Is the font/design really very conteporary? I'm no expert, but to me it looks retro. Just to be clear, I think retro is a a good thing in this case. Can you give examples of contemporary media (films, TV, bands, comersials etc.) that uses a font like that one?

    I think the title is awful. In terms of originality - or lack of! - I'd rate it the worst title of the franchise. It's like Eon are taking the piss coming up with such a generic 'die' title. Here are some alternative titles. Perhaps Eon will consider them for Bond 26? :D

    TIME FOR THE FRANCHISE TO DIE

    DIE, BOND, DIE!

    DIE ANOTHER DAY - PART TWO

    DIE PIE SKY

    :D

    For the first minute or so I didn't like it because it sounds generic.

    Didn't take long for me to come around. I love it now. Yes, it has 'die' in the title. But I like that it has multiple meanings:
    - This is no time to die! - I have a mission to complete!
    - I have no time to die! - I'm busy with stuff!
    - Dr No time to die?
    - There is no good time to die..

    Ultimately the film will be judged on it's quality rather than it's title. I'm sure if the spy who loved me was awful we'd hate that title, and if die another day was great we'd love that one.

    It can be contemporary if that retro look is fashionable.
