I'll tell you what's really upsetting me... The number plate on that Range Rover has been hastily stuck over it's real registration, which has the blue EU identifier panel to the left and is clearly visible under the new plate.

No it isn't; the blue is on the plate- it's just that it only appears around the edges because it's been bleached out by the flash.

Thanks, but...I was just being facetious.

This is the typical type of VIP escort for senior officials (in this case, HRH The Prince of Wales); I think it's going to be M's escort that becomes compromised in some way.

Re: Photos of Bond from the set...

Okay; not feeling well today- perhaps I'll understand that joke when I'm feeling better.

I dunno if it's VIP escort any more than the Rangey Sport in Quantum was VIP; you've just got to pick from either a Jag or a Land Rover if you're in a Bond flick! ajb007/smile

the film won't be defined by a shot of a bearded craig in a random photo or two.

Connery wig was often obvious though did not make some of his movie's any less great.

True, but Tanner is driving the Range Rover with Bond in the back, and M is in the back of the XJ*.  Just a hunch, but could be wrong.  ajb007/smile

Oh that's fun; that's an underground car park they're driving into there, isn't it? I know that road but I've not driven down there.

Re: Photos of Bond from the set...

I don't know too much about Skyfall yet, but I have to say..it is SO good
to see so many old friends back and talking about a new Bond movie.

Finally!!!

Ok go back to arguing! ajb007/wink

Re: Photos of Bond from the set...

Could this be test footage that somehow required participation of the principle actors?  It's not just DC that looks unprepared for the camera.

Re: Photos of Bond from the set...

no socks...rolled up chinos...maybe he has been undercover in a new look store?

42

Re: Photos of Bond from the set...

Perhaps the story has a Thunderball arc, where instead of being out of shape and put in Shrublands, he's denounced by M for his scruffy appearance and sent to Skyfall, a male grooming salon in Mayfair.

Re: Photos of Bond from the set...

maybe gok wan is playing skyfall and i do like sir miles use of the word bobbins...very lancastrian...even if i do diasagree with his view on craig

Re: Photos of Bond from the set...

Well... I'm bowing out of the Skyfall forum for the forseeable.

I've been delving around on the mi6-hq website and read some explanations of what the above scene might be about, think it's time I cut down on spoilers or I'll be piecing the film together in my own mind.

Plus, there's that thing where if I can't say anything nice....   ajb007/biggrin

Re: Photos of Bond from the set...

I love the idea of Gok Wan sorting out Bonds wardrobe and SKYFALL being a grooming salon in mayfair.  ajb007/lol   ajb007/lol   ajb007/lol

I'm looking forward to Skyfall, But Hate the direction of Making Bond more and more human.We have a very scruffy Bond, ( If the images shown are to be in the movie and not simply just a run through) Instead of the Cleancut Image of old. Will we also have some mention of Bad breath, ot foot oder. To make him even more human. At some point Bond has to be Someone you want to BE rather than someone you feel sorry for and would buy a Big Issue off.   ajb007/tongue
   Then as some have mentioned mabey Bond has been called off another mission, where he was staking out some farmhouse or other for weeks, living off the land etc. My hopes are High Though as from the press conference all the talk of the last Bond film Mentioned CR not QOS. And the old team was said to be back. Leaving me to think the'y dropped the "Bourne ripp off"  and are getting back to something along the lines ( and hopefully quality) Of Casino Royale.
   Like many fans I'll give them The benefit of the doubt and asume they were hoodwinked by the spiel from the Bourne crew.   ajb007/biggrin and accept the excuse of the writers strike as to why QOS didn't hit the mark with many fans ( sir Miles,excluded   ajb007/tongue )
