Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

Are we sure that Norway filming is actually for Bond and not a Phantom of the Opera sequel?  ajb007/lol

Seriously though, wow...that is some big news! Assuming that the girl is probably a young Madeleine and the masked men are the cabin attackers? That’s if those scenes are actually a flashback without Bond.

Thought the young girl in the pic was actually Sophie Turner at first...assumed we had some really surprising casting news on our hands.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

From the Express article:

“Accompanying video - which can be seen above - shows a young girl running away from a house while the unnerving masked man limps behind her.

At one point she stands on what seems to resemble a sheet of ice, before falling down - perhaps the point at which VFX could be used to have her disappear underwater.

The presumed villain is then seen shooting at the floor and bending down - indicating he could try saving her, despite earlier giving chase.”

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

That Daily Express newspaper story has a picture of the masked guy without his mask.
https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment … 07-villain

Is it this guy, Sebastien Soudai?

I would imagine someone will identify the girl at some stage. She doesn't look like the girl identified before, the Iranian girl. There's no girl on the Bond25 IMDb page.

My guess is, he is one of the two intruders, and the limp and, I think, smashed mask, mean there's action inside the cabin, which presumably, will be filmed at Pinewood, and the other intruder will be killed by young Madeleine with the gun kept with the bleach under the sink, as revealed in Spectre.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

That was a very interesting video. It seems likely the girl killed one attacker and shot the masked man in the foot inside the cabin. White clothes and a white mask is obvious winter camoulflage, but I wonder if the mask was broken in that fight or he really is a huge Phantom of the Opera fan?  ajb007/biggrin
The girl could be the young Madeline, but I'm not convinced. When she crouches at the end, is it a way for her to disapear from the camera frame, making it possible to cut to a scene shot at Lutvann or in a Pinewood studio tank where she falls through the ice? And when the masked man shoots at the ice around him, Skyfall style, is it a way to quickly make a hole in the ice so he can get hold of the girl? Does he need her dead body as proof of her death or is he trying to save her, suggesting it's a kidnapping attempt?

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

Great stuff. The mask, etc really looks scary and creepy in a Halloween way. Looking at the pictures close up, it does appear the mask is broken.

182

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

The mask reminds me of the face protection mask Taiwanese special forces uses. I imagine the mask protects the face and head from shots of some calibres, but the mask will take a beating or break. The girl shot him in the leg and the face, but the mask saved him. Or , more realisticly the mask protects from shrapnel and debris

A Japanese 'Noh' mask, made of wood.

Always have an escape plan. Mine is watching James Bond films.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

The eyes on the mask looked partly painted on like the Noh masks, but who am i to trust my eyes anymore  ajb007/lol

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

Odd, just went into that Express article again and noticed they've gotten rid of all the close-up pictures of the girl during filming. Might've had some complaints regarding posting pictures of a child actor or something?  ajb007/confused

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

According to a Norwegian member of MI6Community there was a report about the filming of Bond25 on the breakfast show yesterday of a TV channel i don't have access to. They spoke to a Bond fan in the area who had spoken to the girl actress (yes, I know) and the girl was Norwegian.

I know next to nothing about fashion and fashion for children in particular, but is the girl's jacket old-fashioned?

Don't have to worry about the cameraman slipping?

So they have 6 guys running on the ice, 2 of them backwards, instead of 1?

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

I think the camera is an IMAX camera, so it's espcially heavy. Not that I know that stuff. What I do know is that it's easier to run on ice if you have something to hold on to.

It was originally rumoured that Bond 25 would be shot entirely digital but utilizing the large format Arri 65 camera. However that does not appear to be the case anymore. According to Indie Wire:

“Bond 25,” which started shooting this week in Norway, will be the first James Bond film shot in large-format, with Oscar-winning cinematographer Linus Sandgren (“La La Land”) using both Panavision and IMAX 65mm cameras. A leaked image (via @ImAFilmEditor) and footage from a remote lake near Oslo confirmed the presence of an IMAX camera attached to a Voltstack electric generator.

IndieWire has learned that “Bond 25” (now with the working title “Eclipse”) will be shot primarily in Panavision but with action sequences reserved for the special IMAX treatment."
Looks like EON/MGM is letting Fukunaga run with this, and if anything, Bond 25 will be a visual feast. It wouldn't surprise me that parts of the film will still be shot digitally (Panavision also has a highly touted brand new large format digital camera). I also wonder if Bond 25 will use "shifting" aspect ratios in IMAX cinemas.  I also think they don't want to be outdone by the last two MI films which used IMAX cameras to great effect for the big action sequences and for that matter the last few big Marvel films.

Re: Bond 25 SPOILER news

Awesome! It's definitely going to be an absolute beauty visuals wise. Can't wait for the big screen! I'd say that IMAX info also deserves a posting on the regular B25 discussion thread—it's not really spoilery and it's a pretty big development.
