Broadsheet Trailer Park: Spectre

at

spectre

What you may need to know:

1. After failing to save Dame Judi of Dench at the end of Skyfall (2012) and blowing up his house in the process, James Bond (Daniel Craig) finds himself in need of a new gaff and a new ‘M’.

2. Like Casino Royale (2006) and Quantum of Solace (2008), the storyline of Spectre will carry through to Bond number 25. Craig is signed up for at least one more Bond movie, but beyond that all bets are off.

3. @1:08 “Excuse me… I’m a WHAT? Oh, a kite. I’m sorry, I thought you called me a… never mind.”

4.
Before Sam Mendes agreed to return, the producers’ wish list of potential directors included Ang Lee, Danny Boyle and Christopher Nolan (which kind of makes sense if you think about it).

5. The impossible-to-dislike Paloma Faith messed up her chances of “pulling an Adele” by telling everyone that she really wanted to do the theme. They should get Mark E Smith in. Or Duncan from Blue.

6. Broadsheet Prognosis: No laser watches or invisible cars. Thankfully.

Release Date:  October 23

      Having known the author of this piece (M Ryall) years ago Mark E Smith is one of the first things his mind runs to when he wakes up…

        Paddy Power take bets on it, it’s mildly interesting just to look at the odds they’re giving.

        Idris Elba is favourite 7/4

        Daniel Radcliffe is a wild 100/1

        while poor P. Diddy is out at 250/1.

        They also have “James Bond” to play James Bond at 16/1, I’m not so sure how that works though….

      Isn’t he a bit too long in the tooth though? He’s 42, so signing him up for a multi-picture deal… The producers wouldn’t want another Roger Moore mummifying in the role.
