If you just do a quick read at that and look at the Craig picture, you'd think the big guy standing next to him is the new villain, Rami Malek. It isn't, that's the director. Malek was in New York when they were doing the Jamaica promotion. Christoph Waltz doesn't seem to have been there either.

So I found it underwhelming. I didn't like Waltz as Blofeld. I like him in general, but not in that part. Rami Malek is a short guy. It says 5'9, I don't think so. The idea of him smacking down with Craig, even with the age gap, is very unBond like. I know Bruce Lee was a short guy, but he was the underdog good guy, so it worked.

So I've got villain problems already. I also think that the plot, such as revealed, is instantly recognizable. Retired agent, living the good life with his wife, until he comes back because . . . Yes, we've all seen that one, in Her Majesty's Secret Service, in The Bourne Supremacy and it spells an early exit for Seydoux if it holds true.

It's going to be a long time before we see this one. I hope it's better than the GMA show.

I noticed that Craig says in this interview that this is probably his last one. However, he hasn't said that with 100 % certainty.

Back in the early 1980s, Roger Moore said several times that he was done, but each time he kept coming back. He said he was done after "Moonraker", but then he did "For Your Eyes Only." Then he said he was done in 1982, but he was persuaded back for "Octopussy." Finally, he just did one more, "A View to a Kill", in 1985.

‘Bond 25’ Suspends Shooting After Daniel Craig Injury

The difficult road to production on the latest James Bond film has hit another hurdle after shooting was reportedly suspended following an injury to star Daniel Craig. According to British newspaper The Sun, the actor fell while sprinting on the set in Jamaica last week and has been flown to the U.S. for X-rays, resulting in a suspension of the shoot.

The newspaper cited an unnamed source as saying that Craig was shooting one of his final scenes in Jamaica. “He was sprinting during filming when he slipped and fell quite awkwardly,” the source said. “He was in quite a lot of pain and was complaining about his ankle.”

While it is unknown how long the production might be delayed, The Sun reports that filming at London’s iconic Pinewood Studios, which had been scheduled to begin at the end of the week, has been canceled.

It is not the first time that Craig, who performs many of his own stunts, has been injured on the set of a Bond film. He had two teeth knocked out during his first stunt scene for his Bond debut in “Casino Royale”; sustained a number of injuries, including slicing off the tip of a finger and tearing a shoulder muscle, on “Quantum of Solace”; and injured his knee during a fight scene for his most recent outing as the super spy in 2015’s “Spectre.”

A potential production delay would be the latest setback for “Bond 25” following a troubled script process that saw original director Danny Boyle leave the project over creative differences with producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, resulting in a delay to the start of production and a subsequent delay to the planned release, originally slated for October 2019. The release is currently scheduled for April 8, 2020.

Although sprinting doesn't sound much like a stunt, the novelty of actors doing their own dangerous stunts has long worn off. No one cares.

Have you seen Craig lately, he's an OLD 51. He shouldn't be sprinting. It's not like Bond stunts are believable anyway.

According to an interview with the actress who plays Moneypenny, she said that she thinks that Daniel Craig MAY actually do another Bond film after this one, Bond 26, that this may not be his last outing. She said we'll see how this one goes, first, but if fans really want him to stay, maybe that will persuade him to return.

The whole thing about Bond is that it is a young man's role in terms of stunts/running, but needs someone with huge life experience, or believable that they've been in the job a long time, so not a 20-something actor. That means that a Bond has to be 40s-ish and beyond.
Roger Moore was 57, iirc, in his last Bond, and he never exactly looked like a spring chicken, ever. Big Grin
Maybe the next Bond should be someone a little bit younger. Richard Madden would get my vote. Smile
