I thought you meant Eva Mendes was a Bond girl for a second, kind of disappointed now

Will be interesting to see if they can replicate the success of Skyfall.

In terms of box office, I don't think it can. Everything came together for Skyfall from the years worth of hype of the 50th anniversary to the Olympics tie in watched by a billion people around the globe.

Personally, i think it might, especially now that they've got Mendes back. I'd be surprised if Bond 24 didn't at least make it to $1 billion considering Skyfall made $1.1 billion and is a well regarded film by most.

I'm really glad that the producers have allowed Mendes and Logan to take their time with it too, i think a 3 year gap between Bond movies is perfect, i know they used to release them every other year but that would surely lead to franchise fatigue and then we'd definitely see box office takings drop, whereas a 3 year gap will allow more time for anticipation (a 4 year gap between Quantum of Solace and Skyfall obviously paid off), and the last thing we'd want is another rush job like Quantum of Solace.

2015 is shaping up to be an absolutely massive year for box office takings.

They've got a hard act to follow. I can't wait to see what they come up with.

Regrading the US released date of November 6th: Marvel's first Phase Three movie Ant-Man opens the same day as Bond 24, surely either one of those has to change their release schedule?

2015 is going to be a huge year for the box office.

Let's hope they ordered some excitement for the next one. Skyfall was as dull as ditchwater.

Can't say I'm happy at the prospect of Mendes coming back, or Logan's standard of writing being allowed anywhere near a Bond film again. I still hate Logan for what he did to Star Trek: Nemesis.

Skyfall was desperately boring, only slightly more watchable than Quantum of Solace.

Nemesis had numerous problems (tired ageing cast; rip-off dumb plot; unengaged if workmanlike director) of which Logan was a small part.

I'd happily watch Skyfall again (and it's not that great) rather than ever sit through QoS. Sony are playing safe re-engaging Mendes, but hey, I'm looking forward to seeing what he and Craig (who I think is proactive in this) cook up next.

I'd love them to go all out with a "Spy Who Loved Me" type Bond movie. Over the top baddie, world domination, outlandish hideout, big battle at the end kind of thing.

I would rather they went back to a more Moore style Bond, Skyfall I fell asleep in twice I know Moore era Bond was cheesy but it was entertaining!

I hope so. Don't know about anyone else, but I felt Mendes & Craig were re-inventing the classic Connery/Moore set-up (M, Q, Moneypenny) in Skyfall with a view to (hopefully) creating something that blends the classic Bond humour/chemistry with post-Bourne action. Though competently made, CR and QoS were a little...dull?

Craig is the only actor to have played Bond who can't deliver a comedic one liner. He doesn't have a funny bone in his body, if you'll excuse the pun. The numbers for Craig's Bond films say there's huge public appetite for dull as dishwater Bond films. I'd love a return to the type of less cheesier Bond films that Sir Roger made, namely TSWLM and FYEO, but it won't happen.

Less seems to be far more where Bond's concerned.

I was hoping the next film would be released next year. Still at least we know a new Bond film is confirmed. Three years ago there were doubts there would be another Bond film. The only thing now is Daniel Craig is now 45 so will be 47 when the next one is released and if there is another three year gap then he will be 50. I know Roger Moore was in his 50's when he did his last few films and Connery was 53 when he did Never Say never Again but most people agree they were both getting too old for the part. It looks unlikely that Daniel Craig will beat the record of 7 films in the role as he would have to carry on until he is 59! That's if the three year gap continues, His 8th film would be in 2027!

Thats what I'm thinking their plan is too, and Craig will react to the classic elements in his own way I'm sure.
IMO Casino Royale wasnt dull, it had a seriously tone, yet conversely I found it very funny due to Craig's deadpan humour

I must be one of the only a few who thought Skyfall was a bit disappointing. It was like an episode of 24 or Spooks in many places. I also felt it lack a really big budget feel.

They need to pull something out of the big to get me interested.

Although I will always like Bond. I do like Daniel Craig though.

You're not alone. I thought it played out as a rather dull game of hide and seek followed by a remake of Home Alone.

I did like they way the end set things up though. I thought Q was pretty well cast too.

Will they cast Ben Wishaw in the next film then? Even in the classic 'old' Bonds Q was always seemed older than Bond

Skyfall didn't holdup on a rewatch for me. Enjoyed it a lot at the cinema but was surprised how little I enjoyed it on Blueray. Casino Royale was far better in my opinion, I've seen it 5 times now and it still holds up. QOS was garbage though!

The problem with QoS was the villain, Dominic Greene. I felt he was too small! And had no presence. The whole grieving and revenge thing for Vesper just did not work. The Quantum organisation do not really come across as a threat either.

Now that star, script and director are sorted they can get on with more important matters.

Who does the song?

Whoever's flavour of the month.

I'd imagine at that point, Emelei Sande will still be whoring herself out to anything and everything.
