Wot, you've forgotten Barry Nelson already?


This may come as a surprise but I never actually came around to watching it.

If you're curious, the whole thing is on YouTube. Or it used to be. Barry Nelson is about as wrong for the role as any human male could be. He comes across like a Minnesota boy scout leader.

Then,

"Would you kindly, in your royal parlance, extract your finger and give some evidence that you are who you claim to be?"

In other words, dig out your guilty-pleasure DVD of CR '67 and watch the special bonus feature. Or, if you've managed to resist completing your collection, go to Youtube, where you can also catch the much-touted missing ending.

That's an order! (You might not like it, but ultimately you won't regret it).

EDIT: Sorry, but Puss got his post in while I was writing mine.

I got a copy of it on VHS years ago (ie: when i was 10)- it had a special feature from around the time of Diamonds are Forever im guessing- showing the filming of the elevator fight and an interview with Sean - but I haven't watched it since then- i'll have to dig it out

What if Bond was wearing a Tux instead of the suit?

Much better.
This is the days when fans have to manipulate official posters in Photoshop in order to get a tux on Bond!

Jane Bond back in action!

I do love reading how still divided we can be about if we like it or not, very interesting points.

I'm glad it's got Craig in the poster, the symbolic ones ('DAD', 'QOS') are more underwhelming to me. This is just a nice shout out that Bond is 'Coming Soon', and I expect the theatrical poster to really step up the level.

Mendes is holding his cards close to his chest with this one, and this teaser shows it...but teases us as we know something big is coming, so it works for me!

This time he's undercover and wearing cover up, the tux one looks great too Marketto.
How about one like Double Team or Twin Dragon but with Bond's long lost sister? or a poster like the film Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot! but with with Bond and M?
I wonder if it would have looked better if Bond was just standing there, instead of walking toward us.
I'm guessing the real poster will be Bond and Berenice right? As normal? I would buy that poster.

If Berenice is on the poster, or even gets a character poster like we had for 'CR' and 'QOS', that'll be a keeper!

The CR teaser trailer ended with a shot especially made for the trailer, Craig/Bond at the casino table – a sort of film version of the teaser poster. The QoS teaser trailer also ended with a shot especially made for the trailer; Craig/Bond walking through the desert with that big gun in hand – again, a sort of film version of the teaser poster.

Will the Skyfall teaser trailer end with a specially made shot of Bond walking toward camera in a tub tunnel with the gun barrel projected/superimposed onto the walls?
I'd very much like it if it did, particularly if it were projected.

When you look at Marketto's shots of the posters, this teaser makes more sense!

'CR' was perfect for the 'new Bond' image - Casino, Walther and Tux.

'QOS' was different too...not sure why, but just iconic Craig, with the pose.

'SF' strips away the need for us to see 'Bond Bond Bond!' iconography and limit the 'frills' to just our established version of Craig as Bond, still with the classic Walther and now the inclusion of the even more classic gunbarrel to just point out that Bond is back, and we're not afraid to show it!


I also like the theory Craig may reenact this poster shot for the end of the teaser, like 'QOS', the gunbarrel morphing in behind him, titles fade up on the screen below him. Could be very classy, and would make the poster seem more suited linked to the trailer.

Guess we'll have to wait and see!

The more I look at it the less I like it.

Still, there'll be another one along sooner or later.


Do keep in mind what teasers have looked liked in the past. Gold hued Bond. Flaming female silhouette. Gun on an ice block. Will take this one over those.

I beg to differ. I actually liked the flaming female sihouette and the smoking-gun-on-ice very much. These didn't showcase Bond-the-character as such, but conveyed the impressions surrounding a Bond movie (guns, silhouettes, etc.). Hence, these were much more effective as far as "teasing" is concerned: you got a vague idea, an overall mood, but did not get to see the actual guy himself.

Exactly why I prefer the teaser poster for Die Another Day over the final theatrical poster that was released.The smoking gun on the slowly melting block of ice was just awesome, truly seemed like Bond.

Yes, it was very clever.
Truth be told, lately I found the teaser posters to be highly superior to the theatrical posters. I remember a discussion some time ago here with Zorin where we said we'd like the Bond team to go back to bigger-than-life posters (e.g LALD, Octopussy, etc.) instead of just a cheap shot of the main characters (like we got with QoS).
Oh well!

I agree, the theatrical poster for QOS I thought was very weak. The two teaser posters of Bond holding the sub-machine gun in the desert I thought was brilliant. The classic posters were so over the top it was great! It's another aspect that makes Bond films so special. It is the 50th anniversary, so maybe the marketing team have something up their sleeve. I would like a true classic Bond poster rather than Bond and the characters and just a giant action collage slapped with it. I wouldn't mind something like this for the final poster.

If I'm not mistaken that was one of the final drawn posters for a Bond film, afterwards it was to using image stills and action collages etc.

I agree wholeheartedly!
I think it was GE that launched the era of weak posters (although, once again, the teaser - There Is No Substitute - was great) consisting of photoshoped stills from the movie.
To me, the last great poster was OP: http://imgc.allposte...s/octopussy.jpg
I think it's about time they came up with "Bondian" posters that set the trend and that everyone looks up to.

I think it was also Licence To Kill that did it too. http://serendipity38...kill-poster.jpg

That too was a great poster as well. Like I said though, It's the 50th anniversary and they got something up their sleeve. They give us a classic looking Bond poster, their going to do special things for marketing Skyfall.

That dubious ‘honour’ has to go to LTK, which produced this monstrosity as its main poster.

I really hope they don't waste valuable screen time in the trailer for a reenactment of this poster. For me, this is one of the weakest Bond posters in quite a while. I never thought I'd find myself defending Die Another Day in relation to any of the Craig films, but I'll take the teaser poster for that film over this any day. I'll even take the flaming silhouette from the TWINE teaser as well. At least those two images manage to grab one's attention. If I were to walk into the lobby of the local cinema, and this SkyFall poster was hanging on the wall, I doubt I'd notice it.

I wonder why they put Coming Soon, when we know it's coming out on 26th October?

That is because this is the International 1 Sheet whereby the dates across the world won't necessarily be October. There will probably also be a version of this poster that Does offer the October date. I refer you to the CR teaser where the above was exemplified.

The extreme example of this is the teaser for Moonraker (Bond standing on space station and surrounded by girls) where there were fully four versions of the same design to cover a multitude of sins.
