Nice. Was thinking of starting something similar myself. Will you be okay to update the first post in the thread as we learn more scene numbers?

Seems worth noting that the Trinity Square scenes are intended as Whitehall.

My very rough guess on locations:
Turkey - London - Shanghai - London - Scotland - London

A lot of empty real estate left. Really curious about what we'll get for clapperboards in Turkey. I wonder if it'll be utilized in the film twice?

I don't think the London rooftop is the final scene.......there must be more than that...

Pretty confident the rooftop scene is the final scene.

In my script for CR, scene 172 is Bond snapping back to attention when Mathis asks him "Any ideas?" at Lake Como. That is roughly the two hour mark. I say the film ends on the roof.

I don't think, they go for weeks to Turkey, just for the PTS.

We still have all of March, April, AND May before principle photography concludes. I say Turkey may very well be used twice. A train wouldn't travel from China to Turkey, would it?

Thought I read somewhere around 3-4 weeks, but I could be absolutely mistaken.

The information I had suggested a 6 week shoot in southern Turkey, followed by 4 weeks in Istanbul.

Well, let's just say the Istanbul is the PTS, and a good 15 minutes long. 4 weeks would probably be just about enough time to film an elaborate action set piece.




Pretty confident the rooftop scene is the final scene.

In my script for CR, scene 172 is Bond snapping back to attention when Mathis asks him "Any ideas?" at Lake Como. That is roughly the two hour mark. I say the film ends on the roof.


My copy says that Scene 172 is Bond waking up in the Hospital bed, so that seems an ideal length for a movie. Saying that though, I'm hoping the rooftop scene is Bond just before the climax of the movie. I'm hoping he'll get the box off Eve, and not show us what's in it, go off and find Bardem and in the last moment, where you think Bond has no hope left, he'll pull out the box (Which we would've probably forgotten about), and reveal it's contents.

Thanks, chaps.

So, about ten weeks in Turkey in total. That could add up to a lot of screen time. Maybe a third of the film.

Right, I remember that, it just seems like a long time to shoot in one city.

That four week period could end up including preparation time. If we assume it's a 10-15 minute sequence, including a stunt or two, it might not actually be too unlikely.

Right, but then there's the 5 other weeks in Southern Turkey. Also, most likely, a stunt sequence (this one involving the train). Scene 39 is shortly after the parkour chase in Royale, so we'll likely get the PTS action, followed by the first big setpiece.

I'm starting to dislike this clapper stuff. Starting too give too much of an idea the plot.

I have to say I've not been following the run of scenes for this reason Skudor, just sticking to the location shots. I really applaud those who have peiced together some idea of the running order.

How is the perception that the pre-title will be 10-15 minutes? That's not been done since 'TWINE' has it, something so long?

Thank you Mharkin for starting this thread. Brilliant idea. I'm all for spoilers. Can't wait 'til I get a plot synopsis. This will do in the mean time.

I suppose this would come under structure...how long are people estimating Skyfall will be? Obviously longer than QOS but are we expecting a 2.5 hour epic based on what we know so far? Or more in-line with CR?

2 hours and 15 minutes would be an ideal running time for me.. not too long, but not too short either.

Bang in-between CR and QOS then. I'd agree with this.

I found QOS too short and CR had pacing issues after the death of Le Chiffre.
