The original Barry theme song for YOLT that they later discarded set against the backdrop of the film's opening credits.



Not a bad song but I'm glad they used the one that made it into the final film.


I have to disagree. This is god-awful. It's amazing that this was somehow reworked into the finest Bond theme ever.

Considering that the Shatterhand rumor is being presented alongside the old Croatia rumors, I'm not placing much stock in it. At least there's nothing about Gulshan Grover.

Indeed, my biggest problem with the Craig era is the "remote-control Bond" phenomenon. He's in constant electronic contact with mission control, either actively collaborating with them or taking steps to elude their control. It's become far too big a part of the films.


I trace this back to the casting of Judi Dench. The producers keenly felt that they had a "great" on their hands, and needed to give her more and more to do. Fiennes is the same. I'd really like to see MI6 reduced back to its 60's/70's/80's level of prominence in the films, with Bond completely untethered and on his own, except perhaps for the occasional meet-up with a friendly agent. I don't want every film to have a London B-plot that we're constantly cutting back to.

What is the cause of this renewed Nolan speculation?

Huppert would be great, and I wouldn't be surprised if she's been on Eon's radar for a while.
