In Topic: MGM: 007 films to come out on a 3-4 year cycle

It is a bloody hopeless situation all round.

 

I don't even know why MGM has to have a distribution partner per se because I am sure Eon could fund the lot themselves, no?  Or maybe that has been tried because they too, like Sony, wouldn't get such a great deal.

 

Please excuse the random thought.

It's an idea, but perversely, while MGM own 50% of Bond, they won't die AS a result of a Bond film not being produced. 

 

If their dying was imminent and IF they ever sold their 50% stake, thereafter they could fall over.  But a sale would assure their further staggering for a period, I would submit.

 

Clearly the decent thing to do at this stage would be to sell their stake.  Equally clearly, that won't happen.

But as all billboards become screens, and as all still images become moving images, then, in time, I figure there will be nothing more than 'a logo against moving images on screens'.

 

Admittedly, I am not thinking next week, but maybe in 10 years' time.

 

The one slight anomaly to this is that, even though they still print god-awful US 1 sheet posters for SPECTRE et al, the number of dated variations, with and without the IMAX listing, is actually going UP.

 

Moonraker had five distinct poster designs for the US campaign - not counting the 1-Stops.  SPECTRE had three designs, but about four to six variations of each.  Same with Skyfall.  I still don't have my head around that thinking yet.
