Why is Daniel Craig done with Bond and stepping down? Well, he just simply had enough really. Doing a little reading and research on this on why he is stepping down and retiring the Bond character, well, he was gonna quit after “Spectre” but Sony talked him out of it and made him do one more so they can close out his series. News reports were speculating that he hated playing Bond but it turned out that he never hated playing the character, he was just getting too burned out and tired of it, ya know?
Think about it, the first Bond film that he starred in “Casino Royale” came out in 2006. It is now 2021 and he made 5 Bond movies so far. That’s about 15 years he’s been making Bond flicks so I would think that was how it would be a bit overwhelming for him. So it sounds like that’s what it is, he got too overwhelmed of the workload so he wants to get away from it and relax. Some speculated injuries is a reason… maybe that’s a small part of it but doubtful. He just got too burned out, period.
I also read somewhere that another reason he wants to move on that he wants to give someone else a chance. Passing the torch wasn’t Sony’s decision… it was Daniel himself that wanted Sony to give someone else a chance to play the iconic hero. He just felt his time was up.
Daniel probably just wants to move on to other film projects, ya know? He is a talented man and he’s done other good films too. He’s probably one of the best actors in Hollywood right now, I would say. I read somewhere that Daniel is slated to start filming “Knives Out 2” after Bond 25. I saw the first “Knives Out” movie and it was good, I liked it although the ending was predictable and I knew who the killer was all along, haha.
Anyhow, I was glad to get to see all 5 Daniel Craig Bond movies and once again, “Quantum of Solace” was the only bad one he did but I liked the other 4.
It’s gonna be interesting to see who Sony is gonna pick next and I already have a feeling on who it is ’cause the Bond replacement was already introduced in “No Time To Die”. Sony is gonna get that person. I don’t wanna say who it is as of this time ’cause it’s pretty huge. I’ll wait until Sony makes it official with the press.
So yesterday I went to see the new 007 Bond flick “No Time To Die”, yes, it is finally here. So far, the movie is getting mixed reviews, like a “love” or “hate” thing but what’s new with the Daniel Craig Bond films? They all got mixed reviews so far except for “Quantum of Solace” which that was the only Craig Bond film that got trashed on the most but I agree though, “Quantum of Solace” was probably the worst and I didn’t like it myself but anyway…
… I freakin’ loved it… I loved every second of “No Time To Die” so it was definitely the best of the Daniel Craig 007 series for sure. They ended his series beautifully and perfectly. I think the director, Cary Fukunaga did a brilliant job.
I don’t want to give any of the story and plots away ’cause there are some huge surprises and shockers in the film… but I gotta say that I think Sony already picked their Bond replacement ’cause this movie was kind of a “passing of the torch” kind of movie, ya know? It seems the new Bond was already chosen in the film itself. I won’t say who the new 007 is, won’t say whether it’s male or female, you have to go see the film yourself and then you’ll see. Sony didn’t sign this possible replacement yet but I’m sure they will and they will make announcement real soon despite all of these different names spinning around on who the next Bond will be but it seems the next Bond was already named in the film itself like I said.
The film had great direction, great writing and good acting by everyone in the cast. The film was of course, very action packed and man… the action scenes were very different than other Bond films in the past. There were a few scenes that will make you want to say “holy shit” out loud. That’s how an action movie should be… thrilling, exciting and unpredictable.
Daniel Craig still got it, though and I understand that he finally had enough and wants to move on to other things. It’s time to pass the torch to someone else. I’ve seen all the Daniel Craig Bond movies when they came out in theater: “Casino Royale”, “Quantum of Solace”, “Skyfall”, “Spectre” and now “No Time To Die”. Only one I hated was “Quantum” but the other 4 were real good, though.
Check out this cool little teaser revealing the title for Bond 25. It’s officially titled, “No Time To Die”. The title is giving you a hint that this will be the final Daniel Craig 007 film. Is the title hinting us that this film could be killing him off in this one? Could be, we’ll wait and see.
Anyway, I wonder who they’ll get to sing the title theme song for this one? I hope they pick a better theme song for this film ’cause I hated the Sam Smith theme for “Spectre”. While “Spectre” was an amazing film, I hated the opening title theme. Hopefully the opening title sequence for “No Time To Die” will be better.
I’m the biggest 007 fan you’ll ever see… I’ve seen all 24 films and I’ll be seeing this one too. Someday I’m gonna buy the 007 BluRay boxset with the 24 films in them, I really want that.
I’ve seen all the Daniel Craig 007 movies in theater when they first came out so you can betcha I’ll be seeing this one too.
For a while now, there has been a lot of talk that Daniel Craig was gonna quit the 007 franchise and move on. Turns out, looks like he changed his mind and felt that he has one more Bond movie left in him. Maybe he felt that he didn’t want to retire with “Spectre” and wanted an even better movie to go out on, ya know?
I’m a fucking huge James Bond fan. I’ve seen ALL 24 Bond movies far. I do love all the Daniel Craig movies but so far, I think “Spectre” is the best. I like all the Bond actors but Roger Moore and Daniel Craig are my favorite.
I’m glad Daniel is not quite done yet. Is Bond 25 gonna be Daniel’s last? Who knows, we’ll have to wait and hear from him. I’m sure he’ll respond soon in his next interview with the press.
Who’s gonna direct Bond 25? Rumor has it that they got their eye on Christopher Nolan but it’s just a rumor for now. I hope it’s true ’cause Chris Nolan makes good action movies after what he did to the Batman movies.
I love James Bond movies. I’ve seen a lot of them in theater over the years and will continue to watch ’em in theater. I’ve seen every Daniel Craig 007 movie in theater and will go see Bond 25. I hope they come up with a good plot for “Bond 25”.
I don’t want to spoil the ending for “Spectre” but there’s a possibility Christoph Waltz could come back as Blofeld. I can see it happening. Spectre Island could still be the plot for “Bond 25”, a continuation of “Spectre”. Would be kind of cool.
It seems that Ellie Goulding, a pop singer from the UK will be the artist for the opening theme song of James Bond’s next film, “Spectre”. She drops a big hint in the photo above leaving Abbey Road Studios. Remember now, Adelle recorded her “Skyfall” theme at the same studio.
Weird. I never really heard of Ellie Goulding until now.
When Sony announced that the title of the next Bond film is gonna be “Spectre”, I knew just by the title alone that this is gonna be the return of Spectre Island and the return of the main villain, Ernst Stavro Blofeld who is the leader of Spectre. Christoph Waltz will be playing Blofeld as you can see in the trailer. I was right all along!
The film looks great and already feeling goosebumps!
No big action scenes yet but definitely the next trailer. This one is just a teaser! The story does look like it’s a continuation from “Skyfall”. I don’t think “Spectre” will top “Skyfall” but we’ll wait and see.
So Spectre Island is making a comeback for the upcoming 007 film? Looks like it! It’s also looking like that this maybe the last 007 film that Daniel Craig is gonna star in. At least, that’s what it’s looking like. They are already hinting that they are gonna try for a black Bond for the next film after “Spectre” so it’s looking like that Daniel Craig wants to move on. Idris Elba might be the next 007 although none of this have been confirmed yet.
I am looking forward to “Spectre” as I am a really huge 007 fan. I don’t think this movie will top “Skyfall” but I’m sure “Spectre” will be great. Can’t wait! \m/
In the open title sequence for each Bond film, everybody should know that MGM writes an original song w/ lyrics that has something to do with the title and then they would hire a famous singer to sing the song. Over the years, have been mostly female singers that sung the 007 theme song but sometimes they would get male singers. I remember Chris Cornell of Soundgarden sung the theme song for “Casino Royale”. Madonna already did a theme song, she did the theme for “The World Is Not Enough” and she even had a role in the film too.
It’s been announced by Sam Mendes and MGM that a singer for “Spectre” have already been chosen but nobody’s talking on who it is yet.
When the title for the new 007 flick was revealed as “Spectre” not too long ago, you probably wonder what the plot/synopsis of the movie is gonna be about”? Well, when you look at the word, “Spectre” the title, you’ll immediately start to know what it’s about just by the title alone. In the James Bond franchise, SPECTRE stands for (Special Executive for Counter-Intelligence, Terrorist, Revenge and Extortion) which means they are a global terrorist organization and that also means that they are probably bad guys. SPECTRE appeared in the very first Bond film, “Dr. No” and they are about to make a huge comeback in the film, “Spectre” with Daniel Craig.
I just finished watching, “From Russia with Love” the second Bond film and there was a little bit of SPECTRE in that film as well. “From Russia With Love” is a great film by the way, too.
Spectre even have their own fictional island as well so the new Bond movie with Daniel Craig will probably be taken place on Spectre Island. Christoph Waltz is probably gonna play the leader of SPECTRE, Blofeld which is gonna be cool.
If you’re a long time Bond fan you would probably already know what SPECTRE already is. So it’s probably gonna be Bond vs. Spectre in the next film.
So far, I thought “Skyfall” was the best 007 film with Daniel Craig. Hopefully they do a good job with the next film. They just started filming “Spectre” today at Pinewood Studios. I hope they make it dark and violent like “Skyfall” was. Looking forward to the next Bond film.
I’m gonna try to watch all the old movies with Sean Connery and Roger Moore. I’ve seen all the newer ones with Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig. I didn’t like the Pierce Brosnan movies that much… he was terrible Bond, in my opinion.
