Jesus, this is the most expensive Bond movie ever. Spectre's budget was supposedly super inflated due to the chaotic production, but this is is 5 million more at a total 250 million.

Wonder if the shooting delays due to Craig's injury are partly why.

part of me imagines Billie Eilish asking for like 30 million of that

How much was Skyfall's budget? I can't get anything clearer than between $150 million and $200 million...

These films are just massive and they start shooting a year before release, shoot some six months and then have to get it done a month before release so it can ship lol

I mean everything is just huge on every department but to also get such a massive film on it's own in the can and ready to go is just insane, of course they're incredibly expensive. And yes, Craig's injuries must be expensive too

Grain of salt and all but Universal Russia is telling cinemas the TBC runtime is 174 minutes.

3 hour movies crammed to the brim like they got to fit an entire TV season's worth of stuff into one movie is one of the bad franchise trends so I hope that doesn't happen. But even when they edit it down to something shorter that's also where the seams can show.

Moving on to that Variety interview:
Variety: Neither Broccoli nor Wilson will reveal much beyond that, but they do promise that the film will tie up loose narrative threads left over from previous Craig outings. “We have come to an emotionally satisfying conclusion,” says Broccoli.
Well the past two movies really got into Craig's Bond's backstory a lot so I don't know how much that itch needs to be scratched anymore as it has been pretty exhausted even though he's the lead going into the fifth movie, but as Bond says in the trailer to Madeleine Swann, "We all have our secrets. We just didn't get to yours yet." I like those lines, rings true in-universe in terms of what the series has been doing.
Variety: Those ties will be strained at the beginning of “No Time to Die,” when Swann’s past returns to haunt the couple in unexpected ways.
Variety: “He’s brought a fresh new approach,” says Broccoli. “He’s made an emotionally engaging film. It’s epic both in the emotional scale and on the landscape scale.”

Cool addition

I'm so excited about this film

I hope they all hit it out of the park

Any idea when we'll find out how much IMAX they used in the film?

For Bond it's traditionally week before the UK drop, so last week of March.
