Synopsis of No Time To Die, from the announcement:

"In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

Directed by Cary Fukunaga—who replaced Danny Boyle on the project—and written by Fukunaga, Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Scott Burns, and Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge, No Time to Die also stars Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch (herself rumored as a potential replacement for Craig as 007), Billy Magnussen, and Ana de Armas, alongside returning names like Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, and more."

I'd love to watch a Kill Goldenpussy movie  :metal

It'd be like Home Alone.  But this time a rich socialite goes on holiday and leaves her special Golden Abyssinian (who has a diamond collar) home...alone.   Two burglars get wind of the collar but are repeated out witted by the cat, highlights include Joe Pesci getting his head stuck in the cat door, and Daniel Stern falling face first into a used litter tray.  Both end up getting neutered at the end of the film.

I assume that wasn't in the annoucement right?

sounds like they used a Bond Name randomizer ('Kill Goldenpussy').

Nice shots of Matera!

So who is the villain, the Phantom of the Opera or Mr. Robot?
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Very decent cinematography. Not sure what else to make of it just from the trailer yet.

Gonna be a long 4 month wait. The trailer looks incredible, especially the cinematography! It’s gonna be bittersweet sitting in the theater knowing that Craig’s era is coming to an end, but he’s had a great run!

So... um, yeah... the new theme song is out. It's.... a song, I guess.

Have the ever before released the theme before the film's debut?

Don't like Billie Eilish to begin with, so that aint helping either.

It was quite OK imo.

Definitely better than the theme for Spectre.

and better than bloody Adele and Madonna (who both make me throw up), but better than these three doesn't suffice. Never. (and yes, I'm jaded and proud of it) I guess the film and the actual soundtrack will make up for every misstep (concerning the main titile songs) in the Craig era. They all were. Great films though in his era, all of them. (his era and Roger Moore's were my favourites. The Spy Who Loved Me was my first one)

I think "Skyfall" is great.  Not only is a good song on it's own, but they deliberately took cues from the old Shirley Bassey theme songs in how it was written.

and Muse wrote Supremacy for Skyfall (but it was rejected), which would have fit much much better IMHO. (referencing Live And Let Die and Goldfinger and You Only Live Twice), besides Skyfall was as flat as can be (nothing grandiose about it. (remember Dan Craig being shot right before it, and then this bland piece of nonsense, I just didn't understand and still don't now. To each their own though.

I didn't know that, but it makes sense because I've always found it to sound very "Bondy". Those verses could have been taken from virtually any Bond theme.

I truly wish they would have did their original plan for SPECTRE and used the Radiohead song of the same name

I greatly prefer that to Writing on the wall

I’d take 50 Adele songs over one Radiohead or Muse song, so there’s that.  I thought Skyfall was a perfect Bond theme.

Same here.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Skyfall is my favorite Bond theme by a long shot to be honest. Something about that one is on another level. I also love Billie's Bond song. And A Moon Shaped Pool is probably the best thing Radiohead's ever done, it's awesome.
