The videoblog is scheduled to be posted at 7:00 a.m. GMT, or 2 a.m. ET in the U.S. The Facebook posting has a quote from Mendes:

“The roots of my doing this Bond movie start way before anybody approached me because, like everyone else, I have my own personal relationship with Bond which began when I was I suppose about nine or ten years old. I’ve always been a fan of the movies.”

UPDATE: Another Mendes quote from the Facebook page:

“I think it is still possible to make a big, entertaining, fabulous, glamorous movie and yet at the same time to say something about the world that we’re living in.”

  1. Strikingly similar to what Jeffery Deaver has said about his experience with James Bond.

    Of course, we heard this in November, didn’t we?

    More pointedly, why is this the signature quote more than halfway into filming? If his resume hadn’t been vetted before, it sure won’t make a bit of difference now. Curious.
