No Time to Die podcast returns

The official No Time to Die podcast returned Wednesday evening U.S. time. The podcast began in September 2020 but went into hibernation after the movie’s release was pushed back into 2021.

The first two episodes are online. The first, Bond in Context leads off with a discussion about how the 25th James Bond film has been delayed three times because of COVID-19. Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson of Eon Productions are interviewed about that subject.

Also, “You can also be the first to hear exclusive score from Hans Zimmer released by Decca Records,” according to the episode’s description. The episode runs 44 minutes.

The second episode is titled A Name to Die for: Allies and Enemies of Bond.

“Led by interviews from Rami Malek, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw and Lashana Lynch, we’ll explore what makes a classic supporting character and look back at some of 007’s most iconic nemeses,” according to a description.

James King is the host.

UPDATE: In episode 1, Barbara Broccoli says No Time “is a cinematic masterpiece.” We’ve all heard hype for movies but those are strong words.

Bond in Motion Heads to Los Angeles

Bond in Motion, the display of James Bond film vehicles, is heading to Los Angeles for about a year.

The exhibit will be at the Petersen Automotive Museum from late this month through October 2022.

Here’s part of the description at the museum’s website.

Produced in collaboration with EON Productions and The Ian Fleming(TM) Foundation, Bond in Motion is the first official exhibition in the United States to feature original vehicles from one of the world’s most iconic film franchises, James Bond. This exhibit celebrates the 60th anniversary of the franchise since the release of Dr. No (1962).

The exhibition can be seen with purchase of a general admission ticket or museum membership.
