NTTD segment scheduled for Entertainment Tonight?

No Time to Die teaser poster

UPDATE (Oct. 22): Entertainment Tonight talked to Naomie Harris who was promoting another movie. She said women characters drive the plot in No Time to Die more than they ever have in a Bond movie. That’s it.

Thanks to Jack Lugo and reader @RNKFanArt on Twitter. I was recording an episode of the Spybrary podcast about U.N.C.L.E. and couldn’t check it out.

ORIGINAL POST (Oct. 21): Late Monday night, there were advisories concerning the Oct. 22 telecast of Entertainment Tonight. One of the featuers was listed as “the next James Bond movie.”

The James Bond MI6 website tweeted out an image of the advisory.

There’s not much to go on. Could it be a first look at the teaser trailer? Could it be a short segment about the 25th James Bond film made by Eon Productions?

There is no way to know. Entertainment Tonight is an established television show (e.g. it’s not a British tabloid). Presumably, it wouldn’t include a reference to No Time to Die as a gag.

Whatever. An Entertainment Tonight segment wouldn’t be revealing. But it may have more than fans know now.

Here’s a look at the MI6 James Bond tweet.

Entertainment Tonight looks at U.N.C.L.E. movie

Here’s a low-resolution version (via Henry Cavill Online) of Entertainment Tonight’s June 10 story about The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie. A few tidbits of note:

–Hugh Grant as Waverly tells Henry Cavill’s Napoleon Solo his new code name is “U.N.C.L.E.” (or just “uncle”).

— A general observation: even though the movie is set in 1963, it appears the film makers used clothing styles from various points of the 1960s.

— There are some scenes that were in the trailer shown in some U.S. theaters during the May 29-31 weekend, in particular Armie Hammer’s Illya Kuryakin ripping off a trunk lid.

— Kuryakin calls Solo “cowboy,” not in a flattering way. Again, something that was in the May 29-31 trailer.

If you haven’t seen it, take a look. The story runs for about two minutes.

Telegraph describes a Skyfall scene being filmed (SPOILER)

No spoiler in the post itself but we link to one.

From the Telegraph: "'There is a swimming pool scene ...any opportunity to get him to take his clothes off,' producer Barbara Broccoli says."

The Telegraph newspaper in Australia has an APRIL 15 STORY that, besides featuring interviews with Skyfall cast members, opens with a five-paragraph anecdote describing a key scene being filmed.

It includes a quick exchange of lines between Daniel Craig’s James Bond and Javier Bardem’s villain Silva. Click on the above link if you want to read it. It’s related to the video that was shown in the recent ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT STORY story about the film.

There’s also this tidbit from the story about the Sam Mendes-directed movie:

Taking a more serious tone, Craig says though there would be plenty of action in the film, it would also take its audience on an emotional journey. So what could the cast and crew reveal? Well, it is in fact Bond who strips, again. “There is a swimming pool scene …any opportunity to get him to take his clothes off,” producer Barbara Broccoli says.

Also, here’s a tip of the cap to the BOND AND BEYOND MESSAGE BOARD where we first saw this.

UPDATE: On April 13, MTV had ANOTHER STORY ON ITS WEB SITE that based on its recent interview with Craig. Here’s an excerpt that basically confirms Judi Dench’s M will have more 007 screen time than previously:

Going off on an adventure together.

Craig said Bond’s relationship with M is “a very important part of the film.” “There’s also the very important relationship he has with the bad guy in the movie [Silva, played by Javier Bardem]. We got Javier to come and do that, which gives the film a richer content, but his relationship with M, they are very close and they basically go on an adventure together, she gets out in the field. Judi, she’ll tell you she usually films most of her stuff in the studio like this while we are all off in some wonderful location and she gets to come with us this time.” (emphasis added)
