    Ralph will likely be the head of Quantum, and it's evil mastermind behind the scenes, and i could see Javier being his henchman. Daniel will probably kill Javier first, and then finally he will come head to head with Ralph.

    I know. It's seriously alarming. Mendes is a fantastic actor director, he gets top-notch performances ALWAYS. ALWAYS. Never a missed beat with that guy.

    The only film from Sam Mendes I haven't enjoyed was, and still is, The Kite Runner, so fingers crossed he does well with Bond.

    Quantum Solace was a pile of turd though, so I hope this will be better.
  • BaneBane Posts: 9,869 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Quantum was really good, just not as good as Casino. And ESPECIALLY compared to some of the older ones.

    It will eventually, if not with this one. But, on a side note, Craig has said that this will very likely be better than Casino Royale. Obviously, he said this after first reading the script.

    Potter has 2.6 billion more, and the biggest Bond has 594 million. Let's say the next couple make 600 million on average, it'll need 5 movies to pass it.

    How long does it take to make 5 James Bond movies? A fucking long time.

    Ah, that's right: Mendes was the executive producer, not the director. I'll amend my original statement.

    Anyway, a journalist managed to have a quick word with Ralph Fiennes after the formal announcement today, who slyly offered only one detail about his character: he doesn't get laid. Now, the one conclusion some of you appear to have arrived at is that Ralph will portray a senior member of Quantum, but the secrecy surrounding his role, so much so that Mendes himself has sworn to be tight-lipped, seems to be inconsistent with that. Would Ralph portraying an elite member of an organization that's primarily drawn from the preceding two films elicit much surprise?

    No, what seems more likely (and a possible combination of two very plausible theories when examined as one) is that Ralph will be portraying a modern reboot of Ernst Blofeld, widely considered to be the main antagonist of James Bond in Ian Fleming's body of work. They could even be intending to combine elements of SPECTRE, Blofeld's organization for global terrorism in the books, with Quantum.

    Come on, look at the typical representation of Blofeld from the past Bond films and tell me it doesn't make sense:

    Yeah I can't even believe that's the first official image they've decided to release. Maybe if I were a 14 year old girl or something but good god, there are better ways to get me excited. Maybe like some machine guns and a helicopter exploding or something.

    From the looks of the picture, it will definitely be better than Quantum.

    It will be better than Quantum, which was middle of the road Bond, but it doesn't suck.
