"Bond went blaxploitation in Live and Let Die"

Weeeeell.....except it was based on a book written in 1954, and "blaxploitation" is generally considered a 70s phenomenon I believe.

I don't even give a crap about the modern main Bond films, let alone a "universe". :roll:

Daniel Craig Is Reportedly Returning as James Bond

Daniel Craig is all set to reprise his role as the iconic James Bond in Bond 25 after reportedly reaching a deal with producer Barbara Broccoli. Rumors have been swirling about Craig's return for a fifth movie even after he stated that he'd "slash his wrists" than do another Bond movie after the release of 2015's Spectre. It has previously been reported that the James Bond franchise is close to closing a deal to shoot the next movie in Croatia, which would make the news of Craig's return make much more sense.

Bond 25's been announced but nothing about Daniel Craig...

The 25th official James Bond film will be released on 8 November 2019, producers have confirmed.

The currently-untitled movie will be written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who worked on the last six films.

But it has not yet been announced whether Daniel Craig will return to play Bond for the fifth time.

Two unlikely parties have thrown their hats into the ring for the distribution rights to the James Bond series: digital giants Apple and Amazon.

It's not gonna be a woman. They are just trying to hype it up.

Watched Casino Royale the other day. Superbly directed but it did bore me a little.

Just watched Licence to Kill for the first time since... erm, the '90s! It was still great but I wish I hadn't cos it didn't live up to the memory for me. Love the dark beginning, though, where stop just short of killing Felix Lighter. They should have gone the whole hog and finished him off. Still one of the better ones for me.

Why not just have some female agent(s) involved in the story? (I reckon rather "00" they should have numbers starting "99" in honour of Maxwell Smart).

Bond set fire to the bad guy with Felix's lighter if that counts?
