I also think Rise of Skywalker is going to significantly underperform. It certainly won't bomb, but I think it will do 'badly' (ie - struggle or even fail to crack a billion) enough that people will be taken aback somewhat.

I'd be inclined to feel the same.
Echoed by some real life chums, the interest seems to have significantly waned.
Even those I know who were drinking the (blue) Kool-aid for the past coupla years aren't really that enthused about Ep IX.

I shudder to think how much cash I haven't wasted on Star Wars tat in the past 18 months - and I'm just a regular schmoe, not an internet loolah*.

Very very pretty, but in a better world Herzog would be playing Harvey: "Have a bounty for you Alpha, this one will make you consider the essential emptiness implicit in our standards of genetic purity, a mirror that only shows the one reflection; 250K dead or alive".

Not sure if me showing the same imagination as Disney is a plus or minus...

You should sue them, you'd definitely win…
You may quote me on that.

Helmeted Bounty Hunter backlit by the sun?

Steve, just take pride that your unpaid design chops are more than equal to an entire legion of Disney's best troops.

More the "something I bashed out from a frame grab from the short because we were too busy to take stills" ;)

After King Arthur and Aladdin, Guy Ritchie's gone back to making films in the Guy Ritchie genre. In The Gentlemen, Hugh Grant plays Michael Caine and everyone else plays Guy Ritchie.

Like Ritchie's early films, it feels like a crossover episode between The Sweeney (i) and Only Fools & Horses - one character's even called Mickey Pearce(on)! Like all British directors, Ritchie's only killing time till he's asked to do a Bond film (ii)


Waiting to do their Bond film

Chris Nolan (refuse to believe he hasn't already been asked)

Matthew Vaughan

Danny Boyle (quit because they wouldn't let him kill Bond)

Steve McQueen (probably top of Babs' list)

Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Under The Skin)

Tom Hooper (The King's Speech, Les Miserables)

Joe Wright (Darkest Hour, Atonement)

Gareth Edwards (Rogue One, Godzilla)

Mike Yates (Potter, Fantastic Beasts)

Paul King (Paddington 1 & 2, The Mighty Boosh)

Ben Wheatley

Lynne Ramsay (probably next to McQueen on the list)

Paul Greengrass

Andrea Arnold

Michael Winterbottom

Amma Asante

Alex Garland (Ex Machina)

Gareth Evans (The Raid)

Shane Meadows

Edgar Wright

Jed Mercurio

Idris Elba

Nick Park



(i) but only the bits of each episode that follow the villains

(ii) That's what doing Aladdin was about - adding enough zeroes to his box office record to make him look like a safe bet for financiers on big franchises. The Man From UNCLE was a director (and leading man) screaming LOOK - I CAN DO BOND!

I'm glad Alan Moore & Kevin O'Neill got to do their 'Jimmys'. They should just cancel the franchise now – it's peaked (unofficially).

Danny Boyle (quit because they wouldn't let him kill Bond)

No matter what was made-up by the Sun, I doubt Danny Boyle would want to suffer the social media slings and arrows of going down in history as the man who killed a corporate icon, he's not Rian Johnson.

Rumours that the film's script was the source of the disagreement have been reported, with producers alleged to be unhappy with the decision to focus on contemporary political tensions with Russia and a "modern-day Cold War". 

However one industry source told the Telegraph the split was due to a fall out over whether to cast Tomasz Kot as the lead villain. The 41-year-old Polish actor stars in Cold War, a love story set in 1950s Europe, and was described as a "left-field" decision for a Bond enemy.

"Craig has a big say in all the casting decisions. None of the Bond girls have been chosen without his say so," the source said. "For example he chose Eva Green to be the Bond girl when it came to the final four for Casino Royale and that has been the case for all the Bond girls he has worked with."
