    The Hildebrand Rarity i actually like but to use as a song difficult,? As i wait with patience what are your picks for title?

  • jack galler

    If we get a SkyFall 2, can I punch someone in the face repeatedly?

    • You may indeed 🙂

    • James McDonald

      Better not be The Solace of Quantum.

  • James McDonald

    Good morning, Tom and Chris. Very exciting day today. I have hope for the title Property of A Lady, but I also like Ice Breaker and Snow Bound. Wonder if Blofeld or Austria or Rome will be in the title if they made up a new one.

    • Here we are making guesses left right and centre, and there at Eon HQ, they all know what it’s going to be called and they’re just waiting to tell us. Only a few hours left!

  • Simon Woolley

    76 minutes…and counting….

  • Jeff Silence

    Alright. Ready to do this. My work colleagues think I’m crazy to obsess over this, but who cares what they think?

  • Ben Cherry

    Morning all, I’m an avid JBR fan and so had to get involved this morning.
    I like “My Enemy’s Enemy” – Blofeld also wants to bring down Quantum in Bond 24 for Blofeld to return as main villain in Bond 25. Hows that for a slice of fried gold.

  • Well helloooooo everybody…what’s happening’ baby?!

  • Jeff Silence

    Just a note: it looks like the stream from Pinewood might be restricted to some places outside the UK, so you may need Hola Unblocker or something similar to view it.

  • I’ve got tea and biscuits (it’s early) roll on the press conference!

  • Enno Urbeinz

    Thank you so much for this, guys, as the Pinewood Livestream is not available in Germany … Grrrrrr …!

    • Jeff Silence

      If you have Chrome or Firefox, you can use Hola Unblocked to view it. In Germany as well and it looks like it’s working for me.

  • Chris Wright

    Good day Tom my man! Only 22 minutes to go!!! 🙂

  • Harris Thomas

    lets to this!!!

  • Harris Thomas

    6am here in the USA

    • Guest

      I admire your dedication, Harris!

  • Guest

    I’m so excited!

  • Chris Wright

    Beautiful man… just beautiful!!! 🙂

  • Jack Lugo

    hey guys

  • James Roberts

    WE ARE almost there

  • This is probably the second most exciting moment other than actually watching the movie itself for the first time.

    • Jack Lugo

      any last minute title guesses? Hildebrand Rarity anyone?

      • Jeff Silence

        I’m still holding out for Risico.

      • Risico would be my choice

  • Chris Wright

    Anyone else around to enjoy the build up????????

  • Bollocks to it, I switched me off, it was way too slow 🙂

    • Jack Lugo

      might you be able to audio only?

  • James McDonald

    I can here you

  • Jeff Silence

    Bandwidth issues on the live stream?

    • Seems okay for me so far. I turned my lifestream off cos the delay was crazy. Hopefully the pinewood stream runs smoothly

      • Jeff Silence

        OK. I can see you clearly now.

  • ARGH HOLY SHIT!

  • NOW THAT IS A VERY GOOD START TO PROCEEDINGS!

    • Jack Lugo

      awesome!!! One has to wonder if there’s something more to this selection.

  • Is anybody else’s heart beating like crazy?

  • Ben Cherry

    I can hear you dude. Bit flaky though.
    So excited for this!!!

  • Apparantly it’s going to start at 10:50 now not 11, that’s in like 2 minutes!!!

  • Jeff Silence

    AWWWW… They’re playing We Have All the Time in the World

  • I don’t know whether I’ve ever really made this clear to anybody before…but…I really fucking love James Bond.

  • Jack Lugo

    Bassey!

  • Here we go!!!!!

  • Jeff Silence

    Haha… one of my workmates is singing along to Diamonds are Forever

  • Good luck everybody! Considering we’re still talking about Bond films made more than 50 years ago, today’s reveal is a big big deal!

  • HERE WE GO!

  • What I’d give to be in that room right now

  • Chris Wright

    Loving this build up!!! 🙂

    • Chris Wright

      New Aston for Chris!

      • Jack Lugo

        Chris must be helping Babs get ready

  • Well, he’s got an Aston then, that’s for sure 😉

  • Harris Thomas

    10 people are confirmed to be on stage

  • Chris Wright

    Tom I think you’d do a better job as compare!!

    • Haha, thanks Bro! Ideally they’d need both of us.

      • Though we’d most likely just be dry humping each other throughout

        • Jeff Silence

          While Chris is proposing to Babs..

  • Chris Wright

    And the montage begins!

    • Jeff Silence

      It’s like that In Memoriam montage they show at the Oscars every year.

  • James McDonald

    The longest 10 minutes.

  • Simon Woolley

    YOU’RE THE BEST!

  • Good luck everybody. History in the making right now

  • Now that was a montage!

  • Chris Wright

    Everyone holding their breath….!!!

  • Jack Lugo

    Great montage!!! Going to need to see that again!

  • Simon Woolley

    The world’s best secret agent – of that there’s no Doubt, as Alan Partridge would sat.

  • Simon Woolley

    • Jeff Silence

      Probably Babs and MGW

    • I’m calling Michael G. Wilson & Barbara Broccoli

  • Ohhh man, I’m so so so so so excited!

  • Simon Woolley

    …and counting.

  • Jeff Silence

    50 seconds and countinnggggg

  • Chris Wright

  • Simon Woolley

  • Jeff Silence

    Why do they have the most subdued audience there? If we were there it would sound like a football match.

    • Chris Wright

      Too right!!

  • Denby, eh?

  • Chris Wright

    Denby eh? MI6

  • Simon Woolley

      Impatient for next November

      • Chris Wright

  • Chris Wright

    That cast is flipping AMAZING!!!!

  • I’m glad the Mark Strong thing didn’t happen

  • Simon Woolley

    And I’m in Mexico City next week!

  • Chris Wright

    Ooh Bond location shots!!

  • Jack Lugo

    WOW!!!

  • Chris Wright

    And as quickly as it started… it stops…

    • Simon Woolley

      Always leave ’em wanting more

      • Chris Wright

        Unless you were there then you could gatecrash the VIP area!

    • jamespember

      That was seriously quick. I demand a new podcast episode from you guys early!

      • Chris Wright

        HAHAHA… we will be recording one first thing tomorrow and will try and get it out ASAP!!

        • jamespember

          Beautiful. Fuck me, I can’t wait 12 months for this!!!

          • Chris Wright

            So many things to look forward to!!! Can’t… contain… my… excitement!!!!

        • Enno Urbeinz

          That would be great! I finally found a page to watch the stream in Germany – but without sound … Argh!!! What year is it again??

  • Jack Lugo

    is tom coming back on?

  • Harris Thomas

    wow! very cool that all the rumors were dead on point!

    • Jeff Silence

      Except for the Hilary Swank one. Kind of glad about that.

  • Ben Cherry

    Can’t wait for your podcast on the announcements guys!

    • Me too! I wanna record it now!!!

      • Chris Wright

        Tomorrow morning Tommy Boy and we’ll be on it!!!

  • I’m really really happy with that

  • Simon Woolley

    Jack – I think Tom is just busy coming full stop.

    • Jack Lugo

      Keeping the British end up?

      • The stream had about a 2 minute delay on it, so I don’t think it’s worth it. The internet is pretty dodgy here when it comes to upload speed sadly

  • Oliver Shane Madden

    Andrew Scott will propably be a shady MI6 character. Waltz freakin’ BLOFELD! Didnät really like the car. But loved the cast. But the main thing here is SPECTRE! At last!

    • Chris Wright

      So many good plus points there!!

  • Simon Woolley

    Time for a lie down I think.

    • Man, I wish there were some Bond fans near me in Thailand

      • Chris Wright

        Get your ass over to JB island and you’ll find a few! 🙂

    • Jeff Silence

      No time to lie down. Gotta go back to work. At least now I have more energy than a pot of coffee would have given me.

  • Jeff Silence

    I want that Spectre pic now. Put it up as my desktop wallpaper.

  • Reuben Wakeman

    Stella cast and looking forward to seeing how they reintroduce Blofeld back into the Bond world.

    • Chris Wright

      Lots to look forward too! 🙂

      • Reuben Wakeman

        Waltz is a damn fine actor so looking forward to seeing his portrayal. Will he be bald for it though?

        • Chris Wright

          Not sure… maybe not to start with but he has a aloepecia so loses his hair by the end of the film?

  • Well one thing is for sure, Kevin McClory would be turning in his grave trying to get a law suit going after this announcement!

    • Chris Wright

      Actually I believe he is!

      • Patrick Mulready

        Ah, but I knew that announcement 13 months ago that EON had reached a deal with McClory’s estate to buy the rights to his work was going to yield fandom dividends. I just didn’t think it would be in the very next film!

  • Jack Lugo

    Will Tom be going to James Bond Island to celebrate? Watch out for Scaramanga and Nick Nack!

  • Steven G

    Could the shot and breaking glass in the title design be a reference to OHMSS?

    • Chris Wright

      Ooh… interesting approach!!! Certainly could be!

  • Oliver Shane Madden

    Did anyone notice that the gunshot and cracks in the glass form Spectre’s octopus logo?

    • Simon Woolley

      Great spot Oliver.

    • Shit, good spot man, I missed that.

    • Chris Wright

      Yeah… great new design!!

  • Harris Thomas

    Craig looked rather fit!

  • Simon Woolley

    Special Posts, Excellent Car, Tremendous, Radical Event! SPECTRE!

  • Ooooh what’s this?

  • I’m watching it again!

  • William Redfern

    I’m soooooo excited. Wadya mean 11 months to wait. I want it NOW!

  • Simon Woolley

    Got the octopus!

  • Jeff Silence

    Just found this on the Telegraph:
    Here’s an official plot summary for the film, which has just been released by pinewood: “A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE”

    • Chris Wright

      Sounds like a hell of a story to me!!

    • I think I just wet myself

    • Oliver Shane Madden

      Cool! Reminds me a bit about the Skyfall synopsis – with Bond’s past/M’s past. However, could Bond’s past have something to do with the Oberhauser character from the Octopussy story? He was Bond’s ski instructor in his youth, and a father figure to Bond. It was rumored in the press that Oberhauser would be Waltz/Blofeld’s alias, was it not?

      • Indeed, I think that will most likely be the link to Bond’s past. Remember Mendes said that he wanted to continue the themes they explored in Skyfall? I’m guessing that means more about Bond past as a young’un.

  • Simon Woolley

    DB10

  • Simon Woolley

    Great motor

    • Brian Maxim

      those alloys were something else!

  • Simon Woolley

    The posters begin

  • Jeff Silence

    Time to go back to work (after going home to change my pants from the excitement). This was fun everyone!

  • Simon Woolley

    Bye for now – see you all on the FB group soon!

    • Chris Wright

      Haha… but wouldn’t have sounded as cool!

  • It was a pleasure watching with you guys…what an awesome reveal. I can’t wait to record the next podcast and talk about all of this.

    Quick favour: Can you guys leave your thoughts about today’s news as a voicemail on the right hand side of this page. We want to hear your thoughts and we’ll most likely include a lot of the messages in our next episode!

    • Jack Lugo

      We’re looking forward to the next podcast!!

  • Charlie Hunt

    Would have preferred a slightly more ambiguous title. On the plus side Babz was looking fit as always

    • Chris Wright

      Touche!

      • Chris, you need to get on that mate 😉

        • Chris Wright

          It’ll happen when the time is right! 😉

          • Simon Woolley

            No time like the present.

  • Rob Baker

    Very excited for SPECTRE! Obviously the title suggests a return to what made Bond so great in the first place. The casting of Christoph Waltz as (as mysteriously unnamed character by Mendes) is intriguing to say the least and, in my mind, along with the title, solidifies the truth to the rumor that he will be playing Bloefeld. Needless to say it’s going to be a long 12 months.

    • I’ve been excited about new Bond before, but I don’t think I’ve ever been quite as excited and intrigued about what the future may hold. I’ve been dreaming about SPECTRE coming back since I was a wee lad!
