It’s that time again. Thursday December 4th 2014, will bring the announcement of the title and cast of Bond 24. The live cast direct from Pinewood Studios will be taking place at 11am GMT sharp, so make sure you’re here to witness it first hand.
Both Chris and I will be here posting comments below the video as the news is released and we’d love it if you’d join in the discussion too.
This is it guys, Bond history in the making!
Watch the Livestream direct from Pinewood Studios here…
LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW…
The Hildebrand Rarity i actually like but to use as a song difficult,? As i wait with patience what are your picks for title?
I’d be happy with Risico or Shatterhand!
If we get a SkyFall 2, can I punch someone in the face repeatedly?
You may indeed 🙂
Better not be The Solace of Quantum.
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!
76 minutes…and counting….
Counting or Coounnntttiiiiiing?
Alright. Ready to do this. My work colleagues think I’m crazy to obsess over this, but who cares what they think?
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?!
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.
Shit, I’m gonna get that just to make sure.
I’ve got tea and biscuits (it’s early) roll on the press conference!
Thank you so much for this, guys, as the Pinewood Livestream is not available in Germany … Grrrrrr …!
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.
Good day Tom my man! Only 22 minutes to go!!! 🙂
lets to this!!!
6am here in the USA
I admire your dedication, Harris!
I’m so excited!
Beautiful man… just beautiful!!! 🙂
WE ARE almost there
This is probably the second most exciting moment other than actually watching the movie itself for the first time.
any last minute title guesses? Hildebrand Rarity anyone?
I’m still holding out for Risico.
Risico or Shatterhand would be rad!
Risico would be my choice
Anyone else around to enjoy the build up????????
I’m here Chris!
Yup! All systems go!
Bollocks to it, I switched me off, it was way too slow 🙂
might you be able to audio only?
I can here you
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
OK. I can see you clearly now.
ARGH HOLY SHIT!
NOW THAT IS A VERY GOOD START TO PROCEEDINGS!
awesome!!! One has to wonder if there’s something more to this selection.
Is anybody else’s heart beating like crazy?
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!!!
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.
Here we go!!!!!
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
You and me both!
Loving this build up!!! 🙂
New Aston for Chris!
Chris must be helping Babs get ready
Well, he’s got an Aston then, that’s for sure 😉
10 people are confirmed to be on stage
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
While Chris is proposing to Babs..
And the montage begins!
It’s like that In Memoriam montage they show at the Oscars every year.
The longest 10 minutes.
YOU’RE THE BEST!
Good luck everybody. History in the making right now
Now that was a montage!
Everyone holding their breath….!!!
Great montage!!! Going to need to see that again!
The world’s best secret agent – of that there’s no Doubt, as Alan Partridge would sat.
I’m having one….
I wonder if there was any Bond stuff in that big Sony hack. Watch out for spoilers.
Who’s going to step out first?????
Babs. Gotta be.
Ooh Babs… my favourite!! 🙂
Probably Babs and MGW
I’m calling Michael G. Wilson & Barbara Broccoli
Ohhh man, I’m so so so so so excited!
50 seconds and countinnggggg
35 seconds and counting!
No love for Barry Nelson. Haahaha!
To be fair he was “Jimmy” Bond
ooohh a countdown
Actually nervous. How funny haha
What an awesome compilation!!
The suspence is nerve breaking!
Good luck everyone!
Good luck everybody! My heart is pounding and my balls are tightening!
And the title is……
Sam and Babs!!
Sam and Babs!!! YESSS!!
Babs! Babs! Fire! Explosion! Babs!
My my… Babs my future wife looking suitably hot as ever!!! 😛
here it is!!!
Here it comes….
Flames Fire Explosion…
YES YES YES YES YES!
So what do you think it’s going to be about?
OH MY GOD!!!! SPECTRE!!!!!
SPECTRE is BACK!!!!
Can’t believe it wasn’t “pigeon double take”
The Spectre of Defeat for Bond 25!
Well, that’s it for Quantum then
JESUS HOLY FUCK!
I have just taken off all of my clothes and covered myself head to toe in butter
Erfoud! That’s another Bond location I’ve been to!
Say hello to Mr Blofled once again! 🙂
Physically shaking with excitement
Me too, me too!
Mine’s olive oil… I’m all slippery and ready for action!!! 🙂
Not 100% sure if I love the name?
Wow, not an actual Fleming title, but who cares – SPECTRE it is
I’M SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!!!!
This is wonderful! As far a title goes it’s OK… But what it means! Blofeld back! NERDGASM!
And now: is Christoph Walz really Blofeld?
Oooh cast members!!!
They can’t possibly hide the fact that Blofeld is in this film
Here comes the car….
THE CAR IS BLOFELD!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh fuck the DB10
Pants officially wetted
Fuck my life that car is GORGEOUS!!!! DB10 here we come!!! 🙂 And here I cum!!
dirty…but me too
CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP!!!!
Looking good so far…
Feeling hot hot hot
Why do they have the most subdued audience there? If we were there it would sound like a football match.
Denby eh? MI6
So happy Andrew Scott is in!! Phenomenal in Sherlock
Andrew Scott. I guess the rumor was true.
Yeah he will be amazing!!! Check out HUNK A CHUNK!!!!
Haha there he is
Ooooooh, they’ve stuck with Hinx!
No no HUNK A CHUNK!!!
OMG Lea and Monica look devine!! 🙂
Here he comes!
Blofeld in Boomtown!!!
That’s a bingo!!!
Guess the music cue….
I’m happy his hair is a touch longer than Skyfall
Oh, that’s it?
Great news Guys!!! How does everyone feel????
Impatient for next November
You and about 7 billiion other people too!
That cast is flipping AMAZING!!!!
I’m glad the Mark Strong thing didn’t happen
And I’m in Mexico City next week!
Ooh Bond location shots!!
And as quickly as it started… it stops…
Always leave ’em wanting more
Unless you were there then you could gatecrash the VIP area!
That was seriously quick. I demand a new podcast episode from you guys early!
HAHAHA… we will be recording one first thing tomorrow and will try and get it out ASAP!!
Beautiful. Fuck me, I can’t wait 12 months for this!!!
So many things to look forward to!!! Can’t… contain… my… excitement!!!!
That would be great! I finally found a page to watch the stream in Germany – but without sound … Argh!!! What year is it again??
is tom coming back on?
wow! very cool that all the rumors were dead on point!
Except for the Hilary Swank one. Kind of glad about that.
Can’t wait for your podcast on the announcements guys!
Me too! I wanna record it now!!!
Tomorrow morning Tommy Boy and we’ll be on it!!!
I’m really really happy with that
Jack – I think Tom is just busy coming full stop.
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
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!
So many good plus points there!!
Time for a lie down I think.
Man, I wish there were some Bond fans near me in Thailand
Get your ass over to JB island and you’ll find a few! 🙂
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.
I want that Spectre pic now. Put it up as my desktop wallpaper.
Stella cast and looking forward to seeing how they reintroduce Blofeld back into the Bond world.
Lots to look forward too! 🙂
Waltz is a damn fine actor so looking forward to seeing his portrayal. Will he be bald for it though?
Not sure… maybe not to start with but he has a aloepecia so loses his hair by the end of the film?
I don’t feel like Blofeld has to be bald.
Well one thing is for sure, Kevin McClory would be turning in his grave trying to get a law suit going after this announcement!
Actually I believe he is!
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!
Will Tom be going to James Bond Island to celebrate? Watch out for Scaramanga and Nick Nack!
I am going on Saturday! Pics and video to follow soon after!
Could the shot and breaking glass in the title design be a reference to OHMSS?
Ooh… interesting approach!!! Certainly could be!
Did anyone notice that the gunshot and cracks in the glass form Spectre’s octopus logo?
Great spot Oliver.
Shit, good spot man, I missed that.
Yeah… great new design!!
Craig looked rather fit!
Special Posts, Excellent Car, Tremendous, Radical Event! SPECTRE!
Ooooh what’s this?
I’m watching it again!
I’m soooooo excited. Wadya mean 11 months to wait. I want it NOW!
Got the octopus!
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”
Sounds like a hell of a story to me!!
I think I just wet myself
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.
those alloys were something else!
The posters begin
Time to go back to work (after going home to change my pants from the excitement). This was fun everyone!
Indeed it was. I need a lie down after that
Bye for now – see you all on the FB group soon!
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!
We’re looking forward to the next podcast!!
Would have preferred a slightly more ambiguous title. On the plus side Babz was looking fit as always
Chris, you need to get on that mate 😉
It’ll happen when the time is right! 😉
No time like the present.
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!
