    Thanks, Marvel! Now everyone thinks their popcorn adventure movie is some kind of David Lean epic that MUST run hours long to fully tell its very important tale.

    To be far, Casino Royale was something like 2 hours 20 minutes, two years before the MCU started. Skyfall and Spectre were slightly longer and don’t see that as a Marvel influence.

    There's nothing wrong with a movie being 163mins long as long as it has 163mins worth of story to tell.

    My biggest problem with most of the Daniel Craig Bond movies was that they felt way too long and this one is 20 minutes longer? I'm judging before I see it but I can't see a longer run time being something that I end up liking even if the movie is something I overall enjoy. And it's not a blind prejudice against 3 hour movies because the last couple Avengers movies and Peter Jackson & James Cameron make long movies but they moved. Conversely, the recent Bond movies are shorter than those movies but feel like they were a day and a half long because they had a bunch of extra needless action scenes to make sure the movie ran really long.

    I actually find some of those Marvel movies to bee too long. And if any of the Craig Bond’s could have benefited from bing a little shorter IMO it would be Casino Royale, which was shorter than both Skyfall and Spectre.

    I find most movies these days, especially the big blockbusters, to be too long. With release dates set in stone, I don't think they have enough time to spend on editing.

    Not surprisingly, it's officially PG-13. There are also rumours floating around that there may be a post-converted 3D version.

    Watching the trailer, it comes across as yet another "existential angst" Bond film. Whatever happened to just making these things entertaining instead of always trying to send us a "message".

    I for one don’t mind the direction and tone they’ve gone with since Craig came on and I feel it’s one of the best eras of Bond on film. I wouldn’t say they had “messages”, but are just more deep and interesting than the average Bond while also entertaining in a Bondian way. A lot of stuff in there that really feels like the books (at least the good aspects of the books, which could be extremely flawed at times).

    I know a lot of people enjoy making fun of how they’ve done the “this time it’s personal” angle since Licence to Kill, which I always found to be a bit of an overstatement. But I know that they just aren’t for everyone regardless. I’m just happy for what we’ve been getting since 2006. :)

    With the longer run time I feel like Bond has time on his hands / side....

    this film will have “all the time in the world” to tell it’s story!!!

    I think this director is actually really good at doing deliberately paced, slow burn, great tension type of direction so a longer runtime could be a plus in his hands.

    I will watch it with my dad, as we (alongside with my brother) did this since Moonraker came out.
    We had a break after Roger Moore had his last 007-film and continued the tradition when Daniel Craig began his 007 career.

    What's with Rami Malek's face? Looks like they aged him, rather than the de-aging we've seen recently on other films.

    Poster art = dull and unimaginative. The art of the theatre poster has been lost since photography replaced hand-drawn and painted poster art.
