'No Time To Die' Theme Song May Feature Big Clues About Daniel Craig's Final 007 Movie

Did you notice these?

We’re only a few weeks from the release of Daniel Craig’s final James Bond film No Time To Die, but we got our first feel for the film with Billie Eilish’s theme for the film by the same name.

Fans are very curious about what will happen to Bond, with many believing the agent will die in the film, but Eilish’s song seems to offer some big clues about a major plot point in the film.

There are plenty of Bond themes that have very little to do with the movie and are more bout the characters, for example, the theme for Goldfinger.

But others directly address themes from the movie, like Adele’s Skyfall song – and it seems as though Billie’s song for No Time To Die falls into the same category.

The haunting tune doesn’t give us much hope for Bond with the lyrics centring on a tragic betrayal. Not just any betrayal, however, in this case, it comes from someone you love.

The first verse is about a meaningful relationship ending badly:

“I should have known
I’d leave alone
Just goes to show
That the blood you bleed is just the blood you owe
We were a pair
But I saw you there
Too much to bear”

As we near the chorus, Eilish sings about being caught off guard:

“You were my life, but life is far away from fair
Was I stupid to love you?
Was I reckless to help?
Was it obvious to everybody else?”

Then, the chorus continues on the theme of betrayal:

“That I’d fallen for a lie
You were never on my side
Fool me once, fool me twice
Are you death or paradise?
Now you’ll never see me cry
There’s just no time to die”

Thanks to the trailer, fans believe Daniel Craig’s Bond will be betrayed by Madeleine Swan, his love interest from Spectre.

The new No Time To Die trailer featuring Eilish’s song sees Bond burning a note featuring the words “Forgive me.”

Another theory is that Madeleine won’t survive the film because Bond is seen in front of what appears to be a mausoleum.

No Time To Die is out in cinemas on 8 April.

Harrison Ford Reveals The Toughest Part About Returning To His Iconic Roles

Makes sense!

Harrison Ford has confirmed he will be returning as Indiana Jones for a fifth movie in the franchise, revealing he begins work on the movie in the coming months.

According to WTHR, 77-year-old appeared in an interview on CBS’ Sunday Morning Show and was asked about the toughest part about returning to his iconic roles and the actor, who has reprised his role as Han Solo in recent years, joked, “Trying not to look funny running around in tight pants and high boots.”

“I’ll try and give you a more appropriate answer,” he added. “Considering that I’m going to start doing Indiana Jones in about two months.”

He went on to say, “I’m always delighted to come back to these characters. If we have the opportunity to make another, it’s because people have enjoyed them.”

“I feel obliged to make sure our efforts are as ambitious as they were when we started. You have a sense of responsibility to your customers.”

According to CinemaBlend, he also dropped some hints about the film, “I’m not going to share the story with you because that doesn’t seem like a good idea. But we’ll see new developments in his life, his relationship. We’ll see part of his history resolved.”

The last Indiana Jones film, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was released in 2008 and was largely considered a flop.

A question on many people’s minds is whether or not Shia LaBeouf will reprise his role as Mutt from the last movie. However, writer David Koepp said in 2018 that LaBeouf’s character isn’t expected to return.

The publication also reports that Koepp said in 2019, “We’ve got a good idea this time.”

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kelly has also confirmed Indiana Jones 5 will be a continuation of the story and not a reboot and Ford has previously said that when he is gone, the character will not be up for grabs.

Steven Spielberg will direct Indiana Jones 5 after finishing work on his remake of West Side Story.

Um, 'Birds Of Prey' Might Be Changing Its Name Because It's Too... Fun?

Seriously?!

Margot Robbie’s new DC flick Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) might be getting a name change in theatres because, apparently, it’s too fun.

Refinery29 reports that Warner Bros. has confirmed American cinemas will title the film Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey following a disappointing first weekend at the box office in the US.

The film opened with $33 million, but was projected to earn $50-55 million on its opening weekend.

Entertainment Weekly reports a possible reason for this – perhaps the film’s R rating meant younger viewers couldn’t watch?

Warner Bros. seems to think the problem instead lies with people not knowing the movie focuses on Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.

It hasn’t been confirmed that the movie’s disappointing box office numbers are to blame for the title change and it’s very rare for a movie’s title to change post-release.

While the box office numbers might suggest the movie isn’t doing all that well, reviews for the film say something else entirely.

Reviewer Christy Lemire wrote, “From its lively and vibrant animated opening, [Cathy] Yan’s film is a complete blast, filled with zippy energy and irresistible girl power. And Robbie, in her seemingly endless versatility, is up for every challenge in a role that’s as demanding physically as it is verbally. She is positively infectious in the candy-colored chaos she creates.”

Lemire added, “The title refers to Harley’s emancipation but all five women get to feel what it’s like to blaze new trails on their own terms. The timing couldn’t be more apt in this post-#MeToo era, and the tone of “Birds of Prey” feels like a welcome breath of hopeful air following last year’s well-acted but self-serious ‘Joker.'”

“#ReasonsToSupportBoP” has also received a number of mentions on Twitter with one fan writing, “It’s a film directed by an Asian woman. Written by an Asian woman. With an Asian cinematographer. Starring all women, one Black, one Latina, one Asian. With multiple Queer characters. THERE YOU GO.”

Another wrote, “First ever movie for [Black Canary] and Huntress, first ever female team film, beautiful cinematography, amazing action sequences, and just an overall good time! Trust me see [Birds Of Prey]!”

Someone else added, “It’s a movie that Margot has been fighting for for five years. It exposes the general public to great lesser known characters and is full of diversity in front of and behind the camera. It could greenlight movies such as Gotham City Sirens in the future.”

While the title is quite the mouthful, it does perfectly capture the essence of the film and describes Harley Quinn’s journey of being her own woman following her split with the Joker and then the formation of the Birds of Prey.

Shortening the title actually does the film a disservice by taking away the importance of Harley’s new path.

It will be interesting to see the eventual box office success of the film, but Birds of Prey has definitely added some much-needed colour to the DCEU.
