No Time To Die director reveals the movie’s toughest stunts to film
Yes, one of them is THIS amazing motorcycle jump.
When we see a James Bond movie, we expect to see some big stunts.
The franchise is essentially in a nuclear arms race of sorts with the Mission: Impossible series to see who can pull off the most awesome big sets, with the added excitement of knowing that the actors involved, more often than not, do these stunts for. for real.
No time to die is no different, as anyone who has seen the action-packed trailer can attest, with the reported A $ 300 million blockbuster absolutely filled to the ears with tense and explosive sets.
And the man who has to oversee all of this is the film’s director and co-writer Cary Joji Fukanaga (True Detective, Maniac), who is the very first American director to direct a Bond film.
In the lead up to the film’s release, we chatted with Fukanaga from No Time To Die, and also interviewed some of the stars of No Time To Die, including the Oscar winner. Rami malek (who plays the movie’s big bad, Safin), as well as Ben Whishaw (who plays Q from Skyfall) and LÃ©a Seydoux (who returns as Bond’s love interest, Dr Madeleine Swann).
Check out our full interview with Fukanaga here:
During our conversation with the director, he revealed his favorite Bond song, his earliest memory of Craig in character, while also helping the actor say goodbye to the iconic role.
But we also had a bit of a chat about the big stunts in the movie, with the centerpiece of the trailer being that wacky bike jump, and Fukanaga went into great detail on what was needed to achieve it:
âThe bike stunt was difficult because of the engineering and physics involved in getting it done. And just the lack of time. Lee Morrison, our stunt coordinator, had very little time to prepare for this one.
“So just getting the permits, scaffolding, ramp and ramp angle, getting the right crosswind and tuning the motors to get this bike in good technical condition was everything. an achievement in itself. “
However, there is another scene that Fukanaga brought up, which seemed to be the most difficult setting in the film to accomplish:
âThere’s one in particular, which I can’t really talk about unfortunately, but it took a lot for each department to get it all running smoothly. And when we got the take you could feel that excitement of everyone gathered around the monitor to watch it, you feel like ‘Oh yeah, we’ve got something cool out there’. “
After watching the movie, we’re 100% sure we know which action scene it refers to, and once you’ve watched the movie you’ll know exactly what it is when you spot it as well.
