    You're preaching to the choir, I was just explaining the difference. BOTH Never Say Never Again and the original Casino Royale are technically Bond films. They're simply different adaptations of the same source material.

    It's like the Star Wars EU (Expanded Universe). Those are and always will be considered official Star Wars books by fans even though they were dismissed (no longer canon) by Disney once they purchased the rights from Lucas. (Personally, I wish we'd have seen a sequel trilogy before a prequel trilogy while the original cast was still much younger and could have pulled off the Thrawn trilogy, for example).

    Not to get off on a tangent but honestly, if they are going back in time again? The only thing I want to see an adaptation of Knights of the old Republic (or something in that era).

    Release of James Bond film No Time To Die delayed amid coronavirus fears

    https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-51744374


    The release of the new James Bond film has been put back by seven months as coronavirus continues to spread.

    The producers said they had moved the release of No Time To Die from April to November after "careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace".

    The announcement comes days after the founders of two 007 fan sites called on the film studios to delay its release.

    It will now come out in the UK on 12 November, and in the US on 25 November.

    Not really--not from the studio perspective, anyway. The global box office will tank with Chinese theaters closed. For us? Yeah, it's pretty dumb. I'd been half convinced to watch it, but now? Probably not. Go suck up to China some more, and ignore the American audience. Two can play that game.

    Not just a China thing. You don’t think people are going to stop attending mass congregations here? It’ll happen.

    A co-worker (Networking in a school district) just had a meeting canceled because a particular vendor said all non-essential meetings for the time being will need to be canceled or handled remotely (conference call, webex, etc.) until further notice. Less human interaction.

    *shrug* might as well cancel my Stubs membership, then. If only crappy, low budget we-don't-care-about-congregating movies get released, I'll say buh-bye to going to the movies.

    Already happening in my company. All non-essential/critical travel is suspended and requires COO approval. The vast majority of our calls are to be video conferencing until further notice. I am not racking up any miles anytime soon.
