    Hollywood's Intent for James Bond Is Proof It No Longer Lives In Reality

    The standard for Hollywood today is to take a previously established franchise that is highly beloved and then proceeds to bastardize it in order to push the left’s narratives and agendas.

    You’re currently watching it happen with a lot of your favorite brands from Star Wars to Marvel. Of course, the left has made it very clear for years that they’ve had their eye on the Bond franchise.

    The reason being is pretty obvious. James Bond is everything they hate. He’s a charming, confident, competent, and masculine man who attracts women’s carnal desires despite themselves. For Hollywood, as infected with the social justice virus as it is, a character like Bond can’t be allowed to exist. He’s the antithesis of their message and any success he has without their hand in it will be a disaster for their narrative.

    The playbook requires that people have no place to go to get away from their message. Everything must carry it or it must be rejected and either thrown out or changed to fit the narrative. If something is gaining success outside the approved messaging it could spell disaster for the agenda. It may start a trend that pulls society away from it, and that can’t be allowed to happen.

    But the left doesn’t have to worry because they’ve managed to infect the studio where Bond is being produced now too. As a result, they’re going to change Bond from being Bond to being…something else.

    As Bounding Into Comics reported, Bond’s producers are saying that he’s going to “evolve” just like modern men are evolving:

    However, it seems this next incarnation of Bond will be far from a complete ‘reinvention’ of the character, as Variety writes that Broccoli confirmed to them that the “humanizing of the once-womanizing spy and the ensuring of more fulfilling, meatier roles for the female stars of the franchise” done during her and her brother’s handling of the franchise will “continue in the next films”.

    “It’s an evolution,” asserted Broccoli, who in addition to serving as a James Bond producer is also the current director of the UK chapter of Time’s Up. “Bond is evolving just as men are evolving. I don’t know who’s evolving at a faster pace.”
    While Daniel Craig absolutely brought another layer to the Bond character by making his investments in the story far more personal and therefore his emotions were explored more than in previous versions, Craig’s Bond walked a fine line. Moreover, that line was absolutely crossed a couple of times in his latter movies, resulting in some sub-par Bond moments.

    That said, these producers are unclear as to what’s happening to men. Men aren’t “evolving,” the wish from the left is that we “evolve” to fit what they think a man should look like and so they try to manifest it into reality with pop culture.

    The issue is that “evolve” in the leftist Hollywood sense means less masculinity. They want more emotionally in-touch men who take a back seat to women strictly on the basis of sex. They want “socially aware” men who know of their own “privilege” and work to fight against it. They want men who use their voices more than their fists, yet know when to keep their voices down while anyone nearby higher up in the victim Olympics is speaking.

    In short, they want to neuter Bond because they want neutered men.

    While neutered men might be a common sight in Hollywood’s elite coastal circles, they’re hardly the most common type of man. This is why Bond is headed for disaster. The secret agent appealed to men more than any other audience and taking away what made him appealing to men is just going to make audiences vacate theaters. If they’re hoping that gap will be filled by a new audience that is closer to their ideological home, then I’ve got bad news for them.

    Few will actually show up and the proof is in the fact that every time they attempt to cater to these “new audiences” the product falls flat on its face. Marvel properties are losing steam to the point where people aren’t even showing up to watch anymore. Star Wars has seen such an audience bleed that it has anemic viewership. Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is doing so badly that they refuse to release the metrics for it.

    Get woke, go broke. It will be the same for this “modern” Bond as it is for every other “modern” remake.

    Hey ResidentEvil7,

    Stern has just announced three James Bond 007 pinball machines, each based on a different movie, and so far it doesn't look like they've neutered Mr. Bond.

    Unusually, they have given the three models a different name, each based upon a movie:

    Pro version is called Dr. NO (MSRP $6,999)

    Premium version is called You Only Live Twice (MSRP $9,699)

    Limited Edition Version is called Thunderball (MSRP $12,999)

    There will also be a "60th Anniversary Limited Edition Version", not sure of the specific movie name yet (MSRP TBA), "full reveal coming soon".

    Save your pennies!

    I can hardly wait to stay home from the new Bond movie.
    Not interested in a kinder, gentler, crying, Prius driving, man bun wearing Bond.

    In the beginning there was no more watchable TV.

    This is the end of audio-graphical entertainment, the only thing left to watch is the developing and evolving WORLD WAR III



    Bundle up, boys, it's gonna be a long cold endless winter.

    The big losers here are the theater owners. Last week's biggest movie was the Woman King at $19 million is 3,765 theaters. That's $5k a theater for the whole weekend. Uh, you ain't covering the rent and the payroll on that revenue stream long term. I predict they start showing older classics like Jaws to bring people into theaters because the new crop of films are basically unwatchable preachfests that no one, especially in a recession, is going to spend money on in a theater.

    Hollywood is trying to ram a message down out throats that the paying customer is rejecting. The decided to hire activists instead of writers and the results are predictably bad. It will continue until the financial pain becomes too great and the shareholders of these companies start banging the drum to give up on this shit. Until then, they will still make movies to appease the Twitter mob, hope to breakeven or profit a little on streaming and slowly bleed to death until they make movies with broad based appeal. Money, as always, will be judge and jury.

    In my experience, the vast majority of women still harbour desires for men to be men. They're deeply attracted to masculinity, and respect it. Only the feminist ideology finds it offensive, and I believe most feminists only find it offensive on the surface. Deep down, subconsciously, most women/feminists recognise true masculinity for what it is: desirable. When I go to bars on Saturday nights, the broadest, stubble-bound, rough around the edges men seem to attract the admiring glances of the most feminine and prettiest women. That will never change. These women will never approach limp lettuce leaf eating men. It's a human truth too far buried in the psyche to be subverted by wokeism.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see film franchises begin to reflect normal classic visions of human life again within 5-10 years. Deep down we all know what's desirable in the opposite sex and how we want them to behave. I'm sure lots of women love the classic James Bond films because they're able to observe pure masculinity. Why on earth were the 50 Shades of Grey books so incredibly popular amongst women? A billionaire man being a dom in the bedroom is what women want whether they consciously realise it or not. Many won't admit it even to themselves, but deep down recognise the desirabiltiy inherent within him.

    Spooks post nails it.

    What I see is a multi million or even more case of blue pill stupidity. The Hollywood fools have no understanding of female nature. Or the results of such a feminized society.

    Hollywood has no clue. You do not listen to a woman. You watch her actions. These idiots are investing millions in what a feminized society is saying. Yet paying no attention to what they are doing. We are witness to the most expensive way ever to learn this. Could not happen to a more deserving group of idiots.

    Top Gun was a massive success. Just a good old fashioned flick. Great story. Well acted. No preaching. Just pure entertainment. The cash just rolled in. Not so with the woketard shit they have made.

    Skywrap nails the business end of it

    All the Woke films fail while Senior Aged Citizen Tom Cruise can clean up at the box office with Top Gun Maverick, a sequel made 36 years after the original where Cruise plays a MGTOW type pilot who dodges promotions so he can keep flying jets.

    I noticed the Bond films lost it with Pierce Brosnan anyway, they became too far fetched and then they started trying to copy the Jason Bourne films.

    I hope you are right... I see it as they are at any cost, manipulating men to be weak. Any resistance is planned to be met with shame. It is big money that funds Hollywood, and that big money is also funding the WEF plans. What the WEF has advertised for us will not accept strong men in the masses. They have invested heaps of money into their plans already, another 10yrs of losing money in Hollywood would be a drop in the bucket, likely taken out of American 401 retirement funds anyway. Recently the WEF put out a "Hush" order on the Agenda 2030 plans/updates, hoping the resistance will die down. This is just one step of many. We have just gone through 2 years of obeying useless mandates and lockdowns with total media control pushing false news. They successfully tested the division of society, with shaming tactics. Now we are experiencing the destruction of the middle class with inflation, watch the retirement funds disappear. Look what is happening in China, they are a year or two ahead of the west. A war in the Ukraine where there has been conflict since the fall of the Iron Curtin running a smoke screen over the whole mess...

    Hollywood is pure manipulation, where is that directive coming from? Follow the money. It's all 100% money and power driven. They want your money and you powerless.

    Hollywood only has the power I grant it. With high speed internet and an unlimited data plan I can stream movies from the last hundred years or so and a lot of the services are free. Hollywood can go pound sand. I'm busy catching up on movies that I was too young to see back in the seventies. Most of those movies couldn't be made today.

    What a shame! The Bond franchise was my absolute favorite. I've watched it from the very beginning. In the latest movie, No Time To Die, we got a real kidney punch with the reassignment of the 007 to the female agent. She did give it back to him before he died, but still. It was a sign of what'll come. Too bad the woke mob is destroying this character.
