    I gotta wonder what did they expected Boyle would do with the material versus what they wanted when they chose to hire him.

    Even his most "accessible" work is still pretty stylistically eccentric and tonally off-kilter.

    Even the Bond and Queen Elizabeth bit from his 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony was bizarre and comedic!
    Yeah, it's always weird to me when directors with strong styles and voices leave franchise projects because of creative differences. Edgar Wright and Ant-Man comes to mind. Like, do these producers do any research on the directors' previous films?

    Agreed and its maddening. In that case and this one it feels like just the sort of shake up the material needs.

    Very frustrating. Boyle is a wonderful director and I would have liked to have seen his Bond film.

    Apparently, the villain has been cast although it remains to be seen whether Saïd Taghmaoui will remain Bond's foe what with the director turmoil.

    Just in time for Maniac, streaming at midnight PST tonight on Netflix!

    (I do really like the choice but I do feel like when I watch his new series that the lens of him doing Bond will now be there, which I would've never assumed anything like that before today.)

    Murder On The Orient Express (Branagh, 2017) – ***½ / 8.3
    Mission: Impossible – Fallout (McQuarrie, 2018) – ***½ / 8.8
    Blindspotting (Estrada, 2018) – ***½ / 8.4
    Leave No Trace (Granik, 2018) – ***½ / 8.6
    Eighth Grade (Burnham, 2018) – ***½ / 8.5

    And Henry Cavill rumoured to be Craig’s replacement afterwards.
