PostSubject: The Johnny English Thread   Fri Aug 04, 2017 3:02 am

I'm hungover so I can't be bothered looking for an existing thread today. 

That said, cameras have begun rolling on a third instalment based on Purvis and Wade's character. It's due for release next year, so it might be nice to see some Bond-esque action between now and Bond 25. 

I'd also love to see how they poke fun at the Bond series/spy genre.

The first one was a right laff. I saw the second one but once and, from memory, it was a bit shit and tried to be pseudo-serious.

Dunno if I'll see the third one, but I hope it's non-shit. Are white male microaggressors allowed to be funny anymore?

The Pike alone makes the second one watchable.

I hope Atkinson and team poke fun at the Bourne editing style, and satirise the 'origins' narrative structure that is diluting cinema.

Looks like... yeah.

A lot of Bond stuff as expected. GE-esque scene with the cyclists, DAD-esque virtual reality goggles, QOS-esque Helga who's not one for typecasting.

Looking forward to the new Johnny English. The first two were breezy fun and this looks no different. Also pleasantly surprised to see Bough back from the first film.

"Strikes again?"
It is "You only live three times" in German. It works better in German, a quite nice YOLT-variation. And it is a Bondian reference, whereas "Strikes again" could be pretty much everything. That's disappointing. angry

The hacker who reveals the identity of secret agents is SF, the digital threat is SP...The only agent who can take on the cyber criminals because he was not digitalised is, well, I'd say, a "dinosaur" (which would combine Craig-Bond and Brosnan-Bond)? big grin
This is very Bondian...

I liked best when he had the cocktail umbrella in his nose... ROTFLMAO

The character is spun off from a series of Barclaycard ads that starred Atkinson as an inept (but unnamed) secret agent.

If anything, as far this new trailer goes, I am pleased to see the choice of Aston. Something that made the first JE special.

That would have been a much better title, I agree.

Especially because he's reborn in the preceding film. And it is the third part of the film series.
This is a very clever "translation".
