However, when asked on Instagram whether he’d be “trimming and polishing” the movie’s final cut in the meantime, director Fukunaga has insisted to fans that the film is “great as it is” and won’t be worked on between now and the autumn release.
“Some people have asked me this and although more time would have been lovely, we had to put our pencils down when we finished our post-production window, which was thankfully before Covid shut everything else down,” he said.
“Although Bond is a big movie, we still have to weigh cost with value.
“And like anything, you could tinker endlessly. The movie is great as it is, hope yall will feel same too when it comes out [sic].”
It comes as Craig’s co-star Léa Seydoux gave her first review of the new film.
“There’s a lot of emotion in this Bond,” she told the Daily Mail.
“It’s very moving. I bet you’re going to cry. When I watched it, I cried, which is weird because I am in it.”
