Online news outlets confused by old gun barrel tweet

18-Jun-2019 • No Time To Die

Mail Online (Daily Mail), ET Canada, and Metro are all super confused by a somewhat innocuous tweet from the official 007 account today.

As Daniel Craig is expected back this week to resume filming, the @007 account tweeted the following:

Unfortunately, the online news outlets failed to spot that the gun barrel gif posted in the tweet was from 'Casino Royale'. Somehow, the media thought this was a new preview of Daniel Craig in Bond 25.

ET Canada: "A tiny teaser for the eagerly anticipated “James Bond 25” movie has been released. The official “Bond” Twitter account shared a snippet of an updated version of Daniel Craig’s trademark gun barrel sequence. The actor can be seen stepping in front of a white tiled background, wearing his usual suit and white shirt combo while firing a gun."

Mail Online: "Only known as Bond 25 currently, the small teaser will be enough to scintillate fans of the spy series, who have been waiting since 2015 for a new instalment. The clip is sharp but effective; as returning 007 Daniel Craig steps out in front of a sterile-looking white tiled backdrop, in a suit and open-collar shirt, turning to face the camera and firing his gun."

Metro: "The official Bond Twitter account as given fans a little taste of the actor in action. In a post uploaded earlier today, the 51-year-old can be seen dressed in a black suit while he twirls in front of the camera while firing his gun. The much loved character rolls into view with a backdrop of white tiles, while a spotlight frames him on screen."
