Speaking, an insider explained: “There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says ‘Come in 007’, and walking in was Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman. It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond, but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.”
Acknowledging that Lashana was absolutely brilliant and Phoebe’s script was sharp and funny, the source added: “This bond pays tributes to earlier movies with a lot of humor.”
