Jodie Turner Smith gets an early peek at the new James Bond movie No Time to Die in West Hollywood, California. The movie was originally slated for March 2020. After months of delay due to Covid-19, the movie is finally scheduled to be released in September.
Daniel Craig is reprising his role as James Bond. The movie is produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga.
Jodie Turner Smith attended dinner and a premiere at the San Vicente Bungalows (SVB), a very private social enclave for celebrities, set in West Hollywood. It has just 750 members, with guest privileges. So, it’s not as “common” as Soho House, by any means. Like Fight Club, you aren’t supposed to talk about your membership in the San Vicente Bungalows. The food is supposed to be good, but members don’t come for the food, the decor or the amenities. They’re there for the privacy and seclusion. It’s a place to make deals without being caught on someone’s cell phone or eavesdropped upon. Supposedly, your appearance there will not make it into a gossip magazine or blind item (unless you’re ceremoniously emerging from a chauffeured car, like Jodie, preparing to enter the small, intimate theater.
Rami Malek hosted the event and other guests included Oliver Stone, Micky Lee, Sarah Idan, Margot Robbie, Kaia Gerber, Alice Waddington, Augusto Aguilera, and Melanie Griffith.
SVB doesn’t decide it’s member list based on just wealth, fame or power. You’re supposed to have personality and spark. Perhaps that’s why membership for those under 35 years old costs less than half what it is for older adults. They seem to be going for a millennial, happening vibe, reminiscent of Studio 54 in its disco heyday.
