James Bond's Latest, Spectre, Reveals Unusual, Familiar Co-Star On First Day Of Filming
One of the most lasting images frrom Sam Mendes' Skyfall was of s tiny, porcelain, Union Jack-covered bulldog. The relic - which originates from World War II - was one of the few things that survived the explosion in M's office, and was used rather perfectly symbolically throughout the film. It was a wonderful touch to include in the 23rd James Bond adventure, and it looks like it will be back for number 24.

Why The James Bond Franchise Isn't Goofy Anymore
When James Bond got the reboot treatment a few years back, it came with a new darker, more serious tone. Daniel Craig's version of 007 is a seemingly much more damaged individual than the incarnations played by the likes of Pierce Brosnan and Roger Moore. It's been successful thus far, with Casino Royale and Skyfall being considered two of the greatest Bond movies ever made, but it's still interesting that the franchise would turn its back on that part of its legacy.

Christoph Waltz May Fight James Bond Alongside This Epic TV Villain
When it comes to literary villains, Professor Moriarty has always been one of the most formidable opponents to ever have graced the page or the screen. His keen intellect is only matched by his psychotic mindset, and in countless instances he's made life a living hell for his arch-nemesis, Sherlock Holmes. Imagine how awesome it would be if he teamed up with the like minded Blofeld, the bane to the existence of famed super agent James Bond?

Christoph Waltz Might Be Playing This Classic James Bond Villain, Here's Why
So the rumor that caught fire last week was that two time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz has signed on for a mysterious role in Bond 24. So naturally, people think that his role is that of the film's latest villain. Waltz made his first great impression as an antagonist, and a brilliant one at that. This just makes us think that if Waltz is going to be a baddie in the Bond franchise, he's probably going to be the greatest baddie of all: Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

Is Christoph Waltz The Next Great Bond Villain?
It would appear that the filmmakers behind the James Bond franchise have begun using the Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner pool of the last few years to help them find an appropriate villain. For Skyfall, Sam Mendes turned to Javier Bardem - who took home the aforementioned prize for his turn in the Coen brothers' No Country For Old Men - and now it's being reported that the upcoming Bond 24 is looking to bring on two-time Academy Award winner Christopher Waltz to square off against 007.

James Bond Will Head To These Three Countries In Bond 24
In every James Bond movie, there are always a couple of exotic locations that 007 whisks away to. After all, international security can't be completely served if you're just sitting at a desk filing paperwork in England - at least not the type of international security Bond handles. Shooting locations are important to any Bond film because not only does this give us some sort of hint as to where the threat facing the world is coming from, it also hints at the usually amazing set pieces that a good James Bond adventure is based around.

British Crooner Sam Smith Is The Rumored Choice To Sing The Next James Bond Theme
No one would doubt that the James Bond films aren't huge everywhere: the last one, Skyfall, collected $1.1 billion dollars worldwide - over $300 million of that coming from America. But in England, they're absolutely NUTS for Agent 007, to the point where stories involving the new movie (slated for release November 6th, 2015) take on an almost fanatical level of rumor and conjecture. This happens particularly often in regards to the fabled "Bond theme." Who will be singing it this time for Bond 24?

James Bond 24 Orders Rewrites, Which Delays Production

How Daniel Craig Unknowingly Inspired Sam Mendes To Return For Bond 24
Before Skyfall, Sam Mendes was a director known for dour, character centered pieces that resonated with humanity. That's not the type of director that screams “James Bond ready”, but Mendes proved that the contrary was true as his finished product went on to become one of the best loved Bond films in the modern era.

Bond 24 To Have Strong Ties To Skyfall
The James Bond franchise isn't really one known for continuity, with most of the films in the series largely operating as individual stories, but that's something that has changed greatly in the Daniel Craig era. Director Sam Mendes has admitted that a great deal of the next 007 adventure, now simply known as Bond 24, will tie back to what we saw happen to the super spy in Skyfall.

The Next James Bond Film Will Begin Shooting In October
For a moment, I forgot that Ralph Fiennes was a part of the updated James Bond franchise. No disrespect to the amazing Oscar nominee, but when we think of Bond, we immediately think about Daniel Craig (the current 007), and maybe whichever actor is circling the role of “Bond Villain,” but not the man who has been tapped to replace Dame Judi Dench in the long-running spy franchise.

Skyfall Cinematographer Roger Deakins Won't Be Back For Bond 24
As I explained in my review released just prior to the movie hitting theaters back in 2012, Sam Mendes' Skyfall is a great film for many, many reasons. The story does fascinating things with the James Bond character, puts the franchise in an interesting modern context, and features one of the greatest Bond villains ever in Javier Bardem's Silva. Perhaps its greatest asset, though, is the cinematography of genius Roger Deakins.

Penelope Cruz Rumored To Play The Next Bond Girl
If rumors are to believed, it seems that the producers of the long-running James Bond franchise loved Javier Bardem's performance as the villainous Silva in Sam Mendes' Skyfall so much that they're even game to cast people related to him in the upcoming sequel. Like, for example, Bardem's wife.

Sam Mendes Won't Direct Bond 24

Bond 24 Already Being Written By John Logan
The news that Logan is back on board is an excellent sign we'll be see Bond again much sooner. Now I'm hoping his return means that Sam Mendes may also consider another go-round. He's said in interviews that he probably won't do another Bond film, and it's been nearly 25 years since any director actually repeated (that'd be John Glen, who directed all five 1980s Bond films)
