BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Sam Mendes returns to the James Bond series after delivering the most successful (financially speaking) chapter in the ongoing 007 legacy, Skyfall. From all that we have been able to piece together, Spectre will build on story elements introduced in Skyfall, plunging even further into the dark and storied past of Daniel Craigís version of the timeless spy.
Despite the fact that Spectre - the 24th big screen James Bond adventure Ė isnít coming out until the last few weeks of the year, weíve already gotten to see a surprising amount from the movie. Apparently, however the production is very excited to show off footage from the movie.
We recently went to the set of Spectre, the new James Bond movie, in Mexico City, where Sam Mendes and co. were busy filming the film's heart-pumping opening chase sequence. But seeing is believing. Watch this new behind-the-scenes video of actors Daniel Craig, Stephanie Sigman and Alessandro Cremona film Spectreís big opener.
Need some reassurance that Skyfall wasn't just a really awesome fluke in the long line of James Bond films? Let Christoph Waltz assure you that everything's alright.
Christoph Waltz is sick and tired of hearing that James Bond rumor. You know the one Iím talking about ó the one that suggests heís secretly playing iconic Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, even though his character name is Franz Oberhauser.
Towards the start of production for the next James Bond movie, Spectre, 007 suffered a knee injury that was reportedly a sprain. Unfortunately, it looks like the incident was more severe than we thought, as the actor recently underwent surgery to rectify the sprain.
A few months back a rewrite of Spectre was ordered. Well, it turns out that the official story left out some interesting tidbits about that rewrite. And now, the truth comes out. Apparently, Spectre received a whopping $20 million from the Mexican government in exchange for some script changes.
The latest installment of the James Bond franchise, Spectre, may still be in the midst of production, but with the movie coming out later this year, promotion and marketing is kicking into high gear a little bit early. Hence, today we have our first look at the legendary 007 back in action.
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.
Since Spectre mania is in full swing, now's a good time to start thinking about just what happened to Quantum? If this new piece of casting is the least bit true, we're about to find out.
Aston Martin is James Bondís car. Thereís no doubt about it. So itís no surprise that Aston Martin specifically developed a new model for the upcoming Bond film, Spectre.
Are you one of the more modern Bond fans who had no clue why everyone else was freaking out over the new film's title? If so, it is vital you read this briefing and bring yourself up to speed.
Bond 24 finally has a name, and some faces to go with it! Get all of the showstopping details within!
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.
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 looks like he's closer to being announced as a cast member to Bond 24, and judging by the latest reports we've scouted, we have a good idea on who he'll be playing.
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.
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.
After years of success in the wrestling industry, Dave Bautista is now starting to find some extreme success in Hollywood. This past summer he was part of the ensemble that made up James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy - playing Drax The Destroyer and doing so tremendously well. Obviously having an important role in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is pretty huge, but now rumors say that Bautista may have a part in one of the biggest movie franchises of all time.
The Bond girl for the 24th installment has been announced, and Lea Seydoux will be 007ís latest sparring partner when the film is released in 2015. Seydoux has previously appeared in the likes of Midnight In Paris and Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, but her most infamous portrayal came in the controversial, Blue Is The Warmest Color.
