Christoph Waltz once again denies playing Bond villain Blofeld in Spectre

7 April 2015 11:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems that Christoph Waltz is sticking to his story. On the very day that the cast for Spectre was officially unveiled, actor Christoph Waltz revealed that his character was called Franz Oberhauser, despite many believing he would play the classic Bond villain Blofeld. Since then he has denied playing Blofeld several times, but since the release of the first teaser trailer many fans are sure that his character is indeed super spy’s arch nemesis.

In an interview with GQ, Waltz was once again asked if he is playing Blofeld to which he responded, “That is absolutely untrue. That rumour started on the Internet, and the Internet is a pest. The name of my character is Franz Oberhauser.”

Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time an actor has lied to cover up their role. Marion Cotillard repeatedly denied playing Talia Al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises, »

Daniel Craig Undergoes Minor Knee Surgery Following Spectre Set Accident

6 April 2015 8:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Of all the things to stop James Bond dead in his tracks, a small knee injury wouldn’t be the first obstacle to come to mind. Nevertheless, following an on-set accident back in February, MGM has confirmed that star Daniel Craig underwent minor knee surgery during a scheduled Spectre break to correct said injury. He is human, after all!

Here’s what a spokesperson had to say about the incident, which won’t have any impact on the film’s production schedule.

“During a scheduled break, Daniel Craig had arthroscopic surgery to repair his knee injury. He will rejoin production on April 22nd at Pinewood.”

Craig first sprained his knee whilst filming an action scene at England’s famous Pinewood Studios, though this didn’t affect Spectre‘s European shoots that followed, as it’s understood the actor didn’t miss any days of filming as production switched to Rome »

'Spectre': Daniel Craig Has Minor Surgery for Bond Injury

6 April 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Seemingly always under a perpetual black cloud during production, Spectre has experienced another small set back. Daniel Craig is said to have sprained his knee in early February while shooting an action sequence on set at Pinewood Studios. He had to undergo knee surgery this weekend, though Eon Productions says it was a 'minor procedure'. The actor was flown to New York for the surgery during Easter break.

A spokeswoman for Spectre says that production will not be delayed. She also denied that the 47 year-old Daniel Craig had missed 'several days of shooting' on the 24th 007 movie. She says:

"During a scheduled break, Daniel Craig had arthroscopic surgery to repair his knee injury. He will rejoin production on April 22nd at Pinewood."

Spectre began filming last December at the Pinewood Studios location in Buckinghamshire. The film has since shot on location in Rome and Mexico. Spectre will serve as Daniel Craig »

Trailer Trashin’: Decoding the Spectre Teaser Trailer

6 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Sorry it’s been so long since the last column, dear readers. I’ve been very busy these last couple weeks, doing things such as finishing up a book I’m writing, celebrating my birthday, and getting to see Heart and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts in concert. But I have returned to Trailer Trashin’, with our first look at the next James Bond movie, Spectre.

Premise: In the aftermath of the bombing of MI6, a cryptic message sets in motion events that will see James Bond (Daniel Craig) come face-to-face with a sinister organization known as Spectre. As Gareth Mallory (Ralph Fiennes), the newly-appointed M, continues fighting political pressures that threaten the future of MI6, Bond is drawn into a confrontation with an enemy who knows him better than he knows himself and holds a dangerous secret that will force Bond to question the value of everything he has fought to protect. »

Daniel Craig Injured On Set of 'Spectre', Undergoes Surgery

5 April 2015 12:48 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Prior to the Internet, if you heard an actor was on the set of a new movie it was most likely going to be during the press rounds, but nowadays, as soon as it happens, it's online and discussed immediately. Not that such "news" has any particular value, but it gives us something to read and discuss, particularly given the heightened awareness of on set safety as late. The most notable case being the death of Midnight Rider camera assistant Sarah Jones who died at the age of 27 last year when she was struck by a train, which resulted in director Randall Miller getting a 10-year sentence. Today's news isn't nearly as dire, not even by a longshot, as it has been reported Daniel Craig underwent Easter Day surgery after sustaining a knee injury while filming the next James Bond movie, Spectre. Eon Productions confirmed the news and called it »

Play-By-Play Breakdown Of Spectre’s Opening Sequence Appears Online

30 March 2015 8:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’ve seen the alpine behind-the-scene images, not to mention elusive snippets and the rather excellent first trailer, but now, the Spectre tide of excitement has shifted toward the spy thriller’s opening sequence.

First picked up by Collider, the outlet spoke to one of the unit publicists on set, who offered up a play-by-play breakdown of the explosive, ambitious scene. Boasting an incredible amount of extras — over 1,000, in fact — not to mention a helicopter and a high-octane chase, the segment certainly appears to boast all of the wonderful ingredients that make-up a Bond opener, and it’s said that this dazzling snippet in particular will clock in at around 12 minutes in length.

Daniel Craig will reprise his role as the 00 agent for the fourth consecutive time, and Spectre‘s cast will be rounded out by Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, Lea Seydoux and, more recently, »

Spectre Teaser Trailer Pushes Continuation Of Bond Psychology

30 March 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Spectre is likely to be as divisive as Skyfall when it comes to long-time James Bond fans, and, speaking as one, I find it difficult to look forward to the release. I’m not sure the new teaser trailer is helping me.

Frankly, after Sam Mendes announced he wasn’t going to do another Bond film, a lot of people breathed a sigh of relief. If you want to make a film that isn’t a Bond film, go ahead, but don’t make more “let’s make Bond into not-Bond” films.

On the other hand, a lot of people obviously loved Skyfall, and greatly appreciated the new direction that doesn’t rely on gadgets, hot women with goofy names, borderline silly henchmen, and/or anything else people immediately connect with the idea of a Bond film. Or, whatever.

At any rate, the film has a new teaser trailer, and »

Spectre Interview: Producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson

29 March 2015 10:47 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Over the past few days, I got to visit the Mexico City set of the next James Bond movie, Spectre. Directed by Sam Mendes (Skyfall) and starring Daniel Craig as Bond, everything I saw and learned during my set visit makes me extremely confident that the upcoming sequel will be something special. For more on the film, here’s a description of the awesome-sounding opening chase sequence that will be between twelve and fifteen minutes of screen time. The day after my set visit, I got to participate in group interview with Spectre producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. While they were tight lipped about revealing the secrets of Spectre, we got updates on the theme song, how they decided what would be in the teaser trailer, putting together the cast, the rumors that Spectre could have been a two-part movie, if James Bond could exist in a shared universe, »

Eon Productions, MGM and Sony Pictures have certainly kicked the promotion for Spectre off with a bang this week; so far we’ve seen the first trailer and a batch of images showing 007 in action in Mexico City, and now the official site has dropped another three stills, which we have for you here…

What did we learn from the Spectre teaser trailer?

28 March 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The first teaser trailer for James Bond 24 has been released, but what did it tell us about the upcoming movie, Spectre?

After letting the sky fall when it crum-balled to the tune of a billion dollars at the global box office, Spectre may be the most anticipated James Bond movie since the last one. Daniel Craig's fourth feature as 007 won't arrive in UK cinemas until October, but the response to the teaser trailer released over the weekend has been very positive.

Four is hardly a magic number for Bond actors. Sean Connery's fourth outing was the less-than-stellar Thunderball, Roger Moore's was the all-too-interstellar Moonraker and Pierce Brosnan closed out his four-movie tenure with the infamously poor Die Another Day.

That makes Craig the fourth actor to rack up four turns as Bond, and if you're superstitious about this sort of thing, maybe that's why this looks to be the combo breaker. »

Spectre: 007 Will Tangle With The Crime Syndicate In Teaser Trailer

27 March 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

The first teaser trailer for Spectre has arrived and it is very much a moody affair. It is limited in action but heavy in atmosphere. Just as the production has been mum on the plot details so is this trailer light on action. In fact it is mostly just a lot of people standing, including a brief glimpse of Bond Girl Monica Bellucci. But there is good old Christoph Waltz at the end, waiting for Bond in the shadows. A cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind Spectre.I am sure that the action will come...
