Daniel Craig will be joined by Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan for a limited period from October 17. The waxworks will then go on to other Madame Tussauds locations around the world.

Each of the figures will be wearing a classic 007 suit by Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming.

Sam Mendes Will Focus On Origins Of “How Bond Became Bond” With Spectre

17 August 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having stood the test of time for over 60 years, few characters in popular culture can hold a candle to James Bond. Ian Fleming’s indelible super-spy made his bow in the original Casino Royale back in ’53 and since then, his globe-trotting adventures have entertained readers and viewers for generations. Then again, with so many directors, novelists and actors adding their own idiosyncrasies to the 00 agent, his origin story has been left largely unexplored, and that’s precisely the area that Sam Mendes will explore in this year’s Spectre – albeit it with a twist.

Per Entertainment Weekly, the director touched upon his approach to Bond’s legacy, and how he believes Skyfall – the most recent in the longrunning series and the only one to grace $1 billion – left audiences at the beginning of the rebooted story.

“Bond has been rebooted at the end of the movie. This is only the beginning »

Sam Mendes says “Bond has been rebooted” for Spectre

15 August 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from the latest featurette focussing on the women of Spectre [watch it here], Entertainment Weekly caught up with director Sam Mendes, who suggested that Bond “has been rebooted” with Skyfall, and the upcoming 24th adventure will explore 007’s origin story.

“Bond has been rebooted at the end of the movie,” states Mendes. “This is only the beginning of the story. The Bond creation myth never happened. I felt there was an opportunity there: What made him? And who were the people who affected him along the way? You’re sort of telling the story backwards of how Bond became Bond.”

Spanish Producer Mate Cantero Dies

14 August 2015 2:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mate Cantero, a pioneering woman producer who saw her native Spain as part of a larger world, died Monday Aug.11 after a long illness battling cancer. She was 54.

Cantero got her first break making “Veraz” with French producer-distributor Stephane Sorlat, founder of Bac Films with Jean Labadie. She would go on to create Mate Productions with Sorlat in 1992, then become his wife in a marriage the lasted into the next decade.

After years of seemingly endemic crisis, the Spanish film industry found some kind of financial stability from the mid-‘90s, which allowed Spanish producers to attempt more ambitious films at home or step up to the table with equity in international co-productions.

From 1996, though based out of Madrid, living with her family in the leafy suburb, Cantero would with Sorlat make her best-know, biggest – and among them most successful – productions, Notably, these were with Bigas Luna (1997’s “The Chambermaid on the Titanic, »

Monica Bellucci is a seductive on-screen presence in new movie 'Spectre'

14 August 2015 1:08 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Sam Mendes thinks Monica Bellucci is an ''incredibly seductive'' on-screen presence in 'Spectre'. The acclaimed director - who's returned to the Bond franchise after helming the 2012 hit 'Skyfall' - has revealed he's delighted to have cast Monica, 50, and Léa Seydoux as the secret agent's love interests in the eagerly-awaited new movie. He shared: ''In 'Spectre', the two women he hooks up with both have great mystery. ''Both have depths and for that you need fantastic actresses and I just thought Monica Bulluci. ''You know, it makes sense in the story, makes sense with the ages of the characters we're dealing with. She's an incredibly seductive presence, in life and in the movie, and I'm thrilled she's in it.'' Meanwhile, Monica revealed her excitement at securing a starring role in the legendary franchise.

'Spectre' Video: Meet Bond Women Léa Seydoux and Monica Bellucci

13 August 2015 10:02 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

James Bond has always been a predator and protector of women, and although Daniel Craig's 007 has the worst track record when it comes to saving the ladies, he has ample opportunity to turn it around in "Spectre," where he hooks up with Léa Seydoux's Dr. Madeleine Swann and Monica Bellucci's Lucia Sciarra. The new vlog introduces Swann and Sciarra as polar opposites: an icy blond and fiery Italian, both with secrets and links to Spectre, the ubiquitous terrorist organization that Bond tries to infiltrate. Swann's a psychologist working at a private medical clinic in the Austrian Alps (a nod to "On Her Majesty's Secret Service," no doubt). She's intelligent, sensitive and detached (there's a clue to her identity in the latest trailer). Read More: Who Will Be the Next James Bond?

Spectre Vlog Showcases The New Women In Bond’s Life

13 August 2015 9:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Ian West/Pa Wire

With the release of Spectre little more than two months away, Eon Picture, Sony and MGM have dropped a new Vlog, to help better acquaint you with the film’s female contingent.

Check it out below.

The Vlog gives both Lea Seydoux and Monica Bellucci a chance to gush about the franchise and their collaborators, without giving too much away concerning their roles in Spectre’s sure-to-be-twisty framework.

A good Bond girl is a key part of any good Bond outing, as some of Daniel Craig’s past credits will attest. Eva Green was an absolute scene-stealer in Casino Royale, whilst the disappointing Quantum of Solace can chalk-up Olga Kurylenko’s flat turn as one of its critical flaws.

Seydoux and Bellucci certainly emanate the ethereal, distrusting beauty that Bond girls are famed for, but whether they can match the complexity of an Eva Green is another matter. »

While moviegoers continue to deliberate on exactly who will be singing the film’s main theme song, MGM and Sony have peeled back the curtain on a new Spectre featurette, one which spotlights the film’s new female recruits.

Narrated by Monica Bellucci and the award-winning Léa Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Color), here the newcomers offer up new information relating to their respective characters following their formal introduction some months ago. Up first is Bellucci’s Lucia Sciarra, who is on board to play “an Italian widow with secrets. Her mafioso husband is killed and she risks the same thing happening to her.” At 50 years of age, Bellucci is bringing a certain tenacity and maturity to her role in Spectre, with director Sam Mendes adding that the actress has that “certain amount of life experience and maturity, and she’s the whole package, really.”
