Roger Moore Strikes a Familiar Pose as James Bond

The roguish Moore portrayed Britain’s most famous spy with a air of sophistication and humor, eschewing the harder edge that the first Bond, Sean Connery, had established. From the first film, “Live and Let Die” (1972) to 13 years later with “A View to a Kill,” Moore defined Bond for a generation of 1970s and ‘80s filmgoers.

In celebration of the life of Sir Roger Moore, and to benefit Unicef, there will be a double feature screening of The Spy Who Loved Me and For Your Eyes Only at select AMC Theatres on May 31st at 6pm and June 4th at 2pm. For a list of participating theaters, go Here (the only St. Louis AMC Theater participating is The AMC Chesterfield 14)
The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)
The Spy Who Loved Me sports a labyrinthine story involving outer-space extortion. The leading lady is sexy Russian secret agent Barbara Bach, who joins forces with Bond to foil yet another megalomaniacal villain, who plans to threaten New York City with nuclear weaponry. Curt Jurgens stars as Stromberg, Richard Kiel costars as ‘Jaws’, and other Bond lovelies include Caroline Munro and Valerie Leon.
For Your Eyes Only (1981)
Roger Moore was back as Secret Agent 007 in For Your Eyes Only,
Princess Caroline‘s eldest daughter attended Monaco’s annual Bal de la Rose on Saturday (unescorted). For the event, Casiraghi, 30, wore a vintage black velvet dress, which several sharp-eyed royal watchers recognized: It was the exact number her mother previously wore to a high-profile Monaco event that she had attended alongside Rassam’s mother, Carole Bouquet, in December 2000.

Keiichi Suzuki's score informs how we meander through the landscapes filmed dream-like by Christopher Messina (Dear Renzo). Charlie (Anabelle LeMieux) arrives at a house in Maine where a pal from the past, Helen (Rosalie Lowe), has a job monitoring forest fires and where she also miraculously predicts shifts in global finance.
Harvey Keitel, Toni Collette, Rossy de Palma and Stanislas Mehrar have joined the cast of French director Amanda Sthers’s English-language debut Madame, a comedy-drama revolving around a housemaid asked to masquerade as a wealthy heiress by her employees.
The feature - produced by Paris-based Lgm in partnership with Studiocanal - will shoot in Paris for six weeks from today (July 20).
Collette and Keitel play wealthy American couple Anne and Bob who have recently set up home in Paris and decide to give a high-class dinner for a dozen distinguished diners.
The last-minute arrival of Bob’s son from his first marriage suddenly takes the number of guests to 13. The superstitious Anne asks housemaid Maria (played by de Palma) to change her uniform and pretend to be a wealthy Spanish friend.
In this guise, she is seated
While at the festival, we got the opportunity to speak with Emma Suarez, who plays the older version of Julieta. We discussed shooting chronologically, only meeting her co-star once on set, the wide range of inspirations for the film, what the film means to her, and much more. Check out the conversation below and our interview with Adriana Ugarte here.
Producers Aton Soumache and Dimitri Rassam of On Entertainment received Unifrance’s French Cinema Award at its annual Rendez-vous in Paris over the weekend in recognition of the global success of their recent production, Mark Osborne’s The Little Prince.
The $57m production has drawn more than 15 million spectators worldwide since its release last July, making it the most successful French-produced feature-length animation of all time, and has still to hit screens in the Us, where Paramount Pictures has set a March 18 launch. UK and Canada releases are due around the same time.
When Soumache and Rassam first approached Osborne about directing an animation adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic novella, the Kung Fu Panda director turned them down. The pair had
It was Scott’s fabled “1984” Apple ad — the epic spot in which hammer-thrower Anya Major blew up Big Brother during halftime of Super Bowl Xviii — that announced the arrival of the Macintosh computer and its mastermind, Jobs. While Boyle makes no appearance on the hostile Red Planet of Scott’s “The Martian,” Boyle never worked for Nasa. Scott, on the other hand, was a hugely successful and pervasive force in TV advertising, long before “The Duellists,” “Alien,” “Blade Runner” or any of the other pictures that mark his singular career in cinema.

You probably have never heard this before, but my favourite James Bond film of all time, For Your Eyes Only, was the first 007 film I ever saw. (Spookily, this is exactly the same reason that my Huffington Post doppelgänger likes the film.)
But I don’t love Roger Moore’s fourth Bond film for nostalgic reasons, or at least not completely. Every so often, the 007 franchise strips Bond of his gadgets and gives us a back to basics story where a more ruthless secret agent has only his wits to fall back on: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, The Living Daylights, Casino Royale and For Your Eyes Only are the best examples. Of these, For Your Eyes Only stands

After his adventure into space, James Bond comes back to Earth in a much more grounded and closer to reality mission in For Your Eyes Only. This film takes Bond back to the basics as he fights without the assistance of over-the-top gadgets and a renewed focus on his deadly skills in the trade. His mission is to track down a sunken British ship before anyone gets a hold of its secret defense system, one which could potentially turn British ships against each other.
While not based on any of the original novels in particular, For Your Eyes Only is a combination of two of Ian Fleming’s short Bond stories ‘Risico’ and ‘For Your Eyes Only’. Combining the plots works very well in creating a Cold War espionage tale. Parts of the film are slow,

In the past eight years, Rassam has succeeded in raising the financing for some of France’s biggest-budgeted English-language movies, such as “Upside Down” (estimated budget: $40 million) and the upcoming animated feature “The Little Prince” (budget: $77 million), directed by “Kung Fu Panda” co-helmer Mark Osborne with a voice cast that includes James Franco, Marion Cotillard and Rachel McAdams.
Rassam, who launched On Entertainment with his longtime associate Aton Soumache in January, is prepping a move to L.A. in March. “I already travel there 10 to 12 times a year, and I’m now really looking
Wild Bunch has picked up sales on controversial Russia director Nikita Mikhalkov’s ambitious period drama Sunstroke,which it will launch internationally at the Afm.
“It’s a big budget, epic love story as only Mikhalkov knows how to deliver set just as the Russian revolution gains pace and the old Imperial era is destroyed forever,” said Wild Bunch sales chief Vincent Maraval.
The film revolves around a Tsarist soldier, awaiting his fate in a Bolsheviks-run prison camp, who recalls a short, passionate affair he once had with a beautiful and enigmatic married woman.
It is an adaptation of a 1927 novel by celebrated Nobel Prize-winning Russian novelist Ivan Bunin, written while he was living in exile in Paris.
Sunstroke was released in Russia at the beginning of October, after controversial premieres in the contested Crimean cities of Sevastopol and Simferopol in September
The move comes as BossaNova, whose film production is spearheaded by Denise Gomes and Paula Cosenza, unveils Chico Teixeira anticipated “Alice’s House” follow-up, “Absence,” which world premieres Saturday in Rio’s de Janeiro’s Fest centerpiece Premiere Brasil competition.

Why We're In: As Adam and Eve, Hiddles is the mopey yin to Swinton's yang. The costumes and production design are to die (or live forever) for. John Hurt, Mia Wasikowska, and Jeffrey Wright shine in smaller roles. In a word, it's gorgeous.

"Y Tu Mama También (Criterion)"
What's It About? Alfonso Cuarón's road trip romance features star-making performances by Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna, who play two young dudes who both become infatuated with an older woman. Beautiful, sexy, and sad.
Why We're In: Now when
While the novel and Polanksi film greatly succeeded at giving their readers/viewers a sense of building tension and one hell of a payoff, the 2014 version almost instantly seems as if it doesn’t know what type of film it wants to be. Part melodrama, part horror film, Rosemary’S Baby (2014) immediately does what a lot of films have to wait for at least quarter of their running time to do: lose its audience.
