Hard to believe: John Williams is not scoring Steven Spielberg's 'Bridge of Spies'

18 March 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For the first time in almost 30 years a Steven Spielberg film will not be scored by John Williams.  That was the sad news DreamWorks Studios tried to avoid making headlines with this morning with the announcement that Thomas Newman would compose the music for Spielberg's upcoming thriller "Bridge of Spies." According to a release from the studio through distributor Walt Disney Pictures, Williams work schedule "was interrupted and he was unavailable to score the film due to a minor health issue, now corrected."   The 83-year-old composer has enjoyed a remarkable career winning five Academy Awards including three Oscars for Spielberg films "E.T.," "Schindler's List" and "Jaws."  The duo most recently collaborated on 2013's "Lincoln" for which Williams also earned an Original Score nomination. Williams' last theatrical work was 2013's "The Book Thief" which was his 49th nomination. He has also won a remarkable 22 Grammy Awards. Williams is still expected to »

Composer Thomas Newman Replaces John Williams On Steven Spielberg's Bridge Of Spies

18 March 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Around the time the fourth Steven Spielberg/Tom Hanks team up, Bridge of Spies, received a title (after filming for a couple of weeks without one), we got word that  composer John Williams would be marking his twenty seventh collaboration with the director. Now word has reached us, as well as the new image found above, that Williams is off the project due to health issues, thankfully minor and now corrected. Twelve time Oscar nominee Thomas Newman ( has been announced as his replacement. Newman has an impressive track record, with The Shawshank Redemption, Finding Dory, Wall-e, and American Beauty (the beginning of his collaboration with director Sam Mendes, which continues with Spectre) all  under his belt, and should prove the perfect fit for the cold war thriller. This isn't the end of Spielberg and Williams working together though, with the pair teaming up again on the director's next project, The Bfg. »

Thomas Newman Replaces John Williams On Spielberg's Bridge Of Spies

18 March 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Only two Steven Spielberg features have not been scored by John Williams: The Color Purple (Quincy Jones) and Twilight Zone: The Movie (Jerry Goldsmith). Three, if you include Duel, although technically that's a TV movie. Now there's a third (or fourth, depending on your stance on the whole Duel thing) in the shape of upcoming espionage drama Bridge Of Spies. Due to "a minor health issue, now corrected," John Williams is no longer scoring the film.Perhaps to sweeten that epoch-interrupting news, the director has offered the world a glimpse at the film in the shape of this first-look still. Spielberg has instead filled the gap with Thomas Newman. He's a composer with an impressive CV in his own right, spanning everything from Pixar animations to Sam Mendes' dramatic fare, and is currently scoring a spy movie of a different stripe in Mendes's Spectre.As for the still, »

Daniel Craig Is James Bond In First Teaser Posters for Spectre

17 March 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Amid the trips to far-flung exotic locales, effortlessly beautiful women and more prestigious cars than you could ever want, Daniel Craig has found the time for a photo shoot. While the assembly of new snaps may appear as if Craig has ventured into catalog modelling, make no mistake. The selection of images, which you can check out in the gallery above, are actually a series of teaser posters for Spectre.

Aesthetically, the four posters don’t vary a great deal. Craig strikes the same pose and is superimposed over a different backdrop. He’s kitted out in a tight-fitting top (presumably to retain heat during those chilly mountaintop sequences… or something) and has a firm grasp of his service weapon.

Production on the Bond sequel has catapulted its cast and director Sam Mendes all across the globe. Extensive sequences have been shot in England, Italy and Switzerland, »

Daniel Craig Ditches James Bond’s Tux on First ‘Spectre’ Poster (Photo)

17 March 2015 10:21 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

James Bond goes casual on the first poster for the latest 007 film, “Spectre.” In a rare occurrence, Daniel Craig is seen front and center sans the British super spy’s signature tuxedo, wearing instead a turtleneck sweater and a gun clip. It’s fitting for a franchise relaunch that’s tended toward the grounded and gritty more than ever before. Sam Mendes is returning to direct “Spectre” after his success with “Skyfall” in 2012. Craig is reprising his role as the MI6 agent, and he’ll be joined by a supporting cast that includes new players Dave Bautista, Christoph Waltz, Monica Belluci and Lea. »

Daniel Craig’s 007 featured on new posters for Spectre

17 March 2015 10:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we had a teaser for a teaser poster, or ‘teaserception’ for the latest Bond film, Spectre. It’s just getting silly now.

Well now we have said poster(s), featuring a rather snazzy looking Daniel Craig…and nothing else. Here you go…

Are you suitably amazed? I’m getting a strong Live and Let Die feeling, with the jumper and holster. Lets hope the rest of the film isn’t the same.

What do you think?

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.

Spectre is set for release in the UK on October 23rd 2015 in the UK and November 6th 2015 in the States. The film sees Sam Mendes (Skyfall) directing Bond veterans Daniel Craig as James Bond, »

Daniel Craig is Armed & Fashionable on First 'Spectre' Teaser Poster

17 March 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We've been keeping up with the production of Spectre, the latest adventure for Daniel Craig as James Bond, with production diaries and more, straight from the set overseas. And even though the film doesn't arrive until this fall, Sony Pictures has revealed the first teaser poster for 007's next mission. It's nothing special, since it just shows Craig armed and looking dashing, but it's still pretty early in production, so they probably don't want to give anything else away. However, if you look at the lower right hand corner of the film, we do get confirmation that Spectre will be released on IMAX screens when it arrives in November. Here's the next teaser poster for Sam Mendes' Spectre from the official 007 Twitter: And here's a black and white variant for the Us version of this Spectre teaser poster as well: In addition, a few fans have noticed similarities to »

Spectre: the first poster lands

17 March 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here's the first poster for the next James Bond film, Spectre, starring Daniel Craig. Er, it's not too exciting though.

Yesterday, followers of the 007 Twitter feed will have been alerted to the fact that a teaser poster for the 24th James Bond film, Spectre, would be landing today. A teaser for a teaser poster, if you will.

Said Twitter feed told the truth. The poster has indeed landed, and it has a picture of Daniel Craig on it. Daniel Craig as if he's been realised in a computer game by the looks of it, but let's gloss over that for the minute.

Given that the film is just over seven months away from release, we wonder if this may build up to a first teaser trailer for the new film. If it does, though, expect said promo to give you as much information as this poster. That the film will »
