Sam Mendes Teases Details In New Spectre Video

27 February 2015 2:09 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The Spectre splurge continues to ride out this week. If getting a look at Dave Bautista as Mr. Hinx and a few other characters wasn’t enough, there’s also a brand new video blog from director Sam Mendes, who is back for seconds following his stunning effort with Skyfall.

Going behind the scenes of Bond’s top secret mission, Mendes slips a few interesting details on what we can expect with Spectre that may, or may not but probably will have Blofeld making an appearance. Returning for a film that ‘is entirely driven by Bond’ and tying to an important moment from his childhood.

Looking to be still picking up some important pieces from Skyfall, Spectre will also highlight Bond’s fresh to the field allies with a new M (Ralph Fiennes), a Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) that will do more than sit behind a desk, and a Q (Ben Whishaw »

Video Round-Up: The Walking Deceased, Behind-the-Scenes of New Bond Movie ‘Spectre’, Salem Season 2

26 February 2015 6:09 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We're back with another video round-up that should excite fans of The Walking Dead, James Bond, and Salem's John Alden. The first trailer for Arc Entertainment's The Walking Deceased, a horror comedy spoof of AMC's The Walking Dead and other living dead films like Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead, has been released, along with a new behind-the-scenes look at the 24th Bond film, Spectre, and another teaser for season two of Wgn America's Salem.

The Walking Deceased (slated for a March 20th release): "The Walking Deceased is a delightfully bloody addition to the pantheon of zombie-apocalypse spoofs. Lampooning every tried and true zombie meme. Join the Sheriff with his son, and a motley crew of survivors as they weather confrontations with zombies, meet up and then leave their tattered camp–a partially destroyed shopping mall. The group journeys to the supposed Safe Haven Ranch seeking shelter from the owners, »

You might have noticed that our cover star for the current issue of the magazine is one Daniel Craig as James Bond for his latest outing, Spectre. There’s a new video blog online with returning director Sam Mendes talking about why he chose to come back to Bond and what we can expect from his follow-up to Skyfall.According to Mendes, who at one point detached himself from the idea of making a second 007 film, he was lured back in by the story, which is driven by Craig’s Bond. It finds him on a mission to hunt down some very bad people, and we learn that with the new M (Ralph Fiennes), Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) backing him, he’s on a journey that will once again explore an aspect of his past. Oh, and “it’s about whether or not to pursue the life he’s always pursued, »

Spectre: new pictures, new behind the scenes video

26 February 2015 12:44 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A first look at Dave Bautista in the new James Bond film. Plus Sam Mendes on why he returned after Skyfall...

The fourth installment of the Daniel Craig as 007 era will be upon us at the end of the year with Spectre, and with Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty) returning to the helm of the series, we've good feelings about where this is heading.

Perhaps that is why in our first actual behind-the-scenes footage of Spectre, Eon Productions is comfortable enough to let Mendes walk us through where James Bond 24 is heading with the character. While speaking in the below video blog, Mendes explains a concept that we haven’t seen really explored since GoldenEye: Bond is now the veteran and M is the newbie with something to prove.

In many ways, I am detecting that Mendes and screenwriter John Logan are in several sneaky ways pulling from »

Vlog: Behind the scenes of Spectre with Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Léa Seydoux, and more!

26 February 2015 12:24 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Director Sam Mendes and the guys behind the next James Bond installment, Spectre, are taking advantage of the cold winter months by shooting in the mountains of Austria.

Daniel Craig – Mr. Bond himself – joined director Sam Mendes on set, and the cast and crew were kind enough to give fans an inside look behind Spectre. In the two below vlogs, Craig and Mendes are joined by 007’s new castmates, Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Léa Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Colour).

Naomi Harris, our Moneypenny as per Skyfall’s last reveal, makes a brief appearance as well. Ralph Fiennes – best known for Harry Potter or Schindler’s List, depending on your age – returns as M, taking over the reigns on MI6 from Judi DenchBen Whishaw, clad in a toque, parka, and stripped socks, also continues with his affable nerdy/hipster “thang” as our generation’s perfect Q. »

Sam Mendes Talks ‘Spectre’ In All-New Vlog

26 February 2015 11:58 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’m enjoying the different approach for the upcoming release of Bond 24 Spectre as they reveal just some behind-the-scenes stuff and now a great little interview with returning director Sam Mendes. We haven’t had a lot of specifics yet on the plot but Mendes here talks about the reasons he returned and why he felt it was right.

I don’t know about you but I’ve enjoyed most of the modern Bond films, Roger Moore onwards for me, and in recent years they’ve really upped their game as Skyfall was pretty darn impressive and Daniel Craig a great Bond.

Here’s your new Vlog or video blog if you’re using real words:

Spectre opens in the UK on 6th November. It co-stars Christoph Waltz, Monica Belluci, Dave Bautista, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, and Léa Seydoux. »

First look at Dave Bautista and Lea Seydoux in Spectre, plus new behind-the-scenes featurette

26 February 2015 11:37 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Empire has given us our first look at Dave Bautista’s (Guardians of the Galaxy) Mr. Hinx and Lea Seydoux’s Dr. Madeleine Swann (Blue Is the Warmest Color) from the upcoming Bond sequel Spectre with two new images from the hotly-anticipated film…

“When I came over to meet Sam [Mendes], I only asked two questions,” states Bautista. “I asked him if Mr. Hinx was a badass. He said, ‘Yes, he’s a badass.’ I said, ‘Well, is Mr. Hinx intelligent?’ He said, ‘Very.’ That’s what I like about Mr. Hinx. He’s very well-dressed and very well-mannered. I’m not just here to fight people. He has a sense of humour. He definitely knows what a metaphor is.”

“I don’t consider myself a Bond girl,” adds Seydoux. “I think I’m not really the stereotyped Bond girl. I feel quite different. You can’t be like, ‘Oh, James. »

New 'Spectre' Vlog Hints at What's Ahead for Bond

26 February 2015 11:31 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Director Sam Mendes chimes in on why he came back for a "Skyfall" sequel in a new vlog, explaining that "Spectre" is the second part of a story that continues to link James Bond's childhood to his profession. It's personal, which is always a priority for Daniel Craig, but now Bond possesses a certain wisdom to deal with danger beyond his talent as an assassin. Good thing, too, since he encounters Blofeld and his eponymous terrorist organization for the first time. In fact, Mendes says it's significant that Bond is now more seasoned than his new MI6 colleagues: M (Ralph Fiennes), Moneypenny (Naomi Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw). Reading between the lines, though, we can infer that there's a personal connection with Christoph Waltz's Franz Oberhauser, since Hans Oberhauser was Bond’s ski instructor and father figure in Ian Fleming’s "Octopussy" short story.  Meanwhile, Empire has a first »

Watch: Sam Mendes talks 'Spectre' in Behind-the-Scenes Video Blog

26 February 2015 9:38 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

So, I'm pretty excited to see Spectre. I know, it's still some 250-odd days until the movie actually hits theaters, but of all the blockbusters coming out this year, it is arguably the one I am most looking forward to -- yes, more than Avengers: Age of Ultron, and even more than Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Mission: Impossible 5, both of which I am really itching to see. I just love the Bond franchise, I think that's what it really comes down to, and with the cast and crew director Sam Mendes has assembled, well that's just icing on the cake for this cat. As Mendes tells in a new video blog from behind the scenes of Spectre, which you can check out at the bottom of the post, what it really comes down to for him is story; story is what brought Mendes back for a »
