Marvel Wants Mads Mikkelsen For 'Doctor Strange'

5 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Mads Mikkelsen is no stranger to blockbuster movies, having roughed up Daniel Craig is in his first Bond outing "Casino Royale," it's only recently that he's really become a major player. He'll be taking a role in the upcoming "Star Wars: Rogue One," and it seems Disney's other world-beating fantasy factory is interested in the actor. Variety reports that Marvel wants Mikkelsen to play the villain in "Doctor Strange." Early talks are underway for the actor to join Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor (holy geez, that cast!) in the movie playing an unknown antagonist to the titular sorcerer. Any guesses? (Ed Note: Yes! Baron Mordo.) Read More: Interview: Mads Mikkelsen On 'Hannibal' Season 2, 'The Salvation,' And The Scandinavian Filmmaking Renaissance    I'd wager Mikkelsen's participation will depend on his scheduling for "Star Wars: Rogue One," and whether or not he wants to sign a multi-picture. »

Daniel Craig Talks Wife Rachel Weisz: She's "Best" at Saying No to Fan Photos

26 August 2015 1:21 PM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Just some advice if you’re a fan of Daniel Craig’s— don’t sneak a photo of him if you’re at the same bar. The Skyfall star told DuJour magazine that he can’t stand when fans try to discreetly take his photo. “Bars are hard [for me to go to], but that’s more because of mobile phones. I’ll do autographs all day long, and I’ll even do a picture at the end of an evening. But if I’m being photographed all night long in a bar, that pisses me [...] »

A Gay 007 Probably Won't Happen

26 August 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One thing that's key to James Bond's character, especially in the films, is his seduction of women. That bed-hopping and chauvinistic attitude are a key element that very much defines the character, a coping mechanism to deal with the darkness of his job.

So it comes as a surprise that in a new interview with Details, former Bond star Pierce Brosnan was asked his opinion regarding changing the iconic secret agent's sexuality.

Discussing his happiness at the growing acceptance of the Lgbt community in his home country of Ireland, he was straight up asked if we would ever get to see a gay James Bond:

"Sure. Why not? Actually, I don't know how it would work. I don't think [producer] Barbara [Broccoli] would allow a gay Bond to happen in her lifetime. But it would certainly make for interesting viewing."

Pierce Brosnan thinks a gay James Bond would be "interesting" but doubts we'll see one in the near future

26 August 2015 1:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Pierce Brosnan has given his support to a gay James Bond, but has his doubts about it actually happening.

The Irish actor was talking about the legalisation of same-sex marriage in his homeland when the subject of a gay 007 came up.

Speaking to Details, his initial reply was: "Sure. Why not?"

However, he then added: "Actually, I don't know how it would work. I don't think Barbara [Broccoli, the James Bond producer] would allow a gay Bond to happen in her lifetime. But it would certainly make for interesting viewing."

Brosnan's comments follow a homoerotic scene in Skyfall, which saw Javier Bardem's Silva express sexual interest in Daniel Craig's Bond.

When Silva unbuttoned his shirt and made a sexually-charged remark, Bond responded: "What makes you think this is my first time?"

At the time, Craig said that Bond is definitely not gay, and that Bardem's villain would "f**k anything".

Meanwhile, Brosnan also »

Check Out This Excellent Daniel Craig Era James Bond Tribute Video

25 August 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You don't trust anyone, do you James?" It may be a bit too early to be posting a tribute to the Daniel Craig era of James Bond movies, considering we're still in the midst of it, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy one anyway. YouTube user Steven Thomas has edited together an excellent five minute tribute to Daniel Craig as Agent 007 in anticipation of his fourth movie coming up, Spectre, directed by Sam Mendes arriving in theaters this November. Roger Moore made seven Bond movies, Sean Connery made six (not counting Never Say Never Again), so Craig has a few to go to match them. I'm very excited for Spectre and I'm hoping it's as good as if not better than Skyfall. In the meantime, watch this 007 tribute in full below. Description from YouTube: "Relive James Bond's movies incarnated by Daniel Craig. Since Casino Royale to Spectre. James Bond »

Lea Seydoux Lands 'Bella Donna Boudreaux' Role In Gambit

24 August 2015 4:08 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to Deadline, Lea Seydoux has been offered the role of Belladonna Boudreaux in the Rupert Wyatt directed X-Men spinoff, Gambit, next to Channing Tatum in the title role. Seydoux, Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road), and Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) were all reportedly in contention, but when the latter dropped out to take a lead role in The Girl On The Train it became a two horse race, which the French actress evidently won. Bella Boudreax starts out as Remy LeBeau's (Tatum) childhood sweetheart, but the two later become enemies when she takes over from her father as the leader of the Assassin's Guild, and Remy heads up the Thieve's Guild. Seydoux seemed to be the fan-favourite choice for this role, so expect some happy fans! Audiencs will bext see her opposote Daniel Craig in Spectre. »

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.”

"Spectre" To Explore Bond Creation Myth

14 August 2015 6:11 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With director Sam Mendes' second and actor Daniel Craig's fourth outing with James Bond set to hit cinemas this Fall, a new quote about "Spectre" has emerged in a new interview with Mendes for EW.

Mendes was asked about how his previous Bond film "Skyfall" connects to the new one, and he indicated that his aim with the new one was to tell a kind of retroactive origin story:

"Bond has been rebooted at the end of ["Skyfall"]. 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. A lot of the film is a celebration of what it is to be Bond, but it's not retro. Hopefully it's not just classic Bond but a classic thriller. »

Simon Pegg played 'priceless' behind-the-scenes role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

14 August 2015 5:04 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We all saw Simon Pegg in that recent behind-the-scenes Star Wars trailer, but while we still have no idea who he'll be in front of the camera, we now know that he played a priceless role behind it.

Speaking to EW, Jj Abrams said that Pegg acted as a soundboard for ideas and dished out sagelike advice.

Abrams said: "I will say this in terms of Simon: while he won't be recognisable in the movie, in all honesty, his role in this - not the performance or the character - but his support and friendship has been massively important and helpful in the process.

"He was a wonderful partner in crime to kick the story around and ask questions and come up with ideas, and he was an incredibly helpful part of the process for all of us. I'm very grateful.

Spectre Will Be James Bond's Origin Story

14 August 2015 3:19 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With the release of Casino Royale, and Daniel Craig stepping into his shoes, we were all under the impression that James Bond was taken back to the beginning and we saw how he became the suave super spy we all know and love, albeit a hell of a lot darker. But then Skyfall came along and turned the clock back somewhat, skewing more old school than Craig’s first two turns as Bond, almost as if the Bond reboot was getting rebooted itself. Now, speaking to Entertainment Weekly, director Sam Mendes confirmed our suspicions, saying “Bond has been rebooted at the end of the movie. This is only the beginning of the story.” So, this puts Spectre in the position of being an origin story of sorts, which may have a few people scratching their heads. Let Mendes explain it to you: “ The Bond creation myth never happened. I felt »

'Star Wars 7' Got More Than a Cameo from Simon Pegg

14 August 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many were disappointed when it was confirmed that director J.J. Abrams wasn't showing any footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens at Comic-Con last month. Those same fans were likely delighted, though, by the behind-the-scenes video that debuted during the panel, which confirmed, among other things, that Simon Pegg does have an on-screen role. During a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, J.J. Abrams wouldn't say exactly what the actor's role is, but he did confirm that Simon Pegg was part of his behind-the-scenes team that helped him hash out the story.

"I will say this in terms of Simon: while he won't be recognizable in the movie, in all honesty, his role in this - not the performance or the character - but his support and friendship has been massively important and helpful in the process.

Simon Pegg’s Role In Star Wars: The Force Awakens Is Bigger Than You Think

14 August 2015 12:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As a self-proclaimed superfan, Spaced and The World‘s End star Simon Pegg has been vocal in the past about his desire to one day be involved in a Star Wars project. Imagine his delight, then, when he’s cast in J.J. Abrams’ winter blockbuster, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But as the director reveals in an interview with Entertainment Weekly – the undisputed bastion of all things Star Wars in recent days – Pegg’s role in the film is much bigger than we first imagined.

Rather than simply embodying an unknown alien, the fan-favorite Brit’s role expanded beyond the camera, too, with Abrams revealing that he would frequently assist in the creative process. Yes, the director didn’t delve into the specifics of Pegg’s alien in question, but it’s heartening to hear that his contribution to the much-anticipated sequel wasn’t limited to a passing – if unrecognizable – cameo. »
