Spectre Theme Song To Be Performed By Radiohead?

11 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though the lion’s share of speculation around which artist will perform the theme for upcoming James Bond movie Spectre has revolved around “Lights” chanteuse Ellie Goulding and “Stay With Me” crooner Sam Smith, an anonymous customer’s sizable bet on an out-of-left-field contender has caused one U.K. bookmaker to suspend betting entirely.

British band Radiohead is suddenly a favorite to tackle the Bond tune after an anonymous customer asked to put a £15,000 ($23,000) wager on the band. That’s a pretty massive bet, as well as one that suggests some inside knowledge of what’s going on behind closed doors with the track.

A spokesperson for bookmaker William Hill stated yesterday:

The first gamble of the day was Ellie Goulding and punters were backing her as if she already had the gig, but just as we were thinking of pulling the plug we had a load of bets for »

What if Pierce Brosnan came back as James Bond for Spectre? Here's your must-see 007 video of the day

16 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Many Bond fans felt a bit miffed when Pierce Brosnan was given his marching orders after Die Another Day.

Sure, his final 007 movie wasn't much cop - but it delivered decent box office returns and showed that he still had ammo left in his Walther Ppk.

8 coolest things you didn't spot in the Spectre trailer

22 best and worst Bond theme songs ranked

YouTube user The Unusual Suspect obviously has a lot of love for the fifth Bond, cutting together a fresh version of the Spectre trailer which replaces Daniel Craig with a grizzled Brosnan.

It works surprisingly well, with clips from Brosnan's recent films Survivor and November Man (plus a bit of Die Another Day) all weaving together into one seamless whole.

Those who prefer the Daniel Craig version of Spectre can watch the latest trailer below. The film will open in the UK on October 26 and November 6 in the Us. »

Spectre Theme Song Betting Closed After Massive, Anonymous Radiohead Wager

18 hours ago | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Remember those U.K.-based bookies we keep hearing about? They were the ones placing bets on who the new James Bond would be after Daniel Craig, naming Homeland.s Damian Lewis as the frontrunner. Well, these folks are now doing the same with who will eventually come to perform the theme song for Spectre . or, at least, they were. Betting has now been closed because someone dropped an insanely large amount of money in favor of Radiohead. THR says that a British bookie "suspended" its betting after an anonymous gambler dropped £15,000 (which translates to roughly $23,000) on Radiohead as the group that will record the next James Bond theme song. While only Sam Mendes knows at the moment who will sing the next Bond theme song, the bookies suggested that this type of action was enough to point to Radiohead as a new frontrunner even though the iconic rock outfit »

007 contenders for Spectre's theme song: Ellie Goulding, Sam Smith, Adele and the rest

27 July 2015 5:34 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Spectre director Sam Mendes says the latest Bond theme has already been recorded, but we're still none the wiser as to who'll be crooning over the film's opening credits.

8 coolest things you didn't spot in the Spectre trailer

22 best and worst Bond theme songs ranked

Ahead of the announcement of Spectre's theme song, we look at the contenders to follow in the footsteps of Shirley Bassey, Paul McCartney, Tina Turner et al.

1. Ellie Goulding

Why it could be them: No stranger to movie soundtracks, Goulding has lent tunes to everything from About Time to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Fifty Shades of Grey. Her ethereal voice would certainly add an interesting flavour to Spectre, and Sam Smith certainly seems to think she has it in the bag.

Most Bondian track: 'My Blood'

James Bond Returns in New Spectre Trailer

27 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Can we say that Daniel Craig incarnation of James Bond rivals Sean Connery’s at this point, or is that still considered blasphemy? Given that Skyfall (2012) is, at least until the release of Spectre, the most complete and entertaining Bond film ever produced, I wonder if we can’t mention the two actors in the same sentence without feeling the least bit guilty.

The new trailer for Spectre does very little to dissuade my enthusiasm for Craig and his Bond films (although Quantum of Solace (2008) was quite the follow-up to Casino Royale (2006) I was hoping for). The new film looks to continue the dark and menacing nature of these films, and I’m all for it; it’s a tone that works for Bond. Here’s hoping that the final film delivers the good that this trailer promises.

Can 'Star Wars' Find 'Guardians' Star Dave Bautista a Role?

24 July 2015 9:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There's no doubt about it. Guardians of the Galaxy turned WWE Superstar Dave Bautista into a bonadfide movie star. And it even landed him the coveted role of villain in the next James Bond movie Spectre. He'll follow that with the highly-anticipated Kickboxer reboot. So, where does he want to go from here? Speaking with IMDb, the pro-werstler-turned-actor desperately wants to be in one of the upcoming Star Wars movies. It doesn't matter if it's a spinoff or part of the new trilogy. And he isn't above stepping inside a mask or latex suit. He explains his biggest dream.

"[I want to] be in a freakin Star Wars film!!! Im 0-2 as of right now... Eventually they'll stick me in a Stormtrooper suit just to stop me from bugging them!"

There aren't too many more franchises bigger than the WWE, the Marvel Universe, and James Bond, so it's understandable why the Superstar would »

Anne Reid sex scene with Daniel Craig in The Mother was scary

24 July 2015 4:32 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Anne Reid wishes she'd ''gone for the sex more'' during a raunchy scene with Daniel Craig. The 80-year-old actress shared an intimate moment with the James Bond star in 2003 movie 'The Mother' and was so nervous about being a ''laughing stock'', she got drunk before filming the scene. In an interview with, she recalled: ''The night before I got drunk. It's not something I would leap to do again. ''Although if I did it again, I'd be much, much sexier. I'd really go for the sex much more. You don't want to look like a complete plonker do you? ''I thought I was going to be the laughing stock of every dining table in England. It was fine in the end, but it was very daunting, I felt like such an idiot.'' And Anne admitted the scene was especially ''weird'' to shoot because she didn't »

Tax Breaks Bringing Hollywood Productions Back to Italy

23 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The paparazzi have been busy this year chasing stars filming in the Eternal City, as Hollywood has rediscovered Italy, making the country — and Rome’s storied Cinecitta Studios — a hot destination for foreign shoots.

Competitive tax breaks, a great euro-to-dollar exchange rate, and Italy’s depth of crew and craftsmen recently lured Paramount’s “Zoolander 2” as well as MGM and Paramount’s “Ben-Hur” remake, marking the first time in at least a decade that Cinecitta has hosted two big Hollywood productions. Ron Howard’s “Inferno” and the next James Bond installment, “Spectre,” have also shot in Rome and other parts of Italy.

Growing its production sector could be a shot in the arm for the nation’s ailing economy  — after all, as former prime minister Giulio Andreotti famously said of an earlier epic film shoot, “ ‘Quo Vadis’ did more for Italy than the Marshall Plan.”

What Happened to Twitter? Everyone Is Raving Over the Spectre Trailer

22 July 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

There's a big problem on Twitter, and we need to address it. This morning, there was almost no cynicism to be found. Every day, we log on to Twitter knowing what to expect: Angry sentiments about the main grievance of the moment. Day in and day out, Twitter users are bitter and annoyed, and it's come to be an expected and comforting part of our day.  But not this time. When we opened up Twitter after the new Spectre trailer dropped, we expected to see all sorts of cranky grumblings about how desperate the new Bond movie is, or how Daniel Craig is lame, or the special effects are so fake. Basically we assumed that the response would be similar to that of the recent Suicide Squad or »

Watch 'Spectre' Trailer: James Bond Meets the Author of His Pain

22 July 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Judging from the explosive new "Spectre" trailer, the film not only continues the two-part "Skyfall" journey into James Bond's upbringing but also links the Daniel Craig era by proclaiming that Christoph Waltz's Franz Oberhauser represents a Machiavellian puppetmaster: "It's me, James, the author of all your pain," he sneers (wearing, incidentally, the signature Nehru jacket associated with Ernst Stavro Blofeld from the '60s). So isn't the cat pretty much out of the bag? No doubt, the trailer does a great job of touting what we expect from Bond as a whole and from Craig in particular: Thrilling action pieces (in cars, planes and trains); globe-trotting glam in Mexico City, Austria, Rome and Morocco; two gorgeous women (Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra, the widow of an assassin killed by Bond, and love interest Léa Seydoux as Dr. Madeleine Swann, a psychologist who can lead him to Oberhauser); a deadly henchman (Dave Bautista as Mr. »

Daniel Craig's James Bond Takes On Evil Christoph Waltz in the Spectre Trailer

Cue the Bond theme, because the Spectre trailer is here! Daniel Craig is back as our beloved blond James Bond in the 24th Bond movie, and the first real look has a lot of Craig looking sexy - which is a habit of his. There's as much action and shots of sexy women as you might expect, but the most exciting part is getting to see Christoph Waltz as the new villain. The movie comes out Nov. 6, so until then, enjoy this first look. Check out the teaser as well. »

Spectre Trailer Breakdown – Everything You Missed And Need To See

22 July 2015 7:32 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures/MGM

How do you top Skyfall? Bond 23 was nothing short of a masterwork; a beautiful, adrenaline-pumping ride that doubled as both a thrilling Bond adventure with the right mix of franchise reverence and clear new direction, and a dissection of what has made 007 such an enduring screen presence. The most definitive Bond movie this side of Goldfinger, any attempt to follow it, no matter how good, is doomed to pale in comparison.

Or maybe not. Judging from the brand new trailer for Spectre, it looks like Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig may have pulled off that difficult second (or, rather, twenty-fourth) album. Two and a half minutes pure joy, it’s an expertly produced advert for the latest 007 movie, giving more concrete details without actually offering up anything that could be called a spoiler (take note Marvel).

The film promises the same expanded scope of its predecessor, with »

New Spectre trailer premieres

22 July 2015 7:22 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

The first full trailer for 'Spectre' sees Christoph Waltz introduce himself as ''the author'' of James Bond's ''pain''. The much-hyped teaser - the second to have been released since the movie's launch in December - shows the Oscar-winning star emerge as Bond's nemesis and the iconic secret agent, played by Daniel Craig, involved in a steamy love scene with Italian actress Monica Bellucci. The fast-paced clip also includes a dramatic action scene with Léa Seydoux, while British stars Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw reprise their roles as the rebooted Moneypenny and Q respectively. What's more, the trailer features brief appearances from Andrew Scott as Max Denbigh, the new head of the Centre for National Security, Ralph Fiennes as M and Dave Bautista, who's been cast in the role of Mr. Hinx. Earlier this month, 'Spectre' director Sam Mendes revealed he has no plans to helm another movie in the Bond franchise, »
