'Spectre' Producers on Blofeld, Idris Elba as 007, and Who's Singing the Theme Song

16 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Over the weekend, we were in Mexico City on the set of the next James Bond outing "Spectre." This film marks the fourth time that Daniel Craig has inhabited the role of 007 and the second collaboration between Craig and his "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes. During the last phase of our trip, we were offered a special treat: a roundtable sit down with the longtime shepherds of the James Bond franchise: producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. Broccoli is, of course, the daughter of 007 producer Albert "Cubby" Broccoli and is Wilson's step brother (Wilson wrote several of the 007 movies, including "The Living Daylights," which also partially took place in Mexico).

The trailer for "Spectre" having premiered just hours before, we had a lot of questions for the producing team (and surprisingly, they only refused to answer some). In our conversation, they teased the connection between "Skyfall" and "Spectre" (and to »

Play-By-Play Breakdown Of Spectre’s Opening Sequence Appears Online

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

We’ve seen the alpine behind-the-scene images, not to mention elusive snippets and the rather excellent first trailer, but now, the Spectre tide of excitement has shifted toward the spy thriller’s opening sequence.

First picked up by Collider, the outlet spoke to one of the unit publicists on set, who offered up a play-by-play breakdown of the explosive, ambitious scene. Boasting an incredible amount of extras — over 1,000, in fact — not to mention a helicopter and a high-octane chase, the segment certainly appears to boast all of the wonderful ingredients that make-up a Bond opener, and it’s said that this dazzling snippet in particular will clock in at around 12 minutes in length.

Daniel Craig will reprise his role as the 00 agent for the fourth consecutive time, and Spectre‘s cast will be rounded out by Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, Lea Seydoux and, more recently, »

Spectre Teaser Trailer Pushes Continuation Of Bond Psychology

21 hours ago | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Spectre is likely to be as divisive as Skyfall when it comes to long-time James Bond fans, and, speaking as one, I find it difficult to look forward to the release. I’m not sure the new teaser trailer is helping me.

Frankly, after Sam Mendes announced he wasn’t going to do another Bond film, a lot of people breathed a sigh of relief. If you want to make a film that isn’t a Bond film, go ahead, but don’t make more “let’s make Bond into not-Bond” films.

On the other hand, a lot of people obviously loved Skyfall, and greatly appreciated the new direction that doesn’t rely on gadgets, hot women with goofy names, borderline silly henchmen, and/or anything else people immediately connect with the idea of a Bond film. Or, whatever.

At any rate, the film has a new teaser trailer, and »

Spectre: New opening sequence in Mexico set to be 'biggest ever done' for Bond film

22 hours ago | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

He’s shot a man dead mid-sentence and beaten another to death in a bathroom in Prague; dodged bullets in a vehicle-crunching car chase in Siena; and crashed a car into Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar before riding over rooftops in a tense motorcycle chase, leaping onto a speeding train, and being shot mid-fight on top of the train causing him to fall to what appears to be his untimely death to the river below – all before the titles roll. And that’s just Daniel Craig’s Bond. »

Spectre Interview: Producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson

29 March 2015 10:47 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Over the past few days, I got to visit the Mexico City set of the next James Bond movie, Spectre. Directed by Sam Mendes (Skyfall) and starring Daniel Craig as Bond, everything I saw and learned during my set visit makes me extremely confident that the upcoming sequel will be something special. For more on the film, here’s a description of the awesome-sounding opening chase sequence that will be between twelve and fifteen minutes of screen time. The day after my set visit, I got to participate in group interview with Spectre producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. While they were tight lipped about revealing the secrets of Spectre, we got updates on the theme song, how they decided what would be in the teaser trailer, putting together the cast, the rumors that Spectre could have been a two-part movie, if James Bond could exist in a shared universe, »

Roger Moore Backtracks After Suggesting Idris Elba Not ‘English-English’ Enough to Play Bond

29 March 2015 12:22 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Roger Moore had some explaining to do after laughing off the idea that black actor Idris Elba could play James Bond. “An interview I gave to Paris Match implies I said something racist about Idris Elba,” Moore tweeted Saturday night. “That is simply untrue. #Lost in translation.” Moore, who played the super spy in seven films between 1973 and 1985, was asked by the French magazine what he thought about the buzz suggesting that Elba might play 007 in an upcoming installment of the film franchise.

11 Major Things We Learned From The Set Of Spectre, The New James Bond Movie

29 March 2015 9:42 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The pressure is high. Sam Mendes is on his fourth day of shooting Spectre in Mexico City when press arrived on the set, and rain was derailing the day. The crew already shot earlier sequences involving Daniel Craig.s 007, Stephanie Sigman.s Estrella, a fierce explosion and an on-foot chase sequence.

What did we learn from the Spectre teaser trailer?

28 March 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The first teaser trailer for James Bond 24 has been released, but what did it tell us about the upcoming movie, Spectre?

After letting the sky fall when it crum-balled to the tune of a billion dollars at the global box office, Spectre may be the most anticipated James Bond movie since the last one. Daniel Craig's fourth feature as 007 won't arrive in UK cinemas until October, but the response to the teaser trailer released over the weekend has been very positive.

Four is hardly a magic number for Bond actors. Sean Connery's fourth outing was the less-than-stellar Thunderball, Roger Moore's was the all-too-interstellar Moonraker and Pierce Brosnan closed out his four-movie tenure with the infamously poor Die Another Day.

That makes Craig the fourth actor to rack up four turns as Bond, and if you're superstitious about this sort of thing, maybe that's why this looks to be the combo breaker. »

James Bond Spectre Trailer Pries into 007’s Past: Watch Now

28 March 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The first James Bond Spectre trailer made landfall on the Internet Friday to deliver a cryptic message about where 007's (Daniel Craig) next mission will take him, both emotionally and physically.

Spectre makes a concerted effort to build upon Skyfall by presenting James Bond with previously unknown documents found in the rubble of the former Skyfall manor that his parents once owned. This evidence, that may shed light onto what happened to Bond's real parents, takes him on an adventure into the Alps and into the crosshairs of a mysterious man named Oberhauser, played by the deliciously great villainous character actor Christolph Waltz.

As Bond battles in the snow and Mexico City, he eventually comes face-to-face with Oberhauser and he get our first shadowy glimpse at the film's villain, who many believe will turn out to be the classic Bond villain Blofeld. If he isn't Blofeld then why call the film Spectre, »

Idris Elba Up For Lead Antagonist In ‘Star Trek 3′

28 March 2015 10:50 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Idris Elba is easily one of our greatest and most versatile home-grown actors. The Luther star has proven this many times over the past decade, in roles ranging from a battle-hardened commander in Pacific Rim, to South African President Nelson Mandela.

Of course, this has undoubtedly put the London-born actor in extremely high demand, with rumours even placing him as Daniel Craig’s future Bond successor. Now, it has been revealed that Elba has entered early talks to play the lead baddie in Justin Lin’s Star Trek 3. Previous rumours had placed Bryan Cranston as the newest adversary for Kirk and his crew, however it is unknown if he was up for the same role, or merely that talks have now broken down.

While some may still be dissapointed that J.J. Abrams will no longer helm the film, Simon Pegg’s involvement as co-writer was definitely music to the ears of many die-hard fans. »

Daniel Craig’s Eyes Are Full of Secrets in the New James Bond Trailer for Spectre

28 March 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Spectre, which stands for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion — or basically evil — is the international crime syndicate at the center of Daniel Craig's fourth James Bond film. It looks like Craig's broodiest Bond yet as he roots around the past, uncovering secret octopus rings and twisting around like a plastic bag kite in a hurricane. Christoph Waltz steals the trailer from the shadows, as he is wont to do. »

Spectre trailer embraces Bond movies past: Who's lurking in the shadows?

28 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It took 44 years and 20 big screen outings before the Bond films even began to acknowledge its protagonist's origins, but if anything's going to define Daniel Craig's tenure as 007 it's the echoes from the character's past.

In the years between Roger Moore's departure and Timothy Dalton's arrival with The Living Daylights, screenwriters Richard Maibaum and Michael G Wilson explored the idea of taking Bond back to his roots with the Royal Navy and his induction into MI6.

Producer Cubby Broccoli, the man who masterminded Bond's cinematic success, dismissed this notion, arguing that audiences loved Ian Fleming's hero because he was bullet proof and fully formed.

How times change.

Since Daniel Craig's dramatic entrance in Casino Royale, Bond has been a vulnerable tortured soul, carrying this through in Quantum of Solace and Skyfall. The latter turned back the clock as 007 returned to his family home in Scotland, giving »

The Teaser For the Latest James Bond Movie Will Give You Goosebumps

28 March 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Cue up the Bond theme, because the Spectre teaser trailer is here! Daniel Craig is back as our beloved blond James Bond in the 24th Bond movie, and the first brief look has us convinced that we might need to rewatch Skyfall before seeing this new installment. The teaser leans heavily on what happened in the previous movie, but we do get a lot of Craig looking sexy (as is a habit of his) and a hint of the villain's voice (that's Christoph Waltz if you can't make it out). The movie comes out Nov. 6, and I'm sure we'll get more to go on before then. Until then, enjoy this first look. »
