Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »

If the 24th installment in the James Bond franchise has nothing else, Spectre promises to have one heck of a car chase. The Sam Mendes directed 007 adventure is continuing to shoot in Rome as we speak. New set video has arrived from the bank of Tiber, where Bond's new silver Aston Martin went head to head with an orange Jaguar.
This latest video comes courtesy of the AP Wire. And it seems we're promised one of the greatest vehicular action sequences of 2015. In Spectre, a cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. 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. This stands for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion, which is a global terrorist organization led by villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld. As of yet, »
Sir Roger Moore is to reprise his role as James Bond in a sketch for Comic Relief. The 87-year-old actor is to join the current star of the spy films, Daniel Craig, in a ''special one-off sketch'' to be broadcast as part of Red Nose Day on March 13. Roger took to his Twitter page to reveal the exciting news, saying: ''I'll tell you a secret ... Daniel Craig is not the only 007 in the Comic Relief sketch. #Backasbond (sic).'' The 'Spy Who Loved Me' star confessed he is to reprise his role as the British secret agent after it was reported »
The man who made a splash with a gritty reboot of Power Rangers wasted no time bringing us his next "Bootleg" feature. Adi Shankar, whose Power/Rangers short film has gained more than 12 million views on YouTube (and sparked a legal kerfuffle along the way), has released James Bond: In Service of Nothing, which imagines how the Sean Connery version of 007 would adapt to modern life.
In Service of Nothing, written and directed by Tyler Gibb, is animated in a style that resembles a "motion storyboard." The first act of the film features a typical James Bond chase scene, replete with cool cars, gadgets, attractive European women, and nefarious baddies. The film then takes a dark turn as it focuses on Bond as a crotchety old retiree who is both disgusted with what he sees as a moral-free society and desperate to regain his former glory.
As he did with Power/Rangers, »

Happy birthday to Daniel Craig, who turns 47 on March 2. He's appeared in some 60 movies and TV shows over the past quarter-century, but no matter what else he ever does, he'll still be best known for the three of them in which he played James Bond. Make that four, since his next Agent 007 adventure, "Spectre," is due in November.
The celebration of Craig's birthday and his best-known role seemed a good enough excuse to ponder the Bond series, a franchise of 23 movies to date that have offered remarkably consistent entertainment over the past 53 years. Over all that time, the franchise has seen six stars play 007, along with dozens of Bond girls and megalomaniacal villains, many groundbreaking action sequences, and countless diabolically clever spy gadgets, but it's also been controlled by just one family of producers, the Broccolis. Give them credit -- along with the blueprint laid out by 007 creator Ian Fleming »

Daniel Craig suffered a bump to the forehead on the set of 'Spectre'. The 'Skyfall' actor, who plays James Bond in the spy films, suffered yet another injury while filming scenes for the upcoming latest instalment in the franchise when his character's Aston Martin hit a pothole in Rome, Italy. A source revealed: ''Everyone held their breath because it was a bit of a bump but he was given the all clear by the medical team.'' The 46-year-old hunk was shooting a night-time scene with new villain Dave Bautista, also 46, when the vehicle dipped into a crack in the road causing him to hit his head. The incident came just weeks after Craig - who was recently spotted flying into London wearing a flat cap ahead of his 47th birthday next week - injured his leg while filming in Austria while assistant director Terry Madden suffered multiple leg fractures »
Video game based movies have yet to be good, but some are less bad than others. Here is our list of the best movies based on video games so far.
In relation to books or plays, video games are a relatively new media from which to adapt a movie. As a result, filmmakers have yet to really understand what it takes to make a good video game based film. Unlike a book or play, there’s usually a limited character-based story from which a plot can be derived. Furthermore, as an adaptation of a video game, the film should at least attempt to recreate the feel and tone of the game. This typically means more action and emphasis on visuals than on characters or story. There’s only so much screen time in a feature length film, and finding that ideal balance between story and excitement is difficult to accomplish. »

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 group journeys to the supposed Safe Haven Ranch seeking shelter from the owners, »

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, »

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 »
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 Dench. Ben Whishaw, clad in a toque, parka, and stripped socks, also continues with his affable nerdy/hipster “thang” as our generation’s perfect Q. »

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:

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. »

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 »
