Rihanna linked with James Bond 24

8 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joining Daniel Craig in the next 007 movie? It might just be Rihanna, according to a new tabloid rumour.

Ah, the James Bond movie casting rumours. We've missed these. With production on the new 007 adventure set to begin in the next month or two, the only faces we know for definite returning are Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear and Naomie Harris. As for new names to the world of Bond? We're expecting announcements in due course, but they haven't been forthcoming yet.

Rumour of the day, then, is that Rihanna - last seen on the big screen in 2012's Battleship - is being lined up for a role.

It's come from a tabloid source, the Daily Mirror, so liberal doses of salt probably help in digesting this one. The Mirror, however, reports that she's been approached by the Bond team about taking a role in the new movie. »

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production now set to begin this December, Eon Productions has reportedly approached Grammy-winning pop star Rihanna for a cameo appearance in Bond 24.

Here's what an unidentified source told British tabloid The Sunday Mirror, claiming that the Barbados native is a huge fan of the James Bond franchise.

"Rihanna is a big fan of the Bond films and has always loved the idea of appearing in one. She didn't even need to think about it, she knows she wants to do it. She's really excited."

Rihanna made her feature film debut in the 2012 action-adventure Battleship. She also played herself in last year's comedy hit This Is the End and appeared in the documentaries Katy Perry: Part of Me and Bettie Page Reveals All. The actress-singer also lends her voice to DreamWorks Animation's Home, in theaters next March.

It's possible that Eon Productions may also want Rihanna to sing »

The Films of David Fincher: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

19 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

[With the upcoming release of his new film Gone Girl, I’m taking a look back at the work of director David Fincher.  These articles contain spoilers.] Up to this point in this series, I've mostly sided with Fincher, his decisions, and his thoughts on his movies.  But even by his own metric and intentions, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is almost a complete and utter failure.  I understand why Fincher would feel a kinship with Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara), but his reasons for making the movie—the prospect of an R-rated franchise and the relationship between Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) and Salander—are, respectively, superficial and underdeveloped.  Looking over the making-of documentary and his commentary track, I'm astonished at the gulf between Fincher's intentions and what the movie presents. Like with Zodiac, Fincher states he didn't want to make another serial killer movie, and I think in that regard, Dragon Tattoo holds to that promise.  But the movie also doesn't adhere to what Fincher envisioned.  On the commentary track he says, "it was really »

The Academy Celebrates The Opening of The Hollywood Costume Exhibition in Los Angeles

19 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

By Gary Salem and Michelle McCue

“What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. We ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen he’s become a different person.”

Edith Head

On Monday, Wamg attended the press preview for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building.

Taking five years to create, this exhibition is the kickoff for the whole Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.

Emphasizing how costumes are so important in creating characters, this one-of-a-kind exhibition comes with its own film score, enhanced with dazzling animations and screenplay excerpts.

David Arnold: 'I'd go back to James Bond in a heartbeat'

29 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

While no-one can touch John Barry at the top of the James Bond music pyramid, the only person that even comes close is David Arnold.

Arnold scored five James Bond films, from 1997's Tomorrow Never Dies to 2008's Quantum of Solace, but was replaced for Skyfall by Sam Mendes's usual music man Thomas Newman.

James Bond will return. So will Sam Mendes. But will Arnold be back in the studio filling in the gaps between what he calls "the explosions and the car squeals and the gear changes and the punctures"?

Ahead of his Bose Universal Conductor live immersive collaboration with Ella Eyre, Digital Spy caught up with the composer, and when we finished grilling him on all things Doctor Who, we got round to 007.

"I always said that I'd go back if they asked me," Arnold said when we brought up the inevitable.

Rumour has is that Robert Downey Jr. will say goodbye to the character of Tony Stark after just two more movies, the first of which is next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, followed by a third Avengers film expected in 2017/2018.

50 bizarre examples of movie tie-ins and merchandise

25 September 2014 12:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Movie merchandise is big business. But some people will try and slap the name of The Avengers or Batman on anything...

Cool film stuff can be almost as fun as actually going to the movies. Think of a Batman cape, an Arnold Schwarzenegger action figure, or Goldeneye on the N64. Hell, the merchandising can often be more enjoyable than the actual film – remember how much fun the first few months of 1999 were before Star Wars: The Phantom Menace was actually released?

Yet, in the chase to make a quick buck out of devoted fans, some... let's just say less relevant, movie merchandise is churned out and flogged to the public.

Here then are 50 of the strangest (not ranked in order!) – expect action figures of obscure henchmen, 16-carat gold Twilight jewellery and some truly vomit-inducing burgers…

9 mind-blowing movie fan theories on Joker, James Bond and more

23 September 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The best movies leave you thinking about them long after the end credits roll. Some films marinate in the mind more than others, spawning fanciful theories and intriguing 'what ifs' from their dedicated fans.

Is James Bond really just one man? Do the Pixar films exist in a shared universe? And just how did Heath Ledger's Joker get those scars? We look at 9 mind-blowing movie fan theories below...

Heath Ledger's Joker is a war veteran

The Joker appears in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight seemingly out of the blue, an agent of destruction hell-bent on reeking havoc across Gotham. Unlike Jack Nicholson's Jack Napier, we never get to see a backstory for Heath Ledger's incarnation play out.

The Joker himself offers up two contrasting "wanna know how I got these scars?" stories so we can never truly trust the Clown Prince of Crime's explanation. One »

Clive Owen: 'I was never offered James Bond role'

23 September 2014 1:28 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Clive Owen has said that he was never offered the role of James Bond, despite being heavily linked to the series for several years.

The Knick star suggested that it was his role in crime thriller Croupier that helped kick-start his career and put him in people's minds for 007.

"If I hadn't worn that tux in Croupier, I'd still be begging for the parts on cop shows Robson Green turned down!" he told The Express.

Owen was rumoured for the Bond role prior to Daniel Craig's casting in Casino Royale, but reports at the time said that he was turned down after demanding box office profit points in his contract.

"It's easy to keep saying no to a role you're not being offered," Owen added. "Am I going to be the next Sean Connery? No, I'll just be the next Clive Owen."

Goldfinger 50 years on: How the 1964 classic shaped the 007 films

22 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The James Bond series - based on Ian Fleming's spy novels - is one of cinema's biggest ever film franchises, thrilling fans now for over half a century.

1962's Dr No and the following year's From Russia with Love lay the groundwork, but it was with 1964's Goldfinger that the 007 movies became a true global phenomenon.

A 50th anniversary Blu-ray re-issue of the Sean Connery classic is available to buy from today (Monday, September 22). To mark the occasion, Digital Spy explores how Goldfinger shaped Bond as we know and love him.

1. The Extravagant Pre-Titles Sequence

The previous film, From Russia with Love, was in fact the first Bond to feature a pre-titles sequence. But that scene, which saw Robert Shaw's Red Grant stalk and kill a 007 impersonator, was short and simple - and didn't even feature the real Bond.

Goldfinger was the first film to take full advantage »

Film Review: ‘A Walk Among the Tombstones’ Solidifies Desire for Liam Neeson to Be Your Dad

21 September 2014 10:19 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – I don’t know about your dad, but mine – love him as I do – isn’t Jason Bourne, James Bond or Bryan Mills. At the age of 62, Liam Neeson somehow still kicks ass as Bryan Mills in “Taken” and fans everywhere love riding every minute of his butt-kicking thrill rides.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Denzel Washington, Daniel Craig and Matt Damon are certainly a close second for who your fantasy dad would be, but really the winner is Liam Neeson every time. And I don’t just mean for those of us with daddy issues.

Liam would play baseball or My Little Pony with you, teach you wise life lessons, make you laugh and send you on your merry way in life. All the while, he’d be protecting you in the shadows if ever enemies find reason to harm you. He’s scary to bad guys even without a gun as »
