Over the course of director Matthew Vaughn‘s career his love for James Bond has rang loud and clear. In Vaughn’s debut feature, Layer Cake, the suave anti-hero, Xxxx (Daniel Craig), wields an old-fashioned gun with an ultra-cool pose that, for anyone who saw the film before Casino Royale, made Craig seem like an obvious contender for Bond. In the audio commentary for Layer Cake Vaughn mentions how Xxxx, during that scene, “wants to be Bond.” Not only does Xxxx want to be Bond, but Matthew Vaughn clearly wants — or wanted — to direct Bond. Now Vaughn has gotten his way by making a film that’s about as close one can get to Ian Fleming’s English spy. With Kingsman: The Secret Service, Vaughn has basically directed his own Bond picture, except without any self-seriousness, an anguished hero, or other modern Bond staples. Mark Millar‘s graphic novel, adapted by Vaughn and Jane Goldman, brings »

From the very moment that Christoph Waltz was rumored to be involved in Sam Mendes’ Spectre, many had assumed that the celebrated actor would take on the role of one Ernst Stavro Blofeld — a supervillain held up as James Bond’s true archnemesis. However, when Mendes formally revealed the 24th installment in the long-running franchise a fortnight ago, it turned out that Waltz’s character was instead named Oberhauser. Still, that hasn’t quelled those Blofeld rumors.
When asked the question by Collider at a press event for Big Eyes — Tim Burton’s eclectic period drama — the Oscar winning actor ruled out the possibility of Blofeld’s involvement as the head of Spectre…or did he?
“No. No. It’s more interesting than that,” Waltz said.
It’s hardly one to stop the presses, but Waltz’s quote does bring up some intriguing possibilities. Could it be that Mendes and »

However, during the official casting announcement, it was revealed that Waltz will play the character Oberhauser who was Bond’s mentor in the Ian Fleming novels. Stil,l, fans are still not buying this and believe this is all misdirection from the fact Waltz will play Blofeld.
In an interview with Collider whilst promoting his latest movie Big Eyes, Waltz was asked if he was playing the head of Spectre in the latest Bond film, to which he responded: “No. No. It’s more interesting than that.”
Check out his reaction to the question below…
Do you think Waltz is telling the truth? Let us know…

Belvedere Vodka has announced a collaboration with new James Bond movie Spectre.
The company will release two limited edition bottles in celebration of the company's partnership with the upcoming film.
Belvedere's Silver Sabre bottles will also feature a new 007 twist as part of the campaign, which will be launched in February 2015.
Professor James Chapman, author of the cultural history of James Bond Licence to Thrill, said: "Bond's drinking habits have always been a central aspect of the James Bond lifestyle.
"Fleming's Bond famously invented the 'Vesper' martini in Casino Royale, and the vodka martini was there for special occasions such as his dinner at M's club Blades (Moonraker) and his sumptuous dinner with American millionaire Mr Du Pont (Goldfinger). And of course, a world-class super villain such as Dr No would not dream of serving anything else.

Spectre started filming last week, and is officially underway with telling the next chapter in the James Bond's modern franchise reboot. Impressively, we're pleased to announce that we have the first video of filming, courtesy of The Daily Mail. You can watch the clip below. Video removed YouTube User Daily Videos re-posted the video that shows Daniel Craig and co-star Rory Kinnear riding a patrol boat on the Thames River in front of the MI6 building, with two armored drivers at the helm. Throughout the video, it looks like there's pieces of dialogue being filmed and outtakes that show Craig and Kinnear goofing off with the drivers between takes. So far, no action looks to be taking place in this scene, so it's to be assumed that this might be a sequence before Bond's official briefing on the mission ahead of him in Spectre. So what does this mean for »
Daniel Craig has been spotted on the set of the new James Bond film Spectre. We have a video that features Craig and Rory Kinnear riding a river boat along the river Thames in England. Kinnear plays MI6 Chief of Staff Bill Tanner. It's so good to see Craig back as Bond, and I'm really excited about this sequel.
A few days ago, the full script leaked on the Internet for the movie, but I'm avoiding it at all costs. I want this movie to be an entertaining movie going experience for me. I'm a big Bond fan, and I just don't want to know the full story until I see it.
As of right know, all I know about the film's plot is from the official synopsis that was released:
A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M »

The filming of the next James Bond movie, Spectre, is already full steam ahead, following last week's behind-the-scenes shot and the recent announcement of the title and cast. We have the first shots of Daniel Craig and a costar shooting scenes on the film, and surprise, surprise: Craig looks superhot all bundled up. This is after the news that the movie's script was leaked in the massive Sony hack, but Craig and his baby blues appear completely unscathed. »
The Daily Mail has a series of photos showing Daniel Craig on the Thames en route to the real MI6 HQ to film sequences for the new 007 film "Spectre". Craig appears to be having a ball riding a high speed vessel in the company of his co-star Rory Kinnear, who plays the role of fellow agent Bill Tanner.
The article also reveals that, in the wake of the devastating Sony hack scandal, the script is being re-written even as filming is underway, which is not a situation most filmmakers want to contend with. However, Sony and Eon Productions confirmed that an earlier draft of the script that gave away key plot spoilers has been leaked to the web. To ensure that moviegoers don't have the experience of seeing the new film ruined in advance of its premiere next November, the producers have brought in other writers, including "Edge of Tomorrow" scribe Jez Butterworth, »
