How Daniel Radcliffe Killed Harry Potter and Found ‘What If’

44 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Growing up, Daniel Radcliffe always thought Harry Potter would die at the end of J.K. Rowling’s books. “Because of the prophecy with Lord Voldemort,” Radcliffe says on a recent afternoon in New York, between cigarette puffs. “I thought, ‘How is she going to get out of that one?’ ” He finally worked up the courage to ask the bestselling author when she came to see him in the London production of “Equus” in 2007. “I was happy to be proven wrong,” Radcliffe says. “For an actor, what more can you wish for? You get a death scene — and then you get more screen time.”

Even though Voldemort couldn’t finish off Potter, someone else has. The culprit is none other than Radcliffe himself, who was cast to play the boy wizard at the age of 11 in 2001’s “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.” Over the next 10 years, the eight “Potter »

James Gunn Says No To Directing A ‘Bond’ Film

6 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

 

Given how much we have gushed about his latest film Guardians Of The Galaxy (see review), it is pretty clear than James Gunn is our director of the moment. We were fortunate enough to be in his presence as we attended the press conference, however we couldn’t quite snag a one-on-one interview.

Our friends over at new television channel London Live had more luck and spoke to Gunn about a whole host of things. They chatted London, Shepperton studios, and the films that inspired James as a boy. Top of the agenda though was would Gunn direct a Bond film should Hollywood ask? He was quick to say no, see his reasons for this in the video below:

 

We can’t help but be a little disappointed by Gunn’s response; Rocket Raccoon is a dab hand at gadgetry and can easily see him aiding Daniel Craig as a new Q. »

Films that'd get a fairer hearing if they weren't sequels

29 July 2014 4:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some sequels are doomed to live in the shadow of the hits that triggered them. Here are a few examples...

Following up a successful movie with a sequel is a tough proposition for any writer or director, and it's often the case that such follow-ups fail to recreate the magic of their predecessors. But sometimes, sequels can offer a different yet entertaining experience of their own, and it's even possible that, if they didn't happen to share the same name as an earlier hit film, they might even have been better received.

This article's dedicated to a few of these kinds of films. They offer lots of excitement, comedy, jolts of terror and a smattering of great performances, and might have fared better with audiences and critics had they not been sequels. At the very least, they attempted to do something a little different than the films they followed. While other examples undeniably remain, »

Fox at Comic-Con: James Bond Is Whack, We're Making Movies With Balls (and Jokes)

25 July 2014 7:26 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Ian Fleming‘s James Bond books and a plethora of young adult novels have delivered billions of dollars at the box office for Hollywood, but filmmakers at Comic-Con think they can improve upon those meek film adaptations. “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” an adaptation of Mark Millar's comic book, is a “spy movie for people who find spy movies just a little bit boring,” Millar told the crowd in Hall H on Friday at the 20th Century Fox panel. Millar lamented the brooding, modern incarnation of Bond, as played by Daniel Craig. “When Bond kills a guy he cries in the shower about. »

True Story: Boredom, Bananas, Bond

25 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On Wednesday I drew a picture of James Bond on a Banana and posted it online.

Nathaniel R. "Bond on Banana" 2014. Mixed Media on Fruit, 9"x1½"

I have no explanation for this other than the perfect storm / terrible timing of innate online playfulness fused with genuine insanity and egged on by dread over Jury Duty to commence the following morning. Jury Duty is so boring (you just sit in a very official dull room in monotony waiting for your name to be called for 16 hours! I'm still there right now as you read this.) that on Wednesday I felt something akin to complete preemptive desperation to amuse myself. So when The Incredible Suit (whose blog I've always loved) promised he'd review it if someone drew Bond on a Banana, I did.

He kept his promise and I am left frightened at how deeply burrowed Daniel Craig in a blue speedo must be in my psyche. »

James Bond 24 heading to Rome

23 July 2014 10:20 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Daniel Craig's James Bond will be racing through the streets of Italy in the next

News

The bulk of the 23rd James Bond film, Skyfall, ended up filming in the UK, in part down to a slightly more frugal approach. It worked a treat though, with director Sam Mendes and his team delivering the most popular James Bond movie to date at the box office.

For the 24th James Bond adventure, which Mendes is set to start filming later this year, it's now been revealed that Daniel Craig's 007 will be off to Italy. As MI6-hq reports, Lazio Film Commission president Luciano Sovena has dropped a few details.

"I met the producers of the Bond series, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson", Sovena said, "and we discussed the project. One of the key scenes, among the most spectacular in the film, will be a car chase in Via Quattro Fontane. »

Even though production has been delayed on Bond 24 until December, the producers are still working to secure locations for the new 007 adventure. MI6 reports that Luciano Sovena, the new head of the Lazio Film Commission, has met with Bond 24 to secure an important shoot in Rome for an action-packed car chase.

Here's what Luciano Sovena had to say to members of the Italian press, although it's clear that nothing is finalized yet.

"I met the producers of the Bond series, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, and we discussed the project. One of the key scenes, among the most spectacular in the film, will be a car chase in Via Quattro Fontane. I'm already excited. I hope that the City streamlines the procedures for the granting of permits, it would be a shame to miss this great opportunity because of the bureaucracy."

10 Presents Celebrities Might Be Getting Prince George For His Birthday

22 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Blue Ivy Carter has a solid gold rocking horse. North West has a wardrobe any adult woman would envy. That’s the life of a celebrity baby — a King’s ransom worth of expensive gifts come birthday time. Sitting in the lap of luxury, these tiny tots have it all. So as we wish a very happy first birthday to little Prince George of Cambridge, we’re speculating the treasure troves of gifts he might be receiving from his high-flying celebrity pals to celebrate his first year on planet Earth.

It’s obviously only the best Kate and William’s son. Perhaps he’ll receive a mini James Bond suit from Daniel Craig, or a diamond encrusted pacifier from Kate Moss? Considering his family’s connections, Elton John could write him a song, or maybe he’ll get one of those mini electric cars for kids — a Beamer or a Merc, »

Joey King, who plays Braff's character's daughter, Grace, told The Hollywood Reporter at Monday night's New York premiere of Wish I Was Here that she donated money to the film on Kickstarter before she was even attached to the family-centric film as a castmember.

How James Bond Was Almost an Ambassador for Indian Railways

15 July 2014 4:35 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

“Indian Railways is stronger than James Bond.” Daniel Craig might have said that line in Skyfall had negotiations between the film's producers and India's Railway Ministry not fallen through back in 2011. Participating in a Parliament discussion Monday on the government's recently announced annual Railway Budget, former railways minister Dinesh Trivedi revisited how the Sam Mendes-directed Skyfall nearly involved James Bond endorsing one of the world's largest train networks, which transports over 24 million people daily.

12 Potential Future James Bond Directors

13 July 2014 1:29 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Eon Productions

The 24th installment in the long-running James Bond franchise was scheduled to start shooting in a matter of weeks, but reported issues with the script have now seen that start date pushed back to December, with regular series screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade reportedly rewriting John Logan’s initial draft to inject more humor, in keeping with Daniel Craig’s quote that ‘hopefully we’ll reclaim some of the old irony’ that the franchise was well-known for once upon a time.

These script changes, along with the protracted negotiations surrounding Sam Mendes’ return to the director’s chair, are making it seem increasing unlikely that either Mendes or Logan will return for a third Bond adventure. In fact, following the $1.1bn success of Skyfall, the as-yet-untitled follow-up marks the first time in 25 years that the same director has taken charge of back-to-back Bond movies. So far, there »

Jim Belushi Will Tell The Whole Truth

10 July 2014 11:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ahead of starting production in New Orleans this week, Frozen River director Courtney Hunt’s courtroom drama The Whole Truth has added Saturday Night Live alum and famed comedian Jim Belushi to its cast, which is being led by Keanu Reeves and Renée Zellweger. The movie suffered a serious setback earlier this year when star Daniel Craig, then set for the lead role, dropped out right before production was due to begin. Luckily, Reeves was able to climb on board in June, and now the film is again ready to move forward.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle) and Gabriel Basso (The Kings of Summer) also have roles in The Whole Truth, which centers on a defense attorney named Richard Ramsay (Reeves), who is defending a teenager named Mike (Basso) charged with murder. The evidence against his client includes a knife with his finger prints and a near confession, but Ramsay remains unconvinced of his guilt. »
