Sam Mendes “frustrated” over time pressures on 'Spectre'

13 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Director of latest James Bond movie talks about the pressure of meeting studio demands.

Sam Mendes has revealed the time pressures he experienced while making Spectre, his second James Bond feature that has so far taken $750m at the global box office.

Speaking at a BAFTA Life In Pictures event, the British film-maker said: “One of the things I found frustrating about Spectre was that I didn’t quite have the amount of time I wanted… because of obvious pressures.

“They need a movie every two or three years to fulfil the studio obligation. I understand that, but it’s still tricky and we didn’t have that problem with Skyfall.”

Mendes recalled how a time delay on previous Bond film Skyfall, which took more than $1bn worldwide and remains the most commercially successful film of all time in the UK, had actually benefitted the process.

“In retrospect it was a stroke of luck – at the time »

Mendes: Andrew Scott was originally set to be the villain in Spectre

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

Andrew Scott was originally set to be the chief-villain in the latest James Bond movie, Spectre. Andrew Scott Spectre villain

Spoilers for Spectre below.

Sam Mendes took part in a BAFTA talk in the heart of London last night, and during his time here he managed to hook up with Empire magazine and drop an absolute bombshell. It seems that Christope Waltz’s bad guy Franz Oberhauser was not the original choice to be the overall mastermind behind the infamous organisation of Spectre in the most recent Bond film. It was going to be Mi6 chief Max Denbigh , played by Andrew Scott.

More on the Andrew Scott Spectre villain news below.

Mendes revealed that early drafts from the film had Scott’s Denbigh as the puppet-master behind the organisation, rather than Waltz’s Oberhauser. Denbigh was, of course, a naughty boy and eventually met his maker in the 24th Bond outing, »

30 November 2015 7:49 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With a whopping $749 million in box-office so far in spite of decidedly less glowing reviews than its predecessor, the producers behind the James Bond franchise aren't wasting any time getting the next film in the series going.

Speaking with 20 Minuten this week, Barbara Broccoli revealed that the hope is to continue with Daniel Craig in the role, but either way they're getting to work on the next film very soon:

"We have put three years of work into 'Spectre.' It was a thrill, but now we want to enjoy the success and the reactions of the audiences. In spring we start again. I hope we can continue with Daniel [Craig]. I love him, obviously not just me but also the audience. I will try my best to keep him on."

Ranked: Every James Bond Film

29 November 2015 4:16 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Cinelinx honors one of the longest running movie franchises in history by ranking all the primary Bond films from worst to best.

Our month of James Bond comes to an end. For our grand finale, we're ranking all of the Eon Productions/MGM Studios films. That's 24 films in total, starting with 1961's Dr. No and ending with the latest, 2015's Spectre. During this time, the franchise has seen a lot of sucess, but also has had its fair share of miscues and issues with legal rights. Six actors have played James Bond himself, each with a unique take on the character that has, in turn, led to different styles of films. James Bond is originally based on the character created by British novelest Ian Flemming. Although many of the films borrow their titles from Flemming's novels, they tend to borrow few aspects from their respetive novels/short stories and have unique plots. »

Box Office: ‘Hunger Games’ Leads Thanksgiving Pack, ‘Creed’ Scores

29 November 2015 7:53 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Moviegoers said goodbye to Katniss Everdeen and welcomed back Rocky Balboa, a series of farewells and reunions that powered Thanksgiving box office receipts above last year’s holiday.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” led a crowded field of contenders, topping charts with $75.8 million and bringing its domestic total to $198.3 million. It marks the final film in the hugely popular series, although Lionsgate, the studio behind the franchise, has hinted it wants to figure out ways to create future spin-offs.

The previous two “Hunger Games” films have both debuted the week before Thanksgiving and gone on to rule multiplexes over the holiday. Its dominance is practically a holiday tradition.

If “Mockingjay – Part 2’s” strong returns was a familiar Thanksgiving sight, the big surprise was how well “Creed” performed. The film successfully brought back Sylvester Stallone’s iconic Rocky character and revived a boxing franchise that seemed like a Reagan-era relic after »

Idris Elba says James Bond “could be any colour”, dismisses rumours

29 November 2015 3:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Idris Elba (Luther) has spoken to Variety about the persistent rumours that he may be the next actor to play James Bond and the potential for a black actor to take on the role.

Elba was interviewed by the magazine to promote his Netflix drama Beasts of No Nation, when discussion turned to the 007 rumours and author Anthony Horowitz’s controversial assertion that Elba was “too street” for the part.

The actor stated that he had barely been aware of the comments as he was working on other projects at the time.

“I really have nothing constructive to say about James Bond,” Elba said before adding that “it’s just a rumour”.

Elba was then asked about the broader question about whether a person of colour could portray Bond.

He said: “James Bond is a spy. He could be any color, »

The Daniel Craig Era: Bond takes two steps forward, one step back

28 November 2015 12:00 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With Spectre out in theaters, there has been no shortage of debate among Bond fans about where this entry lands in the series’ spectrum of quality, with some like PopOptiq’s own lead film critic J.R. Kinnard calling it “a glorious love letter to classic Bond”. To some this will sound like exactly what they want to hear, but after twenty-six movies (the Eon productions, along with 1967’s Casino Royale and Never Say Never Again), is an homage to classic formula the best way to close out what had seemed to be an attempt to genuinely take the franchise in a new direction during the Daniel Craig years? Tributes are for those who have no more to offer- those who soon will be gone, if they’re not already. Life and movie franchises are about pushing forward to stay alive; Spectre‘s safe retreat will only make regaining momentum that much more difficult. »

Development on Bond 25 to begin in the Spring

27 November 2015 11:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Spectre still raking in the cash at the global box office, producer Barbara Broccoli has revealed that development on Bond 25 is set to get underway this coming Spring.

“We have put three years of work into Spectre,” Broccoli tells It was a thrill, but now we want to enjoy the success and the reactions of the audiences. In spring we start again.”

Bond 25 will likely need to find a new director, with Skyfall and Spectre helmer Sam Mendes having seeminly ruled out a return, and while there’s been a tonne of speculation as to Daniel Craig’s continued involvement, Broccoli is keen to have him back for a fifth outing:

“I hope we can continue with Daniel,” she says. “I love him, obviously not just me but also the audience. I will try my best to keep him on.”

Work on the next Bond movie will start in the spring of 2016

26 November 2015 11:53 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Spectre continues to deliver big numbers in pretty much every cinema it screens in, and now as the dust settles, thoughts are turning to what will come next. The next movie in the 007 franchise is the 25th official Bond movie, and everyone will be expecting something special. With Sam Mendes ruling himself out, the director chair will need to be filled, but before all of that we’ll need a story, and a script.

In an interview with Swiss news magazine, producer Barbara Broccoli states that work on the film will star very soon.

“We have put three years of work into Spectre. It was a thrill, but now we want to enjoy the success and the reactions of the audiences. In spring we start again.” she said.

Now, I take that as meaning from scratch, which will put the 25th Bond adventure releasing in 2019, or October/ November 2018 at a push, »

Pierce Brosnan says he felt “kicked to the kerb” with Bond exit

26 November 2015 1:05 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month former 007 Pierce Brosnan shared his thoughts on Spectre, stating that he wasn’t too impressed by the 24th instalment in the long-running spy saga, and now the Irish actor has been speaking about his own exit as Bond after Die Another Day, stating that he felt “kicked to the kerb” by the unceremonious way it was handled.

“I was in the Bahamas, working on a movie called After the Sunset and my agents called me up and said, ‘Negotiations have stopped. [Producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson] are not quite sure what they want to do. They’ll call you next Thursday,’” states Brosnan in Matthew Field and Ajay Chowdhury’s book Some Kind of Hero: The Remarkable Story of the James Bond Films. “I sat in Richard Harris’s house in the Bahamas, and Barbara and Michael were on the line —‘We’re so sorry.’ She was crying, Michael was stoic and he said, »

Box Office: ‘Hunger Games’ Tops ‘Good Dinosaur,’ ‘Creed’ Heading Into Thanksgiving

26 November 2015 8:26 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” led a crowded field of box office contenders heading into the Thanksgiving holiday. The final film in the popular futuristic series nabbed $13.7 million on Wednesday, pushing its domestic haul to $183 million.

But two other films threatened to dethrone the blockbuster — “Creed,” a euphorically reviewed “Rocky” reboot,  and “The Good Dinosaur,” a Pixar release destined to launch a thousand toylines.

Globally, “Mockingjay – Part 2” has earned nearly $320 million. It is expected to top stateside charts for the second weekend in a row with $75 million, despite debuting last weekend to a weaker than expected $102.7 million, the lowest opening for any “Hunger Games” installment.

Creed” punched above its weight, picking up $6 million from 3,350 locations in its opening day. The Ryan Coogler (“Fruitvale Station”) drama focuses on the son of Rocky Balboa rival Apollo Creed, played by Michael B. Jordan. Sylvester Stallone dons the monosyllables once again to play Balboa, »

The Bond Look from Spectre

25 November 2015 10:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As we mentioned already, Spectre hasn’t been receiving particularly favorable reviews, as even we affectionately titled it the worst James Bond movie ever. However, what wasn’t awful was the classic Bond look achieved in Spectre that allows us to at least applaud the wardrobe department. So here comes at least one positive review for the film; these were our favorite Bond looks from the movie.

Tom Ford Snowdon Sunglasses

One of the best looks that we appreciated was in fact eye-catching eyewear. The Tom Ford Snowdon Sunglasses were sported superbly by Daniel Craig as Bond in Spectre. It is hard not to look great in these, with their slick design and unimposing silver T’s by the temples, these glasses are some of the best work in eyewear by Tom Ford yet. Plus, Tom Ford is responsible for dressing Craig as Bond in general and is present in »

On Mubi / Off #1: "Terminal Island" & "Spectre"

23 November 2015 8:15 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The parameters, mutually agreed upon by my editor Danny Kasman and myself, are these: A bi-weekly (every two weeks) column, entitled "On Mubi / Off," covering two films—one currently available on the Mubi streaming platform in the United States, the other screening offsite (in theaters, on VOD, Blu-ray/DVD, etc). The movies may share some similarities in approach, execution and theme, or they may not. Mostly, my own interests and curiosity will dictate what films are covered and in what way, and I hope you'll find the prose, the pairings, and/or the analysis compelling enough to follow along.On MUBITerminal Island (Stephanie Rothman, 1973)Sight unseen, I thought Stephanie Rothman's 1973 exploitation cheapie Terminal Island would make for a good inaugural article lead-off—something Z-grade disreputable to complement the A-level sleaze (not necessarily a criticism) of the other movie covered in this column.

Jennifer Lawrence Destroys James Bond and Pretty Much Everyone Else at the Box Office

22 November 2015 3:02 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Spectre, being touted as potentially the final Daniel Craig James Bond movie, has been breaking records like crazy since its premiere. But the film has been slowing down tremendously, only making $14.6 million in its second week for a total domestic gross of $153.7 million. With a certain movie set in a certain galaxy far far away on the horizon, it remains to be seen if Spectre will live up to the enormous box office hype. This week, James Bond was no match for Jennifer Lawrence, as the verbosely-titled The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 absolutely destroyed every other movie at the box office this weekend, pulling in over $101 million. That's admittedly $20 million less than its predecessor, but when you beat James Bond by over $80 million, that ain't too bad. Mockingjay — Part 2 is the fifth film of 2015 to open with a $100 million haul.The »

Box Office: ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2’ Aims for $102 Million Weekend

21 November 2015 8:05 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The final chapter in The Hunger Games saga, Mockingjay — Part 2, is on track to hit a $102 million bullseye in its opening weekend, based on Friday receipts.

The fourth installment in the Jennifer Lawrence-led series hit a total of $46 million Friday at 4,175 locations, handily topping all other titles at the box office. The Lionsgate release started strong in Thursday night previews, generating $16 million. Earlier estimates had pegged the actioner’s three-day total around $110 million. This marks the lowest opening day in the “Hunger Games” franchise.

The three earlier “Hunger Games” pics performed mightily at the box office, combining for $2.3 billion in worldwide grosses. “Mockingjay — Part 1” opened to $121.9 million domestically following the first film’s $152.5 million launch and “Catching Fire’s” $158.1 million kickoff.

Should it hit its expected mark, “Mockingjay — Part 2” will be the year’s fifth-biggest U.S. opening, behind “Jurassic World” ($208.8 million), “Avengers: Age of Ultron” ($191.3 million), “Furious 7 »
