2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actor

5 October 2015 9:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quentin Tarantino has led Christoph Waltz to two Oscars in this category, but Waltz is absent from the director's latest, "The Hateful Eight." That film boasts a whopping seven potential contenders in this category (only of the noted eight is a woman, which could get Jennifer Jason Leigh a nod in the supporting actress race -- her first). Kurt Russell and  Bruce Dern seem like they have the showiest parts (rumor has it Samuel L. Jackson will be going lead), putting them in contention amidst a seemingly endless list of other contenders: Mark Rylance ("Bridge of Spies") Idris Elba ("Beasts of No Nation"), Seth Rogen ("Steve Jobs"), Joel Egerton ("Black Mass"), Harvey Keitel ("Youth"), Michael Keaton and Mark Ruffalo ("Spotlight"), Jason Segel ("The End of The Tour") and Benicio Del Toro ("Sicario") are among the many actors already in this race, and we still have so many performances left to. »

'Spectre' Music Video Has Sam Smith Serenading James Bond

5 October 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

'Writing's On The Wall' by Sam Smith, the official theme song from Spectre, gets a sexy music video featuring scenes from the movie. The Grammy Award-winning singer is seen serenading James Bond as the super spy embarks on his greatest adventure yet. The moody ballad has 007 stalking Lucia Sciarra through dark corridors as he prepares for his finally showdown with an evil organization that could change his life forever. But that doesn't stop him from stripping off the clothes of this new Bond girl as they make out against a mirrored wall in a seedy hotel room. Then, just seconds later, Bond is seen trying to seduce Madeleine Swann. And it looks like 007 is breaking more hearts than he has time for.

Albert R. Broccoli's Eon Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment http://movieweb.com/spectre-theme-song-sam-smith-writings-on-wall/announced in early September that Sam Smith had recorded Writing's On The Wall, »

Watch Christoph Waltz Officially Kill The Spectre Blofeld Rumor In One Frustrated Speech

5 October 2015 7:56 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In a dark room at the end of a long, shadowed hallway, I learned the first rule of talking to Christoph Waltz about James Bond: don.t bring up Blofeld. I interviewed him while visiting the set of Spectre many moons ago, and the Blofeld chatter was the hot ticket rumor at the time. The Oscar-winning actor was having none of it. Watch his latest response below.  Long story short, he outright denies that his Franz Oberhauser character is secretly the famed Bond villain and leader of the Spectre organization. He said,  First of all, on what basis? You know, it.s silly. It.s plain silly.So that.s done with . the Blofeld question. Why would they make a movie that they.ve done before? Rumors about Waltz.s hidden agenda in the film arose a while back, even as far as before the big press conference when he »

Daniel Craig Confident Of James Bond Future Beyond Spectre

5 October 2015 7:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Throughout the build-up to the release of Sam Mendes’ spy sequel Spectre, speculation has been rife regarding which actor would succeed Daniel Craig in the role of James Bond. From Damien Lewis to the much-touted addition of Idris Elba, the Internet has deliberated over the next Bond for months at this point, though it seems in this case, the simplest answer happens to be the right one a la Occam’s Razor.

That’s right, rather than pass on the torch and Walther Ppk after the release of Spectre, actor Daniel Craig remains confident that he’ll reprise the role of the famed super spy for Bond 25 – he is contractually obliged for one more film, after all – stating that he will continue to embark on globe-trotting adventures as the legendary agent for “as long as [he’s] physically able.”

Watch Sam Smith’s James Bond Theme Song “Writing’s On The Wall” From Spectre

5 October 2015 5:56 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Here’s a first look at the new James Bond/Spectre theme song, “Writing’s On The Wall,” from Sam Smith.

The 24th James Bond adventure will be released in the UK on October 26 and in the Us on November 6.

Multi-platinum selling artist Sam Smith has co-written the title song, “Writing’s On The Wall,” with fellow Grammy Award winner Jimmy Napes. It is the first James Bond theme song recorded by a British male solo artist since 1965.

The 23 previous James Bond theme songs make up some of the most memorable movie music of all time.  The previous Bond theme song, “Skyfall,” was performed by Adele, and was honored with the Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, the Brit Award for British Single of the Year, and the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media.

Watch 'Spectre' Star Christoph Waltz Evade the Blofeld Question With Spectacular Charm

5 October 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Earlier this year, we visited the Mexico City set of the latest Daniel Craig-as-James Bond adventure, "Spectre" (the follow-up to "Skyfall," the most successful James Bond movie ever). It was an incredible experience, which required 1,520 locals and took five months of preparation, and much of what we saw on location can be seen in the latest "Spectre" trailer, which is the moodiest and most intense look at the Sam Mendes film yet. But we did more than just watch a complicated helicopter stunt while in Mexico City, we also talked to many of the Spectre principles, including Christoph Waltz, Dave Bautista, and Léa Seydoux.

In this three-minute mash-up of our interviews, you can hear Seydoux talk about the differences between her character and the role she played in "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" (she's the only actress to appear in both franchises), Bautista joke about how everyone automatically assumed »

Spectre: 8 Major Reveals From Sam Smith’s Writing’s On The Wall Video

5 October 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Like a British Secret Service agent who’s just knocked back his second martini and clocked eyes on seductive woman across the room as assassins move in, the hype train for Spectre is getting into full gear. Only last week the “Final Trailer” for Bond 24 dropped and now we have the official music video for Sam Smith’s Writing’s On The Wall.

There’s been a pretty mixed reaction to Smith’s opening theme, with some critics even going as far as calling it un-Bond (I’m firmly in the opposite camp, each re-listen of the tune making it feel ever more fitting as the opening for the much anticipated new 007 instalment).

Even if you can’t stand the opening theme, however, the music video is still worth checking out – it’s nicely put together and there’s a lot of new footage in there that sheds »

With just over a month before the latest James Bond installment Spectre opens, the final trailer for the film has been released. After a series of backstory-heavy teasers and commercials that merely hinted at the fight between Daniel Craig's James Bond and Christoph Waltz's Franz Oberhauser – with the villain often shrouded in darkness – the final trailer finds Oberhauser stepping out of the shadows for a confrontation between the two leads.

"Why did you come?" Oberhauser asks Bond in a sunlit hallway. "I came here to kill you," Bond admits, »

Final 'Spectre' trailer puts Daniel Craig face to face with Christoph Waltz

2 October 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We are in the home stretch now, with only a month to go before the new James Bond film arrives in theaters, and Sony has just issued the final trailer for the film. I've been somewhat ambivalent about "Spectre" since it went into production. I want to be excited, but I've been given plenty of reasons to be hesitant. That feels especially strange considering how much I've enjoyed the series since "Casino Royale." I thought "Skyfall" was a strong entry in the series for a variety of reasons. You can read my insanely lengthy review of the film if you want. I came out of that movie hyped for them to get started on the next film immediately, and when word came that they had finally won the rights back to use Blofeld and Spectre, I thought it was a good omen for the series overall. The new trailer is surprisingly short, »
