24th James Bond Movie Starts Shooting Dec. 6

15 September 2014 11:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sam Mendes will begin filming the 24th James Bond film on Dec. 6, with the main cast members meeting for a table read that date at Pinewood Studios.

Daniel Craig will return as the iconic British spy for his fourth Bond movie. Also reprising their roles will be Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner and Ben Whishaw as Q.

Mendes, who directed the last Bond pic,”Skyfall,” is helming from a script by John Logan that was rewritten by the team of Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. The three scribes collaborated on “Skyfall,” but Logan had previously been the only writer on the as-yet-to-be-titled film known as Bond24.

MGM, Sony and producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli announced last summer that they had locked in release dates for the film, setting the U.K. launch for Oct. 23, 2015, and U.S. for Nov. »

'Bond 24' Gets A Start Date

15 September 2014 5:24 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

With a release date of November 6, 2015, it was only a matter of time before the next James Bond film- nicknamed Bond 24, for now- would go before cameras. There have been a handful of reports regarding the kinds of locations that are being scouted lately. We all ready know that Sam Mendes is back in the director's chair. We know that John Logan (Skyfall), Neal Purvis, and Robert Wade were writing the script. We also know that Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomi Harris, and Ben Whishaw would be back as 007, M, Moneypenny, and Q, respectively. Now, thanks to MI6-hq, we know exactly when production will start.

On December 6th, principal photography will begin on Bond 24. As of now, nothing is known about the plot of the film, though it's likely going to continue the trend of the Craig films where it will have direct ties to its predecessor. »

That’s quite a bit of casting to wrap up in the next couple months.

First Look at Nicole Kidman in 'Paddington', Plus a New Poster

28 August 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Weinstein Co. just sent over the above first look at Nicole Kidman in the upcoming live-action/CG-hybrid feature Paddington, the new movie based on the beloved fictional character from children's literature created by Michael Bond in 1958, along with a new teaser poster for the film at the bottom of this post. Paddington follows the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) with a passion for all things British who travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck -- "Please look after this bear. Thank you." -- and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of »

New Paddington Poster and a First Look at Nicole Kidman’s Sinister Taxidermist

28 August 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The latest poster has been released for Paddington, the rather charming looking Christmas movie which blends a CGI Paddington Bear with a live-action setting and a cast including Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, and Peter Capaldi (if you missed the first trailer, it can be found by clicking here).

For those of you wondering who it is voicing Paddington, it was recently revealed that Skyfall star Ben Whishaw had taken over from Colin Firth (The King’s Speech). It was a decision which both Firth and the movie’s director and producers all agreed with after realising that the beloved bear would be better off with a younger voice!

Along with a lovely new poster, we also have a first look at Nicole Kidman in Paddington as a sinister taxidermist who will seemingly be the one to set her sights on the sandwich loving bear in the movie. »

Robert Downey Jr. Defends His Honor in The Judge Poster; Plus New Posters for Foxcatcher and Paddington

27 August 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Posters for a trio of fall releases have landed online.  Briefly: The Judge – The first The Judge poster puts Robert Downey Jr. in a precarious position, as he’s forced to defend his father (Robert Duvall)—a judge—in the court of law.  The film marks director David Dobkin’s first foray into drama and I’m curious to see how it comes together when I catch its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next week.  The tagline is…interesting.  The pic opens in theaters on October 10th. Foxcatcher – The previous poster for Bennett Miller’s highly anticipated drama focused on Channing Tatum’s Olympic wrestler character, but this new poster is all about the transformed Steve Carell as eccentric millionaire John du Pont.  This is another film that will be screening at Tiff before its theatrical bow on November 14th.
