'The Martian' and Michael Moore lead 2015 Toronto Film Festival selections

9 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival now has something of a slate.  Festival toppers Cameron Bailey and Piers Handling presided over a press conference Tuesday morning where more than 34 films were announced including the world premieres of "The Martian," "The Family Fang" and "Demolition."  It's an intriguing initial lineup for the venerable Canadian institution and something of a steadying the ship after losing some major debuts to Venice, Telluride and the New York Film Festival over the past few years. Well, maybe. The most impressive world premieres include the aforementioned "Demolition" with Jake Gyllenhaal (officially the best opening night film in recent memory), "The Family Fang" with Nicole Kidman, "Legend" with Tom Hardy, "Trumbo" with Bryan Cranston, "The Martian" with Matt Damon and Lance Armstrong doc "The Program" with Ben Foster and Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Where to Invade Next."  Notable films that will have premiered »

James Bond Returns in New Spectre Trailer

27 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Can we say that Daniel Craig incarnation of James Bond rivals Sean Connery’s at this point, or is that still considered blasphemy? Given that Skyfall (2012) is, at least until the release of Spectre, the most complete and entertaining Bond film ever produced, I wonder if we can’t mention the two actors in the same sentence without feeling the least bit guilty.

The new trailer for Spectre does very little to dissuade my enthusiasm for Craig and his Bond films (although Quantum of Solace (2008) was quite the follow-up to Casino Royale (2006) I was hoping for). The new film looks to continue the dark and menacing nature of these films, and I’m all for it; it’s a tone that works for Bond. Here’s hoping that the final film delivers the good that this trailer promises.

The Actors Who Could Have Starred In Films, But Didn’t

26 July 2015 3:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Wars famously takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, and this week we found out about a parallel universe of casting in the film series. Neil Calloway looks at the actors who didn’t star in films, but could have…

The news that Michael Jackson wanted to play Jar Jar Binks in the Star Wars prequels is bizarre, and I can’t quite decide whether he would have improved the character or completely ruined the franchise with his appearance. Perhaps the most interesting part is that Jackson wanted the character to be created with make up and prosthetics – he worked with make up genius Rick Baker on the video for Thriller – rather than the CGI preferred by Lucas. There are many, many issues with the Star Wars prequels, but one of them is the over reliance on computer effects on practical effects. So maybe »

New Spectre trailer premieres

22 July 2015 7:22 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

The first full trailer for 'Spectre' sees Christoph Waltz introduce himself as ''the author'' of James Bond's ''pain''. The much-hyped teaser - the second to have been released since the movie's launch in December - shows the Oscar-winning star emerge as Bond's nemesis and the iconic secret agent, played by Daniel Craig, involved in a steamy love scene with Italian actress Monica Bellucci. The fast-paced clip also includes a dramatic action scene with Léa Seydoux, while British stars Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw reprise their roles as the rebooted Moneypenny and Q respectively. What's more, the trailer features brief appearances from Andrew Scott as Max Denbigh, the new head of the Centre for National Security, Ralph Fiennes as M and Dave Bautista, who's been cast in the role of Mr. Hinx. Earlier this month, 'Spectre' director Sam Mendes revealed he has no plans to helm another movie in the Bond franchise, »

Explosions and moody silhouettes dominated the first teaser for Spectre, but the James Bond flick's official trailer fills in more of the plot.

James Bond Meets the 'Author of All His Pain' In Explosive 'Spectre' Trailer

22 July 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Femme fatales, souped up cars and a mysterious villain in a Nehru jacket -- yep, it must be a new James Bond film! Sony released a brand new trailer for "Spectre" early this morning, giving us a better glimpse at Daniel Craig's next outing as 007. The clip sees our favorite secret agent bouncing between Mexico City, Rome, London and the Austrian Alps on a rogue mission to infiltrate a "sinister organization" known only as Spectre. With the aid of Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw), 007 tracks down Madeleine Swann (Lea Seydoux), the daughter of Mr. White -- who was previously seen in "Quantum of Solace" and "Casino Royale." This all leads him to Christoph Waltz's Franz Oberhauser, the head of the shadowy organization who has a "chilling connection" to Bond himself. "Welcome James, you come across me so many times, yet you never saw me. What took you so long? »

Things Get Personal in New Spectre Trailer

22 July 2015 6:18 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With filming wrapped and the movie only a few months away, Sony has released an all new full length trailer for the next James Bond film, Spectre...and things are hitting a little closer to home for the super spy.  Come inside to check it out.  

I want you to watch this trailer, and Try to not get excited for this movie.  Seriously, I dare you.  Where the first trailer was more about setting up the tone and story, this new one steps up the action in the only way a James Bond movie can, while still delivering on the story beats: 

See what I mean?  This is just an all around great trailer and teases some interesting things.  Bond doesn't seem to be following orders this time around, and rather than being on an official mission, he's doing this one all for himself.  He's set up a secret base, »

Daniel Craig is just getting started in first full trailer for Spectre

22 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Daniel Craig reprises the role of the dapper and dangerous James Bond in SpectreSam Mendes' last go as director within the 007 franchise. In the first full trailer, Bond has gone rogue, ignoring the directions of his new M (Ralph Fiennes) and asking Q (Ben Whishaw) to make him disappear – but why exactly?

Everything seems to be linked up with Léa Seydoux, a doctor who must be protected from S.P.E.C.T.R.E. – the Special Executive for Counter-Intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion – an anti-MI6, which appears to be headed by Christoph Waltz as his (sometimes scenery chewing) finest.

Seriously, we should all buy the casting director of Spectre a thousand martinis – shaken or stirred. This cast is basically perfect.

 

James Bond returns to Cineplex theatres everywhere on November 6 for his twenty-fourth film appearance,Spectre, which also Monica Belluci, Andrew Scott (“Sherlock”), and Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy »

Spectre: breaking down the new trailer

22 July 2015 2:58 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Daniel Craig is back at James Bond 007 in Spectre. And the new trailer gives some clues as to what to expect. Here's our detailed look...

Blimey, it's hard to beat a good James Bond trailer these days. Mirroring the memorable marketing campaign for Skyfall, the new trailer for Sam Mendes' second Bond movie gives us far more to chew on than March's teaser. Our analysis of that one is here.

It also gives us an idea of how the film will go back to the basics of the series while simultaneously tying up loose ends from the previous three films starring Daniel Craig, by bringing back the titular criminal organisation from the original run. If you haven't watched the trailer yet, take a look at the embedded video below and then read on for some potentially spoilery analysis of what's going on...

First Full Trailer For Spectre Arrives

22 July 2015 12:54 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We've seen a teaser, a TV spot, some featurettes and some stills, but what we've really been waiting for is a full trailer for the 24th official James Bond adventure Spectre. And the wait is over: that trailer is now upon us, in all its Austrian, Mexican and Rome-ish glory. Check it out below.So what have we got? Ralph Fiennes' M tells Bond he has "no authority" and berates him over a "holiday" during the Day Of The Dead celebrations in Mexico City. That would be a holiday including a fight on a helicopter and an exploded hotel room.Then we've got Naomie Harris's Moneypenny saying, "They say you're finished. I think you're just getting started," and Ben Whishaw's Q unveiling a new Aston Martin (the DB10, specially designed for this film) with "a few tricks up her sleeve" - which we later learn include jets of fire at the back. »
