London — Rumors that Damian Lewis could become the next James Bond have forced U.K. bookmakers to slash their odds on him taking the role. Meanwhile, 007 production company Eon Productions has released behind-the-scenes footage of the opening sequence of the latest Bond film, “Spectre.”
Odds on the former “Homeland” star stepping into Daniel Craig’s shoes have tightened from 25/1 to 3/1, according to Britain’s biggest bookmaker William Hill. The bookie’s favorite remains former “The Wire” and “Luther” star Idris Elba, who is 5/2. Other actors in the running include Tom Hardy (4/1), Henry Cavill (5/1), Michael Fassbender (7/1) and Orlando Bloom (12/1). The odds that “Spectre” will be Craig’s last appearance as Bond are 10/1.
“This is an unprecedented gamble, as for no apparent reason we have seen bets of up to £200 ($312) on Damian Lewis being named as the next Bond. This could well be significant and might herald the end of Daniel Craig »

Everyone from Tilda Swinton and her family to the British tabloids are speculating --yet again--about who should play the next James Bond, as Daniel Craig is nearing the end of his run. Sam Mendes' second crack at Bond, "Spectre" (November 6), also written by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, could mark Craig's fourth and last turn as MI6 agent 007. In the movie Bond gets a message from his past that puts him in pursuit of the organization Spectre--and sets him against the latest Bond villain (Christoph Waltz). Meanwhile M (Ralph Fiennes) battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, as Miss Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) offer support. New cast members include Léa Seydoux, David Bautista and Monica Bellucci. Check out a behind-the-scenes spot below. "Spectre" is produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.

A new Spectre featurette has just been released from the production of the 24th James Bond adventure. The 2-minute promo features a behind-the-scenes look at the film, which is still shooting under the direction of Sam Mendes.
The Mexico set action sequence will have the country’s Day Of The Dead festival as a back drop, and will feature as the elaborate opening scene of the new movie, which opens in the UK and the Us in early November this year.
Sam Mendes said: “I wanted the audience to be dropped right into the middle of a very, very specific, very heady, rich environment. It’s the Day of the Dead, everywhere you look there’s colour and detail and life. »

A new extended television spot for the upcoming James Bond movie, Spectre, has landed and brings us a slew of new action-packed footage. Come inside to check it out!
If you've been needing a good fix of James Bond lately, then you're in luck with this brand new TV spot. It starts off pretty much like the initial teaser trailer did, but delves into a lot more action on the latter half of it, giving us new looks at Bond in action along with the villains:
It's pretty clear that they're looking to step up the action in Spectre from even what they offered in Skyfall, and I'm not complaining one bit. After seeing how great everything came together in the previous movie, I'm more than willing to give the film every benefit of the doubt. I can't wait to see more when it hits theaters on November 6, 2015.

We certainly felt the power of 10 former Gladiators yesterday, as we took a look at what some of the stars went on to after the success of ITV's '90s hit.
We were bowled over to discover that Blaze (Eunice Huthart) is a stunt double to A-listers and godmother to Angelina Jolie's daughter Shiloh, and that Rhino (Mark Smith) went on to star in Hollywood films including Ben Affleck's Oscar-winning drama Argo.
But whatever happened to the villainous Wolf or the infamous Shadow, who was dramatically sacked from the series? We haven't found many current pictures of this lot, but here's a little bit about what 9 more of our favourite former Gladiators got up to after their time on the show:

The pre-credits Day of the Dead parade scene from Spectre will reportedly feature over 1500 extras and Bond producer Michael G. Wilson has described it as "the biggest sequence we've ever done." Last month a breakdown of the scene landed online, and now Yahoo has released a video that is a mix of behind-the-scenes footage and stills from the shoot in Mexico City. 2nd unit director Alex Witt and actress Stephanie Sigman (Estrella) provided details on what's »

Early into production of the next James Bond film, Spectre, leading man Daniel Craig suffered a knee injury on the set. Craig had to have surgery to repair the damage. Will the film still make its November release date?
Secret agent James Bond may have a knack for shrugging off beatings and injuries that would lay out a normal man, but the guy who portrays him doesn’t have that sort of luck. A studio spokesman told the BBC that 007 actor Daniel Craig injured his leg while filming a fight sequence in the Austrian Alps, as part of the latest film in the Bond franchise, Spectre. The knee injury was at first thought to be only a sprain, but it turned out that the damage was more serious than originally believed, so Craig had to undergo arthroscopic surgery. He is currently resting and recovering.
What does this mean for the film, »
- firstname.lastname@example.org (Rob Young)
Of all the things to stop James Bond dead in his tracks, a small knee injury wouldn’t be the first obstacle to come to mind. Nevertheless, following an on-set accident back in February, MGM has confirmed that star Daniel Craig underwent minor knee surgery during a scheduled Spectre break to correct said injury. He is human, after all!
Here’s what a spokesperson had to say about the incident, which won’t have any impact on the film’s production schedule.
“During a scheduled break, Daniel Craig had arthroscopic surgery to repair his knee injury. He will rejoin production on April 22nd at Pinewood.”
Craig first sprained his knee whilst filming an action scene at England’s famous Pinewood Studios, though this didn’t affect Spectre‘s European shoots that followed, as it’s understood the actor didn’t miss any days of filming as production switched to Rome »

Bond producer Michael G. Wilson is making a bold claim telling Empire the opening sequence to the new James Bond movie Spectre, which takes place during the Day of the Dead celebration in Mexico, will be "the biggest opening sequence we've ever done, maybe the biggest sequence we've ever done". "The whole vision that director Sam Mendes has come up with is very exciting and amazing," Wilson added. "We've got 1500 extras in Day of the Dead costumes and make up and we've occupied the centre of Mexico City for days. The only thing that's come close to it was putting on the carnival in Rio in Moonraker see video, and I think this is a much bigger operation." So what does this opening entailc Well, according to Empire, we'll get "exploding buildings, a pulse-quickening foot chase through the Day Of The Dead parade and a fight inside a helicopter, which »

Late last week, the first trailer for "Spectre" dropped, and it was a lot of moody lighting and people talking in hushed, ominous tones. But don't worry, the actual movie is going to bring the requisite ambition we now expect from a franchise that kissed the billion dollar mark with "Skyfall." You'll know it right from the opening moments of the movie, set during the Day Of The Dead in Mexico, where lensing is currently underway. It will be "the biggest opening sequence we've ever done, maybe the biggest sequence we've ever done," producer Michael G. Wilson told Empire, adding, "We've got 1500 extras in Day Of The Dead costumes and make up and we've occupied the centre of Mexico City for days. The only thing that's come close to it was putting on the carnival in Rio in 'Moonraker,' and I think this is a much bigger operation. »

Over the weekend, we were in Mexico City on the set of the next James Bond outing "Spectre." This film marks the fourth time that Daniel Craig has inhabited the role of 007 and the second collaboration between Craig and his "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes. During the last phase of our trip, we were offered a special treat: a roundtable sit down with the longtime shepherds of the James Bond franchise: producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. Broccoli is, of course, the daughter of 007 producer Albert "Cubby" Broccoli and is Wilson's step brother (Wilson wrote several of the 007 movies, including "The Living Daylights," which also partially took place in Mexico).
The trailer for "Spectre" having premiered just hours before, we had a lot of questions for the producing team (and surprisingly, they only refused to answer some). In our conversation, they teased the connection between "Skyfall" and "Spectre" (and to »

Empire magazine recently visited the set of the upcoming James Bond movie "Spectre" and witnesses the filming of the opening sequence, which producer Michael Wilson says will be massive in scale. "[It will be] the biggest opening sequence we've ever done, maybe the biggest sequence we've ever done," he said of a scene that takes place during Mexico's national Day of the Dead festival. "The whole vision that Sam Mendes has come up with is very exciting and amazing. We've got 1500 extras in Day Of The Dead costumes and make up and we've occupied the center of Mexico City for days." The scene kicks of the story of "Spectre" and includes exploding buildings, a thrilling chase and fight inside of a helicopter. Check out the photos below to get an idea of what to expect.

Over the past few days, I got to visit the Mexico City set of the next James Bond movie, Spectre. Directed by Sam Mendes (Skyfall) and starring Daniel Craig as Bond, everything I saw and learned during my set visit makes me extremely confident that the upcoming sequel will be something special. For more on the film, here’s a description of the awesome-sounding opening chase sequence that will be between twelve and fifteen minutes of screen time. The day after my set visit, I got to participate in group interview with Spectre producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. While they were tight lipped about revealing the secrets of Spectre, we got updates on the theme song, how they decided what would be in the teaser trailer, putting together the cast, the rumors that Spectre could have been a two-part movie, if James Bond could exist in a shared universe, »

While the teaser trailer for the next James Bond film "Spectre" surprisingly went further than expected in some of the film's big reveals, one thing that was notably absent was action.
Much like the very first "Batman Begins" trailer, the filmmakers focused specifically on character drama for the teaser. Some establishing shots gave the footage grandeur, but even so it was only people sitting and talking in rooms.
One of the reasons for that is the film is still in the midst of shooting with some big action set pieces still to be done. The film's production crew were recently on location in Mexico City shooting one of the key action set pieces of the film - the pre-credits sequence.
Minor Spoilers Ahead
Various outlets were on hand in the city for one day of the nearly ten day shoot in which 1,500 extras participated in a recreation of the Mexican »

When last we saw Naomie Harris as the new Moneypenny in Skyfall, she was taking a leave from the field and resigning to be the secretary to the new M (Ralph Fiennes). If you thought that was it for the character.s adrenaline junkie lifestyle as we head into Spectre territory, don.t count her out. Along with a group of press, we spoke with James Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson while covering the Mexico City set of Spectre. According to them, Miss Moneypenny is still very much involved in the plot of the new movie. Said Broccoli, You can.t keep this one behind a desk. This Moneypenny is very active. She is key to the story and key to helping Bond on his mission. She.s not deskbound. There.s a reason the Moneypenny reveal was made at the end of Skyfall. If you recall »
Shortly after the first trailer debuted, a number of various sites reported back from the set of the latest James Bond adventure Spectre. They gave a detailed account of the opening action scene, which takes place in Mexico City's Plaza de la Constitución during Day of the Dead. A number of new production photos were released as well, featuring both Daniel Craig in his return as 007 and Stephanie Sigman in her Day of the Dead disguise. From the sounds of it, Spectre will kick things off with one heck of a chase sequence.
The scene in question is taking nearly ten days to shoot, and will utilize more than 1500 extras all decked out in Day of the Dead make-up. The scene features James Bond meeting Estrella (Stephanie Sigman) in the crowded streets surrounded by giant Skeleton floats and other larger-than-life decorations. They hurry to make their way through the massive parade, »
