13 August 2015 10:14 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Monica Bellucci and Léa Seydoux reveal more about their characters in this latest featurette for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures/Columbia Pictures/Eon Productions’ action adventure Spectre.

A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as Spectre.

Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of Spectre.

Spectre Featurette Introduces The Bond Franchise’s New Female Recruits

13 August 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While moviegoers continue to deliberate on exactly who will be singing the film’s main theme song, MGM and Sony have peeled back the curtain on a new Spectre featurette, one which spotlights the film’s new female recruits.

Narrated by Monica Bellucci and the award-winning Léa Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Color), here the newcomers offer up new information relating to their respective characters following their formal introduction some months ago. Up first is Bellucci’s Lucia Sciarra, who is on board to play “an Italian widow with secrets. Her mafioso husband is killed and she risks the same thing happening to her.” At 50 years of age, Bellucci is bringing a certain tenacity and maturity to her role in Spectre, with director Sam Mendes adding that the actress has that “certain amount of life experience and maturity, and she’s the whole package, really.”

On the other hand, Seydoux »

Bellucci added of Lucia: "She's an Italian widow with secrets."

Director Sam Mendes said: "In Spectre, the two women who Bond hooks up with both have great mystery, they both have depths, and for that you need fantastic actresses."

Mendes has confirmed that Spectre will be his last Bond outing, following his success with Skyfall in 2012.

Daniel Craig returns for his fourth outing as James Bond in his 24th official screen adventure. A new trailer was unveiled last month. »

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.

Full-Length Spectre Trailer Sends Daniel Craig’s 007 On His Most Daring Mission Yet

22 July 2015 12:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If Daniel Craig’s 007 has been continually evolving throughout the actor’s tenure as Ian Fleming’s shaken-not-stirred agent, then Spectre is primed to offer an introspective look into the super-spy’s dark and eschewed psyche. Set to pick up shortly after the events of Skyfall, Sam Mendes’ anticipated sequel will see our world-famous operative hunt down the titular organization, and unearth secrets about his own past in the process; secrets that are merely teased in this tantalizing second trailer for the upcoming actioner.

Opening in the thick of the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos, the footage starts there and never lets up, whisking Bond back to London and off to the streets of Rome for that all-important car chase sequence with Dave Bautista’s Mr. Hinx. Finally, there’s a bigger and better look at Christoph Waltz as lead villain Franz Oberhauser, who looks to be holding all »

'Spectre' Updates: 'Bigger' Than 'Skyfall,' 'Fantastic' Theme Song, Mendes' Last Bond?

20 July 2015 2:24 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Spectre," the 24th movie in the James Bond franchise will shake - not stir - its way into theaters October 26 in the U.K. and November 6 in the U.S. It took director Sam Mendes five years to make the latest Daniel Craig Bond movie, following their collaboration in "Skyfall." Sam talked to BBC Radio about the new movie and his decision that "this is probably it" for him when it comes to directing Bond movies. He did say that once before, but this time he added, "I don't think I could go down that road again," because it swallows up so much time and energy. So if he's not around for Bond25, we'll have to stay tuned for who might be jumping in. (Christopher Nolan? Wes Anderson - kidding! Although that would be interesting...)

James Bond Musical Production Causes Legal Dispute

9 July 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Producers Albert R. Broccoli (left) and Harry Saltzman with author Ian Fleming and star Sean Connery in a publicity photo taken before production started on the first 007 film "Dr. No" in 1962

 

By Lee Pfeiffer

Eon Productions has stated on the company's web site and Facebook page that they have not granted rights for a James Bond musical production. Earlier, Merry Saltzman, one of the daughters of the late 007 producer Harry Saltzman, announced that she was staging a musical production based on the Bond films. In response to the Eon statement, Saltzman indicated that she has not sought rights from Eon nor does she believe she needs them since her stage production would fall into the category of a parody. Eon has been very protective of the Bond brand over the decades and it remains to be seen how this will be resolved. The situation does open some old wounds that many thought were long closed. »

Will Damian Lewis Replace Daniel Craig as James Bond? Bookies Slash Odds

16 June 2015 6:19 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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 »

Spectre Extended TV Spot Brings the Action

10 June 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

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.
