Bookies Offering Odds on the Next James Bond!

21 June 2017 7:13 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

When it is looking highly likely than any Hollywood actor or film character is going to be replaced, as opposed to being killed off, you can bet your bottom Dollar that many betting sites, Sportsbooks and bookmarkers around the globe will be very eager to cash in on such things.

That is certainly the case in regards to the current actor playing the role of James Bond, that being Daniel Craig, and as he will soon be leaving that role not only are there plenty of actors being possibly pencilled in to replace him, many betting companies are offering a betting market on who is likely to replace him as the next 007.

Everyone will of course have their own opinion on who would be best to replace him, and the much loved actress Diane Keaton has gone on record as saying James Norton should be the next James Bond!

What we would encourage you to do if you do fancy placing something of a speculative bet on who will be the next actor to play James Bond is pay a quick visit to, by doing so you will find a listing of the most trusted betting sites, all of which offer high valued welcome betting bonuses, payout quickly when you win and have some of the most diverse betting opportunities anywhere online!

You will of course need to know the current odds on those actors, actresses and other people who you would never dream of becoming the next 007 are, and with that in mind we will take a look below at the current red hot favourites to replace Craig, and also take a look at some of the more unlikely people to take over from him!

To start with let’s see some of the more ridiculous and outrageous people some betting companies are offering odds on to become the next James Bond.  There are four people who all have odds of 500 to 1 attached to them and they are a mix of sports stars, politicians and singers, those being Robbie Williams, P. Diddy, William Hague and David Beckham!

Whilst there is probably no chance what so ever of any of the above people replacing Daniel there are some people who are at the top of the betting markets that are having some quite substantial amounts placed on them.

The four people who may just land the role, and it will be a very profitable role of course include Tom Hardy whose odds are 4/1, Aidan Turner whose odds are 5/1 as are the odds associated with Idris Elba, and someone else attracting a lot of money include Tom Hiddleston whose odds are currently a fairly generous 6/1.

Now do keep in mind betting companies are not stupid and as such the very second it becomes public knowledge who the next actor will be to replace Daniel Craig their betting markets will be suspended and then closed, so if you do fancy placing such a bet get your bets placed sooner rather than later.

It is however also worth considering placing a  bet on a woman to replace Craig, for there is no guarantees that a man has to play that role, and with that in mind let us now move on to giving you an overview of some women who are mention on quite a number of betting site betting markets!

You will get some massive payout even when betting just a small amount of cash if you place a bet on Helen Mirren landing the role for her current odds are huge at some 175/1, however those odds do of course reflect her chances! If you fancy the chances of Gillian Anderson landing the role the odds attached to her are currently 90/1!

If you do have an interest in both Hollywood, movies in general or anything to do with actors then always keep in mind you will find plenty of unique betting opportunities when you look for them online, and many betting sites offer a range of daily novelty bets.

Just make sure you do not get too tempted by some of the enormous odds being offered one some of those novelty and unusual betting opportunities, for the odds available are always going to reflect the chances of those bets winning!

You will also find that there are quite a number of betting sites that will give you a free no risk type of bet when you sign up to their betting sites and as such if you do fancy having a weird or whacky type of bet then consider making use of some of those free bets, as they will not cost you anything to make use of them, and you never know, with some luck you may just win!

Josh Hartnett Reflects On His Decision To Turn Down Batman Begins

21 June 2017 3:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Perhaps more so than any other category in Hollywood cinema, when it comes to casting, the superhero genre is filled with remarkable stories of near misses and almosts. Think of how close Tom Cruise came to landing the role of Iron Man, or Tom Hiddleston testing for Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, before ultimately landing the role of his scheming step-sibling, Loki.

When it comes to the Caped Crusader, one actor that came awfully close to donning the cape and cowl is Josh Hartnett. Back when Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy was still in its infancy, Hartnett was linked with the title role in Batman Begins, but as is often the case, was ultimately forced to pass up the opportunity due to issues with scheduling.

For Josh Hartnett, losing out on the chance to play Gotham’s Dark Knight wasn’t even the biggest disappointment; instead, the actor laments his decision to pass up the opportunity to collaborate with Christopher Nolan.

Per AP:

I would welcome the opportunity to be in a relationship with a great artist in our film culture, no matter where they’re making films. In that instance, I think my regret mostly was not forming the friendship or the creative partnership with that director, more than it was [not] doing Batman.

It’s a missed opportunity that Hartnett has spoken about in the past, and here, the Black Hawk Down actor goes on record to clarify previous comments.

It wasn’t about not doing studio films. At the time, what I was interested in was… the film that I did instead of that was a tiny film about a guy with Asperger’s Syndrome, falling in love with a woman with Asperger’s Syndrome. It was a true story, Mozart And The Whale. It was more a question of what I wanted to do as opposed to what I didn’t want to do, and I always try to look at things that way.

As for Warner Bros. and Ben Affleck’s muscly new incarnation of The Batman, he’ll help form the mighty Justice League when Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s long-anticipated ensemble movie swoops into theatres on November 17th. »

Avengers: Infinity War Has “A Lot More Villains” Than Just Thanos

19 June 2017 11:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos will finally step out of the shadows and take on the combined forces of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. After various teaser appearances and cameos dating all the way back to 2012’s The Avengers, there’s a lot of hype for the Mad Titan and he’s set to be the biggest, baddest enemy the heroes of the Marvel universe have ever faced. Apparently, though, he won’t be the only threat that Cap, Iron Man, Thor and the rest of the gang have to go up against in the film.

At the Supanova Comic-Con in Sydney, Australia, this weekend, the God of Thunder himself, Chris Hemsworth, hinted at how formidable and intimidating Thanos will be as an antagonist – but also revealed that he won’t be the only villain the Avengers will need to deal with next year in Infinity War. 

We all should be very afraid of Thanos. »

Chris Hemsworth says the final Infinity Stone will be introduced very soon

19 June 2017 2:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

So far, the buildup to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes taking on Thanos in an all-out battle for the ages throughout the two-part Avengers: Infinity War has seen the introduction of four of the five Infinity Stones (the Space Stone made its debut first in Captain America: The First Avenger, followed by the Loki’s scepter containing the Mind Stone in The Avengers, the Reality Stone in Thor: The Dark World, the Power Stone in Guardians of the Galaxy, with the latest reveal being the Eye of Agamotto/the Time Stone in Doctor Strange).

The fifth and final stone – the Soul Stone – used to piece together Thanos’ ultimate weapon, aptly named the Infinity Gauntlet, is apparently set to make an appearance “real soon” according to Thor himself Chris Hemsworth, who made the announcement during a fan Q&A session over the weekend at Australia’s Supernova Comic-Con.

Thor’s roommate Darryl will not appear in Thor: Ragnarok

19 June 2017 12:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For those who may be unaware, Marvel created a series of comedic shorts titled Team Thor, explaining the God of Thunder’s absence from last year’s colossal superhero showdown Captain America: Civil War [watch them here and here]. During the shorts, the Avenger moved into an apartment and found himself a roommate named Darryl, who became quite the fan favorite hit over the course of the sketches.

Unfortunately for fans of Darryl, at Australia’s Supernova Comic-Con, Chris Hemsworth has revealed that the character will not be making an appearance in this November’s highly anticipated final pre-Avengers: Infinity War McU entry Thor: Ragnarok. A Twitter user at the convention relayed the news by stating the following:

Chris confirms that Daryl will Not appear in Ragnarok. Possibly in Infinity War though… #ChrisHemsworth #Supanova

Blind Date 2017: is dating TV still innocent enough?

Jamie Andrew Jun 16, 2017

Can lovely, innocent Blind Date really exist in the same tawdry world as Take Me Out?

Blind Date is coming back this weekend. So much has changed since the 1980s, both on TV and in society itself, that what returns to our screens may not be a straight-forward, fully-intact teleport of the format, but rather a mutant mish-mash: a half-fly Jeff Goldblum of a show just begging to be put out of its misery. The truth of this inevitable transformation can be seen in the steps already taken up the light-entertainment evolutionary ladder, most notably in the DNA of ITV's long-running post-Blind Date offering, Take Me Out

Ben Wheatley’s Crossover Moment: How a British Genre Director Became an International Auteur With ‘Sightseers’

14 June 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The following is excerpted from a chapter in film critic Adam Nayman’s new book “Ben Wheatley: Confusion and Carnage,” which is now available.

“Nobody fucks with you like [Ben] Wheatley,” wrote Cinema Scope’s Robert Koehler in a dispatch filed from Cannes in 2012, the year that “Sightseers” premiered in the Director’s Fortnight and shifted the critical perception of its director to a global figure. If Cannes is historically the proving ground for auteur directors, then the presence of “Sightseers” on the Croisette suggested that Wheatley was emerging from his niche as a UK genre specialist. For Koehler, “Sightseers” was one of the titles at Cannes that seemed “eager to play outside boundaries within which most of the other films were all too willing to contain themselves.”

Trying to break away from the everyday—or, put another way, the search for transcendence—is the secret theme of “Sightseers,” a film that, »

The beginner’s guide to Wittertainment

14 June 2017 1:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Catherine Pearson Jun 21, 2017

All you need to know about Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo’s Film Review show...

Hello to Jason.

See related  Dwayne Johnson headlining Big Trouble In Little China remake Big Trouble In Little China remake: John Carpenter not consulted Big Trouble In Little China: Kurt Russell on the remake Zu: the movie that inspired Big Trouble In Little China

The term ‘Wittertainment’ was originally coined by a fan of Kermode And Mayo’s Film Review radio show and podcast on BBC Radio 5 Live. Easily mistaken for a nod to Mark and Simon’s sharp and witty banter, the term in fact comes from the continual on-air wittering of the pair. It is truly the bromance of the modern age.

The witterings of film critic and double bass extraordinaire Mark Kermode and radio giant and novelist Simon Mayo are the highlight of this glorious show, a show that they frequently remind listeners is not, in fact, about film at all. Just like Jaws is not about a shark. Confused? Most likely. Allow me to introduce you into the vast, colourful and friendly listenership of the hugely popular radio show that recently won the British Podcast Awards’ ‘Listeners’ Choice’ award, a trophy that Simon frequently reminds Mark on air that they ought to be sharing.

The Church of Wittertainment

Fans of Kermode And Mayo’s Film Review are better known as members of the Church of Wittertainment and the show devotes a great deal of time to catching up with their listenership. Letters from listeners, or rather ‘Wittertainees’, have led to the coining of new Wittertainment slang (Gerrard Butler now goes by ‘Shut Up Butt Wot’ after a listener explained her child’s mishearing of the actor’s name), lively debate around the latest film releases and some funny, fascinating and truly moving stories. Simon’s considerate and empathetic reading of fan letters makes Wittertainment more than a two-man show with a bunch o’ film reviews; it’s a family.

Emails to the show feature all sorts, from thanking the show for its assistance during an operation or marathon to requesting a small corner of the Church for the practise of one’s own faith, occupation or tendency to be female pipe smoker (apparently it’s a rare thing). Following an architect’s blue print of the ‘Witterthedral’ that was sent in to the show, it is now possible to view the different areas of the Church in its large, W-shaped building, including ‘Clergy Corner’, ‘Humanist Hollow’ and the ‘Transgender Transept’. Fan contributions in 2016 saw the creation of the country of Wittertania complete with (scarily legitimate looking) passports and even a national anthem. A number of emails are also sent in to ask for Mark and Simon’s advice on film and life choices and, more recently, to report WRIs.

What is a Wri, you ask? It is just one of the many acronyms Wittertainment correspondence can contain, the most frequent being:

Ltl: long-term listener.

Stl: short-term listener.

Fte: first-time emailer.

Wri: a Wittertainment related injury, often the result of a sudden outburst of laughter or Mark suddenly banging his hand on the desk, putting headphone-wearers at considerable risk.

Aals: Altitude Adjusted Lachrymosity Syndrome. Have you ever noticed that you have a greater tendency to cry at films whilst on a plane? You’re not alone... and it’s something to do with the cabin pressure.

In the last year, emails from Church members have frequently opened with ‘wassup’: a phrase Simon often begins the podcast with, asking Mark “wassup with your bad self?” Other phrases you are likely to hear in the course of the show include ‘two-d’ and ‘threed’ (a much more efficient, and let’s face it cooler, way of saying 2D and 3D), ‘tinkety tonk old fruit and down with the Nazis’ (a sign-off adopted by correspondents after it came to light that the Queen Mother ended all of her wartime letters with this phrase) and, of course, ‘Hello to Jason Isaacs’.

Friends and features of the show

Go to Google and search for Jason Isaacs. Have a look at what appears at the top of the search results page. There you go, proof if ever you needed it that everyone is a fan of Wittertainment. It has become Wittertainment tradition to say ‘hello to’ the famous friends of the show, with Jason taking top billing as he was a schoolmate of Mark’s. Also, like everyone who is a friend of the show, he’s just an all-around top guy. Among the other famous names who receive a ‘hello’ are Stephen Fry, David Morrissey, Tom Hanks, Sanjeev Baskar and more recently the lovely Tom Hiddleston, with some of these film review friends having taken to the microphones when the men themselves are on the cruise (see ‘The Wittertainment Cruise’).

The weekly Wittertainment podcast will always open with some Class A wittering. More often than not, Mark is unaware that Simon – or the eagle-eyed and much loved Producer Robin – has clicked the record button and will ask if the podcast has started, followed by any excuse to bring up The Comsat Angels. In the course of the show, you can expect the ‘Top 10’ (a relatively short and comprehensive overview of the top 10 films at the Box Office and Mark’s opinions of them), a selection of film reviews from Mark interspersed with fan emails and a celebrity interview with Simon. The show is rounded off with Mark’s ‘Film of the Week’, ‘TV Movie of the Week’ and ‘DVD of the Week’, the latter even having its own theme music to which Mark and Simon have taken to chuckling over before fans attempt to guess Mark’s choice. The fun and shenanigans also continues beyond this flagship film review show as Wittertainment has its finger on the pulse with Facebook, Twitter, a “Snaptat” account and even a ‘Wittr’ app. Designed by a dedicated listener, the app and enables listeners to geo-locate fellow Wittertainees all around the globe. Mark and Simon initially stressed that they are not affiliated with this app, before admitting that it fuels their now extremely opulent lifestyles and has brought them wealth beyond their wildest dreams.

The Code of Conduct

Whilst Wittertainment is a very inclusive show, there are a few rules. All the best groups have them. For Mark and Simon, there are strict cinema-going rules that can be downloaded and affixed to a feature wall here. Love film but hate the disruptions that ruin the experience? So do Mark and Simon. Encountering a Code of Conduct-abiding screening is such a rare delight and, alas, you cannot claim to be a true member of the Church unless you consistently follow these cinema guidelines. Highlights include not using the cinema as a babysitter, no knitting during a film, no foraging of any kind and Turning Off Your Phone. If you would like to see Mark and Simon’s bad selves explain the Code of Conduct in their own words, follow this link. Soft rolls with no filling all around!

Things that Mark and Simon like

For those unfamiliar to the show, Mark Kermode may be best known for his rants. It is true that when Mark hates a film he does not hold back (we all know the Sex And The City 2 and Pirates Of The Caribbean 3 reviews), but his attitude towards film and his overall outlook is very optimistic. He will only unleash his signature Kermodian rants on the most deserving of film subjects and ultimately wants to enjoy what he is about to watch, whether that involves a comedy film passing his ‘6 Laughs Test’ or a drama moving him to tears.

Mark likes Manchester (he went to university there), The Exorcist (his favourite film of all time) and flapping his hands in cinema-induced excitement. Simon likes Warwick (he went to university there), doing creepy voices to scare Mark and putting on a different jumper to transform himself into Peter from Germany (a confession of his childhood alter-ego that was met with much hilarity). The pair are apparently never happier than when they are in possession of a ‘fart gun’: a toy from the film Despicable Me 2 that they can be heard firing at one another whilst giggling “hehehe Bottom” in the style of the mischievous yellow Minions. The pair also enjoy chatting about their joint-family holidays and the antics of their spouses; for Mark ‘the good lady professor her indoors’ and for Simon ‘the good lady ceramicist her indoors’.

Mark frequently mentions his other favourite films, including Mary Poppins and Dougal And The Blue Cat as well as a film that he tracked down from his childhood cinema-going experience, Jeremy. Mark wants Simon to see Jeremy. Simon doesn’t fancy seeing Jeremy. The jury is still out as to whether the Good Doctor (a nickname for Mark whose Phd was on horror fiction) has managed to convince Simon to see what, in his view, is a cinematic masterpiece. For Simon, the name Jeremy is met with the same disdain as the long-running and somewhat stale joke about an iPod being referred to as a ‘fruit-based device’. Mark also has a tendency to sigh, or even just pause briefly, before he is about to give a review of a film, something Simon has recognised to be a sign of a negative review on the way. The pair have also become quite adept at signalling when Producer Robin will begin to play a track of birdsong to censor their witterings, something that has happened on the podcast on a few occasions during these tumultuous political times.

The Wittertainment Cruise

How do you get tickets for the cruise? You just get tickets for the cruise. It might be worth explaining that this approach is integral to the Wittertainment philosophy. It’s very simple to do something; you just do it. In this spirit, it is very easy to get the cruise to stop at your port of choice because you just get Mark and Simon to pull the cruise liner over.

For full details of previous guests and embarkation points it is worth consulting the Witterpedia page on the Cruise. For those of you who are completely confused, I don’t want to say that the cruise is not a real event per se, just that you might find it more fun if you use your imagination. When Mark and Simon take their summer holiday and leave us bereft of their on-air company for at least a couple of weeks, fear not, because it means that the Wittertainment Cruise is coming to a port near you! Mark and Simon are very flexible about stop-offs and also promise everyone a go at taking the helm. The cruise is bursting at the seams with Code of Conduct-abiding screenings of the latest flicks, celebrity faces and activities that include quoits, shuffleboard and a limbo competition. Simon is the current reigning limbo champion having defeated the affectionately nicknamed Sir Ken Chuckles Branagh.

It is little wonder that Wittertainment is such a long-running, astronomical success. Not only do Mark and Simon really know their stuff, they’re very humble and infinitely generous to their listeners. Whilst Kermode And Mayo’s Film Review is theirs, Wittertainment is a community that they built with their listenership. If you love film, you’ll love this radio show and podcast, but chances are you’ll fall for this show anyway. On top of the expert film criticism and all of the shenanigans, Wittertainment has a great deal of heart, and sometimes all you need is to hear Mark’s trademark reassuring phrase: “Everything is going to be alright.” »

How Universal Should Solve Its Dark Universe Problem

12 June 2017 9:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: With “The Mummy” opening to mostly negative reviews this weekend, Universal’s attempt to kickstart its “Dark Universe” franchise is stuck in a rut. What would you do (or recommend the studio do) to make good movies out of Universal’s classic monsters?

Violet Lucca (@unbuttonmyeyes), Film Comment

The obvious response is “don’t try,” but since we’re a few years away from getting back to using original intellectual property in film, I’ll give them a few options.

One: ditch the self-seriousness of the modern action blockbuster and revive the genre mashup of the “Abbott and Costello Meet…” series. Get Channing Tatum »

Chris Evans talks Avengers: Infinity War and why he agreed to an “extra” film

Author: Scott Davis

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues apace with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 now standing at $828million at the worldwide box office and the first glimpse of the eagerly-anticipated Black Panther released this weekend, attention will soon turn to the big “finale” that is Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel.

Captain America star Chris Evans sees his six-film contract with Marvel expire after Infinity War but speaking to The Telegraph, the actor said that when the studio told him the plan with the final film in splitting it into two films, he agreed to do them both, saying:

“I had six films in my Marvel contract, so I could have said after the third ‘Avengers‘ I was done, but they wanted to make the third and fourth Avengers films as a two-parter,” he explained. “They said they had so many other characters to fit in – Guardians of the Galaxy, »
