President Obama aligns with the people, names 'Boyhood' the best film of 2014

18 December 2014 5:52 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In politics, a Presidential endorsement can be the magic touch, imbuing a candidate with exposure and voter confidence. Does the same hold true in the Oscar race? The team behind "Boyhood" hopes so. Speaking to People Magazine (via The Huffington Post), President Obama revealed that he fell hard for the Richard Linklater’s 12-years-in-the-making, coming-of-age film. And he was kind of a quote-whore about it. "'Boyhood was a great movie," Obama told the magazine. “That, I think, was my favorite movie this year.” Is it too late to send out guild screeners emblazoned with that quote? Obama is, traditionally, a softy when it comes to movies and television. When People put him on the spot with the same question in 2012, the President named "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "Life of Pi" and "Argo" as his favorites. He has told the press that "Modern Family" and "Parks and Recreation" are family favorites. »

Belvedere Vodka Backs James Bond Film ‘Spectre’

16 December 2014 10:32 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

James Bond’s shaken, not stirred martini will be made with Belvedere Vodka in the British spy’s next film, “Spectre.”

The Polish spirits brand will back the new film with a considerable marketing campaign — its largest ever for a film, and most expensive global effort to promote its vodka, the company said.

Vodka maker Smirnoff had previously been featured in the 007 series. It was the first vodka brand to appear in the Bond films, starting with “Dr. No” in 1962. Finlandia also has appeared in the films.

The company behind Bond’s beverage of choice is considered a small but important role in the series — and one that a marketer can use to its advantage — given that the Vesper martini has been featured in most of the 23 films of the franchise. “Spectre” is the 24th.

Belvedere’s campaign will include PR, events and traditional advertising, including TV, in-theater and digital ads. »

Before 'Spectre,' Revisiting James Bond's Theme Music to Date

5 December 2014 1:01 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Thursday’s big announcement for the 24th James Bond movie — Spectre, to be directed by Skyfall’s Sam Mendes, and once again featuring Daniel Craig as the British super spy — sadly lacked details of the most important element of any Bond movie. No, not the Bond girl. The Bond theme. From Dr. No on, each Bond movie has had a distinctive theme that attempts to set the stage for what’s to come. At their best, the songs are as dramatic and exciting as the movies themselves, but… well, let’s just say that not every song is at its best and leave

How the New James Bond Movie ‘Spectre’ Is Targeting Marvel Fans

4 December 2014 3:56 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Over the past 50 years, the James Bond movies have tapped into public fears, popular culture and what’s worked at the box office.

The Cuban missile crisis inspired “Dr. No,” and the Cold War was felt throughout the earlier films in the franchise, with Russians playing many of the bad guys. “Star Wars” and the launch of the space shuttle program influenced “Moonraker.” The success of the “Bourne Identity” films encouraged producers to make the stunts and fight sequences grittier in “Casino Royale.” And Rupert Murdoch was essentially the villain in “Tomorrow Never Dies,” while Javier Bardem played a pseudo-Julian Assange in 2012’s “Skyfall.”

With next year’s “Spectre,” however, an old foe is being brought back to the series — one that will seem very familiar to fans of Marvel’s comicbooks and movies.

Spectre, a shadowy terrorist organization has served as the looming menace in many of the 23 Bond films to date, »

‘Spectre’ Speculation: What We All Think We Know About the Next James Bond Movie

4 December 2014 1:23 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This morning, the next James Bond installment went from being known as “Bond 24″ to having an actual title we can sort of hold on to. And also wonder about. The movie, which is being helmed by Skyfall director Sam Mendes, is now called Spectre, which should probably always be capitalized as it’s the acronym name of the franchise’s most notable villainous organization. For more than 50 years, since the Ian Fleming novels, Spectre has stood for “SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion,” and their shadowy existence has been either prominently featured or in the background of many of the 007 movies, beginning with the first, Dr. No. The current reboot of the screen franchise with Daniel Craig as Bond had seemed to be purposefully avoiding the organization, with a similar group known as Quantum being invented for the series instead. In fact, it was intentionally, having to do with a copyright dispute going back »

Spectrevision: The Complete Ranking of All James Bond Titles

4 December 2014 12:56 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A Bond title must convey many elements of the Bond formula in just a few brief words. Glamour, danger, sexiness, international locations!  Try coming up with three words that capture all these. Some Bond titles have done this amazingly well.  Today, the 007 folks took a stab at with just one little word when they unveiled the title of the upcoming 24th installment in the series: “Spectre.” How does the latest name stack up?  Here’s our complete ranking of Bond titles through the years: 24. Quantum of Solace “Placeholder of Something” wasn’t available? 23. Octopussy There are people who think this is the best named Bond film. We’re very glad we don’t know any of those people. 22. Goldeneye All that is gold does not glitter.  Time for Mr. Bond to get a new favorite color. 21. Tomorrow Never Dies And I hear the sun will come out then too.  And hey, »

Christoph Waltz, Léa Seydoux join Daniel Craig for Bond 24

4 December 2014 7:36 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

This morning at the Bond 24 press conference, it was officially announced that the upcoming Daniel Craig-starrer will be entitled “Spectre.”

For Bond fans, this is jump-out-of-your-seat, hold-the-phone news. Spectre was the criminal organization which first appeared in Dr. No (1962), and stands for the “Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion.” Yes, you read that right. Their name includes "revenge." They also have a fondness for naming their members in a numerical system. Though Q (Ben Wishaw), M (Ralph Fiennes), and the rest of MI6 shouldn’t make too much fun of Spectre for that.

Though speculation was insistent that Christoph Waltz would reprise the role of Blofeld (or #1), the cat-loving head of Spectre – and inspiration for Austin Powers’ Dr. Evil – Bond’s official Twitter confirmed something entirely different. Apparently, the two-time Oscar winner will play a man named “Oberhauser,” but fingers-crossed that’s a lie to throw us off. »

4 December 2014 7:23 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Sony Pictures, MGM Studios, and Eon Productions have announced highly anticipated details about the 24th James Bond movie. They made the announcement from the Bond sound stage at Pinewood Studios. The movie will be called Spectre, a teaser poster was released, and you will find more information regarding the Sam Mendes directed film below thanks to the official James Bond Twitter account that live-tweeted the big event announcement.

Returning to direct Spectre is Sam Mendes, whose Skyfall was the highest-grossing entry in the history of the Bond franchise — not to mention one of the best reviewed. »

Mendes Talks Plans For 007's "Spectre"

4 December 2014 6:58 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In the wake of the announcement this morning in the UK that "Spectre" will be the title of the next James Bond film, along with the reveal of the official cast, filmmaker Sam Mendes has briefly spoken about his plans for the film in an interview with BBC Radio.

First up, the "Skyfall" director talked about the reasons why he returned after being left "exhausted and strung out" by the last film, and how bringing back the key MI5 characters from "Skyfall" were an important part of that:

"I felt an attachment to the characters that we created in Skyfall. I felt like there was unfinished business, and that there was a lot more I could do with them once I'd kind of stepped aside and had some time off."

He says the new film will tie back in with "Skyfall" in quite a few ways, but will also have »

Breaking: Oh Jimmy! Daniel Craig Returns as 007 in "Spectre"

4 December 2014 6:29 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It wouldn't be accurate to call James Bond the mother the father of all franchises since serialized storytelling was with us since the very beginning of the recorded image. Nevertheless it does sometimes feel like James Bond pioneered the art of staying in the game. It maybe even influenced the rebooting craze long before it had a name with its continual cosmetic surgery; can you imagine how expensive it is to make Timothy Dalton look like Pierce Brosnan and then like Daniel Craig?

Daniel Craig is among the sexiest mofos on the planet but perhaps this is why he looks so beat up all the time? Either that or because people have been torturing him onscreen from the very beginning.

Case in point: This is not an image from the new Bond film but from the Cate Blanchett film Elizabeth (1998)

New Bond Film Announced as ‘Spectre’, Cast Includes David Bautista & Christoph Waltz

4 December 2014 4:02 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

At an an official reveal at England’s 007 Stage at Pinewood Studios today, director Sam Mendes addressed a crowd ahead of a seven-month shoot on his James Bond follow-up to 2012’s Skyfall. First, the video wall behind the director revealed that the upcoming Bond movie is officially titled Spectre, and Mendes followed that unveiling by announcing the film’s official cast, including both returning and new actors.

Viewable online worldwide via a livestream (courtesy of 007.com), the first character revealed was not a human, but rather a new car, the sleek, silver Aston Martin DB10. Mendes then went on to announce the official cast.

As expected, Naomie Harris (Miss Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q), Ralph Fiennes (M), and Daniel Craig (James Bond, aka 007) are all reprising their respective roles from Skyfall, with Craig taking the stage to the catchy thrum of the 007 theme song accompanied by a nice round of applause. »

Christoph Waltz Might Be Playing This Classic James Bond Villain, Here's Why

18 November 2014 10:41 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

So the rumor that caught fire last week was that two time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz has signed on for a mysterious role in Bond 24. So naturally, people think that his role is that of the film's latest villain. After all, this is the man who won his first Oscar playing famed "Jew Hunter" Col. Hans Landa. Django Unchained or not, Waltz made his first great impression as an antagonist, and a brilliant one at that. This just makes us think that if Waltz is going to be a baddie in the Bond franchise, he's probably going to be the greatest baddie of all: Ernst Stavro Blofeld. A little background for the uninitiated, Ernst Stavro Blofeld ran the criminal organization Spectre, a shorthand acronym for "Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion." Blofeld's organization was behind the evil plots showcased in Dr. No all the way through »

15 Crazy Facts You Just Have To Accept To Enjoy The James Bond Franchise

17 November 2014 6:50 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

MGM

The James Bond series is one of the most prolific, iconic and financially successful movie franchises ever made, kicking off in 1962 with the Sean Connery-starring Dr. No and instantly becoming a firm mainstay of the cinematic calendar, with Bond 24 set to start shooting next month.

With its suave protagonist, sexy femme fatales, exotic locales, imposing villains, exciting action, witty sense of humour and fun gadgets, the Bond films are all about entertainment above all else, and though the formula is pretty well-worn by now, the recent Daniel Craig reboot series has at least found a few ways to reinvigorate the template for a new generation.

That said, being a Bond fan can be a tad trying at times: for all of the series’ brilliant highs, it also suffers from its dated moments, be it social norms from the 60s that aren’t especially appropriate today, or simply »
