He’s fast on his feet, quick with a gun, and faster with the to-die-for beauties that only existed in the swinging ’60s. The superspy exploits of Oss 117 were too big for just one actor, so meet all three iterations of the man they called Hubert Bonisseur de La Bath . . . seriously.

The James Bond movies' special relationship with America

16 September 2017 9:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Sep 19, 2017

Kingsman pulls the leg of the James Bond series - but how have the 007 films put across the relationship between Britain and the USA?

When Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service exploded into cinemas in 2015, it gave the iconic James Bond franchise much the same irreverent treatment that the director's previous Mark Millar adaptation, Kick-Ass, gave to comic book movies. Reviews focused on how the film recontextualised the familiar 007 tropes of guns, girls and gadgets through the lens of class, identity and that notorious final bum note.

In the sequel, Eggsy and the Kingsmen run up against a crime syndicate known as the Golden Circle with a little help from their American cousins, the Statesmen. It neatly shows us that American iconography plays much the same role for their opposite numbers, that liquor-themed codenames will stand in for Arthurian monikers, and most accurately of all, that »

The 10 Greatest Doctor Who Companions Of The Modern Era

6 September 2017 6:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor isn’t the only new lead coming to Doctor Who in the near future. After one last appearance in the upcoming Christmas special, current companion Pearl Mackie – who plays Bill Potts – will be vacating the show along with her Doctor Peter Capaldi, leaving the door open for a new companion to take her place.

Casting the next companion will be a tough decision for the producers as, arguably, the role of the Doctor’s best pal is the most important element of the show. It might be called Doctor Who, but it’s the companion who acts as the audiences’ eyes and ears. We experience the Doctor and his world through them. If we don’t like the companion, we can’t get into the show.

Interestingly, one report says that a very different companion will travel the universe with Doctor No. 13 – 57-year-old British comedian Bradley Walsh. »

Top Ten Movie Franchises Based on Books

16 August 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

For as long as there have been movies, there have been movies based on books. This is a look at the best movie franchises that are either based on a book or several books.

It’s one thing to have a movie that is based on a book. It happens all the time. It’s more rare to have an entire franchise of films based on a book or set of books. Over the last two decades, it seems like we have been seeing more and more franchises emerge that are based on books. This seems to be happening for a few reasons. First, Hollywood is more than ever looking for established properties on which to base films. Book, have been and always will be one of the best established properties for a movie to be based upon. Second, if the books have a big following, chances are that the »

A History Of Violence: Casino Royale thrillingly rebooted James Bond for the grim-and-gritty era

27 July 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

With A History Of Violence, Tom Breihan picks the most important action movie of every year, starting with the genre’s birth and moving right up to whatever Vin Diesel’s doing this very minute.

Casino Royale (2006)

When I started this column, I decided that the modern action movie began with Bullitt in 1968. But a strong case—maybe a stronger case—could also be made that the genre starts with 1962’s Dr. No, the first James Bond movie. The Bond movies essentially turned the action movie into a formula before it was even really a genre: An aspirational larger-than-life hero, a comic-book villain, a few showstopping set pieces, a couple of chuckles. The thrills of the Bond movies were the Saturday-morning serial types: How will our hero get out of this jam? I tend to prefer the Bullitt take on the genre: The stoic intensity, the white-knuckle »

‘Atomic Blonde’ Review: Charlize Theron Overcomes Bad Guys and the Script in Uneven Spy Thriller

27 July 2017 1:05 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Based on the best moments of “Atomic Blonde,” I would very much like to see a series of films in which Charlize Theron’s ruthless, brutal and glamorous secret agent dispatches a variety of Cold War-era enemies to the accompaniment of hit songs from the 80s. And should that series come to be, audiences can look back on “Atomic Blonde” as the erratic-but-on-to-something near miss that it is, in the same way that 007 fans honor “Dr. No” but acknowledge that “Goldfinger” was where the franchise really took flight. As a spy thriller, “Atomic Blonde” cobbles together some very familiar elements. »

Former Doctor Who Star Would Prefer If The Character Remained A Man

21 July 2017 9:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems that one former star of Doctor Who is not entirely pleased with the fact that Jodie Whittaker has been cast as the new Doctor in the British sci-fi institution –  the first time an actress has played the titular Time Lord in the show’s 54 year history.

Peter Davison – who portrayed the Fifth Doctor from 1982-84 – revealed his feelings during an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con. To be clear, Davison remarked that Whittaker was “a terrific actress” and admitted that he was probably a bit of a “dinosaur,” but he did say that he would prefer it if the Doctor remained a man.

“If I feel any doubts, it’s the loss of a role model for boys who I think Doctor Who is vitally important for. So  I feel a bit sad about that, but I understand the argument that you need to open it up.”

In response to Davison’s comments, »

EW Debuts First Photo From Upcoming Doctor Who Christmas Special

15 July 2017 3:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Before the identity of the next Doctor is revealed in a highly-anticipated announcement that’s set to take place on Sunday July 16th, let’s first look ahead to the Doctor Who Christmas special in which the new Time Lord will debut.

Even prior to the Thirteenth Doctor’s arrival, there will be two Doctors on show in this episode. That’s because Peter Capaldi will be joined in his swansong by Harry Potter star David Bradley, who will be playing the First Doctor – originally portrayed by William Hartnell from 1963-66.

We’d already seen two promo images from the special, but now, Entertainment Weekly has provided us with our first proper look via the photo below. It sees the First and Twelfth Doctors meeting in the snow – just as was glimpsed at the end of the recent season finale. The image probably comes from near the start of the episode, »

National Bikini Day Salutes Hollywood, From Raquel Welch to Judi Dench

5 July 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s National Bikini Day on July 5, celebrating Louis Reard’s 1946 invention of the swimwear (of course it would be in France!). The swimsuit wasn’t an immediate hit, though, due to 1940s standards of modesty. But pop culture helped bring it to the masses, thanks to such early-1960s icons as Brigitte Bardot, Ursula Andress, and Raquel Welch.

In 1960, the novelty song “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini,” sung by Brian Hyland, became a No. 1 hit in the U.S. and the record company said bikini sales boomed as a result. And in 1962, Andress emerged from the water in the James Bond “Dr. No,” while Bardot appeared in “A Very Private Affair,” both in small white two-piece suits. And nothing was the same after that.

In 1964, American International Pictures released “Bikini Beach,” the third of its “Beach Party” movies starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello. “Bikini Beach” featured surfers, bikers, »

Video: 6 Best Literary Adaptations

3 June 2017 4:59 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

What with so many films and tv shows being based on popular works of film and television these days, and many more of those films being based on remakes of themselves, it seems no better a time to review some of the most defining literary adaptations in all of film.

6. Dr. No (1962)

Ok, so while it may not be the most high-minded of adaptations, the first Bond film ever to be made deserves inclusion on the list if only for asserting a legacy that has endured for over half a century. As all good literary film adaptations must do, Dr. No captures the essence of its source material, distilling it into accessible visuals and dialogue and set pieces, thereby assuming ownership of Bond’s tropes by canonising them in the minds of generations of viewers. All the first and most classic Bond moments are here and, in some cases, they’re never better. »

How Roger Moore Made the Role of James Bond His Own

24 May 2017 2:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Few actors have come across quite so invincible onscreen as Roger Moore, the James Bond star who dodged death by sharks (“Live and Let Die”), yo-yo buzzsaw (“Octopussy”), space lasers (“Moonraker”) and a demented Christopher Walken (“A View to a Kill”), barely so much as creasing his tuxedo in the process.

Moore played 007 in seven movies over the course of a dozen years, dodging more bullets — golden and otherwise — than we could possibly count. But sooner or later, fate was sure to catch up with the debonair star. All men are mortal, of course, but not so Bond, who’s been saving the world since 1962 (“Dr. No”), and with his passing, Moore became the first big-screen Bond to leave us.

He was actually the third star to play the part, taking over the role from Sean Connery in 1973, and unlike Australian model George Lazenby (who played 007 just once, in “On »

25 Sizzling Bond Girls, From Ursula Andress to Monica Belluci (Photos)

A look back at all the lovely allies and femme fatales who’ve crossed paths with 007 over the years. Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder, “Dr. No” (1962) Widely regarded as the first Bond Girl, Honey Ryder’s emergence from the ocean clad in a white bikini is considered one of the most iconic moments in 007 franchise history. Eunice Gayson as Sylvia Trench, “Dr. No” (1962) & “From Russia With Love” (1963) Sylvia Trench introduced herself to James Bond as “Trench, Sylvia Trench,” which inspired him to reply with his now iconic “Bond, James Bond” phrase. She’s also the first Bond Girl to appear. »

From EW Archives: Roger Moore’s Charm in Person—and Why He Was the ‘Best Bond’

23 May 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Legendary British actor Roger Moore has died at the age of 89 after an iconic career on the silver screen — including his record time as James Bond. This 2008 interview from EW takes a look back at Moore’s career and how he became “the best Bond.”

“Can I get you a drink, Mr. Moore?”

The waiter stands there, secretly hoping that he’ll say those five words known from the beaches of Rio to the bazaars of Cairo to the ski slopes of Gstaad: Vodka martini—shaken, not stirred.

“I’ll have a…Bloody Mary.”

His family issued an announcement on Twitter: “It is with the heaviest of hearts, we must share the awful news that our father, Sir Roger Moore, passed away today. We are all devastated.”

The Best Opening Credit Sequences In Movie History — IndieWire Critics Survey

8 May 2017 1:41 PM, 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: Inspired by Baby Groot’s “Mr. Blue Sky” dance sequence at the beginning of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” what movie has the best opening credits sequence?

April Wolfe (@awolfeful), La Weekly

Hands down, it’s R.W. Fassbinder’s “The Marriage of Maria Braun.” I watch the opening sequence at least three times a year and show it to every filmmaker I can. I love any film that begins with a bang, and this one does quite literally: We open up on an explosion that rips out a hunk of brick wall, exposing a German couple in the middle of a rushed marriage ceremony. »
