The iconic Scottish actor best known for playing James Bond turns 85 today!

There's something about this Oscar-winning actor. Yes, he's handsome and has that Scottish accent we all love, but there's something else. He's got that lasting star power about him - a real Hollywood icon.

So in honour of Sean Connery's birthday, we've put together a list of some of our favourite of his roles! 1. The Hunt for Red October This 1990 spy thriller is about the Red October, a nuclear soviet submarine whose captain (played by Connery) breaks rank and decides on his own command to take the submarine to Us waters! What are his intentions? To defect, or launch a missile attack?  Well, that's up to CIA analyst Jack Ryan (played by Alec Baldwin) to discover the truth. »

Things that happened on Nicole Kidman's Birthday over the years

20 June 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On this day in history as it relates to the movies...

1893 Lizzie Borden acquitted of the axe murders of her dad and stepmom but everyone still thinks she did it. I still haven't seen that show where Christina Ricci played her. Oops.

1905 Lillian Hellman, playwright and screenwriter is born. 

1909 Swashbuckler supreme Errol Flynn is born

1910 Fanny Brice debuts in "Ziegfeld Follies". The moment was recreated (see photo above from the Academy's archives) and heavily fictionalized of course, in Barbra Streisand's Funny Girl (1968)

1915 Director Terence Young is born. Goes on to kick off the Bond franchise with Dr. No, From Russia With Love, and Thunderball and direct Audrey Hepburn to her last Oscar nomination for Wait Until Dark (1967)

1928 Martin Landau is born. 66 years, 9 months, and 7 days he wins a well-deserved Oscar for Ed Wood (1994) »

Hammer hits one out of the park with this 'ripping good' Sherlock Holmes tale, tilted heavily toward gothic mystery and horror.

The Hound of the Baskervilles Blu-ray Twilight Time Limited Edition 1959 / Color / 1:66 widescreen / 86 min. / Ship Date June 14, 2016 / available through Twilight Time Movies / 29.95 Starring Peter Cushing, André Morell, Christopher Lee, Marla Landi, David Oxley, Francis De Wolff, Miles Malleson, Ewen Solon. Cinematography Jack Asher Production Designer Bernard Robinson Film Editor Alfred Cox Original Music James Bernard Written by Peter Bryan from the novel by Arthur Conan Doyle Produced by Michael Carreras & Anthony Hinds Directed by Terence Fisher

James Bond: Live Or Let Die?

15 June 2016 5:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The British Secret Service Agent, James Bond, has been gracing our silver screens for over half a century. The Eon-produced film franchise currently consists of 24 movies and has generated more than $7 billion in box office receipts. It is, for many, an international institution – much parodied, but never duplicated. Bond is struggling, however, and a quick glance at the bigger picture makes it clear why.

The character of Bond – 007, if you will – was created in 1953 by the writer Ian Fleming. The fictional spy featured in 12 of his novels and 2 of his short story collections before Fleming died in 1964. Since his passing, 8 other authors have written official James Bond stories to continue his narrative.

The first film – Dr. No – arrived in 1962, with Sean Connery in the title role. It was a surprise hit and launched the franchise – establishing many of the plot and technical elements that have become synonymous with the Bond series. Gadgets, exotic locations, outlandish action, noteworthy music, stylized credit sequences and ‘Bond Girls’ – this is the formula, and Dr. No set the stage for the next 50 years.

More News From The Web

But, if we take an honest look at the 23 films that followed, have we gained anything from the Bond franchise, or have we actually seen the same thing repeated two dozen times? Sure, there have been minor fluctuations. James Bond actually fell in love twice – with Teresa di Vicenzo in 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, and with Vesper Lynd in 2006’s Casino Royale – but those characters were quickly killed off in favour of maintaining the status quo. That status quo is of a highly trained secret agent thwarting the nefarious plans of villains while being enigmatic, suave and (more often than not) emotionally unavailable.

James Bond is the quintessential white male fantasy. He uses his gadgets, drives cool cars, travels widely, has sex with lots of women and saves the day. Each film sees him move unhindered through the landscape – always having a plan, always having the answer, and always having a collection of female characters back in the office, and in the field, facilitating his actions. But, here’s the problem – it’s no longer 1962. »

Rolex in the Movies: The Action Timepiece

10 June 2016 7:16 AM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

It’s the most celebrated, the most special, the most significant watch of all time; Rolex is symbolic of many things in the movies: style, wealth, attitude, and perhaps most importantly, taste. That is not to say a Rolex is elitist, but rather that the wearer on screen, anyone from James Bond to Steve McQueen, is someone possessed of the knowledge that there is no better. Rolex is the pinnacle.

The history of Rolex on film is not nearly as interesting as the scope of its wearers and how this simple act of either discreet or ostentatious display can define character. Take James Bond, a man whose breeding was forced upon him; he developed taste and nurtured it. Roger Moore’s incarnation of 007, the most overlooked style wise, is 100% a Rolex customer – even if his custom Submariner in Live and Let Die (1971) was modified somewhat by Q Branch. Sorry, but »

Amongst the contestants is Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert), who fought his first battle in 1536 on the highlands of Scotland, swordsman Ramirez (Sean Connery) who mentored MacLeod and taught him the ways of the immortals, and the evil and brutal barbarian The Kurgan (Clancy Brown).

Who Should Direct the Next James Bond Film? And What Should the Series Become?

29 May 2016 9:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It says a lot about where the James Bond series has been over the last few years that yesterday’s announcement by director Sam Mendes — that he is stepping down from the franchise after having directed two entries — was greeted by Bond fans from around the world with something less than a collective cry of dismay. Opinion will differ as to the sort of job Mendes did (some believe that “Skyfall” was a Bondian apotheosis; this critic did not), but one thing should be clear: After four films with Daniel Craig, in what was meant to be not just a “reboot” or “relaunch” but a veritable reimagining of Bond for the 21st century, the series, overall, has not truly lived up to that billing. And that’s a serious fumble, since the kickoff film of the new era, “Casino Royale” (2006), was a Bondian apotheosis. I’m not alone in thinking »

Who should direct / star in the next Bond?

28 May 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

In not surprising news, Sam Mendes is moving on from the 007 franchise after Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015). Daniel Craig is probably moving on, too, but rumors about who will replace him are, as ever, premature. The names floating about this time are Idris Elba and Tom Hiddleston (wishful fan thinking, maybe, since the internet has been suggesting these two names forever) and 30 year old Jamie Bell which is an interesting idea and probably not a bad one. If chosen he'd be the youngest Bond since Sean Connery (who was 30 when he was cast for Dr. No (1962) though most subsequent Bonds have been around 40 when they started. Plus Bell is super charismatic but underused in cinema.

Though Bond films are largely regarded as producer driven and leading actor focused pictures, rather than directorial feats, the man in the chair is important. In the past the franchise has generally relied on mid level directors rather than auteurs, »

Sam Mendes is finished with James Bond. The acclaimed British director of Skyfall and Spectre said Saturday he will not helm the next installment in the popular spy series that started with Sean Connery's startling 1962 performance in Dr. No. "It was an incredible adventure, I loved every second of it," Mendes said of his five years working on the thriller franchise. "But I think it's time for somebody else." Mendes revealed his plans to step down from the film series to an audience at the Hay Festival of literature in Wales.

Actors who Almost Played Famous Roles

30 April 2016 4:14 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Did you ever see an actor/actress in a famous role and then hear later that they were not the first, or even the second choice to play the iconic part? Many of the legendary movie characters began as a vehicle for a different star than the one who we know-and-love in the part. Here are a few of the greatest examples of famous "Almosts'.

 Christopher Walken As Han Solo: George Lucas had a very hard time finding his Han Solo in Star Wars: A New Hope (1977). This character was the last of the lead figures to be cast. Lucas’ leading contender at one point was none other than Christopher Walken. Just think about the possibilities in that performance! However, a chance meeting with Harrison Ford (Who was working as a carpenter at the time) inspired Lucas to cast Ford in the part instead, which launched him into super stardom in the 80s. »

Spam

Written by Rafael Spregelburd and translated by Jean Graham-Jones

Directed by Samuel Buggeln

Presented by The Cherry Arts

Jack, Brooklyn, NYC

April 14-30, 2016

Making a performance look easy is very difficult, but the fantastic new production of Argentine playwright Rafael Spregelburd’s intricately-constructed Spam makes it look effortless. Spam, making its English-language première in a translation by the City University of New York’s Jean Graham-Jones, probes some of those boundaries and spaces between appearance and reality, especially where language is concerned. Mario Monti (Vin Knight) is a linguistics professor with an ethically questionable relationship to the work of one of his thesis students and a case of amnesia from a head wound. As the play unfolds, both he and we come to understand more about how he ended up living in a hotel room in Malta, trying to hawk Chinese-manufactured talking dolls on the beach for »

The 10 Best Opening Title Sequences in Film

5 April 2016 6:09 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Title sequences don’t have to be boring. They can be just as exciting, creative, or innovative as the films they introduce. These are our picks for the 10 best opening title sequences of feature films.

Spring is upon us, and what better way to celebrate the beginning of brighter days than to celebrate the best film beginnings of all time! Check back all month long as we look at the films with the best beginnings.

The title sequence for a film is more than a bunch of letters spelling words on a screen. A title sequence is an opportunity for a filmmaker to grab the attention of his or her audience. It’s an ideal spot to introduce musical themes, set a stylistic tone, or establish a directorial style. During the opening titles a filmmaker has the opportunity to explain a backstory, show a flashback, or even dictate the setting to the audience. »

'Florence Foster Jenkins' writer to script art thief drama 'The Duke'

5 April 2016 6:07 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Pathe announces a feature based on the true story of a retired bus driver who supposedly stole a famous painting and held the British Government to ransom.

Nicholas Martin, writer of Stephen Frears’ upcoming Florence Foster Jenkins starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant, is to pen the screenplay for another extraordinary true story titled The Duke.

Announcing the feature, Pathe also stated that the film would be produced by Nicky Bentham (The Silent Storm) of Neon Films.

Set in the early 1960s, The Duke centres on the true story of Kempton Bunton, a retired bus driver who claimed to have stolen Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from London’s National Gallery.

Bunton was enraged when the British government paid a large sum to keep the painting out of the hands of a Us art collector when so many in the UK were suffering financial hardship. He sent a ransom note saying he would return »

Laurence Harvey is a remote-controlled assassin, and Frank Sinatra seems to be under a little hypnotic influence himself... or are we just imagining it?
