James Bond, and the perils of casting a new 007

12 October 2016 10:21 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Oct 14, 2016

With the question of who's playing James Bond in James Bond 25 unresolved, we look back at the casting conundrums 007 has faced before.

Since 1962, fewer men have played James Bond than have walked on the moon. Despite the relatively long turnaround of the role, the subject of who might follow in the footsteps of Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig in the future has fuelled many column inches and tabloid splashes.

It feels as if speculation about the seventh 007 in Eon Productions' long-lived spy franchise has been at fever pitch since this time last year, when Craig was doing the promotional rounds for Spectre and commented that he would rather “slash [his] wrists” than play Bond again. It's only after a year of constant reports on the subject that his far more optimistic comments at last weekend's New Yorker Festival »

A Cinema Retro Report: Daniel Craig Talks James Bond, Othello, "Blade Runner" And "Star Wars"

8 October 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

This Story Has Been Updated With Craig's Comments About The Bourne Films. 

By Lee Pfeiffer

Last evening Daniel Craig took to the stage for a  90 minute interview as part of the New Yorker Festival, sponsored by the legendary magazine. The interview took place at New York's School Visual Arts. Craig, who is not known to be enamored of engaging in interviews, was clearly in a feisty and humorous mood and attributed his presence at the event as a sign of his long-standing respect for the New Yorker magazine. The wide-ranging discussion covered a multitude of topics with the predominant subject unsurprisingly being James Bond.  Craig was sporting a bleached blonde crew cut for a forthcoming role that made him bare a resemblance to the legendary Bond villain Red Grant, played memorably by Robert Shaw in "From Russia With Love". He was dressed casually in jeans, sneakers and a leather jacket »

Spectre: one year on, where's it left the James Bond series?

29 September 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Oct 10, 2016

There’s little sign of a new James Bond film yet, and Spectre has left lots of questions behind. So what now, 007?

Update: here's a story that landed this morning, of relevance to this article.

This article contains light spoilers for Spectre.

At the end of October 2015, the 24th James Bond film, Spectre, enjoyed its global premiere. Following the massive success of Skyfall, hopes were understandably high for Spectre, and it quickly notched up some strong – and not so strong – reviews. Originally rumoured to be the first of a two part story (with a suggestion that it be filmed back to back with James Bond 25), Spectre would prove to be a big box office hit too. As Bond drove off into the sunset at the end of the film, the next adventure was surely an inevitability.

But something wasn’t quite right. And one year later, »

Review: "Masters Of Venus" (1962) Region 2 DVD Release From The BFI

26 July 2016 3:48 AM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Tim Greaves

Between the early 1950s and mid 1980s the Children's Film Foundation was a non-profit making establishment behind dozens of films aimed at a young audience, most of them screening as programme constituents at Saturday morning 'Picture Shows'. I didn't catch many of these during my own childhood. But I do recall a couple of particularly enjoyable ones that I did get to see in the early 1970s: Cry Wolf (1969) and All at Sea (1970), both of which are conspicuously absent from the half dozen or so collections issued on DVD to date. Many of the Cff’s films had a run-time of around an hour, although there were also a number of serials in their catalogue. Masters of Venus was one such production. Comprising eight 15-minute instalments, it arrives on DVD in the UK in a restored release from BFI.

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) »

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, »

James Bond 007: revisiting Spectre

24 January 2016 6:14 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




We complete our series looking back at the James Bond movies, with a detailed look at Spectre, starring Daniel Craig...

This article contains big spoilers for Spectre and Star Trek Into Darkness.

Daniel Craig’s fourth or Roger Moore’s eighth? The former of course but you get the point. The almost-realistic stylings of early Craig have given way to the full blown pantomime excess of mid-Moore (or late Connery, in fairness). Desert lairs, endless car chases, free-wheelin’ helicopters and indestructible airplanes are all very much back in vogue. The result is a largely enjoyable, extremely silly film which attempts to tie previous Craig outings together at the expense of consistency and logic. There isn’t a plot: more a succession of scenes stitched together. And it still can’t manage a decent finale! Fun but ultimately frivolous. Now who does that remind me of?

Everything Steven Soderbergh Watched and Read in 2015

6 January 2016 11:21 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Displaying a transparency that few filmmakers of his fame and / or caliber would even bother with, Steven Soderbergh has, for a couple of years, been keen on releasing lists of what he watched and read during the previous twelve months. If you’re at all interested in this sort of thing — and why not? what else are you even doing with your day? — the 2015 selection should be of strong interest, this being a time when he was fully enmeshed in the world of creating television.

He’s clearly observing the medium with a close eye, be it what’s on air or what his friends (specifically David Fincher and his stillborn projects) show him, and how that might relate to his apparent love of 48 Hours Mystery or approach to a comparatively light slate of cinematic assignments — specifically: it seems odd that the last time he watched Magic Mike Xxl, a »

At H.M. Defence Research, a world leading defence organization located in England, Dr. Hendrix Baar, at the invitation of H.M.’s head Tom Thorp, is about to perform a test on a new combat suit baptized the Phoenix Project, a state of the art military uniform that protects from bullets and grenades and emanates great heat in the process. However, Thorp’s brainwashed personal secretary Margo Arden allows an uninvited guest in, the latter sabotaging the event, killing Dr. Baar and destroying the highly coveted suit in the process.
