James Bond's Women, Frozen in Time?

15 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Tfe welcomes back its friend and resident 007 expert Deborah with a statistical investigation brought on that recent "Spectre" press conference. If you love Bond Girls or Bellucci, and who doesn't?, read on - Editor

With the announcement earlier this month that Monica Bellucci had been cast in the forthcoming Bond film, Spectre, the media has recently been replete with headlines like “James Bond finally falls for a woman his own age” It was the oft-repeated “finally” that put me in an analytic mood. Is this really the first time (“finally”) that Bond has been with a woman his own age? How often has there been a really large age disparity?

I decided to analyze each movie so I could derive some statistics. James Bond is almost always with two or more women per film, but we can generally identify the “main” and “secondary” woman. I decided, for the sake of my own sanity, »

The top 10 James Bond deaths

16 December 2014 5:18 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From death by shark to fatal ingestion of air pellet, here's a run-down of the James Bond movies' grisliest deaths...

The James Bond franchise has entertained (most of) the whole family for generations, with one-liners like “shocking” and “I think he got the point” delivered while some poor soul is electrocuted or shot with a harpoon gun. But they were bad guys, so it was all okay.

However, regardless of how downplayed they might have been, we were shown some pretty disturbing ways to dispense with an evil henchman, the kind of thing that gave us nightmares when we were kids.

With work now underway on the latest latest Bond movie, Spectre, here's our look at the top 10 macabre ways 007 has dispatched evildoers in masterful fashion.

This feature contains spoilers for lots of James Bond films.

Spectre: 7 Predictions About The Plot

9 December 2014 2:15 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony

Forget about moustache-twirling villains, volcano bases and awfully long exchanges of dialogue between villain and secret agent: Casino Royale and Skyfall have proven that Daniel Craig’s Bond is a whole different beast to the old 007. Now that the world knows that the next Bond film is titled Spectre (those legal issues have finally been resolved), fans of the franchise the world over are all going to have the exact same image spring into their heads: a bald guy in a grey jumpsuit stroking a cat.

Sam Mendes still hasn’t confirmed the presence of Ernst Stavro Blofeld in the upcoming film, but considering that the villain’s name is synonymous with Spectre’s, there’s hardly any doubting that he will appear. But we’re in the year 2014 now, and much has changed since the days of You Only Live Twice; Bond’s world is much more grounded. »

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.

The character was vaguely introduced in From Russia With Love (1963) but we didn’t see his face until Donald Pleasence played him in You Only Live Twice in […]

'James Bond 24': Christoph Waltz Cast as Iconic Villain Blofeld?

24 November 2014 10:29 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just weeks after we reported that Christoph Waltz is playing the main villain in Bond 24, The Daily Mail claims that the actor is actually playing the classic James Bond nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld in this highly-anticipated sequel.

Eon Productions is expected to confirm Christoph Waltz's casting during a press conference to be held in the first week of December. At that time, they will announce that the actor is playing Franz Oberhauser, son of the late Hans Oberhauser, a ski instructor who was a father figure to 007 (Daniel Craig). However, one unidentified source claims that the announcement will be a misdirect, and that Christoph Waltz is actually playing Blofeld.

"Christoph Waltz is playing Blofeld in the next Bond film. The tone of the 007 films has changed significantly in recent years and the producers have changed the character to fit in with the new-look 007."

Christoph Waltz Reportedly Playing Blofeld in 'Bond 24'

24 November 2014 9:36 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't think this rumor will have anyone gasping as The Daily Mail is reporting recently cast Christoph Waltz will be playing iconic James Bond nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld in Bond 24. I know, shocker rightc Upon the announcement Waltz would play one of the film's villains I asked about the likelihood of him playing Blofeld on Twitter. For those that don't know, Blofeld is head of the global criminal organization Spectre and he first appeared in Ian Fleming's novel "Thunderball", but his first theatrical "appearance" was in From Russia with Love (1963), followed by a part in 1965's Thunderball before his face was finally seen in 1967's You Only Live Twice as portrayed by Donald Pleasence. The character would later be portrayed by Telly Savalas in On Her Majesty's Secret Service, by Max Von Sydow in Never Say Never Again and Charlse Gray in Diamonds are Forever before finally »

Blofeld Rumors Re-Emerge For "Bond 24"

24 November 2014 9:12 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The other week came word that Christoph Waltz would be playing the villain in the upcoming twenty-fourth James Bond film. At the time, there were also rumors that he might be playing Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the evil head of Spectre who was the main antagonist in the Sean Connery-era of the films.

Now, The Daily Mail reports that they've heard the talk as well and have added some more to the story. The British tabloid claims Waltz's casting will be confirmed at a press conference to be held in the first week of December. At said casting it will be announced that he will be playing Franz Oberhauser, the son of the late Hans Oberhauser who was Bond's ski instructor and something of a surrogate father figure.

However, their sources claim the casting is a double bluff and Waltz is actually playing Blofeld. The villain's return has long been awaited, »

Bond 24 spoilers: Which classic villain is returning?

24 November 2014 1:40 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Spoilers: This article contains Bond 24 details some readers may wish to avoid.

A classic villain from James Bond's past is expected to return for the next 007 outing.

Oscar-winning Django Unchained star Christoph Waltz will be playing Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the bald nemesis of 007 first introduced in From Russia with Love, according to the Daily Mail.

A source reportedly said that the more serious tone of the Daniel Craig movies has led producers to "change the character to fit in with the new-look 007".

Blofeld was originally created by Ian Fleming and Kevin McClory for an abandoned James Bond movie project before Fleming used the character in his Thunderball novel.

The character featured prominently in You Only Live Twice (played by Donald Pleasence), On Her Majesty's Secret Service (Telly Savalas) and Diamonds Are Forever (Charles Gray), while also appearing in 1983's rogue Bond movie from McClory, Never Say Never Again.

David Arnold: 'I'd go back to James Bond in a heartbeat'

29 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

While no-one can touch John Barry at the top of the James Bond music pyramid, the only person that even comes close is David Arnold.

Arnold scored five James Bond films, from 1997's Tomorrow Never Dies to 2008's Quantum of Solace, but was replaced for Skyfall by Sam Mendes's usual music man Thomas Newman.

James Bond will return. So will Sam Mendes. But will Arnold be back in the studio filling in the gaps between what he calls "the explosions and the car squeals and the gear changes and the punctures"?

Ahead of his Bose Universal Conductor live immersive collaboration with Ella Eyre, Digital Spy caught up with the composer, and when we finished grilling him on all things Doctor Who, we got round to 007.

"I always said that I'd go back if they asked me," Arnold said when we brought up the inevitable.

Is Hannibal Lecter Gay? 'Hannibal' Stars Answer [Exclusive]

7 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and Will Graham’s (Hugh Dancy) relationship features significant homoerotic subtext on NBC’s Hannibal. While some involved in the project shrug off the gay undertones, others acknowledge that something does seem to be going on between the two characters.

Is Hannibal Lecter Gay?

Actor Scott Thompson, who plays Jimmy Price on Hannibal, thinks it’s perfectly possibly that things could turn overtly sexual between Lecter and Graham. Putting himself in their shoes, Thompson, who is openly gay, can empathize with the idea of someone consenting to sex with a person not of their preferred gender.

“Most people just need a little nudge into [a] sexuality that’s not in their world. And I think everybody probably have someone that’s the wrong gender that they could have sex with,” Thompson told uInterview, explaining, “You know, if Michelle Rodriguez came at me with a strap on I might go, »
