Top Ten Movie Franchises Based on Books

15 hours ago | 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 »

Ryan Reynolds talks taking on a new action role in The Hitman’s Bodyguard

Ryan Reynolds talks taking on a new action role in The Hitman’s BodyguardRyan Reynolds talks taking on a new action role in The Hitman’s BodyguardTanner Zipchen8/16/2017 10:00:00 Am

The Hitman’s Bodyguard follows Samuel L. Jackson (the hitman) and Ryan Reynolds (the bodyguard) on a 24-hour journey from England to The Hague, Netherlands, so the hitman can testify against an evil dictator (Gary Oldman).

No surprise, the storyline meant they’d get to film in some pretty cool locations across Europe, and the Amsterdam leg of the production — where we met up with Reynolds last summer — made for some of the most action-packed days.

From a van full of singing nuns to a speedboat chase and cars flipping into the historic Amsterdam canals (this is the first movie with permission to shoot in the canals since James Bond and Diamonds are Forever) this set definitely drew a crowd. »

Say never again: why Daniel Craig should quit while he's ahead as Bond

7 August 2017 7:54 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

When Sean Connery returned as James Bond after a 12-year hiatus, he tarnished his legacy. Craig, who has reportedly signed up for two more films, would do well to heed the lesson

Legacy matters in cinema. Last week, a Us judge allowed a James Bond fan to proceed with a lawsuit against MGM for failing to include the rogue 007 projects Casino Royale (the 1967 version) and Never Say Never Again in a “complete” box set of movies about the suave super spy. Lawyers for Mary L Johnson, of Pierce County, Washington, argue that most reasonable people would expect these films to be included in a comprehensive collection of Bond movies. And they probably have a point, at least in the case of Never Say Never Again.

Never Say Never Again will always be part of Sean Connery’s legacy as 007. The Scotsman returned to his most famous role in 1983, 12 years after »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Joe Robinson, the estimable stuntman, stunt arranger and occasional actor, has passed away in his native England at age 90. Robinson came from a family of wrestlers and he won the European Heavyweight Championship in 1952. Robinson drifted into the film industry initially as an actor, starring in the 1955 movie "A Kid for Two Farthings". Leading man status eluded him but he found a steady career arranging stunts for films and television shows and occasionally acting in them as well. Like many British and American actors, he gravitated to Italy in the early 1960s to appear in some of the "Hercules"-inspired strongman films that were quite popular during that era. He scored small action roles in "Barabbas" and "Ursus" before returning to England, where he had a supporting role in Tony Richardson's classic "The Loneliness of the Long Distance Rnner. »

Roger Moore’s James Bond: appreciating the raised eyebrow

9 July 2017 6:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tim George Jul 10, 2017

An appreciation of the late Roger Moore, and his importance to the James Bond series...

It took me a long time to realise this but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense: Roger Moore is the most important actor to play James Bond. For while Sean Connery created the icon, Roger Moore is the reason why we are still trotting out to the cinema. This premise might sound like sacrilege.

As I’ve gotten older, and four movies into Daniel Craig’s tenure, my thinking has shifted considerably. Whereas I used to wish that the movies followed the books, I’ve finally recognised that »

R.I.P. Adam West (1928 – 2017)

10 June 2017 9:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Some extremely sad news this afternoon, as it has been announced that Adam West – known for his iconic role as the Caped Crusader in the classic 1960s Batman TV series – passed away yesterday aged 88 after a short battle with leukaemia.

“Our dad always saw himself as The Bright Knight, and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans’ lives,” reads a statement released by West’s family today. “He was and always will be our hero.”

Beginning his career in 1959 with a role alongside Paul Newman in The Young Philadelphians, West would make a number of guest appearances on the small screen throughout the first half of the 1960s, before securing the title role alongside Burt Ward’s Robin in TV’s Batman.

Premiering in 1966, the campy take on the DC superhero was an enormous success, running for 120 episodes across three seasons, as well as spawning the 1966 feature film. »

Pierce Brosnan Pays Tribute to Fellow James Bond Actor Roger Moore

31 May 2017 9:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sir Roger Moore, the longest-serving actor to ever take on the role of James Bond, unfortunately passed away at the age of 89 last week. To say we lost a legend would be an understatement, and the world knows it. One of his fellow James Bond stars, Pierce Brosnan, has now penned a touching, heartfelt and lengthy tribute to Roger Moore, revealing how much respect he had for the actor, as well as some personal insights into their relationship.

Pierce Brosnan penned the column for Variety, in which, he describes Roger Moore as his "first real hero". Roger Moore starred in seven James Bond movies, starting with Live and Let Die and ending with A View to a Kill from the years of 1973 to 1985. In the column, Brosnan explains that, even before his role turn as 007, Roger Moore influenced him on the TV series The Saint as Simon Templar. Here's what »

James Bond Actors Pay Tribute to Sir Roger Moore

23 May 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The world lost a legend today, as Sir Roger Moore, the man who played 007 in seven James Bond movies, passed away after losing a battle with cancer. Moore, who was 89 years old, was the man who played the character for the longest and brought a very distinct style to the role of Bond. Now, his fellow James Bond stars have released statements, paying tribute to the late actor.

Roger Moore famously took over the lead role in the James Bond franchise following Sean Connery's departure once he completed Diamonds are Forever. Despite Connery's mixed feelings toward the producers of the franchise, he never harbored ill will for Roger Moore and released a statement to Entertainment Weekly following the news of his passing. Here's what he had to say.

"I was very sad to hear of Roger's passing. We had an unusually long relationship, by Hollywood standards, that was filled with jokes and laughter. »

Sir Roger Moore Has Passed Away

23 May 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Sir Roger Moore, best known for portraying James Bond in seven installments of the spy series, has died, according to his official Twitter account. He was 89. Moore's screen career dated back to the 1940s and gained momentum through the 1950s. His breakthrough international role came on TV's The Saint, starting in 1962. He embodied Simon Templar as a charming adventurer through six seasons. When Sean Connery declined to return as 007 after Diamonds Are Forever, Moore came on board and faced heavy criticism from fans who felt he pushed the character too far into light comedy. But those same criticisms are what made his interpretation of Bond so distinctive, likable and personable. In Live and Let Die, The Man with the Golden Gun, and...

Roger Moore, Former James Bond Actor, Passes Away at 89

23 May 2017 8:21 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Roger Moore, who is best known for playing James Bond in seven movies throughout the 70s and 80s, has passed away at the age of 89. The actor succumbed to cancer. The veteran star died in Switzerland. It has been announced that he will have a private funeral in Monaco in accordance with his wishes.

To some, Roger Moore is the only James Bond that matters. To others, he is the quintessential Bond, personifying the sexiness and cool European swagger that made his take on the character slightly different than those that came before him and those that followed. He was the first to present Bond with a grand sense of humor, that hasn't been matched in any of other movies in this long running series. But no matter what your stance on the matter is, Moore is one of the best Bonds to ever sip a Martini and chase both »

Irreverent and knowing as James Bond: Sir Roger Moore obituary

23 May 2017 7:21 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Actor who brought humour, panache and suavity to his starring roles in The Saint, The Persuaders! and seven James Bond films

Sir Roger Moore, who has died aged 89, considered himself to be only the fourth best actor to have played Ian Fleming’s secret-service agent James Bond on screen: in his estimation, he came in behind Daniel Craig (whom he called “the Bond”), Sean Connery and George Lazenby. Though Moore was rarely regarded as the best or most definitive Bond, his inimitable humour and panache made him many viewers’ favourite. His tally of seven films – beginning with Live and Let Die (1973) and ending with A View to a Kill (1985) – equalled that of Connery, though Moore occupied the role for a longer consecutive period. He was eloquent on the distinction between their portrayals. “Sean played Bond as a killer and I played Bond as a lover,” he said. Only on Fridays »

Rohan Mehra, who is all set to embark upon a new journey by making an acting debut with Baazaar, has been working in the film industry for the last two years.

Five years later, Rohan faced the camera for the first time with Nikkhil Advani’s Baazaar, directed by Gauravv Chawla. The film stars nawab Saif Ali Khan along with the talented Radhika Apte.

“It’s exciting working with actors of their stature in my first film as it throws me into the deep-end straightaway. I was nervous but the nerves have cooled down. »

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. »

Rules Don't Apply review

23 April 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Warren Beatty's new film, Rules Don't Apply, quietly snuck into UK cinemas last weekend. Here's our review...

Not unreasonably, Howard Hughes is a figure of fascination in cinema. From Leonardo DiCaprio in The Aviator to Terry O'Quinn in The Rocketeer, to characters who were inspired by him, like Willard Whyte in Diamonds Are Forever or Howard Stark in the Marvel cinematic universe, the billionaire businessman's on-screen influence feels fitting for his early status as a movie tycoon.

Now, Warren Beatty directs, produces, writes and stars in Rules Don't Apply, whose convention-busting title reflects the way in which it runs counter to other cinematic treatments by putting the spotlight on two of Hughes' many employees. Set during the tumultuous years of 1958 to 1964, the film focuses on virginal Virginia beauty queen Marla Mabrey (Lily Collins), an actress who's new to Hollywood, and Frank Forbes (Alden Ehrenreich), a chauffeur who drives her around. »
