David Bowers interview: Wimpy Kid, James Bond, family movies

24 May 2017 1:29 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew May 25, 2017

The director of the new Wimpy Kid - and the last three - on the movie, and why he doesn't like deleted scenes...

Returning for the fourth Diary Of A Wimpy Kid film – and his third as director – is British-born director David Bowers. Having started with animation – directing Flushed Away and Astro Boy, amongst his extensive credits – Bowers has since been primarily working on bringing Jeff Kinney’s characters to the screen.

Ahead of the release in UK cinemas this Friday of Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, he spared us some time for a chat about the movie.

We started by my asking if he’d been to see the film himself since it was finished…

I went on Saturday to watch it. My mother in law wanted to see it. The guy in front of us, who’d grudgingly taken his seven-year old daughter, »

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 »

‘Becoming Bond’ Director Sees George Lazenby and Daniel Craig as Kindred Spirits

23 May 2017 9:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Every serious 007 fan has a particular film that hooked them on the franchise. For Josh Greenbaum, the writer and director of Hulu’s new docudrama “Becoming Bond,” that film was the Pierce Brosnan blockbuster “GoldenEye.”

“That’s the one that did it for me,” says Greenbaum at a premiere screening at Cinefamily. “As many people my age will attest, the Nintendo game version of that film was huge. It took the movie and turned it into a first-person shooter where you could walk around the sets of a real James Bond film and kill your friends.”

Jane Seymour on "Long Lost Brother" Roger Moore: "He Was Hilarious"

23 May 2017 6:36 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Jane Seymour recalled Roger Moore, with whom she co-starred in 1973’s James Bond movie, Live and Let Die, as a “long lost brother” and described him as being one of the funniest men in her life.

“We used to giggle terribly,” she said.

Moore, who portrayed Bond in seven movies starting with Live and Let Die, died at the age of 89 after a short battle with cancer.

Seymour was 20 when she nabbed the role of Solitaire, a Tarot card-reading psychic working for a Bond villain who loses her virginity to 007.

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. »

Poll: What’s Your Favorite Roger Moore Bond Film?

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

Roger Moore, known for his portrayal of James Bond in seven movies over the course of more than a decade, has died at the age of 89 after a short battle with cancer.

In the wake of the news, fans are looking back at his turns at 007, which all started after Moore took over for Sean Connery in 1973’s “Live and Let Die.” The actor’s more humorous take would resonate with even the most loyal of Connery fans — and helped revive the franchise at the box office.

He would next appear in 1974’s “The Man With the Golden Gun” and then in 1977’s “The Spy Who Loved Me,” which rocked Bond into blockbuster status with $185.4 million worldwide. Audiences continued to buy tickets, and heap praise on Moore, for “Moonraker” and “For Your Eyes Only.”

His last two films were “Octopussy” and “A View to Kill,” after which he retired his license to kill. »

Former James Bond Sir Roger Moore Has Passed Away

23 May 2017 2:10 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Sir Roger Moore has passed away in Switzerland following a battle with cancer. He was 89 years old. Moore was the third actor to ever play James Bond, taking over from Sean Connery with 1973's Live and Let Die. He'd go on to star in a total of seven Bond films over the course of twelve years, giving him the record as the longest-serving Bond. He also happens to be the first Bond actor to have passed away. Born in 1927, Moore enjoyed quite a prolific life as a television star - most notably in The Saint - before signing on for Bond. After his spy era ended, Moore took a bit of a break from acting. He would go on to pop up in small roles here and there, often in ways that showed off his self-aware sense of humor (like Spice World), but largely spent his later years on...

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 Remembered: How His Light Touch Made Him the Most Enduring Bond

23 May 2017 9:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The passing of Sir Roger Moore at 89 marks the first James Bond to do so. And the response from one of my sons was telling: “James Bond can’t die — he’s immortal.”

That sentiment will be shared by many Bond fans, particularly the generation that grew up with Moore in the ’70s and ’80s. Moore, who embraced the lighter side of Ian Fleming’s superspy, was also the most enduring, making a record seven franchise movies: “Live And Let Die” (1973), “The Man With The Golden Gun” (1974), “The Spy Who Loved Me” (1977), “Moonraker” (1979), “For Your Eyes Only” (1981), “Octopussy” (1983), and “A View To A Kill (1985).”

While Sean Connery defined Bond as uber-cool and free-spirited (he enjoyed killing as much as shagging), Moore redefined him as devil may care to disarm the baddies. The first Bond to hail from London, Moore’s Bond wasn’t in it for the spying, he was »

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 »
