Entertainment Geekly Mailbag: A serious attempt to explain movies about White Dude Problems

13 October 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

1999 will always be one of my favorite years for movies. This is partially because there were a lot of great movies released that year, but mainly because in 1999 I was in high school, and as we all know, the world was more important and less terrible when we were in high school. Last week, I took a look at which movies from 1999 had aged well, and asked which had aged poorly. The response was overwhelming, insofar as it's overwhelming that anyone likes American Beauty. However, one reader email in particular struck me as a launchpad for an important conversation. Here »

Bond 24 News: Lea Seydoux Set to Play Femme Fatale; Dave Bautista Rumored for “Villain in the Mold of Jaws and Oddjob”

13 October 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With James Bond 24's December start date fast approaching, some casting news is finally beginning to surface.  First up, Daily Mail reports that Lea Seydoux (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) has signed on to play the "femme fatale" and "will meet fellow cast members, led by Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris, for a script rehearsal in late November,".  We reported a couple months ago that Seydoux was being eyed to play a "Lead Female (30-40) Attractive, sophisticated, cool and calm secret agent."  If Daily Mail is saying she's the "femme fatale", then it's possible we're still waiting for the "Bond Girl" and Seydoux'x character is in the mold of Xenia Onatopp (Famke Janssen) from GoldenEye. Hit the jump for more on James Bond 24.  The film opens November 6, 2015. In August, we reported that the movie was casting for: the main assassin, with the search specifically focussed »

Goldfinger 50 years on: How the 1964 classic shaped the 007 films

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

The James Bond series - based on Ian Fleming's spy novels - is one of cinema's biggest ever film franchises, thrilling fans now for over half a century.

1962's Dr No and the following year's From Russia with Love lay the groundwork, but it was with 1964's Goldfinger that the 007 movies became a true global phenomenon.

A 50th anniversary Blu-ray re-issue of the Sean Connery classic is available to buy from today (Monday, September 22). To mark the occasion, Digital Spy explores how Goldfinger shaped Bond as we know and love him.

1. The Extravagant Pre-Titles Sequence

The previous film, From Russia with Love, was in fact the first Bond to feature a pre-titles sequence. But that scene, which saw Robert Shaw's Red Grant stalk and kill a 007 impersonator, was short and simple - and didn't even feature the real Bond.

Goldfinger was the first film to take full advantage »

Casino Royale Helmer Martin Campbell in Early Talks to Direct Hunter Killer

16 September 2014 6:11 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The game of Hot Potato over the spy thriller Hunter Killer continues.  The film has seen directors like Phillip Noyce, Antoine Fuqua, and most recently McG attached at one point or another, but has failed to come to fruition in the years that it’s been in development.  Relativity is still trying, though, and The Wrap now reports that Casino Royale helmer Martin Campbell is in early talks to direct the pic, which is an adaptation of the novel Firing Point by George Wallace and Don Keith.  The story revolves around an American sub commander and a Navy Seal team that must rescue the Russian president and defeat a renegade admiral who’s attempting a coup. Campbell hasn’t directed a film since 2011’s Green Lantern, and while he wasn’t a great match for superhero material, he helmed the excellent The Mask of Zorro and rebooted the James Bond »

Gottfried John obituary

8 September 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

German actor whose unconventional looks helped bring him villainous roles in Rainer Werner Fassbinder's films

It was inevitable that the German actor Gottfried John, with his gaunt features, low cheekbones, raspy voice and boxer's flattened nose, would play villains. In commercial terms, the culmination of his 20-year stage, cinema and television career came when John was cast as the perfidious Russian general Arkady Ourumov, James Bond's nemesis, in GoldenEye (1995), the highest-earning Bond film since Moonraker, 16 years previously.

However, for cinephiles, it was not the name of Bond with which John, who has died of cancer aged 74, was immediately associated, but that of the German wunderkind director Rainer Werner Fassbinder for whom he appeared in five features, most significantly as the poisonous Reinhold Hoffmann in the 14-part television series Berlin Alexanderplatz (1980), based on Alfred Döblin's novel.

Social Media Buzz: ‘November Man’ Labors to Overcome ‘As Above, So Below’

29 August 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Does digital data offer indicators that can be used to monitor marketing effectiveness and predict box office success even before awareness turns into intent? We analyzed this weekend’s new movies across Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Google (the methodology behind the numbers is laid out in the appendix below) over the seven days leading up to their release, when marketing campaigns should be at their peak.

“As Above, So Below” Universal, Legendary

The summer has been hard on Hollywood and 2014 has been even harsher on horror in particular, with most movies hovering around $10 million opening weekends. Only “Purge: Anarchy” really broke out, capitalizing on the success of the 2013 iteration to slash its way to $29.8 million on opening. “As Above, So Below” delves into the Paris catacombs for its scares and looks set to be the next horror movie to land around that $10 million mark for the three-day weekend.

Spotlight on the Stars: Pierce Brosnan

27 August 2014 2:10 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a go a bit old school and take a look at an A-lister who’s been around for a while now…Pierce Brosnan. A very charming actor, he went from being well known and well liked on television to a mega star when he became one of the notable few ever to essay the role of secret agent 007 in the James Bond franchise. Brosnan has also been one of the more successful post Bond actors, doing his best not to be defined by the iconic role. As such, he’s retained that A-list status and is well deserving of today’s spotlight piece. Here we go! Brosnan had his beginnings on television, in made for TV movies and bit parts, before he became a known commodity with his series Remington Steele. That show made him a small screen star (and »

Absolutely adorable.

One reason Pierce might be such a good son is he obviously didn't spend too much time in his room playing video games. Jimmy Fallon challenged Pierce to some Nintendo Goldeneye, and the result is priceless. Watch the video below.

Top 5: Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Men, Women & Children Trailer, Pierce Brosnan Plays Goldeneye 007, Outcast, Chinese Movie Theater Texting

23 August 2014 1:04 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Available now on VOD and DVD is writer/director Joshua Zeman's urban legend documentary Killer Legends. For those who've seen Zeman's solid 2009 effort Cropsey, Killer Legends is a continuation of the filmmaker's interest not just in urban legends but in the real stories behind the tales. Rather than focus on one subject like its predecessor, though, Legends is made up of four vignettes each devoted to a true crime that helped shape some of our most widely recognized legends: The Candyman, The Killer Clown, The Babysitter Murders, and The Hookman. Individually, I found Zeman's look at "The Hookman" and its ties to the "Moonlight Murders" of Texarkana in 1946 (the inspiration for Charles B. Pierce's The Town That Dreaded Sundown) to be the strongest of the four. On the whole, the doc is a fascinating project that seamlessly blends elements of crime, horror, and nostalgia as you recall the »

'Bond 24' Looking to Cast a New, Iconic Henchman

23 August 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Who was the last memorable henchman in a James Bond filmc I have to say it was probably Famke Janssen as Xenia Onatopp in Goldeneye... rightc Before her I would say Jaws (Richart Kiel) and Oddjob (Harold Sakata) are most memorable to me, but it most certainly has been a while since a Bond villain had a satisfying henchman to do his/her dirty work, but a new report from James Bond Radio suggest that may be changing with Bond 24. The report says director Sam Mendes is looking to bring back the henchman with a character named Hinx, with the following character description, reportedly directly from the casting agency: Hinx (Male, 30 - 45) Ideally over 6c 2c. Hinx is the main henchman/assassin. We are looking for an imposing extremely physically fit actor. He has several fights with Bond and will have to have stunt training. He has to drive. »

"Bond 24" Wants A Henchman, Austrian Locale

23 August 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Whilst "Skyfall" saw the return of some of the more iconic elements of the James Bond franchise, one element that was missing is that of an iconic henchman - the last one arguably being Famke Janssen's Xenia Onatopp in "Goldeneye".

A new report over at James Bond Radio claims that the twenty-fourth Bond film's director Sam Mendes is aiming to fill that gap and is looking for just such an actor.

This one will apparently be less about crushing men between their thighs and more in line with the tall and imposing types from earlier films like Jaws (Richard Kiel) or Red Grant (Martin Shaw). There's even a description:

Hinx (Male, 30 – 45) - Ideally over 6' 2". Hinx is the main henchman/assassin. We are looking for an imposing extremely physically fit actor. He has several fights with Bond and will have to have stunt training. He has to drive. We »

Before he was James Bond: Pierce Brosnan turned down a chance to play Batman

21 August 2014 1:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pierce Brosnan may be best known for playing suave secret agent James Bond, but the dapper Irish actor almost filled the shoes of another famous fictional hero: Batman. Unsurprisingly, Brosnan admitted during a Reddit Ama this week that he regrets turning down an offer to star as the Caped Crusader in Tim Burton's 1989 smash hit. The "November Man" star was one of several big names -- including Mel Gibson, Kevin Costner and Bill Murray (!) up for the role that ultimately went to Michael Keaton. "I went and met with Tim Burton for the role of Batman," Brosnan revealed. "But I just couldn't really take it seriously, any man who wears his underpants outside his pants just cannot be taken seriously. That was my foolish take on it. It was a joke, I thought. But how wrong was I? Don't get me wrong, because I love Batman, and I grew up on Batman. »
