We take a look at some potential turning points that could have altered the Bond legacy significantly...
007 lists resurrection amongst his hobbies, but speculation is our game today. Your own ideal fantasy James Bond film probably depends on what sort of Bond you're into. If you like serious Bond, you probably consider it a crying shame that Timothy Dalton didn't get to make at least one more film. A fair proportion of the fandom consider Never Say Never Again to be one of the worst of the series, so for them, rolling the dice on a 1976 production with a different actor and a more exciting script would have been worth it.
Furthermore, a Sony Pictures produced rival film with, say, Liam Neeson in the late 1990s could have been fascinating. How about Connery returning to the role in his 60s? All of these possibilities »
Harry Styles likes to relax with yoga and enjoyed a yoga break on a recent holiday with Gary Barlow and James Corden. The three enjoyed a break at Ian Fleming's old Goldeneye home. The late author penned many of James Bond's spy adventures at the Jamaican property, and the British trio took the chance to have a relaxing few days before a busy month professionally. Speaking to The Sun newspaper, a source said: ''The boys had a great time together - full of lots of laughs and all very chilled.'' According to reports, the One Direction heartthrob attended yoga classes during their warm weather break, although his famous friends opted out. After their brief time away, the trio will now be jumping back into work, with the Take That singer continuing his work on the band's upcoming return. Meanwhile, Harry and James will be looking ahead to the Brit Awards on Wednesday, »
You’d think it would be self-evident that there’s no way to tell whether a movie is good or bad until actually seeing it, but it’s not always the case. Although it’s increasing in fervor lately, the anticipatory intensity leading up to a movie’s release has always swayed movie fans’ perception one way or the other. Sometimes the pre-conceived notions of a movie’s quality are accurate, sometimes things thought to be sure-thing masterpieces are anything but. Sometimes, things everyone spends months dreading turn out to be terrific; the stellar reviews for The Lego Movie indicate that it may very well be one of them, and even the Robocop remake, getting some positive early notices, might be one as well. Here are five more movies we all covered our heads for before seeing the light. Casino Royale Pierce Brosnan’s tenure as James Bond yielded one legit Bond classic (Goldeneye) and a handful »

The James Bond franchise has had its ups and downs over its 50 year run run, but where it came together for a lot of people after several missteps was the 21st entry. Casino Royale was parallel to other successful reboots like Star Trek, Batman Begins, and X-Men: First Class which honored what had came before whilst injecting new life into their respective franchises.
Martin Campbell was chosen for the film which made sense because he had already cut his teeth on one of the more critically praised Brosnan Bond movies, GoldenEye. GoldenEye had come after a six year hiatus following Timothy Dalton resigning the role which essentially made GoldenEye a 90's version of Casino Royale. Predictably Campbell delivered in spades, pulling in little bits of inspiration from Batman Begins and the Bourne movies to create a grittier, more realistic Bond, pushing the gadgets and supercars to the background. The result »

If you've followed this blog, you already know how much we dig Oren Moverman. He's the writer/director behind the duo of terrific dramas "The Messenger" and "Rampart," and while he's been brewing a few projects since (including the forthcoming Brian Wilson biopic "Love & Mercy," which he wrote and has Paul Dano and John Cusack set to star in), nothing has returned him behind the camera. Now that is set to change. Moverman is set to direct "Time Out Of Mind," and no, it's not a science fiction movie. Instead, it stars Richard Gere, and is based on a story by Jeffrey Caine ("The Constant Gardener," "GoldenEye"), about a New York man who tries to patch things up with his estranged daughter, all while struggling to get his life back on track after circumstances force him into a homeless shelter. It sounds like a potent matchup of solid material with a great director/star pairing, »

In an era when studios are increasingly relying on franchises to boost their bottom lines, it’s no small feat to be the gatekeeper of the longest-running film series in Hollywood history.
For nearly two decades, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, the daughter and stepson of the late James Bond producer Albert “Cubby” Broccoli, have managed to keep the suave Agent 007 relevant to modern-day audiences in the face of significant competition from other high-octane action franchises — and studio turmoil that put Bond on hiatus more than once. The two have survived numerous regime changes at Bond’s home base, MGM, as they’ve fought to keep the Broccoli family business intact.
Broccoli, 53, and Wilson, 71, who reside in London and are being honored Jan. 19 by the Producers Guild of America with the David O. Selznick Award for lifetime achievement, have protectively watched over Bond as a team since 1995, and guarded »
