The fascinating prescience of Tomorrow Never Dies

Mark Allison Dec 12, 2017

It's 20 years today that Tomorrow Never DIes first landed in UK cinemas. But was it, in its own way, ahead of its time?

Imagine a world in which deceitful news reporters and mysterious computer hackers are conspiring to destabilise the geopolitical status quo. Meanwhile, the United Kingdom has developed delusions of grandeur about its place in the world, and begun to embark upon an effort to restore itself to former imperial greatness. All this might seem a little familiar to anyone who has glanced at a newspaper recently, but it’s not a summary of recent events – this is a synopsis for the seventeenth James Bond film, Roger Spottiswoode’s Tomorrow Never Dies, which has just turned 20 years old.

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017
November may mean the end of Halloween, but that doesn’t mean that the creepy fun has to end as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon continue to add some freaky films to November’s list of streaming content.

Netflix will start the month off with films like “Oculus” and “Silent Hill” for fans of big scares and “Casper” and “Scary Movie” for those who looking for a milder way to keep the Halloween spirit alive, and will also add in “9” and “Piranha” later in the month. For those who would rather leave the October spookiness behind, science fiction comedies like “Chappie” and “Men in Black” or family-friendly films like “Charlotte’s Web” and “The Boss Baby” should make for fun movie nights.

Hulu will also keep the frights coming with offerings like “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” and “Beowulf,” but will also get a headstart on the winter holiday season with “Christmas with the Cranks,” Happy Christmas,” and collection

Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of The Foreigner In St. Louis

The Foreigner is a gripping and relevant action thriller directed by a master of the smart action genre, Martin Campbell (Casino Royale and Goldeneye.) Justice, retribution and redemption are at the heart of this provocative story of two men whose hidden pasts explode in the present.

The film marks a blazing return to the screen by Jackie Chan (the Rush Hour trilogy, Skiptrace) and Pierce Brosnan (Tomorrow Never Dies, The November Man), two actors in roles that take full advantage of and build upon their legendary star status.

The film tells the story of humble London restaurant owner Quan (Chan), whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when the only person left for him to love — his teenage daughter — is taken from him in a senseless act of politically-motivated terrorism.

Jane Goldman interview - Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Stardust and more

Duncan Bowles Sep 26, 2017

Jane Goldman chats to us about writing Kingsman, Stardust, The Walking Dead and more...

Ever since teaming up with Matthew Vaughn a decade ago to adapt and write Stardust, Jane Goldman’s profile as a writer has been on the rise and rightly so. As has already been stated many times in our interviews for Kingsman 2 over the last week, with both Mark Strong and Vaughn himself – the films they’ve made together have been fantastic and highlights of each of the genres they’ve represented, whether fantasy (Stardust), comic book (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class), or spy (Kingsman).

We sat down with Jane Goldman for a chat about her love of film and writing process and found her in fine spirits, full of laughter and happily enthusing about variety of topics close to our hearts, ingratiating herself further into the realms of geekdom, as we started

The James Bond movies' special relationship with America

Mark Harrison Sep 19, 2017

Kingsman pulls the leg of the James Bond series - but how have the 007 films put across the relationship between Britain and the USA?

When Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service exploded into cinemas in 2015, it gave the iconic James Bond franchise much the same irreverent treatment that the director's previous Mark Millar adaptation, Kick-Ass, gave to comic book movies. Reviews focused on how the film recontextualised the familiar 007 tropes of guns, girls and gadgets through the lens of class, identity and that notorious final bum note.

In the sequel, Eggsy and the Kingsmen run up against a crime syndicate known as the Golden Circle with a little help from their American cousins, the Statesmen. It neatly shows us that American iconography plays much the same role for their opposite numbers, that liquor-themed codenames will stand in for Arthurian monikers, and most accurately of all, that

Theater Chains Are Accelerating The Death Of Movie Industry -- The Lrm Weekend

  By David Kozlowski   |   18 August 2017

Welcome to Issue #9 of The Lrm Weekend, a weekly column offering strong opinions about film, TV, comics, Star Wars, Marvel, DC, animation, and anime. We also want to hear from you, our awesome Lrm community! Share your feedback or ideas for future columns: @LRM_Weekend and we'll post your Tweets below!

Hey Lrm Weekenders, this week we're featuring some of the most intriguing, powerful, and successful women in Hollywood. Its easy to become fixated on our male action stars, since that's how Hollywood tends to market their films, so we sometimes fail to recognize the contributions and accomplishments of our female action stars! But first, we want to discuss the elephant in the room: the dwindling audiences at movie theaters -- we'll explore some problems, one potential solution, and hopefully provide some insight into an issue that's only going to get worse if everything remains status quo.

Blu-ray Review – Ronin (1998)

Ronin, 1998.

Directed by John Frankenheimer.

Starring Robert De Niro, Jean Reno, Natascha McElhone, Sean Bean, Michael Lonsdale, Jonathan Pryce, Stellan Skarsgård, and Skipp Sudduth.


A group of mercenaries are hired by Irish terrorists to retrieve a case to stop it falling into Russian hands.

In case you didn’t know, ronin are Samurai warriors whose masters have been killed, leaving the warriors free to roam the land as swords-for-hire to anybody willing to pay them. The movie Ronin informs you of this in the title cards so you could be forgiven for thinking this is going to be a bloodthirsty martial arts epic in the vein of Shogun Assassin until you are thrown into a Paris bistro as a ragtag group of shifty characters are assembling. We don’t know them, they don’t know each other and only one person knows why they are there – that person being

20 Years Back: Celebrating the Cinematic Delights of 1997

Tom Jolliffe celebrates the cinematic delights of 1997…

1997. It doesn’t feel that distant but we’re now talking 20 years. This was the year I left school. That officially makes me old as fuck I believe. Lady Di passed, Tony Blair became Pm, Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule, Mike Tyson had a Holyfield Ear pie and more. The Spice Girls reigned supreme. Hanson were Mmmbopping all over the place and confusing horny teenagers who thought the girl singing lead was hot.

In film, the year is significant. This was the year the Titanic did the opposite of sink (erm… float). James Cameron’s historical (which icebergs aside wasn’t that historical) epic was seen by pretty much everyone on Earth. It probably grossed a further Trillion Wibblewangs outside the Milky Way (I just invented an alien currency). It thundered away as the highest grossing film ever (if you don’t

Update: Bond 25 titled rumoured to be titled Shatterhand, plot reportedly revealed

We still don’t technically have confirmation that Daniel Craig will be returning as James Bond for the character’s 25th outing (though he is heavily rumored), but there are already possible leaks revealing an alleged Bond 25 title and synopsis.

According to The Mirror, the title of the next James Bond film will be Shatterhand, and is based on a recently written James Bond story: the 2001 novel Never Dream of Dying written by Raymond Benson. The author is also responsible for the James Bond novelisations Die Another Day, The World is not Enough, and Tomorrow Never Dies.

The plot of Never Dream of Dying revolves around an evil French organization known only as “The Union” led by a blind supervillain. In the novel, Bond is investigating a police-raid gone wrong, when he crosses paths with an actress with a mysterious past, who (of course) eventually leads Bond to The Union itself.

New James Bond Movie Title Revealed, Plus Villain Details?

The new James Bond movie title may have been revealed if reports in the British newspaper The Mirror are to be believed. According to the red top, the 25th 007 adventure, and follow-up to box-office smashes Skyfall and Spectre, may be called ‘Shatterhand’. They say that the film will see parts of it based on the 1999 thriller novel ‘Never Dream Of Dying‘ by Us author Raymond Benson, who also wrote Bond books Tomorrow Never Dies, Die Another Day and The World is Not Enough.

New James Bond movie title to be Shatterhand?

The same report over at the news outlet is that the new film could see James Bond taking on a blind super-villain, though they add that Christoph Waltz and Dave Bautista will be reprising their roles as their two villains from Spectre after provisionally agreeing to do the next blockbuster.

An ‘insider’ told the newspaper: “Bond scriptwriters feel it

Bond 25 Rumors Intensify As New Report Points To Potential Title And A Blind Villain

The James Bond rumor mill is operating at full tilt.

As the radio silence from MGM and Eoin continues unabated – both studios recently locked down a late 2019 release for the untitled Bond 25, but nothing more – British tabloid The Mirror (via /Film) has compiled a report that claims to have identified the film’s working title, Daniel Craig’s all-but-inevitable return, and the novel on which Bond 25 will be based: Never Dream Of Dying.

Before we deep dive into this latest info dump, we should stress that The Mirror isn’t exactly what one would call a reliable source in the film industry, and the outlet’s track record with Bond, in particular, is sketchy at best. With that disclaimer out of the way, let’s indulge in a little 00 speculation, shall we?

How James Bond 25 could reinvent the franchise

Mark Harrison Jul 26, 2017

James Bond 25 will arrive in November 2019. Eon Productions still has much to consider...

This feature contains spoilers for Spectre.

It was announced this week that James Bond Will Return in November 2019, for the 25th movie in the series. After the box office reception and subsequent backlash against the previous film, 2015's Spectre, there has been much speculation about the next film taking on a radically different approach, from casting to storytelling.

The signs strongly point towards Daniel Craig reprising his role for a fifth time, according to a report in the Mirror earlier this month and a recent confirmation in the New York Times that his return was “a done deal”. Despite Craig's much repeated quote about slashing his wrists rather than returning, which the actor has since put down to being overtired by the junket schedule, it certainly looks like he's coming back for one last go.

Fear The Walking Dead season 3 set report

Duncan Bowles May 26, 2017

Den Of Geek went to Mexico to spy on the filming of Fear The Walking Dead season 3 - here's what we saw...

Standing in the middle of a remote Mexican valley in Tijuana, only accessible by an ‘upgraded’ dirt track that threatened to dislodge both the production vans' wheels and maybe a few spines, I suddenly felt utterly vindicated from any time during an interview when I’d asked about location enhancing an actors’ performance. With rolling hills, quite literally as far as the eye could see, it was impossible not to be overwhelmed by the majestic beauty of the dusty, yet strangely fertile landscape, and that was before even setting eyes on the incredible work that production designer Bernardo Trujillo and his crew had integrated into a new setting for Fear The Walking Dead simply called ‘The Ranch’.

Top 10 Movies Filmed in Thailand

Over the years there have been a great number of movies that have been filmed in Thailand, some of those films were supposed to be filmed there whilst others were filmed there as a stand in for places such as Cambodia and Vietnam.

One of the main benefits of using Thailand is that the production costs can be kept very low if the movie requires things such as glorious beaches, jungles or even elephants! Plus, with an army of experienced film crew members residing in Thailand production staffing costs can also be kept low too by hiring local yet skilled personnel.

There are of course plenty of benefits for Thailand as a whole when any major films are filmed there, as it helps the tourist industry no end, with many people wishing to visit many of the places a film was filmed at.

With that in mind we are now

Pierce Brosnan on Roger Moore: He ‘Was the Greatest Bond of His Time’
Pierce Brosnan is paying tribute to Sir Roger Moore, the James Bond who came before him.

In a statement to People, the Tomorrow Never Dies actor said, “Sir Roger Moore was the greatest Bond of his time.”

“He embraced the role with an easy charm and grace that let us all in on the game,” the statement read. “He saved the world seven times and then went on to become an even greater man working to ‘save the children’ with Unicef.”

Brosnan continued, “He never forgot the audience and we shall never forget him. I am proud to have followed in your footsteps Sir Roger.
