So, if you believe lame British tabloid rumors, the new James Bond has already been decided. That would be Damien Lewis, the former star of “Homeland," who is about to appear in Showtime’s “Billions” from writer/directors Brian Koppelman and David Levien. You’ll probably also see him co-starring in Werner Herzog’s “Queen Of The Desert” sometime in 2016. But maybe everyone should hold their horses for one quick second before predicting the new Bond, or declaring potential actors “too street” to play the role. Because in a recent interview with the Daily Mail, Daniel Craig says he’s signed on for one more Bond movie and suggests he has no plans to go anywhere at the moment. “I work myself to death,” the actor admitted about the physical training prep for the role. “It’s getting harder. But such is life. I’ll keep going as long as I’m physically able. »

A Red Dwarf movie was announced in 2000, and news on it would follow for years afterwards. So: what happened?
When the eighth series of Red Dwarf left our screens in 1999, with the titular (nanobotically-reconstituted) mining vessel being devoured by a highly corrosive micro-organism, it left us with the words “The End” emblazoned over the image, before being replaced by “The Smeg It Is.”
And then, nothing.
It was ten years before the boys from the Dwarf were back on our screens, albeit for a three-episode run on Dave. But that lost decade was not spent watching re-runs of The Flintstones, nor was everyone trapped in a completely immersive video game indistinguishable from reality. Most of it involved co-creator Doug Naylor (his comedy partner Rob Grant left the show after season six), trying to get a movie off the ground.
This had not been the plan. But with the BBC rejecting »
A cryptic message from his past sends 007 on a personal mission, looking for answers in dark places and eventually leading him to the criminal organization known as Spectre. James Bond is back in a big way with a new Aston, new gadgets, more Bond girls than you can count on three fingers (no, seriously, […]
Read James Bond is Just Getting Started in the New Trailer for Spectre on Filmonic.
So this is the anti-Bond. Stripped of the requisite wit and mischief. Short of temper, heavy of touch. The SPECTREs of yore replaced by a drugs cartel. World domination downgraded to a heroin monopoly. Glamour smothered by grit. Joy drowned in the bloodshed. The icon of British cinema reduced to an American cop show – MI6 Vice, Hawaii 007 – timeless style swamped by the vulgarity and cash of the late-1980s, a case of ‘Sayonara, Mr Bond’ and everything you stand for. Derivative, needlessly violent, no identity, no soul – it’s just Not Bond, dammit! All nonsense, of course. The open-minded know this brutal, brilliant outing is about as good as the series can get.
The Villain: Franz Sanchez is unquestionably the great forgotten villain of the franchise. He possesses all the vital characteristics: charm, »
Hillary Rodham Clinton’s highly anticipated campaign video announcing her second presidential bid set the Internet ablaze on Sunday — and it actually made history, too. The Chicago gay couple — Jared Milrad, 31, and Nate Johnson, 30 — featured in Clinton’s “Getting Started” announcement marked the first time ever that a same-sex couple appeared in an official presidential campaign video. TheWrap spoke with the history-making couple about how their participation in the video came about, the subsequent media blitz and whether or not the former Secretary of State RSVP’d to their upcoming wedding.

Hillary Rodham Clinton officially launched her presidential bid on Sunday to join Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush on list of modern-day politicians who tried to win the presidency after losing a first run. “I’m running for president,” Clinton says in “Getting Started” campaign kick-off video. “Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top. Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion so you can do more than just get by. You can get ahead and stay ahead. »

On Sunday, Hillary Clinton officially announced that she's running for president in 2016. She broke the big news via a video called "Getting Started," saying, "Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top. Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion." Next, she's expected to make her way to Iowa, and along with her more low-key announcement, this time around, the former secretary of state will kick off her campaign by participating in smaller events with voters rather than larger rallies. Watch her announcement in the video below. »
Hillary Clinton launched her long-awaited presidential campaign Sunday. The announcement had been expected at noon Et. Instead it came several hours late with the Associated Press and the New York Times being tipped off. A short time later, a video titled “Getting Started” was posted on YouTube. “I’m running for president,” Clinton says near the end of the two minute video. She follows the statement with “I’m hitting the road to earn your vote.” The video features several working-class Americans of different races talking about their lives and goals, in both English and Spanish.

Fear not. Even if you haven’t read the book, there’s no reason you can’t take pleasure in the movie. We’re happy to explain what all the excitement is about.
Back in 2012 you’d see them everywhere. People — predominately women — focused on their e-readers, tablets or paperbacks featuring grey ties on the covers. They were lapping up author E.L. James’ naughty romance novel Fifty Shades of Grey, a literary sensation that introduced many to the erotic world of Bdsm (Bondage, Discipline and/or Domination, Submission, Masochism).
As the big-screen adaptation of the book reaches theatres, we realize some of you still don’t understand what all the fuss is about.
So sit back, do as you’re told and let us educate you on the finer points of Fifty Shades of Grey. »
