Blade Runner 2049 to Bond 25: yes, Mr Villeneuve, we expect you to direct

10 October 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Like Christopher Nolan, Sam Mendes and Peter Jackson, Villeneuve is a rare example of a visionary film-maker with franchise nous. Can he get the 007 gig?

Sam Mendes may have done more than just reload 007’s Walther Ppk with box-office bullets when he took on Skyfall five years ago. For decades, Bond production company Eon vacillated between recruiting indie directors with a handful of arthouse hits on their hands (Quantum of Solace’s Marc Forster; Die Another Day’s Lee Tamahori) and tried and tested industry stalwarts (Casino Royale and GoldenEye’s Martin Campbell; The World Is Not Enough’s Michael Apted). But in the wake of Mendes’ success in taking Bond past the $1bn mark for the first time, then almost repeating the feat with 2015’s Spectre, an entirely new calibre of film-maker is being mentioned to take charge of 2019’s 25th official 007 movie.

Location Basque Country: Some Key Locations

24 September 2017 11:45 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

San Sebastian — Bizkaia’s 10th century chapel of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, built on a rock in the sea, served as one of the real-life locations for Dragonstone, the home to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) in Season 7 of “Game of Thrones.”

Over July to October 2016, production teams at HBO and Spanish services company Fresco Film established one of “Game of Thrones” production headquarters in Bilbao, also filming series’ scenes on the beaches of Muriola, in Bizkaia’s Barrika, and Itzuru, in Gipuzkoa’s Zumaia, which boasts a singular geo-park featuring Flysch rock formation.

ABC’s “The Bachelor” also filmed at San Juan de Gaztelugatxe this year.

High-profile international shoots in the Basque Country have some standout precedents. In the early ‘70s, Dustin Hoffman and Steve McQueen spent nearly a week in Hondarribia, a Gipuzkoan town near the French border, shooting Franklin J. Schaffner’s prison drama “Papillon.” Hondarribia, alongside San Sebastian and Zarauz, was »

The James Bond movies' special relationship with America

16 September 2017 9:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

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 »

Beyonce to Sing James Bond 25 Theme Song?

29 August 2017 11:32 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Exactly two weeks after Daniel Craig finally confirmed his return as 007 in Sony's highly-anticipated James Bond 25, the studio is pursuing a massive star to tackle the theme song. A new report claims that 22-time Grammy winning singer Beyonce is engaging in talks to sing the theme song for this currently-untitled James Bond movie. Beyonce is close friends with Adele, who took home an Oscar, Grammy, Golden Globe and Brit Award for her Skyfall theme song, and the two have been discussing how that song changed Adele's career. Here's what an unidentified source had to say about Beyonce's possible James Bond theme song deal.

"The two spoke before Bey's first meeting with film bosses and Adele told her how co-writing and performing a Bond theme gave her an amazing career hike. Not many of the themes have been as successful, but there are tens of millions of Beyonce fans out there. »

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

2 August 2017 1:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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. »

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.

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.

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

1 August 2017 3:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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?

First thing’s first: the 25th instalment in MGM’s iconic spy franchise is reportedly simmering »

How James Bond 25 could reinvent the franchise

25 July 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

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. »

The Best Opening Credit Sequences In Movie History — IndieWire Critics Survey

8 May 2017 1:41 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Inspired by Baby Groot’s “Mr. Blue Sky” dance sequence at the beginning of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” what movie has the best opening credits sequence?

April Wolfe (@awolfeful), La Weekly

Hands down, it’s R.W. Fassbinder’s “The Marriage of Maria Braun.” I watch the opening sequence at least three times a year and show it to every filmmaker I can. I love any film that begins with a bang, and this one does quite literally: We open up on an explosion that rips out a hunk of brick wall, exposing a German couple in the middle of a rushed marriage ceremony. »

Film Review: ‘Unlocked’

5 May 2017 12:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the Hollywood casting search for a new, rebooted Lisbeth Salander starts up again, spare a thought for poor Noomi Rapace. Having stepped aside for Rooney Mara in David Fincher’s 2011 film, the original girl with the dragon tattoo is still proving her mettle for the part in far lesser vehicles like “Unlocked” — an anonymously enjoyable espionage thriller that, for purposes of memory, all but self-destructs the second the closing credits begin to roll. Starring Rapace as a steely CIA operative on a trust-no-one mission to save London from biological terrorism, Michael Apted’s efficient but unstylish film has only a prestigious cast of supporting slummers — Michael Douglas, Toni Collette, John Malkovich — to distinguish it from a “Spooks”-style TV outing. None of them, it should be said, brings as much to the table as Rapace, who gives this in-flight special the stern commitment of a star hungry for better things. »

Ryan Lambie May 5, 2017

Director Michael Apted talks to us about his new film Unlocked, memories of making a Bond movie, and why thrillers make great cinema...

Over a career which stretches back to the 1960s, director Michael Apted has proved to be an extraordinarily versatile filmmaker. There's his ongoing series of Up television documentaries, which have charted the experiences of a range of British people over a period of 49 years and counting. There are his movies, which range from the Oscar-winning Gorillas In The Mist (1988) to the big-budget Bond entry The World Is Not Enough (1999). And then there's his TV work, which includes episodes of Rome and Masters Of Sex.

Unlocked review: Dir. Michael Apted (2017)

4 May 2017 2:07 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Unlocked review: Celebrated filmmaker Michael Apted unlocks some major Hollywood talent for this sub-par British crime thriller.

Unlocked review by Paul Heath.

Unlocked comes to the screen from directing legend Michael Apted, the man responsible for the likes of Gorillas In The Mist, Bond movie The World Is Not Enough and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, amongst many others. His six-decade career has seen Apted tackle many genres with varying budgets, but the filmmaker turns his hand to the world of crime in England’s capital with this new thriller loaded with tons of Hollywood talent.

Noomi Rapace leads the cast as Alice Racine, a former CIA interrogator who is lured back into action when London is put in danger of a biological attack. Racine is working as a social worker in the capital after failing to contain a terrorist attack in Paris five years »

James Bond 25 Targets Luke Cage Director Paul McGuigan

1 May 2017 4:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As fans wait to see who'll control the James Bond franchise next, with a bidding war recently starting between five different studios, Eon Productions is trying to lock down their next director, as they also wait for Daniel Craig to commit to the movie as well. With Skyfall and Spectre director Sam Mendes long since bowing out, the producers are meeting with filmmakers, including Irish director Paul McGuigan, who is considered to be a top candidate for the job. Nothing is set in stone at this point, but writers Neil Purvis and Robert Wade are currently working on the script.

IndieWire broke the news of Paul McGuigan being in contention for the directorial gig, but it isn't known at this time what other contenders are also being considered. Eon Productions was reportedly so impressed with his work in the upcoming Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool with Annette Bening and Jamie Bell, »

Sherlock Helmer Paul McGuigan Reportedly In Contention For Bond 25

1 May 2017 3:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If Ian Fleming’s world-famous spy developed a curious case of stage fright in the immediate aftermath of Spectre – ongoing issues with the James Bond film rights and Daniel Craig’s contract have resulted in a prolonged and, frankly, perplexing pre-production process for Bond 25 – we’re beginning to see the early signs of a 007 comeback.

There are still obstacles to overcome, but now that MGM and Eon have sparked a creative bidding war over the franchise’s rights – a bidding war that reportedly involves five parties: Warner Bros., Universal, 20th Century Fox, Annapurna and Sony – fleeting morsels of information are beginning to infiltrate the interwebs. IndieWire has the latest report, one which claims that longtime series producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have drawn up a shortlist of potential directors. So far, only one name has emerged online: Paul McGuigan, the filmmaker best known for Lucky Number Slevin and Victor Frankenstein, »

'Unlocked': Film Review

30 April 2017 5:37 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

There must surely be a gap in the market for a female-led spy thriller series in the James Bond or Jason Bourne mode. Alas, Unlocked is not the film to launch that franchise, despite sticking firmly within genre conventions. A little too firmly, arguably. Despite a starry international cast headed by Noomi Rapace, Orlando Bloom, Toni Collette and Michael Douglas, this functional contemporary spy yarn is played way too straight by 76-year-old British director Michael Apted (The World Is Not Enough), who brings nothing fresh to the formula besides the minor innovation of dropping an action heroine into a male-dominated »
