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. »

Michael Apted interview: Unlocked, Bond, thrillers

4 May 2017 4:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

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 »

Unlocked review

Noomi Rapace stars in Unlocked, a new spy thriller from director Michael Apted. A new franchise in the offing? Ryan takes a look...

Are filmmakers having trouble titling their spy thrillers? Think about the names of classic examples of the genre: The Spy Who Came In From The Cold. The Ipcress File. Three Days Of The Condor. The Day Of The Jackal. Cool. Evocative. Enticing.

Now consider the following: Salt. Spectre. The Double. Unlocked. Don’t exactly get the pulse racing, do they?

Still, there’s plenty of tension and paranoia to go around in Unlocked, even if its name slips from the mind as soon as you’ve looked at the poster. Noomi Rapace stars as Alice Racine, a former CIA interrogator who’s reluctant to return to the fold after »

Why Sony Has the Advantage Over Four Studio Rivals in a James Bond Bidding War

20 April 2017 10:51 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A Hollywood bidding war began this week for distribution rights to “Bond 25,” led by Sony  — which co-financed and released worldwide the last four Daniel Craig movies, grossing a franchise record close to $3.5 billion — and rival studios Warner Bros., Fox, Universal, and prestige indie Annapurna.

While that means Daniel Craig is closer to signing on for his fifth and final Bond appearance, one insider said the distribution decision will take months; that means we might have to wait until 2019 for “Bond 25.” And there’s still an A-list director to be signed, with the departure of Sam Mendes; contenders could include Kathryn Bigelow, Danny Boyle, Christopher Nolan, David Fincher, Denis Villeneuve, and Susanne Bier.

In terms of Bond bragging rights, distribution is more about prestige than profit, since the franchise is co-owned by MGM and Eon Productions (run by half-sibling producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli), which control 75% of the profits. »

Why Daniel Craig Will Return for ‘Bond 25’: To Save the World from Trump and Brexit

21 March 2017 11:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For Bond fans wondering what might lure Daniel Craig back for “Bond 25,” it just might be the opportunity for 007 to metaphorically save the world from the Orwellian nightmare of Trump, Putin, Brexit, and WikiLeaks.

At least that’s the hope of long-time Bond scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who have been hired to write the script for “Bond 25.” They’ve been on every Bond film since “The World is Not Enough” (1999), and recently adapted Len Deighton’s alt-history mini-series, “SS-gb” (BBC One).

“Each time, you’ve got to say something about Bond’s place in the world, which is Britain’s place in the world,” Purvis told the Telegraph last month. “But things are moving so quickly now, that becomes tricky. With people like Trump, the Bond villain has become a reality.”

Meanwhile, Craig’s resistance has definitely softened after proclaiming on the “Spectre” press tour that »

Neal Purvis and Robert Wade reportedly returning for Bond 25

12 March 2017 3:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We still don’t know whether Daniel Craig will be returning as 007 in Bond 25, but it seems that screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are officially on board for the next instalment of the long-running spy series, according to Baz Bamigboye of The Daily Mail.

Writers #nealpurvis & #robertwade hired to write story for #Bond25. #DanielCraig still deciding whether he will do it

Baz Bamigboye (@BazBam) March 9, 2017

Purvis and Wade have been ever-presents in the Bond franchise since 1999’s The World Is Not Enough, contributing to the scripts for Die Another Day, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre (the duo initially announced they would not be working on Spectre, but were ultimately brought in to polish John Logan’s screenplay).

As yet, Bond 25 is without a set release date, and will also need to find a new director after Skyfall and Spectre »

Bond 25: New Film Gets Writers, Daniel Craig’s Return Still Pending

10 March 2017 10:55 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

It always seems like quite the struggle to get every third film in the James Bond franchise underway. After the lukewarm reception of 2008’s Quantum of Solace, the production of Skyfall was suspended for a while due to  MGM’s own financial issues in 2010, and now on the heels of another lukewarm film in Spectre, it seems pretty slow going for the project. 

Of course, one of the chief questions from all of this has been the involvement of Daniel Craig. The dude made no attempt to hide his disdain at the time for playing the shallow MI6 agent. During the promotion circuit, he famously stated he would rather slash his wrists than do another Bond film. That was comment that was slightly taken out of context. Craig likely meant he didn’t want to go immediately from one film to the next, and that he was  and in later interviews, »

Spectre Writers Return for Bond 25, Daniel Craig Still Undecided

10 March 2017 8:19 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It is still a little unclear exactly who is going to be playing James Bond in the next edition of the classic spy franchise, but James Bond 25 has just taken a very reassuring step forward. The writing duo of Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have signed on to write the next movie, who also wrote Spectre and several other Bond movies. When it comes to Daniel Craig and whether or not he'll be back with a Walther Ppk in his hand and a mission on his mind, that's another story.

The news comes courtesy of journalist Baz Bamigboye, who writes for The Daily Mail. He took to his Twitter account recently to declare that Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have officially signed on to write the follow-up to Spectre. That should be somewhat assuring to long-time 007 fans, as they have been a staple of the franchise since The World is Not Enough »

Writers Of Last Six 007 Movies Returning For ‘Bond 25’

10 March 2017 8:15 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s Friday and I’m feeling a bit salty, so here’s a hot take: the only great James Bond movie Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have written is “Casino Royale.” The duo have been franchise mainstays, penning the last half dozen 007 adventures (“The World Is Not Enough,” “Die Another Day,” “Casino Royale,” “Quantum Of Solace,” “Skyfall,” “Spectre“), and clearly producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G.

Bond 25 Flickers Into Life After Recruiting Spectre Scribes

10 March 2017 8:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Can Bond 25 go on to become lucky number seven for screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade?

According to a report relayed by the Daily Mail, Purvis and Wade have been officially approached to pen the next installment in the iconic spy series, which would take their total James Bond tally to seven following work on Spectre, Skyfall, Quantum of Solace, Casino Royale, Die Another Day and The World Is Not Enough. While unconfirmed, recruiting Purvis and Wade for James Bond’s next globetrotting mission certainly makes a lot of sense – even if Quantum of Solace and Spectre failed to resonate with critics quite like Skyfall and the rather excellent Casino Royale.

The big question now is, of course, whether Daniel Craig will pick up the license to kill for a fifth (and final?) time. Co-star Naomie Harris believes there’s a “very good chance” that Craig will get back in the hot seat, »

Purvis and Wade will return to write the next Bond movie

10 March 2017 12:37 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Neil Purvis and Robert Wade, the geniuses behind five James Bond films from The World Is Not Enough to Skyfall, are set to return to write the next film in the 007 franchise, which will be the 25th official movie in the series.

The Daily Mail’s Baz Bamigboye reports the news, but there is no word on Daniel Craig returning. He is technically under contract to do so, but hasn’t been confirmed so far.

There is no release date for the film as yet, but we’ve been getting them every three years or so until now. Following Spectre‘s release in 2015, we’re due one next year, but Eon, who produce the franchise, haven’t given official word as yet. The film will also need a new director as Sam Mendes, who helmed the last 007 adventure had previously confirmed that he wouldn’t be returning to helm a third. »
