These gorgeous women are in all senses perfect. They are clever, even brilliant, beautiful, kind, loving, stylish and tender.
The modern parts of James Bond movie were successful as never before. It is a rule that each new task for James Bond means a new location and people around. The same is about women in his life. Each new mission means that James Bond falls in love with the new woman. Now it is hard to imagine any plot without romance between a wonderful clever girl and 007 agent.
Let’s remind the hottest girls of James Bond in the latest time.
The movie “Casino Royal” from 2006 was more than successful. The popularity was not only because of Daniel Craig starring, but also because of the splendid characters like Eva Green and Caterina Murino. With them 007 agent overcame troubles and became a winner. Such ladies are present in the casinos as well, »

Deadline are reporting the news of the pair’s casting in a film that is said to be set against a backdrop of rising tensions in Los Angeles during the Rodney King trial in 1992. Craig is set to play Ollie, ‘a loner who lives in South Central — one of its only white residents — who befriends Berry’s character, a tough, protective mother who looks after a group of kids. When the riots explode in the city, Craig’s character helps Berry, who is secretly in love with him, try and track down the kids from the worst of the violence.’

If you think the chances of the next James Bond being female are up there with the disappointingly long odds on Captain America starting to date men, here’s a polite history lesson. If it hadn’t been for 2002’s Die Another Day firing blanks with the critics, a suave female super spy operating in the same film universe as 007 might already have sipped down her first minimally mixed martini.
Studio MGM once planned to give Halle Berry’s Giacinta “Jinx” Johnson her own spin-off following the Nsa agent’s appearance alongside Pierce Brosnan in Lee Tamahori’s disastrous turn at the Bond helm. Naturally, the idea was swiftly dropped down an industrial chimney after the 20th 007 adventure, with its invisible »

We all knew this was coming. By we, I mean the legion of James Bond fans and aficionados who have followed the bizarre media whirlwind that seems to forever cascade around 007 himself, Daniel Craig. The Daily Fail (sorry, Mail!) apparently claimed Craig is done – that soon after the release of Spectre he turned down (say it like Dr Evil) 100 million dollars to return not just for Bond 25 but also Bond 26, claiming to Eon Productions and MGM bosses that his tenure was over. Everyone clamoured over this scant piece of pure rumour, to the point almost of hysteria, until the BBC later waded in and claimed what we all suspected all along – that Craig hasn’t made his mind up yet, and likely won’t for quite some time. Why should he? Bond 25 is a long way off, given the »

Though Spectre may not have been the massive critical and financial home run that Skyfall was, the fact of the matter is that the film was still very financially successful and Sony and MGM appear to really want Daniel Craig back for at least one more James Bond adventure. However, Craig appeared to be very worn out on the role during the press tour for Spectre, and there were a lot of indications he was totally done with the role. Today, a new report from BBC News gives fans hope that Craig may still come back for James Bond 25.
According to a report by the BBC, "authoritative Bond sources" have confirmed that Craig has not made a firm decision about his future with the franchise yet and that "no decision is likely to be made for a while." Though that means both the studio and fans may have to just be patient, »
In 2006, Daniel Craig brought his version of James Bond to life for the first time with Casino Royale. Now, ten years later, Craig has turned in four performances as Bond. And though he reportedly has a film or two left on his contract, the future is very uncertain as to whether or not he will return for a fifth and presumably final turn as 007. In fact, many signs point to Spectre being the last film in the Daniel Craig Bond era, for better or for worse. But we think he should come back for at least one more adventure, and finish what he started.
During the press tour for Spectre last year, Craig made it very clear that he was less than interested in playing the character again. Speaking with Britain's Time Out, just after filming on Spectre wrapped, Craig had this to say in regards to whether or not »
Nobody thought Jason Bourne was gone forever. Not even when Tony Gilroy’s misjudged The Bourne Legacy attempted to relaunch the franchise, sans Bourne himself, did people truly believe we’d seen the last of probably the greatest cinematic super spy of the modern age. The trailer for Jason Bourne landed this week, the brand new fifth film in the franchise which sees Matt Damon return in the titular role (stripped back to just the name, a la Jack Ryan or Jack Reacher), and most excitingly of all paired with director Paul Greengrass who took the already impressive work of Doug Liman on The Bourne Identity and built on it wonderfully with The Bourne Supremacy (still the best one) and The Bourne Ultimatum. After the open-ended conclusion to that film, ending the trilogy of Bourne coming »

Gambling has become a part of the movies, and indeed television as well. In a recent episode of the new HBO TV show Vinyl, which is executive produced by filmmaking legend Martin Scorsese, Terence Winter and none other than Mick Jagger, the show’s protagonist Richie Finestra (played by Bobby Canavale) was seen pushing $90,000 onto the roulette table after selling the company’s private jet.
It’s quite a powerful and brave scene, but of course film and television content have had a long relationship, and with free online pokies featuring famous properties, including Game Of Thrones and even the classic Hitchcock film Psycho, their tie is becoming even greater. The worlds of gambling and film and TV are becoming more aligned.
Vinyl may be the latest TV show to feature gambling, but it certainly wasn’t the first. Here, we take a look at our favourite gambling scenes from the movies, »

With winter finally showing signs of relinquishing its icy grip, it’s time to get outside and breathe in that fresh spring air. Of course, film nerdiness does involve a lot of sitting in darkened rooms, shovelling handfuls of popcorn in the vague direction of your mouth and shunning the contact of all fellow humans who aren’t comfortable with the phrase ‘movie marathon’… but it doesn’t have to be confined entirely to that.
There are a handful of fantastic attractions, parks and tours across the UK designed to pander to the delights of the movie buff and satiate their thirst for trivia and behind-the-scenes sneak peeks. So brush those crumbs off your chest, wipe the sleep from your eyes and get out and about and sample one of these three great days out for film nerds.

The show, which is produced by Carnival Films from an original idea by comic book legend Lee, has proven to be Sky 1’s highest-rated original drama series ever, and is also the most-watched programme on the Now TV streaming service.

Halle Berry, who as the character Jinx Johnson famously strolled out of the sea to join forces with James Bond in 2002’s Die Another Day, is about to step into another super-spy franchise. The actress is in talks to play a CIA head opposite Taron Egerton in Kingsman 2, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Director Matthew Vaughn is currently assembling the elements for the sequel to his surprise hit Kingsman: The Secret Service, which grossed more than $414 million worldwide when it was released by Fox in 2015. Berry, who is repped by CAA and Management 360, will next

Remember the old days when unpredictable occurrences seemed to predictably occur at the Oscars ceremony? There was the nude streaker who failed to unravel the ever-unflappable David Niven. There were the political activist winners who used the forum to grandstand for their favorite causes. This included Vanessa Redgrave's pro-Palestinian, anti-Zionist remarks during her acceptance speech, Marlon Brando sending a surrogate to reject his "Godfather" Oscar in protest of Hollywood's treatment of Native Americans, "Patton" winner George C. Scott refusing to show up at all in protest of the competitive nature of awards shows, the producers of the anti-Vietnam War documentary "Hearts and Minds" taking solace that that the nation was about to be "liberated" by a brutal communist regime, which caused another stir when Frank Sinatra was pushed on stage at Bob Hope's urging to read a hastily-scribbled denouncement of the remark. The Oscars haven't »

Following Skyfall was never going to be easy, but no one could have predicted just how disappointing Spectre would end up being. With 64% on Rotten Tomatoes and a worldwide haul of $879 million, the movie fell short of its predecessor’s 93% and $1.1 billion, and following reports that the budget spiralled out of control along the way, MGM now has the challenge of getting the franchise back on the right track.
The “Sony Hack” emails revealed early on that there were some pretty major behind the scenes issues with Spectre, and while the movie was far from a franchise killer, it certainly made it clear that the time for 007 to get rebooted is long overdue. Like Casino Royale back in 2006, James Bond needs to undergo a pretty drastic transformation because another Spectre could take us back to the dark times of Die Another Day.
So, what needs to be done »

I still can't believe I'm saying this. Lee Tamahori, director of Die Another Day (one of my least favorite Bond movies) and other junk like xXx: State of the Union, has actually made a rather wonderful film. I'll admit - I kinda loved it. Maybe because I really had no idea what to expect. The Patriarch, also known as Mahana, is a film about the Mahana family in New Zealand. It's set during the 1960s and focuses on one boy in the family named Simeon, played by Akuhata Keefe who is the only one, out of about 20 members, to ever challenge and speak out against the patriarch of the family, played by Temuera Morrison. It's an uplifting story about how things can change over generations, and it's just as fun to watch as it is inspiring. On paper, The Patriarch sounds like it's a powerful drama about how one man rules over an entire family. »

The Patriarch review: Lee Tamahori returns to his homeland for this decent, though slightly overcooked family drama set in 1960s rural New Zealand.
The Patriarch review by Paul Heath, Berlin, 2016. Lee Tamahori, the New Zealand-born director who directed the superb We Were Warriors back in 1994, and then went to Hollywood to helm big-budget action films like Next with Nicolas Cage, xXx 2: The Next Level (aka State Of The Union), The Devil’s Double and even a James Bond film in Die Another Day, returns to his homeland for The Patriarch, a drama/western led by Temuera Morrison.
The film is set in rural New Zealand in the 1960s, based upon the novel by Whale Rider author Witi Ithimmaera‘s novel. Morrison’s character, Grandfather Tamihana Mahana, the mentioned patriarch in the title, leads a family of sheep-shearers and farmers living off the land. Amongst them is 14-year-old Simeon, a »

Seen through the eyes of a Maori teen on the brink of manhood, “The Patriarch” plays like a classic Western as it proudly expands the still-limited canon of essential films about New Zealand’s tribal people, telling of a young man who dares to stand up to both his domineering grandfather and The Man at a time when equality and respect were in short supply for natives. Adapted from “The Whale Rider” author Witi Ihimaera’s most personal novel, “Bulibasha: King of the Gypsies,” this well-crafted (and wisely retitled) 1960s family saga marks a return to Maori roots for “Once Were Warriors” helmer Lee Tamahori, who went off and made a series of blockbuster action movies, including “Die Another Day” and “The Edge,” before landing in director jail with “The Devil’s Double.” What better way to regroup than by tackling such a sincere homage to his homeland, which blends »

Media reps attending the press conference that followed were treated to philosophical discussions on Maori culture, John Ford westerns, the role of gender in society and were left ultimately stunned by a Maori haka impressively performed by actors Temuera Morrison and Akuhata Keefe.
The film, which marks the director’s return to his native New Zealand, is an adaptation of “Whale Rider” author Witi Ihimaera’s autobiographical novel. The story centers on a Maori family in the 1960s that is shaken by a teenager’s rejection of tradition as he grows close to the daughter of a rival clan.
Morrison, who toplined Tamahori’s 1994’s “Once Were Warriors,” plays the authoritarian family patriarch who sees it as his responsibility to keep the family together, »

"This country is great because of hard working men. Don't let us forget who our friends are, nor who are our enemies." eOne in Australia has debuted the first official trailer for the film The Patriarch, otherwise known as Mahana down in New Zealand, the latest drama from filmmaker Lee Tamahori (who previously made films like The Edge and Die Another Day before circling back around). The film tells a tale of family rivalry and reconciliation, set against the stunning backdrop of rural New Zealand in the 1960's. Temuera Morrison stars as Grandfather Mahana, along with Akuhata Keefe and many other fresh young faces. This trailer starts fairly slow, but picks up and becomes something quite beautiful and alluring by the end. Here's the first trailer for Lee Tamahori's The Patriarch, or Mahana, on YouTube (via The Film Stage): 1960s, East Coast of New Zealand. Two Maori sheep-shearing families, »

Lee Tamahori is best known as the journeyman director of disposable action films like Next, XXX: State of the Union, and the bizarre, awful James Bond installment, Die Another Day, but the New Zealand director is cinematic royalty in his own country. In 2014, New Zealand conducted the first survey of Kiwi national cinema, and voters picked Tamahori’s break-out 1994 film, Once Were Warriors, as the best film, rounding out established favorites like Peter Jackson’s Heavenly Creatures and Jane Campion’s The Piano.
Following 2011’s flawed but interesting The Devil’s Double, Tamahori will release two films this year, Emperor, a period piece revenge story, and the prestige picture, The Patriarch, which we have the first trailer for today. Based on the book, “Bulibasha” by Witi Ihimaera, who wrote the Whale Rider, The Patriarch follows the story of two Maori families who have had a feud that’s been generations long, »

Daniel Craig’s fourth or Roger Moore’s eighth? The former of course but you get the point. The almost-realistic stylings of early Craig have given way to the full blown pantomime excess of mid-Moore (or late Connery, in fairness). Desert lairs, endless car chases, free-wheelin’ helicopters and indestructible airplanes are all very much back in vogue. The result is a largely enjoyable, extremely silly film which attempts to tie previous Craig outings together at the expense of consistency and logic. There isn’t a plot: more a succession of scenes stitched together. And it still can’t manage a decent finale! Fun but ultimately frivolous. Now who does that remind me of?
