James Bond author Anthony Horowitz dislikes Skyfall: 'He's weak - that's not Bond'

31 August 2015 5:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Author Anthony Horowitz has slated the 2012 James Bond film Skyfall, saying it makes him "angry".

Horowitz, who is currently writing the James Bond novel Trigger Mortis, picked apart the film's plot in a recent interview reported by The Mail.

Pussy Galore is back in the new James Bond book Trigger Mortis

While the author called Daniel Craig a "terrific" actor, and made it clear that he liked the "gritty" 2006 film Casino Royale, he said that he didn't care for either Quantum of Solace or Skyfall.

Horowitz said: "Quantum of Solace just went wrong. Skyfall is my least favourite. I know it is heresy to say so, but it is the one Bond film I have never liked."

Criticising the film, he went on to say: "Bond is weak in it. He has doubts. That's not Bond."

He added: "Secondly, the villain wins. The villain sets out to kill M. The »

James Bond author Anthony Horowitz lambasts recent films

31 August 2015 3:45 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Horowitz, the author of Trigger Mortis, the most recent Bond novel, praises Daniel Craig but criticises Skyfall and Quantum of Solace

The recent crop of Bond movies has come in for a lambasting from Anthony Horowitz, the latest author to join the 007 novel-writing franchise. Horowitz described the current onscreen incarnation of James Bond as “weak” and said that Skyfall was his least favourite of the entire film series.

In remarks reported by the Mail on Sunday to mark the publication of Trigger Mortis, the latest in the string of “continuation” Bond novels commissioned by Ian Fleming’s estate, Horowitz complimented Daniel Craig, calling him “terrific”, and said he admired the 2006 release Casino Royale (“a total return to the gritty seriousness of it”), but then laid into the follow-ups. The massively successful 2012 film Skyfall came in for particular criticism.

A $3,000 Scholarship for the Working Actor

19 August 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Friends and family of the late Hollywood casting director Dan Velez have started a scholarship in his honor to help struggling actors. Velez, who cast for shows such as “Comedy Bang! Bang!,” served as a casting associate for the James Bond film “Quantum of Solace,” and helped found Space Station Casting Studios alongside partner Sherri Henderson, was “a very passionate, intense guy, and often the actors he loved and related to were those [kinds of] actors,” friend and CEO of Space Station Ben Rovner told Backstage. “He’d always talk about how when you meet an actor, you could see their passion and their love for it.” The Dan Velez Scholarship Fund, which will be accepting essay submissions from Aug. 24 through Sept. 28, will provide three working actors with a $3,000 scholarship to help further their careers—whether that be paying for acting classes, vocal lessons, new headshots, or other acting-related expenses. “We’re »

‘Spectre’ Director Sam Mendes Says New James Bond Movie Is an Origin Story: ‘This Is Only the Beginning’

14 August 2015 10:57 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Director Sam Mendes has promised that we can anticipate a backstory about James Bond that has been previously unexplored in the upcoming Bond film, “Spectre.” “Bond has been rebooted at the end of the movie,” Mendes told EW, as he shared some cryptic information about the highly-anticipated film, which will hit theaters Nov. 6. “This is only the beginning of the story.” See Video: New 'Spectre' Trailer Teases Daniel Craig's 007 Going Rogue (Video) The director said that “Spectre” will bind together the three most recent Bond films all starring Daniel Craig, which include “Skyfall,” “Quantum of Solace” and “Casino Royale, »

Spectre Vlog Showcases The New Women In Bond’s Life

13 August 2015 9:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Ian West/Pa Wire

With the release of Spectre little more than two months away, Eon Picture, Sony and MGM have dropped a new Vlog, to help better acquaint you with the film’s female contingent.

Check it out below.

The Vlog gives both Lea Seydoux and Monica Bellucci a chance to gush about the franchise and their collaborators, without giving too much away concerning their roles in Spectre’s sure-to-be-twisty framework.

A good Bond girl is a key part of any good Bond outing, as some of Daniel Craig’s past credits will attest. Eva Green was an absolute scene-stealer in Casino Royale, whilst the disappointing Quantum of Solace can chalk-up Olga Kurylenko’s flat turn as one of its critical flaws.

Seydoux and Bellucci certainly emanate the ethereal, distrusting beauty that Bond girls are famed for, but whether they can match the complexity of an Eva Green is another matter. »

Learn More About The Women Of Spectre

13 August 2015 2:53 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

A new video blog from Spectre has come online, shedding light on two new characters, Lea Seydoux’s Madeline Swann and Monica Bellucci's Lucia Sciarra, two roles that, as director Sam Mendes puts it, “both have great mystery, they both have depths and for that you need great actresses”. We also find a connection between Spectre and earlier Bond adventures, with Swann being the daughter of the suave super spy’s old nemesis Mr. White (Jasper Christenson), last seen in Quantum of Solace. Released: 6th NovemberSynopsis: A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind Spectre. »

Roger Moore Back As James Bond In Spectre!

12 August 2015 12:39 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Roger Moore and Daniel Craig are positioned at polar opposite ends of the Bond spectrum. Both have great and not so great (Quantum of Solace, never forgive, never forget) credits as England’s spy du-jour, but their approaches contrast vastly. Moore a wise-cracking gentlemen, splitting his time between Playboy cover-girls of the 70s and foiling cartoonish schemes for world domination. Craig on the other hand broods and struggles his way through each adventure, with an “I’ll knock your shit in” attitude more inline with Ian Fleming’s novels.

But what would happen if Moore stepped into Craig’s darker, nastier world?

Well the chaps at Mars VFX have given us an indicator by cutting Moore into a trailer for upcoming Craig outing Spectre.

Pretty awesome right? Rather than contrasting the styles for comic effect, the trailer balances them to create an authentic looking hybrid. In fact, it tonally »

10 filmmakers who went from Indie Darling to Big Budget Blunder

11 August 2015 10:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the wake of Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four, Matthew Lee looks at ten filmmakers who went from Indie Darling to Big Budget Blunder…

Josh Trank’s debut, Chronicle, was a surprise hit of 2012. The film fused the found-footage genre with superhero tropes to create a coming-of-age story that was both fresh and exciting. Trank’s ability to transcend these tired trends and motifs made him an ideal candidate to finally do justice to the Fantastic Four franchise, one that had an unreleased early 90s film, and two poor mid-00s flicks. However, with production problems between Trank and cast members, and no advanced press screening, many pundits were concerned this would be a mess.

The results are in, and it is not only a poor film, but has been described as the worst reviewed Marvel film to-date. That’s not good. Trank responded openly via tweet to this, noting how Fox had – ah, »

'Show Me a Hero' director Paul Haggis on Oscars, TV, and his love of 'The Wire'

11 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The very first pilot I watched on this job was for a CBS drama called "Ez Streets." Created by Paul Haggis — then best known for creating "Due South," but most commercially successful for having helped develop the "Walker, Texas Ranger" pilot — it was essentially an HBO drama before such a thing existed: dark, dense, ambitious, heartbreaking, and addictive. It even featured Joe Pantoliano playing a sociopath gangster years before he won an Emmy for it on "The Sopranos" (and was, to my mind, better as Jimmy Murtha than as Ralphie Ciffaretto). It was also the first time I got my heart broken in this job. Despite rave reviews from me and my more established colleagues across the country, "Ez Streets" was Doa: CBS pulled it off the air after only two episodes had aired, and though most of the remaining episodes would air the following winter, it was just running out the string. »

Sony’s Tom Rothman Sets New Leadership Team for Columbia, TriStar (Exclusive)

6 August 2015 1:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Five months after being named head of Sony Pictures, Tom Rothman is making his first substantial restructuring of his leadership team — consolidating his position with the appointment of two new executives at the studio’s flagship Columbia Pictures and naming a new president of the TriStar label, according to a person familiar with the moves.

Rothman is moving his former right-hand from TriStar, David Beaubaire, to Columbia, where he will become an executive vice president of production. Beaubaire will be joined at Columbia by Palak Patel, who is leaving his post as president of production at Roth Films to also become exec VP of production at Columbia. Taking over Rothman’s former job as president of TriStar will be Hannah Minghella, who most recently served as co-head of production at Columbia.

All three of the newly appointed executives will report to Doug Belgrad, who remains president of Sony’s Motion Picture Group. »

The Strain season 2 episode 4 review: The Silver Angel

4 August 2015 12:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Strain kicks off with a brilliant first five minutes this week, then goes unfortunately downhill from there...

This review contains spoilers.

2.4 The Silver Angel

I was shocked to discover that there was something genuinely interesting in The Strain this week, an episode that wasn’t as predictable as I’ve come to expect.

The first five minutes are dedicated to a wonderfully bizarre black and white B-movie homage where a Mexican masked wrestler takes on vampires, and gets a dodgy knee for his troubles.

He’s played by the marvellously gruff Joaquín Cosio, who was in Quantum of Solace and El Narco among many other better things.

Unfortunately, this opening was 200% more compelling that the rest of the show. I can't be alone in wanting to know more about el Angel de Plata (the Silver Angel). By the end, all we’d managed to extract was that he now »

James Bond Returns in New Spectre Trailer

27 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Can we say that Daniel Craig incarnation of James Bond rivals Sean Connery’s at this point, or is that still considered blasphemy? Given that Skyfall (2012) is, at least until the release of Spectre, the most complete and entertaining Bond film ever produced, I wonder if we can’t mention the two actors in the same sentence without feeling the least bit guilty.

The new trailer for Spectre does very little to dissuade my enthusiasm for Craig and his Bond films (although Quantum of Solace (2008) was quite the follow-up to Casino Royale (2006) I was hoping for). The new film looks to continue the dark and menacing nature of these films, and I’m all for it; it’s a tone that works for Bond. Here’s hoping that the final film delivers the good that this trailer promises.

James Bond Meets the 'Author of All His Pain' In Explosive 'Spectre' Trailer

22 July 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Femme fatales, souped up cars and a mysterious villain in a Nehru jacket -- yep, it must be a new James Bond film! Sony released a brand new trailer for "Spectre" early this morning, giving us a better glimpse at Daniel Craig's next outing as 007. The clip sees our favorite secret agent bouncing between Mexico City, Rome, London and the Austrian Alps on a rogue mission to infiltrate a "sinister organization" known only as Spectre. With the aid of Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw), 007 tracks down Madeleine Swann (Lea Seydoux), the daughter of Mr. White -- who was previously seen in "Quantum of Solace" and "Casino Royale." This all leads him to Christoph Waltz's Franz Oberhauser, the head of the shadowy organization who has a "chilling connection" to Bond himself. "Welcome James, you come across me so many times, yet you never saw me. What took you so long? »

Spectre: breaking down the new trailer

22 July 2015 2:58 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Daniel Craig is back at James Bond 007 in Spectre. And the new trailer gives some clues as to what to expect. Here's our detailed look...

Blimey, it's hard to beat a good James Bond trailer these days. Mirroring the memorable marketing campaign for Skyfall, the new trailer for Sam Mendes' second Bond movie gives us far more to chew on than March's teaser. Our analysis of that one is here.

It also gives us an idea of how the film will go back to the basics of the series while simultaneously tying up loose ends from the previous three films starring Daniel Craig, by bringing back the titular criminal organisation from the original run. If you haven't watched the trailer yet, take a look at the embedded video below and then read on for some potentially spoilery analysis of what's going on...

New Spectre Trailer Is Awesome (And Pretty Much Confirms A Big Fan Theory)

22 July 2015 1:28 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

Is Christoph Waltz Blofeld? We still don’t know, but it’s certainly seeming that way – just look at that jacket he’s wearing in the brand new trailer.

Everyone’s been expecting the two-time Oscar winner to play the head of terrorist conglomerate Spectre since he was first rumoured to play the villain in the new 007 film, and every development – the film being called Spectre, him being the leader of the film’s organisation, – has backed that up. Sam Mendes and co. have obviously been trying to play it down, reaffirming he’s simply playing the contextually-cool Franz Oberhauser, but with that jacket (a modern update of the classic get up Ernst Stavro), the cat is definitely off the lap (unless Andrew Scott’s Denbigh is the real villain, but that’s a theory for another day).

Yes, a new trailer (the first full one after a run of teasers, »

Daniel Craig Kicks All the Ass in New 'Spectre' Trailer

21 July 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

James Bond's new movie seems hellbent on being bigger than the previous one.

The new trailer for "Spectre," which dropped today, shows 007 fighting, shooting and (naturally) car chasing his way through various European locals, in what looks to be the biggest Bond of Daniel Craig's career.

The 24th Bond film -- and Craig's fourth outing as the super spy -- pits 007 against a nemesis (Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz) from Bond's past. Their personal (and dangerous) relationship puts Bond on the trail of the evil titular organization -- traveling from Mexico, to Italy, to the Alps -- with lots of kick-punching bad guys along the way. (Think Blofeld-level bad.)

"Skyfall" director Sam Mendes returns for his second Bond film, and he is pulling out all the stops -- and we love the trailer's music cue that calls back to the them from "On Her Majesty's Secret Service."

If the trailer is any indication, »

James Bond Director Leaving The Franchise

20 July 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As many are still left wondering whether Daniel Craig will continue his Bond duties after Spectre, one of his crucial compatriots will definitely not: his director. Sam Mendes, who previously directed Craig in Skyfall, recently spoke about his future with the franchise and he was forthcoming about not returning.  According to the BBC, Mendes said:  I said no to the last one and then ended up doing it, and was pilloried by all my friends. But I do think this is probably it...I don't think I could go down that road again. You do have to put everything else on hold. Spectre marks Craig.s fourth foray as 007, but his second, Quantum of Solace, didn.t excite the fans as the producers probably hoped. Then Mendes stepped in and reinvigorated the franchise with Skyfall, but getting him to come back for Spectre was like pulling teeth. As he explained »
