15 Terrible Mistakes That Almost Ruined James Bond For Everyone

29 September 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

MGM

The James Bond franchise is one of the longest-running movie series in the history of cinema, and over the course of its 24-film tenure, has managed to rank #3 in the highest-grossing movie franchises of all time (behind Harry Potter and the Marvel Cinematic Universe). Its iconic status and immense popularity categorically cannot be denied, yet at the same time, it’s not exactly had a consistent track record over the years, with the various changing-up of actors and creative strategies making for countless Bond moments fans would rather just forget (and no, this isn’t just picking on the Roger Moore years).

These poor decisions made viewers wince and cringe rather than feel the thrill of the spy’s best efforts: this includes poorly-cast Bond girls, behind-the-scenes issues which hampered creativity, unsavoury cameos, tonal problems, dubious disguises, bad CGI, and some awful directorial decisions. So egregious were some of »

David Arnold: 'I'd go back to James Bond in a heartbeat'

29 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

While no-one can touch John Barry at the top of the James Bond music pyramid, the only person that even comes close is David Arnold.

Arnold scored five James Bond films, from 1997's Tomorrow Never Dies to 2008's Quantum of Solace, but was replaced for Skyfall by Sam Mendes's usual music man Thomas Newman.

James Bond will return. So will Sam Mendes. But will Arnold be back in the studio filling in the gaps between what he calls "the explosions and the car squeals and the gear changes and the punctures"?

Ahead of his Bose Universal Conductor live immersive collaboration with Ella Eyre, Digital Spy caught up with the composer, and when we finished grilling him on all things Doctor Who, we got round to 007.

"I always said that I'd go back if they asked me," Arnold said when we brought up the inevitable.

Watch: New U.S. Trailer for Mathieu Amalric’s Sexy Cannes Drama ‘The Blue Room’

20 September 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With recent turns in films like “Venus in Fur” and “Quantum of Solace,” among many others, Mathieu Amalric has shown that he’s just as comfortable in front of the camera as he is behind it. In fact, in his latest film, “The Blue Room,” he does double duty, both starring in and directing the sexually charged crime thriller. He actually adapted the script from Georges Simenon’s novel too, showing he is indeed a man with many talents. We’ve seen a couple of Nsfw international trailers, but with a domestic release on the horizon, we now have a toned down version for American audiences. The film screened earlier this year at Cannes (read our review here, which calls it “a compelling argument about the dangers of lovers’ chit-chat in a state of post-coital distraction,” and how many movies can you say that about?) in the Un Certain Regard section. »

11 September 2014 4:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month it was revealed that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is to add Mockingbird to the cast of the ABC show for its upcoming second season, with Adrianne Palicki (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) securing the role of super spy Bobbi Morse, and now showrunners Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen have talked about introducing the fan favourite character, as well as expanding the roster for the second season of the Marvel series.

“We’re very excited to have the beloved character, Mockingbird, on the show,” Tancharoen tells Cbr. “Adrianne Palicki was a perfect fit for the role. She was someone we pictured from the beginning. It’s thrilling to have a nice, sort of skilled, sexy spy in the mix. And I think with the handful of characters that we have added to the show, it’s just to illustrate what the new S.H.I.E.L.D. may look like. Coulson is operating with limited resources, »

Bond 24 Wishlist: 10 Things That Must Happen

29 August 2014 11:58 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

MGM

As the year begins to wind down, we’re drawing ever closer to the production on Bond 24 beginning, with Daniel Craig stepping up to the plate as Bond for the fourth time, while Skyfall director Sam Mendes returns to helm, and John LoganNeal Purvis and Robert Wade once again write the script. Expectations are sky-high following Skyfall, which was easily one of Bond’s best outings in recent memory and even arguably ever, but what can Mendes and co. do to ensure the 24th Bond flick continues that upswing in quality after the disappointing, underwhelming Quantum of Solace?

Well, given that the script is basically finished, they won’t have any excuses as Craig and director Marc Forster did with Solace (which was messily cobbled together during the Writer’s Strike). To date virtually nothing is known about the project beyond mere rumours, and so we’ve »

'November Man's' Olga Kurylenko on getting to work with two different Bonds

27 August 2014 7:57 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Most actresses will never get the opportunity to work with a single James Bond, much less two. But then Olga Kurylenko - who starred in "Quantum of Solace" opposite Daniel Craig before signing on for the new Pierce Brosnan spy film "The November Man" - isn't most actresses. "It could have been a second Bond," said Kurylenko of the new film, in which she plays a woman who falls under the protection of Brosnan's ex-cia agent. "We just went through tons of action and Pierce is...he's got all those skills. He is that other James Bond...he still is. It was an honor to work with him, really. Because I admire him as an actor. And not only in James Bond, I mean all the other films he's done. He always has so much charm about him and such elegance. Very British." So how do the two Bonds compare to each other? »

Film Review: 'The November Man'

26 August 2014 9:52 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Twelve years. That's how long it's been since Pierce Brosnan last portrayed James Bond on the silver screen. That history, where he played the iconic British agent for four films, is what the producers of The November Man are hoping will draw you to their movie. Even the tag line, "A spy is never out of the game" is meant to convey the idea that "he's back!" Much of the promotional work for the film centers around "Look! It's Pierce Brosnan, back as a spy!" even though it has little to do with the movie. The idea that his character, Peter Devereaux, was ever "out" of the spy world and returns to it is barely emphasized in the actual film. It's clear this is all about Brosnan. And to really drive that point home, they even cast a former Bond Girl to run around with him through exotic locales.

The November Man – The Review

26 August 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

With apologies to Irving Berlin and Annie Oakley, for Hollywood there’s no business like spy business, especially in the last decade or so. Now, secret agents and undercover operatives have been the protagonists of thrillers since the silent movie era. But things really popped in those swingin’ sixties when 007 twirled around and fired at the camera lens. Bond is the franchise that would never die and aside from Matt Helm and Derek Flint in that early decade, never had any serious competition until Matt Damon floated up as Jason Bourne a dozen years ago. He ushered in an era of more realistic, grittier spies who also helped inspire new film versions of the works of John le Carre’ such as the recent A Most Wanted Man. Much in this same vein comes The November Man, a flick combining the mystery and deception of that author along with that brutal Bourne action. »

Bond 24 Villain Could Be a Bigger Adversary for Daniel Craig

23 August 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I’m one of the people who thought Skyfall was an incredible Bond film.  Between that and Casino Royale (I sort of consider Quantum of Solace to be an interstitial film, almost a short) I actually feel like James Bond is almost a current, relevant character (despite some of the old-fashioned fan service).  So I remain excited for Bond 24 even though it feels like something of a troubled production (the delays, the extensive reworking of the script etc…) because I think Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig really got it right last time. We last heard that  Léa Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Color) was in talks to join the film and now we have another bit of casting info on one of the villains of the piece that doesn’t result in a particular performer just yet, but it does indicate a certain (almost retro) direction the franchise could be headed in. »
