From EW Archives: Roger Moore’s Charm in Person—and Why He Was the ‘Best Bond’

23 May 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Legendary British actor Roger Moore has died at the age of 89 after an iconic career on the silver screen — including his record time as James Bond. This 2008 interview from EW takes a look back at Moore’s career and how he became “the best Bond.”

“Can I get you a drink, Mr. Moore?”

The waiter stands there, secretly hoping that he’ll say those five words known from the beaches of Rio to the bazaars of Cairo to the ski slopes of Gstaad: Vodka martini—shaken, not stirred.

“I’ll have a…Bloody Mary.”

MGM First-Quarter Earnings Decline on Lack of a James Bond Movie

16 May 2017 3:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Privately held MGM has reported a 42% decline in first-quarter earnings to $35.2 million from $61 million in the year-ago quarter, when Daniel Craig’s “Spectre” was still in theaters.

Revenues also declined 15% to $264 million from $311.3 million. MGM released James Bond movie “Spectre” — which grossed $880 million worldwide — in late 2015 while its only theatrical release during the 2017 quarter was horror-thriller “The Belko Experiment,” which grossed $10 million domestically for Bh Tilt. Film division revenue fell 36% to $155 million.

MGM’s TV division, led by Mark Burnett, saw revenues soar 75% to $86 million, thanks to “Survivor,” “The Voice,” and “Vikings.”

MGM also reported Tuesday that adjusted Ebitda slid 29% to $88.3 million. MGM cited continued strong performance of TV content business, which grew 26% primarily due to deliveries of new shows, including “Steve Harvey’s Funderdome,” and partial deliveries of “Vikings” (season 5), “Fargo” (season 3), and “The Handmaid’s Tale” (season 1).

Adjusted Ebitda for film content included the pay television premieres of »

Sherlock director rumored to be in running for Bond 25

2 May 2017 1:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to rumours, Eon Productions may have identitied Sam Mendes’ successor for Bond 25, with Paul McGuigan said to be in consideration for the coveted position.

“Word is, the producers are so pleased with Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, directed by Scotsman Paul McGuigan (SherlockLucky Number Slevin,” Victor Frankenstein), that he too is under consideration,” reports Indiewire. “Barbara Broccoli has long preferred to hire directors with arthouse cred over mainstream action specialists, from Oscar-winning American Beauty director Sam Mendes (Spectre and Skyfall) to Monster’s Ball director Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace). Based on his tenure with the BBC One Sherlock series, and his handling of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Holmes and Watson, McGuigan would be a prime choice for a quirkier yet still compelling spin on Bond.”

Take all of this with a huge grain of salt. As one should with any rumor that starts with : “Word is… »

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, »

‘Bond 25’: Why The Next Director Could Be Indie

1 May 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After the start of last week’s bidding war with five Hollywood studios, rumors are swirling that as producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli of Eon Productions (franchise co-owners with MGM) move closer to nailing down a creative direction for “Bond 25″ with screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the Bond team is leaning indie with their list of potential directors.

Word is, the producers are so pleased with”Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool,” directed by Scotsman Paul McGuigan (“Sherlock,” “Lucky Number Slevin,” “Victor Frankenstein”), that he too is under consideration. Annette Bening stars as actress Gloria Grahame, who falls in love with a young actor (Jamie Bell).

Broccoli has long preferred to hire directors with arthouse cred over mainstream action specialists, from Oscar-winning “American Beauty” director Sam Mendes (“Spectre” and “Skyfall”) to “Monster’s Ball” director Marc Forster (“Quantum of Solace”).

Hollywood Wonders if Writers Guild Will Strike for Seventh Time

30 April 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If the Writers Guild of America walks out Tuesday, it will be the guild’s seventh strike since 1960. And if history is an indicator, it will likely last for several months. All six strikes have lasted for at least three months, except for a two-week walkout in 1985.

The most recent strike remains fresh in the minds of show business, even though it took place nearly a decade ago. The acrimonious 100-day work stoppage, fueled by the WGA’s demand for new media residuals and jurisdiction, started Nov. 5, 2007, and ended Feb. 12, 2008.

The most affected were late-night staples, scripted series, and shows such as “30 Rock” and “The Simpsons,” which were forced to shorten their seasons. Films that were in production, such as the James Bond movie “Quantum of Solace,” were unable to use screenwriters for script revisions. Ceremonies for the 65th Golden Globe Awards were replaced by a news conference where the »

Ewan McGregor circles Winnie The Pooh film Christopher Robin

27 April 2017 10:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Apr 28, 2017

Ewan McGregor is in talks to star in Christopher Robin, playing an adult version of Winnie the Pooh's pal.

Christopher Robin, Disney’s upcoming live-action film continuation of the Winnie The Pooh story, appears to have found its star in Ewan McGregor.

According to THR, McGregor is in talks to headline the live-action film, taking on the title role of Christopher Robin, directly drawn from author A.A. Milne’s Winnie The Pooh stories. However, this particular Pooh project – not to be confused with this November’s A.A. Mile biopic Goodbye Christopher Robin – will see McGregor play an adult version of Christopher, stuck in an especially humdrum period in his life, focused on his career as a businessman and far-removed from his halcyon childhood days of imagination-fueled pastoral hijinks with anthropomorphic stuffed animals such as Pooh Bear, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet and Rabbit.

Christopher Robin will be directed by Marc Forster. »

Sony Distribution Chief Rory Bruer Retires After 40 Years at Studio

27 April 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rory Bruer is retiring as head of worldwide distribution at Sony Pictures after four decades at the studio.

Sony does not plan to directly replace him. Bruer, who has deep ties with theater owners, will segue into an advisory role at the studio. Adrian Smith and Steven O’Dell will handle domestic and international distribution, respectively. They will report directly to Josh Greenstein, president of worldwide marketing and distribution.

“Though I knew in my heart that the time was right to begin to pull back, it’s hard to let go of a place that has been a part of my life for so long — so when they asked me to stay on as an advisor, I jumped at the chance,” Bruer wrote in a letter to staff. “Not everybody gets to begin this next chapter on their own terms, and I’m very grateful for the opportunity.”

Ewan McGregor in talks to play Disney’s adult Christopher Robin

Author: Zehra Phelan

The world and his wife seem to be teaming up with Disney in one form or another, and hot on the heels of the live-action Beauty and the Beast, which saw Ewan McGregor play the suave French candelabra Lumière, it has surfaced that McGregor is in talks to take the lead in their upcoming take on an adult Christopher Robin.

Christopher Robin was the child in the A.A. Milne Winnie the Pooh stories, however, Disney’s new venture will focus on Robin as an adult, a businessman focused on his work and success and who has lost his childlike sense of imagination. The young Robin was in fact inspired and named after Milne’s own son in the Winnie the Pooh books and poems which Disney also adapted on numerous occasions for the animation market.

Dave Bautista Wants to Return in James Bond 25

25 April 2017 5:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For about a year and a half, we have all been in something of a holding pattern waiting to hear what is ultimately going to become of the next James Bond movie. Much of that hinges on whether or not Daniel Craig actually decides to return for one more movie but, if he does, some other people want back in on the action. Namely, Dave Bautista, who played the brooding henchman Mr. Hinx in Spectre.

The former wrestling star who has managed to transition into a pretty successful acting career is currently making the press rounds for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, as he is returning as Drax for a second time. If he has things his way, he'd like to return for James Bond 25 as well. Speaking with Metro recently, Dave Bautista revealed that he definitely wants back in for the next installment, but that isn't really up to him. »

James Bond Currently In The Throes Of A Bidding War

21 April 2017 2:40 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

While 2015 may have brought about a tepid return for James Bond to the big screen, it did have the potential to mean something more to the franchise. With the release of Spectre, it saw the conclusion of Sony Pictures Entertainment’s distribution contract with MGM and Eon Productions, both of whom control the destiny of the MI6 agent, James Bond.

Back in 2006, when Casino Royale hit theaters, the spy was under the distribution care and expertise of Sony, and with that contract officially ended, Bond is now a free agent. While on Sony’s watch, Bond has done pretty well for himself, taking in over $3.1 billion over the past four films (Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre). This makes James Bond quite the hot commodity for MGM and Eon, and they are taking advantage.

According to TheWrap, there are five studios currently locked in an intense bidding war »

5 Different Studios Are Fighting for James Bond Movie Rights

20 April 2017 4:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While fans are still wondering whether or not Daniel Craig will return as 007, the James Bond franchise faces another big change. Sony Pictures' distribution and marketing agreement with MGM and Eon Productions ended after the divisive 2015 film Spectre, with the rights now currently up for grabs. A new report claims that Sony is one of five studios who are vying to get the rights for one of the longest-running franchises of all time.

The New York Times reports that Sony Pictures, Warner Bros., Universal Pictures, 20th Century Fox and Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures is now in the running, with both Disney and Paramount bowing out of the proceedings. On Tuesday, Sony brought in CEO Kazuo Hirai to help with the studio's pitch, which emphasized their decade-long tradition of 007 movies. Their pitch was even made on a soundstage, on a set re-created from the very first James Bond movie, Dr. No, »

Five Studios Competing To Land Distribution Rights To The James Bond Franchise

20 April 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The race to land distribution rights for James Bond is beginning to heat up – and fast! – what with Warner Bros., Universal, 20th Century Fox, and Annapurna all reportedly vying for the IP.

That’s according to a new report from The New York Times, revealing that MGM and Eon, the two companies currently in control of the film rights, are soliciting pitches from all parties – that’s including Sony, which held a deal for the previous four films in the spy series: Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre. Nyt notes that this potential agreement would be for a one-picture contract, meaning it would only encompass the fabled Bond 25.

Putting the Daniel Craig saga to one side for the time being, the release of Spectre was always poised to instigate a sea change for 007, and when news broke that the film rights were about to revert back to »

The 50 Greatest Car Chases in Film: Part 2

19 April 2017 8:17 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Fast and Furious movies aren't the only ones with great car chases. Join us as we take a look at the 50 best car chase scenes in film. This week, we're counting down from #25 to #1!

Like peanut butter and jelly, car chases and movies are two things that just go together perfectly. A chase is inherently interesting to watch - someone is trying their best to get away by any means possible, while the other party is trying to stop them from doing so. The danger involved, the threat of violence, and even the thrill of the hunt are all part of why we often can’t look away. A car chase is the next level of chase. They are fast - an embodiment of man and machine together. They are also dangerous - the stakes are incredibly high, and not just for the people involved in the chase.

An Aggregated Oral History of 2009 Films Ruined By the Last WGA Strike

18 April 2017 12:51 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The last time Hollywood writers walked out seeking a better deal, there were consequences for several tentpoles and would-be franchises.

Hollywood is facing the threat of another Writers’ Guild Strike, one which would immediately stop all writing and rewriting on guild signatory productions — essentially everything from the major studios. So far, negotiations have been contentious, with the WGA arguing that though the business has seen record profits, the average writer’s income has declined in this boom period. And yet, at the bargaining table, the AMPTP — who represent the producers — came offering not gains, but rollbacks. They basically asked the writers to accept less than their current contracts.

The total cost of what the writers are asking for is not particularly excessive. For instance, the cost to Disney would be $21.2 million a year — barely more than half of Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger’s $43.9 million salary last year. I don’t want to get too far »

Gal Gadot Reveals the Secret Behind Her Wonder Woman Audition

While last year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice wasn't exactly a critical success, the film did fare well at the box office ($873.2 million worldwide), while introducing Ben Affleck's Batman and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman into the Dceu. This summer, Gal Gadot will bring her Themyscira princess back to the big screen in the stand alone adventure Wonder Woman, which hits theaters on June 2. While promoting the upcoming movie, the actress revealed that she had a secret weapon that helped her prepare for her Batman v Superman audition, which obviously worked, while her Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins explained why the actress is the perfect choice for Diana of Themyscira.

W Magazine recently published a new profile on the actress, who says she didn't even want to get into acting after being crowned Miss Israel in 2004, when a producer approached her for the Bond girl role in Quantum of Solace »
