Author of latest 007 novel lambasts recent Bond films

9 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Anthony 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 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.

Daniel Craig Talks Wife Rachel Weisz: She's "Best" at Saying No to Fan Photos

26 August 2015 1:21 PM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Just some advice if you’re a fan of Daniel Craig’s— don’t sneak a photo of him if you’re at the same bar. The Skyfall star told DuJour magazine that he can’t stand when fans try to discreetly take his photo. “Bars are hard [for me to go to], but that’s more because of mobile phones. I’ll do autographs all day long, and I’ll even do a picture at the end of an evening. But if I’m being photographed all night long in a bar, that pisses me [...] »

A Gay 007 Probably Won't Happen

26 August 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One thing that's key to James Bond's character, especially in the films, is his seduction of women. That bed-hopping and chauvinistic attitude are a key element that very much defines the character, a coping mechanism to deal with the darkness of his job.

So it comes as a surprise that in a new interview with Details, former Bond star Pierce Brosnan was asked his opinion regarding changing the iconic secret agent's sexuality.

Discussing his happiness at the growing acceptance of the Lgbt community in his home country of Ireland, he was straight up asked if we would ever get to see a gay James Bond:

"Sure. Why not? Actually, I don't know how it would work. I don't think [producer] Barbara [Broccoli] would allow a gay Bond to happen in her lifetime. But it would certainly make for interesting viewing."

Pierce Brosnan thinks a gay James Bond would be "interesting" but doubts we'll see one in the near future

26 August 2015 1:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Pierce Brosnan has given his support to a gay James Bond, but has his doubts about it actually happening.

The Irish actor was talking about the legalisation of same-sex marriage in his homeland when the subject of a gay 007 came up.

Speaking to Details, his initial reply was: "Sure. Why not?"

However, he then added: "Actually, I don't know how it would work. I don't think Barbara [Broccoli, the James Bond producer] would allow a gay Bond to happen in her lifetime. But it would certainly make for interesting viewing."

Brosnan's comments follow a homoerotic scene in Skyfall, which saw Javier Bardem's Silva express sexual interest in Daniel Craig's Bond.

When Silva unbuttoned his shirt and made a sexually-charged remark, Bond responded: "What makes you think this is my first time?"

At the time, Craig said that Bond is definitely not gay, and that Bardem's villain would "f**k anything".

Meanwhile, Brosnan also »

Check Out This Excellent Daniel Craig Era James Bond Tribute Video

25 August 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You don't trust anyone, do you James?" It may be a bit too early to be posting a tribute to the Daniel Craig era of James Bond movies, considering we're still in the midst of it, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy one anyway. YouTube user Steven Thomas has edited together an excellent five minute tribute to Daniel Craig as Agent 007 in anticipation of his fourth movie coming up, Spectre, directed by Sam Mendes arriving in theaters this November. Roger Moore made seven Bond movies, Sean Connery made six (not counting Never Say Never Again), so Craig has a few to go to match them. I'm very excited for Spectre and I'm hoping it's as good as if not better than Skyfall. In the meantime, watch this 007 tribute in full below.

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Cinematography

18 August 2015 9:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After many loses, Emmanuel Lubezki finally won an Oscar two years ago for "Gravity," and then managed to do so again a year later for "Birdman." And it looks very likely he'll be in the conversation once again for his re-team with "Birdman" director Alejandro G. Inarritu on “The Revenant" -- which looks stunning as far as the trailer is concerned.  But can he really win three in a row? His competition appears to potentially once again be Roger Deakins, who has been nominated 12 times now without a win, including the last three years (for "Skyfall," "Prisoners" and "Unbroken," respectively). Deakins is in the running this time around for "Sicario," a re-team with his "Prisoners" collaborator Denis Villenueve. So wil it be Deakins v. Lubezki 3.0? Or will the respected likes of Dariusz Wolski ("The Martian" or "The Walk"), John Seale ("Mad Max: Fury Road"), Robert »

Sam Mendes Will Focus On Origins Of “How Bond Became Bond” With Spectre

17 August 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having stood the test of time for over 60 years, few characters in popular culture can hold a candle to James Bond. Ian Fleming’s indelible super-spy made his bow in the original Casino Royale back in ’53 and since then, his globe-trotting adventures have entertained readers and viewers for generations. Then again, with so many directors, novelists and actors adding their own idiosyncrasies to the 00 agent, his origin story has been left largely unexplored, and that’s precisely the area that Sam Mendes will explore in this year’s Spectre – albeit it with a twist.

Per Entertainment Weekly, the director touched upon his approach to Bond’s legacy, and how he believes Skyfall – the most recent in the longrunning series and the only one to grace $1 billion – left audiences at the beginning of the rebooted story.

“Bond has been rebooted at the end of the movie. This is only the beginning »

Sam Mendes says “Bond has been rebooted” for Spectre

15 August 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from the latest featurette focussing on the women of Spectre [watch it here], Entertainment Weekly caught up with director Sam Mendes, who suggested that Bond “has been rebooted” with Skyfall, and the upcoming 24th adventure will explore 007’s origin story.

“Bond has been rebooted at the end of the movie,” states Mendes. “This is only the beginning of the story. The Bond creation myth never happened. I felt there was an opportunity there: What made him? And who were the people who affected him along the way? You’re sort of telling the story backwards of how Bond became Bond.”

Spectre is set for release in the UK on October 23rd in the UK and November 6th in the States. The film sees Sam Mendes (Skyfall) directing Bond veterans Daniel Craig as James Bond, Rory Kinnear as Tanner, Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, »

"Spectre" To Explore Bond Creation Myth

14 August 2015 6:11 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With director Sam Mendes' second and actor Daniel Craig's fourth outing with James Bond set to hit cinemas this Fall, a new quote about "Spectre" has emerged in a new interview with Mendes for EW.

Mendes was asked about how his previous Bond film "Skyfall" connects to the new one, and he indicated that his aim with the new one was to tell a kind of retroactive origin story:

"Bond has been rebooted at the end of ["Skyfall"]. This is only the beginning of the story. The Bond creation myth never happened. I felt there was an opportunity there: What made him? And who were the people who affected him along the way? You're sort of telling the story backwards of how Bond became Bond. A lot of the film is a celebration of what it is to be Bond, but it's not retro. Hopefully it's not just classic Bond but a classic thriller. »

Spectre Will Be James Bond's Origin Story

14 August 2015 3:19 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With the release of Casino Royale, and Daniel Craig stepping into his shoes, we were all under the impression that James Bond was taken back to the beginning and we saw how he became the suave super spy we all know and love, albeit a hell of a lot darker. But then Skyfall came along and turned the clock back somewhat, skewing more old school than Craig’s first two turns as Bond, almost as if the Bond reboot was getting rebooted itself. Now, speaking to Entertainment Weekly, director Sam Mendes confirmed our suspicions, saying “Bond has been rebooted at the end of the movie. This is only the beginning of the story.” So, this puts Spectre in the position of being an origin story of sorts, which may have a few people scratching their heads. Let Mendes explain it to you: “ The Bond creation myth never happened. I felt »

'Spectre' Will Show Origin Story of 'How Bond Became Bond'

14 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

James Bond is a man of action -- shake, don't stir! -- and he's usually too focused on moving forward to look back. But director Sam Mendes told Entertainment Weekly that "Spectre" is a culmination of the three previous Daniel Craig Bond movies while developing 007's mostly unexplored backstory. As Mendes put it:

The Bond creation myth never happened. I felt there was an opportunity there: What made him? And who were the people who affected him along the way? You're sort of telling the story backwards of how Bond became Bond."

Mendes told EW that Bond was "rebooted" at the end of "Skyfall" but that was just the beginning of the story, which is picked up by "Spectre."

Daniel Craig added to EW:

A lot of the film is a celebration of what it is to be Bond. But it's not retro. Hopefully it's not just classic Bond but a classic thriller. »

The Big James Bond Questions That Spectre Will Try To Answer

14 August 2015 7:41 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

You know his name, you've memorized his number, and you know how he takes his martinis; but do you really know the man who is Bond, James Bond? It's hard to say, as he really wasn't given much opportunity to develop as a character in the first iteration of the decades spanning franchise. It's something that Sam Mendes intends to explore very thoroughly in Spectre, and he plans to answer some long standing questions about how James became Bond. Warning: We will get in to spoilers for the Daniel Craig era of Bond. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly during a recent interview, Mendes elaborated on how he changed the franchise with his record-breaking film Skyfall by noting that by the end of the film, the Bond universe was officially and totally rebooted. With the death of Dame Judi Dench's M, the final vestiges of Bond 1.0 were »

New character posters from Pan feature Hugh Jackman, Rooney Mara, Garrett Hedlund and Levi Miller

13 August 2015 2:56 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The four main stars of the upcoming Peter Pan origin story Pan are front and center on new character posters for the film. The posters (via Fandango) show Levi Miller as Peter Pan, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, Garrett Hedlund as Hook and Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard. See them all below…

Pan would already be in theaters if it had stuck to its original July release date, but Warner Bros. decided to push back the film to later in the year to escape a cluttered summer movie season.

Peter (Levi Miller) is a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life those qualities do not exactly fly. Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland. There, he finds amazing adventures »
