Rihanna linked to James Bond 24?

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Before you get too excited, this is being reported by UK newspaper The Sunday Mirror and only has quotes from an “unnamed source”, but there are some who are claiming that pop singer Rihanna is being linked to the upcoming 24th Bond movie.

Rihanna’s previous acting experience includes the much-maligned Battleship. If the rumours are true, it would be likely that Rihanna would be taking on the legendary “Bong Girl” role.

Rihanna is a big fan of the Bond films and has always loved the idea of appearing in one”, the unnamed source who might not exist said. “She didn’t even need to think about it, she knows she wants to do it. She’s really excited.”

The yet-to-titled Bond 24 will start shooting in December and reunites Skyfall director Sam Mendes with Daniel Craig, who is making his fourth appearance as 007, while the cast also includes the returning Ralph Fiennes, »

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.

Far Cry 4: 20 Things We’re Aching To Try Out

27 September 2014 5:56 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Ubisoft

Ubisoft is going all-in this November.

On the 11th alone we’re getting Assassin’s Creed Rogue and Unity both on last and current-gen respectively, and a massively ambitious open-usa racing game in The Crew. Even Wii U owners will get a way-too-late port of Watch Dogs at the end of that month, but that’s not all. No, ladies and gentlemen, we’ll have plenty more to be grateful for on Thanksgiving than family, pie, hacking, road trips and Parisian architecture.

Far Cry 4 is coming November 18th. Trading their tried and true tropical tropes for lush, mountainous farmland and frigid Himalayan peaks, Ubisoft is aiming to elevate every aspect of the signature gameplay with more varied environmental design and greater vertical gameplay dynamics. They’ll have to, if they hope to give us something bigger and badder than Far Cry 3.

Our introduction to The Rook Islands was unforgettable, »

9 mind-blowing movie fan theories on Joker, James Bond and more

23 September 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The best movies leave you thinking about them long after the end credits roll. Some films marinate in the mind more than others, spawning fanciful theories and intriguing 'what ifs' from their dedicated fans.

Is James Bond really just one man? Do the Pixar films exist in a shared universe? And just how did Heath Ledger's Joker get those scars? We look at 9 mind-blowing movie fan theories below...

Heath Ledger's Joker is a war veteran

The Joker appears in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight seemingly out of the blue, an agent of destruction hell-bent on reeking havoc across Gotham. Unlike Jack Nicholson's Jack Napier, we never get to see a backstory for Heath Ledger's incarnation play out.

The Joker himself offers up two contrasting "wanna know how I got these scars?" stories so we can never truly trust the Clown Prince of Crime's explanation. One »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt could be Edward Snowden for Oliver Stone

22 September 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is on a biopic kick. With Robert Zemeckis' 'The Walk,' a dramatization of French tightrope walker Philippe Petit's stroll across the Twin Towers, in the can, the actor is eying up a hot-button true story that will inevitably thrust him into future awards talk. Deadline reports that Gordon-Levitt is currently circling Oliver Stone's untitled Edward Snowden drama, announced by the 'JFK' director this past June. Prepping for a December shoot in Munich, Germany, Stone's film will tell Snowden's whistleblower saga by culling material from two books: "Time Of The Octopus," by Anatoly Kucherena, and "The Snowden Files: The Inside Story Of The World’s Most Wanted Man," by Guardian journalist Luke Harding. The screen story will evidently follow the the C.I.A. document leaker as he awaits Russian asylum amidst a media frenzy. Snowden's unprecedented exposure of the Nsa's »

Goldfinger 50 years on: How the 1964 classic shaped the 007 films

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

The James Bond series - based on Ian Fleming's spy novels - is one of cinema's biggest ever film franchises, thrilling fans now for over half a century.

1962's Dr No and the following year's From Russia with Love lay the groundwork, but it was with 1964's Goldfinger that the 007 movies became a true global phenomenon.

A 50th anniversary Blu-ray re-issue of the Sean Connery classic is available to buy from today (Monday, September 22). To mark the occasion, Digital Spy explores how Goldfinger shaped Bond as we know and love him.

1. The Extravagant Pre-Titles Sequence

The previous film, From Russia with Love, was in fact the first Bond to feature a pre-titles sequence. But that scene, which saw Robert Shaw's Red Grant stalk and kill a 007 impersonator, was short and simple - and didn't even feature the real Bond.

Goldfinger was the first film to take full advantage »

Ben Whishaw to star in BBC Two’s London Spy

19 September 2014 12:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Skyfall’s Q Ben Whishaw will show off his own secret agent skills in London Spy…

Ben Whishaw is probably best known nowadays as the man who sat in the National Gallery with James Bond and disappointed him with a ‘hardly Christmas’ offering of a gun and a radio.

He has tackled lots of other interesting roles though, including several central parts in Cloud Atlas and a recurring role in BBC drama The Hour. He has also just finished a run with Judi Dench on the West End and has recently replaced Colin Firth as the voice of Paddington Bear.

Now, the BBC want him back, and have offered him a chance to use a few guns and radios of his own in their new five-part BBC Two drama London Spy.

Whishaw will play the eponymous London spy, real-name Danny, described as "a gregarious, hedonistic romantic who gets drawn into »
