'Spectre' Producers on Blofeld, Idris Elba as 007, and Who's Singing the Theme Song

10 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Over the weekend, we were in Mexico City on the set of the next James Bond outing "Spectre." This film marks the fourth time that Daniel Craig has inhabited the role of 007 and the second collaboration between Craig and his "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes. During the last phase of our trip, we were offered a special treat: a roundtable sit down with the longtime shepherds of the James Bond franchise: producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. Broccoli is, of course, the daughter of 007 producer Albert "Cubby" Broccoli and is Wilson's step brother (Wilson wrote several of the 007 movies, including "The Living Daylights," which also partially took place in Mexico).

The trailer for "Spectre" having premiered just hours before, we had a lot of questions for the producing team (and surprisingly, they only refused to answer some). In our conversation, they teased the connection between "Skyfall" and "Spectre" (and to »

Spectre Teaser Trailer Pushes Continuation Of Bond Psychology

15 hours ago | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Spectre is likely to be as divisive as Skyfall when it comes to long-time James Bond fans, and, speaking as one, I find it difficult to look forward to the release. I’m not sure the new teaser trailer is helping me.

Frankly, after Sam Mendes announced he wasn’t going to do another Bond film, a lot of people breathed a sigh of relief. If you want to make a film that isn’t a Bond film, go ahead, but don’t make more “let’s make Bond into not-Bond” films.

On the other hand, a lot of people obviously loved Skyfall, and greatly appreciated the new direction that doesn’t rely on gadgets, hot women with goofy names, borderline silly henchmen, and/or anything else people immediately connect with the idea of a Bond film. Or, whatever.

At any rate, the film has a new teaser trailer, and »

Spectre: 5 Things The New James Bond Trailer Got Wrong

19 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

MGM/Columbia Pictures

Get your acronyms, jumpsuits and Illuminati parallels at the ready – Spectre’s coming.

After the still-confusing Quantum Of Solace and hitherto-unknown Skyfall, the name of the twenty-fourth Bond movie promises something concrete. Named after the criminal syndicate from the Sean Connery-era movies (and Ian Fleming’s original novels), the title’s created even more speculation for what was already one of the most anticipated, but also most risky, movies of the year.

It’s a particularly ballsy move on Sam Mendes’ part to return to the 007 franchise after Skyfall. Bond 23 was such an assured meditation on the series’ relevance, as well as a great entry in the canon by itself, that it already sits alongside Goldfinger as one of 007’s best. Just how do you top that?

Well, based on the first trailer for Spectre, it looks like the Oscar-winner has found the answer for that question. »

Spectre Interview: Producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson

29 March 2015 10:47 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Over the past few days, I got to visit the Mexico City set of the next James Bond movie, Spectre. Directed by Sam Mendes (Skyfall) and starring Daniel Craig as Bond, everything I saw and learned during my set visit makes me extremely confident that the upcoming sequel will be something special. For more on the film, here’s a description of the awesome-sounding opening chase sequence that will be between twelve and fifteen minutes of screen time. The day after my set visit, I got to participate in group interview with Spectre producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. While they were tight lipped about revealing the secrets of Spectre, we got updates on the theme song, how they decided what would be in the teaser trailer, putting together the cast, the rumors that Spectre could have been a two-part movie, if James Bond could exist in a shared universe, »

Three more stills from Spectre featuring Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz and Monica Bellucci

29 March 2015 1:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Eon Productions, MGM and Sony Pictures have certainly kicked the promotion for Spectre off with a bang this week; so far we’ve seen the first trailer and a batch of images showing 007 in action in Mexico City, and now the official site has dropped another three stills, which we have for you here…

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.

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, Ralph Fiennes as M and Jesper Christensen as Mr. »

"Spectre" Opening Scene Details, Pics

29 March 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

While the teaser trailer for the next James Bond film "Spectre" surprisingly went further than expected in some of the film's big reveals, one thing that was notably absent was action.

Much like the very first "Batman Begins" trailer, the filmmakers focused specifically on character drama for the teaser. Some establishing shots gave the footage grandeur, but even so it was only people sitting and talking in rooms.

One of the reasons for that is the film is still in the midst of shooting with some big action set pieces still to be done. The film's production crew were recently on location in Mexico City shooting one of the key action set pieces of the film - the pre-credits sequence.

Minor Spoilers Ahead

Various outlets were on hand in the city for one day of the nearly ten day shoot in which 1,500 extras participated in a recreation of the Mexican »

11 Major Things We Learned From The Set Of Spectre, The New James Bond Movie

29 March 2015 9:42 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The pressure is high. Sam Mendes is on his fourth day of shooting Spectre in Mexico City when press arrived on the set, and rain was derailing the day. The crew already shot earlier sequences involving Daniel Craig.s 007, Stephanie Sigman.s Estrella, a fierce explosion and an on-foot chase sequence. Mendes still has a lot to do before he jets off to film in London, and the production schedule leading up to the film.s November 6 release is just as hectic. But the filmmaker and his producers are determined to raise the bar after Skyfall.  When Mendes revealed the next James Bond movie would be titled after the franchise.s most notorious supervillain syndicate, expectations were already high. How will Spectre, which was involved in multiple Bond films of the past, be modernized? Will we see the return of classic characters? Will the infamous Blofeld pop up? Will it »

Queen's Brian May: 'Sacha Baron Cohen biopic announcement was a joke'

29 March 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Brian May has said that the recent announcement surrounding Sacha Baron Cohen's return to the upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic was "a small joke".

The Queen member says that Jim Beach's announcement at the Artist and Manager Awards 2015 on March 26 shouldn't be taken seriously.

On his website, May wrote: "[Beach] said that, in response to enquiries about the progress on the Freddie feature film, that Sacha Baron Cohen had been re-engaged to write, produce, and direct the film, as well as starring in all four major roles!

"I'm afraid some folks might have taken it seriously!"

Baron Cohen, who was originally attached to star as Mercury in the biopic, pulled out of the project in 2013 over creative differences with the Queen bandmates.

Speaking about Baron Cohen's exit from the biopic in 2013, drummer Roger Taylor said that the band didn't want the movie to "be a joke".

More Action For Miss Moneypenny? Spectre Producers Open Up

28 March 2015 9:12 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When last we saw Naomie Harris as the new Moneypenny in Skyfall, she was taking a leave from the field and resigning to be the secretary to the new M (Ralph Fiennes). If you thought that was it for the character.s adrenaline junkie lifestyle as we head into Spectre territory, don.t count her out.  Along with a group of press, we spoke with James Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson while covering the Mexico City set of Spectre. According to them, Miss Moneypenny is still very much involved in the plot of the new movie. Said Broccoli, You can.t keep this one behind a desk. This Moneypenny is very active. She is key to the story and key to helping Bond on his mission. She.s not deskbound.  There.s a reason the Moneypenny reveal was made at the end of Skyfall. If you recall »

What did we learn from the Spectre teaser trailer?

28 March 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The first teaser trailer for James Bond 24 has been released, but what did it tell us about the upcoming movie, Spectre?

After letting the sky fall when it crum-balled to the tune of a billion dollars at the global box office, Spectre may be the most anticipated James Bond movie since the last one. Daniel Craig's fourth feature as 007 won't arrive in UK cinemas until October, but the response to the teaser trailer released over the weekend has been very positive.

Four is hardly a magic number for Bond actors. Sean Connery's fourth outing was the less-than-stellar Thunderball, Roger Moore's was the all-too-interstellar Moonraker and Pierce Brosnan closed out his four-movie tenure with the infamously poor Die Another Day.

That makes Craig the fourth actor to rack up four turns as Bond, and if you're superstitious about this sort of thing, maybe that's why this looks to be the combo breaker. »

James Bond Spectre Trailer Pries into 007’s Past: Watch Now

28 March 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The first James Bond Spectre trailer made landfall on the Internet Friday to deliver a cryptic message about where 007's (Daniel Craig) next mission will take him, both emotionally and physically.

Spectre makes a concerted effort to build upon Skyfall by presenting James Bond with previously unknown documents found in the rubble of the former Skyfall manor that his parents once owned. This evidence, that may shed light onto what happened to Bond's real parents, takes him on an adventure into the Alps and into the crosshairs of a mysterious man named Oberhauser, played by the deliciously great villainous character actor Christolph Waltz.

As Bond battles in the snow and Mexico City, he eventually comes face-to-face with Oberhauser and he get our first shadowy glimpse at the film's villain, who many believe will turn out to be the classic Bond villain Blofeld. If he isn't Blofeld then why call the film Spectre, »

Spectre trailer embraces Bond movies past: Who's lurking in the shadows?

28 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It took 44 years and 20 big screen outings before the Bond films even began to acknowledge its protagonist's origins, but if anything's going to define Daniel Craig's tenure as 007 it's the echoes from the character's past.

In the years between Roger Moore's departure and Timothy Dalton's arrival with The Living Daylights, screenwriters Richard Maibaum and Michael G Wilson explored the idea of taking Bond back to his roots with the Royal Navy and his induction into MI6.

Producer Cubby Broccoli, the man who masterminded Bond's cinematic success, dismissed this notion, arguing that audiences loved Ian Fleming's hero because he was bullet proof and fully formed.

How times change.

Since Daniel Craig's dramatic entrance in Casino Royale, Bond has been a vulnerable tortured soul, carrying this through in Quantum of Solace and Skyfall. The latter turned back the clock as 007 returned to his family home in Scotland, giving »

The Teaser For the Latest James Bond Movie Will Give You Goosebumps

28 March 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Cue up the Bond theme, because the Spectre teaser trailer is here! Daniel Craig is back as our beloved blond James Bond in the 24th Bond movie, and the first brief look has us convinced that we might need to rewatch Skyfall before seeing this new installment. The teaser leans heavily on what happened in the previous movie, but we do get a lot of Craig looking sexy (as is a habit of his) and a hint of the villain's voice (that's Christoph Waltz if you can't make it out). The movie comes out Nov. 6, and I'm sure we'll get more to go on before then. Until then, enjoy this first look. »

6 Things We Learned About 'Spectre' From the New Teaser

27 March 2015 5:47 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It's fun trying to piece together the clues from the new "Spectre" teaser trailer, in which Daniel Craig's James Bond confronts more demons from the past in his fourth outing that will impact his future course. Thus, it's a continuation of "Skyfall" and not everything from his childhood has been buried. There's no such thing as a regular mission so far in the Craig era, and 007 continues grappling with trust and betrayal in what looks to be a very baroque-looking crucible. 1. Personal effects recovered from Skyfall reveal a secret past that Bond has he kept hidden because he "couldn't trust anyone," according to Moneypenny (Naomi Harris): In Bond's apartment (a first since "Live and Let Die") he looks at a photograph of a boy beside a man with his arm around him holding a hiking pole. There's a third person but the top of the page has been burnt. »
