It's Official! Daniel Craig and Danny Boyle, Together Again for 'Bond 25'

Update 2: It's official! Daniel Craig will reprise his role as a British secret agent under the direction of Danny Boyle in the 25th James Bond film, per Eon Productions. Production is scheduled to begin on December 3, 2018, with the film still set to release in the U.S. on November 8, 2019. Both Craig and Boyle have previously confirmed their involvement with the film, so what's really new is the production start date and the announcement that Universal Pictures will handle international distribution. (MGM and Annapurna Pictures will distribute in the U.S.) John Hodge's screenplay obviously turned out well. Now the speculation can turn to what sort of adventure we'll be seeing next year. In Spectre, Bond became enmeshed in a conspiracy of competing...

James Bond 25 Officially Announced, Release Date Confirmed

With the picture’s star and director both firmly in place, temporarily calming years of will-they-won’t-they speculation and dream-team fantasizing, we now also have some official release dates for the next James Bond movie. The world famous spy’s 25th film will first be hitting UK cinemas on October 25th, 2019, followed two weeks later by a Us release on November 8th.

The first 007 flick since 2015’s Spectre, Bond 25 will see the return of Daniel Craig for his fifth outing in the role, though there was certainly a time when we didn’t think we’d see the day. Back in 2015, the actor infamously joked that he’d rather “slash [his] wrists” than play the character again. Craig changed his tune the following year, however, taking back his previous statements and saying at the The New Yorker Festival that he’s “got the best job in the world” and that

Danny Boyle Confirmed To Direct James Bond 25 and Release Date Announced

Danny Boyle is officially set to direct the upcoming James Bond 25 film from an original screenplay being written by John Hodge. These two guys have worked together over the years on films such as The Beach and the Trainspotting films. For the most part, I like the films that Danny Boyle has made and I'm actually looking forward to seeing what he ends up doing with the James Bond franchise.

Thanks to Variety, we now know when Bond 25 will be released. MGM will release the film in the United States on November 8th, 2019. Universal Pictures recently won the international distribution rights, and they will release the film in the U.K. on October 25th.

Like many of you, I'm a big fan of the James Bond franchise and I really hope that this next film ends up being a great one. With Boyle at the helm, I'm sure he'll

Danny Boyle finally confirmed to take the helm on Bond 25

After months of speculation, the news has finally been confirmed that Trainspotting and Sunshine man Danny Boyle will direct Bond 25, the next film in the James Bond series.

Boyle’s appointment was only guaranteed if the screenplay he submitted to series producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson impressed the duo. It now seems the pair are more than happy with the result. Boyle had co-written the draft alongside his T2 Trainspotting scribe, John Hodge, who will join him on the Bond team.

Also in the news – John Malkovich will play Poirot alongside Rupert Grint for the BBC’s Agatha Christie adaptation The ABC Murders

Both Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli described Boyle as “exceptionally talented“, they went on to say they were “delighted” to have him on board.

Film Review: ‘Ibiza’

In F-rated Netflix comedy “Ibiza,” best friends Harper (Gillian Jacobs), Nikki (Vanessa Bayer) and Leah (Phoebe Robinson) have ditched Manhattan for a wild weekend in Spain where they’ll be welcomed with the 10 words every girl wants to hear: “Please serve yourself with food, drinks, and eye-opening sexual experiences.” That greeting is courtesy of wealthy mansion-owner Hernando (Jordi Mollà), one of a soccer-team’s worth of suitors vying to take the Americans to bed. Men come and go with a breezy freedom, not the manifest destiny of ordinary romantic comedies. Except for Harper’s laser-focus on a Scottish DJ named Leo who inspires her to re-route their vacation from Barcelona to eponymous party island, where she hopes to make stoned eyes at him across a nightclub as the Edm beat pumps like her heart.

“Some people land on the moon, others cure diseases, you smash this DJ,” cheers Robinson. The

Is Mr. Sinister the X-Force Movie Villain?

Is Mr. Sinister going to be the big villain in the X-Force movie? At the moment, there is no official indication that's going to be the case, but there is a reasonable amount of circumstantial evidence that may lead us to that conclusion. If not in X-Force, it seems like the recent X-Men movies have been signaling that the beloved villain will be making his way to that universe sooner rather than later.

Warning: This article contains spoilers for Deadpool 2. The trail of breadcrumbs we have to follow in order to get to Mr. Sinister, aka Nathaniel Essex, starts with X-Men: Apocalypse. To be a little more specific, the post-credits scene from that movie. Following Wolverine's rampage at the secret facility he is busted out of, an awful lot of blood is left behind in his wake. During the post-credits scene, strange men are seen collecting this blood who
