The Movie “Thunderball” Tops All Bond Movies with Over $1 Billion in Today’s Dollars

James Bond has come a long way since the beginning, and believe it or not, Thunderball is the top movie of the franchise when you adjust its earnings to today’s dollars. In fact Thunderball tops out at just over $1 billion dollars in today’s economy. When you think about the fact that this film was released in 1965 you can easily see how the price of a movie ticket wasn’t even half of what it is now. On average it cost just over a dollar to see a movie over forty years ago, which means that the cost of a

My Day Hanging Out With James Bond: Visiting the Set of 'GoldenEye' (Exclusive)

James Bond wielded the knife with obvious skill. He approached, blade barely glinting in the light, and pounced, the knife coming down to join the awaiting fork. "I usually eat fruit," he said simply, "but today I'm in the mood for a good English breakfast." And with that, he began his meal. Okay, so it's not stopping arch-nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld from triggering World War III, or preventing Auric Goldfinger from turning the gold in Fort Knox radioactive, but it was my experience with agent 007 back in 1994. At the time, I was Senior Editor at Cinescape and somehow we ended up with the rights to do the magazine on the making of the 17th James Bond movie — and the first one to star Pierce BrosnanGoldenEye. Even more incredibly, I was the guy chosen to fly to England to spend a few days on the set at Leavesden Studios, later

Live Like a Cop, Die Like a Man

This 1976 police thriller was gore-happy director Ruggero Deodato’s only foray into the genre but he leaves his fingerprints all over this brutal tale of a special squad of undercover cops given free reign in their strong armed tactics. It was familiar territory for both leading man Marc Porel (The Sicilian Clan) and co-star Adolfo Celi, the eye-patch wearing supervillain of 1965’s Thunderball.

London Film Convention: Cinema Retro's Mark Mawston Reports

"Thunderball" co-stars Martine Beswick and Luciana Paluzzi.

Hammer and "Live and Let Die" actress Madeleine Smith.

By Mark Mawston

The London Film Convention, organized by Thomas Bowington was quite literally a Who’s Who of heroes and villains from the small and silver screen. The actual Who came in the shape of a Dr. himself in the guise of Sylvester McCoy, along with Who assistants Katy Manning who played Jo and Bernard Cribbins from both the Amicus film version and the TV version. There was also a rare appearance from Garial Woolf. The other key cult British film genres-the Carry On films, James Bond and Hammer horror- were all represented too, with many of the star guests appearing in all three: from the Carry On Films we had Fenella Fielding, Anita Harris and Amanda Barrie, from Hammer and Bond we had Maddie Smith, Valerie Leon, Martine Beswick, Eunice Gayson, John Wyman,

Top Ten Movie Franchises Based on Books

  • Cinelinx
For as long as there have been movies, there have been movies based on books. This is a look at the best movie franchises that are either based on a book or several books.

It’s one thing to have a movie that is based on a book. It happens all the time. It’s more rare to have an entire franchise of films based on a book or set of books. Over the last two decades, it seems like we have been seeing more and more franchises emerge that are based on books. This seems to be happening for a few reasons. First, Hollywood is more than ever looking for established properties on which to base films. Book, have been and always will be one of the best established properties for a movie to be based upon. Second, if the books have a big following, chances are that the

'I've not retired!' Earl Cameron, Britain's first black film star, on Bond, racism – and turning 100

From Thunderball to Inception, from punchy thrillers to mixed-race romances, Earl Cameron blazed a trail through British acting – with just one lung. He relives his meatiest roles and the prejudice he rose above

‘Not long till your birthday!” the receptionist shouts as Earl Cameron materialises in the lobby of the Holiday Inn near his home in Warwickshire. He’s come with his wife, Barbara, to check on the party arrangements. They’ve booked the conference suite, which he now fears is too small, given all the guests who are coming. He has six children scattered around the world, more grandkids than he can keep track of, plus scores of old friends.

It’s going to be a big bash, which is only fitting. Cameron was arguably Britain’s first black movie star – and these are the preparations for his 100th birthday, which takes place this week.

Roger Moore’s Son Geoffrey Filming Satirical Documentary ‘And the Winner Isn’t’ (Exclusive)

Roger Moore’s Son Geoffrey Filming Satirical Documentary ‘And the Winner Isn’t’ (Exclusive)
Roger Moore’s son, Geoffrey, and granddaughter, Ambra, are filming a satirical documentary “And the Winner Isn't,” exploring what it takes to win an Oscar.

The documentary is dedicated to Roger Moore, which died in May. The film will serve as a promotional vehicle for the song “U N I,” composed and produced by Geoffrey for Unicef to raise funds for the charity. Roger Moore was a Goodwill Ambassador for Unicef for nearly 30 years.

“I promised him before he died that we would complete this movie,” Moore told Variety.

The song highlights the unnecessary suffering of children around the world and emphasizes how charitable actions can stop it from happening.

“My father had a great sense of humor so the documentary is very sardonic,” Moore noted. “We both believed that humor is a great way to make a serious point. He was very dedicated to Unicef and the notion of using his good fortune for good

How ‘Planet of the Apes’ Started Hollywood’s Franchise Obsession

How ‘Planet of the Apes’ Started Hollywood’s Franchise Obsession
If Matt Reeves’ much-anticipated “War on the Planet of the Apes” (20th Century Fox) opens Friday to an expected $70 million or more, that would put it ahead (in domestic returns at least) of such recent high altitude-franchise stumbles as “Alien: Covenant,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” and “Transformers.”

Several factors contribute to the elevated respect for the series, going back almost half a century to when the first film, never intended as anything other than a standalone, became a surprise success in 1968.

Let’s track some curious highlights on the unusual trajectory that brings us to the ninth entry in the longest running English-language film series other than James Bond:

The Genesis Was a Stand-Alone Novel

Pierre Boule was well-known for the World War II novel “The Bridge on the River Kwai” which became a David Lean Best Picture winner and massive worldwide hit in the late 1950s.

Molly Peters, Bond Girl in ‘Thunderball,’ Reportedly Dies at 75
Bond girl Molly Peters, whose risque scenes in “Thunderball” caused much comment at the time, has died, according to the official James Bond Twitter account.

Peters, 75, played Pat, a nurse tending to Sean Connery’s Bond in 1965’s “Thunderball.” She was the first Bond girl to take her clothes off onscreen in scenes that were considered racy and controversial. Several were ultimately cut from the film.

The Bond Twitter feed said: “We are sad to hear that Molly Peters has passed away at the age of 75. Our thoughts are with her family.”

Peters’ death comes barely a week after that of Roger Moore, who played the part of the suave 007 more times than any other actor.

Peters, who was also a model, had a fleeting acting career, spanning just a handful of films and series in the mid-1960s. “Thunderball” was her most notable big screen role.
