Bond Girl Izabella Scorupco's New $6.4M House Oddly Includes Trespasser
Izabella Scorupco -- the main Bond chick in "GoldenEye" -- got way more than she bargained for when she bought a multi-million dollar crib ... a freakin' trespasser.

It includes picturesque views of downtown L.A.'s skyline, the Hollywood sign, as well as an incredible pool deck.  Oh, and apparently a trespasser.  Sources

Reg Gadney obituary

Artist, television scriptwriter and author of thrillers featuring unheroic heroes

To a host of art students Reg Gadney, who has died aged 77, was an inspirational teacher; to television producers he was a reliable, award-winning scriptwriter; to readers of popular fiction he was a master of the unconventional thriller featuring unheroic heroes; and in later years he became recognised as an innovative portrait painter of the great and good. Then, to a select few who realised the connection, he would introduce himself as “the fifth James Bond, between Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan”.

His script for the Anglia Television film Goldeneye (1989), based on the life of Ian Fleming, got him the plum role as Bond. Gadney had accepted the job, he maintained, only if he could accompany the film crew to the Jamaican locations. While he was there, Charles Dance (playing Fleming) suggested he should take the brief cameo role of James Bond,

Turok And Turok 2: Seeds Of Evil Remastered Review

While it may not have gotten as much play-time as GoldenEye or Perfect Dark, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter was a staple in my house growing up. The Nintendo 64 gem has become a bit of a cult classic over the years, as its solid gameplay and unique world have endeared it to fans. The subsequent entry in the series, 1998’s Turok 2: Seeds of Evil would achieve even higher marks, with the game’s mission structure being particularly praised. Unfortunately, the series would eventually be irreparably damaged due to the disastrous Evolution in 2002, and with only a solid, if slightly disappointing reboot being released since, it doesn’t appear to be returning anytime soon. That didn’t stop publisher Night Dive Studios from deciding to remaster and re-release the first two Turok games, though, which have now both arrived on the Xbox One after previously launching for PC.

If you’re new to the world of Turok,

Alan Cumming To Play A Villain On Doctor Who Season 11

Scottish actor Alan Cumming, known for his various roles in the likes of GoldenEye, Spy Kids, X2 and The Good Wife, among many others, is no stranger to Doctor Who. In fact, he’s been asked to play the face-changing Time Lord on not just one, but two occasions. While he’s said in the past that he would have loved to take the part, there was one big aspect of the job that always put him off; relocating to Cardiff, Wales, where the show is filmed.

Now, however, he’ll finally get a chance to join the iconic sci-fi series, though not in the titular role. Speaking on a recent podcast, the actor revealed that he’s been cast in season 11 as King James I, who he describes as a “nice baddie.” Though Cumming didn’t say much else, he did note that there’s a chance he’ll come back,

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

Five reasons to see The Foreigner

  • Cineplex
Five reasons to see The ForeignerFive reasons to see The ForeignerScott Goodyer1/16/2018 9:30:00 Am

Jackie Chan karate kicks his way back onscreen in The Foreigner! The action movie has Chan playing a humble businessman with a buried past who seeks justice when his daughter is killed in an act of terrorism. Pierce Brosnan also stars, teaming up again with GoldenEye director Martin Campbell.

Here are 5 reasons why you need to check this movie out:

1. The Stunts

Jackie Chan has endured many years of long, hard work and a ton of injuries to establish international success via his early beginnings in Hong Kong's martial arts movie industry. Making his way to North American audiences in 1995 with Rumble in the Bronx, this was the first time we saw an action star do his own stunts as he ran up walls and bounced off cars. It was very impressive and Jackie hasn't slowed down.

Bond 25: Why is James Bond relevant in 2019?

Tim George Jan 15, 2018

With James Bond returning to our screens in 2019, what's the challenge ahead for Daniel Craig's final 007 movie?

After a year and change of silence, we now have a release date for Bond 25 (8th November, 2019, probably a week or two earlier in the UK) and a James Bond (Saint Blue Eyes himself, Daniel Craig). It will be a while before we start to get more details like a director or a cast. But as with all movies, before all those pieces can be in place, there must be a story - which is where the challenge begins.

After the less-than-stellar response to Spectre, the James Bond franchise is back in familiar territory: having its relevance questioned. A cursory look through critical notices and fan consensus picks out the return to formula, the lack of character development and the bungled attempt to jump on the ‘shared universe’ trend.

Watch Jennifer Lawrence in the Red Sparrow trailer

Well, on good side effect of having Russia back in the news so much is that we may get a lot more good old fashioned Russian Spy movies. Even 1995’s James Bond movie Goldeneye struggled to deal with a post-Cold War Russia. But then if Jennifer Lawrence were really on their side, we might consider defecting anyway. Watch the Red Sparrow trailer below: Red Sparrow is based on the first in author Jason Matthews’ trilogy. Fans of Lawrence in X-Men and The Hunger Games will get to see her kick butt again.

Movie Review – The Foreigner (2017)

The Foreigner, 2017.

Directed by Martin Campbell.

Starring Jackie Chan, Pierce Brosnan, Rufus Jones, Charlie Murphy, and Orla Brady.

Synopsis:

The story of humble London businessman Quan (Chan), whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge fuelled vendetta when the only person left for him to love – his teenage daughter – is taken from him in a senseless act of politically motivated terrorism. In his relentless search for the identity of the terrorists, Quan is forced into a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Brosnan), whose own past may hold clues to the identities of the elusive killers.

Jackie Chan’s career in the West has been a mixed bag to put it mildly. Even at the height of his popularity West of China, in Rush Hour and Shanghai Noon etc, he was doing affable (if disposable) entertainment. The trouble was, among his better aforementioned works, he was doing dreadful films like

Skyfall Five Years Later: Is It Still the Best Bond?

Skyfall Five Years Later: Is It Still the Best Bond?
Five years ago, Skyfall made its way into U.S. theaters. It remains the most financially successful James Bond movie of all time and, in the eyes of many, it's the best entry of the Daniel Craig era (though, Casino Royale might have something to say about that). While we wait for Craig to make his last turn as 007 in James Bond 25, let's take a look back at Skyfall and what makes the movie so special in the long, storied history of Bond on the big screen.

Let's rewind the clock a little bit and try and put ourselves in the shoes we were wearing in 2012. The last James Bond movie fans had seen was the much-maligned Quantum of Solace in 2008. Coming off the truly fantastic Casino Royale, which is quite possibly the best debut movie for a Bond actor in the history of the franchise, the movie was,

Gong Li to Star in Martin Campbell’s Action-Thriller ‘Ana’ (Exclusive)

Gong Li to Star in Martin Campbell’s Action-Thriller ‘Ana’ (Exclusive)
Chinese actress Gong Li will star in the Europe-set action-thriller “Ana,” with Martin Campbell on board to direct.

Rush Hour” producer Arthur Sarkissian and China’s Bruno Wu are producing the movie, which Wu is also financing. Sarkissian told Variety that they plan to start production in March or April.

The script is written by Richard Wenk, whose credits include “The Equalizer,” “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back,” and “The Expendables 2.” Sarkissian said “Ana” will be similar in tone to Luc Besson’s 1990 actioner “La Femme Nikita.”

“Ana” re-teams Campbell and Sarkissian following the Jackie Chan actioner “The Foreigner,” which opens Friday in North America with expectations of a $10 million debut weekend. “The Foreigner” is projected to earn $88 million in international markets by the end of the upcoming weekend.

Gong’s credits date back to Zhang Yimou’s directorial debut, “Red Sorghum,” which won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival in 1988. Since then, she’s appeared

The Foreigner – Review

Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan face off in action thriller The Foreigner. Director Martin Campbell (Casino Royale, Goldeneye) helms this suspenseful thriller that has a serious, emotional Chan bent on revenge after his daughter is killed in a politically motivated bombing in London, a man who turns his focused on an Irish-born British official, played by Pierce Brosnan, who may know the names of the bombers.

Although there is a daughter and Jackie Chan’s character does have an unexpected “special skill set,” that is about all this smart, gripping thriller has in common with Liam Neeson’s Taken apart from the genre. This revenge-driven action thriller has some surprising twists and provocative commentary on assumptions based on appearance.

The Foreigner Review: Jackie Chan Like You've Never Seen Him

The Foreigner Review: Jackie Chan Like You've Never Seen Him
The Foreigner delivers exactly what it promises, Jackie Chan as you've never seen him. The titan of martial arts and comedy cinema disappears utterly in this gripping thriller. His turn as a bereaved father obsessed with vengeance will have you glued to your seats. The Foreigner is not a brainless action flick with an invincible protagonist. It has a surprisingly complex plot with multiple key characters. Veteran director Martin Campbell (Casino Royale,Vertical Limit) uses his filmmaking acumen to great effect. He reshapes a well known commodity in Chan, but never forgets the importance of the story.

A terrorist bomb in London targets a bank, but also destroys the dress shop beside it. Ngoc Minh Quan (Jackie Chan) watches in horror as his teenage daughter is killed in the explosion. A rogue cell of the Irish Republican Army calls the press to claim responsibility. This attack is just the beginning.

Review: ‘The Foreigner’ Pits Jackie Chan Against James Bond In a Very Awkward Mash-Up

Review: ‘The Foreigner’ Pits Jackie Chan Against James Bond In a Very Awkward Mash-Up
The Foreigner” is a twisty political thriller about an deputy minister (Pierce Brosnan) who’s plotting to pardon some imprisoned Ira fighters without reigniting the Troubles. “The Foreigner” is also a revenge saga in which Jackie Chan plays a Vietnamese (?) explosives expert who’s obsessively determined to identify and eliminate the bombers who blew up his teenage daughter. Believe it or not, those two narratives don’t really complement one another all that well. It turns out there might be a good reason why no one’s ever watched “In the Name of the Father” and thought to themselves: “You know what that movie was missing? Jackie Chan.”

On paper, it almost makes sense why someone would try to sandwich these very different storylines together — immigrants, so often assumed to be the perpetrators of domestic terrorism, are often the most overlooked of its casualties. And it’s possible this mash-up

The Preview Reel: The Foreigner and Happy Death Day

Welcome to this week’s “Preview Reel” column, where we look at the week’s upcoming wide release movies. Blade Runner 2049 received rave reviews last week, but that did not translate to box-office success as the movie stumbled to a $32.8 million opening against a $155 million budget. The sci-fi flick has a chance to retain the top spot, however, as the competition this week looks relatively weak—there’s the revenge thriller The Foreigner, and the Blumhouse horror flick, Happy Death Day.

The Foreigner

What we are excited about: While it would be easy to say that the thing we are most excited about here is Jackie Chan (and we are excited about that), we are going to go with the film’s director. Martin Campbell is responsible for two of the best James Bond movies of the past twenty-five years in Casino Royale (2006) and GoldenEye (1995). While we will ignore his last movie,
