Terry Gilliam has been to hell and back multiple times on his journey to make his passion project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. The last we heard, Gilliam had lost the rights to the film and we had no idea if it would ever get released, especially after Amazon dropped it.

James Bond Is a Severe Alcoholic According to New Study

James Bond, as it turns out, is probably a severe alcoholic. This revelation (which is probably a revelation to precisely nobody who has seen more than one of these movies) comes as the result of a new study conducted by public health researchers at the University of Otago in New Zealand. Their findings, though perhaps not surprising to those familiar with the franchise, are compelling nonetheless and help to explain some of the iconic British spy's destructive behavior. Per the study...

"There is strong and consistent evidence that James Bond has a chronic alcohol consumption problem at the 'severe' end of the spectrum."

The study found that James Bond at least sipped a drink, if not consumed the whole thing, 109 times throughout the 24 movies in the official franchise. This would not include a movie like Never Say Never Again, which was made by a rival studio, for example, and isn't

Yes, James Bond is an alcoholic - but which other film and TV characters should cut back on booze?

An academic report shows 007 is frequently over the limit in life-threatening situations. But, from Homer Simpson to Tyrion Lannister, he is far from alone

Today’s “Well Duh” award goes to New Zealand’s University of Otago, which just published a real-life academic study in the Medical Journal of Australia pointing out that James Bond is an alcoholic. During one flight in Quantum of Solace, the study states, Bond consumed 24 units of alcohol; enough to kill a man. But this isn’t news. Anyone can see that 007 is a drunk. Why not focus on these other, lesser celebrated, screen alcoholics instead.

Rami Malek Eyed for Bond 25 Villain, But ‘Mr. Robot’ Could Get in the Way

Rami Malek Eyed for Bond 25 Villain, But ‘Mr. Robot’ Could Get in the Way
Rami Malek is currently in the middle of the Oscar race with his acclaimed performance in “Bohemian Rhasody,” and he might be spinning that breakthrough movie role into a spot in one of film’s most enduring franchises. According to a report from Variety, sources close to the production of Bond 25 say producers are eyeing Malek for the primary villain role.

Before Malek fans start celebrating, the casting is in no way a sure thing since the actor starts production on the final season of USA Network’s “Mr. Robot” in March. Malek won an Emmy for the television role and will close out the series, with production scheduled to last until July. The “Mr. Robot” filming would stand in Malek’s way of joining the 007 franchise. As Variety notes, even if Eon Productions officially offered Malek the role he might not be able to accept.

James Bond 25 Director Reveals Plans for Daniel Craig's Final 007 Movie

We have some indication as to what director Cary Fukunaga has planned for his version of James Bond 25. The True Detective and Beasts of No Nation filmmaker was brought on board the somewhat troubled project after Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) departed several months before shooting was set to begin. Fukunaga was then hired by producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson to helm what will be Daniel Craig's last go-around as 007.

During a recent interview, Cary Fukunaga disclosed what he could about James Bond 25. He initially boarded the project in September and has been re-developing the story alongside veteran franchise screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. Fukunaga, first of all, explained that he intends to continue the story that started back with Daniel Craig's first Bond movie, Casino Royale, as opposed to making this feel like more of a standalone. Here's what he had to say about it.

Frightfest Halloween 2018: ‘Mara’ Review: Dir. Clive Tonge (2018)

Mara Review: Olga Kurylenko makes her horror debut as she battles a demon who uses sleep paralysis to trap victims.

Mara Review. Image courtesy of Clout Communications.

Olga Kurylenko burst onto the acting scene as Camille in Daniel Craig’s second stint as Bond, Quantum of Solace. Since then, she has undertaken a multitude of roles in many genres, though it has taken her until now to venture into the horror genre. Mara will almost certainly not have been the first horror project sent to her, but it is the first one to bag her. Her interest was clearly peaked by the subject matter: sleep paralysis. Sleep paralysis is a very real condition, one that affects around forty percent of the population at some point or another. It occurs when the person finds themselves in that strange state between sleep and waking. Essentially, it’s like a waking dream, but
