    Sweet Trailer…’No Time to Die’

    Bond is back! MGM has released the first full trailer for the newest 007 film and it’s got us excited. And we’ve put up six character posters which look striking. No more words…just get to the good stuff. Enjoy! In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology. Directed by Cary Fukunaga,this new…

    Ohhh, Look…Infographic: Famous British Cars from Film and Telly

    The most endearing component in some classic films and TV shows (be they good, bad or terribly cheesy) can often times be the most unsung – the car. In fact, sometimes it’s that 4-wheeled character that is most talked about after the credits have rolled. With time, luck and a hefty fan-base, it can even become more iconic than the film/show in which it exists. Sure we all know the usual suspects – Michael Knight’s talking car, the Ghostbusters’ Ecto-1, Doc Brown’s time-travelling DeLorean, and the Corvette-inspired Batmobile that turned heads (well not Batman’s) in Tim Burton’s 1989 mega-hit – so this post will instead take a look at those…

    Sam Mendes Confirmed to Direct 24th James Bond Film

    After much deliberation about whether or not Sam Mendes would indeed return to direct the next Bond film, today the film’s producers and executives announced that not only will Daniel Craig be returning as the legendary British secret agent in the 24th James Bond film, Mendes will also return to direct the screenplay written by John Logan. Great news for James Bond Fans! Mendes recently stated his theatre commitments to direct King Lear and Charlie and the Chocolate Factor would leave him unable to direct the film, but after the success of Skyfall producers were willing to work around Mendes’ schedule. Smart move. The film, titled simply, Bond 24, is set for theatrical release in the UK…

    Mendes Too Busy For Bond

    A few weeks back, we published a piece detailing the rumors of Sam Mendes’ potential return to the James Bond franchise with its next installment (for now referred to simply as “Bond 24“). While he didn’t rule out the possibility of directing the picture, he offered enough caveats to maintain uncertainty. As of today, he’s given a solid answer, but it’s not the one we wanted to hear: Mendes will not be directing the next Bond movie. At least the news doesn’t come as a huge surprise. Speaking to Empire, he revealed that the decision stems from his prior theater commitments; he’s directing both King Lear and Charlie and the…

    Sam Mendes Could Be Bonded To The Next 007 Movie

    Somebody at either Eon Productions or MGM must have some potent persuasive talents: Sam Mendes, despite expressing  sentiment to the contrary, may end up at the helm of the next James Bond picture after all. The rumor comes right from an article in The Daily Mail, which suggests that Mendes has been “75%” convinced to take the wheel for Bond 24, and that pre-production could start by the end of this year or the start of 2014. The deciding factors? Whether the project will fit into Mendes’ busy theater schedule (he’s directing King Lear at the National Theatre next January, and he’s assembling a musical version of Charlie and the Chocolate…

    007 Writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade Confirm Departure From Bond Franchise

    As Skyfall becomes the most successful Bond film in its 23 film history (read our glowing review here), British screenwriting duo Neal Purvis and Robert Wade took part in a master class at the fourth Doha Tribeca Film Festival (DTFF) to lift the lid on writing for one of the iconic film franchises of all time. The following are some excerpts from the Press release that was issued following the session… “When we were originally asked to come in to meet the Bond people, we weren’t expecting to be walking straight into a meeting with Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson” said Neal Purvis, describing the moment they first started…

    Ohhh, Look…More 007 Visual Candy; 'Skyfall' Intro and Bond Doc

    Gotta love this Internet. The latest James Bond film, Skyfall, opened in US theaters less than a week ago. A massive hit already (deemed by some to be the best Bond yet) but now you can behold the marvelous opening title sequence without even setting foot in a cineplex! Though to the credit of Sam Mendes and Daniel Kleinman you should totally see this on the BIG screen. To those who know Bond, the films always feature a rather beautiful kaleidoscopic opening credits sequence. A combination of guns, girls, and a mix of foreshadowed plot and film footage, this wondrously dark sequence is perfectly complimented by Adele’s theme song which just…

    Ohhh, Look…The Cars of James Bond Infographic

    For those of you who have already seen Skyfall, you know that Daniel Craig, Sam Mendes and crew knocked the latest Bond outing out of the park. It is a brilliant mix of old and new that succeeds in pleasing die-hard fans (with smile-inducing nods and references) but also entertains a slew of audiences new to the franchise. One such nod and wink is in the form of perhaps the most famous of Bond cars, one almost as iconic as the secret agent himself, the Aston Martin DB5. But while Bond is know for his gadgets and girls, he’s also showcased in and been behind the wheel of some of the world’s most…

    G-S-T Review…Skyfall

    Even after 4 years, Quantum of Solace still leaves a rather bland taste in mouths of Bond fans (though much of the flat reception the film was met with can be chalked up to the writer’s strike). As such, Bond would have a lot of making up to do in his next outing. But thanks to another solid turn from Daniel Craig, a fantastic cast to play opposite, great story, music and all of this under the artistic eye of Sam Mendes, Skyfall is not only one the franchises’ best installments but easily sits among the likes of the most beloved Connery films. Sounds like lofty praise but really it earns and…

    Oh boy, Bond is back and we can honestly say the wait has been far too long!!
