Bond distribution rights go to Annapurna

Every studio wants a piece of James Bond. The movies are hits no matter what. They bring in money, and that's why landing the distribution rights to the films was a massive deal with almost every studio out there putting bids in. MGM was lo...

Christoph Waltz says he's not coming back for Bond

One of the worst kept secrets in film history was that Christoph Waltz was playing Blofed in Spectre. On the whole I thought they pretty much wasted a fantastic actor and performance for the film so I was excited when it was pretty obvious ...

Officially Official: Daniel Craig returning for Bond 25

There was a bit of a kerfuffle yesterday when Daniel Craig mentioned on a radio interview that nothing was finalized with him being in Bond 25. Turns out that was a lie as the actor had obviously agreed to super duper double officially conf...

Daniel Craig reportedly agrees to play Bond again

After Spectre came out Daniel Craig was not too kind to the chances of him ever playing Bond again. The role is an incredible amount of pressure and the shooting is often stressful so he had some choice words about returning. However, ...

In defense of Roger Moore

Yesterday we heard the sad news that Roger Moore had passed away. If you're like me it hit you pretty hard, because if you're like me Roger Moore's James Bond is something you love. A lot of people are not like me. Most don't outright hate ...

Neal Pervis and Robert Wade return again to script Bond 25

It's with mixed emotions that I write the news that Neal Pervis and Robert Wade are returning to write the screenplay for Bond 25. The duo have been involved with the Bond films since The World Is Not Enough (writers strike aside) and ...

Daniel Craig is reportedly done as Bond... or not

Daniel Craig is leaving the Bond franchise according to the Daily Mail, which is more of a gossip rag than anything else. The actor may have turned down a £68 million deal to star in the next two Bond films, which included e...

A James Bond take on Star Wars

We can all agree that James Bond movies are single-handedly keeping the art of the title credits sequence alive. With most films pushing them to the end of the movie you're seeing less and less quality credit sequences these days. Star Wars...

Review: Spectre

When Skyfall landed James Bond rose to a whole new level. We were treated to a Bond film that both embraced the new, hard edge of Daniel Craig's Bond, but paid homage to Bond's past as well. Unlike the dreadfully dour Quantum of Solace...

New Spectre poster reveals some Léa Seydoux

More Spectre posters? You're damn right more Spectre posters. Sony has so far given us two Bond heavy posters, but this time around the Bond girl gets some action. Léa Seydoux joins Daneil Craig in front of the masked ...

Sam Smith to sing Spectre's title song

It's a time honored tradition that some big artist belts out a title song for a Bond film (except for the all orchestral opening to On Her Majesty's Secret Service). In the past the songs became massive hits, but Bond had had a slump in tha...

New Bond poster drives the old school home

If there's been one thing made drastically clear about Spectre is that it is a full return to form for Bond. The character creation and building of Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall are done and we're about to get ...

Sam Mendes not returning to Bond after Spectre

When Sam Mendes originally came on to direct Skyfall the idea was that he would possibly stick around for a sort of trilogy. That almost fell through when production delays led him to almost not direct Spectre, but once he came back ma...

First TV Spot for Spectre

James Bond is set to return with Spectre later this year, and as the 24th instalment in the franchise, it is unsurprisingly on a lot of people's "most anticipated lists" - mine included. Now we have some new footage to drool over until the ...

Daniel Craig injured filming Spectre

Spectre is looking pretty darn good. But it isn't done shooting yet, and there's a few more bumps in the road for it to handle. Daniel Craig recently received surgery on his knee for an injury that occurred while fiming the 24th Bond Movie....

Bond producers: Idris Elba would be great as 007

Idris Elba is truly one of Britain's greatest treasures. Between his appearances in The Wire, Pacific Rim and Luther (to name a few), his sheer perfection as an actor and a human being is basically a given, so it's no surprise that there's ...

First teaser poster for Spectre reveals an all black Bond

Here comes Spectre. Well, at least the true beginning of all the teases. Sure they had that onset video, but now we get our first full look at Craig in his next turn as Bond, and he's looking sharp as hell. Seriously, his eyes are kind of m...

Stephanie Sigman is Spectre's latest Bond Girl

There is a new James Bond movie out this year. I'm falling over myself with excitement, and I don't even like James Bond! Such an icon he is in my home country that the presence of a new Bond film tickles my soul in ways few franchises do, ...

First look at Bautista in Spectre

As we quickly approach the fall release of Spectre, hype for James Bond's 24th outing is fast reaching a fever pitch. 2012's Skyfall righted the ship after the disappointing 2008 outing Quantum of Solace, and fans have been wondering what k...

First look at Daniel Craig's James Bond in Spectre

Can you feel that? That's me getting way too excited by a far too short feature on the beginning of shooting on Spectre in Austria and a single image of Daniel Craig as Bond. Sony released both the video and image today and they're ja...

Christoph Waltz joins Bond 24 cast

Think of an actor that you'd like to see as a Bond villain because it's like they were born to play a Bond villain. Was it Christoph Waltz? It should have been. And since you did think of him you'll be excited to hear that Waltz will be joi...

Dave Bautista to play Bond villain

Bond villain casting alert! Is that a thing? It should be. Bond villains are awesome, especially the ridiculous henchman, but we really haven't had that iconic henchman show up since Craig took over. You know, an Oddjob or Jaws. Dave Bautis...

Her and Interstellar cinematographer to join Bond 24

One major worry for Bond 24 being as good as Skyfall was that cinematographer Roger Deakins wasn't returning, His cinematography for the film set it apart from some of the more rote Bond films and should have netted him an Academy...

Bond 24 starts shooting in December

I never really get excited for news that a film has started to shoot because it really doesn't affect anything. You don't get reports that books have gone to the publisher or people have started to work on games. You just get news that they...

Watch Pierce Brosnan play GoldenEye 007 on the Nintendo 64

I'm pretty sure everyone who grew up in the 90s either had or knew someone who had the James Bond videogame GoldenEye 007. I literally have two N64 copies of this game. It's probably one of the most popular games of the Nintendo 64 generat...
