Pierce Brosnan says Quentin Tarantino once drunkenly pitched him a Bond movie

Pierce Brosnan says Quentin Tarantino once drunkenly pitched him a Bond movie

There are two things you should do when you meet the actor who currently plays James Bond at a bar: You order them a martini, you order yourself a martini, and then you pitch them on your dream 007 movie. Granted, most of us would get dragged off by security before we even got to the first step, but Quentin Tarantino isn’t like most of us, and according to Pierce Brosnan, he actually managed...

Throw yourself a James Bond marathon when classic 007 movies hit Amazon Prime in April

Throw yourself a James Bond marathon when classic 007 movies hit Amazon Prime in April

No Time to Die may be delayed until November , but that doesn’t mean your April should be James Bond-free. A ton of classic 007 titles —ranging from the second film in the franchise, From Russia With Love starring Sean Connery, to Pierce Brosnan’s final mission as the British spy, Die Another Day —are hitting Amazon Prime Video next month, along with more recent theatrical releases like

On SNL, Daniel Craig's retiring Bond finally loosens up with some craps

On SNL, Daniel Craig's retiring Bond finally loosens up with some craps

On last night’s

Daniel Craig-hosted Saturday Night Live, the finally retiring James Bond started off the show by assuring everyone that he’s just as sophisticated (as are all British people) as the tuxedo-clad, bed-hopping hired murderer he’s played since 2006. And then the Knives Out star chucked all that tosh out of the window by throwing to a mid-monologue, lovingly crafted short film...

No Time To Die release pushed back to November

No Time To Die release pushed back to November

Maybe the real villain of

No Time To Die is its very existence. After suffering numerous delays due to losing Danny Boyle (probably for the best, if we’re being honest) and Daniel Craig’s busted ankle , the additional script rewrites, an on-set explosion , and maybe some other stuff we’re forgetting but have no doubt covered here, the release of the 25th James Bond film has now been pushed...

Nintendo 64 classic Goldeneye almost never got its license to kill

Nintendo 64 classic Goldeneye almost never got its license to kill

We suspect an entire generation of video game nerds owe their current-day carpal tunnel syndromes to the countless hours spent stiffly gripping their Nintendo 64 controllers while their so-called “friends” proceeded to handily kick their asses in

Goldeneye multiplayer . Even if you still can’t quite forgive those those shit-talking buddies of yours, it’s hard to place much blame on the video...

Do we have time to listen to Billie Eilish's Bond theme song for No Time To Die?

Do we have time to listen to Billie Eilish's Bond theme song for No Time To Die?

The James Bond movie theme song has long been a milestone in the career of musical artists, something that Daniel Craig’s tenure in the role of the international superspy has only made more clear, as a wide variety of artists have striven to get their Shirley Bassey on on his behalf. Chris Cornell, Jack White, Alicia Keys, Adele, and Sam Smith have all sung the backing tunes for Craig’s...

James Bond still has No Time To Die in this Super Bowl spot

James Bond still has No Time To Die in this Super Bowl spot

The Super Bowl, with all of its celebrations of capitalism and hot wings, is a very American event, but that didn’t stop 007 from sneaking in and making some noise for Her Majesty’s Secret Service with a new trailer for No Time To Die. Well, “trailer” might be overselling it, because this is pretty short and doesn’t have a lot of new stuff. What it does have, though, is James Bond...

Apple and Netflix are apparently fighting over MGM of all things

Peacock and HBO Max aren’t here yet, so we’re not quite all the way into the Streampocalypse, but an early combatant and one of the freshest competitors are apparently fighting each other for a chance to get a very specific edge on the other streamers—and not a particularly big one at that. According to a long CNBC report about the streamers and their respective prospects, both Apple and...

Sam Mendes says "there is no victory" in directing a Bond film

Sam Mendes says "there is no victory" in directing a Bond film

There are a few certainties in life: Death and taxes, sure, but just as important is acknowledging that you can’t please everyone. It’s a plain, uncomplicated truth, and yet humans have this primitive, tribal need to be accepted, thus assuring our own inevitable misery. Sam Mendes knows this truth too well. The filmmaker delivered one hell of a good James Bond movie with

Attention, aspiring supervillains: You can just buy a million-watt laser on eBay now

With a new James Bond movie

finally coming out next year , plenty of maniacal supervillains across the world are likely remembering it’s time to get off their asses, stop procrastinating, and really put their plans to take over the world into action. While hollowing out the inside of a volcano to build a secret lab and recruiting an army of deadly supersoldiers is simple enough, navigating...

Retirement isn't easy in the official trailer for No Time To Die

Retirement isn't easy in the official trailer for No Time To Die

No Time To Die’s been beset by a number of setbacks, from

the departure of original director Danny Boyle to script issues that needed to be remedied by Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge to on-set injuries and gross scandals. There was also that odd video of Rami Malek droning on about things of which he’s a fan , but that just made us fear him more so...win?

Thankfully, the first...

Much like we did with

Daniel Craig confirms he'll soon be free of James Bond at last

Daniel Craig confirms he'll soon be free of James Bond at last

Daniel Craig’s enthusiasm for returning to the role of James Bond has vacillated wildly over the last few years, from a

smiling-but-not-with-his-eyes apex as the press tour for next year’s No Time To Die approaches, to comments from back in 2015 (directly after the release of Spectre), in which he suggested that he’d literally prefer to slash his own wrists rather than suit up in...
