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 Skyfall (the...

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

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...

Ahead of the new trailer, meet James Bond's new buddies in these No Time To Die posters

The first trailer for No Time To Die, the 25th James Bond movie (and supposedly Daniel Craig’s final outing in the series), will be released at some point tomorrow, but the official James Bond Twitter account has shared a bunch of character posters in advance of the premiere that give us all a chance to get reacquainted with Mr. Bond and his pals. Much like we did with that batch of Star Wars...

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...

Bond 25 finally gets an actual title, and it's all right

Bond 25 finally gets an actual title, and it's all right

The movie formerly known as Bond 25 has been blessed with a title and a release date, which means it’s a real, big-boy movie now. No Time To Die will arrive in theaters on April 8, 2020, as evidenced by this tweet and accompanying title teaser:

No Time To Die is certainly evocative—there’s Die Another Day and Tomorrow Never Dies , but where those titles were concerned with the banal concept...

It's Rumor Time: Captain Marvel's Lashana Lynch might take over the 007 codename in Bond 25

It's Rumor Time: Captain Marvel's Lashana Lynch might take over the 007 codename in Bond 25

According to an unverified report from The Daily Mail, Daniel Craig may be getting some competition at MI6 in the upcoming Bond 25. Now, before we get into this, it’s worth reiterating that this is an unverified report from a “movie insider,” and The Daily Mail isn’t exactly the most unimpeachable news outlet, so it is just a rumor. It could be true, it could be as far from the the truth as...

Idris Elba is disappointed that so many racists don't want him to be James Bond

Idris Elba is disappointed that so many racists don't want him to be James Bond

“Should Idris Elba play James Bond?” is a question that tends to bubble up into the public consciousness every few years , regardless of where the next James Bond movie is in its development. The question is generally accompanied by a big fan campaign to get Elba cast as Bond—even if there is already someone playing Bond and the new Bond movie is already being filmed—as well as a similarly...

Welcome to Random Roles, wherein we talk to actors about the characters who defined their careers. The catch: They don’t know beforehand what roles we’ll ask them about.

Behind-the-scenes Bond 25 clip desperately assures you that, no, seriously, everything's going great

Behind-the-scenes Bond 25 clip desperately assures you that, no, seriously, everything's going great

James Bond, government murderer in the service of British imperialism, seems lately to have finally received the curse he so richly deserved. His latest film, referred to for millennia now by its Bond 25 working title, has gone wrong in just about every way a film can go wrong. To wit: the project chewed up and spit out director Danny Boyle , was delayed after star Daniel Craig busted his...

Phoebe Waller-Bridge says it’s important that the new Bond film “treats women properly”

Phoebe Waller-Bridge says it’s important that the new Bond film “treats women properly”

Phoebe Waller-Bridge is on a hell of a well-deserved hot streak. The recently released second season of her Amazon series Fleabag is receiving rave reviews (even the jumpsuit she wore in the premiere has become a sensation), and she has also wrapped the second season of  Killing Eve as an executive producer.

Now she’s script-polishing the upcoming James Bond movie , which recently began...

Paula Abdul dances, conducts surprise audition for Bond's next Oddjob at Billboard Awards

Paula Abdul dances, conducts surprise audition for Bond's next Oddjob at Billboard Awards

The most recent crop of Bond movies show a willingness to revisit classic characters from the spy series’ long history. After going so far as to feature Christoph Waltz as a 21st century Blofeld, scarred eye and all, the sky seems to be the limit for which figures from the spy’s past might return in films to come.

One celebrity who’s taken notice of this, as evidenced by some vicious,...

Daniel Craig reportedly asked Phoebe Waller-Bridge to make the next James Bond movie funnier

Daniel Craig reportedly asked Phoebe Waller-Bridge to make the next James Bond movie funnier

Daniel Craig was once very adamant that he would not return to the James Bond franchise, but now that he’s committed to sticking around for Bond 25—or is it Shatterhand? —it sounds like director Cary Fukunaga is willing to do whatever he needs to keep Craig happy. According to The Guardian, that includes allowing Craig to cater to his desire for more “quirkiness” in the series by bringing in...

Bond 25's goofy working title might offer a clue about the villain

With Cary Fukunaga in the director’s chair , Bond 25 is gearing up to finally head into production–with Daniel Craig in tow–this April. And according to a new report from The Guardian, the latest installment in the 007 series is operating under the working title Shatterhand–which is not a new Scandinavian murder mystery on Netflix, although it probably should be. Most movies use working...

Léa Seydoux's Bond girl will be back for Bond 25

Léa Seydoux's Bond girl will be back for Bond 25

Any hope for a female James Bond was quickly squashed earlier this year by Barbara Broccoli, as the longtime producer said the superspy has always been a dude, and will most likely remain one. Fine, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have kickass Bond girls. The woman who most recently fought alongside Bond—and then, of course, fell helplessly into his bed—was Léa Seydoux’s Dr. Madeleine Swann,...

James Bond will always be a man, says executive producer Barbara Broccoli

Jodie Whittaker debuted (brilliantly ) as Doctor Who this past weekend, helping set a precedent by proving the malleability of characters we’ve come to identify as traditionally male. Hopefully that precedent gets a chance to play out in other franchises, but there’s one for which you shouldn’t hold your breath: James Bond. Executive producer Barbara Broccoli just made a decidedly definitive...

True Detective's Cary Fukunaga to direct the next Bond movie

Variety reports tonight that the producers of the resolutely unkillable James Bond film franchise have found their replacement for recently ousted director Danny Boyle , announcing that Cary Fukunaga will be helming the 25th film in the spy-action series. Fukunaga is probably still best known for directing the entirety of the celebrated first season of True Detective—and we have to confess...
