"Daniel, watch out, I'm coming for your job," the "Atomic Blonde" star warns the current 007 star. Just don't call her Jane Bond.
It’s hard to know exactly what’s going on with Daniel Craig’s future as James Bond. Ever since the release of ‘Spectre’ it’s been widely assumed that Daniel Craig wouldn’t be returning as the world’s most famous spy.
You want your movie to make an impact before it has even been released? Simply get your poster banned, and bingo – instant interest! These 10 movie posters were deemed too hot for cinema walls (and quite a few are NSFW).
Sometimes a movie comes out before people are ready for it – whether it’s because of the themes involved, what you see on-screen, or the style of filmmaking. Back when it was released in 1989, audiences were taken aback by Timothy Dalton’s brutal second Bond film. Fast forward to 2006 however and Daniel Craig’s version of Bond returned to Dalton’s gritty ways, though ‘Casino Royale’ was a huge critical and commercial hit.
You don’t know them and they don’t get the big bucks or grace the pages of celebrity magazines, but they are the amazing people who make your favourite actors look like superheroes on-screen. Say hello to the stunt doubles – you won’t watch an action sequence with any of these actors in the same way again.
Daniel Craig’s days as James Bond could be numbered. Who could take on the role of Ian Fleming’s gentleman spy next? Based on the bookies’ favourites (with a few humble suggestions of our own) here are the actors who we think could potentially be 007th official Bond…
The talk of Daniel Craig having a mystery cameo in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ appears to be true… but who is he? Craig was filming 'Spectre’ at the same time as J.J. Abrams was making 'The Force Awakens’ at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, and must have nipped over to the Lucasfilm soundstage to make the transformation from 007 to First Order henchman. Speaking to the Daily Mail, a source at Disney said: “You’re close to the truth.
Léa Seydoux in ‘Spectre’ (MGM/Sony) With 2012’s Skyfall and this week’s Spectre, director Sam Mendes and star Daniel Craig worked to create a new James Bond, turning an immortal, sex-crazed Teflon tuxedo into a bleeding, bruised middle-aged man on a mission. Luckily, they found a perfect partner in French actress Léa Seydoux. Warning: Minor spoilers for Spectre below: The 30-year-old French actress, who broke out in 2013 with the critically acclaimed relationship drama Blue is the Warmest Color, plays Dr. Madeleine Swann, a physician with a link to Bond’s troubled last few years — and who’s running from her own dark past. She saves him.” Swann turns out to be the estranged daughter of the assassin Mr. White, the top villain in Casino Royale (2006) and its sequel, Quantum of Solace (2008). The character, played by Jesper Christensen, shows up again in SPECTRE — part of Mendes’ effort to tie all the Craig-era films together — and gives Bond some important information, in exchange for a promise that Bond will keep Swann safe.
Here at the Superfan offices, some of the staff decided to cast their hats into the ring, debating whose portrayal was the hands-down all-time best James Bond.
James Bond star Daniel Craig certainly keeps us on our toes. In one interview, he says he’ll continue playing the iconic role as long as he’s able; in the next, he suggests he wants out immediately. The interview Craig just gave to Time Out London belongs firmly in the latter category, with the soon-to-be four-time 007 declaring, “Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists [than shoot another Bond]… “I’m over it at the moment.
Here’s what we know so far about director Sam Mendes’ blockbuster, which hits theaters on November 6. The official logline explains that, “a cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization,” known as SPECTRE. Dedicated Bond fans will know about that evil empire’s long history with the franchise, starting with the very first 007 movie Dr. No in 1963.
After shooting at London’s Pinewood Studio and making European excursions to Rome and the mountains of Austria, the cast and crew of SPECTRE have made their way to Mexico City to continue production on the 24th James Bond film. The movie, which brings back Daniel Craig as the British secret agent 007, began shooting in the Mexican capital last week.
From the looks of the first teaser poster for SPECTRE, the next James Bond movie will be a little bit more casual. Daniel Craig, back for a fourth time as 007, stands locked and loaded in the center of the poster, which the film franchise debuted on Twitter on Tuesday. To casual observers, it might seem like a boring bit of promotional art — after all, it’s a glower-powered a guy against a grey background — but for Bond historians, it actually holds plenty of intrigue.
