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…
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.
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.
