Published by

Daniel Craig
A through-line that has marked the Daniel Craig-era of James Bond films has been that this more modern Bond is edgier, grittier, and far more brutal than some of the more ironic or even hammier performances of his Bond predecessors.  2012’s insanely successful Skyfall lightened up somewhat—moving beyond the dark Vesper storyline and injecting the film with several classic bits...

'Bond 24' Won't Happen For Another Three Years

Published by

Daniel Craig
Following the long, uncertain gap between 2008’s Quantum of Solace and 2012’s excellent Skyfall (with Skyfall being delayed due to serious financial issues) one would assume that MGM and producers of the James Bond films would be rushing the as-yet unnamed 24th Bond film into production, especially because of Skyfall’s runaway...

James Bond franchise producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G.

David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, despite being based upon both a hit series of novels and a popular foreign film series, didn’t exactly set the box office on fire when it was released, becoming a mild to moderate success and generally considered to be one of Fincher’s lesser efforts.  That said, a sequel, The Girl Who Played with Fire,...

'Skyfall' Enjoys Record-Breaking Opening Weekend Overseas

Published by

Daniel Craig
While the American box office didn’t exactly set any records over the weekend—unless you count it as a new low (high?) in general audiences apathy towards forward-thinking flicks, seeing as how Cloud Atlas heavily crashed and burned—overseas, it was a different story.  In the European market, there was one name above all:  Bond, James Bond (ugh, forgive me for doing that, it...

Right now a couple of popular British characters may be going through a transitional period within the next couple of years. There's been chatter of the 12th Doctor in Doctor Who being played by a woman, and the James Bond franchise may face the same treatment. No, they're not going to change James Bond into a woman (that'd be just plain weird) but Idris Elba may be...

One of the highlights—or biggest eyeroll moments, depending on how you feel about Bond films—of the Skyfall trailer takes places when the back of a train is ripped off and James Bond leaps inside, lands, and coolly adjusts his cufflinks because, well, he’s James Bond and this is all in a day’s work and, besides, it’s his job to look cool.  Well, today, in honor of the 50th...
