There are mostly new releases this week, and it’s the television seasons that are the must buys. The Criterion Collection is releasing the first title they’re going to intentionally double dip, while one of the most underrated releases of 2013 hits the digital format. New: All is Lost: Robert Redford stars by himself in this tale of a sailor whose ship is wounded in the...

Pitt Poster Preview
One of the most striking things about the latest clip of Ridley Scott's The Counselor is how solid Michael Fassbender's American accent is, but considering we've heard the actor (whose father was German, but was raised in Ireland) do a perfect Queen's English, that should probably be no surprise.

While everyone is currently poised to leap onto whatever morsels of information leak out of the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, another teaser trailer for The Counselor snuck online.  The film, which features a pretty stellar pedigree (written by novelist Cormac McCarthy, directed by Ridley Scott, and starring Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Cameron...

The Counselor
There's no denying the last couple years of Ridley Scott's career have been hit and miss (Body of Lies, Robin Hood, and Prometheus are his last three efforts), but there's also no denying that he's still one of the best working filmmakers, and generally does well when he's working with a good script. Well, not only...

To The Wonder: Movie Review

If Terrence Malick's reputation as a misfit genius has proceeded him since his return to cinema in the 1990's, it was partly because he never talked to press and his films often took years to come out. So that he followed The Tree of Life so quickly with To The Wonder -- on top of the latter being a much more minor key...

Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams in 'To the Wonder'
The trailer for To The Wonder, Terrence Malick’s third film in seven years (remember, this is the guy who went from 1978 to 1998 before following up Days of Heaven with his third film, The Thin Red Line), is here, and it plays roughly like Malick cinematography porn.  All the staples of modern Malick are here:...

'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...

Skyfall offers the triumphant return of James Bond for his fiftieth anniversary. But Daniel Craig's Bond gets no pensioner's watch for his service,  instead he gets one of the best entries in the franchise. Offering one of the greatest casts and the best cinematography in the franchise's long history, Skyfall is the event blockbuster you...

While the domestic trailer for Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond film and the third to star Daniel Craig, featured a more well-rounded look at the film’s plot and the relationship between Bond (Craig) and M (Judy Dench), the newest international trailer gives us more of a glimpse of Javier Bardem’s bizarrely coiffed new villain, Raoul Silva.  Once again, Javier Bardem...

Daniel Craig James Bond Skyfall
It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a great Bond film—2006’s Casino Royale was great fun, but 2008’s Quantum of Solace was hastily-edited silliness—and it looks like this year’s Skyfall may fit the bill for Bond excellence.  With Daniel Craig returning as 007, Javier Bardem showing up as an oddly-coifed Big Bad, and...

Yesterday, we showed you the Olympic teaser for the 23rd James Bond flick, Skyfall, and now and now we have the full international trailer.  And despite the fact that it appears to have the exact same plot as the first Mission: Impossible film—a secret government agency loses the list of names of all current secret agents in the field—the Sam...

There’s been a heavy influx of official photos from the set of Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond film, over the past several months; that said; the film has been relatively lacking in traditional advertising.  That changes now: the film’s teaser trailer is set for a May 21st release, and today, we’ve got the official teaser poster.   It’s one that features Daniel Craig’s James...

Daniel Craig as James Bond in Skyfall
When is a Bond Girl not a "Bond Girl?" Naomie Harris and Bérénice Marlohe are joining Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem and Judi Dench in Skyfall, and both seem, superficially, like BGs. But are there rules? Do you have to - at the very least - make a pass at James Bond to join the club? Perhaps director Sam Mendes is the final arbiter, but it seems unlikely that Dench is...

First Photos of Javier Bardem's Bond Villain in Skyfall

Javier Bardem on the set of Skyfall
The latest James Bond film has kept its plot under wraps fairly well - little is known about what happens in the film other than modest plot details. But when it comes to shooting, it's virtually impossible to go outside and not have someone take photos. And so Oh No They Didn't! is the first to show Javier Bardem on the set of Skyfall.

New 'Skyfall' Image Shows James Bond Packing Some Heat

Last month, we reported on the first official picture from Skyfall, the 23rd film in the James Bond franchise (and the third film in the Daniel Craig continuity).  The picture wasn’t exactly action packed and didn’t reveal much, showing as it did the back of Bond’s head as he casually sat by a pool with his legs in the water; however, this new picture features a rough-looking...
