While most of the most-anticipated blockbusters of the next two years involve cyborgs, people in capes, dinosaurs, time-travelers, or people who drive cars super-fast, two of the films we’re looking forward to the most are the as-yet untitled Bond 24 and Bond 25, the two remaining James Bond films in which Daniel Craig is...

'Bond 24': Daniel Craig Hints At Returning To The Tone Of Classic Bond...

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...

It’s been a long and rocky road to finally come to the day in which Skyfall director Sam Mendes is officially confirmed as the director of the as-yet untitled 24th James Bond film—as we’ve previously reported, Mendes deferred, stating his busy schedule wouldn’t allow it.  Then, it was reported that MGM was courting Mendes to return, and the director was open to negotiate.  And...

Last we heard, Sam Mendes was the front runner for directing Bond 24, following his billion dollar triumph with Skyfall. That might not be true, as it appears that Mendes won't just be back for the next Bond adventure... He may be making a trilogy.

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

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.

This has been a huge pivot point for movies in how they're made and distributed. 2012 was the year where the film industry turned its back on 35 millimeter film (which has been the standard for well over a century), with digital projection no longer just an option but the standard. At the same time a filmmaker like Paul Thomas Anderson shot a movie on 70mm - a format that hadn't been used...

As we're between both holidays and event films, no one took this weekend to launch a big title, so we're going to have a logjam of films released December 21-25, and then next week is The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. But right now it's quiet so James Bond trumped with his Skyfall.

We're in between holidays at the moment, and because we're about to be hit with a tsunami of big end of year pictures, it's a quiet weekend, which should see either James Bond or Twilight in the top spot. We're leaning toward the former, but it could be close.

Studios often don't put a movie out the week after Thanksgiving, and if it wasn't for a shuffle a couple weeks ago, we wouldn't be getting a new movie at all. That's because it's usually considered a dead spot, or dumping ground for bad movies. To wit, last year saw no new wide releases, while in 2010 the only film opening wide was The Warrior's Way. Remember that...
