Ralph Fiennes Says BOND 24 Starts Filming in October

by     Posted 56 days ago

We know pretty much nothing about the next James Bond film, but we do know that 2012’s Skyfall will be an incredibly tough act to follow.  Director Sam Mendes and screenwriter John Logan will give it their best shot, though, as the duo are set to return in their respective duties for Bond 24.  The pic won’t be hitting theaters until October 2015 in the U.K. and November 2015 in the U.S., but we now have word of when filming is set to get underway as Ralph Fiennes tells MTV News, “It’s meant to start shooting in October.”  The actor will be reprising his role as Gareth Mallory in the next pic and he added that he hasn’t yet seen a script so he couldn’t possibly tease anything about the plot, though he noted that he’d probably be sworn to secrecy anyway.

Daniel Craig will return in the 24th Bond film and we assume that Naomie Harris (aka Moneypenny) will be back as well, but we recently learned the sad news that Skyfall cinematographer and all-around Master Roger Deakins will not be returning for the follow-up.

New Trailer for MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM Accompanied by New U2 Song

A new trailer for director Justin Chadwick’s biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom has been released, which itself is accompanied by a new song from U2.  The film stars Idris Elba and chronicles the life of Nelson Mandela from his childhood in a rural village to his election as president of South Africa.  This new trailer showcases Elba’s magnetic performance as the South African leader, and it also does a nice job of depicting the turmoil with which Mandela was surrounded.  This pic has thus far received mixed-to-positive reviews, with many noting that it simply tries to cover too much ground, but I’m still interested to see how Elba embodies Mandela throughout so many different periods of his life.  As for the U2 song “Ordinary Love,” it’s very current-era U2.

The Weinstein Company has released first trailer for director Justin Chadwick’s (The Other Boleyn Girl) biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.  The film stars Idris Elba and chronicles the life of Nelson Mandela from his childhood in a rural village to his election as president of South Africa.  Elba is unsurprisingly fantastic, and the pic actually looks to take on a pretty large scope when tackling Mandela’s story.  As far as biopics go, Long Walk to Freedom looks quite impressive.

New Posters and UK Teaser Trailer for MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM Starring Idris Elba and Naomie Harris

New posters and a U.K. teaser trailer have been released for the biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.  The film stars Idris Elba as Nelson Mandela and co-stars Naomie Harris in as his wife Winnie the tale of “Mandela’s extraordinary life, from his childhood in a rural village through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected President of South Africa.”  I have absolutely no idea what this could possibly add to what we already know about Mandela despite the promises of the posters.  He’s a living saint, and all this trailer tells me is that Elba does a killer impression of the man.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer along with a couple of new posters.  Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom opens in the U.K. on January 3, 2014.

Naomie-Harris-Berenice-Marlohe-Skyfall-interview

At the recent New York press day for Skyfall, I was able to speak with Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe (the newest “Bond” girl).  We talked about  what was it like making Skyfall and collaborating with Sam Mendes, how the film is very grounded and it’s the old versus the new, since they both have intimate scenes with Daniel Craig, what was he like to work with and a lot more.

I absolutely loved Skyfall.  Director Sam Mendes has crafted one of the best James Bond movies ever made.  While the Bond franchise is now 50 years old, Mendes has shown the best might be yet to come.  I really can’t recommend this film enough.  For all our Skyfall coverage including our review, clips, posters, my set visit and more, click hereSkyfall also stars Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Helen McCrory, Ralph Fiennes, and Ben Whishaw.  Hit the jump to watch the interview.

SKYFALL Review

by     Posted 1 year, 166 days ago

daniel-craig-skyfall-slice

The James Bond film franchise has stood for 50 years.  It has lived, died, returned, died some more, returned again, and as the longest-running blockbuster franchise in history, it constantly walks the line between life and death regarding the series’ potency.  There likely will always be another James Bond film, but the character’s relevancy is always in question.  Can the modern audience accept Bond in a world where a grittier spy like Jason Bourne seemingly has more power to engage audiences?  Isn’t James Bond a relic that can’t convincingly survive in a post-9/11 world?  The latest Bond film, Skyfall, explores these question is a fascinating, compelling manner and does so within one of the series’ most exhilarating, perfectly crafted, and absolutely captivating entries to date.

Sam Mendes’ James Bond flick, Skyfall, the 23rd installment in the famed franchise, opened strongly in the U.K. with $32 million, but has continued that trend to set a one-week box office record.  Pulling in $60 million, Skyfall beats out previous seven-day record holder, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, which nabbed $57 million in 2011.  Internationally, Skyfall claimed $83 million (up from its initial estimate of $77 million) on its opening day and has since crossed the $100 million mark.  This achievement is especially remarkable considering there’s no ticket price uptick for 3D.  Hit the jump to see what other records Skfyfall has set, and what the positive buzz means for its domestic opening on November 9th.

Will There Be a Black James Bond One Day? Idris Elba Reportedly Tested for the Role

The buzz on the upcoming James Bond film, Skyfall, has been ecstatic, so of course it’s time to rush past the present and look to the future.  And the future could hold a black James Bond.  If that seems like a highly unlikely possibility, then it should come as a surprise that Bond producer Barbara Broccoli met with Idris Elba (Prometheus) for the role according to Skyfall actress Naomie Harris.  “I didn’t realize that there was this talk and then I did a film with Idris,” said Harris, “and he said that he met Barbara Broccoli and that it does seem like there is a possibility in the future that there could very well be a black James Bond.”

4 new clips from director Sam Mendes’ James Bond film Skyfall have been released.  I’m trying my best to temper my expectations following the incredibly positive early reviews, but these new clips aren’t doing me any favors.  All signs point to Mendes having crafted a Bond film for the books, and opening day can’t get here soon enough.  We’ll have video interviews with the cast soon, but until then check out Steve’s set visit and on-set interviews with MendesDaniel Craig and producer Barbara BroccoliBerenice Marlohe, and Naomie Harris.

In the newest clip released for Sam Mendes’ James Bond flick, Skyfall, Bond (Daniel Craig) is up to old habits: namely gambling and womanizing.  This thirty-second spot shows Bond playing cavalier with his hard-earned winnings and introduces him to Severine (Berenice Marlohe).  They must have hit it off since they later meet up for a refreshing Heineken on a passenger train.  We also have the first look at Harald Zwart’s The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones in a behind-the-scenes featurette with cast interviews.

Skyfall, also starring Judi Dench, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCrory, Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris, opens November 9th stateside. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones stars Lily Collins, Lena Headey, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Kevin Durand and opens August 23rd, 2013.  Hit the jump to check out the clip and featurette.

If you missed any of the recent trailers for Sam Mendes’ James Bond flick, Skyfall, or the excellent theme song by Adele, you’re in luck because now you can enjoy them both together!  The theme song is great on its own and I’m sure that it’ll fit nicely with the opening credits of Skyfall, but it feels a bit forced in this patched together trailer.

Skyfall stars Daniel Craig, Ben Whishaw, Bérénice Marlohe, Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Helen McCroy, Albert Finney, Ralph Fiennes and Javier Bardem.  It opens stateside November 9th.  Hit the jump to see the new trailer.

Sony Pictures has released fifteen new images from the upcoming James Bond film, Skyfall.  As you’ll see from the images, new MI6 agent Eve (Naomie Harris) just won’t be about in the rough-and-tumble field.  She’ll also get to dress up nice and pretty to kick some ass.  Also, looking at these images and at the trailer, I love the way cinematographer Roger Deakins has shot this film.  Then again, I love the way Roger Deakins shoots anything.

New Videoblog for SKYFALL Focuses on Bond Girls Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe

by     Posted 1 year, 215 days ago

naomie-harris-skyfall-slice

A new videoblog for Skyfall has landed online, and this time the Bond girls are the focus.  Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe play two very different female characters in director Sam Mendes’ entry in the franchise, but both actresses are aware of how the female role in the Bond films has changed over the years.  Harris notes that it’s “not enough just to look pretty anymore,” and her field agent can more than hold her own.  Marlohe, on the other hand, describes her character as a femme fatale with a great deal of complexity.  It’s been nice to see the series evolve from its chauvinistic roots, and I’m eager to see what Harris and Marlohe bring to the table.

Hit the jump to watch the videoblog.  The film also stars Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Ben Whishaw, Javier Bardem, and Ralph FiennesSkyfall opens on November 9th.
