I have just finished watching Quantum of Solace (film) for the second time (the first being when I saw it at the cinema way back in 2008 - has it really been that long?!) and the reason I (foolishly) kept avoiding it was beause, like practically everyone, I did not rate it highly. It was essentially a combination of my own opinion at the time I first saw it and everyone dismissing it and saying it is one of the worst Bond films ever made that made me not watch it again.
However, the moment finally came when I decided to give it another shot and, to my surprise, I was very glad I did.
Firstly, I did enjoy it. This is partially due to me being a full 8 years older so I understood all of the plot this time round! Secondly, as a now experienced…Read more >

James Bond 007 is scheduled for release in November 2015, featuring interior artwork by Jason Masters (Batman Incorporated, Guardians of the Galaxy).
The news of the high-profile author's involvement with the James Bond 007 series follows Dynamite's announcement of their partnership with Ian Fleming Publications Ltd. (IFPL), the Fleming family company that owns and administers the literary copyright of Ian Fleming's published works, including his fourt…

Both James Bond and Superman are iconic characters of the UK and USA respectively, both being seen as representatives of their nations identities. With that in mind I've found it interesting the connections between The Bond film franchise and the Superman films.
In 1978, Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever, Live and Let Die & The Man with the Golden Gun director Guy Hamilton was originally slated to direct Superman: The Movie by producers Alexander and Ilya Salkind. However, when production moved to Pinewood Studios (where the Bond movies are filmed) Hamilton was forced to withdraw due to his status as a tax exile, being only allowed to be in England for thirty days, leading to Richard Donner taking over as director.
Screen writer Tom Mankiewicz, who w…Read more >

I've heard rumors that former James Bond actor Timothy Dalton is being eyed to play Batman's butler Alfred in the new Batman & Superman team up film. I think that would be really cool, especially as in some of the comics Alfred is mentioned to have worked for the British secret service, so who better than a Bond actor for the part!

Despite murmurs of wanting to let Bond go for sake of other projects, it's official: oscar-winning Skyfall director Sam Mendes will back for another round of Bond (shaken, not stirred.) Following an earlier announcement that actor Daniel Craig and screenwriter John Logan will also be returning to work on the untitled Bond 24, Sony and MGM announced today that the director, who's best known for his work on films like American Beauty and Revolutionary Road is set to return, proving that the studio and distributor are quite happy with the way things worked out with Skyfall (and for good reason -- the film was a critical darling and brought in over a billion dollars.)

I enjoyed how Bond, M and Kincade set up the booby traps in the Skyfall Lodge and the action started when Silva's men arrived. This inspired me to come up with my own home security for "unwanted guests" (but I'm going to be screwed for destroying my house). Here's how the defenses will set up:
Front yard - Aston Martin DB5 and Aston Martin V8 Vantage
Backyard - Aston Martin V12 Vanquish
Indoor - sentry guns, mines, exploding light bulbs
Weapons - Walther PPK, AK-47, hand grenades, HK-416
Last resort - Blow up my whole house
Escape - One of the Aston Martins (hopefully the DB5)Read more >

Skyfall is finally in theaters worldwide, and it has been getting amazing reviews from audiences and critics alike. They love the breathtaking work by director Sam Mendes (who cut his teeth directing plays) and cinematographer Roger Deakins. They love Javier Bardem's creepy, Julian Assange-like villain Raoul Silva. They love the Bond girls, Bérénice Marlohe and Naomie Harris. Most distinctively, however, they love Daniel Craig. Many critics have written that Skyfall has solidified the actor's place as the best to portray the character of James Bond. Astoundingly bold statements, but great news for anyone planning to see the movie this weekend!
For me, the most interesting element of this film's success is the inconsistent Bond sandwich that…Read more >

With Skyfall coming out and this being the 50th anniversary of the James Bond films, we have been doing a lot of reflection. I've compiled lists of theme songs through the decades, the 50 best gadgets, and 7 reasons why Skyfall will be stunning. We have also hosted the Ultimate Bond Movie Contest (vote here!), but now it's time to look at some of the best quotes from the Bond films, and choose your favorite!
Please vote in the poll below these choices:
In Goldfinger, the villain of the same name captures Bond, straps him to a table, and turns on a laser that slowly moves towards Bond's you-know-where. This method of interrogation is now legendary and often parodied, but the icing on the cake is Gert Fröbe'sdeliveryofthisfamousline.

Have you ever wished that George Lazenby would have starred in more than one Bond movie? Were you upset when Bond drove a BMW Z3 instead of a British-made car in GoldenEye?

007 Legends is the latest James Bond videogame to hit store shelves. The secret agent has been a part of many games since the inception of the media conglomerate. We have seen James Bond video games follow particular movies (Goldeneye, The World is Not Enough, etc) along with games creating their own unique plot (Everything or Nothing). 007 Legends is a culmination of all things bond, expanding into several different movies.
Let's compare 007 Legends to Goldeneye: Reloaded, be sure to vote on which game you feel has the better features.

007 Legends is a first-person shooter video game featuring the British secret agent James Bond. The character has been around for 50 years, spanning across book, movie, and game media. Daniel Craig lends his likeness to the character in Legends, and the game follows the exploits of the MI6 agent through various events in the conglomorate's timeline.
Here are five things you need to know about 007 Legends, and what to expect when playing.
007 Legends is a game that culminates 50 years of Bond, and celebrates the history of the long-established franchise by re-visiting various missions of past media. The game contains a single player campaign that includes one mission from each of the six actors’ eras. Danial Craig’s likeness is used for Bond i…

Yesterday, as most of us die-hard fanatics know, 007 Legends was released. A few critics have weighed in with their thoughts about the game. Here are a few snippets from publications on both the Internet and print. Make sure to voice your opinions on the matter below
No reviews thought this game was amazing.
No reviewers thought this game was okay.
In fact all of it just feels off. While there are some moments that are faithful to the source material – such as the cutscene in which Bond is strapped to a slab of gold and sweating on Goldfinger’s crotch-searing laser – for the most part 007 Legends is barely recognizable as a Bond experience, much less a tribute to the series’ proud history.

Hey James Bond fans, Porterfield might want to wait on hearing Adele's theme for Skyfall, but I'm not as patient! Good news is the song was finally released!!
Apparently, the single was officially scheduled for a premiere at 7:07 p.m. ET -- or 0:07 a.m. in the U.K. -- but a French radio station has jumped the gun, so to speak, and posted "Skyfall" earlier today.
A lot of people think Adele's sultry voice and the lyrics of the song offer a classic Bond vibe, but check it out for yourself and share your thoughts below:

Dr. No Luminous watch - Bond has a watch with a luminous, slightly radioactive face that glows in the dark. This is a holdover from Fleming's novels, in which Bond is described as having a similar watch.

October 5th is Global James Bond Day, and although some people think about explosions, tuxedos, gambling, evil villains, or martinis, one of the first things that comes to my mind is the music. Everyone is excited for the upcoming Skyfall theme, sung by Adele, so let's honor the franchise by taking a look back at the tunes.
Every James Bond film has a theme song that plays during a carefully crafted opening title sequence. We could rank them, but that would take too long. We could choose the best, but that would be too easy. Most of the themes are sung by music legends, from Paul McCartney to Madonna, but Shirley Bassey is the undisputed champion of the Bond theme, having recorded the most at three. Two of Bassey's themes are the most famous…Read more >
Hey, James Bond fans, there isn't much longer until we are gifted with the new Skyfall movie, but listen to this: the amazing singer Adele might be recording the Skyfall theme!
Check out our source here:
Reports show that Adele was seen at Abbey Road Studios earlier this month, where composer Thomas Newman spent time working on the score for Skyfall! Adele also previously hinted that she was involved in music for the film when the singer told British talk show host Jonathan Ross last fall that she was planning to record one song before the end of 2011 and that it would be “a theme.” She added, “Wow, that’s really giving something away.”
So it's not like we weren't 99.9% sure that Adele was doing the theme song for this movie, but it ha…

BOND FANS!! It isn't surprising that the James Bond franchise has lasted so long, but it will continue in the future with a movie installment in 2014!
But wait! Exciting news for Daniel Craig fans...Craig's James Bond contract has been extended to include TWO more films, giving his resume a total of FIVE 007 movies!! That means other actors are going to have to wait for their turn to play the suave secret agent for a few more years (but it will be exciting to see who the next Bond will be)!Read more >
It seems that yesterday, a screening of the Skyfall trailer took place at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. We aren't going to see the trailer until May, most likely, but we are hearing about a scene from the trailer that sounds awesome. James Bond is speaking to a shrink, using word association. The words spoken might hint something about the film:
"Country"/"England", "Gun"/"Shot", "Agent"/"Provocateur", "Murder"…"Employment"
When he hears, "murder", he thinks, "employment"? How much more Bond can you get?
During this scene, Judi Dench and Ralph Fiennes are watching James Bond from behind glass. When the shrink says, "Skyfall", Bond says, "Done."
And if that's not exciting enough, check out the new James Bond magazine cover!

Following an invite to Buckingham Palace by Queen Elizabeth herself, Daniel Craig filmed a short introduction video for the upcoming 2012 London Olympics (link to the Olympics Wiki).

As we all know, Spanish actor Javier Bardem is known for playing the ultimate bad guy in No Country for Old Men. But it seems that wasn't his last stint as a villain. In the upcoming James Bond film, Skyfall, he will be playing Silva, a blonde villain obsessed with world domination--funny seeing him with those flaxen locks, huh?
Other than Javier Bardem, we know that Judi Dench will continue her role as M, and Sam Mendes will direct. Of course, Daniel Craig will continue playing James Bond. A blonde Bond and villain? This might be a first!

The untitled next James Bond film, "James Bond 23" might have a new Bond Girl! Since the movie will be coming to theaters next year (November 9, 2012), rumors have been flying about as to which actress will land the infamous Bond girl role, joining the impressive cast of Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, and Naomi Harris. Javier Bardem has officially announced that he is the next Bond villain, pitting him against Craig.
French actress Berenice Marlohe is the first serious contender for the Bond Girl role. She is not very well known in the States, but sure to be some serious eye candy, as all Bond ladies tend to be. Do you have any choice picks for your next Bond girl? Think Bardem will be an effective villain? Tell us in the comme…Read more >
