Sam Mendes's first post-Bond project will be directing and co-writing World War I movie 1917 for Steven Spielberg's Amblin, it's been announced.
‘Casino Royale’ was released back in 2006, so we look back the crazy anti-Craig fan reaction that greeted the announcement he would take over from Pierce Brosnan as 007. The trolling began the moment Daniel Craig arrived by speedboat at the London press conference unveiling him as the new James Bond – wearing a life jacket. Immediately, so-called 007 fans started whinging that James would never be such a wuss, clearly confused that the ‘Layer Cake’ star was a 37-year-old actor from Chester and not a real secret agent.
Australian underwear brand Bond is playing on gender body issues in its latest campaign, with dads in underwear discussing how fatherhood changed their bodies.
Could this be the reason Daniel Craig won’t play 007 again? According to former Bond girl Caterina Murino, the pressure of being James Bond led to Daniel Craig turning down a staggering £80 million to return to the role. “It’s hugely stressful being Bond,” she told the Sunday People.
Gillian Anderson has rather gamely responded to fan chat suggesting that she’d make the perfect replacement for current 007 Daniel Craig. Jane Bond,” she wrote. Reports emerged last week that Daniel Craig has turned down a £68 million offer to make more two movies in the 007 series.
Sometimes a movie comes out before people are ready for it – whether it’s because of the themes involved, what you see on-screen, or the style of filmmaking. Back when it was released in 1989, audiences were taken aback by Timothy Dalton’s brutal second Bond film. Fast forward to 2006 however and Daniel Craig’s version of Bond returned to Dalton’s gritty ways, though ‘Casino Royale’ was a huge critical and commercial hit.
Actor Mark Strong appears to know something we don’t… well, at least not for sure. The ‘Kingsman’ star seems pretty sure that he’ll never get to play alongside Daniel Craig’s 007 because the actor is now done with playing him. While speaking to Shortlist, and asked whether he’d be up for the Bond series, Strong said: “Do you know what, I’d have loved to have played the villain in a Bond movie while Daniel was doing it because he’s a pal and that would have been great.
Daniel Craig’s days as James Bond could be numbered. Who could take on the role of Ian Fleming’s gentleman spy next? Based on the bookies’ favourites (with a few humble suggestions of our own) here are the actors who we think could potentially be the 007th official Bond…
An auteur like David Fincher takes as much time over his credits as he does the rest of the movie and several of his films have iconic titles. Ask a movie nerd to name a title designer and chances are Saul Bass is what they’ll come up with. This 1955 junkie drama starring Frank Sinatra was way ahead of its time and the spare but beautiful titles illustrate a heroin addict’s arm through the medium of cut-out paper.
In the new James Bond film, released in the United States today, you can spot Hanton in the chase sequence in Austria, where he is a passenger in the car, speeding down a dangerously snowy road. In Quantum of Solace, Hanton served as Daniel Craig’s James Bond stunt double did a balcony jump from three stories up in Panama without safety wires or cables. Hanton has won three SAG awards for his work in Skyfall, Inception, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, and holds a 2009 Guinness World Record for the most targets hit with a back somersault throw in one hour.
