Christopher Nolan Directing James Bond

Last fall, there was a lot of buzz regarding whether or not Daniel Craig would eventually return to the role of James Bond. The actor was rather vocal about how exhausting the work on Spectre was, going so far as to say that he’d rather slash his wrists than do another James Bond movie at that time. Since then, he’s equated his answer to being the same he would give if someone asked him to run a marathon after just finishing another marathon, reiterating that he loves playing James Bond.

As of last year, Daniel Craig was still the first choice to play James Bond, according to the franchise executive producer, but that didn’t stop rumors from swirling about a possible replacement. One of those names was Tom Hardy, and in a recent interview he was hesitant to address any truth to those rumors simply because of his own personal philosophy. However, he had no problem putting forth his choice to direct a James Bond film: Christopher Nolan.

Logan Score Preview

It’s no secret that a new Logan trailer is coming soon. 20th Century Fox is sending out the frames of the trailer to some lucky fans to assemble online (they’re on the way already), and the new glimpse at the Wolverine sequel should be coming shortly thereafter.

In the meantime, director James Mangold is holding fans over with some new images from the set featuring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and franchise newcomer Dafne Keen as X-23. Plus, he’s also release a snippet of the score from The Wolverine composer Marco Beltrami (not Cliff Martinez), and it sounds rather haunting and frantic.

John Wick 2 TV Spot

Ensuring that there will be at least one great action movie this year, John Wick: Chapter 2 is hitting theaters in about a month. Keanu Reeves is back as the titular assassin, and he looks even deadlier this time.

A new John Wick 2 TV spot has arrived online, featuring a couple awesome new moments of action, including a sequence that takes place in a room full of mirrors, and a chase that doesn’t end so well for one motorcyclist. As Ian McShane cautions to a soon-to-be-dead bad guy, “You stabbed the devil in the back, and now he’s coming again.” So Keanu Reeves will really be the devil this time, instead of The Devil’s Advocate.
