Though James Bond fans were excited to see what director Sam Mendes did with Spectre after knocking Skyfall out of the park back in 2012, plenty were disappointed when the film finally hit theaters last fall. While this writer didn’t find the film to be downright terrible, mostly enjoying the throwback elements of the story and villain being utilized, the film certainly lacked the kind of punch you hope to get from a 007 adventure.
Now, the Spectre Honest Trailer really sticks it to the movie, calling it “Bond-by-the-numbers,” which is pretty hard to argue with. Plus there’s a great reference to the Nintendo 64 video game Goldeneye. Read More »

Last fall brought the return of Daniel Craig as James Bond in Spectre, and along with him came a classic villain played by Christoph Waltz. As of now the future of the 007 franchise is uncertain, with no new movie in development and no official or unofficial sequel date on the horizon, but there may be one detail that is already set.
Christoph Waltz is rumored to be coming back not just for Bond 25, but also for Bond 26. However, there’s a catch. Waltz will only return for the sequels if Daniel Craig comes back as James Bond. Otherwise he’s out. Find out more below, but beware of spoilers for Spectre if you haven’t seen it. Read More »
We all know how annoying it is when a cell phone goes off during the middle of a movie. Now, imagine how much more bothersome it is for a cell to go off during the shooting of a movie. Just think of some actor giving a scene their all, the lighting is perfect, and right before they get the perfect shot.. it’s killed by somebody’s android phone. That must happen, and apparently, it’s occurred more than a few times to Quentin Tarantino.
Learn why the writer-director behind The Hateful Eight doesn’t permit cellular telephones on his sets after the jump.

Since Disney’s adaptation of John Carter of Mars didn’t work out too well, maybe Warner Bros. will have more luck updating a more grounded novel from Edgar Rice Burroughs in The Legend of Tarzan.
True Blood and The East star Alexander Skarsgård takes the title role of the man who was raised in the jungle by a family of apes. However, this approach to Tarzan finds the character already removed from the jungles of Africa, living with his wife Jane (Margot Robbie) far away from his former home. But then some kind of scheme brings him back to the jungle, where his enemies will learn how he survived in the wild for so long. Read More »

Christoph Waltz seemed to come out of nowhere years ago when Quentin Tarantino cast him in the 2009 release Inglorious Basterds, though the actor had actually been working for many years prior to that. Since then, however, Waltz has won two Oscars (for Basterds, and for Django Unchained) and established himself as a major player in both studio and indie films. Now he’s going to direct, and for his first film Waltz is taking on a strange true crime story. Read More »

Just days after we heard Christoph Waltz was joining Spectre, rumors started swirling that he’d play classic Bond villain Blofeld. Of course, he quickly denied those stories, and now he’s denying them again. According to him, those claims are “absolutely untrue.”
But… are they? The same story that originated the Blofeld rumor also stated that Waltz’s character would be named (initially, at least) Franz Oberhauser. And that part has been 100% confirmed. More on the Christoph Waltz Blofeld rumors after the jump. Read More »
