logan lucky easter egg

In addition to making an astonishing variety of high-quality films, director Steven Soderbergh also works in the booze industry. Since 2010, he’s been importing and distributing Singani 63. It’s a distilled Bolivian spirit he went nuts for while shooting Che in South America. The drink has previously appeared in David Fincher’s work, and now it’s in the new Steven Soderbergh film, Logan Lucky.

Below, learn more about the Logan Lucky easter egg.

Daniel Craig Doesn't Need James Bond 2

Earlier this week, Daniel Craig put years of speculation to rest when he announced that he’s officially returning to play James Bond again. But after seeing his delightfully un-Bond-like performance in Steven Soderbergh‘s Southern-fried heist movie Logan Lucky, it’s more clear than ever that Craig doesn’t actually need the Bond franchise. He may be great at playing 007, but he’s a more exciting actor when he’s allowed to cut loose. Read More »

Daniel Craig James Bond returning

Mere hours after Daniel Craig said he still wasn’t sure about returning to the role of James Bond again, the actor announced on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert that he is indeed – yes, officially this time – coming back to play the part again. Two Bond Watch entries in one day? Well, at least we can finally put some of these casting rumors to bed for the next few years.

James Bond 25 Daniel Craig

Earlier this month, we decided that if we’re going to wade into the flood of 007 movie rumors that tends to form in the months and years before a new franchise entry officially gets underway, at least we’ll have some fun with it. So here we are. Bond Watch: Day 15.

But this time, there’s more than just unverified “reports” from British tabloids to discuss. Daniel Craig himself has gone on the record about whether or not he’ll return to the role of the world’s greatest superspy once again, and you can read his latest comments below.

Purity TV Series

On last summer’s Television Critics Association press tour, Showtime President and CEO David Nevins said he expected to film the series Purity in 2017. That would have been in the can before star Daniel Craig would be needed for another James Bond film, should he even decide to make one. Now that Bond 25 is scheduled for release in 2019, with filming next year and Craig expected (though not officially confirmed) to return, Showtime is waiting for him.

Now that we know James Bond 25 is happening and that Daniel Craig is most likely returning for one more go-around as 007, it begins — the endless circulation of James Bond rumors and news that may or may not turn out to be true.

So here we are. Bond Watch: Day 1. James Bond 25 may be titled Shatterhand and see the British super agent face off against a blind supervillain.

Christopher Nolan Directing James Bond

The future of the James Bond franchise is still up in the air. Not only do we not know where the rights for the franchise will end up now that Sony Pictures and MGM are no longer in control of the secret agent on the big screen, but Daniel Craig hasn’t even signed on to return as 007. That has left many fans speculating and wondering what’s in store for James Bond, and that includes thinking about who should get behind the camera for his next mission.

One of the filmmakers who is on almost everyone’s wishlist to direct a James Bond movie is The Dark Knight and Inception director Christopher Nolan. Though you might think Nolan wouldn’t be keen on returning to franchise filmmaking, the director has a soft spot for James Bond and has previously expressed interest in directing one of 007’s movies. However, if Nolan were to direct a James Bond movie, there’s really only one way he could see himself doing it.

Find out below what scenario would need to be happen for us to see Christopher Nolan directing James Bond. Read More »

Logan Lucky Clip - Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig is best known for tracking down international threats as the secret agent James Bond, but late this summer, he’s going to break that image by playing a bleach blonde criminal with a Southern-accent in Steven Soderbergh‘s newest film.

Logan Lucky finds Daniel Craig behind bars as Joe Bang, an expert thief (though I guess he can’t be all that great if he got caught) who the Logan brothers (Channing Tatum and Adam Driver) are keen on recruiting to help them with robbing the Charlotte Motor Speedway during one of the biggest NASCAR races of the season. However, in a new Logan Lucky clip, Craig has to weigh the pros and cons of the heist to make sure it’s worth pulling off first. Read More »

Logan Lucky Trailer

After planning three heists in Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen, the formerly retired Steven Soderbergh is back behind the camera for a new heist, and he’s brought his Magic Mike star with him.

Logan Lucky follows Channing Tatum as Jimmy Logan, a thirtysomething man fired from his job, looking to turn the bad luck of the Logan family around once and for all by pulling off a heist at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. But he’ll need the help of his reluctant, one-armed brother Clyde (Adam Driver) and an incarcerated robbery expert named Joe Bang (Daniel Craig) to help him out. It’s the kind of comedic crime you’d expect from Steven Soderbergh, and a new trailer just arrived with a bunch of new footage.

Logan Lucky trailer

Steven Soderbergh‘s “anti-glam Ocean’s 11” looks, to put it simply, like a blast. Based on the first footage from Logan Lucky, which arrived over the weekend, Daniel Craig‘s performance alone as Joe Bang may be worth the price of admission. We haven’t seen Craig quite like this before, and the same can be said for the rest of the stellar cast in Soderbergh’s blessed return to filmmaking.

Below, watch the Logan Lucky trailer.
