daniel craig hates bond

Daniel Craig is the best actor to play James Bond since Sean Connery, but the two of them have more in common beyond providing audiences with a stellar 007. Connery famously hated playing the world’s most popular movie spy, famously saying “I have always hated that damned James Bond. I’d like to kill him.” Over the past few weeks, it has become obvious that Craig has similar feelings for the character.

Much like how being under a constant spotlight drove Connery to leave the series after You Only Live Twice (a reporter once followed him into the bathroom), the amount of media attention being lavished on Craig during the press rounds for Spectre appear to have completely and thoroughly broken him. “You want James Bond?” he theoretically snarls, his breath smelling of vodka martini, “Let me tell you about this James Bond you love so much!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens might be at the top of everyone’s mind today, but Sony would really appreciate it if you tried to remember it’s not the only new installment of a long-running action franchise coming this fall. There’s also Spectre — the 24th Bond film, the fourth one starring Daniel Craig, and the second one directed by Sam Mendes.

To help remind you of that fact, the studio has just released a whole bunch of new odds and ends from the film. Maybe the most intriguing piece is an in-depth featurette on the music of Spectre, with theme song singer Sam Smith, but there’s also a new TV spot and a new clip for your enjoyment. See it all after the jump.  Read More »

Daniel Craig Has Advice For The Next Bond Actor

Next Bond Actor

Before Daniel Craig even finishes his run as James Bond, fans are already asking, “Who’s going to play the character next?” We may see Craig in the role again after the upcoming Spectre, which comes out next month, but this guessing game isn’t going to end anytime soon. The actor isn’t done with the character yet, but he does have some wise advice for the next Bond actor. Learn what that advice is after the jump.

SPECTRE

Daniel Craig recently said he’d be happy to play Bond as long as he was “physically able,” but as the Spectre final trailer shows, playacting a globe-trotting super-spy takes quite the toll on a man’s body. The new promo brings the action, from boat chases and explosions to upside-down helicopters and good old-fashioned fistfights. Watch the final Spectre trailer after the jump. Read More »

Daniel Craig James Bond future

There’s been a lot of speculation lately about who could take over as the next 007. Could it be fan-favorite Idris Elba? Are the U.K. bookies on to something with Damian Lewis? But in fact, the answer has been right under our noses the whole time: The next James Bond will probably be Daniel Craig.

The actor confirmed he’s in for one more film, and added that he’ll “keep going as long as [he’s] physically able.” Read the Daniel Craig James Bond future comments after the jump.  Read More »

Spectre action scenes

We saw some new Bond action from Spectre via a weird Heineken ad just a few days ago, but here’s a new look at the action in the film without the distracting beer commercial. This new Spectre action scenes video shows off some of the work that went into building the big sequences for Bond’s new film. As is the pleasant trend of late, the focus here is on practical effects rather than on digital work. Have a look at the footage below. Read More »

James Bond Heineken

There is a marked difference between the tough, squinting James Bond played by Daniel Craig and the urbane, quippy Bond incarnated by Roger Moore in seven films released between 1973 and 1985. The two get a little closer, however, in this long James Bond Heineken spot, which vaguely promotes the new film Spectre and definitely promotes the beer.

What you get in this 90-second spot is a boat-based chase scene built out of footage from Spectre with a bunch of ad-agency created footage of a woman whose waterskiing plans are derailed by Bond’s activities, turning her into a not-unwilling beer delivery service.

It’s goofy and cheesy. It’s also kind of fun thanks to the ingenuity of adding the commercial aspects to what I suppose are Spectre shots created for a very different purpose, and also because this is the closest we’re ever likely to see Daniel Craig getting to the winking, colorful Bond of years past.  Read More »

spectre TV spot

It may only be a bit of new footage, but the stuff that graces this new Spectre TV spot is a good taste of this fall’s new James Bond film, the 24th in the series. (Not counting the two “unauthorized” films, the 1967 Casino Royale and 1983’s Never Say Never Again.)

A brief TV spot like this might be the best way to get a look at the new movie, as this edit is a blast of action and intriguing looks at the characters, from Daniel Craig as Bond, to Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and the shadowy Christoph Waltz as the villain we all assume to be some version of Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

The film also features Lea Seydoux (seen on the banner image above), Monica Belucci, Dave Bautista, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear and Andrew Scott. Have a look at the brisk new spot after the break. Read More »
