bond 25

Spectre has literally just opened in theaters and here we are, already talking about the next 007 movie. Then again, this comes with the territory James Bond – when you’ve been around for 53 years and 24 movies, the series itself becomes bigger than a single entry. You have to consider each movie as a part of the whole, and that includes speculating on where the next movie will take us.

Right now, we have no idea where the 25th James Bond movie will be going, who will direct, or even if Daniel Craig will come back for another round with the character. After all, director Sam Mendes sounds like he’s done and producer Michael G. Wilson has confirmed that Craig is not contracted for five films, as previously reported.

Hit the jump for the latest updates about what’s to come for Bond 25.

VOTD: How Many People Has James Bond Killed?

James Bond Kill Count

With six different iterations of 007 spanning 24 films, it should come as no surprise to anyone that James Bond has killed a lot of people. Whether it’s with his trusty Walther PPK of the many gadgets that Q bestows upon him, wherever James Bond goes, death will inevitably follow.

But just how many people has 007 killed? A new James Bond kill count supercut runs through each and every death caused by her majesty’s most trusted secret agent, and not only is it quite a lot, but some of them are downright silly. Read More »

LOL: James Bond Rents a Car from Stephen Colbert

James Bond Stephen Colbert

There are plenty of things that the James Bond franchise is known for, from gadgets to girls. And one of those iconic elements is the legion of fancy cars equipped with all sorts of goodies for 007 to use against his enemies. The only problem is that every single time Bond gets a new car, he ends up absolutely destroying it. And Stephen Colbert has had enough.

On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the talk show host revealed a new “clip” from Spectre, featuring a cameo from Colbert himself. Daniel Craig, as James Bond, is in need of a rental car as he’s desperate to escape from assassins. But before he gets a new vehicle, he has to go through all the red tape and rigmarole of applying to get one. You can guess what happens when Colbert asks for his name. Read More »

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 »

SPECTRE
