Fall 2015 Movie Preview

We’re well past the midpoint of the year, and we’ve already delivered our list of the Top 10 Films of 2015 So Far. And as we reach the end of the summer, the movie business starts slowing down, giving a little calm before the storm that is awards season. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t still tons of movies to look forward to before the end of the year.

That’s why we’ve collected a list of 30 Movies to Be Excited for Before the End of 2015. And since there are so many great movies coming up before the end of the year, this is the Blockbuster and Studio Edition of the list, and next week we’ll deliver a completely different list for independent movies. But until then, here’s a list of movies we think you won’t want to miss over the next four months. Read More »

David Oyelowo Is the New James Bond (In an Audiobook)

JACK REACHER

David Oyelowo is the new James Bond. As far as picks go, he’s a pretty great one: handsome, dashing, talented, and blessed with the ability to rock the hell out of a midnight blue tuxedo (in glittery fabric, even). However, there’s a catch. Oyelowo isn’t playing 007 onscreen, but rather in an audiobook. More on the David Oyelowo James Bond news after the jump.  Read More »

Daniel Craig - New James Bond movie Casino Royale

007’s next jetsetting adventure could bring him all the way to Broadway. A James Bond musical is reportedly in the works, and could hit the stage as early as 2017. The show will bring back classic villains and introduce some new ones, as well as a new Bond girl. More details on the James Bond musical after the jump.  Read More »

1985 summer movies

July 4th weekend is always a bankable one at the box office. There’s always some kind of major release hitting the big screen to get people as they enjoy some time off for Independence Day, and people flock to theaters to see stuff they missed from the previous weeks or just to see something again with their friends and family.

This past weekend, Jurassic World dominated the box office for a fourth weekend in a row, edging out Pixar’s Inside Out again and keeping Magic Mike XXL and Terminator: Genisys down as well. Those are some big offerings, but back in the summer of 1985, the line-up of movies available in theaters, according to a newspaper clipping, was both impressive and much different as far as the variety of offerings.

Who Are the Top 15 Best Movie Spies?

Best Movie Spies

This weekend Melissa McCarthy enters secret agent territory as the unlikely hero Susan Cooper in the action comedy Spy. And while the trailers seem to indicate that she’s probably not the best woman for the job, she did get us thinking about the best spies in the business.

There have been plenty of spies on the big screen, from James Bond to Jason Bourne, and I decided to count down the Top 15 Best Movie Spies that we’ve seen throughout the years. However, you won’t find the likes of real-life spies whose life stories have been adapted for film. Instead, this is a collection of fictional spies from the movies. So with that out of the way, let’s count down the Top 15 Movies spies after the jump. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

James Bond distribution rights

Spectre comes to theaters in November, and that new on-screen chapter in the James Bond story will lead to big developments off-screen. The pact between Sony and MGM that has led to Sony’s distribution of the set of Bond films that began with Casino Royale expires after Spectre. That means every studio in Hollywood is going to be at MGM and EON’s door.

Sony will compete for a new distribution package, but there’s already talk of Warner Bros. as a potential new Bond partner. Oddly, in comments made during CinemaCon, new Sony chief Tom Rothman doesn’t even seem all that perturbed by that idea. Read More »

Idris Elba for Smartwater

Idris Elba has long been a fan-favorite pick to play the next James Bond, whenever Daniel Craig decides to hand over the mantle. But one of the more interesting reveals from the Sony hack was that fans weren’t alone in their support of Elba. Sony Pictures chief Amy Pascal reportedly wanted Elba for Bond as well.

Now the actor has weighed in with his two cents on the matter. Hit the jump to see the Idris Elba Bond rumors response. Read More »

History of Spectre

The organization SPECTRE — the all-caps acronym stands for (SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion) — has been a thorn in the side of James Bond ever since his first screen adventure in Dr. No. The group will return in the 24th Bond film, Spectre, which just started shooting in the past week, and which will be released in fall 2015. If you haven’t seen all of the original Bond films that featured the group, or if they’re hazy memories from your past, check out this history of Spectre compiled into one short video. It’s basically like a trailer for a SPECTRE film.

You’ll see Ernst Stavro Blofeld, played by a variety of actors, and sometimes just as disembodied hands petting a cat. You’ll see technology and violence and James Bond remaining cool under fire, in footage from a variety of movies. Read More »
