After a holiday break, Sam Mendes is back at work on the 24th James Bond film, Spectre. The film returns Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Rory Kinneear, and Ben Whishaw while adding Christoph Waltz, Andrew Scott, Dave Bautista, Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux to the cast. It opens November 6, so there’s a lot of work to do in the next few months.
Unfortunately, none of those cast members are in this new photo.
Instead, we get to once again see the film’s only officially revealed on-set star, the camera slate, which is now seen in a very evocative snow-covered locale. See the new Spectre set photo below. Read More »

Normally we’d have a large measure of sympathy for anyone who had to take over a job following Roger Deakins. And since Deakins isn’t shooting the new Bond film, someone has to step into his shoes. But the person to take over the job shooting Bond 24 is Hoyte van Hoytema, who did such a tremendous job with Her, and then shot Interstellar for Christopher Nolan. So things are probably going to work out just fine. There’s another good detail in the Hoyte Van Hoytema Bond 24 news, which you can find below. Read More »

That approach to the series changed fairly quickly, however, and Mendes was soon signed to make the follow-up, the currently-untitled Bond 24. That Bond movie should shoot later this year for a 2015 release, but we still know little about it.
