Following up the new images released earlier today, here’s a new Spectre video blog in which director Sam Mendes explains a lot about what’s going on with James Bond in this 24th film in the (official) series… without actually explaining much at all. But did you think he was just going to lay out the entire plot now, months before the film hits theaters? Not likely. But he does drop a few hints, so check out the video below. Read More »

We’ve already seen 007’s slick all-black getup from the new Bond film, Spectre, and now we have a first look at some of the characters that’ll cross his path. New pictures reveal Dave Bautista as henchman Mr. Hinx (who, unlike Drax the Destroyer, understands what a metaphor is) and Léa Seydoux as not-quite-Bond-girl Dr. Madeleine Swann.
Get to know the new characters with a fresh batch of Spectre images after the jump.

The globe-trotting shoot for the 24th James Bond movie, Spectre, continues. Director Sam Mendes is currently in Rome for a five week shoot, and to mark the occasion several photos have been shot featuring stars Daniel Craig and Monica Bellucci. See those below, as well as read some details of what exactly is happening during the Spectre Rome filming. Read More »
The first Spectre footage is now online — that is, the first behind the scenes video from the film itself, instead of just posed photos of the actors on location. It only teases Daniel Craig, who is returning as James Bond, instead focusing mostly on the behind the scenes crew. There is a brand new photo of 007 though, which is teased above.
Sam Mendes directs the follow-up to Skyfall, which opens in November. Watch the Spectre footage and see the first image below. Read More »
Earlier this week, Sam Mendes went back to work on the 24th Bond movie, Spectre. We knew this from a Tweet that showed the camera slate in a mysterious, snowy location. We now know the details on that location: it is Sölden, Austria, where Daniel Craig, Léa Seydoux and Dave Bautista posed for some promotional photos as the film sets up to shoot there. See a few of the Spectre set photos below. Read More »

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 »

Even as I scramble to get in a few more 2014 releases before I close the book on this year, I’m looking forward to 2015. Next year promises to be huge for Hollywood, packed as it is with big-name sequels like Star Wars 7 and Avengers 2. But it also looks like a good time for movie lovers, not just movie studios. A lot of those tentpoles look genuinely good. And a lot of riskier ventures look like they’ll pay off. And that’s not even getting into all of the indie gems buried ahead, waiting for us to discover them at Sundance or Toronto or what have you.
Films from the last category were naturally left off my list, as I can’t get excited for a movie I haven’t heard of yet or know nothing about. But for a list of the films (big and small) that I do know about, and am eagerly looking forward to, join me after the jump. Read More »

For a few weeks now there’s been a rumor floating around that Christoph Waltz would play iconic Bond baddie Blofeld in Bond 24. Even the studio’s confirmation that Waltz would play a character called Oberhauser in Spectre couldn’t quell that talk, since “Oberhauser” seemed like it could be a fake name a la Star Trek Into Darkness‘ “John Harrison.”
But for what it’s worth, Waltz insists the rumors are false, teasing that the truth about Oberhauser is “more interesting.” Of course, going back to the Star Trek Into Darkness example, we heard similar denials from Benedict Cumberbatch before he was exposed as a contractually obligated liar. So should we believe Waltz? Read the Christoph Waltz Blofeld denial after the jump.
