Back in the fall of 2017, when fans were still waiting patiently to see what would happen with the James Bond franchise, Spectre co-star Christoph Waltz seemed rather confident that he would not be returning as Blofeld. The character was revealed as being the mastermind behind the titular international criminal organization, as well as James Bond’s adoptive brother, so it was a real shame that after his survival at the end of the last mission, he wouldn’t be coming back.
But it turns out that’s probably not true. Read More »

James Bond is getting a new sound. Dan Romer, who collaborated with Bond 25 director Cary Fukunaga on Beasts of No Nation and Maniac, has landed the job of composing the Bond 25 soundtrack. The James Bond films primarily feature film scores meant to invoke the iconic work of original composer John Barry, but with Romer on board, there’s a good chance this score will be distinct from the others.

We may not have a title for Bond 25 yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t spy some behind-the-scenes footage of the cast and crew in action. The official Bond site just dropped a minute-long Bond 25 behind-the-scenes video, showcasing director Cary Fukunaga, star Daniel Craig, and more, on set in Jamaica. It’s all cut to a somewhat…odd song choice. But no matter! This is our first Bond 25 footage, and we’ll take it.

Director Danny Boyle famously departed James Bond 25 last year after creative differences with longtime franchise producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. And it sounds like the experience of trying to make that situation work was enough for Danny Boyle to be weary of ever trying to take the helm of an established franchise ever again. Read More »

Double-oh-ouch. A rumor popped-up earlier this month that Bond 25 filming was on hold due to an ankle injury star Daniel Craig suffered on set. Now, we have an update. Craig was indeed injured, and will now undergo knee surgery, but Bond 25 will continue shooting in the meantime.

Daniel Craig doesn’t need Rami Malek to defeat him: just his own body. The Bond 25 production has been temporarily suspended after its star took a tumble in what is just the latest in an icky history of scrapes, knocked-out teeth, and sliced-off fingertips.
