The quality of Daniel Craig’s James Bond movies has varied dramatically since his stellar debut in Casino Royale, wavering with Quantum of Solace, recovering with Skyfall, and then dropping off the deep end with Spectre, probably the worst entry of his tenure.

Moneypenny has another fan in the form of Harris’s Moonlight director Barry Jenkins, because according to recent interviews from Harris, Jenkins actually pitched a Moneypenny movie to Barbara Broccoli at Eon Productions – but Broccoli “wasn’t so down for it.” Read Harris’s quotes below. Read More »

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 »
