Even though 20th Century Fox isn’t exactly doing The Walt Disney Company any favors with their box office performance this year, Fox Searchlight is still operating like it’s business as usual. The more indie-focused and award-driven arm of Fox has just secured the worldwide distribution rights to Wes Anderson‘s next film, The French Dispatch. This comes after Fox Searchlight released Isle of Dogs, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Fantastic Mr. Fox and The Darjeeling Limited. Learn more below. Read More »
Is Léa Seydoux returning as Dr. Madeleine Swann in Bond 25? That’s the latest rumor, allegedly sourced directly from director Cary Fukunaga. Fukunaga has bee a bit standoffish about confirming who might or might not return for the Bond 25 cast (aside from Daniel Craig, of course), but according to a new report, the director has let slip that Seydoux’s Spectre Bond Girl is coming back for more. If true, this would make her the first Bond Girl to come back for a sequel.

No one’s had better luck than Disney with live-action fairy tales, whose biggest recent hits have included Cinderella and the Sleeping Beauty retelling Maleficent. But they’re not the only ones in the game. Today we’ve got a new trailer for Beauty and the Beast, but it’s not the Disney version coming out next year with Emma Watson and Dan Stevens — no, this is the French one directed by Christophe Gans and starring Léa Seydoux and Vincent Cassel. Watch the Beauty and the Beast trailer below. Read More »

Daniel Craig recently said he’d be happy to play Bond as long as he was “physically able,” but as the Spectre final trailer shows, playacting a globe-trotting super-spy takes quite the toll on a man’s body. The new promo brings the action, from boat chases and explosions to upside-down helicopters and good old-fashioned fistfights. Watch the final Spectre trailer after the jump. Read More »
It may only be a bit of new footage, but the stuff that graces this new Spectre TV spot is a good taste of this fall’s new James Bond film, the 24th in the series. (Not counting the two “unauthorized” films, the 1967 Casino Royale and 1983’s Never Say Never Again.)
A brief TV spot like this might be the best way to get a look at the new movie, as this edit is a blast of action and intriguing looks at the characters, from Daniel Craig as Bond, to Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and the shadowy Christoph Waltz as the villain we all assume to be some version of Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
The film also features Lea Seydoux (seen on the banner image above), Monica Belucci, Dave Bautista, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear and Andrew Scott. Have a look at the brisk new spot after the break. Read More »

Every Bond movie’s gotta have its Bond girls, and Spectre has four of them. Although maybe “Bond girls” isn’t really the correct term here. “I don’t consider myself a Bond girl,” Léa Seydoux said back in February. “I think I’m not really the stereotyped Bond girl.”
In any case, Spectre does have four kickass female characters, played by Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, Naomie Harris, and Stephanie Sigman, and today we have the opportunity to get to know them a little better. Get images and details on Bond’s new female characters after the jump. 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.
