It’s a pretty objective assessment that most Americans don’t give half a damn about foreign film. Hardly any imports make it into neighborhood cineplexes, and the films that do score a theatrical run in major cities are lucky if they make enough...

Spectre wasn’t the biggest hit with fans of the James Bond franchise, due largely to the regressive nature of the script. After taking a step forward with Skyfall, director Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig’s 007 took two steps back in the latest outing, and the decision to play coy about the true identity of Christoph Waltz’s villain certainly didn’t do the film any additional favors. Regardless of how you felt about Waltz’s role in Bond’s 24th installment, the actor may very well return for another tussle with the iconic agent.

The Central Board of Film Certification, pretty much India’s equivalent of the Motion Picture Association of America, has ruled that prints of the new James Bond film Spectre to be screened on the subcontinent must cut down on all kisses between Daniel Craig and his romantic opposite Lea Seydoux by 50%, with special attention also being paid to an early scene between 007 and a seductress played by Monica Bellucci.

Spectre and The Peanuts Movie once again topped the weekend box office, but it's not like anyone offered any real competition.

Their victory was always assured.

There is a precise moment when Spectre turns to crap. Before this moment, it is a superbly stylish espionage thriller. After this moment — which can be pinpointed down to the exact shot and lines of dialogue — it falls apart, and its carefully cultivated atmosphere of mystery dissipates like a, well, you know.

Hey, there’s a new James Bond movie. And, to the surprise of exactly no one, it did quite well at the box office. Spectre didn’t quite reach the high bar set by Skyfall, but it still had the second biggest opening in the franchise’s 53-year, 24-film history. It didn’t dominate the box office alone, either. Those too young to enjoy a new 007 movie flocked to The Peanuts Movie, which also had a very strong start.
