While promoting Spectre, Daniel Craig has been asked so much about whether or not he will play James Bond again that he rather slit his wrists than think of the possibility. In a recent interview with Time Out London, Craig was asked yet again if he’ll return to 007.
There’s been a whole lot of speculation and fantasy-casting when it comes to the future of the James Bond franchise. And while Daniel Craig is contracted for one more film after Spectre, the actor has been a little wishy-washy about whether or not he’ll actually follow through with another 007 outing. Rest easy, Bond fans, because Craig is definitely coming back for one more.
Sony debuted the final trailer for Spectre on Thursday, which features a handful of footage from the previous trailers, but includes some new action sequences and a better look at Christoph Waltz outside of the shadows.
There are a few immutable constants in this world that we look to as reminders of the natural order of all living things. The sun rises in the east. The Earth travels around the sun. James Bond drinks martinis, “shaken, not stirred.”
The wait is over! After it was officially announced a few weeks ago that Sam Smith would be singing the official James Bond theme for Spectre, today you can download the full track, “Writing’s on the Wall.” Before you buy it though, you can listen to...
Almost as soon as Oscar-winning actor Christoph Waltz was attached to star in Spectre, the rumors began that he would be playing legendary James Bond villain Ernst Blofeld. Yet, when the cast was officially announced (via a press conference in London), Waltz was announced as playing “Franz Oberhauser”. In the time since, 007 fans have debated whether this is all an elaborate ruse (not unlike the Benedict Cumberbatch / John Harrison / Khan Star Trek Into Darkness debacle), or whether Waltz really and truly is not playing Blofeld. Now, Spectre director Sam Mendes has finally chimed in to try and clear things up.
Regal Cinemas is betting big on Spectre being a good movie. More specifically, they are betting that you, being the devoted James Bond fan that you are, will think Spectre is a good movie. Scratch that. They are betting on you thinking Spectre is a great movie, a movie worth seeing over and over and over again while it’s in theaters. That’s why they’re offering you the chance to buy an unlimited pass that will allow you see the 24th 007 adventure as many times as you’d like.
The newest TV spot for Spectre is short and sweet and straight to the point, but it does offer a little bit of new footage for fans clamoring to see more of the 24th James Bond film before it hits theaters. There’s some additional flashes of action, as well as looks at new characters played by Lea Seydoux and Christoph Waltz, the latter of whom is reportedly playing a new iteration of classic Bond foil Blofeld.
The identity of the performer chosen to sing the new James Bond theme song is almost always as exciting as the buildup to the release of the film itself — even British bookies have placed odds on which pop star would sing the theme for Spectre, with Sam Smith coming in as the heavy favorite. Smith has previously denied his involvement and feigned obliviousness, but it looks like the singer / songwriter has recorded the new Bond theme after all.
Luxury car brand Aston Martin has enjoyed a nice relationship with the James Bond franchise, with the car company hand-building 10 of their DB10 models for 007 to use in Spectre. And while you won’t be able to get your hands on the DB10, Aston Martin is releasing a limited edition DB9 series — and you can own one if you have $250,000 just laying around. Oh, you don’t? I thought everyone did.
