If ever there was a role that an actor was born to play, it’s likely Christoph Waltz as a Bond villain. He’s got the smarm, he’s got the gravity, and he’s definitely got the humor to cut the tension. He’s…perfect. So we can all get a little excited that, according to the Daily Mail, Waltz has all but signed on to play a villain who is a “complex” character.

Eh, normally I’m all for complex villains, but this is a Bond film with Christoph Waltz. Let’s not reinvent the wheel. I want an over the top caricature, and I want it…soon.

The next Bond is the untitled Bond 24, and was originally slated to have Chiwetel Ejiofor in it, but he dropped out as the villain, leaving this opportunity for Waltz. Daniel Craig will return as our dark hero.

The 24th James Bond Movie Begins Filming Dec. 6th, And We’ve Got Some Proposed Titles. http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-24th-james-bond-movie-begins-filming-dec-6th-and-weve-got-some-proposed-titles/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-24th-james-bond-movie-begins-filming-dec-6th-and-weve-got-some-proposed-titles/#comments Mon, 15 Sep 2014 18:58:23 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=265051 It will see a November 6th, 2015 release in the States.

James Bond, despite being characterized as one of the more timeless film franchises, has had to fight for relevance in recent years. It had been accused of being stale, of being too self-aware, and of not being self-aware enough. However, those criticisms were largely silenced thanks to the critical and commercial success of Skyfall.

Because of that success, we’re seeing director Sam Mendes return to helm the next, unnamed, 24th Bond film on December 6th. That’s pretty much all we know at the moment, but I’m sure we’ll get word on all sorts of guest stars and musical acts in the mix for the project over the next year. And, of course, we’ll have Daniel Craig returning as the darkest bond ever.

In anticipation, we’ve got some working titles we’d like to propose:

  • FallKill
  • Harbinger of Solitudanul Solace
  • Tomorrow Can’t Come Soon Enough
  • CasinoCasinoCasinoBlackjack
  • Ocean of Calamities
Eh, not our best work, but we’ll share the good ones when they pay us.

Much like all recent spy movies, the trailer for Sam Mende’s Skyfall opens with MI6 losing sensitive information about their embedded agents, and the consequent fallout those agents experience when telemarketers begin to call their cells during dinner. Then James Bond pretends to be dead. That’s one way to shake those telemarketers.

Most thrilling about this trailer, besides the action and the women is Javier Bardem‘s hair. The man is a treasure when it comes to absense of silly wig vanity. He’s right up their with Samuel L. Jackson and those Kitty Wigs cats.

Daniel Craig’s tenure as James Bond has already proven to be the antithesis of the Timothy Dalton years, but if the first teaser for Skyfall is to be trusted, it raises the stakes of “darkest Bond ever” even further.

We don’t glean much in the way of plot points from the video, but we get plenty of haunting drums, a la Christopher Nolan. And, yes, at the :56 mark, we see a man falling through the sky. A “Skyfall,” if you will.

Going on this, I would say the film looks promising, though would it kill Daniel Craig to smile a little?

Daniel Craig In Talks For 5 More ‘Bond’ Films After ‘Skyfall’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/daniel-craig-in-talks-for-5-more-bond-films-after-skyfall/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/daniel-craig-in-talks-for-5-more-bond-films-after-skyfall/#comments Mon, 19 Dec 2011 19:43:26 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=240117 Anyone want to see the "dark and brooding" Bond for 15 more years? Yeah, me neither.

The post Daniel Craig In Talks For 5 More ‘Bond’ Films After ‘Skyfall’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Regardless of how you feel about Daniel Craig, can we all agree that the fact that he’s considering signing on for eight James Bond films is a little much? People UK has reported that he’s in talk to carry on the franchise for five more films (six if you count the upcoming Skyfall).

I’m lukewarm to Craig as Bond and the Bond franchise in general. In fact, the only thing that really gets me into the theater to see a Bond film is the debut of a new actor as James Bond, which this news would preclude for quite some time. In fact, I don’t really know who would benefit from having Craig play Bond for 15 more years or so. Yuck.

The public would get tired of him (Brosnan only did three, and he felt like he owned the James Bond role for twenty years), Craig would have to sacrifice some far more prestigious roles, and the studio wouldn’t get the boost of reinvigorating the franchise with someone like Michael Fassbender (good), or Idris Elba (really, really good).

I could understand someone like Timothy Dalton, an actor who really made his name with Bond wanting to go down in the annals of history as “eight-time James Bond portrayer,” but Craig has so much else going for him, I have difficulty thinking that he’d take this, even with the bags of money they must be offering.

Don’t do it, Daniel!

The post Daniel Craig Promises ‘Skyfall’ Won’t Suck Like ‘Quantum Of Solace’ Did appeared first on Screen Junkies.

I like Daniel Craig. He’s always really open with the press, isn’t above an occasional photobomb, and seems to have the best interest of his fans at heart. So when he goes on the record to say that Skyfall will be better than the last James Bond film, I’m inclined to believe him, rather than dismiss it as hype to sell tickets.

While talking with Time Out, Craig frankly addressed the fact that Quantum of Solace was doo-doo.

“On Quantum, we were fucked. We had the bare bones of a script and then there was the strike and there was nothing we could do. We couldn’t employ a writer to finish it. You swear you’ll never get involved with shit like that, and then it happens!” Craig even reveals that he ended up writing some of the scenes himself, in collaboration with director Marc Forster. “And a writer I am not…”

Take notes, Michael Bay.

“ I really think this one is better even than Casino Royale“, Craig enthuses. “[Director] Sam Mendes has lived with Bond all his life, and he grew up with Bond in the same way I did. We have exactly the same reference points, we both like the same Bond movies, and we both like the same bits in the same Bond movies we like. We sat down and we just rabbited for hours about Live And Let Die or From Russia With Love, and talked about little scenes that we knew from them. That’s how we started talking about it. That’s what we tried to instill in the script. He’s been working his arse off to tie all these things together so they make sense… in a Bond way!”

You can’t get mad at a guy for wanting to go the extra mile to ensure that his movie about a missile-defusing pussy-crusher makes sense. Make us proud, good sir. (Empire)

The long will he, won’t he tease is over. Javier Bardem has finally confirmed that he will in fact play the villain in the 23rd James Bond film. Rumored to be called Skyfall,  Bardem did not share much info but let’s just assume it’s about satellites or something. He tells Nightline’s Christine Amanpour:

That old so-and-so David Fincher has done it again. Here’s our first in-depth look at the plot of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, which is good if you are not one of the millions reading the Steig Larsson novel on their commute to work last year.

The story begins with Rooney Mara‘s Lisbeth investigating Daniel Craig‘s journalist Mikael for a group of employers who want to hire him to investigate a 40-year old cold case. Mikael in turn hires Lisbeth to aid him in his investigation. Without having read the story, I’d say that Christopher Plummer totally did it. Or Warlock. I’ve never trusted either of those guys.

All in all, it’s an exciting trailer that builds the mystery while introducing the characters without slowing down the action. Mara and Craig have an undeniable chemistry. I’m really looking forward to when this film gets adapted into a weekly procedural on ABC starring Ron Eldard and Joanna Garcia.

The post Review: Cowboys & Aliens appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Cowboys & Aliens has been the summer movie I was most excited about just because of the high concept. I was a little worried that it wouldn’t be enough western but I’m happy to report it is a full on western, even when the aliens show up.

The introduction of Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig) is all silent behavior, so you get a sense of who this guy is visually. Jake suits up as a cowboy in the cold open, and Craig makes a great man with no name. It’s not that different from his rough and tumble James Bond, but I want to see that guy in the old west too.

Get The Alien Cribs Tour In 'Cowboys & Aliens' Trailer

Jake shakes up the town just like any western hero would. Percy Dolarhyde (Paul Dano) is used to making trouble and endangering civilians with no one standing up to him. Jake humiliates Percy in a badass way. Doc (Sam Rockwell) is just a saloon owner with a dream, Meacham (Clancy Brown) is the preacher who still knows he needs a gun and Sheriff Taggart (Keith Carradine) sees outlaws all the time and recognizes how flexible the law is in the old west. Meanwhile Jake keeps beating dudes up.

Woodrow Dolaryde (Harrison Ford) has a stronghold on the town and Ford is having fun scowling it up. Unfortunately, once the town goes looking for the aliens, Mr. Dolaryde is just along for the ride. He gets some good character moments, especially with he and Jake sizing each other up, but it’s not a fully developed part. Ella (Olivia Wilde) is saddled with all the exposition, and I’ll embrace that pun in all its glory but I would have said the same thing if she were in any genre explaining all the backstory.

7 photosOlivia Wilde

Perhaps some of the bad buzz has come from people’s expectations of western. This isn’t the Oscar-y western like True Grit or Unforgiven. It’s like the real westerns of old Hollywood and the Italian era, just a great yarn with cool characters. They still run into bandits and natives, build legends like Woodrow’s war history, ride through the plains on horseback and bond over the campfire.

The little bit of sci-fi is still in the western mold. Jake chases after a spaceship like it’s a runaway stagecoach. In the climactic battle, Nat Colorado (Adam Beach) lassos an alien like cattle. The aliens resemble a combination of Giger, Predator and Blade 2. They look good, although I forgot about their mouth arms until they use them again in the end.

The McGuffin on Jake’s wrist still rubs me the wrong way. It’s a totally artificial mystery. It’s like oh, look, what is this crazy object on his wrist? It exists only to reveal backstory later in the film, and to make it easier for Jake to shoot down alien ships. Other characters come up with creative ways to use their bare bones western tools to fight aliens, but the script hinges a mystery on this artificial device

For me, Cowboys & Aliens is what I wanted in a summer movie. It’s a grand, fantastic world full of big adventure and high concept. Probably not a memorable classic but damn good fun. I hope there’s a porno parody of it. They can call it Reverse Cowgirl & Aliens.

Jim Sheridan is back on the scene with Dream House, another odd entry to his list of latter films. After his Oscar nominated In America, Sheridan naturally went off and made a movie starring 50 Cent. He then directed Brothers, which wasn’t so much bad as it was an unnecessary remake.

Now comes Dream House, a psychological thriller starring Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz that far too closely resembles Shutter Island. A man moves into a home with his wife and kids only to discover that the previous residents were murdered there. Instead of first bitching out the real estate agent for not utilizing full disclosure, he delves head first into a tangled mystery that brings his sanity into question. If you need other questions answered, just watch the trailer. It pretty much gives away everything.

A new trailer for Cowboys & Aliens doesn’t quite reveal the alien invaders responsible for blowing up the Old West, but it does show us where they like to kick it. Here we see a brief glimpse of Cowboy Daniel Craig and friends in the alien ship, skulking around without knocking. Gross. I hope they don’t find Mom and Dad Alien showering together. That could be scarring for life.

It also looks like Cowboy Daniel Craig blows up the alien’s crib. Man, he’s a crappier house-guest than Dupree.

It doesn’t show aliens (save for a hand) but it does show a bunch of other new footage. There’s a lot to see at the box office this summer but this still looks like one of the standouts.

Ten years ago when she starred in 28 Days Later, Naomie Harris was poised to become a breakout star. And then she didn’t. But now she might.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean hag has been offered an opportunity to shed her rotted teeth and dreadlocks and appear as a Bond Girl in Bond 23. Harris confirmed to Shadow and Act that she was indeed offered a role, though she didn’t specify which it would be. Some outlets report she’ll play Bond’s sexy sidekick but we’re not sure if that means she’ll be the female lead or just one of the many that the lothario spy will squirm around on top of while crying. Frieda Pinto, Olivia Wilde, and Megan Fox have also been rumored to be joining the project in the past few years. Alas, only one can take the role. I think a tickle-fight is the only fair way to decide. I’ll warm my fingers.

You’ll recall that one of David Fincher‘s visions for the The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo promotional campaign was a poster featuring (heh) titular lead Rooney Mara showing a little more than just a dragon tattoo. Well, it looks like Fincher has gotten his wish, in the form of barely perceptible frontal nudity in a new poster. A European poster, that is. I assume the version displayed in the jolly USA will feature a little bit more coverage.

Anyway, if you’re not afraid of a little microscopic nudity or gruff Daniel Craig, you can see the full version below. If you are afraid of those things, maybe consider a therapist. Your life doesn’t have to be like this. (Championship Celluloid)

Remember that trailer for David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo that’s supposed to hit the internet this Thursday? Well, in an instance of real-life intrigue (as opposed to the more fictional, rape-y kind), the trailer has leaked a few days early. This is the red-band version though, so don’t watch it at work if you’re one of those dopes who works on Saturdays (like me). Anyway, here it is – and if it gets yanked by the Powers That Be it’ll probably be replaced soon by a better, non-bootleg quality version. Enjoy!

David Fincher’s upcoming The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo starring Rooney Mara, Daniel Craig, and Stellan Skarsgard is one of the most anticipated movies of the year.

There’s hope though, since a green-band trailer is supposed to hit the internet on Thursday, June 2nd and be in theaters this weekend. Stay tuned! (Deadline)

In the new TV spot for Cowboys & Aliens, Daniel Craig wakes up in the desert with a prop from Iron Man strapped to his wrist and no recollection how he or it got there. Sounds like my old enemy Corn Whiskey to me.

We also catch a glimpse of an alien this time around. It’s what you’d expect. We only catch a gnarled, boney Joan Rivers hand with reptilian skin gripping a rock while it lifts itself out of frame. It’s the only confirmation that we need that there are actually aliens in this movie. Up until this point, I was sure that jet from Stealth was up to its old tricks.

Aliens and Cowboys are totally BFFs.

Pirates vs. Ninjas is old news. Monsters got to take on Aliens, so now it’s Cowboys‘ turn. Next in line is Leprechaun Clowns. I think Leprechaun Clowns vs. Aliens is looking for a director right now, actually.

Above is the new trailer for Jon Favreau‘s Cowboys & Aliens, starring Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde and Harrison Ford. I like this new trailer. It’s got thrills, chills, cowpokes, alien folks. It gives you just enough to understand the complex, gun-based relationship between cattle rustlers and space invaders.

Based on a graphic novel – because of course it was – by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, the film takes place in 1873, in the desert town of Absolution. Those old west towns have the friendliest names. A criminal with no memory of his past (Craig) must team up with the town sheriff (Ford) to stop aliens from destroying everyone. Olivia Wilde plays a girl character. It has a couple producers you probably haven’t heard of, like Brian GrazerRon Howard and Steven Spielberg.

The shoot-out comes to theaters July 29, 2011.

Cowboys And Aliens

As far as I was concerned, Jon Favreau just showed some footage of a cool new western he made. I was looking at all the western parts and what impressed me were the silent exploration and the subtle score.

The western town looks like a Leone/Eastwood movie, where it’s just past the studio backlot era and it looks like a real place people live. Those figures of Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig posing side by side in a widescreen frame are impressive, and Lonergan (Craig) sneaking around town to patch up his side wound is good visual storytelling.

Dolarhyde (Ford) gets a dramatic reveal, with the camera pushing in from behind as he turns around, looking up from under a hat. His issue is his cattle have been blown up, and it’s still approached like a rancher dealing with a real problem. Who would assume aliens? He drags the herder behind a horse because he assumes he’s lying about this bright light that zaps the cows (of course we see it in a flashback).

We saw a substantial alien attack. The ships za the town and snatch up some locals with their long tentacles, but Lonergan is able to blast one out of the sky with a device attached to his wrist. Lonergan establishes that he has no memory before waking up with it attached to his wrist.

After that first attack, the cowboys examine the downed ship at night. The townies are screaming about their captured family members but Dolarhyde shuts them up. A spark startles him though and he fires a round at the ship. That’s a joke, because it just clanks on the metal.

In quicker clips we saw Dolarhyde butt Lonergan with his rifle and Lonergan returned with a sock to Dolarhyde’s jaw. Alien ships fly over the stony canyons. There’s a big battlefield with horsemen galloping below the flying ships.

Jon Favreau said that the quick shot of an alien growling at a cowboy is exclusive to WonderCon, and he’s not going to show it any marketing before the movie comes out. That’s a great plan to keep the aliens a mystery, but I’m not sure the design is so original it’ll surprise anyone. I mean, a hulking mass of dark tissue with lots of pointy teeth kinda looks the same to me.

I don’t mind it. The cool part will be how the old west deals with this creature. CGI just looks like CGI, at least from a quick glimpse, so it seems to me like a familiar sort of creature to today’s audiences.

The Immortals

Immortals will benefit from the public’s interest in getting to know who this guy playing Superman is. Henry Cavill plays an action hero on Greek myth before he become The Man of Steel. At WonderCon, they showed a teaser trailer for Immortals.

I remember the teaser for 300 shown at Comic-Con and this is pretty much the same deal. There are a few memorable money shots and some flashes of setting to establish the tone. Only 300 was the first time we’d seen anything like that. Immortals REALLY looks like 300.

I’ll give Tarsem Singh credit that there’s an overall aesthetic plan. They picked out some shots of armies lining up and slow motion kill shots. It’s got that artificial golden light added in post production, set atop cliffs with fortified castle walls, so it all looks like a moving graphic novel.

Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) has a harem, an arsenal and armory. Theseus (Cavill) seems to be the only man equipped to lead armies, although Zeus (Luke Evans) is on his side so that helps. Theseus finds his bow and it seems to get a magic spark. At the end of the teaser he shoots four arrows in quick succession and they fly with zinging sounds and glowing charges of light.

One totally Tarsem shot is what looks like a grounds-eye-view of a huge battle. You see all the soldiers as if they’re standing on glass. Maybe they were supposed to be flying through the air but I got the impression they were on the ground battling hand to hand, only we got an omniscient perspective, but from below instead of above.

Theseus gives a speech to motivate his troops and he even says, “Today we fight for honor.” Tonight we dine in hell, the glory of Sparta, blah blah blah. 300 had at least three glory speeches so if Immortal talks about honor four times I guess it wins.

Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night

Only two scenes screened for Dylan Dog: Dead of Night’s WonderCon footage, but that might be good. The two clips made the film look very entertaining, didn’t overdo it or give away too much.

Both scenes focused on Marcus (Sam Huntington) and all his zombie powers. In the first clip, Dylan (Brandon Routh) is in the supermarket, pushing Marcus around in a shopping cart. Marcus actually wakes up and notices the smell of his own rotting corpse. He’s also got a tattooed left arm of a different ethnicity he doesn’t recognize. It had to be replaced and they didn’t have any more Caucasian arms.

So Dylan explains that they’re picking up floor cleaner for soap, bleach for his teeth and other ways of keeping zombies fresh. Marcus tries to eat some food left on a counter for samples, but ends up vomiting it into a plastic bag (zombies can’t eat food like living people do.) The deadpan timing with which Dylan hands him the bag shows that they’re onto something here.

The second scene is lit by candlelight, or Dylan’s lighter to be accurate. He and Marcus are locked in a crypt. Marcus really freaks out about it, and a scene that could be annoying is actually endearing. Marcus tries his cell phone in a panic.

It turns out, as Dylan explains, that zombies are world class diggers. Marcus has the power to dig them out. Marcus protests no, no, no, no, no, I lost count of how many “no”s he says. Huntington made it sound like character, not schtick.

Closing with a brief montage, there were monsters and a buff shirtless Routh. Dylan Dog looks like a legitimate Hollywood movie considering its underground indie pedigree. Monster makeup is a plus for me and I like the irreverence towards living with a monstrous condition.

Director David Fincher‘s upcoming The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is continuing to announce new cast members, even though it’s set to premiere at the end of 2011. The next tough-to-pronounce name to be revealed is former “ER” star Goran Visnjic, who will be playing “Dragan Armansky, the CEO of Milton Security that employs the young hacker Lisbeth Salander, and who becomes a father figure to the disturbed girl.” He’s signed on to do all three movies too, which is something that a lot of the actors in the movie are doing. I think this is good news, since it always bothers me when characters in sequels are played by different actors. Although I don’t know if I’d notice in this particular case (just kidding, I’m sure he’s great). He’s joining up with a giant cast, which includes Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig. (via The Playlist)

Don’t rule out a David Fincher-directed Piranha 3D sequel. The acclaimed director has revealed himself as a man after our own hearts with his radical approach to marketing The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Taking a page from Joe Francis’s book, Fincher presented his proposed one-sheet to the Hollywood Reporter. “It shows actor Daniel Craig half-hidden behind co-star Rooney Mara, who’s looking directly into the camera. Her hair is spiky, her face pierced with rings, her body covered in tattoos. It’s black and white and beautiful, but there’s no way in hell any studio will ever let Fincher use it, as he knows. Because Mara is naked from the waist up.”

The article also points out that Fincher keeps a rifle on his desk as “a reminder of the consequences.” The MPAA had better keep this in mind before they ask him to airbrush a bra onto her.

Prepare yourselves to see Javier Bardem with a really cool scar or a cat on his lap or something. The Biutiful Oscar nominee has been offered a role opposite Daniel Craig in Bond 23.

Bardem’s a busy guy. Last week he got nommed, ruined Penelope Cruz‘s vagina, and was offered the lead in The Dark Tower. There aren’t any details available about which character Bardem would play, but it’s likely he’ll play the lead villain considering James Bond isn’t really the type for bromance. The film is scheduled to shoot this fall with a planned release in November 2012.

Whether this gig will effect his involvement in The Dark Tower (and vice versa) remain unknown. I recommend just mashing up the two projects and make Roland Deschain into Bond’s nemesis this time around. It would save film and time and it’s not like MGM is in a position to say no. (Deadline)

What do the films The Change-Up, Dream House, and Ceremony have in common? Absolutely nothing, other than they all released stills today that are below for your viewing pleasure.

The 1980′s were clearly the heyday of mind-body transfer movies. Fred Savage and Judge Reinhold switched it up in Vice Versa, Kirk Cameron and Dudley Moore did it with Like Father, Like Son, then there was 18 Again! starring George Burns and some other dude. I never saw that one. The 90′s offered a death rattle in the way of a Freaky Friday remake, but it seemed clear that the concept was destined to die off. But Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds said “not on our watch,” and came to our rescue with The Change-Up (via Playlist), in which an uptight guy and his slacker friend switch bodies. Shocked? Ryan Reynolds sure is:

Then we’ve got Dream House starring Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig, in which a family moves into a new home, only to find that the previous inhabitants were murdered, possibly at the hands of the husband/father. They discover that they are doomed to repeat the fate of the family before them, which makes Mr. Craig register an expression that can best be described as “concern.” (Playlist)

Finally, we’ve got Ceremony which follows a young man (Michael Angarano) who crashes the wedding of a character played by Uma Thurman. This act makes the boy very relatable, as most anyone could develop an infatuation with the Thurmanator. In an interesting wrinkle that could only occur during our technological renaissance, Ceremony is hitting VOD on March 4th and theaters April 8th. (Playlist)

Good news! James Bond still has a stern boss!! Husky-eyed, aristotle, British old lady, Dame Judi Dench will once again reprise the role of M in Sam Mendes‘s take on the material. Originally joining the franchise along with Pierce Brosnan with GoldenEye, Bond 23 will mark her seventh performance as the character. M is Bond’s commanding officer within British Intelligence. She knows he’s always the man for the job, even if she doesn’t approve of his actions.

When approached for the role, Dench probably responded, “Of course, dear child. Why the heavens wouldn’t I? I did appear in The Chronicles Of Riddick after all.” (MI6)

The on-again, off-again 23rd installment of the James Bond series is officially on with Sam Mendes directing. Variety reports that MGM has announced a release date of November 9, 2012 for Daniel Craig to return as the darker, more violent Bond than we have seen from the likes of that wimp George Lazenby. Earlier this week, it was looking uncertain that MGM would make their target date, but today’s release has the studio looking towards their planned date. Production is expected to start late this year, though no filming locations have been disclosed.

This turnaround is something of a surprise, considering that producer Michael G. Wilson had expressed a number of concerns regarding “a lot of ideas floating around” with the script from Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan. Apparently, MGM found a way to put those concerns to rest, probably because they really, really need the revenue that their Bond sugar daddy can provide.

With that in mind, it’s probably no surprise that further details aren’t available, as this has every symptom of a “shoot first, ask questions later,” decision to get production rolling, then figure out those pesky script and logistical issues on the fly. Fortunately, they have two years to figure those issues out, but still, a suspect start for the next episode in the widely-loved series.

Daniel Craig plays a stranger who finds himself in the small town of Absolution with a fancy bracelet around his wrist and no recollection of how it got there. Harrison Ford plays Colonel Dolarhyde (Colonel Assmoney?), whose furrowed brow and gravely voice suggests he doesn’t take kindly to strangers. Olivia Wilde acts peculiar and looks hot. Then aliens show up for some reason and Craig in the town‘s only hope. Oooooh, THAT’S what the bracelet is for! Thought it just improved his golf swing.

James Bond has met his match — Super Glue.

MGM recently filed for bankruptcy, and you know what that means. It’s time for them to make movies! Don’t ask me how the government works because I cannot enlighten you. The Hobbit is finally scheduled to begin filming in February, and now it looks like MGM’s other huge franchise, the James Bond series, is picking up steam maybe but who the hell knows for sure.

The studio aims to have the next Bond film in theaters November 2012, though a few minor problems lay in the project’s path. MGM needs a partner with the ever important financial means to fund the movie. Also, it’s not known if Daniel Craig has time in his schedule, or if currently-signed-on-director Sam Mendes wants to deal with this back and forth B.S. anymore. The only thing we know for certain is, MGM needs to get a second job cleaning office buildings at night to put food on the lion’s table. (ThePlaylist)
