Bond 23

Skyfall Teaser Poster and Trailer Released

thumb

  The makers of Spyfall promised it would be one of the year funniest films, perhaps unintentionally so if we are meant to judge by the teaser poster and melancholy trailer just release. Incidentally the teaser trailer at no point told the audience it was an advert for a Bond film. Truth in advertising finally…

Are You Ready for Jimmy Bond Beer?

Facebook

The internet is awash with people outraged by EON selling out Bond to Heineken. So much so EON is dedicating valuable time and energy to try and put down these open acts of rebellion. So far the lukewarm rebuttals have only added to the aggravation, the mainline of defense (or chief excuse) is the ballooning…

Maud Adams Unhappy With 007′S Beer

Maud Adams picture

The Bond Heineken controversy refuses to ‘just be a good boy and die’. While we have not had a lot to say about this issue… yet (problems with consume rental and hiring  a marching band for the press conference), Maud Adams (Octopussy) has weighed in. She like many other fans have a big problem with…

Environmental “Massacare” Committed For Skyfall in Istanbul

Ah, jeez right after we got done defending the Bond team in the last story this story comes up. Team Bond took to chain saws chopping down two old trees meeting with protest from local residents.  No obvious defence suggests itself other than pointing out 100 year old tree can mean just about anything, doesn’t…

Skyfall Stuntman Crashes in Istanbul Bazaar

  Like bulls in a china shop the Skyfall team come to town. While shooting a chase scene for the upcoming Bourne Redux..errr.. we mean Skyfai.l..err.. Spyfall..er..Skyfall, a stuntman riding a motorcycle crashed through the store front of 330 year old shop in Istanbul. The stuntman lost control after swerving to avoid extras on set.…

No Skyfall Novelization

Oh noes! The sky is falling!!! No Skyfall novelization. What has the world come to!?!?!  Not that this should come as much of a surprise, the current neo-Bourne reboot has not had novelizations for either entry. The last Bond movie to have a tiein book was Die Another Day ten years ago. There are various…

SPOILER: A Farewell To? and other possible spoilers

It’s a  M related spoiler which most paying attention to the development of Bond 23 have suspected for a long time. Fist a little bit of casting news The Daily Mail reports the lovely Tonia Sotiropoulou is being touted as a new Bond Girl, she had tired out for the role of Severn, for which…

Another Adele Bond Theme Rumour

Historically the Bond producers leave the theme until the last minute so it is very hard to tell if there is anything to these rumours in the first place. After the April Fools Day gag by the Sun about Craig supposedly opening the Olympics was taken so seriously by the rest of the medial blindly…

Turkish News Paper Claims Bond Movie Set Being Used To Smuggle Arms

File this one under strange next to the tinfoil hats. Besides the idea of Ms Broccoli’s EON Productions cooperating with the CIA on anything like this being extremely unlikely bordering on insane, the activities described sound like average goings on at a movie set. A shocking allegation hit Turkish media about the new James Bond…

James Bond movie set infiltrated by Turkish teens!

After all the trouble with a certain wildlife photographer you’d think EON would be a little more cautious in Turkey. As it turns out a group of Turkish High Schoolers easily bypassed security and got close enough to film part of the fight scene. The teens were apparently caught when one of them tried to…

Wildlife photographer update

Military Byelaws

The Foraging Photographer posted an update to her blog explaining a little more about the situation, we have updated our original story to reflect this. From what we have read it does not seem the Military Byelaws in place at Hankley Common actually cover what the MPs were trying to enforce. While it is true…

Wildlife Photographer in trouble for Skyfall Pics

The only real news coming off the Skyfall set has come from photographs and video taken by bystanders. When filming moved to Hankley Common, near Elstead, Lucy Browne a naturalist photographer began following the developments in her blog, The Foraging Photographer . She got some astonishing photographs of the Skyfall set being constructed along with a…

First James Bond franchise title is headed to Imax screens

  It seem sos far EON productions has resisted the urge to jump on the 3D Money  train, however they will be submitting Spyfail  to IMAX theaters to be digitally remastered for a release. Beyond our cynical nature it is a smart movie because IMAX release have demonstrated again and agian how valuable their contributions…

Beacons location film bites dust

Continuing the Broke Bond story, er, I mean the Budget Cut story from last week this item from the BBC seems to add credence to the earlier story. It appears Team EON once again were flirting with local leaders to get favors and permission granted only to walk away at the last moment. This has happening often enough in Spyfall to raise more than few questions about the production.     A movie production firm has pulled out…

Bond faces criticism over ‘cynical’ funeral scenes

skyfall-coffins-union-flags

Some understandable criticism for Bond 23′s mimicking of a real life funeral ceremony has erupted. Not to treat this situation too lightly, we do not know how it will appear in the movie, and after this public drubbing it may well never see the light of day. Discuss this in our forum: Bond faces criticism…

Thomas Newman Might Score The Next Bond Movie

New Rumour is that David Arnold is out for Bond 23 composer (AKA Spyfail ) , Thomas Newman is rumoured to be Arnold’s replacement. We had wondered how Arnold would balance his duties at the 2012 Olympics with his previous commitment to Bond, apparently he can not, or was not asked back. Discuss this in…

Fiennes to be New “M” ?

Ralph Fiennes will replace an iconic 007 character

Perhaps the second worst  kept secret of Bond 23 since the title is Ralph Fiennes role allegedly as the new “M”.  Suspected by fans since he was cast, apparently confirm by MovieWeb. No secret Judi Dench (who we do love) has been keen to leave the series for quite some time now, and Bond 23…

Ben Whishaw to play youngest Q?

The Daily Mail & The Guardian are reporting Ben Whishaw’s role in Skyfall is Q (Of course the source for all of this is based on a tabloid story from the Sun.). The character Q disappeared from the silver screen ten years ago, as sadly we must note so did Ian Fleming’s and Cubby Broccoli’s…
