  • Daniel Craig offered $150 million to return as James Bond

    The Telegraph ^ | September 5th, 2016 | Rebecca Hawkes
    Many men and women too, for that matter would love to play James Bond. Most of us would also love $150 million. But Hollywood superstar Daniel Craig is not most people. The 007 actor, who has played the spy since 2005, has reportedly been offered the hefty sum listed above to return to the franchise for two more films. But Craig has made no secret of his reluctance to step back into the famous tuxedo. The studio is desperate to secure the actors services while they phase in a younger long-term successor, a source told the celebrity news...
  • For Freepers that enjoy James Bond movies

    This is for any James Bond fan. Ian Fleming's films exposed us to the Globalist control freaks (like George Soros) as "Spectre" in the James Bond series long before most of us really understood it. Anyway Ken Adam did an outstanding job showing us the criminal Gloablist elite in their armored redoubts and deep underground military bunkers. This 3 minute video shows his movie sets from Goldfinger to Moonraker. Enjoy!

    BEIJING To mark Chinas first National Security Education Day, a Beijing district put up posters warning women that handsome foreign men may be spies. Titled Dangerous Love, the comic book-style panel of posters tells the story of Xiao Li, a young government worker, and David, a red-haired "academic." David and Li meet at a dinner party, and he soon begins to woo Li with gifts and flowers. She marvels at her luck. Having a handsome, romantic, cultured foreign boyfriend is great! she says in frame six. David, though, is a foreign spy intent on stealing Chinese state secrets. One...

    I was discussing with a friend two articles today, when I suddenly saw the future — and believe me, it’s not pretty, or at least not any prettier than Daniel Craig in a lush blonde wig as he carries out his secret agent duties. The first article involved the trauma Milo Yiannopoulos visited upon Rutgers’ students when he gave a campus speech challenging Social Justice Warriors. The second article was learning that the CIA is incorporating into its hiring policies the same activist mindset that SJWs have been demanding on American campuses. The resulting epiphany was how James Bond would...

    George Lazenby certainly looked the part. But could the 28 year old, who had no acting experience and was more himbo than sophisticate, really play James Bond? Producers ran him through a series of tests to make sure the model could play the role. His acting was reviewed. His fighting ability was judged. Then, in another important consideration for the times, they made sure their hero wasn’t gay.

    LOS ANGELES ( - James Bond is back on top, after "Spectre" led the U.S. box office for the second weekend in a row. Of course, the dashing super spy wasn't exactly facing off against Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Its main competition was the second weekend of "The Peanuts Movie" and a lackluster crop of new releases such as the Chilean mining drama "The 33" and the faith-based football film "My All American." "Spectre" added $35.4 million to bring its domestic total to $130.7 million. The weekend represents a 49% drop from its opening. Sony is distributing the Metro-Goldwyn-Meyer and Eon...

    A license to kill is also a license to not kill,” M lectures his new boss in the 24th James Bond film, “Spectre.” Well, it’s not a license to bore as much as this bloated drag manages to do. After a smashing opening sequence with a rooftop chase set against Day of the Dead observances in Mexico City, we’re plunged into a patchy plot (basically the same as the last “Mission: Impossible” outing) that’s little more than an excuse for random homages to the series’ illustrious past — reminding us how utterly mediocre this one is.

    One of the longest-running franchises, James Bond movies have been entertaining us since Sean Connery uttered that line, "Bond ... James Bond," in 1962's "Dr. No." As the franchise has made over $4 billion worldwide to date, and the 24th movie "Spectre" is coming out November 6, there are still no signs that the world's coolest spy will be slowing down (even if Daniel Craig is getting tired of playing him). But what has made the franchise so unstoppable for so long? Let us dive into the numbers and see which of the movies did the best in theaters and...

    British journalist and TV personality Piers Morgan published an article via Daily Mail Online on Monday, calling for an end to this PC nonsense regarding backlash facing actor Sir Roger Moore for his recent remarks on the true character of James Bond. Morgan's favorite James Bond Sir Roger Moore, 88, has come under fire for saying that the 007 character originally created by author Ian Fleming should never be gay or female. [] In his piece, Morgan defends Moore and argues that changing Bonds gender or sexual orientation would fundamentally transform the whole tone of the franchise.

    If nothing else, the spelling of the title should tip you off that this is a thoroughly English movie franchise. Bond is back and Daniel Craig is back in a terrifically exciting, spectacular, almost operatically delirious 007 adventure endorsing intelligence work as old-fashioned derring-do and incidentally taking a stoutly pro-Snowden line against the creepy voyeur surveillance that undermines the rights of a free individual. Its pure action mayhem with a real sense of style. Ralph Fienness M finds himself battling a cocky new colleague Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott) who wishes to abolish the 00-programme in favour of a vast...

When asked if the actor, who plays the iconic James Bond for a fourth time in the upcoming "Spectre," would do another 007 film, the answer was salty, to say the least. Id rather break this glass and slash my wrists, said Craig. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That's fine. I'm over it at the moment. We're done. All I...

Horowitz, the writer of new Bond novel Trigger Mortis, said he had worked carefully to preserve Ian Flemings original character and ensuring his 1950s attitudes remained in tact.

    With a voice that sounded as if it was preserved in oak and dark good looks straight out of a Bronte novel, its a surprise that Richard Johnson (who died today) never became an A-list film star. However, the career which he carved out on stage and screen was probably far more interesting and durable than a life at the mercy of a big studio would have allowed. Certainly his bid for the big time was thwarted early on. MGM, who had been impressed with his performance in Never So Few (1959), signed him to a multi-million pound...

As of Jan. 1, the original writings of Fleming, a former British naval intelligence agent who published 12 novels and nine stories featuring 007 between 1952 and 1966, have entered the public domain. Thats because Canadas view of copyright is that it extends for 50 years after the death of a writer.

But next year's film, Spectre, features something rarely seen in the Bond world: an age-appropriate co-star. The so-called "Bond girl," in this film, is Monica Bellucci, age 50. For a franchise that has been built on the idea that Britain's most famous spy has no qualms about romantic entanglements with a teenager (Aliza Gur was a teenager while filming "From Russia With Love"), it's a step forward.
