    Veteran Hollywood film director Steven Spielberg says the next star of one of his most iconic characters, Indiana Jones, should be played by a woman. Speaking to The Sun as his latest film Ready Player One hits the cinemas, Spielberg said that although it would risk anger from longtime fans of the Indiana Jones franchise, it is time the explorer took on a different form. Wed have to change the name from Jones to Joan, he said. And there would be nothing wrong with that. Ford, 75, first played Indiana Jones in 1981s Raiders of the Lost Ark and reprised...

    Rachel Weisz, who is married to James Bond (Daniel Craig), doesnt think the next 007 should be played by a woman. [Author Ian Fleming] devoted an awful lot of time to writing this particular character, who is particularly male and relates in a particular way to women, the Oscar-winning actress told The Telegraph this week. She continued, Why not create your own story rather than jumping on to the shoulders and being compared to all those other male predecessors? Women are really fascinating and interesting and should get their own stories.

    Fictional Cold War warrior James Bond should be played by a woman, Theresa May has said, hailing the new female Doctor Who as a victory for girl power. Speaking on a flight to Cyprus last week, where she gave a Christmas address to troops at RAF Akrotiri, the prime minister revealed she was a fan of the BBC science fiction show Doctor Who, and lauded the public broadcasters decision to cast Jodie Whittaker in the iconic time travellers role. I think its a great move forward for girl power that there is going to be a female Doctor Who. And...

    Who said no man is an island? Certainly not Ian Fleming, the writer who wrote my name is Bond James Bond. He first introduced that identifier in 1962 in a film titled Dr. No just two months after Jamaica shed its dependency on its imperial governors. As a matter of fact, the British novelist and Jamaican resident repeated the line in all his novels and films to successfully clue audiences throughout the world of a spy numbered 007 able to outsmart the most heinous criminals from Asia and Eastern Europe. That Jamaicans celebrated two coming out events that year...

    Nothing can kill James Bond. Not Jaws, Blofeld or a bevy of Bond girls with nefarious intentions. Yet 007 remains vulnerable to one intractable foe in the 21st century. Cinematic virtue signaling. And it could happen, according to recent comments from the scribes responsible for the last gaggle of Bond adventures. Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have helped write the last six Bond films, including the most recent installment Spectre. Theyre currently plotting the 25th Bond film which may, or may not, star Daniel Craig. The pair seem curious, if not eager, to bring in real world politics into the...

    The rumour mill has been swirling in recent months that he's set to take over the renowned James Bond franchise. And now, it appears fans can expect Idris Elba, 44, in the starring 007 role after his Guerrilla director John Ridley, 51, let sip that he 'can't wait' to see him on the silver screen commanding the iconic role. Speaking to BBC Radio One at the premiere of their new Sky Atlantic series, the Oscar winning writer couldn't help but gush about the Luther star's talent.

    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...

    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.

Bond and company have flown just about everything from "Bird 1" (Ernst Blofeld's fictional two-stage rocket used to capture U.S. and Soviet spacecraft) in You Only Live Twice to the Aerospatiale/Eurocopter helicopter operated by psychopath Xenia Onatopp (who uses her thighs to crush her opponents to death) in GoldenEye to the hot-air balloon blown up by the Cigar Girl assassin in The World...

    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.
  • Spectre review: James Bond is back, stylish, camp and sexily pro-Snowden

    10/21/2015 7:23:30 PM PDT · by Perdogg · 12 replies
    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...

    Christopher Wood, screenwriter on two big James Bond films of the 1970s, has died, Roger Moore said on Twitter. Wood, 79, was brought on to write 1977s The Spy Who Loved Me by the movies director, Lewis Gilbert. He came aboard after various scribes Richard Maibaum, Stirling Silliphant, Cary Bates and others had tried their hand at a story for the 10th 007 film.
