Daniel Craig Confirms He Will Return One More Time To Play James Bond


Daniel Craig James Bond Stephen Colbert

Daniel Craig has finally ended more than a year over speculation over his future in the James Bond role, confirming this week that he will return to play 007 for the last time in the next movie.

The English actor famously said, ahead of the release of Spectre back in 2015, that he would sooner “slit his wrists” than play Bond again. However, he may now live to regret those words, after he confirmed to Stephen Colbert on US chat show ‘The Late Show’ on Tuesday night (August 15th) that he would be reprising the role one last time when the 25th movie is released in two years’ time.

“I have been quite cagey about it,” Craig admitted to Colbert. “I have been doing interviews all day and people have been asking me and I think I’ve been rather coy. But kind of felt like if I was going to speak the truth I should speak truth to you.”

The Greatest Roger Moore Anecdote You Will Ever Read


Roger Moore James Bond

The death of such an iconic actor as Roger Moore is always a tragedy, but he certainly left the world a lot of happy memories with his portrayal of James Bond. But there is one person in the world who perhaps has the greatest memory of Roger Moore in action.

When London writer Marc Haynes met the 'Live and Let Die' star in 1983 at the age of just 7-years-old, he had no idea how significant a moment it would be. He was with his grandfather in Nice airport when he spotted the actor reading a newspaper at the departure gate.

Charlie Hunnam James Bond

Could Charlie Hunnam go from King Arthur to James Bond as his next professional step up? He certainly seems up for the role as the lothario British spy, though he confesses that he hasn't actually been in talks about the part as of yet. But there's still time.

James Bond Tom Hiddleston Daniel Craig

The seemingly interminable speculation about who is set to become the next James Bond actor have taken another turn, with the revelation that Tom Hiddleston stands little chance of landing the part because, according to a producer, he’s “too smug”.

Bond chief Barbara Broccoli is reportedly not enamoured with the idea of The Night Manager actor Hiddleston, 35, playing 007 in the future, according to a new report by the New York Post’s Page Six.

“Barbara Broccoli doesn’t like Tom Hiddleston, he’s a bit too smug and not tough enough to play James Bond," a source told the publication on Wednesday (April 5th).

Movie Of The Day: 'Goldfinger' Starring Sean Connery


James Bond Sean Connery

While everyone's busy wondering who might takeover Daniel Craig as James Bond (Gillian Anderson is now a serious frontrunner, at least according to her fans), we're taking the chance to contemplate our favourite 007 of all time. Because no-one says 'Shaken, not stirred' quite like Sean Connery.

Sean ConnerySean Connery will always be James Bond to us

The lead actor... Sean Connery is a Scottish actor who became the first ever James Bond with 1962's 'Dr. No'. As well as 'Goldfinger', he also did 'From Russia with Love', 'Thunderball', 'You Only Live Twice', 'Diamonds Are Forever' and 'Never Say Never Again'.

Rough And Ready: Danny Dyer Plus 10 More Unlikely Future James Bonds


James Bond Danny Dyer Gerard Butler

After a rather lukewarm critical reception in comparison to its predecessor, 'Spectre' has left us feeling that the whole James Bond franchise could do with shaking up a bit. And what better way to do that than getting Danny Dyer on board? (Don't answer that.)

Danny DyerDanny Dyer wants to inject some working class charisma into the role

The 'Eastenders' star is willing after all, revealing to The Sun that he's seriously considering applying for the role when Daniel Craig leaves. 'I'd love to do the Bond. Bring something different to the Bond, you know what I mean?' He said. 'Bit of charisma. A working class Bond.'

'Spectre' Smashes UK Opening Week Box Office Records With Ease


James Bond Daniel Craig

'Spectre' breaks box office records with over £40 million ($60 million) in takings from its first week - and that's just in the UK! With numbers like that, it's particularly hard to believe Daniel Craig is considering leaving the franchise of his own accord.

James Bond - Spectre'Spectre' is predictably a record breaker

Unsurprisingly, the hotly anticipated new James Bond film has spectacularly surpassed the success of predecessor 'Skyfall' on its opening day, taking in a record-breaking £6.3 million to 'Skyfall''s £6.2 million ($9.6 million). But now it's broken the record for the highest takings at the UK box office in the first week, beating Alfonso Cuarón's 2004 film 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban'.

Sculptor Bradley Simms is pictured working on the wax figure sculpt of Pierce Brosnan, as Madame Tussauds London announces it will bring together all six Bonds for the first time in October. Brosnan played 007 four times appearing first in 1995’s GoldenEye , he is featured as he appeared in the 1997 film TOMORROW NEVER DIES. - Madame Tussauds London today announced it is bringing together wax figures of ALL SIX James Bonds for the very first time this October, with five completely new wax 007s joining the existing figure of Daniel Craig. To coincide with the release of Albert R. Broccoli's EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment's SPECTRE, the line-up of Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan and Craig will appear at the legendary London attraction for a limited time only, before embarking on a tour of Madame Tussauds' worldwide. This unique experience, created in close collaboration with EON Productions, will give fans an opportunity to stand side by side with all six Bonds - in the same place, at the same time. Guests are invited to see how they measure up to each 007, pose with their favourite and take a stand out profile picture. Each of these new wax figures will be featured in a classic 007 dinner suit, designed by Oscar® winning costume designer Lindy Hemming, based on the original costume. The Madame Tussauds team already had access to measurements of Craig, Connery, Moore, Dalton and Brosnan from previous figures featured at the attraction but needed George Lazenby's to complete the picture. The star of On Her Majesty's Secret Service was happy to oblige and gave the artists a sitting in LA in February. "The kind of information we can gather at a sitting is hugely beneficial, even at a different time period to the figure we are creating," commented Stephen Mansfield, one of the Principle Sculptors on the project. "George was extremely entertaining and generous and we gathered an entire catalogue of measurements, photographs and footage. We are using those along with references from the film to create what we hope will be an authentic and lifelike figure." General Manager of Madame Tussauds London, Edward Fuller, is delighted to be hosting the line up on the first leg of their world tour. He commented, "It's very at Madame Tussauds - London, United Kingdom - Friday 24th July 2015
