Phew, Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes Will Return for 'Bond 24' After All

We were starting to get a pretty serious case of whiplash over the issue of whether Daniel Craig would agree to don that tux one more time for that ubiquitous "Bond 24" installment and the news of whether his "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes would or would not or wait he maybe would return to helm. But now it's time to raise a toast with a "shaken-not-stirred" martini indeed because the studio has today confirmed the pair will re-team for another installment of 007, comin' at us in 2015.

The 13 Most Hilarious Google Movie Searches

Ah, Google. The greatest information superhighway, where most of us cruise on the daily, searching for intel only an absurdly complex, fast-acting algorithm can provide (unless you use Bing). We look for recipes, statistics, images, ourselves … pretty much anything and everything.

Google is a judgment-free zone, thus you can ask it whatever you'd like without fear or embarrassment. It's a mostly secret enterprise, as far as your personal search history is concerned. But ever since the search giant introduced the auto-fill drop-down function Google Instant, it's given us delicious insight into what others most commonly seek out around a subject.

Vulture made great use of this last week when it looked at what people most commonly asked about when it came to the Google love-fest "The Internship." It inspired us to look at a broader spectrum of Hollywood, plucking the very best/ most hilarious/ most absurd/ most depressing queries. Really, this list could go on forever ... Get More »

Penelope Cruz to Become the World's Oldest Bond Girl

According to the always reliable British press, Penelope Cruz — only one of the sexiest women in our known galaxy, n.b.d. — will be an oooh la la Bond girl in the upcoming 007 outing, which is scheduled to begin filming next summer.

Two notes: as you might recall, her hubby Javier Bardem played the slippery villain in last year's truly excellent "Skyfall", so there's that, and when production starts next year she will go down in history as the oldest Bond girl ever ... at the tender age of 40.

Zounds!

UPDATE: Not so fast there, Mendes! Mz. Broccoli isn't finished with you yet! According to a Deadline Hollywood report that went up just hours after Variety published a story revealing all of the directors in the running, the guy who directed "Skyfall" (and won an Oscar for "American Beauty") is back in the running to direct Bond 24 after all. Mendes had told Empire Magazine that he bowed out in order to focus on other projects, including a West End production of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." The Deadline report says that Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and her half-brother Michael Wilson are now open to waiting for him.

EARLIER: Are we ready to see James Bond with a wizard's wand? Will Nick Fury ask him to join "The Avengers" in a post-credits scene? How about Daniel Craig donning the "Iron Man" suit, helping a royal get over a stutter, or (gulp) fighting Hulk dogs? Get More »

When "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes announced earlier this month that he won't be returning for another Bond film, hardcore 007 fans around the world reacted by shedding a single tear of blood. And the rest of us were pretty bummed out too.

But according to SlashFilm, Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are still holding out hope that Mendes might change his mind and come back after all.

As someone once said, never say never again. Get More »

Next James Bond Flick Won't Arrive Until 2016

Columbia Columbia

Once upon a time, James Bond movies came out like clockwork. Every two years, a new Bond film would hit theaters. You could almost hear the ticking, like a time bomb counting down to the next explosion of awesome.

Well, according to Reuters, MGM has just cut the blue wire, because once again the countdown has stalled — and this time it's going to be at least three more years until we get a sequel to "Skyfall."

Hey, at least they'll have plenty of time to finish counting all their money. Get More »

Is Daniel Craig Being Written Out of 'The Girl Who Played With Fire?'

Adapting a beloved novel for the big screen is always a tricky task. Back in 2011, though, David Fincher and the folks at Fox managed to do a more than credible job with the international bestseller "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." Sure, some people were miffed that they tweaked the ending, but for the most part, it was fairly respectful of the source material.

Well, get a load of this: According to the Hollywood Reporter, Fox is considering writing Daniel Craig out of the sequel, "The Girl Who Played With Fire," entirely despite the fact that he plays one of the main characters in the franchise.

So much for being faithful to the book! Get More »

The Glorious True Face of James Bond Comes to Light

Remember when we all had some major funzies peeping what Batman, er, Bruce Wayne's true face looked like? Well, another fictional gent of debonair composure has now been exposed... This time, it's Bond, James Bond.

Unlike some heroes of his blockbuster caliber, Bond isn't in the global villain decimation game for popularity's sake. And all he needs in the way of costuming is a ridiculously well-tailored tuxedo, a shaken-not-stirred martini in his left hand and the keys to the latest automotive miracle of Her Majesty's Secret Service in his right (or a Walther PPK; that'll work also).
