Anyone Wanna Buy James Bond's Submarine Car?


Those boyhood dreams of yours of being as slick as Bond, James Bond now have a slightly higher possibility of coming true.

In September, the Lotus Espirit Series 1 submarine that Roger Moore's Bond piloted in "The Spy Who Loved Me", will be put up for auction in London (... rockets, unreasonably sexy secretaries, and creepy, partially deformed villains sold separately, of course, and the submarine probably should not be driven under the influence of any shaken-not-stirred martinis).

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.

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.

JK! Sam Mendes In Talks to Direct Bond 24

DanielCraig_Skyfall_7_300 Sony

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 »

Sam Mendes Back on Bond? Never Say Never Again

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 »

50 Upcoming Movie Sequels (Yep, 50)

Army of Darkness Universal

Sequels are awesome, plain and simple. Returning to familiar characters and worlds we love is like covering yourself with a warm blanket, although when a sequel is bad it can be like a blanket covered in potato bugs and lice. Studios love sequels because seven times out of ten they open huge, no matter how good they are. 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 »

Sam Mendes Won't Be Directing the Next James Bond Film


If you were wondering who "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes thinks is the greatest James Bond villain of all time, the answer is apparently Dr. No, as Empire is reporting that Mendes has just given a big thumbs down to the idea of directing the next James Bond film.

A Cappella 'Skyfall' Cover is Pitch Perfect

It was a welcome surprise on Oscar night when Dame Shirley Bassey reminded us that she was, at one point, the queen of the James Bond theme song. Not that Adele has necessarily snatched her crown, per se (sharing is fun!), but she most definitely deserved the golden statue she received for her theme to "Skyfall."

Actually, it's pretty fair to say that anything Adele touches turns to gold (or, to be honest, quadruple platinum), which is why hearing the tune done without instruments or Adele's voice has the potential to be, er, less than good. But don't tell that to a cappella quintet LVL5, whose excellent, lush "Skyfall" cover (and impressive lead solo by Octavia Petrut) would surely be enough to get Adele to call it "bloody brilliant."
