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.
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 »
WARNING: SPOILERS RUNNING FREE.
Generally speaking, bad guys are bad guys because they want to do bad things and get away with them, so if you see one get caught in the middle of a movie it usually means they've got an ace up their sleeve. Lately we've been seeing this trend of the bad guy getting caught on purpose (capture, interrogation, threat, destruction, escape) in big tentpole blockbusters, and either every copy of Final Draft has a glitch that automatically pastes that into a script … or folks are getting lazy.

Penis imagery: Like love, it's all around us.
Really, though, in movies, it's everywhere. And most likely, depending on the director, it's completely intentional. Yes, most of the directors you casually enjoy are actually perverted creep shows. Like Bruce Hornsby once so eloquently put it, that's just the way it is, folks. You had to learn sometime.
Don't believe us? Here are 20 not-so-subtle examples of phallic movie stills that will have you saying to yourself, "Wow, I didn't realize that Jean-Claude Van Damme with a Jheri curl could get any creepier."
'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' (2013)
Juicy. Firm. Luscious.
Guys, we're not talking about a piece of fruit! (Though fruit is a nutritious snack that can often be described by the above adjectives.) Uh-uh, we're thinking more along the lines of abs than apples. Particularly, the abdominal regions of our 2013 MTV Movie Awards Best Shirtless Performance nominees. Which nominee will dance away with the Golden Popcorn in this brand new category on Sunday night? Get More »
Changing appearances for the sake of entertainment is nothing new in Hollywood; it's all part of the gig. But when professional heartthrob Ryan Gosling tweaks his look, disgruntled fans are going to have something to say about it.
In "The Place Beyond the Pines," Gosling sports a bleach-blond 'do for his role as a motorcycle racer-turned-bank robber. As photos started surfacing during the film's production, people were wondering what the heck was going on with his hair. Serious drama. 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 »
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.
Hey, at least they'll have plenty of time to finish counting all their money. Get More »
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.

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."
