The next 007 movie

SKYFALL


http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-15558355

3 November 2011 Last updated at 08:07 ET

Bond film called Skyfall

By Tim Masters, Entertainment and arts correspondent, BBC News

The title of the 23rd James Bond film has been confirmed as Skyfall.

The latest 007 adventure will star Daniel Craig for the third time. Leading ladies have been confirmed as French actress Berenice Marlohe and Naomie Harris.

Skyfall is being directed by Sam Mendes, who won an Oscar for 1999's American Beauty.

Mendes said the storyline will take the secret agent to London, China, Turkey and Scotland.

It will see Bond's loyalty tested to M, his superior, while espionage headquarters MI6 faces an attack.

The movie, which sees the return of Dame Judi Dench as spy boss M, will also star Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Javier Bardem as the villain of the piece.

It will be released in the UK on 26 October 2012.

Craig told reporters in London that the cast would start filming sequences for the new movie later on Thursday.

Much speculation about the new film has focused on what Mendes will bring to the franchise, with some suggesting he will tone down - or even abandon altogether - the action sequences.

But the director denied that this was the case. He told reporters in London that the "fantastic script" had "all the elements of a classic Bond movie, including - to quell any rumours - lots of action".

When asked what fans could expect from the latest film, he added: "The movie will reveal everything, and there's lots of surprises."
Producer Barbara Broccoli said no-one had yet been chosen to write and perfom the Bond theme tune.

Financial troubles

Next year marks the 50th anniversary of the first Bond movie, 1962's Dr No.

James Bond is one of the longest-running franchises in film history, but Bond 23 will mark the end of a four year gap.
The last 007 outing was in 2008's Quantum of Solace, directed by Marc Forster.

Work on the 23rd film was suspended in April 2010 because of uncertainty over the company's future.

The franchise had been on hold amid financial troubles, with MGM filing for bankruptcy protection last November.

A rescue deal and restructuring plan put US firm Spyglass Entertainment at the helm of MGM, which had struggled due to several box office flops and a DVD sales slump.

Craig - who made his Bond debut in Casino Royale in 2006 - is the sixth actor to play the British secret agent in the official Bond series.
Sir Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Sir Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan preceded him in the iconic role.

Casino Royale, was the most successful instalment in the franchise's 49-year history, making $594m (385m) worldwide.

I love Connery as an actor, but as Bond... pass.
Sorry for your terrible Bond taste that misses the whole spirit of the movie Bond. Here are the best movie Bonds:

1- Sean Connery

2- Sean Connery

3- Sean Connery

4- Sean Connery

5- Some Connery-like future Bond actor

6- George Lazenby

7- Timothy Dalton

8- Pierce Brosnan (Didn't like his voice. Also he got the shaft from EON with bad movie scripts)

9- Daniel Craig (Good actor, like the voice, don't like anything else.)

10- Roger Moore (Had every chance to be the second best Bond, but badly fumbled the ball.)

Well, you had better get used to Craig, he is going to be around for a long, long time.

I admit, I like Sean Connery a lot, as Bond and as an actor in general. I also agree that Pierce Brosnan did not get the best Bond scripts to work with.

But Craig has been lights out phenomenal as Bond. QOS was a disappointment, but with the writers strike going on before and during filming, it was destined to be a cluster from the get go. The fact that QOS turned out to be an okay movie is about the best one could hope for.

Craig's Bond has been rebooted from the ground up, and I look forward to the next chapter. Hopefully it won't take four years to get done.

Roger Moore was perfect for what they asked him to do. It was a different era, the movies were corny and over the top. Badly dated now, but he was fine for the time.

I think Pierce Brosnan best personifies the Bond suave. He had the look, the voice, and he was debonair. He's exactly what I'd expect James Bond to be like in real life, but his movies blew chunks.

Daniel Craig is nothing like what I would expect from James Bond. He's rough, rugged, and- I don't even know what else, but suave wouldn't be the first thing that came to mind. With that said, he acts well, is great in the action scenes, and his movies are fantastic.

I'd probably make my list with Craig as #1 with the slight nod over Connery at #2. **** everyone else.

Craig is a good actor alright. But so is Peter Dinklage. Peter Dinklage is not Bond. Neither is Craig. Craig benefits from being Barbara Broccoli's favorite and EON going out of their way to provide him with good scripts.

Brosnan fought for better scripts and more edge to the character but instead they just fired him.

The idea of a reboot has a lot of problems. Usually a reboot happens a few years after a series has run it's course. It's usually done by another outfit and not with the signatures of the first. This one was done only to tap into the box office popularity and success of a short blond spy named Bourne. Instead of the Bond franchise being a trail blazer, it became an imitator.

To make it all more stupid they not only kept the signature music and the intros, but also kept the same M who had already bossed around the old Bond. The new short, blonde, pre-00 Bond is introduced to the old M. What a crock of shit! I think EON counted on the new fans having a short attention span,.... and judging by some posts here, maybe they were right.

Or maybe some fans are smart enough to know Bond is a character, and they don't need to reinvent the wheel every time they hire a new actor.

And you go out of your way to wrap your disagreement with me in insults, only to agree with me. You are right, they didn't have to reinvent the wheel. But they did. Unfortunately. All they had to do was to start writing better scripts like they have for Craig.

To me, Pierce Brosnan could have been the quintessential Bond. A mixture of Connery, Lazenby and Moore, but the producers failed to provide him with great scripts.

He, if given the chance, would have been amazing in the reboot. I think Craig has done a great job but like you, feel his stature and blond hair throws off the decades long style and feel of the character. Even still, I love the movies he's done as Bond.

That said, I doubt we'd be having this conversation had Hugh Jackman not refused the role in 2005.

I actually like all the Brosnan movies except the last one. They sort of fell back to the over the top (Roger Moore) era stuff with that one. The 1st movie with Brosnan was sort of a reboot since Bond was a dead character there in the early 90s.

Jackman was my top choice when they were recasting Bond after the Brosnan era. But I understand he was rejected by Barbara Broccoli for being too "effeminate!!!" I think Babs had her site on Craig and nothing,... NOTHING was going to change that. This also explains why all the extra efforts are made for better quality of scripts and production. All is to sell Craig as Bond to a great section of the audience. They could have done the same for Jackman and everybody claiming Craig is the greatest Bond would have claimed the same for Jackman.

Brosnan had a lot going for him for the 007 except the commanding voice and delivery that Connery had. Craig is OK in that department. Too bad he just doesn't look like Bond.

Agreed about Brosnan. Connery remains the best Bond, but Brosnan should have been the best. He just got stuck with a lot of really terrible movies.

Lazenby's interesting. I think his short run has people overrating him a little and I used to do the same. Then I re-watched Secret Service and really thought he did a mediocre job. He was stiff, unpolished and just not as good as I remembered.

I think people like him more than they should because they just didn't get a chance to grow tired of him. And also, he played Bond in a single movie that was a little different from the rest and was quite good on its own. He gets credit for being Bond in a good movie, just as Dalton got nailed for being Bond in really bad movies (though Dalton just wasn't that good).

Craig's just a far different Bond than anyone that's come before him so its tough to put him in the hierarchy. For the most part, he's been James Bourne. I like his movies a lot and the gritty nastiness of them, but they're a world apart from the rest of the series. It's just tough to grade him with everyone else.

But back on track - yes, Pierce Brosnan is an underrated Bond and could've been the best Bond yet.
