so true sir.
We finally got to see the movie yesterday it has much better story telling and stunts than anything in the Craig era and I’d say most of the Brosnan era. And it does it on a budget size bond has not seen since twine. Also cruise and the other actors care about putting out a good product and it shows.

Can't wait to see Vanessa Kirby in MI6. She mesmerized me as Margaret in The Crown.

Rewatched mission impossible rogue nation, together with fallout it blatantly steals the stuff bond would do. To be more accurate what the last 2 mi movies do successful is how Babs and Craig view the incoherent mash up of Batman and Bourne they produced.
So very bondian scenes in rogue nation and fallout. Just how did the bond team miss casting Rebecca Ferguson?

Probably the same way they missed to cast someone even remotely suitable for the role instead of Craig.

The current Hawaii Five-0 series (2010 to present) will open its ninth season with a remake of the pilot from the original series (1968-80).

An official update finally came on Monday (August 6) at the TCA press tour when Showtime's Gary Levine told Deadline that all movement on Purity is on hold at least until Daniel Craig finishes work on Bond.

However, the news outlet claims that Craig is still interested in making Purity at some point and that Franzen's shorter version could eventually be revisited.

In the aforementioned New York Times profile on Jonathan Franzen, Purity producer Scott Rudin described the original 20-episode concept as having "excellent" scripts.

I saw that. At first, I thought it was an old story, as I'd assumed the project was dead already. Wasn't this announced pretty much as soon as Craig signed up for Bondspotting?

It sounds like the script has been written already. That's not the EON way! They're supposed to cobble together a script about 6 weeks before principal photography commences.

Patrick Stewart to reprise role as Star Trek's Jean-Luc Picard

Actor will play Picard in series chronicling his adventures after Next Generation

Patrick Stewart is to reprise his role as Jean-Luc Picard in a new series of Star Trek.

The character, who featured in Star Trek: The Next Generation and a handful of films, will return in the new CBS All Access series, which will reveal the next chapter of Picard’s life.
how? Paramount blew up that timeline. It’s a good idea but have they given up on the reboot?


I hope they have. It's even less like classic Trek than Craig-Bond is like classic Bond. OK, it had a bit of Nimoy while he was still with us, but someone seemed to have decided it was a good idea to rip all the science out of it and mash in ideas from Star Wars.


Omega wrote:Strange how much credit is given to the new movies for “revitalizing” Star Trek but none of the movies made money and none of them beat what the original movies did with tiny budgets.


That's because it's mostly hype.

I think bringing back Picard is definitely a step in the right direction but I'm absolutely reserving judgment until I see the series. The scripts need to be written by someone that knows and loves Trek and has a healthy respect for the canon. No dumbing it down or doing things just for shock value.

After years of speculation that Idris Elba would be ideal for the James Bond role, Barbara Broccoli said in conversation with the director Antoine Fuqua that it was time for the famous spy to be played by a black actor :!: :hair: As reported in The Daily Star, Broccoli told Fuqua that ‘it is time’ for a person of colour to get the role and casting an ethnic minority as 007 ‘will happen eventually’. She continued: ‘Idris could do it if he was in shape.’ :shock: .........this woman is a menace :!:
