James Bond Spectre wallpapers

James Bond Spectre splash

The recently released James Bond film Spectre has been showing good numbers in the box office. A harkening back to the good old days of Bond, Spectre is full of gadgets, cars, and explosions. It puts Casino Royal’s only gadget, the heart defibrillator, to shame, but Spectre doesn’t quite hang with Skyfall.

My personal movie commentary aside, it was a bang up James Bond film and a few iOS device wallpapers will show your support. Inside, there are Spectre wallpapers for iPhone, iPad, and desktop. Although today’s Wallpapers of the Week post is a mixed bag of devices, there is something for everyone. … Read the rest of this post here

James Bond #1 Review

Dynamite couldn’t have picked a better week to kick off their new ongoing James Bond series. However, don’t expect this book to match the tone and style of films like Spectre and Skyfall. This series draws its inspiration directly from the original Ian Fleming novels. But while it scratches a different itch, this first issue offers plenty to enjoy for any fan of Agent 007.

Fleming’s Bond is a colder and more brutal character than the one we typically see on screen, and writer Warren Ellis and artist Jason Masters really tap into that quality with their terrific opening sequence. As Bond chases down and savagely dispatches an assassin in Helsinki, all the reader needs to know about the character is made clear. Ellis’ prose is kept to a minimum here, allowing Masters’ textured pencils and cinematic storytelling to shine instead. Apart from some occasionally stiff figure work, Masters delivers some of his strongest work to date in this issue. No good Bond adventure is complete without a great cold opening, and this issue certainly delivers.

SPECTRE Review

The spectre of James Bond’s past looms large over this latest instalment in the billion dollar franchise. There are old scores demanding to be settled. Characters speaking from beyond the grave. And proceedings even open with the somewhat ominous words ‘The dead are alive.’ But while the new film neatly connects the Daniel Craig features, it never quite hits the highs of predecessor Skyfall; SPECTRE – the 24th official entry – delivers entertaining if unspectacular thrills.

The dead are most definitely alive during the opening scene, with the drama taking place in Mexico City during Dia de los Muertos. And while it’s not the best of Bond’s pre-credit sequences, director Sam Mendes has crafted what might just be the coolest; James strutting the streets to a toe-tapping percussive score, weaving in and out of thousands of extras, and scaling the outside of a building in what looks like a single unbroken take. He then hunts his prey in an adrenaline-fueled chase, the scene only slightly spoiled by some dodgy CGI during the concluding punch-up in a helicopter.

Warren Ellis to Write James Bond Comic

Acclaimed comics scribe Warren Ellis has been tapped by Dynamite Entertainment to write their new James Bond 007 ongoing series, due to hit shelves in November. Paired with artist Jason Masters, Ellis is launching the first official comic series based on Ian Flemming’s seminal spy series in over two decades.

“Ian Fleming’s James Bond is an icon, and it’s a delight to tell visual narratives with the original, brutal, damaged Bond of the books,” Ellis said in a statement (via Newsarama).

Spy Debuts as Number 1 Movie; Entourage Opens Weak

While HBO hoped to win over audiences with a film revival of its popular show Entourage, it was competing comedy Spy that ruled the North American box office.

The Paul Feig-directed James Bond spoof, starring Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Jude Law and Rose Byrne, took home $30 million. Spy eclipsed Entourage, which fell short of expectations with $10.4 million for the weekend and a five-day launch total of $17.8 million (it opened Wednesday), according to The Hollywood Reporter. It’s likely that Warner Bros. and HBO Films hoped to mimic the success of the 2008 Sex and the City movie, which opened to $58 million.

SPECTRE: Here’s the Opening Sequence for Bond 24

Warning: Spoilers for the opening sequence of Spectre follow…

It’s a grey and windy day in Mexico City and production on the elaborate opening sequence for Spectre AKA Bond 24 is under way. The first teaser trailer for the film dropped earlier this evening, and as that was happening a group of journalists watched from a hotel terrace as the production team filmed a section of the intricate Day of the Dead action scene that opens the movie; one which long-time James Bond producer Michael G. Wilson calls “the biggest” they’ve done to date.

Kingsman: The Secret Service Review

In Kingsman: The Secret Service, director Matthew Vaughn once again proves that he excels in taking well-established — one might even say tired — genres and tropes and reenergizing them with his patented blend of wit, reverence for what has come before, and hyper-violence.

Adapted from the comic series by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, Kingsman is a paean to the super-spy movie, but with a specific eye towards modernizing the gadget-crazed, Very British variation on the kind. Yes, bulletproof umbrellas and watches that shoot amnesia darts are back in vogue thanks to Vaughn and co-scripter Jane Goldman, and you’ll love them for it. Of course, who can be surprised that the director — the guy who sent the X-Men to the Mod 1960s in First Class — would fixate on the stylings of the James Bond archetype? In Kingsman, it’s the suit that makes the agent as much as anything else.

Bond 24 Rewrite to 'Punch Up' the Humor

The recent hiring of veteran 007 screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade to rewrite John Logan’s script for James Bond 24 was reportedly due to the filmmakers’ desire to add more wit to the story.

The late call for rewrites is said to have created “polite turmoil” behind the scenes and pushed the start of filming back from this October to December.

According to sources for The Daily Mail, “Purvis and Wade have been asked to ‘punch up’ the script and sprinkle in more gags, emphasising the witty repartee between Daniel Craig’s 007 and Naomie Harris’s Miss Moneypenny, and focusing on the interplay between Bond and Ralph Fiennes’s M.”

Veteran Bond Writers Return to Script Bond 24

Screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who both co-wrote the last five Bond movies, are returning to pen the script for James Bond 24.

According to Variety, the British writing duo have been hired to re-write John Logan’s draft of the screenplay. All three of them had collaborated on Skyfall, but up until now, Logan was the only one signed on for this latest Bond, which reportedly has a December production start in place.

As announced last year, Sam Mendes will return to direct, with Daniel Craig reprising his role as the iconic 007. MGM, Sony and producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli are also attached.
