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.

No More Bond Movies for Director Sam Mendes

Director San Mendes has confirmed that he’s not keen on helming any more Bond films after SPECTRE.

“I said no to the last one

and then ended up doing it, and was pilloried by all my friends,” Mendes told the BBC. “But I do think this is probably it.”

Mendes explained that SPECTRE is a bigger movie than Skyfall, describing the globetrotting shoot as an “enormous undertaking.”

Mendes called the gig a “fantastic life-changing thing” but conceded he doubted he could do it again.

“You do have to put everything else on hold,” he said.

Mendes also revealed that the SPECTRE theme song was complete,  although he naturally refused to divulge who had recorded it.

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.

Barbarella Series Coming to Amazon

From the studio that brought you NBC’s Hannibal and Netflix’s Hemlock Grove comes… Barbarella?

Deadline reports that Gaumont International Television is setting up the Barbarella TV series at Amazon Studios. Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who worked on Skyfall, have already penned the pilot script. Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive) is set to executive produce with Martha De Laurentiis (Hannibal), whose late husband produced the original film starring Jane Fonda as Barbarella. A search for a showrunner is reportedly underway “in anticipation of a pilot pickup.”

The 1968 film Barbarella (based on a French comic book of the same name) is an erotic sci-fi action-adventure that follows the eponymous character as she journeys through space to stop an evil scientist from creating a secret weapon. There’s a President of Earth and a character named “Dildano,” if that gives you an idea of the thoughtful gravitas the movie shoots for.
