    Review: Sam Mendes' 007 Film 'Skyfall' Sees James Bond Back To His Best

    Christopher Nolan is, famously (like many British directors), a big fan of the James Bond franchise. He said that he approached "Batman Begins" more like a Bond flick than a superhero movie, he directly nodded to one of 007's high watermarks in "Inception," and has publicly expressed interest in, at...

    Licence To Sing: The Lost James Bond Themes By Johnny Cash, Blondie, Pulp & More

    Among the many things that make the James Bond franchise unique -- the sheer longevity, the way it's only become more prestigious and successful as it goes on, its ability to survive actor changeovers -- is the music.

    Watch: Trailer For Sam Mendes' New James Bond Film 'Skyfall' Starring Daniel Craig

    The stakes have arguably never been higher for James Bond. 007 came roaring back in the form of Daniel Craig with "Casino Royale" in 2006, and the film was the most successful of the franchise to date, and one of the most acclaimed. But two years later, the rushed, messy, poorly directed "Quantum of...

    Albert Finney Goes From Bourne To Sam Mendes' 'James Bond 23'

    When it was announced that Oscar-winner Sam Mendes, a man best known for prestige pictures like "American Beauty" and "Revolutionary Road," would be directing the new James Bond film, it was generally seen as something of a curveball.

    'The Queen' Scribe Peter Morgan Says He's Writing A Heist Flick With The Scale Of 'Heat'

    '360' Pensmith Wrote The Story For Next Bond Film, But Never Got To Do A ScriptExclusive: Screenwriters can be typecast in the same way as actors, and if someone was to stereotype Peter Morgan at this point, it would be as "the biopic guy." He's picked up two Oscar nominations for films based on real people -- namely "The Queen" and "Frost/Nixon" -- and along the way has tackled figures as varied as Tony Blair (three times), Bill Clinton, Lord Longford, Idi Amin, Brian Clough and, not once but twice, King Henry VIII. But he's been keen to stretch his wings for some time, with his two most recent films both being original scripts: firstly Clin...

    Is 'Skyfall' The Name Of Sam Mendes' James Bond Film?

    Considering it's had an unusually tortured journey to the screen for a big franchise picture, thanks to the financial problems of MGM, it's not entirely surprising that details are relatively thin for the twenty-third James Bond film, the third to star Daniel Craig as the suave secret agent. Oscar-winner Sam Mendes has been attached to direct for close to two years now, we've known that for certain. Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who've penned the first draft of every Bond script since "The World Is Not Enough," again did the groundwork, before Peter Morgan, John Logan and most recently "Notes on a Scandal" scribe Patrick Marber, came on for a ...
