Bond 24 is titled SPECTRE

A live announcement from Pinewood Studios this morning revealed the title of the much anticipated Bond 24 due out next October.

SPECTRE will see Daniel Craig reprise his role as 007, which also features a host of new names joining the production set to start filming from Monday.

Director Sam Mendes returns giving us hope that SPECTRE will be just as good, if not better, than the box office breaking Skyfall.

Casting wise, Naomie Harris will be Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw is Q, Rory Kinnear is back as Tanner and Ralph Fiennes steps into the role vacated by Dame Judy Dench as the new M.

There are of course a host of new characters, and these include; Andrew Scott, who is playing Denby, a member of the MI6 home team.

No Bond film would be complete without its glamorous ladies and Lea Seydoux (Blue Is The Warmest Colour) is playing Madeleine Swann while Monica Bellucci is Lucia Sciarra.

There was much speculation this outing would feature James Bond’s greatest nemesis Ernst Blofeld, and Oscar winner Christoph Waltz will play villain Oberhauser.

Its unclear at this stage if he will eventually end up as Blofeld complete with while cat and swivel chair, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Dave Bautista star of Guardians Of The Galaxy will play henchman Hinx, so expect a fierce mismatch for James Bond to deal with at some point.

James Bond’s motor has also been upgraded and it was revealed he will be driving an Aston Martin DB10 in the film. No doubt equipped with a whole host of gadgets courtesy of Q branch.

Once filming starts they’ll be more news about plot, additional cast and perhaps a teasing picture or two from on the set. Either way it’s something to look forward to next year.

A very cool poster has also been released which you can see below. This features a bullet hole through glass that appears to be shaped like an octopus, which is SPECTRE’s logo.

SPECTRE will be released in cinemas in October 2015.

Terminator: Genisys tease for tomorrow’s trailer

OK, so tomorrow is not long to wait, but here is a brief (and we mean brief) teaser trailer for the actual full trailer for Terminator: Genisys.

The trailer doesn’t feature a hell of a lot but its enough to whet the appetite for fans of, let’s face it, an exhaustive franchise.

It features a cool shot of a T-1000 aboard the top of a police car, the Earth taking a battering, a ship of some description and of course Arnie himself, complete with exoskeleton arm.

The new film sees Arnold Schwarzenegger return to one of his most famous roles, and he’s joined by Emilia Clarke (Game Of Thrones), Jai Courtney (Divergent), Jason Clarke (Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes) and Matt Smith (Doctor Who).

Emilia Clarke will be the new Sarah Connor while Courtney plays Kyle Reese and Jason Clarke is John Connor. There is no clue yet as to what role Matt Smith is going to play. Hopefully there will be know Tardis involved!

Terminator: Genisys opens in the UK on 3 July 2015.

Check out the teaser below…

And in case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the motion poster below.

New trailer and poster for The Judge

The trailer for Robert Downey Jr and Robert Duvall’s latest film The Judge has arrived online, along with the film’s poster, and it’s a bit of a tear jerker if we’re honest.

Downey Jr, minus his Tony Stark goatee, (although the shadow still appears to be there) must defend his father a local judge in a murder trial, with the only problem being that he hates him.

Directed by David Dobkin who brought us Wedding Crashers, The Judge looks like being more of a serious drama.

Looking at the trailer it will have some deep and at times moving performances from its leading men, which is great as I got pretty sick and tired of Tony Stark after a while.

Supporting is Vincent D’Onofrio, Vera Farmiga and Billy Bob Thornton as the opposing council.

The film is released in the USA October 10th and in the UK a short time after that, the film will be reviewed in a future post.

First trailer for No Good Deed

Idris Elba turns a bit nasty in the first online trailer for home invasion thriller No Good Deed.

Elba plays an escaped convict who on a wet and stormy night sets about terrorising poor Taraji P. Henson whose home alone with her young daughter. Sometimes good folk are just too nice to strangers.

It gives us a chance to see Elba play the bad guy for a change as he uses his massive (and we mean that literally) on screen presence to great effect.

The home invasion thriller is yet another genre that keeps ticking along, done in the right way and you can really ramp up the thrills and chills., get it wrong and its about as thrilling as getting a visit from the gasman.

The film is directed by Sam Miller who also worked with Elba on several episodes of Luther (something which I have yet to see). All things considered, and going by the trailer itself, this looks like it could be a good little thriller.

No Good Deed opens in the UK October 31st.

Frank Grillo to star in The Raid remake

Is there any real point to remaking Gareth Evans high octane action classic The Raid? In one simple word, fuck no!

However, Hollywood have decided that enough time has past (all three years) to remake/reboot the foreign language film, and they have got Frank Grillo on board cast as one of the three main characters.

It amazes me why anyone feels the need that this is a good idea, are filmgoers not able to cope with subtitles or is it that they just cannot be bothered to sit there and read them. Either way it looks like there is no stopping this one and production will be going ahead early next year.

Grillo though, would seem to be well qualified to star in this as he comes complete with 20 years Jujitsu experience, and a black belt, so we’re pretty sure he’ll be dishing out some serious ass kicking.

“I can’t wait to actually go do it because it’s gonna be Americanized, but not overtly Americanized. It’s really gonna keep a lot of what made the first Raid so great,” said Grillo.

Whatever happens they are going to have to work pretty hard to make sure that the fan boys are kept happy!

The film is going to be directed by Patrick Hughes and a release date is yet to be confirmed.
