Tintin 3D

He may not look the same, but this Tintin is as ex-quiff-itely fun as ever.

Bond 23: Skyfall

Casting news. Press conference reports. On set photos. Plus a video clip of Ben Whishaw saying "Moneypenny".

In Time

Omega load of nonsense, but this is a fun watch.

Tower Heist

By the halfway point, you'll wish they made Towering Inferno instead.

The Awakening

A classic haunted house tale that packs emotion and chills aplenty into 107 tense minutes.


It’s Before Sunrise. But with two blokes. In Nottingham. A superb slice of contemporary cinema.

Machine Gun Preacher

An interesting tale of philanthropy that strays too often from the straight and narrow.

Johnny English Reborn

It's lazy and obvious - but at least it's better than Quantum of Solace.

2011 BIFA Nominations

The British Indepedent Film Awards expect people to choose between Shame, Tyrannosaur and Tinker, Tailor. HOW? IT'S IMPOSSIBLE.

The Ides of March

When it comes to award-worthy class and political tension, The Ides most definitely has it.


Never has a game of spot the stiff been this fun. You'll enjoy it so much you'll have to wash your hands afterwards.

Last night, @007 announced two new cast members for Bond 23, Skyfall: Helen McCrory and Ola Rapace.

Skyfall cast announcement


Here are some exciting facts about each:


Ola Rapace is Swedish. This makes him 700% more awesome.

Helen McCrory was once in Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking. This is not a porn film.

Ola Rapace was married to Noomi Rapace. This also makes him 700% even more awesome.

Helen McCrory played a vampire in Dr Who. But it turned out she was actually a big fish.

"Rapace" means BIRD OF PREY in Italian. Oh yeah. 

Helen McCrory played Cherie Blair in The Queen and Narcissa Malfoy in Harry Potter. No-one can tell the difference. 

Old Rapace is an anagram of A Coral Ape. 

Helen McCrory is an anagram of Lyncher Comer.

Helen McCrory is married to Damian Lewis. This makes her 700% even more awesome.


Here ends today's token Bond 23 update.



This Is Not Just a Sink...

This is a Roger Deakins sink:



Yes, this very minute Roger Deakins is currently on the set of Bond 23 (Skyfall) making everyone look amazing.



Bond 23 Facebook page - press conference updates 

This morning, a James Bond Facebook page and a 007 Twitter account appeared in my inbox. Why? Because, of course, today is a big day for the James Bond franchise. Yes, it's 50 years ago today that Sean Connery was announced as the first actor to play James Bond in Dr. No.



But it was also the day that Bond 23's title was announced. As everyone expected, it's called Skyfall. A slight let-down, but it's not the end of the world. (Unless Chicken Licken is in it, in which case it definitely is.)

In between the endless (and equally dreadful) Skyfall jokes flying around on t'internet (I was still hoping it would be called 23nal Destination), the following details came out about Bond 23. It's directed by Sam Mendes (we already knew that), stars Daniel Craig in his last contractually-obliged Bond film (we knew that too), as well as Judi Dench as M, Javier Bardem as the bad guy, Naomie Harris as a field agent called Eve and Bérénice Marlohe as a Bond girl. Other cast members include Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and (most exciting of all) Ben Whishaw (hopefully as Q). Ben Whishaw in a Bond film? Now all we need is Romola Garai as Moneypenny.



As well as all that stuff, we finally found out the plot for Bond 23. Here it is:

Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack. 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

A shady back story for the security chief? Personal costs and old enemies? The Skyfall synopsis sounds a lot like Spooks to me. And that's no bad thing. Now someone get Harry Pearce involved, dammit.

Here's the whole Skyfall family looking chirpy in London:

As the excitment dies down - and people start spreading rumours that Moneypenny's first name might be Eve after all, or that Ralph Fiennes is returning as Blofeld after Craig's comment that Skyfall is "Bond with a capital B" - it's time to continue counting down to the film's release next October the only way we know how... by watching one Bond film a month.
