First ‘Spy’ Trailer Turns Melissa McCarthy Into James Bond

Having grossed over $500 million worldwide between their work on Bridesmaids and The Heat, Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy have joined forces once more for a new action-comedy titled Spy.

I hate to be the guy who says if you’ve seen one Melissa McCarthy film you have more or less seen them all, but Spy looks incredibly familiar. McCarthy stars as an average citizen who, upon taking a job at the CIA, expects to become a world famous spy doing cool things and taking down bad guys. The reality of the situation is that she spends most her …

Dave Bautista Cast As A Villain In Sam Mendes’ Upcoming James Bond Film

Guardians of the Galaxy solidified Chris Pratt as Hollywood’s next big leading man, but it also helped the careers of seemingly everyone else connected to James Gunn‘s box office dominating Marvel release as well. The most surprising of the bunch is Dave Bautista, who’s mostly only known in the professional wrestling world until he took the scene-stealing role of Drax the Destroyer. He won over movie audiences worldwide and now, according to Latino Review, he’ll put that newfound love to the test by portraying a villain in Sam Mendes’ upcoming James Bond film.

According to the popular …

New Bond Films Will “Build On ‘Skyfall’”

James Bond scriptwriter John Logan revealed the next two movies in the franchise will “build on Skyfall.” Logan, who co-wrote Skyfall, is on board for the 24th and 25th Bond films and has big plans for the next chapter in the spy series.

He told IGN, “My goal is to write a great movie that’s appropriate, to build on what we did on Skyfall, but make it its own unique animal,” adding, “The themes, ideas and the characters from Skyfall can obviously continue on, because it’s a franchise, and it is an ongoing story. So I think …

MUSIC VIDEO: Muse – “Supremacy”

Brit pomp rockers Muse premiered the music video for “Supremacy”, the fourth single from their most recent album The 2nd Law.

A pivot away from Muse’s previous material, the focus on subtle sonic textures in “Supremacy” marks a new, more nuanced direction for the band.

Just kidding! The song is the audio equivalent of the following “What If?” scenario; in which Black Holes And Revelations closer “Knights of Cydonia” makes sweet, passionate love to Adele’s theme for Skyfall only to sneak out of the bedroom in the morning, leaving the soulful track from the British songstress shaken, not stirred. …

MOVIE REVIEW: Skyfall

Movie: Skyfall
Director:
Sam Mendes

I’m not sure if this is a minority opinion, but I’ve often considered the Bond franchise to be a rather divisive property. For everyone I know who loves the gadgetry, the intrigue and espionage, there’s another who resents the cheese and vainglorious posturing of the early days and the emotionless gloss of the latter ones. Granted, these complaints were largely put to rest following Daniel Craig and Martin Campbell’s brilliant reinvention of the franchise with 2006’s Casino Royale, and yet some detractors seem to linger – perhaps justifiably so following the largely lukewarm reception …

STREAM: Adele – “Skyfall”

It was confirmed within the last two weeks and tonight we have the premiere of Adele’s theme for the upcoming James Bond film, Skyfall. Written with Paul Epworth, Adele’s signature elegance breathes larger-than-life qualities into this one, and I think it fits nicely alongside the other legendary themes in the Bond cannon. You can stream the single after the jump.

Skyfall hits theaters this November…

Preview of Adele’s “Skyfall” theme released

The theme song to the upcoming 23rd James Bond picture “Skyfall” may not be released officially till Thursday, but a short preview of Adele’s song was just released. The preview, clocking in at just under two minutes, recalls the older themes from the Sean Connery days of James Bond, and with everything that’s happening, people might just need a little old fashioned.
