When No Time To Die comes out next year, it will officially make Daniel Craig the longest continuously-tenured James Bond in the franchise’s history. Craig’s five Bond films will have spanned 14 years, longer than even Roger Moore (12 years) or Sean Connery (nine years). Since it’s already been announced that this will be Craig’s last film as Agent 007, he’s happy that No Time to Die is ending his tenure on a high note.

After an amazing 15-season run, Supernatural will soon be coming to an end. But it’s likely that the show will live on for decades in syndication and streaming. (And, these days, who can ever rule out an on-air revival?) In any case, it’s a fair bet that Jensen Ackles will be hearing from Supernatural fans for the rest of his life, being told stories about how much the show has meant to them. He’s already heard plenty, and he admits it’s both touching and a little awkward when fans tell personal stories about the impact the show has had on their lives.

With Ford v. Ferrari being looked at as a serious awards season contender, taking the role of car designer Carroll Shelby is looking like a genius move for Matt Damon. Damon has previously told us he isn’t much of a car buff, so what was it about the film and the story that attracted his interest? (Click on the media bar below to hear Matt Damon)
When William Zabka was cast in the role of Johnny Lawrence in 1984’s The Karate Kid, it’s safe to say the last thing he was thinking about was how he would play the character as a middle-aged man 35 years later. Fate works in mysterious ways, however, and that’s exactly what he finds himself doing, co-starring in Cobra Kai, the long-term continuation of the Karate Kid characters’ stories. While Zabka and Ralph Macchio have been with Cobra Kai since it began, another old face re-emerged in the show’s second season: Martin Kove, who played John Kreese in the original movie. His arrival shook up Lawrence, and it made the second season an interesting one for Zabka. As he prepares for the show’s third season, Zabka told us exactly where he sees his character right now … and it’s not the best place. (Click on the media bar below to hear William Zabka)
The third season of Cobra Kai will stream on YouTube next year.
We’re now less than five months away from the Black Widow movie, and the anticipation for the film’s been raised by the release of a new trailer. Scarlett Johansson is looking fit and fierce as Natasha Romanoff (aka Black Widow), but David Harbour doesn’t fare quite as well. To quote the most memorable line from the trailer, aimed at Harbour: “You got fat!” Still, even if the character of Red Guardian isn’t looking his best, Harbour is still thrilled to be part of the movie, and he told us why he thinks audiences will love it.

There will be a lot of laughter and a lot of tears over the next few months at Soundstage 5 on the Twentieth Century Fox lot.
