Many consider the last James Bond film Skyfall the best film of the series, but consdiering the franchise’s continued momentum, the latest Bond flick Spectre might be even better. Daniel Craig told us that it was the cast and crew’s mission to make a Spectre a bigger and better film. Academy Award winning director Sam Mendes, who directed Skyfall and returned for this installment, welcomed everyone’s input and from there everything came together.

Mexico City and Rome are the backdrops for the latest James Bond (Daniel Craig) feature Spectre, and this time out he reunites with Mr. White (Jesper Christensen), the deadly Quantum operative who, considering Bond’s latest adversary Franz Oberhauser (Oscar winner Christoph Waltz), may be a pawn in a much bigger game.
Quantum, as the latest trailer suggests, may also be a subsidiary of the even more powerful organization Spectre, which is headed by Franz. Even with the ever ready Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) by his side, Bond may (at least for most of this narrative) have met his match.
Monica Bellucci also stars as Lucia Sciarra, a criminal’s widow and possible paramour of Bond’s, with Léa Seydoux (Blue Is The Warmest Color) playing Mr. White’s imperiled daughter Madeleine. Sam Mendes, who claimed in a BBC interview that this is his last Bond outing, directs the feature, which opens nationwide November 6.
The action-packed trailer is filled with beautiful women and features Bond’s trademark (and often times dry) charm, but the kicker comes at the end of the clip, when Franz admits that he is the “author” of 007’s pain.
Could Spectrehave a bigger twist than Skyfall,and are you excited to see this film? Feel free to comment below!
The melancholic yet unabashedly romantic drama 5 to 7 (R, 97 minutes), headlined by Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Only Lovers Left Alive) and Bérénice Marlohe) hits DVD come August 18 via IFC Entertainment.
The picture, which marks the film directing debut of producer Victor Levin (Mad About You, Mad Men), centers on Brian (Yelchin), a frustrated New York City writer who enters a passionate affair with a French woman named Arielle (Marlohe).
Though their chemistry and bond is undeniable, Arielle is in an open marriage and can only meet Brian at a Manhattan hotel between the hours of 5 and 7. While Arielle knows how to handle such a complicated situation, Brian has other ideas and, since he’s still in his twenties and a bit idealistic, wants much more.
The picture, which also stars Frank Langella and Glenn Close as Brian’s parents, may seem like a scandalous “affair” due to its subject matter, but writer-director Victor Levin opts for an altogether different and more resonant narrative. Love and desire doesn’t have a timetable, and for Brian and Arielle, their relationship grows into something more substantial than an afternoon tryst.
