A common staple of the long-running James Bond franchise is the Bond girl. There is no set number on how many Bond girls can appear in one film or set rules on the role she will play in the film. The character can be either an ally or an enemy, a pivotal character to Bond’s mission, or just simply eye candy.
For the upcoming James Bond film, Spectre, there will be four Bond girls. Lea Seydoux (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, The Grand Budapest Hotel), Monica Bellucci (The Matrix Revolutions, Shoot ‘Em Up), and Stephanie Sigman (Netflix’s Narcos, FX’s The Bridge) will play new characters in the film, while Naomie Harris (28 Days Later) will reprise her role as Moneypenny, a role she first played in Skyfall.
Now Sony Pictures and EON Productions has released four brand new images and shared character descriptions for the four Bond girls that will appear in Spectre, which you can check out below.
Sam Mendes‘ Skyfall helped bring back James Bond after the franchise took a slight misstep with Quantum Of Solace. With Mendes set to return for Spectre, the director is saying that he will not be turning for a third time.
The first teaser for Spectre, the new James Bond film, focused on Bond’s past and a possible connection to the titular nefarious organization. While it lacked those trailer moment/action sequences, it was a fine set-up for those who have been waiting for a sequel since Skyfall. Now a new TV spot has arrived, and it features all new footage that wasn’t seen in the teaser trailer. It is a more action focused trailer, with Bond pulling no punches.
The TV spot, which runs at a minute long, also features some older footage, but is primarily focused on showing you just how intense the action will be in the film. Check out the newest TV spot for Spectre below.
The first trailer for the latest James Bond adventure, Spectre, has premiered this evening. You can watch it here below.
After doing a bang-up job directing Skyfall, Oscar-winner Sam Mendes is back behind the camera for Daniel Craig‘s fourth go-around as Ian Fleming‘s iconic, globe-trotting British superspy. Spectre‘s inaugural teaser is light on action and heavy on mood and mystery, literally keeping Christoph Waltz‘s secret villain in the shadows. We get some hints at Bond’s past, including a callback to the final battle in Skyfall, and the surprise appearance of Jesper Christensen as Mr. White, the enigmatic puppet master who appeared briefly in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, indicates that we might see some loose ends from those earlier films finally get tied up.
Marvel Studios’ summer 2014 sci-fi superhero blockbuster hopeful Guardians of the Galaxy hasn’t even gone before the cameras yet, but it has insane amounts of press and brownie points for assembling what has to be the most eclectic cast ever seen in a comic book adaptation.
In the past week alone the James Gunn-directed movie has added former Doctor Who star Karen Gillan and Oscar nominees Glenn Close and John C. Reilly to an acting ensemble that already included Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, David Bautista, and Lee Pace. Now, we can add to that line-up a bonafide Oscar winner.
Mike Fleming Jr. at Deadline has reported that Benicio Del Toro, who won the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award in 2001 for his performance in Steven Soderbergh’s epic drama Traffic and has also given standout performances in The Usual Suspects and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, has joined the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy in a role that is still being kept under wraps.
