Despite the set disasters and injuries, James Bond 25 is still in production for an April 2020 release. Though we still know very little about the film itself, it has recently been revealed that Christoph Waltz would return to reprise his character, Blofield. While that would be a cause for excitement for some, the character was introduced (or re-introduced) in one of the weakest installments of the entire franchise. But there is another rumor going around that suggests that the 007 codename could be passed on to someone else. According to this rumor, James Bond (Daniel Craig) will no longer hold on to that famous number and it will be passed on to none other than Captain Marvel co-star Lashana Lynch. More on the report here below.
Although Bond 25 had a very long and troubled development, it was still able to landCary Joji Fukunaga as director after Danny Boyle stepped down due to creative differences.
With principal photography for Bond 25 set to begin in just a few short days, Fukunaga has announced the full cast that will appear in the latest chapter of the franchise that will see Daniel Craig return for his fifth and final time as James Bond. Additionally, a plot synopsis has also been shared.
The Snowman Director: Tomas Alfredson Screenwriter: Hossein Amini, Peter Straughan Cast: Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Val Kilmer, Toby Jones, David Dencik, James D’Arcy, J.K. Simmons Distributor: Universal Pictures Rated R | 119 Minutes Release Date: October 20, 2017
A good mystery thriller has us on the edge of our seats and has us convinced we know who the criminal is at some point in the movie only to realize it wasn’t who we thought it was. It builds upon itself with great characters giving more than terrific performances. And it has a story that keeps us engaged for the entire duration.
But Tomas Alfredson‘s adaptation of Jo NesbÃ¸‘s The Snowman is anything but the aforementioned qualities. It is sporadic, horribly paced, and lacks any sort of structure. Instead, we are given a fairly predictable film that feels like it was just piled on top of each other trying to pass itself off as a decent movie. My full review below.
