One of the most important parts of Daniel Craig’s time in the James Bond series is the way has evolved ever-so-slightly from a thug with a licence to kill into a man who knows when not to kill. Another is the way that we’re getting to see bits and pieces of Bond’s life the way they’ve formed the man.
Spectre brings Bond into conflict with the titular group, but even more, with its head, Franz Oberhauser – a man who has been thought dead for decades. To make things even more significant – and personal – the two know each other from when Bond was a boy.
If you didn’t catch Game Three of the NBA Finals last night, there’s a good chance you missed this lovely, tension-packed teaser for James Bond #24, Spectre – and I don’t care what name he’s using, Christoph Waltz’s villain is Blofeld (a stinkweed by any other name…).
Check it out after the jump. Spectre explodes into theaters November 6th.
Big Eyes is not exactly the kind of movie you might expect from Tim Burton, being based on the true story of artist Margaret Keane (Amy Adams) who created the famous series of paintings of doe-eyed subjects and her husband Walter (Christoph Waltz), whose marketing savvy made them a phenomenon in the ‘50s and ‘60s.
With a filmography that has never slipped over into the normal, Big Eyes may be the most unexpected film of Burton’s career. It will open on December 25th. Check out the trailer after he jump.
We all know that Quentin Tarantino is an audacious filmmaker. If there’s a genre of filmmaking that he loves, he will produce his take on it at some point – and he really, really loves spaghetti westerns. For his version of a spaghetti western, though, he doesn’t just explode the conventions of the genre – he does for slavery what he did for World War II in Inglourious Basterds. The result is seriously bloody fun.
