Can’t say I saw this coming. Sam Mendes goes from James Bond to James Peach?
Sam Mendes directed the last two James Bond movies. And whatever the problems with the plot one may have (even I fucking hated Spectre), they were unflinchingly gorgeous. So it’s with a heavy heart that I announce he’s leaving the franchise. Along with, it seems, Daniel Craig. But bring on Tom Hiddleston! But bring on another talented director, please!
Decent enough trailer. Stand CraigBond fare. I’m excited for the movie. Only complaint? There’s a moment in the trailer with some shockingly crap-ass CGI. Like, just sort of, “this can’t really be?” Anyways — whatever. I’m a BondMark. I’m there.
Ya’ll want a look at Jimmy Bond in Spectre, looking dumb as fuck wearing silly goggle-glasses? Check it out! Want more? Well, you’re in luck. Here is a Behind the Scenes video for you.
Here’s a whole fucking panoply of news regarding the next Jimmy Bond flick. It’s dropping next November 6, its title is Spectre, and its cast is tremendous.
In a world of ever-expansive media hype, it takes more and more to garner the ocular-mush plates of us pop culture whores. We must be herded, constantly, like fucking goats. So it’s come down to this, and I’m wallowing in it like a pig and shit: announcements that announcements are coming.
Say what you will about Skyfall, I think we can at least agree it was fucking beautiful. So when word came out that cinematographer Roger Deakins wouldn’t return for Bond 24, frowns were understandable. However! Perhaps dry those tears, folks. ‘Cause a wonderful replacement has been found.
Someone must have mashed-up some of my anti-anxiety meds, and put them in Sam Mendes’ mashed potatoes. The good sir has gone from being like “I want to puke when I think about directing another Bond” to likely helming the next two installments.
