What's with the name?

Daniel Craig


Police Mistake Celebrity Impersonator Photoshoot for Armed Criminal Enterprise

Even though the Port of London Authority only requires artists to register if they plan to be filming, not merely taking photos, the organizers of a celebrity look-a-like photoshoot are saying that, in hindsight, they probably should have. Turns out people jump to conclusions when they see a bunch of black-clad people waving guns around on a speedboat.

Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Sequel Could Ditch Daniel Craig, Feature Female Lead Instead

What’s Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy without Mikael Blomkvist? Sony hopes it’s a wildly successful film sequel starring a women in the lead role. They’ve got our attention.

Judi Dench’s Filthy Mouth and Other Silly Complaints About Movies by British People

While we wouldn’t be surprised to see similar, or even weirder complaints from our fellow Yanks here in the U.S. of A., a new collection of complaints by British filmgoers is just adorably prudish and random. Compiled by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), which deals directly with costumer complaints concerning movie certificate ratings, a list of the silliest gripes received by the association includes problems with what people look like, what things look like, the words people say, and the price of popcorn. Which, no, Virginia, has nothing to do with rating certificates. So, come with us after the jump to read more about how many British people have a problem every time Dame Judi Dench uses a naughty word!


And Now For Something Completely Different

Ben Whishaw Is the New Q In the Next James Bond Movie

The next Bond film, Skyfall, will feature a new gadget man helping the iconic spy. Ben Whishaw, who currently appears in the BBC‘s The Hour, will be taking over the role of Q in the new movie, making him the youngest actor to do so and the first time Q has been younger than Bond himself. This will probably not, however, cramp Bond’s style. (Because he is James Bond.)


Highly Successful Marketing Strategies

Universal Studios President: “We Make a Lot of S#!?&y Movies.”

In a moment of strange honesty, Ron Meyer, President and Chief Operating Officer of Universal Studios not only admitted but declared that Universal Studios has made some real duds. Among a number of movies, he has harsh words for Cowboys & Aliens.

Wasn’t good enough. Forget all the smart people involved in it, it wasn’t good enough. All those little creatures bouncing around were crappy. I think it was a mediocre movie.

Wow. It’s not that we disagree, it’s just that… Look how sad he made Daniel Craig.


Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

DC’s Vertigo To Make Stieg Larsson’s Millenium Trilogy Into Graphic Novels

DC Entertainment has acquired the rights to Stieg Larsson’s best-selling Millenium Trilogy. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest will all be adapted into graphic novels via DC’s Vertigo imprint.

Idris Elba Might Be In the Running to Be the Next James Bond

Daniel Craig is getting ready to shoot his third movie as James Bond soon, but people are now wondering how much longer he’ll be playing the iconic British spy. A few names have been floated around as possibilities, such as Michael Fassbender (last seen in X-Men: First Class) and Henry Cavill (who is already playing one iconic role in Man of Steel), but one name that is creating tons of buzz is that of Idris Elba. And if you have working eyeballs, you might notice that one of these guys is not like the other. Is the world ready for a black James Bond?


Oh Really?

Smurfs and Cowboys & Aliens Tie At the Box Office

In a battle between tiny blue cartoon creatures and, well, cowboys and aliens, it’s a draw! Both movies each made about $36.2 million, with The Smurfs exceeding expectations. (Because it’s a CGI Smurfs movie, Neil Patrick Harris notwithstanding.) However, the Smurfs’ success kind of spells failure for Cowboys & Aliens, “to the point of tanking,” according to Deadline. And now Sony is all “See? People like the Smurfs! We knew this!” The lesson? Don’t underestimate the power of kids at the box office. Again, something we probably knew.


We Have Done the Impossible and That Makes Us Mighty

Jon Favreau Gets Harrison Ford to Sit Down For an Interview [Video]

Notoriously interview-averse Harrison Ford has delighted us all by granting his Cowboys and Aliens director Jon Favreau a seven-part interview ahead of the release of their movie. In the clips we’ve selected for your viewing pleasure, Ford and Favs discuss hats, improvising for George Lucas, and what happens when Ford reads a science fiction script. (Hint: be glad the script doesn’t feel pain.) There also may or may not have been a promise — by Ford — to make a naughty film with co-star Daniel Craig.
