Rian Johnson and Daniel Craig are making a murder mystery inspired by Agatha Christie

Now that Rian Johnson’s disrupted the Force of Star Wars fans with his excellent The Last Jedi, the filmmaker is now preparing to piss off yet another fanbase: Agatha Christie loyalists. Deadline reports that Johnson has recruited Daniel Craig for a contemporary murder mystery entitled Knives Out. The original script…

Kings imagines the 1992 Los Angeles riots as a mess of racism, weird sex dreams, and slapstick

C+

Mixing constant clatter and spasmodic camera movements with a comic strip’s manic pace, Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s Kings at least earns points for avoiding the predictable pitfalls of a drama set against an episode of relatively recent American history. The backdrop is the Rodney King verdict and the Los Angeles riots of…

James Bond's car is up for auction (though it's technically just Daniel Craig's car)

Though he’s a fictional character, James Bond is a man with very famous tastes. He likes his martinis shaken and not stirred, he like his swimming trunks very small and tight, and he likes his cars to be Aston Martins—unless he happens to have a product placement deal with, say, BMW. Sadly, most normal people don’t…

Happy Fucksgiving: Daniel Craig confirms he’ll be back for at least one more Bond film

In the end, it turned out that Daniel Craig really did give a fuck after all; after years of dodging, shrugging, and claiming that, if he came back to the part, it would only be “for the money,” Craig confirmed tonight on Late Show With Stephen Colbert that he’ll be back for at least one more turn as international…

Casino Royale thrillingly rebooted James Bond for the grim-and-gritty era

When I started this column, I decided that the modern action movie began with Bullitt in 1968. But a strong case—maybe a stronger case—could also be made that the genre starts with 1962’s Dr. No, the first James Bond movie. The Bond movies essentially turned the action movie into a formula before it was even really a…

Channing Tatum and Adam Driver pull a NASCAR heist in this trailer for Logan Lucky

Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s movies were all basically about how cool and charming A-list Hollywood stars are, but this trailer for his new heist movie Logan Lucky looks almost like a direct rejection of all of that George Clooney style. For starters, it centers on two brothers (played by Channing Tatum and a one-armed…

Today Daniel Craig officially becomes the second-longest-tenured James Bond

The future of the James Bond series remains uncertain, with actors ranging from Idris Elba to Gugu Mbatha-Raw rumored to take over the role. (We’ve suggested a couple possibilities already ourselves. Steve Buscemi can do anything, right?) It’s certainly time for a left turn, or at least a move away from “traditionally…

Bond producers still want Daniel Craig despite his general lack of fucks

Daniel Craig spent the Spectre press tour acting actively disinterested in the legendary character he was portraying, but according to a BBC report his ’tude hasn’t dissuaded the Bond producers from wanting him to return for another go as James Bond. Callum McDougall—who has executive produced all of Craig’s Bond…

It’s Rumor Time: Daniel Craig’s weighing a $150 million offer for two more Bond films

It’s well known around these parts that Daniel Craig isn’t exactly keen on doing another Bond film, which is is to say that he has hardly the fucks to give anymore. After making four Bond movies, the actor can barely rouse the necessary fuck-giving to chime in on the great debate of who should succeed him in the role,…

Daniel Craig, Halle Berry to star in a movie that has nothing to do with James Bond

The amount of fucks that Daniel Craig gives (none) has been well documented over the past couple years. After Spectre, he said he’d rather slash his wrists with glass than make another James Bond movie, and he certainly had zero fucks to give about who might play Bond after him. His fucks cannot be bought either. It’s…
