Over the weekend, James Bond returned to theaters for the 24th time with the release of Spectre. Starring Daniel Craig, who reprises the role of Bond for the fourth time, Spectre hasn’t exactly received favorable reviews from critics or movie-goers. Some reviews have called it an absolute mess, with a few publications going so far as to call it the worst James Bond movie in years. Meanwhile, on Rotten Tomatoes, the film only has a 62% rating, far below the 93% rating Skyfall earned two years ago.
The latest chapter in the James Bond saga unfolds on Friday as the hotly anticipated movie Spectre makes its long-awaited debut in the United States. Of course, there was significantly more hype before a disinterested Daniel Craig seemingly gave up on a productive media tour, but the movie promises to be entertaining and action-packed nevertheless.
With each new Bond film, there are certain things we can always expect. Plenty of action, car chases, explosions, gorgeous cars, beautiful women… and of course, a bunch of great gadgets that help Bond escape even the trickiest of situations. Just how many Q Branch gadgets has James Bond used over the years? A new video lines them all up in chronological order. More →
Huge Spectre spoiler alert: James Bond uses an Android phone, Sony’s Xperia Z5. However, Daniel Craig, who’s been very vocal about what James Bond movies should be like and the significant effort involved in making 007 movies, actually protested against using an Android device in the film because “James Bond only uses the best.” More →
Daniel Craig, who plays James Bond for the fourth time in his career in Spectre, doesn’t sound too thrilled about doing another episode in the famous spy movie saga. He said so himself in an interview recently, although he wasn’t 100% sure he wouldn’t play 007 one more time.
The actor continued his tour promoting Spectre, revealing in an interview with Red Bulletin that James Bond teaches you nothing that can help you in everyday life. In fact, he appears rather disinterested in talking about the new movie. However, Craig revealed various behind-the-scenes 007 secrets during the interview, and fans will definitely appreciate them.

We still have a couple of weeks to wait before Spectre reaches theaters in the United States, but last night, the latest James Bond film premiered in the UK, and the positive reviews have already started pouring in.
If this really is Daniel Craig’s final appearance as the dashing spy, it appears that he’s going out with a bang. Below, we’ve collected quotes from some of the reviews around the web, many of which praise the film specifically for its ability to harken back to Bond films of old while pushing the franchise forward once again.

A new James Bond movie is about to be released, Daniel Craig’s fourth and possibly final appearance in the famous spy saga. As always, you can expect to see plenty of action-packed scenes, high-tech toys, new Bond women and cars. Focusing solely on cars for a moment, Bond will drive a custom Aston Martin DB10 in Spectre that has been designed precisely for this role.
Let’s check it out.
If you ask me, Daniel Craig is the best James Bond ever, but I’ll admit the scripts of his 007 movies might have helped out with that, especially when compared with the older movies. However, the actor, who played Bond for the fourth time in Spectre, just revealed that we might need another Bond, as he’s had it with playing the immensely popular character.
Craig announced in a rather out-of-the-box manner the fact he’s had it with the franchise saying that he’d rather kill himself than do another Bond movie. I’m shaken by the news. Not stirred. Because he’s not 100% sure he’s stopping. More →
In just over a month, James Bond will return to the movie screen. Other than the disaster that was Quantum of Solace, Daniel Craig’s tenure as the smoothest secret agent in the world has been an incredibly successful one — success which director Sam Mendes hopes to replicate with Spectre in November.

This October, the 24th James Bond movie will hit theaters, bringing more spy action, new Bond girls and cars. Trailers so far offered teasers of what’s to come in the Spectre movie, but they’ve left out many plot details — after all, these are just trailers. However, a fresh trailer reveals more details about the troubles 007 will have to deal with in the new film. More →
As far as movie characters go, James Bond is the epitome of elegance and deadly ingenuity. And even though I personally think every incarnation of Bond is no match for Jason Bourne, there’s one aspect to Bond’s personality that even Bourne, or any other action hero for that matter, simply can’t match: Bond’s insatiable appetite for booze.
Throughout the 23 Bond films that have been released thus far, James Bond, in each one, is a man who knows how to enjoy the finer things in life, including a drink or three when the situation calls for it.
The next chapter in the ongoing James Bond saga is easily one of the mostly hotly anticipated movies of 2015. Dubbed Spectre, the film stars Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes, Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux alongside Bond himself, Daniel Craig. We have seen a number of compelling arguments suggesting that Craig ranks among the best Bonds in 007 history, but new rumors suggest his role as the iconic British agent may soon be coming to an end.
