Why Billie Eilish’s Bond Theme Is One Of The Best In Ages

Why Billie Eilish’s Bond Theme Is One Of The Best In Ages
Being asked to write and perform a theme song for a James Bond movie is a double-edged sword for an artist. The upsides of it are obvious. You get exposure on a grander scale than you could ever possibly have imagined, and your work becomes immortal. Bond movies are repeated every week on television somewhere in the world, and an audience of millions love them. The songs become part of the movie, and so long as the movies keep playing – which they almost certainly always will – you’ll always be remembered.

The other side of the sword is that you’re on a pedestal the moment you record a Bond theme, and it’s easier than ever to throw things at you and try to knock you off. Nobody in history has written a Bond theme that everybody’s been happy with. Sam Smith’s breathy ‘The Writing’s On

Amazon Prime Video New Releases: April 2020

Amazon Prime Video New Releases: April 2020
Welcome to an April that’s sure to be unlike any other. Usually this time of year means getting outdoors in the nice weather or catching a baseball game or two. Obviously 2020 had different plans for us all. Now Amazon Prime has unveiled its new releases for April 2020 to give us an idea of what indoor entertainment options we have.

April 2020 is pretty thin on original series for Amazon Prime. Thankfully two of the few launches are big ones. Sci-fi anthology series Tales from the Loop launches on April 3 and looks to be quite bingeable. Amazon Prime is no stranger to sci-fi anthologies thanks to Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams but this one seems to kick it up a notch. Arriving on April 17 is the sixth season of Bosch as well.

April 1 sees the mass availability of a new crop of stock films for the service. Notable options include

5 James Bond Movies That Are Overrated (& 5 That Are Underrated)

5 James Bond Movies That Are Overrated (& 5 That Are Underrated)
Determining the best James Bond movie often depends on which actor you like playing 007: tough rascal Sean Connery, unruffled gentlemen Roger Moore, blow-dried Pierce Brosnan, or battered brute Daniel Craig - or even dimple-chinned George Lazenby or Shakespearean Timothy Dalton.

Despite their star and historical lack of political-correctness, some Bond movies still live up to the hype, such as Goldfinger, For Your Eyes Only, and Tomorrow Never Dies (i.e. the one with Michelle Yeoh). On the other hand, poor showings like The Man with the Golden Gun and A View to a Kill will never get better. That being said, some Bond films are massively underrated, and others are the complete opposite.

Amazon Prime Video is out with its list of everything new coming in November, and it includes the Amazon Original movie “The Report” starring Adam Driver and Annette Bening, coming Nov. 29.

Based on a true story, “The Report” is described as following idealistic staffer Daniel J.

Book Review: "When Harry Met Cubby: The Story Of The James Bond Producers" By Robert Sellers (The History Press)

  • CinemaRetro
By Tim Greaves

In 1981, ITV screened a celebration of the premiere of For Your Eyes Only from the Odeon Leicester Square. I vividly recall my exclamation of surprise at spotting a familiar face in a shot of the crowded foyer – “That’s Harry Saltzman!” Yet as the programme continued and no mention was made of his presence I began to doubt myself. After all, he and his Bond movie co-producer Albert “Cubby” Broccoli had fallen out some years earlier, so it would be unlikely he’d be there; I must have been mistaken. It was some time later that I learned it had indeed been Harry, invited by Cubby upon the suggestion by one of the film’s stars, Chaim Topol, that he extend an olive branch to his old partner. It would be fair to say that the working relationship between the two men was a tempestuous one. Theirs

No Time to Die Poster Has James Bond Dressed to Kill One Last Time

  • MovieWeb
We've got our first poster for No Time to Die. This is the 25th (official) entry in the James Bond franchise overall and the fifth and final in Daniel Craig's run. While we're still waiting on some footage, MGM and Eon Productions did reveal this one-sheet over the weekend, which brings back Craig's 007 in fashion. Though, tragically, it doesn't offer too many clues regarding what's to come in this latest adventure.

The poster was revealed over the weekend as part of James Bond Day. It features the famed MI6 spy dressed to the nines in a dapper tuxedo. Daniel Craig is standing next to a blue wall, with a gate or fence in the background, with the No Time to Die title, in throwback lettering, on the center of the poster. It's also worth pointing out that the 007 logo on the poster is in gold, which could be viewed

James Bond 25 Teaser Announces Official Title: No Time to Die

The first teaser for James Bond 25 has arrived. It doesn't carry with it any actual footage from the upcoming entry in the long-running spy series. It does, however, finally confirm the movie's title. We now know James Bond will return in No Time to Die. After months, if not years, of speculating and supposed leaks of the title, it seems nobody got it right, even if some got pretty close. In any event, we now know what to call Craig's final outing os 007.

The teaser features Daniel Craig's Bond strutting in a tuxedo to the classic theme, before the camera pulls away to slowly reveal the title, which is done in a very 70s style. The whole thing is black and white, save for the gold 007 logo. A sly reference to The Man With the Golden Gun perhaps? In any event, the caption provided with the teaser on social media is also telling,

Is Captain Marvel’s Lashana Lynch Playing The New James Bond?

The 25th James Bond film, which is currently in the midst of what’s apparently a pretty chaotic production, will likely be Daniel Craig’s last outing as Britain’s iconic super spy. With the actor’s retirement looming, fans are beginning to place bets on just who might pick up the license to kill next, dropping names like Henry Cavill or Charlize Theron as potential replacements.

And while it’ll probably be a while yet before we get an official announcement on who the next 007 will be, a new theory from ScreenRant suggests that it could be Bond 25 star Lashana Lynch, who you may know from her role as Maria Rambeau in this year’s Captain Marvel.

In the upcoming action flick, she’ll be playing a character named Nomi, though we’ve been told next to nothing about how she’ll be involved just yet. However, what ScreenRant

‘Bond 25’ Will See Return Of ‘Spectre’ 007 Girl Lea Seydoux

Of course, her role is more complicated than that: Swann is the daughter of Mr. White, who is connected to Spectre org boss Franz Oberhauser. She is arguably the first Bond girl to reprise a role in a picture since Maud Adams who played different characters (i.e. Andrea Anders in 1974’s The Man With The Golden Gun; the title character in 1983’s Octopussy in 1983 and she made a cameo in A View to a Kill.
