Two weeks after the production’s last update, Sam Mendes offers another behind-the-scenes look at Spectre– the 24th entry in EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Sony Pictures Entertainment’s James Bond franchise in a new video blog that teases the plot!
“The reasons I’m doing the second Bond movie are the reasons I would do any movie, really, which is all to do with the story. And in this movie, SPECTRE, what you have is a movie entirely driven by Bond. He is on a mission from the very beginning.”
SPECTRE begins when a cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alike, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
In addition, Mendes also teases Daniel Craig’s James Bond internal crisis that he’ll be facing!
“It’s about whether or not to pursue the life he’s always pursued. Whether he matters and is he going to continue or not. And you’re going to have to come to see the movie to find out whether he does.”
Also starring Léa Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, Andrew Scott and Rory Kinnear.
SPECTRE hits theaters November 6.
Riley Keough (Magic Mike, upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road) has joined Starz’s The Girlfriend Experience, an upcoming 13-part anthology series inspired by Steven Soderbergh’s 2009 film of the same name.
In the film, THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE explores the relationships between the exclusive courtesans and their clients, for whom they provide far more than just sex. Soderbergh will be executive producing alongside Philip Fleishman.
Keough will play Christine Reade, a law student at the University of Chicago and an intern at a prestigious law firm, who is intrigued when a friend introduced her to the world of transactional relationships. Attracted by the rush of control and easy money, Christine has to confront her own conflicting identities. She learns to navigate and manipulate the big personalities in both worlds to get what she wants, in the process becoming a quasi-lover and confidant to men who are willing to pay richly for her time, offering a service known as a GFE (Girlfriend Experience).
The scripted anthology series will feature 13 half-hour episodes, which will be written and directed by independent filmmakers Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz.

Check out the very first clip that Walt Disney Studios has released for their upcoming live-action, Cinderella, directed by Academy Award nominee Kenneth Branagh, which can be seen down below!
The film stars Lily James in the title role, Cate Blanchett, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Derek Jacobi, Richard Madden, Stellan Skarsgard and Helena Bonham Carter.
Cinderella follows the fortunes of young Ella (James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new Stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia ( Grainger) and Drisella ( McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family.
Soon, she is forced to become their servant, disrespected, covered in ashes and spitefully renamed Cinderella. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her, and she continues to remain positive, determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.”
When Ella meets a dashing stranger in the woods, unaware that he is really the Prince (Madden) and not merely Kit, an apprentice at the palace, she believes she has finally found a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the King (Jacobi) summons all maidens in the kingdom to attend a royal ball at the palace, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit. Alas, her Stepmother forbids her to attend and callously destroys her dress.
Meanwhile, the calculating Grand Duke (Skarsgard) devises a plan to thwart the Prince’s hopes of reuniting with Ella and enlists the support of the devious Stepmother. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand. Soon, a kindly beggar woman (Bonham Carter) steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin, a few mice and a magic wand, changes Cinderella’s life forever.
Cinderella hits theaters March 13.
Gone Girl star Rosamund Pike has joined Christian Bale and director James Mangold’s Travis McGee’s upcoming adaption, The Deep Blue Good-by.
Based on the first book in John D. MacDonald’s popular mystery of the same name, it was published in 1964 and is described as the following:
Travis McGee is a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He’s also a knight-errant who’s wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: He’ll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half.
McGee isn’t particularly strapped for cash, but how can anyone say no to Cathy, a sweet backwoods girl who’s been tortured repeatedly by her manipulative ex-boyfriend Junior Allen? What Travis isn’t anticipating is just how many women Junior has torn apart and left in his wake. Enter Juniors latest victim, Lois Atkinson.
Frail and broken, Lois can barely get out of bed when Travis finds her, let alone keep herself alive. But Travis turns into Mother McGee, giving Lois new life as he looks for the ruthless man who steals women spirits and livelihoods. But he can’t guess how violent his quest is soon to become. He’ll learn the hard way that there must be casualties in this game of cat and mouse.
Dennis LeHane, the author responsible for novels like Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone and Shutter Island, has provided the most recent screenplay adaption with earlier drafts having arrived from Kario Salem and Dana Stevens.
Check out the first full trailer that has been released from writer/director Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young, which can be seen down below!
The film stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as Josh and Cornelia Srebnick, a happily married middle-aged members of New York’s creative class. They tried to start a family and were unable to— and have decided they’re okay with that. But as Josh labors over the umpteenth edit of his cerebral new film, it’s plain that he has hit a dry patch and that something is still missing.
Enter Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried) a free-spirited young couple, who are spontaneous and untethered, ready to drop everything in pursuit of their next passion– retro board games one day, acquiring a pet chicken the next. For Josh, it’s as if a door has opened back to his youth– or a youth he wishes he once had. It’s not long before the restless forty-smeothings, Josh and Cornelia, throw aside friends their own age— including Beastie Boy Adam Horowitz in a sly supporting role– to trail after these young hipsters who seem so plugged in, so uninhibited, so Brooklyn cool. “Before we met”, Josh admits to Jamie, “the only two feelings I had left were wistful and disdainful”. But is this new inspiration enough to sustain collaboration and friendship with a couple twenty years their junior?
A24 will release the film in a limited release starting March 27 with plans to expand shortly thereafter.
