Daniel Craig: 'Skyfall' in Trafalgar Square!

Daniel Craig films scenes for the new James Bond movie, Skyfall, in Trafalgar Square on Saturday (November 19) in London, England.

The 43-year-old British actor reprises his role as 007 in the Sam Mendes-directed flick, which also stars Javier Bardem as the villain.

“It, I think, has all the elements of a classic Bond movie, including, to quell any rumours, a lot of action,” Sam said during a recent press conference.

Though he was tight-lipped on details, Sam shared that British actor Ben Whishaw “will be playing a part I can’t tell you about … and Albert Finney, who will also be playing a part I can tell you nothing about in scenes that I can’t really tell you about and Ralph Fiennes, who, similarly, I can give you very little information about.”

  • Reliance

    “DreamWorks lost nearly $30 million on Cowboys and Aliens, panned severely by critics. Its Fright Night joined the list of underperformers.”

    “Another person familiar with Reliance’s movie operations hinted that there is friction between the company and DreamWorks because of the results so far. Reliance has also ended many deals with stars and is pulling out money from “unviable” contracts, the person said, asking not to be named.

    A Reliance spokesman denied that there is any strain between his company and DreamWorks. “Everything is absolutely fine.” He said though Cowboys and Aliens didn’t do well, it was made up with The Help. The perception that the movie deals are not doing well is wrong, he said.”

  • Meyer

    Hollywood, CA – Mediocre, stunk, crap, sh***y. These are all words used to describe some of Universal’s recent movie releases, though none of them were used by critics or even fans. All of those terms were used by Ron Meyer, the head of the studio which oversaw all the productions, acknowledging what many film lovers had been saying for a long time.

    “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, and we all did a mediocre job with it,” Meyer said of last summer’s flop ‘Cowboys & Aliens’.
    _____

    Mediocre, stunk, crap, sh***y. – Meyer used the right words for C&A, what a pity he didn’t heard what I saidd before filming Cowboys started, haha, never mind at least he spoke about it now.

    Why We Can’t Have Great Movies

    Universal Pictures chief Ron Meyer caused a splash late last week, when he admitted that “we do make a lot of shitty movies,” and listed Land of the Lost, The Wolfman and Cowboys & Aliens among the studio’s clunkers.

    But the really fascinating thing about Meyer’s presentation at the Savannah Film Festival was the insight he gave into why so many movies are crap: there’s a kind of downward spiral where the more movies flop, the more risk-averse the studios become, and the more they make movies that are probably going to flop.

    Meyer’s comments came just before Universal had a bad weekend — Universal’s Eddie Murphy comedy Tower Heist crashed and burned at the box office, being beaten by Puss in Boots. Meyer had been trying to set up a controversial deal to release Tower Heist on Video on Demand just a couple weeks after it hit theaters, and now he must be wishing he’d succeeded.

    Now Tower Heist looks likely to join a long line of recent flops for Universal, including Dream House, The Change-Up, The Thing, Your Highness, Scott Pilgrim, Repo Men, The Wolfman, Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, and many others. If it wasn’t for the Fast & Furious and Fockers franchises plus Despicable Me, Universal would have had a pretty dismal last few years.

    Movie Line’s account of Meyer’s remarks in Savannah is pretty fascinating, and well worth reading in its entirety. Super briefly, here are the highlights:

    1) He goes into the problems with The Wolfman and Cowboys & Aliens, and says Land of the Lost was “just crap.”

    2) He says 3-D only makes sense for a small number of movies, like the otherwise-unappealing Journey to the Center of the Earth 3-D.

    3) Says that the projects he recently killed, The Dark Tower and At the Mountains of Madness, were just too risky.

    4) Says almost nobody can afford to do what James Cameron did with Avatar, and he’s proud of A Beautiful Mind — but he wouldn’t do it again because he’d rather make money than make critically acclaimed award bait.

    What’s interesting is the innate contradiction there — Meyer says, on the one hand, that he hates the fact that his studio puts out shitty movies like Land of the Lost and The Wolfman, or mediocre movies like Cowboys & Aliens. On the other hand, he says that aiming too high, with potentially brilliant projects like Dark Tower, Mountains of Madness, or something visually ambitious like Avatar, is too risky. And he wouldn’t do Beautiful Mind again.

    So Meyer wants movies that are better than Cowboys and Aliens, but not as good as A Beautiful Mind. Not mediocre, just not great. (What’s in between mediocre and great? I think the answer to that question would be worth a billion dollars in Hollywood.)

    Let’s just state the obvious — Meyer wouldn’t be apologizing for Cowboys and Aliens and Land of the Lost if they had made money. If Land of the Lost had been a runaway hit, he’d be talking about how Land of the Lost 2 was going to be a lot of fun.

    It also seems likely that Universal’s recent box office misfortunes have made the studio more risk-averse. Meyer says that Dark Tower and Mountains of Madness were both going to be super-expensive films that might not make enough money back. That calculation might have turned out the same way regardless, but it might be easier to justify a big outlay for a couple of prestige projects if the last several gambles had paid off.
    —————————————
    Some fans here were excited about The Dark Tower and Meyer said this project isn’t greenlighted at all.

  • to 22 – old or new, no matter

    Hey, first of all, no matter if news is old or new but it just confirmed the things that I said about Cowboys and Dream House before and that some people, expecially executives and head of the studio, themselves got to sense finally. I am glad that all people working in the film industry now are more careful, learned that famous names have no effect on a film and box office. Some fans were excited that Dream House will be directed by Oscar director Sheridan but I wasn’t impressed by his status because I knew it won’t help to the movie. I wasn’t impressed by names like Favreau, Ford and Craig who were involved in Cowboys&Aliens while fans were too excited and in the end they let Cowboys fail financially. Now the head of Universal said the same and I think most of producers won’t too much trust in big names and maybe there will be more space for more talented and unknown actors. I noticed that Dragon Tattoo is still post-production and they plan to release the movie next month so hopefully all is doing well with Fincher but somehow I doubt, like in the case of Dream House and Cowboys.

    Rachel Weisz: ‘I’m still a blushing bride’ – It’s been a year of high drama for the actress Rachel Weisz. A whirlwind romance with Daniel Craig and half a dozen films have certainly kept her busy.
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/film/starsandstories/8884891/Rachel-Weisz-Im-still-a-blushing-bride.html
    (QUOTE)

    Rachel Weisz is talking about the nature of romantic love.
    ‘Is it heroic to follow your heart, to fall so deeply in love that you don’t have a choice?’ she asks over dinner at a bustling Moroccan restaurant in New York.
    We’re on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, close to the home she shares with Daniel Craig and her five-year-old son, Henry (from her relationship with the director Darren Aronofsky).
    -
    Weisz herself may have chosen the heart over the head.
    Twelve months ago she split up with Darren Aronofsky, her partner of nine years; soon after that it was revealed that she was seeing Daniel Craig, who had split up with his long-term fiancé, Satsuki Mitchell.
    Weisz and Craig were married in June this year. But she won’t discuss their relationship with me.
    Prior to Aronofsky (who directed Black Swan) the actress had relationships with Neil Morrissey and Sam Mendes and has been quite open about her personal life in the past.
    Her current reticence, I suspect, is influenced by the notoriously private Craig.
    ‘I’m sorry,’ she says with a smile, ‘I’m a newly wed, I’m still a blushing bride and it’s really private. I can’t tell you anything. Come back to me later.’
    It is obvious, however, that Rachel Weisz is a woman in love. As she walks towards me striding past cafés, book shops and an ‘Asian Bodywork’ health centre, the spring in her step is plain to see.
    She looks radiant, casually dressed in black Earnest Sewn jeans, boots and a black Margiela T-shirt, with her long hair flowing and a dazzling smile lighting up her face.
    We find a table in the back of the restaurant with its tiled tables, brick walls, Moroccan lamps and jars full of lentils.
    She’s wearing a chunky Rolex and a simple, delicate wedding ring. ‘No engagement ring,’ she says.
    She orders chicken tajine, couscous and salad, refusing wine because she’s shooting a scene for her next movie, The Bourne Legacy, at 3am tomorrow.
    She rolls her eyes, adding. ‘I do drink wine. I read that I wasn’t drinking alcohol because I was pregnant. It’s not true.’
    Would she like another baby?
    ‘Absolutely no comment. Oh my Lord, I was asked that recently by a journalist and I think I said, “You never know,” and it was turned into something else entirely. I’m not complaining. I am just realising that anything I say…’
    She runs her fingers through her hair and sighs.
    Craig and Weisz reportedly became close while filming Jim Sheridan’s new thriller, Dream House, which opens next week. They play a married couple who move to the country and discover that their new home is haunted.
    Unsurprisingly, there is great chemistry between the pair. ‘I really enjoyed working with him,’ says Weisz.
    ‘We have actually known each other a long time, since our early twenties,’ she adds, explaining that they performed together back then in Les Grandes Horizontales, produced by the experimental theatre group Talking Tongues, which she co-founded at Cambridge University.
    ‘He is a very good actor,’ she says. At which point she puts down a forkful of couscous, looks me squarely in the eye and we both dissolve into laughter.
    Weisz has a loud infectious laugh and a sense of humour, but she is not the easiest person to interview.
    When I ask a question, it is often parried with another question: do you think what women want from a relationship changes as they get older?
    ‘What do you think?’
    Readers are interested in your views not mine – I’m writing a profile piece about you.
    ‘What’s expected in a profile?’
    She can also be a bit evasive, worried about words being taken out of context. I ask whether, in her view, children benefit from mothers who have fulfilling careers.
    ‘I don’t want to make a sweeping statement,’ she sighs. ‘I once said that in the last trimester of my pregnancy I had a glass of red wine; it turned into me supposedly saying pregnant women should drink.’
    -
    Any tips from her impressively ripped husband? ‘We’ve been to the gym together but we do very different training,’ she says, laughing.
    Beyond that, she can’t reveal anything about the film. ‘Believe it or not, I can talk about Bourne as much as I can talk about my marriage!’
    And with that Rachel Weisz gets up to leave, heading home to the spy who loves her, her secrets safe.

    Rooney Mara tuffa tid efter inspelningen i Sverige

    Rooney Mara tough time after the recording in Sweden
    Rooney Mara can not think of Naomi Rapace – the pressure becomes too great.
    And the U.S. version of Lisbeth Salander is suffering from vitamin D deficiency after the time in Sweden, she says in an interview with P4 premiere:
    - It was too dark and cold for me, says Mara of Sweden.

    On 21 December it is time for Rooney Mara, 26, to prove themselves in the role of Lisbeth Salander in “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”.
    As early as the evening rolls a huge PR machinery in motion in Sweden. For three days, American and director David Fincher film market facing a massive media posse.
    Have felt great pressure

    The press has been great for the actress, partly because of Naomi Rapace, 31, role performance in the Swedish films.
    - As soon as I knew I got the role, that I would play that I released all that. It had been too overwhelming, says Rooney Mara on ideas about Rapace in an interview with P4 premiere.

    The recording, which largely took place in Sweden, was also tough for Mara.
    - It was too dark and cold for me. I have a lack of vitamin D after having been in Sweden throughout the years, she continues to tell.
    For a long time in Sweden

    She believes that it was necessary to experience the Swedish winter in order to do the role.
    - I am so happy to have been there. I have read books and saw all the sites that participate in them. I do not think you can understand the character if you do not spend a winter in Sweden, says Rooney Mara on to P4 premiere.
    Together with Daniel Craig, 43, who plays Mikael Blomkvist, she has also had to struggle to acquire Swedish accent. She also says the radio station:

    - It was definitely difficult because there is a Swedish accent. Some sounds British, other Swedish. We got to choose how we wanted it to sound, says Mara who believe that Hollywood’s film will draw more audience even to the books and Swedish films.
    “Earnings for All”

    - There is enough profit for everyone. It gives more attention to books and to the Swedish films. More will probably see them now.

    Daniel said, “Mikael Blomkvist is not a bullshitter. That’s why he’s so appealing. He’s flawed. He’s an egotist. But he has very strong moral centre.”
    Zoom in on an image, Rooney mentioned Daniel.
    “I’d never met him before, and I hate to admit it but I hadn’t seen any of the James Bond film. But of course I knew who he was. I’m not someone gets starstruck, but it helped that he was down to earth and a really great guy. I never uncomfortable at the screen test or when we made the movie. He’s been through everything, and he’s such an amazing actor. I had to experience new things, so it was great to have someone there who has been through a lot.”

    WTF?! Runtime will be 152 min? It’s the same runtime as the Swedish version. How disappointing! I’m nervous it may lack the creation of an allusive feeling. I thought the Swedish version lacked in many important scenes and an allusive feeling. In the book, it left the reader with an allusive feeling. The book suggests that one should not forget about the performance which has been done, and should linger depth to the performance. Oh well, wait and see…..

  • Runtime

    The extended version of the Swedish movie had a run time of 176 and wasn’t better than the theatrical cut. It’s not a question of run time, it’s a question of being able to tell a story in a proper way. I’m not concerned in the slightest that Fincher will just do that: Tell the story in proper way.
