  • Guinness

    Truthfully, not lying here.
    THIS IS MY FAVORITE outfit of his–of course, if he just has to wear clothes (poke in the ribs to you Mendel). I could care less about all those stupid Tom F’s he wears–the tuxes, the white and matching-his-eyes-blue shirts, the silver, shiney pants that accentuate his sea cucumeber–jeevus I can’t type, and not even the blue speedo skimpy things, well…….on second and third thought…..
    Absolutely fukingfantasticallyorgasmic are those “sweats”. And, ah, I had those NIKE’s in the 1980′s, however, we all know how hip and fashionally conscious Dan is, so all the posh Brits got to be wearing them, eh, Mendel? eh? hoodies were called sweatshirts with a hood, and he wears it soooo freeking well.
    so, there is no frontal shot of him sin theis pants? crap. i love that he is getting into a landrover too. He can be a rover all over me. wheww…

    THANKYOU for posting and wearing your comfy outfit I love dan.

    oh, yeah, congrats, you knew you could do it, you got people to believe you could do it, you worked out 4 hours a day, you succumbed to pain and surgeries for the role, you traveled and still travel to obscure places that put your blood vessels in jeopardy, not to mention allergy issues??, and missing your family. all for this–to win. and you did.

    an inspiration. so much for keeping more private. good luck with that AGAIN.

    Daniel’s amazingly nice a*s and and great thighs!! Funny, because he needs to pull his socks up though.

  • jaine

    God knows why, an apalling dirge of a fiml. Pointless Bond girls just there for the sex and no other reason, slow plot build up, and embarassing pointless inclusion of poetry. As for the traincrash, where were the passengers at rush hour in London. Don’t believe the hype!!!

    Thank you for your opinion. next time it would be nice if you warned other readers of spoilers, even if they’re minor. After all, some here in North America have not seen the film yet.

  • mary

    I’m happy that the film is breaking records in Great Britain. But some of those who went to the film were successful in recording Skyfall. According to my friends, down loaded copies started showing up here in North America on October 31.

  • OMG

    @jaine: LOL. You are shallow.. You never have seen the movie, only the trailer!

  • Sophie

    I wish I was Rachel Weisz, Daniel is too AMAAAAZING!! LIFE IS SO UNFAIR

  • Lynn

    Wowser- Skyfall is absolutely incredible. It was completely blown away, Sam Mendes has done an outstanding job! Daniel nailed it again, made 007 his own in this very British Bond. Very very smart all the way through. Must see again!

    Skyfall: Apparently the Vatican Loves the New James Bond Film
    I am filled with deep emotion at the fact. You remember Christian groups were boycotting ‘The Golden Compass’? Saying ‘Skyfall’ is “more human, capable of being moved and of crying: in a word, more real.” Wow!

  • Rachel Girl

    Rachel and Daniel are such a beautiful couple inside and out and I enjoyed getting to know them!

  • Mendel

    Excellent! What a great film – I’m glad it is breaking records!

    Hi Guinness

    “THIS IS MY FAVORITE outfit of his–of course, if he just has to wear clothes (poke in the ribs to you Mendel)”

    Hahahaha, you know I prefer his birthday suit *grin*

    “so, there is no frontal shot of him sin theis pants? crap”

    Yes, that’s really unfortunate… ;)

    “you got people to believe you could do it, you worked out 4 hours a day, you succumbed to pain and surgeries for the role”

    Yes, great determination, and stiff upper lip (yes, stiff, Guinness… :)

    “so much for keeping more private”

    Woah, I so misread this one, I thought you mentioned privates…

    You have another week to wait for Skyfall. It’ll be so worth it!!! Can’t wait to hear what you have to say about it!!!

  • Berenice joins Malick’s movie
    Bond Girl Berenice Marlohe Joins Terrence Malick’s Latest All-Star Drama (Exclusive)
    The French actress will star alongside Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender and Natalie Portman.

    Skyfall Bond girl Berenice Marlohe has joined the all-star cast of Terrence Malick’s latest movie, which is in production in Austin.
    The untitled movie revolves around two intersecting love triangles, obsession and betrayal, set against the music scene. It stars Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Michael Fassbender, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Natalie Portman.
    The details of her character are being kept under wraps.
    This is second major English-language role for the French actress, who co-stars opposite Daniel Craig in Skyfall as the enigmatic Severine. The movie opens Nov. 9 in North America but already is shattering records internationally.
    And while many Bond girls fade into acting obscurity or fall into second-class flicks after making a 007 splash, Marlohe and her agents at ICM Partners are making sure the actress surrounds herself with top-flight talent as she uses the Bond movie as a launching pad for an international career.
    Marlohe will shoot the Malick film concurrently with the ongoing press tour for Skyfall.

    So, Mendel, ask Dan if he will endorse Obama–just wear a sticker or pin? And is he over the pond yet?? Say some words for us–this tues. we vote. And then friday I go to see a 3-4 storey Bond!!!! yey!

  • Guinness

    Where did you get Dan’s upcoming schedule for TV promo’s for NYC?
    It has to be amended and has it been “released”.

    And the gala, I am sure has already been discussed here, there, and everywhere, but really, the day after Thanksgiving? wow. bummer, he may have to get his pilots license soon.( I believe I will be celebrating Guinness that day.) Grueling air flight.

    “Say some words for us–this tues. we vote.”

    My friends and I did some supportive ‘Obama’ chanting tonight (with some very interesting lyrics, lol) – we’re all watching this election with crossed fingers and legs ;)

    “Mendel can hold the oil”

    Do you think I would hold back??? *grin*

    That would even make me run fast…!

  • Skyfall earns $287M in 10 days

    Foreign Box Office: ‘Skyfall’ Earns Massive $287 Million in First 10 Days
    The 23rd installment in the James Bond film franchise earned $156 million for the weekend; the movie begins rolling out in North America on Nov. 8.

    James Bond pic Skyfall continues to make history at the international box office, grossing $287 million in its first 10 days of play.
    The Sony and MGM movie — directed by Sam Mendes and returning Daniel Craig in the role of 007 — took in a massive $157 million over the weekend as it expanded into additional territories.
    So far, Skyfall has grossed $139 million for Sony and $17 million for MGM’s foreign distribution partners.
    With the success of Skyfall, Sony Pictures Releasing International is now having a record year, with revenues of $2.16 billion through Sunday. Sony’s previous best year internationally was $2.14 billion in 2009.
    Worldwide, Sony titles have generated $3.6 billion in ticket sales so far for the year, putting the studios on course to reach a record $4 billion.
    Skyfall, which begins opening in North America on Nov. 8, is pacing well ahead of Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale in most markets.
    Skyfall debuted to $23.9 million in Germany over the weekend, the biggest opening of 2012. It opened to $7.9 in Italy and $6.7 million in Spain, the second best opening of the year after The Impossible. Switzerland turned in a record-breaking $5.3 million, the biggest debut of all time (Quantum of Solace was the previous best).
    IMAX is seeing big returns. Skyfall grossed $4.3 million from 132 IMAX locations in 36 territories over the weekend for a cume of $10 million, the best number ever for a non-holiday or non-summer film.

  • Skyfall Broke The Records

    ‘Skyfall’ International Total Now $287 Million; #1 And Breaking Records In Most Territories
    BREAKING… Strong film reviews and advance buzz keep propelling the high-octane spy actioner to fast-moving and often record-setting overseas grosses its first 10 or so days out. Sony Pictures’ and MGM’s Skyfall, the 23rd film in the James Bond series from Eon Productions, grossed an astonishing $156 million this weekend, bringing the overseas total to $287 million after just 10 days. “Overseas Bond numbers are huge. Exceptional results across the board fr Skyfall,” a Sony exec tells me. Sony’s markets earned an estimated $139 million for the weekend and MGM’s licensees did and estimated $17 million. IMAX issued an estimated weekend gross of $4.3M in 132 overseas locations over 36 territories, or $33,000+ per screen. Among holdovers, the UK fell off just 21% from its opening weekend to gross $25.7M and bring the 10-day market cume to a staggering $85.8M. France added $14.3M in its 2nd frame to bring the market cume to $30.0M, already passing the lifetime of Casino Royale and a day from passing Quantum Of Solace. This Friday-Saturday-Sunday fell off just 20% from last weekend’s opening abroad. The 007 pic opens Friday in North America theaters and this Thursday on IMAX screens here. The NYC special screening of Skyfall – a fundraiser for the Tribeca Film institute – will be held Monday. Sony Pictures Releasing International is at an all-time biggest $2.16 billion through today. It’s thanks in part to Skyfall and Resident Evil: Retribution, as well as Hotel Transylvania and the summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man and Men In Black 3. That passes SPRI’s previous best year of 2009 and $2.14B. Worldwide, the studio is at $3.6B moving towards its first ever $4B year. Presently, Sony Pictures is #1 in market share.

    As for this weekend’s Skyfall openings internationally:

    - GERMANY $23.9M, biggest opening of 2012, +77% larger than Quantum Of Solace‘s and +88% bigger than Casino Royale‘s.

    - ITALY $7.9M for biggest opening of a Hollywood film in 2012 and the 2nd biggest overall. It beat Quantum Of Solace opening by +95% and Casino Royale‘s by +85%.

    - SPAIN $6.7 for 2nd biggest opening of the year, and +27% bigger than the opening of Quantum Of Solace and +73% more than Casino Royale‘s.

    - SWITZERLAND $5.3M, record-setting as biggest opening in history there, breaking Quantum Of Solace’s old record.

    - HOLLAND $4.4M, by far the biggest opening of the year there, almost 2½ times the previous best. The opening was +91% bigger than Quantum Of Solace‘s, +179% more than Casino Royale‘s.

    - AUSTRIA $3.4M, more than double the previous biggest opening of 2012 and 2nd biggest of all time.


    The overseas records are a great indicator of how the Sam Mendes-directed pic will do at the North American box office. Hollywood expects this installment to top both 2008′s Quantum Of Solace which went on to gross $586M (£367.4M) worldwide and 2006′s Casino Royale which grossed $594.2M (£372.5M) making it the highest-grossing film in the Bond franchise (not adjusted for inflation or higher ticket prices). That includes the U.S., where all-in guesstimates top $215M – much better than Quantum Of Solace‘s $168.3M or Casino Royale’s $167.4M. Even better for the studios and filmmakers, Skyfall cost much less than both other films. Grammy multi-winner Adele sang the Bond theme. Daniel Craig reprises his role as 007, with Javier Bardem playing the villain Raoul Silva, and Naomie Harris and Bérénice Marlohe as Bond girls. Mendes was the first Oscar-winner to direct a Bond pic. Meanwhile, Sony, MGM, and Eon are so pleased with Skyfall that its screenwriter John Logan already is writing the next two installments, Bond 24 and 25.

    The film has already made $287 million in its overseas run, meaning that before it ever opens here in the United States, it’s already become a giant, giant hit. And even better for Sony– they’re expecting just as much of a success, if not more, when Skyfall finally opens in the United States. According to Deadline current estimates for Skyfall’s total box office gross in the United States go as far as $215 million, which would make it by far the most financially successful film in the franchise. We’re super excited for the release of Skyfall this week, and we hope you are too! To share the excitement, we’ll be writing a ton about Bond in the coming days, so keep coming back for much more where this came from.

    Before the character of James Bond ever graced the silver screen, he was introduced to audiences by an American actor, Barry Nelson. In 1954, ‘Casino Royale’ was adapted into a television episode in a series called, ‘Climax!’. The spy was referred to as ‘Jimmy Bond’.

    In 1967, a satirical Bond film was released, also based on ‘Casino Royale’. A handful of heavyweight talents involved in the project included: Peter Sellers, Orson Welles, Woody Allen and David Niven (Sean Connery was interested, but he was too costly to cast).

    However, it would seem that Sean Connery was destined to play the legendary spy, as he first took on the role in ‘Dr. No’ (1962). He continued his portrayal of Bond for four subsequent films, before returning to the character again in 1971. Though Connery was never my favorite, I greatly enjoyed his performances in other features such as ‘Outland’ (Sci-Fi Drama, 1981), ‘The Untouchables’ (Crime Drama, 1987), and ‘The Hunt for Red October’ (Military Suspense, 1990). His natural charm, Scottish accent and dark, good looks cemented him as the favorite for many Bond fans.

    When Sean Connery left the role of 007 originally, producer Albert R. Broccoli expressed interest in Timothy Dalton. The actor declined, saying that he felt he was too young to play the part. Then in 1969, ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’ was released with Australian actor, George Lazenby as the beloved spy. Due to the poor advice of his agent, Lazenby declined a contract for seven films, and walked away after just one outing.

    In 1973, Roger Moore starred in his first Bond film, ‘Live and Let Die’. What’s amazing to me is that Moore was forty-five years of age when originally cast, and continued to play the character for twelve years, appearing in seven Bond movies altogether. Moore was my favorite childhood Bond, and I loved that he came across as a gentleman (though he was still quite popular with the ladies) and had a playful quality to his personality. He endeared me to him even more, when he said that he feels Daniel Craig is the best 007 so far.

    When Timothy Dalton declined the role of James Bond, he was only 22 years of age. But some opportunities are too good to pass up, so in 1987, Dalton appeared in ‘The Living Daylights’. He went on to portray 007 again in ‘License to Kill’ (1989) and was prepared to return for a third film. However, due to dispute issues and a number of postponements, the actor finally walked away from the franchise five years later.

    In 1995, ‘GoldenEye’ was released, and Pierce Brosnan fulfilled his long-held ambition of portraying the suave spy. He had been the first choice to replace Roger Moore after 1985, but couldn’t get out of his contract for the TV series, ‘Remington Steele’. Though I’ve enjoyed Brosnan’s performances in movies (he was great in ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’, ‘Dante’s Peak’ and tremendous in ‘Evelyn’), I felt that he lacked the ability to flesh out the character in a satisfying manner. Then again, I wasn’t crazy about this period of Bond films. They were too over-the-top for me (and not in a humorous, campy way, either). I lost all interest in the franchise when Denise Richards attempted to play a nuclear physicist. Please tell me I wasn’t the only one.

    The New Bond Order:

    For the 21st Bond film, MGM and Eon Productions decided to reboot the franchise, starting the spy’s storyline from the very beginning. They wanted a leaner and more dangerous character, with a movie less focused on gadgets and props, and more on what kind of a man it would take to live and breathe such a deadly profession. I recall the reactions when Eon and Sony Pictures announced that Daniel Craig had been cast for ‘Casino Royale’.

    To say that people protested, would be putting it mildly. Some decried a blond Bond, declaring that this betrayed how 007 had long been established. Others called Craig a boring choice because, I assume, they haven’t seen him at his best work. Granted, my first real introduction to the actor was from ‘Tomb Raider’ and based on that, it didn’t exactly leave a great impression. (I first saw him in ‘Elizabeth’, but didn’t know who he was at the time. It was a fairly small role and he barely had any lines.)

    Then in 2003, I watched Craig in the British indie film, ‘The Mother’. His performance was absolutely fearless, especially given the controversial subject matter. I was in awe, and from that moment on, became interested in seeing him in future projects. In 2005, he was an integral part of a talented ensemble in Steven Spielberg’s, ‘Munich’. Though it was nominated for five Academy awards, sadly, it didn’t win a single one.

    In 2006, ‘Casino Royale’ was released and the critics who judged the casting choice rather harshly, were mostly silenced. The movie was critically acclaimed, establishing Daniel Craig’s performance as a reinvention of 007. It earned close to $600 million worldwide, the highest grossing Bond film at that time. Subsequently, I enjoyed his performances in ‘The Golden Compass’ and ‘Defiance’, and especially loved his portrayals in ‘Cowboys & Aliens’ and ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’.

    So Why Is Daniel Craig My Favorite Bond?:

    For one, he’s the most talented actor to portray 007. He can come across as aloof and detached as you would imagine a covert agent might, but beneath that hard exterior is a man who is obviously in pain. And in ‘Casino Royale’, Craig’s portrayal of Bond was absolutely heartbreaking. It’s quite a character arc to go from arrogant, controlled and deadly, to vulnerable and caring until the very end, only to lose what matters most to him, thereby forcing him to erect those emotional walls yet again.

    The other important factor is that Craig is in excellent shape, which makes Bond even more believable. Realistically, if you’re going to be a field agent such as 007, you need to be in the best condition possible for physical altercations. Also, this Bond is gritty. He actually gets messed up and hurt during his fights. But on the flip side of that, he looks like the perfect gentleman when he’s dressed to the nines. All the better to sidle up and charm a lady to get information, when need be.

    As for ‘Skyfall’, I’m thrilled to learn that Bond has returned to excellent form. For me, ‘Quantum of Solace’ was a major disappointment, especially since I was quite impressed by ‘Casino Royale’. And with respect to the Bourne franchise, I’d like to see Matt Damon eat his words, for all of the extreme criticism that he voiced towards the Bond legacy. After making almost $300 million internationally so far, ‘Skyfall’ has proven that our hero is here to stay. Happy 50th birthday, James! The world is yours for the taking.

    Dumping Geroge Clooney for Daniel Craig
    I dream a lot about George Clooney. It’s not always the actual Clooney in my dreams, but most of the men I dream about have Clooney’s face. Any man who appears in my dreams, bus driver, teacher, fisherman, or pilot, looks like George Clooney. I take comfort in knowing I will meet up with George in my dreams. He is always there, always fabulous, and always mine.

    In my dreams George and I have gotten married, been on Dancing With The Stars, had a baby, been to the Oscars®, and simply cooked dinner together. Our love affair has been going on in my mind for years. If I were ever to come across George in real life, I would simply walk on past and ignore him. He is perfect in my dreams and I don’t want to change that. Better I keep him perfect.

    By walk on past, of course I mean I would latch onto him and have to be removed by authorities. I like to think I’d be cool and not care, but come on. I love him and he is my dream man. Literally. The other day I had a very restless sleep. George did not show and I was up several times during the night. I was unable to get comfortable, so I gave up.

    I slinked out of the bedroom as the Englishman slept. By slept of course I mean out like a light. This man sleeps deep. He could, and has, slept through earthquakes. I went to make a cup of tea as I cursed George for not showing up. I wondered around the house for a bit, hung out with the cat, emptied the dishwasher, and went back to bed.

    As I walked into the room, at the risk of sounding like a romance novel, the moonlight was streaming across my bed and hit the Englishman across the face. I had to stop for a minute because I saw something rather interesting. There in my bed, oblivious to my inability to sleep, was Daniel Craig. Forget about Clooney, I had Bond. James Bond, in my bed.

    It turns out my Englishman looks a bit like Daniel Craig. From piercing blue eyes, to the rugged face, along with the English accent thrown in for good measure, I have my own Bond at home. I have always felt my Englishman is wonderful, and felt no issue with spending my slumber with George. That said, I think my nights with George have come to an end.

    I am going to spend my time in bed with Mr. Bond. In fact, this newfound discover provides me with a whole new list of fantasies that can actually come true. In a few weeks I will be jetting to London with my Englishman, and I think there will be a lot of James Bond action happening. The possibilities are endless, and they are sexy as hell.

    I am going to write down my dreams with Bond, so my fantasies can come true with my Englishman. Why should I dream about Clooney, when Daniel Craig is in my bed? What a lucky girl I am that my fantasy and my reality look the same. If you love Clooney, his evenings are now free, so enjoy. When it comes to sweet dreams, I am keeping the faith.
