Daniel Craig and co-stars, director Cary Joji Fukunaga and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson talk 25th James Bond movie "No Time to Die."
Harvey Weinstein is pushing pause on his life as he reportedly seeks treatment for sex addiction, but the scandal surrounding him continues to blow up.
Léa Seydoux in ‘Spectre’ (MGM/Sony) With 2012’s Skyfall and this week’s Spectre, director Sam Mendes and star Daniel Craig worked to create a new James Bond, turning an immortal, sex-crazed Teflon tuxedo into a bleeding, bruised middle-aged man on a mission. Luckily, they found a perfect partner in French actress Léa Seydoux. Warning: Minor spoilers for Spectre below: The 30-year-old French actress, who broke out in 2013 with the critically acclaimed relationship drama Blue is the Warmest Color, plays Dr. Madeleine Swann, a physician with a link to Bond’s troubled last few years — and who’s running from her own dark past. She saves him.” Swann turns out to be the estranged daughter of the assassin Mr. White, the top villain in Casino Royale (2006) and its sequel, Quantum of Solace (2008). The character, played by Jesper Christensen, shows up again in SPECTRE — part of Mendes’ effort to tie all the Craig-era films together — and gives Bond some important information, in exchange for a promise that Bond will keep Swann safe.
For starters, Monica Bellucci is on more of the mature side of what we typically see from the role. Bellucci knew early on that her role would be something special, saying, “When I met [director] Sam Mendes, he told me he was looking for an adult woman. So we see a mature woman for the first time close to James Bond, and I think it’s a beautiful message for women and for actresses.” Believe it or not, Léa Seydoux is the first blond woman to take the female lead, similar to how Daniel Craig serves as the first blond Bond. Naomie Harris, who plays Miss Moneypenny, is the veteran of the group after appearing in Skyfall.
