WATCH: Who Should Be the Next James Bond?

Daniel Craig stars as 007 once again in Spectre, the 24th film in the James Bond franchise. While the film is sure to be a U.S. blockbuster, it seems that we just can’t stop talking about who’ll be the next Bond once Craig hangs up his suspenders. In this episode of the Anglophenia YouTube series, […]


Ranking the James Bond Directors

In the five decades since James Bond first hit movie screens in 1962, 11 different directors have had the honor of stepping behind the camera for his adventures.

In all the kerfuffle this week about whether Idris Elba is too (ahem) “street” to play James Bond one crucial element has been entirely overlooked.

WATCH: Bond is Back in Full-length ‘Spectre’ Trailer

After everything that happened in Skyfall, you’d think the top brass at Mi5 would cut James Bond a little slack from time to time. He did stop that fella who blew up their office building, after all.

Sam Mendes Thought Daniel Craig was a “Terrible Idea” for Bond

We’re all getting geared up for the release of the latest James Bond movie Spectre, the fourth to star Daniel Craig in the lead role and the consolidation of his hard-bitten and growly version of that character.
