Updated! Daniel Craig is Bond No More?

The BBC says Craig isn’t out yet (sigh); according to their own “separate, authoritative Bond sources” who also add that “no decision is likely to be made for a while”.

I know everyone has been saying this ever since Craig’s rants during the promotion of SPECTRE but according to the Daily Mail he has turned down a £68M deal to play the British secret agent one more time.

The Mail states one LA film source said: ‘Daniel is done – pure and simple – he told top brass at MGM after Spectre. They threw huge amounts of money at him, but it just wasn’t what he wanted.’

 

 
He added: ‘He had told people after shooting that this would be his final outing, but the film company still felt he could come around after Spectre if he was offered a money deal.’
One source said that executives had finally agreed to let the actor go after growing tired of his criticism of the franchise.

Craig, 48, told interviewers last year that he would rather ‘slash my wrists’ than agree to another Bond film.

Well, hopefully we can find someone who brings a little more personality and humour to the role. Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba have been favourites for a while but personally I want Tom Ellis (Lucifer) who could bring a lighter touch again.

First Trailer for Maze Runner: The Death Cure

I remember quite enjoying the first Maze Runner but I never got around to watching The Scorch Trials; this latest entry in the series actually looks like it might be pretty decent so I may have to give them both a watch before ...

International Trailer for The Commuter

This is actually a better trailer than the first one… right up until the crappy CG finale which looks like the climax of the film too. So now we don’t need to bother watching it when it comes out. Plot: In the midst...
