The martinis are shaken. The cufflinks are on. The black tie has been smartly adjusted shile riding through Moscow on a tank. That's right, it's finally time for a new James Bond movie!
October sees the release of what is estimated to be the most expensive 007 film ever made. In a preview of the movie, Oli, Becky, Luke and Kat talk about all things Bond, including:
-the growing similarities between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the James Bond franchise. -SPECTRE facing off against Daniel Craig's 007. -Luke's favourite Bond (which he brings up at every avaliable opportunity). -Which character Christoph Waltz is playing. -With Sam Mendes undecided over whether he'll return, who will direct the next Bond movie? -And who are the front runners to be cast as 007 once Craig hangs up the tuxedo after Bond 25?
If that wasn't enough Bond, Oli also lists not only 7 things you never knew about the James Bond franchise...but 007 things you never knew about the James Bond franchise! Which are...exactly the same number, but he thought the latter sounded better.
In non-Bond stuff, the director of Sicario Denis Villeneuve - one of the best autuers working in Hollywood today - talks to Kat about his new movie and what we can expect from his upcoming Blade Runner sequel; the gang count down the Top 5 Horror Movies of All Time (it is Hallowe'en month, after all); and, as always, movie of the month picks are had.
