Daniel Craig couldn’t have made it more clear during the Spectre press tour that he was pretty sick of playing James Bond. He even went so far as to suggest he’d pick slashing his wrists over returning as the famous secret agent for a fifth time. And now it looks like the actor is really done as 007, reportedly turning down a ton of money to star in the next Bond film. As big of a bummer as that is, it also means it’s time to speculate!
Spectre wasn’t the biggest hit with fans of the James Bond franchise, due largely to the regressive nature of the script. After taking a step forward with Skyfall, director Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig’s 007 took two steps back in the latest outing, and the decision to play coy about the true identity of Christoph Waltz’s villain certainly didn’t do the film any additional favors. Regardless of how you felt about Waltz’s role in Bond’s 24th installment, the actor may very well return for another tussle with the iconic agent.
In the grand pantheon of immortal James Bond theme singers, a golden hall where Shirley Bassey sits atop a gilded throne with Nancy Sinatra at her right hand and the recently-inducted Adele at her left, chances are you won’t find Sam Smith...
The good folks at the Guinness Book of World Records have taken a special interest in this Spectre sequence, and proudly announced yesterday that the scene constitutes the largest stunt film explosion of all time.
