I’ll start by being honest: I really don’t have much time for James Bond.

Earlier this week, actress Rosamund Pike made an appearance on Amazon's Audible Sessions, where The Independent reports she recalled being asked to strip for an audition in her early 20s.

The film will be the 25th installment in the long-running franchise […]

Mary Poppins star Emily Blunt has had her odds cut from 250/1 to 50/1 to play the iconic British spy with Gillian Anderson’s name also being bandied about. Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson said: “Despite male actors dominating since its inception, we’ve finally seen a trend that is going towards a female taking up the coveted role.
Now that Daniel Craig is back as Bond, will Monica Bellucci be back as his “girl”?
