    Casino Royale turns 10: Remember when people HATED Daniel Craig as Bond?

    With ‘Casino Royale’ about to celebrate its 10th anniversary, we look back the crazy anti-Craig fan reaction that greeted the announcement he would take over from Pierce Brosnan as 007. The trolling began the moment Daniel Craig arrived by speedboat at the London press conference unveiling him as the new James Bond – wearing a life jacket. Immediately, so-called 007 fans started whinging that James would never be such a wuss, clearly confused that the ‘Layer Cake’ star was a 37-year-old actor from Chester and not a real secret agent.

    Idris Elba’s latest movie has bombed at the box office

    Idris Elba’s ‘100 Streets’ is one such film. Elba, famed for his role in ‘The Wire’, has appeared in a host of features like the ‘Thor’ franchise, ‘Prometheus’, ‘Pacific Rim’, and this year’s ‘Zootropolis’. Joining him in ‘100 Strets’ are Gemma Arterton, Tom Cullen, and Franz Drameh, yet the British flick could only muster £245 in its opening weekend, according to HuffPost.

    Stephen King's The Dark Tower delayed

    Fans waiting for the movie adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘The Dark Tower’ will have to wait a bit longer as it’s being reported that the film has been pushed back from its February 2017 release date. Entertainment Weekly reports the Nikolaj Arcel-directed film will now be released by Sony Pictures next summer to give the production more time to complete the visual effects and effectively pre-promote the release. The film wrapped in July, but with a relatively meagre budget (for a VFX-heavy blockbuster anyway) of $60m, it seems there simply wasn’t enough time available to hit the original 17 February release date without adding millions to the cost of the film.

    After a huge amount of speculation over who’ll take the reigns as James Bond after Daniel Craig, it appears Tom Hiddleston is up for the challenge. Speaking in an interview with The Sunday Times after his lauded role in BBC’s ‘The Night Manager’, the Brit had a lot to say regarding the future of the James Bond franchise and any involvement he’d have. “Time magazine ran a poll and there were like, 100 actors on the list, including Angelina Jolie,” he recalled.
