James Bond Knighted!

2 Maj

Arise, Sir 007.

Buckingham Palace sources have told the Evening Standard’s Londoner’s Diary that James Bond, played by Daniel Craig, has secretly received the honor of a knighthood from the Queen, in recognition of long and dedicated service to Q&C, and footage of the Monarch tapping 007 on the shoulder with a sword will form part of a film for the opening ceremony of the Olympics.

The event’s artistic director, Danny Boyle, has been filming at the Palace. There has been speculation that, as part of the film, the Queen gives Bond a mission to open the Games and that he will be parachuted into the east London stadium.

Craig was seen at the Palace with a film crew last month.

“Daniel Craig was here in black tie one morning in early April,” a source told the Standard. “Judi Dench [who plays M, the head of MI6] was also here, and the talk of the Palace was that Bond was going to be knighted that morning.”

A spokesman for the Palace said it was involved in a number of filming projects for the Jubilee, but would not discuss specific projects.

Judi Dench checks into ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’

1 Maj

There is no such thing as a weak performance from Dame Judi  Dench. Nor, it seems, is any character out of her range. Look at what she  did with the Alzheimer’s-plagued Iris Murdoch in “Iris,” or the stern and powerful M in a half-dozen James Bond films, or the kind and  patient Sybil Thorndike in “My Week  with Marilyn,” or her brief but riveting portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in “Shakespeare in  Love,” for which she won an Oscar.

In “The  Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” – opening Friday – Dench plays Evelyn Greenslade  who, recently widowed, finds out that her husband spent all of their money,  forcing her to sell their home and start over. Her decision is to begin living  life to the fullest, an idea that brings her, along with six other British  seniors, to the rundown hotel of the title, in Jaipur, India.

“Evelyn is an independent soul who feels that she still has a bit of life in  her,” said Dench, 77, last week in a New York hotel. “So she’s prepared to take  a chance.” The role in the dramatic comedy attracted Dench because it actually  provided her, not just her character, a chance.

“If you play one kind of a part, what happens is you get scripts rather  similar to that part,” she said. “What you long for, of course, is a script  which isn’t remotely like the last thing you’ve done. That’s what I would like  to do next. Something that isn’t in my ken.”

In “Marigold,” she not only gets to play a quietly independent yet charming  woman, but she also manages to fit in some adventure. There’s a wonderful scene  of her and Bill Nighy tearing through  the bustling streets of Jaipur on a small motorbike.

“That was most nerve-racking,” she said with a laugh. “On the back of that  motorbike, sitting sidesaddle, without a helmet on, being driven by Bill, who  was holding on with three fingers and waving with the other hand.”

There was also the adventure of just being in India, a place she had never  visited.

“My character says it’s an assault on the senses,” she recalled. “I’d never  even had a desire to go to India. But within 24 hours I was completely  fascinated and bewitched by the country. The beauty of the people was  outstanding. The color, the noise, the smell – everything about it is completely  staggering. And I can’t wait to go back there. I could retire in India. I’d be  off there tomorrow and put my feet up the chimney.”

M To Die In James Bond Skyfall

7 Apr

Judi Dench’s James Bond character M is to meet her death in the next James Bond movie ‘Skyfall’.

 

Judi Dench as M

Judi Dench as M

The UK Daily Star is reporting an insider on the set as saying “we’ve just filmed M’s death scene”.

The newspaper is also reporting that Ralph Fiennes will become the new M.

Bernard Lee played the original M from ‘Dr No’ (1962) to ‘Moonraker’ (1979). Robert Brown took over the role in 1981 for ‘Octopussy’ and played M in four films to ‘License To Kill’ in 1989.

Dame Judi Dench has played the M character in the James Bond movies since 1995’s ‘GoldenEye’. That was also the first Bond movie to star Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. Dench took over in 1995 after the longest ever break between Bond films. She based her character on Stella Rimington, the first female real-life head of MI5 between 1992 and 1996.

‘Skyfall’ will be Dame Judi’s 7th Bond movie. She has also played the character in ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’ (1997), ‘The World Is Not Enough’ (1999), ‘Die Another Day’ (2002), ‘Casino Royale’ (2006) and ‘Quantum of Solace’ (2008).

‘Skyfall’ is currently in production and will premiere on October 28, 2012.

In this movie James Bond’s loyalty to M is challenged over secrets from her past. MI6 is attacked and Bond must solve the treat alone.

Fiennes has remained tight-lipped about his role in the movie. Officially he is credited as playing “a government agent”.
