At a massive event at Pinewood Studios‘ 007 Stage this morning, the regular pre-principal photography press conference for the latest James Bond movie unveiled everything you need to know about the 24th outing of Her Majesty’s superest super spy. To say that there are high expectations for this latest Bond film, even higher than there are for the average Bond film, is something of an understatement. Skyfall, which expertly marked Bond’s 50th birthday back in 2012, was the most successful in the franchise’s history and at over $1.1 billion in tickets sold worldwide it was the ninth highest grossing movie of all time. As we all know, Daniel Craig is returning, and director Sam Mendes is back, and in the case of Bond 24 it seems that Spectre is also back. (more…)
Andrew Scott, who plays Jim Moriarty on BBC One‘s Sherlock says the cast would be sent to the gallows for disclosing any spoilers to the outside world. I’ve always assumed staying silent on one’s projects if you’re an actor, Apple employee or CIA official is just an inherent part of The Way Things Are. Evidently not.
BBC One is making extra sure that no leakage happens to keep fans on their toes. At the close of the last series, Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Sherlock suffered a fake death after being (wrongly) accused of being a serial killer.
According to Scott:
If I told you what happens they would kill me.
I never guessed how the last episode would end. It even surprised me.
It has been fantastic filming the new series but we have all been banned from telling our families or friends what is in the scripts.
We are not allowed to speak to anyone.
I don’t think everyone thought it would be so successful.
I can see it still on TV in 20 years as we all started working on it very young.
The next series airs this fall (in the U.K. anyway), and only then will we find out what happens.
What do you guys think, what’s your spoiler policy?
