Pierce Brosnan on the Modernized James Bond

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celeb News, Celebrity Gossip,

Pierce Brosnan as James Bond, who played James Bond in four of the spy movies, believes the iconic character has changed dramatically since his successor took over the role.

“It’s totally changed since is playing it. They wanted to modernize Bond. I didn’t stop voluntarily,” the 56-year-old actor said. “We talked about a fifth movie and then came the call that I am out. Total change of direction. That was very hard.”

Although he was upset to be axed from the action franchise, Pierce claims that since his last Bond outing in 2002’s Die Another Day, his career has changed for the better. “So much the better how my career evolved. But being an actor is only my second career choice. Primarily I am a father,” he told website Kurier.at.

Despite his thoughts on the role, Pierce hasn’t even watched Craig in action. “I haven’t seen Daniel in the role. I tried watching it on an airplane. I thought 37,000 feet was a good distance to watch it from and it broke down right at the beginning,” he recalled. “The attendant came and changed it and it broke down a second time, so I figured, ‘OK. The Gods must be saying something…’ So I never went near it!”

Brosnan’s next film, with Robert Pattinson, opens on March 12.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Awards,

What do , Jessica Alba and Cameron Diaz have in common? They might not get dates with Oscar anytime soon, but they still have shots at an award.

Early Wednesday, the three ladies became the latest actresses to contend for a title previously owned by Halle Berry and Lindsay Lohan. Come February 21, the trio - along with the cast of The Women and Kate Hudson - will all by vying for the Worst Actress category at the 29th Annual Razzie Awards.

Box Office Breakdown: Bangkok Dangerous Tops Dismal Weekend

Bangkok Dangerous

Eek. And I thought a $14 million weekend was bad.

Seven days ago, Tropic Thunder reached the #1 spot despite an unimpressive box office turnout. This week, accomplished that same achievement—with only $7.7 million dollars.

While number crunchers weren’t expecting stellar numbers (kids are back in school, football’s back gone), the underwhelming response to ‘s latest film was a bit surprising. Not only did the film industry have its worst weekend of 2008, Bangkok had the lowest take for any first-placed flick in five years. (Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star topped with $6.6 million in 2003.)

Box Office Breakdown: Tropic Thunder Makes It Three for Three

Disaster Movie

At any other time of the year, a $14 million take would probably get you a decent ranking in the Top Ten. This holiday weekend, that box office total was enough to put into first place. Again.

Despite a new Vin Diesel entry, the Ben Stiller comedy led the top of the pack for the third weekend in a row. (If it reaches that mark a fourth time, it will have officially reached Dark Knight territory.) Meanwhile, Babylon A.D. settled for second place with only $11.5 million in ticket sales. I’m guessing the sci fi film’s reviews - in particular, the one from the movie’s own director - might have had something to do with the disappointing turnout.

Box Office Breakdown: Tropic Thunder Wins the Death Race

Jason Statham in Death Race

Although it was widely believed that (hunky) Jason Statham would emerge as this weekend’s winner, somehow managed to hold its ground. The comedy, which only raked in $16.2 million during this outing, became the third movie this year to make a repeat appearance at #1. (The other two films were those giant blockbusters called Iron Man and The Dark Knight.)

Overall, this was an unimpressive weekend for films. Theatergoers probably confused (like me) by Joan Allen’s participation only poured $12.6 million of their dollars into . Meanwhile, The House Bunny became this week’s highest-grossing chick alternative (Sorry, Sisterhood!) with its $14.5 million gross.

Box Office Breakdown: Dark Knight Struck Down by Tropic Thunder

Tropic Thunder

Despite a somewhat disappointing opening last Wednesday ($6.5 million), actually managed to surpass the four-time box office winner. The comedy grossed $25.8 million over the past three days, nearly $10 million more than its caped competitor.

And while Ben Stiller should be happy by his movie’s accomplishment, the Dreamworks/Paramount film still left a lot to be desired. Recent comedies such as Get Smart ($38.6 million) and Step Brothers ($30.9 million) debuted to better numbers. But then those two films didn’t have a distraction like Michael Phelps to contend with.
