Listen to Jack White and Alicia Keys’ New Bond Song

As we mentioned back in July, musicians Jack White and Alicia Keys have teamed up for the latest Bond song. “Another Way to Die” - written by the White Stripes singer - is the first 007 track performed as a duet.

Although it was once believed Amy Winehouse would be the next Bond performer, her personal troubles prevented that project from ever coming together.


The soundtrack will hit the shelves on October 28. The movie will then arrive in theaters on November 14.

Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman in AustraliaThe post-Harry Potter shuffling still hasn’t settled down.

Fox, probably realizing Australia would now be facing extremely stiff competition, has decided to push its release back a few weeks. The WWII-era romance starring and Hugh Jackman will now premiere on November 26.

This decision comes a week after Sony chose to move Quantum of Solace to November 14, Australia‘s original date.

The studio’s strategic shift will not only the director more time to complete the film, it will pit the expensive drama against less threatening fare. Other films (currently) slated to open that day are Transporter 3 and Four Christmases.

Australia is Baz Luhrmann’s first film since 2001’s Moulin Rouge, a project also featuring Kidman.

Quantum of Solace

Who knew Harry Potter’s departure would have such repercussions?

When Entertainment Weekly produced last week’s Fall Movie Preview edition (the one with that bespectacled wizard on the front), I don’t think they anticipated having such outdated information. Unfortunately, Warner Bros.’ decision to move to July 2009 has set off a series of schedule changes.

Bond, Car in Water

Although we’ve grown accustomed to seeing James Bond do flashy things with his vehicle, I don’t think his iconic car was intended for this.

This past Saturday, an Aston Martin being used on took a dive into Lake Garda while en route to the set.  Wet weather forced the vehicle - and its driver - to plunge into the waters in northern Italy.

Surprisingly, the person behind the wheel reportedly escaped with only minor injuries.  I don’t think the same could be said for the car.

Daniel Craig, New Director Attached to Latest Bond Film

Daniel CraigI sometimes forget how lucky I am.  I have food, shelter, family, friends….and now the opportunity to see the sexy Daniel Craig buttoned up in another suit.  Life is good.

It should come as no surprise that Craig was recently confirmed for the next 007 film.  His turn as the legendary James Bond helped bring Casino Royale amazing reviews and impressive box office numbers—and made this girl care about the series once again.

Of particular note was the name tapped for the helm of this latest venture:  Marc Forster.  The acclaimed director—known for his work on Finding Neverland, Monster’s Ball and Stranger Than Fiction—will be taking over the reins from Royale director, Martin Campbell.  Oscar-award winning screenwriter Paul Haggis (Crash) will once again return to help adapt the screenplay.  He also contributed to the Casino script.

Forster recently wrapped work on the film adaptation of a best-selling novel, The Kite Runner.  Production on ‘Bond 22’ is set to begin at the end of this year in hopes of a November 2008 release.
