A double shot of sorts this week as far as the blog and Chris Cornell are concerned, but we have good reason to have him on again. I could go through a whole list of amazing songs that were the theme songs for all the various James Bond films and tell you which ones are my favorite, but I’m not doing that right now. However, I will say that there are three thinsg that ar highly anticipated when it comes to Bond films and those are 1. who is the villain? 2. who is the Bond girl(s)?, and 3 is the theme song any good? We’ve seen Paul McCartney, Duran Duran, Adele, Garbage, Sheena Easton, and so many more do the theme songs. In 2006, as they were preparing to introduce the world to Daniel Craig as James Bond, Chris Cornell provided the them song for the film Casino Royale with the song You Know My Name. For the song, he worked with composer David Arnold who wanted to the song to reflect the score of the film. You get just that with this track which has that score feel to it while still be an absolute rocker. Cornell talked about the difficulties of writing the song saying, “It is difficult, I think, to write lyrics for a character, so really I just kind of wandered around for about a month not thinking about it too much, until I sort of formulated some idea of a way that I could approach it, where I’m kind of relating to what’s in the character in the movie. And because this particular Bond is very edgy, but also has a lot of emotional depth, it’s a lot easier.” The song is absolutely amazing and truly one of my favorites. Check it out below and look out for Spectre in November:

We are doing a collection of trailers in one post because we are approaching the time that all of the summer blockbusters and so on will release their trailers for all to see. 2015 is already shaping up to be one of the greatest years in a long time for films with so many antcipated releases coming up like The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Jurassic World, Mad Max: Fury Road, Ant Man and so many more. I want to share all of the latest trailers with you guys to get you amped up for the big year. So, let’s get started.

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron: There have been a lot of trailers that have been released so far that have revealed the newest member of the team in Vision as well as the debut of the clip of Iron Man vs The Hulk at the MTV Movie Awards last night. The trailer I just watched titled Let’s Finish This just shows you every character in the Avengers during certain situations and further shows you some of the bad ass scenes you can expect. Below that I also have the Iron Man vs Hulk video:

Ant-Man: This is the other Marvel film that is going to be released this year besides the Avengers film that introduces us to the guy who was supposed to be a part of the Avengers in Ant-Man. The trailer introduces us to Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and his protege Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) who becomes Ant-Man and we also get introduced to who his villain is going to be. The trailer has a col scene at the end you should check out that I think is funny.

Terminator: Genisys: To get off of the superhero train and on to one of the greatest franchises to star one of the greatest action heroes of the 80’s in Arnold Schwarzenegger in the new film Terminator: Genisys which some fans feel takes the franchise backwards. Well, the new trailer throws another monkey wrench that I never saw coming as John Connor is trying to kill his mom now. Check it out for yourself:

Mad Max: Fury Road: I am so pumped to see this film in May because it looks so epic and series mastermind George Miller is at the helm which means it’s going to be great. We get to see a little bit more of the guy with the mask and the trailer explains a little more. Check it out below:

San Andreas: The Rock is already having a superstar year as Furious 7 has already grossed more than 800 million worldwide, but he has another film coming out this year. I have to admit that I didn’t really have an interest in seeing San Andreas, the latest disaster flick, but after seeing this trailer with the beautiful Carla Gugino, I might just go and see it.

Sinister 2: The first film was fantastic as I deemed it my surprise hit the year it was released. The idea of the first film which is continued into the sequel was absolutely brillaint and creepy. Well, the Bughuul was creepy as hell and he’s back and more visible his time around. Check out the trailer below as the film is slated for release in August.

Spectre: We treated a couple weeks ago to a teaser trailer from the upcoming Bond film Spectre which promises to be great, but I feel the series has taken a dark turn much like Skyfall did, but I’m not complaining. Check out the teaser trailer below:

Creed: I like the direction they decided to take with the Rocky series as we are going to receive the spin off Creed which finds Rocky training Apollo Creed’s grandson Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan). Check out a photo Sylvester Stallone posted below:


635532740226866485-spectre-teaser-posterSince 2013, there have been a total of 23 bond films made and produced with six different men donning the tuxedo and calling themselves James Bond with Daniel Craig being the latest. Today, we had some exciting film news because they officially released some kind of poster for the 24TH Bond film which is going to be called Spectre. Sam Mendes live today from the 007 stage at Pinewood Studios in England revealed the film title and he also revealed who would be starring as the next Bond villain. Besides Daniel Craig as Bond, the film will star Guardians Of The Galaxy star Dave Bautista as Mister Hinx, Andrew Scott (Sherlock Holmes) as Denby, and the new Bond girls are Monica Bellucci (The Matrix) and Lea Seydoux (Inglorious Basterds). Now, we know that they signed magnificent actor Christoph Waltz, but who is he playing exactly. According to a source of mine, some believed that Waltz was going to playing the role of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, but the rumor is that he is going to be playing Oberhauser.

SPECTRE_PC_016_rgb-720x480The official synopsis read as follows, “A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind Spectre.” Shooting for the film will apparently begin on Monday, but they are still in rehearsals right now. They expect the film’s shoot to last for seven months with shooting happening in locations like London, Rome, Mexico City, Morocco and Austria. Ben Whishaw returns to the film as Q while Ralph Fiennes takes Judi Dench’s place as M. Naomie Harris is Moneypenny while Rory Kinnear returns to play MI6 chief of staff Bill Tanner. One of the other cool things about the reveal was what car James Bond was going to drive for this film and it’s a brand new Aston Martin DB10. We have the picture for you below and the film is tentatively due for release on November 6, 2015. So stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.
