Roger Deakins Talks Shooting Blade Runner Sequel

In a wide-ranging interview with Screen Crush, cinematographer Roger Deakins talks about his plans for the upcoming Blade Runner 2. We're just treating the new one as what it is; it's an entirely separate movie that will stand by itself. I mean obviously it has elements that connect it to the original. But it's going […]


Roger Deakins Not Returning For Bond 24

It’s still got Sam Mendes, John Logan writing and of course Daniel Craig, but Bond 24 will be lacking one important element that made Skyfall such a smash.





IMAX Trailer For James Bond's Skyfall Fleshes Out The Plot A Little

I'm fresh out of the IMAX Remix event held to coincide with Comic-Con and there will definitely be more to say about that later.

We've confirmed with Arri that the film is in fact being shot digitally, top to bottom. I feel particularly stupid because a) I checked this previously […]


James Bond Skyfall Special – A Rushes Round-Up With Lots Of Good Stuff

Let's start with some pictures from the set of Skyfall, the Sam Mendes-directed James Bond film. These reveal one of Bond's cars for the new picture… a Land Rover. That he isn't even driving himself. And he's got a stubbly little beard. Certain purists must be having fits. But, look – the car is loaded […]



Cinematographer Roger Deakins Shooting New Bond Film, Probably Digitally

It happened not too long ago with Inception and The Dark Knight cinematographer Wally Pfister and the whole Catwoman incident. And now it's happening […]
