'I would make a KICK ASS Blofeld and you know it.'
Yes, we’re back. Sorry we’ve been away, but there’s been a lot going on. Should have one of these at least weekly for you and we’ll try to keep you up to speed. The theme is simple: there’s just too much pop culture shite going on to spend your life reading a website about pop culture news. We try to give it to you in capsule form. Swallow briskly. Enjoy.

James Bond 23 finally has a title and appears to be happening. Skyfall will hit the UK and Ireland October 26, 2012, hitting stateside November 9, 2012. The story apparently has a spectre (not SPECTRE) from M’s past rising up to be dealt with. Which means Judi Dench returns (as does Craig), with Javier Bardem on board as the villain, and Naomie Harris (28 Days Later) and Berenice Marlohe (a French model) as the Bond girls. Also in the cast are Albert Finney (yes!), Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw (Perfume). Nice timing: the Variety article states that the announcement today comes on the 50th anniversary of the announcement that Sean Connery had been cast as Bond for Dr. No. Well played, Eon.
