Rachel Weisz reveals a happy married life with Daniel Craig!

Rachel Weisz dealt with lonely nights on the sofa eating comfort food while she was in her twenties just like the rest of us.

She wondered if she’d ever meet anyone worthwhile, had a few boyfriends who didn’t make the cut, but eventually ended up marrying James Bond (otherwise known as Daniel Craig).

“I was often single and feeling alone in my twenties,” said Weisz. “I’d eat pizza at home by myself, rent movies, all the clichés…It was hard sometimes but you hope eventually you’ll find the right partner.”

In 2011, she married Daniel Craig, whom she first became friends with in 1994, hosting a small wedding attended by only four people.

She has a son, Henry, with former boyfriend Darren Aronofsky, while Craig has a daughter, Ella, with his first wife, Fiona Loudon.
The actress says that she feels happier now than ever.

“When I was younger, I worried about so many things and it was hard for me to feel happy or understand what made me happy,” she said. “Once you reach your forties, you know where to look.”

The couple rarely talk about their relationship publically, preferring to lead a quiet life – which involves a lot of home cooking.

“I love to cook,” she told The Mirror. “Daniel is also very good at it. We always enjoy trying out different kinds of cuisine and having fun with that.”

Associate Producer, Gregg Wilson says they have “to deliver an amazing sequence and this is going to be one of the major action sequences of the movie, a jewel in the crown so to speak. It’s going to be spectacular and Austria seemed to offer everything that we needed to pull it off.”

Production Designer Dennis Gassner adds, “the thing that Sam and I talked about was how we are going to top `Skyfall’, it’s going to be `Spectre’ and so far it’s a great start. I think that we are going to continue the history of the Bond films, making things that are exciting for the audience to look at and what could be more exciting than to be on top of the world.”

Spectre also stars Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear, Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci and Andrew Scott.

In the film, a cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. 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.

James Bond is the longest running, and one of the most successful franchises of all time, with twenty-three films produced and the twenty-fourth about to go in to production.

Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli succeeded Albert R ‘Cubby’ Broccoli and have produced the past seven Bond films together, including the highly successful Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall.

All of the James Bond films have been made in collaboration with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios or United Artists, its predecessor.

Opening across the Philippines on Nov. 06, 2015, Spectre will be distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

Daniel Craig is on the cover of Rolling Stone!

Daniel Craig is on the cover of the latest issue of the Rolling Stone Magazine!


Below are some excerpts from the interview:

On the latest James Bond film, Skyfall: “It’s quite good. It’s got a lightness of touch and a wink to it, because, after all, this is a James Bond movie, for f*ck’s sake.”

On signing on to do more Bond movies: “I’ve been trying to get out of this from the very moment I got into it, but they won’t let me go, and I’ve agreed to do a couple more, but let’s see how this one does, because business is business and if the shit goes down, I’ve got a contract that somebody will happily wipe their ass with.”

Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe – two Bond women in “Skyfall”!

 In the new James Bond 007 adventure “Skyfall,” two Bond women complicate matters for the British super spy. They are played by Naomie Harris (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest”) and French actress Berenice Marlohe.

Daniel Craig who plays Bond says “We’ve just been blessed with a terrific cast. The casting of the girls: Naomie and Bérénice – finding two exceptionally beautiful women who are very serious actresses and who are intelligent and work hard. For me, it has been a joy.”

Harris plays Eve, a MI6 field agent. “In recent years, the Bond films have featured two girls – one an exotic type and the other a home-grown type. Naomie manages to be both,” says director Sam Mendes.

Eve is a brilliant field agent who’s very independent, intelligent, witty, fun and courageous,” says Harris. “She’s not afraid to stand her ground with Bond, and I think that makes her so much more interesting. Playing Eve really allowed me to highlight the more adventurous side of my personality, which was a lot of fun.”

The filmmakers were pleasantly surprised by the extra layers that Harris brought to the role of Eve. Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli explain, “The character written was basically a field agent with a lot of sass, but it wasn’t until Naomie came in, that we really saw the potential that this character could be something entirely new in terms of a Bond film. She’s very resourceful, she gives Bond a really hard time, but you still manage to have a tremendous affection for her and there is a wonderful flirtatiousness between them. She can hold her own with Bond. We think that audiences are really going to relate to her. She’s an extraordinary actress.”

Another key role in “Skyfall” is that of Severine, played by Bérénice Marlohe. “If I could have invented a Bond girl, it would be Bérénice,” laughs Mendes. “I wanted to find somebody with all of the classic components of a Bond girl: voluptuous, sexy, a woman and not a girl, mystery. Bérénice is half-Cambodian, half-French. She gives us that mystery. On top of all that, she happens to be a fantastic actress.”

Marlohe explains that she was encouraged to make Severine unique. “I felt I could use my own personality and imagination to create my character’s style – I had the freedom, knowing that this kind of movie allowed me that space.”

Writer Robert Wade describes the idea behind Severine, “She’s a survivor. Like many of the women in the Fleming books, she’s toughened herself up because she knows what it is to have been abused at the hands of men.”

Of her character, Marlohe says, “Severine is the link between Bond and his nemesis, Silva,” says Marlohe. “She’s a very mysterious woman. I wanted her to have a lot of substance.”

Opening across the Philippines on Oct. 31 in IMAX, Digital 2D and regular theaters, “Skyfall” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

Oscar-Winner Sam Mendes Directs ‘Skyfall’!

In approaching Columbia Pictures’ “Skyfall,” the 23rd James Bond adventure, the filmmakers were very attuned to the fact that 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of James Bond on film.

They were determined that this entry in the longest-running film franchise in history would deliver everything that has made Bond, Bond: heart-stopping action, scene-stealing villains, beautiful Bond women, exotic locations, a killer theme, the Aston Martin DB5… and, of course, 007 himself, played by Daniel Craig.

But a Bond film is not a collection of puzzle pieces; these elements combine – like gin and vermouth, shaken, not stirred – to serve the story. For “Skyfall,” bringing it all together is Academy Award®-winner Sam Mendes. “I knew that Sam would put everything behind it,” says Craig, who marks his third film as Bond. “He would put all of his knowledge of movie making behind it, but also his knowledge and love of Fleming and Bond.”

While Mendes might be best known for directing a different kind of movie, he says that high entertainment and artistic integrity are not mutually exclusive. “I have my own, personal relationship with Bond, which began when I was 9 or 10 years old – when `Live and Let Die’ came out,” he says. “We happen to be living in a time when it’s possible to make a big, entertaining, glamorous, escapist movie that also says something about the world we live in. With Daniel’s performances in `Casino Royale’ and `Quantum of Solace,’ James Bond feels like a real man in a real situation again. It reminded me of the way I felt when I watched the Sean Connery movies.”

For the producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, the anniversary brings with it added expectations. “It’s our 50th anniversary and 23rd film so the pressure’s on to make the best Bond ever. We have an extraordinary cast, an incredibly talented creative team and an emotionally charged script,” says Wilson.

Broccoli adds that Mendes’ relationship and history with the Bond films adds a personal element from the very start. “With his knowledge and history, he identifies with the audience – he knows what works and what an audience is expecting. And, frankly, that’s great to watch on set,” she says.

Throughout these 50 years, it has been the Broccoli family – first Albert R. “Cubby” Broccoli and partner Harry Saltzman, and then Cubby’s children, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli – who have been the overseers and caretakers of the James Bond film franchise. “Michael and Barbara are extraordinary because they work very well as a team,” says Mendes. “Barbara has a remarkable skill for making people feel like she knows their name and knows what their issues are, and if there’s ever a crisis, she’s the one who will handle it. Michael brings an enormous amount of experience and wisdom, combined with such a gentle presence on the set – he never bullies or lectures. If you have an idea and are wondering, ‘Has Bond done this before,’ ask Michael – he knows.”

It was Craig – with the support of Wilson and Broccoli – who invited his friend, Mendes, to direct the film. “When we started talking about it, I felt a connection with someone who had exactly the same enthusiasm and respect for the Bond films that I did,” says Craig. “And, of course, I deeply respect Sam as a director. I said to him, ‘This is going to be a new experience for you – trust me, because I made two of them and it was a very new experience for me. Nothing can quite prepare you.’”

“Skyfall” welcomes back screenwriters Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and introduces Academy Award®-winner John Logan to the Bond writing family. Logan explains, “I felt greatly encouraged by Sam and Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson to make the screenplay as unique as I could, using my particular strengths as a writer. Coming from the world of theatre, for me, it has always been about character and dialogue. When you look over the vast panoply of Bond films, things tend to emerge, like a lightning bolt: great moments of dialogue, great moments of character interaction – whether it’s Bond and `Goldfinger,’ Bond and Blofeld, or Bond and Vesper Lynd. Those are the amazing scenes that just stop your heart because they’re unexpected in what’s considered a genre movie.”

Of course, for each individual Bond film, it is the director who guides and shapes the picture. Mendes says he felt the freedom to put his own stamp on the legendary franchise. “I have been given an enormous amount of freedom – and I’ve never felt constrained or hidebound by the genre or the franchise,” he says. “Part of that is Daniel and Judi Dench, both of whom I already knew well. Frankly, I’d love the two of them to be in any movie I directed. But part of it is also the enthusiasm with which the producers greeted new ideas about Bond and M and the franchise as a whole.”

Opening across the Philippines on Oct. 31, “Skyfall” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

Daniel Craig is on the cover of Vanity Fair!

Daniel Craig is on the cover of Vanity Fair Magazine’s November 2012 issue!

Below are some highlights from the interview:

Daniel on protecting the Bond franchise: “What I’m doing is not what Pierce [Brosnan] was doing, and Pierce wasn’t doing what Roger Moore was doing, or what Sean [Connery] was doing, or what Timothy [Dalton] was doing. Things have changed. It’s just kind of the ride of it. Pierce used to say that it’s like being responsible for a small country. It’s kind of like you have to look after it diplomatically. I kind of get that, but I can’t really say that’s my deal. I’m not going to be the poster boy for this. Although I am the poster boy.”
Daniel on living life as James Bond: “It’s amazing how many times I’ve sat in interviews like this in a bar or a hotel, and it’s 11 o’clock in the morning and someone sends a martini over. And it’s like, Really? It’s 11 o’clock! Cheers! I’m not going to drink it.”
Daniel on Bond’s new drink of choice: “Product placement, whichever way you look at it, whether you like it or you think it’s disgusting, or whatever, it’s what it is. Heineken gave us a ton of money for there to be Heineken in a shot in a bar. So, how easy is that? Just to say, OK, there’s Heineken. It’s there — it’s in the back of the shot. Without them, the movie couldn’t get sold, so that all got kind of blown up. ‘Bond’s new drink is a Heineken.’ He likes a lot of drinks — Heineken, Champagne; it’s all in there. I’ll drink a beer in the shot, I’m happy to, but I’m not going to do an ‘Ahhhhh’ [pantomiming an actor looking refreshed]. And I would say this because they’re paying, but they’re kind of respectful about it. They don’t want to screw the movie up.”

Daniel Craig is on the cover of Esquire UK!

Skyfall actor Daniel Craig is on the cover of Esquire Magazine UK for October 2012 issue!

Below are some highlights from the interview:

On the 007 series: “I think what’s always fantastic about the Bond stories is that there’s always a darkness involved, but it’s a darkness with a sense of humor. A black humor. It’s about danger, but a good danger, because you’re in the hands of somebody who’s saying ‘F–k you’ to risk, ‘F–k you’ to dying.”

On the pressure of playing James Bond: “Bond movies live or die on their popularity. They force you to care about what people think. And I’m involved [in the films] on a very deep level. I have it in my mind all the time… So there’s that kind of pressure, and that’s an enemy in any art form, acting especially.”

On Skyfall director Sam Mendes: “It’s a very showbizzy story. I was at Hugh Jackman’s house in New York. It was a soiree – we were in a play together – and Sam was there. I’d had a few too many drinks and I went, ‘How do you fancy directing a Bond?’ And he kind of looked at me, and he went, ‘Yeah!’ And it snowballed from there.”
