"007: Spectre" Cast, Release Date and Interesting Details Revealed


"Spectre," the 24th James Bond movie begins its principal photography on December 8 and is set for worldwide release on November 6, 2015 as announced by producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and the film's director Sam Mendes early this week.

The newest James Bond adventure, from Albert R. Broccoli's EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment is topbilled by Daniel Craig, who returns for his fourth film as Ian Fleming's James Bond 007.

Along with Daniel Craig, Mendes presented the returning cast, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Rory Kinnear as well as introducing Christoph Waltz, Léa Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Monica Bellucci and Andrew Scott. 

Mendes also revealed Bond's sleek new Aston Martin, the DB10, created exclusively for "Spectre."

In the film, 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.

The 007 production will be based at Pinewood Studios, and on location in London, Mexico City, Rome and Tangier and Erfoud, in Morocco.  Bond will return to the snow once again, this time in Sölden, along with other Austrian locations, Obertilliach, and Lake Altaussee.

Commenting on the announcement, Wilson and Broccoli said, "We're excited to announce Daniel's fourth installment in the series and thrilled that Sam has taken on the challenge of following on the success of `Skyfall'with `Spectre.'"

Written by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, Director of Photography is Hoyte van Hoytema and Editor is Lee Smith.  Production Designer, Dennis Gassner returns along with Costume Designer, Jany Temime and Composer, Thomas Newman.  Action Specialist, Alexander Witt is the 2nd Unit Director.  Stunt Coordinator is Gary Powell, SFX Supervisor is Chris Corbould, and Visual Effects Supervisor is Steve Begg.

`Skyfall,' the 23rd James Bond film, was a worldwide box office phenomenon, opening #1 in 70 territories around the world, taking over $1.1 billion worldwide and setting a new all-time box office record in the UK by becoming the first film to take over £100 million. 

The launch of "Spectre" was streamed live on 007.com andFacebook.com/JamesBond007, and the video is now available on demand at both sites. 

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 in November 2015, "Spectre" will be distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

Final 4 of The Amazing Race Philippines Season 2 Revealed During the Most Heartbreaking Elimination

Final 4 of The Amazing Race Philippines Season 2 Revealed During the Most Heartbreaking Elimination


"It was indeed the most heartmelting elimination yet in the 2 season history of the local version of hit reality show The Amazing Race. Team Mag-Ama might not be my favorite team but I honestly say, I wanted them to win," Game Master Derek Ramsay said during last Monday night's presscon where the Final 4 teams of The Amazing Race Philippines Season 2 were introduced to some member of the press.

After an emotionally charged episode last Saturday and despite the second chance they got from the non-elimination leg, it seems like mag-ama AJ and Jody Saliba are not destined to race any longer.

As the race took the remaining six teams from Bohol to Iloilo, the father-and-son tandem was able to bounce back to the second place, giving them a huge chance to be part of the season’s Final Four racers. However, every other team in the Race thought their ‘second chance’ is unfair and used their U-Turn cards on them. Chefs Roch Hernandez and Eji Estillore, last week’s pit stop winner and one of the teams who voted against the Mag-ama, said 52-year-old AJ needs to rest since the challenges are already catching up on his age.

For this leg, the teams had to eat bowls of authentic La Paz Batchoy at Netong’s Original La Paz Batchoy in a public market in La Paz before proceeding to Sunset Royal Beach Resort in Anhawatan, Oton to accomplish an Intersection task that required them to body-paint with a member of another team following the traditions of the Iloilo Paraw Regetta Festival. From the body-painting challenge, teams headed to Mandurriao Public Market for a Detour task and to Iloilo City Proper for a challenge that required them to ask locals to lead them around the city while blind-folded. The latter challenge proved to be very meaningful and life-changing for the racers as they discovered that their next clue would be handed over by handicapped, blind young students named Tammi and Marvi. The racers also discovered that the supposed pit stop at the old Iloilo Rehabilitation Center was “infested with zombies” and they had to “battle the undead” before finally getting the clue, which led them to the “new” pit stop located at a higher ground: the Heliport of Injap Tower in Mandurriao — one of the highest points in Western Visayas.

Dating Couple Matthew Edwards and Phoebe Walker had a great start during the beginning of Leg 8, which eventually got them the first spot and a PHP 200,000 pit-stop prize from PLDT Home Ultera. They were followed by magkapatid Jet and Yna Cruz and chefs Roch and Eji who met at the pit stop to be checked-in second and third placers, respectively. “Miracle Boys” Mr. Pogi buddies Kelvin Engles and John Paul Duray secured themselves the final safe spot at the fourth place, leaving teams Mag-ama and Nerds out of the race.

Despite their loss, team AJ and Jody said they have no regrets and admitted the Race was one of the most life-changing parts of their lives:

We raced as hard as we can. Fair as possible, and as fast as we can. Unfortunately it was a double elimination. But no regrets,” said Jody in a tweet on their team’s official Twitter account.

Now down to the Race’s final four teams, the remaining two legs promise viewers a lot of heart-stopping action and real-life drama as teams Dating Couple, Magkapatid, Chefs and Mr. Pogi will be facing ordeals testing their patience, strength of relationships, remaining stamina, and ultimately, their will to win.

Who will become part of the Top 3? And who will emerge as the ultimate victors of this season’s Amazing Race?

Don’t miss the riveting action and adventure on the final week of The Amazing Race Philippines 2!

Available through Sun Plan 450, 600 and 999, subscribers can enjoy smartphone bundles that come with a tablet or wearable device, powered by unlimited Sun texts, Sun calls, texts to other networks, mobile surfing and so much more.

Devices offered under Sun Postpaid Bundle plans include the Alcatel One Touch smartphone- Boomband bundle for fitness buffs, the Polaroid PoGo watch and PROF700 Android smartphone for the connectivity junkie, the Nokia Treasure Tag- Lumia smartphone tandem for the security-conscious and the Samsung phone and tablet for the multi-device users.

Through the Sun Shop on Wheels, more Filipinos can access our best-value offers, including our latest Postpaid bundles,” said Ms. Joan Marie Dueñas, Vice President and Head for Sun Cellular Postpaid. “Soon, we will also be launching exclusive Sun Shop on Wheels offers to underscore our commitment to connect Filipinos to each other, and to provide more good choices to our subscribers.
