Ign has an article about the new bond movie. Title of it is a spoiler and it's going to be a big story as it'll annoy a lot of people who are looking to get annoyed.

Spoilers for new bond film

Basically.... Bond is no longer 007. So the new 007 is.....the black female co pilot from captain marvel.

Seriously though, is a strawberry floating awful take. Here's the best paid actress in the world defending her right to take roles away from actors from minority groups, and doing it in the most dismissive, ignorant way.

It's also worth remembering she's doubled down on her defence for Israel recently, after that whole Soda Stream thing.


What roles has she taken from minority actresses (other than possibly Motoko in Ghost in the Shell)?

There are millions of talented black widow spiders that deserved their chance, but no, Hollywood had to cast a blonde human instead :roll:

She was forced to step down from playing a trans man recently in the upcoming Rub and Tug. She originally dug her heels in but popular sentiment turfed her out.

EDIT: The quote her rep gave in response to the criticisms of her playing a trans man was "Tell them they can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto, and Felicity Huffman’s reps for comment”

Yikes.

Makes sense.

Bond quits as an agent, his code number is then taken by a new spy.

I love how they describe it as a "popcorn dropping moment" despite them spoiling it a year before the film is even out :fp: strawberry floating idiocy.

Isn't the point of acting to play things that you aren't? Like, that's what acting is, pretending to be someone else.

I can see people out & about with their pitchforks across the net about Scarjo. I would like to know their thoughts on Robert Downey JR in Tropical Thunder :shifty:

She’s been mouthing off about she has the right to play any role she wants. She might not of rubbed people up the wrong way if she was polite about it

The joke with RDJ was that he was playing a character who was like Scarlett Johansson is accused of being.

God that was a terrible film. Vaughan really has a problem with sequels: the second Kick Ass was atrocious and the Golden Circle was so strawberry floating objectionable I turned it off halfway through (during the scene where Eggsy has to strawberry float a girl under false pretences to get a tracking device in her vagina).

Urgh.

I think he was only producer on Kick-Ass 2, but yes whatever role he's in he seems to have trouble getting sequels right.

The first Kingsmen was a really enjoyable ride with some excellent performances, fun action sequences and was generally a bit of a breath of fresh air. Golden Circle pissed pretty much all of that up the wall unfortunately.

Willing to give him another shot, but I'm definitely waiting on reviews for this one.

Same the first movie twice in the cinema as it was a spectacle of a movie. This looks more of the same.

Beware of IGN they are reporting on the film and mention a quote from the director which had two huge spoilers in. Not even spoilers that fans know. Just random let's ruin 2 scenes spoilers.
