You know how people say something isn’t true unless it’s true?
For example, speculation has been that Daniel Craig would eventually return as the iconic 007 after a long break following the Spectre. That’s been what many people (including myself) have believed to be true for quite some time, in our minds.
Apologies, Mr. Craig/James Bond/007.
This is amazing news. While Sean Connery will always be known as the greatest James Bond in cinematic history, Daniel Craig has given the Scotsman a serious run for his money. Partly because Daniel Craig has brought unrivaled modernity, realism and grit to the character. But also in part because Daniel Craig’s James Bond is a more complicated and conflicted character with a relatable (as relatable as 007 can be) emotional range to how a normal person would react and think beyond the flashy gadgets and unforgettable catchphrases.
So, it’s officially one more film for Daniel Craig as James Bond. And that’s exactly what 007 fans have been saying since Mr. Craig’s brilliant first-go as the British spy in Casino Royale back in 2006. And we’ll keep on saying it…one more film…one more film…one more film, please.
Just don’t ask Daniel Craig that one question two days after wrapping Bond 25 (title TBD).
P.S. Remember when “Damn, Daniel!” was a Snapchat craze?
The first silver screen movie starring Wonder Woman is, yes, doing wonderfully with audiences and critics alike.
Actually, to be blunt, Wonder Woman is kicking some serious ass in movie theaters across the
“With $100.5 million in North America and an additional $122.5 million internationally, Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman can boast the biggest-ever opening weekend for a film directed by a woman, Variety reports.”

Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman) was the scene stealer in 2016s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Ms. Gadot proved she could hang alongside Batman and Superman. Now, she is proving she can handle the big screen all by herself.
A super statement in more ways than one.
In Wonder Woman, Ms. Gadot shows off her skills and natural characteristics of a superhero capable of shining in the brightest cinematic spotlight and, more importantly, in the cultural spotlight for women and young girls. And to celebrate the historic opening weekend, let’s listen to the epic theme song for Wonder Woman written and produced by the brilliant musicial composer Hans Zimmer from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The specific title of the Wonder Woman theme above is, “Is She with You?”
No, she’s with all of us.
Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
