Hottie Daniel Craig looked suave, sophisticated and rather serious on the set of the latest Bond installment - Skyfall, currently filming in Istanbul, Turkey.
Kitted out in an ever-so “Bond” fitted grey flannel suit and tie, the British star brought chaos to the local town’s center while shooting his daredevil stunt-scenes.
Earlier in the day however, the actor was all smiles as he took time out of his busy shooting schedule for a little stroll around a Turkish market with his wifey – actress Rachel Weisz (inset pic) who joined him on set.
At a press call for Skyfall last Sunday, Daniel told reporters, “[Director Sam Mendes and I] had a four-year break to concentrate on getting this one as good as possible. We’ve just tried to make the best movie we can.”
He added. “We’re both huge Bond Fans, it’s the 50th anniversary this year and that’s a little pressure but a nice pressure to have.”
The new flick also starring Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe and Ola Rapace, is set for release November 9, and fans will get to see Bond’s loyalty to M played by Dame Judi Dench on the rocks as her past comes back for a visit. But in true 007 style, Bond is there to destroy any harm by using his recognizable stealth!
I for one cannot WAIT to see this film!

In the new film called The Whistleblower, Rachel Weisz portrays an American police officer who takes a job as a United Nations peacekeeper in Bosnia and exposes sex trafficking of young girls that was being ignored and sometimes organized by corrupt UN employees.
Despite (or perhaps because of) the fact that the film focuses on corruption inside the peace-oriented international organization, The Whistleblower will be screened at UN headquarters and will precede a panel discussion about the controversial issues presented in the film.
Reportedly, top UN officials were conflicted about whether they should embrace the film, which depicts UN peacekeepers partaking in deplorable activities; however, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon ultimately collaborated with the film’s director, Larysa Kondracki, to support the film and arrange the screening. Evidently, the shocking incidents, as illustrated in the film, eventually did lead to a series of internal reforms and the establishment of a zero-tolerance policy regarding sexual exploitation and abuse by UN peacekeepers. The special screening and panel discussion will take place on October 10th.
It is always encouraging when Hollywood directors are able to use their work to bring public attention to controversial and socially problematic issues such as this one. Well done Larysa Kondracki!

Newlyweds Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig were recently observed leaving the School of Visual Arts Theatre in New York where they attended a promotional event for Weisz’s film The Whistleblower. Weisz was eye-catching in a short form-fitting red dress, while Craig appeared gloomy in a casual grey t-shirt, jeans, and a baseball cap.
Although one would expect the James Bond actor to seem overjoyed to be in the honeymoon phase of his marriage to a beautiful movie star, maybe he was not in a celebratory mood because of the fact that his latest film, Cowboys and Aliens, was not as profitable as he wanted it to be.
Hopefully, Daniel’s next big film, the American remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, will live up to the great expectations established for that project. The highly anticipated film is scheduled to be released on December 21st, 2011. Good luck Daniel!

Talk about secret service, that’s secret wedding service in this case, as James Bond star Daniel Craig has married his stunning girlfriend Rachel Weisz in a hush-hush ceremony in New York State… How verrrrry 007, indeed!
In fact, it was so top secret there were only FOUR guests invited. Daniel’s 18-year-old daughter Ella and Rachel’s son Henry, along with two close family friends.
This is the first marriage for Weisz and the second for the James Bond star. The British couple started dating while on the set of new thriller Dream House last year but apart from a few rare sightings together; the romance has been kept very private.
A source close to the couple said, “Daniel and Rachel insisted on having a small, quiet wedding. They are madly in love and couldn’t wait to be husband and wife but they wanted minimum fuss. They had a couple of friends as witnesses and their children from previous relationships and that was it.”
When you know you’re with the right person…you just know! So why delay such a happy occasion? This is great news for the lovely couple and we wish them all the happiness together!

On screen he plays secret agent and ladies man, James Bond, and now it seems Daniel Craig has a ‘license to thrill’ the ladies in real life too, as he took his new leading lady, Rachel Weisz, on a shopping spree in London’s Mayfair…Every girl’s (and boy’s) dream, surely?
The couple tried to avoid being seen together, however it looks like they didn’t try hard enough as they were spotted leaving the Louis Vuitton store and getting into his waiting BMW…Not quite 007′s Aston Martin but I guess it’ll do.
Rachel and Daniel have been dating since last December after Weisz split from her film director fiancé Darren Aronofsky after nine years together. They still remain close as they have a four-year-old son together, Henry. But Craig may have to keep a close eye on his new lady as the British actress in currently filming her latest movie, 360, with newly single and fellow Brit, Jude Law!
The beautiful Weisz was seen enjoying a number of passionate kisses with co-star Law during filming only last week… It all sounds like a major drama in itself doesn’t it? I’m pretty sure it’s all very innocent and beside who in their right mind would try taking on James Bond! I know I wouldn’t!

British actress Rachel Weisz, and top director Darren Aronofsky, have called it quits after nine years together.
The star was spotted putting on a brave face earlier today while out and about in New York, the first time since announcing the split.
TMZ.com quoting unnamed sources, said earlier today that Weisz has been ‘linked’ to James Bond actor Daniel Craig, her co-star in the upcoming thriller Dream House for months. This could not be confirmed. However, sources have also told SBGLA that Rachel is said to be ‘smitten’ with Craig.
Reps for Aronofsky and Weisz have divulged that the two have been separated for quite a few months and that not only will they seek joint custody of their four-year-old son Henry Chance, but also committed to raising him together in New York.
Back in January, Rachel who won a ‘best supporting actress’ Oscar for the 2005 movie The Constant Gardener, told the ladies of The View that she felt it was time to tie the knot. She said: “It’s just a feeling, I know it’s a funny thing.”
During a Redbook interview in 2009, Rachel confessed,” Darren and I are completely committed to ‘until death do us part,’ although we haven’t made it official with the paperwork yet…
It’s not for any political reason or that we’re waiting for this or for that, but maybe one day we will have an official ceremony. I don’t think balance is something you get from someone else; it’s something women have to find from within.”
She added: “For me, finding balance is still a work in progress. Darren provides the foundation, but I’m still figuring out my own juggling act.”
Sadly now, this quiet and professional relationship has hit the skids, it seems… Hopefully little Henry isn’t the one caught up in middle of the split-drama! We wish Rach’ and Dazza the best of luck however, on all fronts.

The word is out and according to EW, Academy-Award winning actress, Rachel Weisz is tipped to take on the iconic role of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in an upcoming biopic currently being packaged by those super-agents at CAA.
The project we are told is now being shopped to all the major studios.
The story is based around Jackie O’s life in the days that immediately followed the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy.
I am a big fan of Rachel’s work, but it’ll be interesting to see how she’ll handle such a demanding role. Weisz’s fiancée, director Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler) is attached to direct and produce, along with his producing partner Scott Franklin and their Protozoa Pictures film company.
This marks Weisz and Aronofsky’s second collaboration after 2006’s The Fountain.
We love this idea… O-Yes we do!
