For me, Theme Song (whoever sings it) + Opening Credits = Movie Heaven! :D They make the Opening Credits such a work of art (and Daniel is the star of this too) that it shouldn't really make such a problem of who's singing it...

A THIRD TRAILER COMING???
Ooooh, when, when???!!!

On the other hand, not TOO MANY spoilers please!!! :wink:

James Bond 007: Spectre Bond girl Stephanie Sigman reveals her secrets

DANIEL Craig may be difficult on set but he is also charming and surprisingly helpful, his latest Bond Girl Stephanie Sigman has said.
“Who isn’t difficult? I’m difficult as an artist,â€￾ she told news.com.au. “I like difficult people because that means they’re perfectionists and they’re passionate. I have to say I was very surprised because I found a true artist, a real actor on set. Not only a famous guy or a celebrity, which I was worried about because I didn’t know him before.
“I found this guy who was worried about scenes. He actually helped me a lot, we were doing this long shoot, it was so technical and he’s very experienced doing films. He was helping me with how to move with the camera. I learned a lot from him. I was very surprised, in a good way.â€￾

Sigman is glowing. It’s an overwhelmingly humid day in New York City, but there’s not a hair out of place on this Mexican beauty, who has just landed the biggest gig of her career as a Bond Girl in the next instalment of James Bond, Spectre.
Dubbed the first Mexican Bond girl, you can see she’s new to the show business big league, there’s an intensity in her eyes and a sincerity in her smile.
She said there was a lot of expectation associated with the role which could be stressful.
“But I try not to think about the expectations of other people because there’s always going to be expectations,â€￾ she said.

It’s a big day for Sigman, in just a few hours her collaboration with Belvedere Vodka will be announced to the world. Sigman will appear in the franchise’s global advertising campaign, a television commercial described as “a journey revealing the intricacies of the legendary martini cocktailâ€￾.
It’s a return to form for Bond, who in the last instalment, Skyfall, switched swigging from his classic vodka martini to Heineken beer in a $45 million collaboration.
“I’m an actress, not a model, this is my first campaign, I hope this is just the beginning,â€￾ Sigman told news.com.au
“It’s inspired, but it’s different,â€￾ she says of the campaign.
“It has a twist. It’s different. I really like the fact that in the commercial I play this version of me that’s very powerful and independent. You can see a woman walking into a bar by herself, which says something. She knows what she wants. She wants to get the perfect martini.â€￾
But there’s more to being a Bond Girl than martini’s and men. In a sit down interview, Sigman revealed the secrets to being Bond — and the highs and the lows that comes with it.


ON THE PRESSURE OF BEING A BOND GIRL
To be honest there’s a lot of expectation and sometimes that’s stressing. But I try not to think about the expectations of other people because there’s always going to be expectations. Some people are going to like what you’re going to do some aren’t going to like it. That’s the way art is. Films are a very personal experience — just like a martini — so I try to think about what I like, what projects I like to be in, and make sure I feel proud about it because at the end, I’m the only one that’s going to look back, and feel proud or not about what I was doing.
So far I think I’ve been doing good, I’m proud of everything. If people don’t like it, I’m so sorry but I hope they do. It’s the only way to be happy. Don’t worry too much about what other people say. You’re never going to make everyone happy.

THE BEST THING ABOUT WORKING WITH DANIEL CRAIG
He’s hot. The best thing he has is his charming personality.

WOULD SHE EVER CALL DANIEL CRAIG IN AN EMERGENCY?
No, most times as actors you go and do your job, you’re very professional, then you go home. That doesn’t mean that we don’t get along, we did and had great conversation. I wouldn’t say we were friends though. Maybe one day.

DIRECTOR SAM MENDES’ DIFFICULT ADVICE
Sam Mendes gave me some advice about acting and the industry in general. He said to stay true to who you are and the projects you want to do. It’s very clever and it’s very easy to say, but very hard to do.

SPECTRE’S MYSTERIOUS OPENING SCENE
I really, honestly, think it’s going to be one of the greatest opening sequences ever. Not only us, but the producers are really happy with it because it’s just amazing, it’s beautiful and it’s also in my country, so I’m proud.

SPECTRE’S TRAILER TELLS YOU MORE THAN YOU THINK
It tells you that James Bond has become this more human complex and dark character, and that’s actually something that makes any movie more interesting.
ON THE SECRECY SURROUNDING HER CHARACTER
I think my character is very mysterious to be honest. I wish I could tell you more, but I can’t. I’d have to kill you otherwise.
ON THE PRESSURE OF DIETING
I’ve never been on a diet in my life. I would be happy to, if the character requires, but so far I haven’t. I can eat anything, I eat like a baseball player. I have two brothers, we eat a lot. I’m young, things may change.
ON THE STIGMA OF BEING MEXICO’S FIRST BOND GIRL
I’m not sure about that. There was this Bond girl that was born in Mexico. I haven’t done my research. I don’t care if I’m the first or second one. I feel happy anyway. I’m also showing Mexico City and our big traditions as Mexicans, and that’s very important to me.

ON WORKING WITH AUSTRALIANS
I was working with an Australian actor, Thomas M Wright, on this TV show The Bridge. So far I love Australian people. They’re really cool. Thomas was a very intense actor, that’s what I love about him. I can imagine the acting school in Australia is pretty good because there’s a lot of good actors coming out of Australia. If you’re Australian, be an actor!

Google translated
Barbara Broccoli: "James Bond Daniel Craig IS End of discussion."

We posed the question of Recasting the high priestess of the saga. The answer is clear.


Every week, bookmakers scariest casting directors and fans by announcing 007 new potential candidates to take over the role of James Bond. Idris Elba would be the first black Bond or Damian Lewis, and if it was Tom Hardy ... Yet among gatekeepers, the question does not arise. But absolutely not. Daniel Craig has not finished with the character. Yet we asked Barbara Broccoli, producer of the saga. The answer is final. >>> Idris Elba "too street" to play James Bond >>> And if Tom Hardy became James Bond?

Let's talk about Daniel Craig. Nobody had expected such a performance in Casino Royale.
Barbara Broccoli: Nobody except us (laughs) We expected it. We knew he was going to convince the most skeptical. It is an extraordinary actor. All those who knew the films he had made before Bond should have noticed that when it seizes a role, it completely transforms and becomes the character. It is charismatic on screen, it is extraordinary. >>> All cults generic Bond
Think keep much longer?
(laughs) We hope so!

One can regularly read yet possible successors to the role of advertisements in newspapers. Idris Elba, Michael Fassbender ...

I know. The good side of his ads is that they show the commitment of the public and Bond character to the series, as to be invested in it. So they do all the time suggestions on casting. But in our case, Daniel IS James Bond. End of discussion! Until he himself decides otherwise, we are not, and I even absolutely not add, interested in the idea to consider anyone else in the role. Interview by David Fakrikian 007 Spectre of Sam Mendes with Daniel Craig, Léa Seydoux, Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci was released in theaters on November 11:

As much as Bond is not my EVERYTHING, I love that when the movies are to be released, he's plastered everywhere, talked about a lot, pap'd more (let's hope!!), and interviewed a lot. No such thing as overexposure for us!!

BB sounds pretty emphatic. Damn straight! :D 8) So she should. Those who didn't have faith in him from the beginning were proved wrong. My only concerns are 'how can they keep raising the bar?' and I would still like to see Daniel do other things beside Bond...

Dear SDK, When Skyfall went out and people thought this would be the best Bond Ever, they happen to come up with SPECTRE. so, there´s plenty of room for good writers and great director to feel free and creat incredible stuff, Long reing Daniel!!!! as long as he feels confortable in it of course.
