Spectre and the “Curse of Bond”

Posted on by


“The name’s Bond, James Bond.” One of the most iconic lines in movie history comes from one of the most iconic characters on film. James Bond is the suave British secret agent who’s lit up the imagination of young men (myself included) ever since I karate kicked my way out of the cloaca of the tiger that birthed me (or so I’m told).

As most of you already know, Daniel Craig is the last man to step into the big boy boots of the world’s famous spy known for driving cools cars, boning hot women and using the type of gadgets that make us feel funny in our pants.

To those of you who have been living under a rock lately, Daniel Craig was reportedly injured on the sets of the latest Bond film ‘Spectre’ after spraining his knee. This has been the third time that the Bond star has been seriously injured on set. The last time being on the sets of ‘Quantum of Solace’ the Bond flick that was also riddled with many on-set mishaps and what not. And while some Bond fans are beginning to think that the Bond films are jinxed, others are settling for the possibility that Craig could be the one that the specter is after.


The recent incident also caught a former Bond’s attention. The Ex-Bond star, Roger Moore, responsible for seven tongue-out-of-cheek Bond movies (no pun intended) which blighted an era had asked if he could fill in for the injured Daniel Craig. Luckily, God spared us from the cringe inducing innuendos which would have followed.

The good news is that Craig has since recovered from his injury and has returned back to Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, where filming of the Spectre is currently in progress. According to insider reports, Craig’s injury did not cost the film any shooting days and is on schedule to be released next year. Daniel Craig is also signed up for another Bond film after Spectre, and we’ll be here to let you guys know if “the curse of Bond” continues.

The movie Spectre also stars Christoph Waltz who will be playing one of the villainous protagonists, Ralph Fiennes as ‘M’ and Ben Whishaw as Q, the trend setter in creative murder. Other members of the cast also include Lea Seydoux, Monica Bellucci and Dave Bautista since he is feared by the general populace.
