Bond business makes a killing out of Brosnan

Pierce Brosnan has been confirmed as the most profitable ever James Bond after his new film Tommorow Never Dies topped ticket sales of $140m (pounds 84m) world-wide since opening 10 days ago.

The Critics: Cries And Whispers: The real Bond is Moore, Roger Moore

we're no strangers to controversy here at Cries & Whispers. Our radical treatises, from "Liv Tyler doesn't look all that gorgeous to me" to "I'm not sure if Anna from This Life is such a brilliant actor", have challenged the assumptions of the age, time and time again. And today we're going to devour the meat of popular culture's most sacred cow - right off the bone. Hate-mail and death threats be damned. This is the column that dares to say: Roger Moore was a superb James Bond.

Film: The Pryce of villainy

After playing a string of television baddies, Jonathan Pryce comes to the big screen as the unhinged villain of the latest big-budget Bond film. But, Jasper Rees asks, how does this square with his thoughtful role in the high-brow, First World War film, `Regeneration'?

Film: Too much female Bonding

It's that time of year again. A new James Bond film, full of girls and gadgets, gags and more girls. Sarah Gristwood asks why it is that the hero, J Bond himself, is losing his virility while the girls are gaining power? Maybe that's the point.
