1. It was announced yesterday that director Sam Mendes will direct the next James Bond film, Bond 24 after the success of Skyfall in 2012. The film is set to be released in 2015.
Here’s an Edelstein review where he speaks directly to Mendes' take on Bond:

Director Sam Mendes’ Skyfall also shows its hero from a different angle. Mendes has a cheeky attitude toward James Bonds old and new — toward the conflict between the traditional Bond established by Sean Connery and the rough, hurting, rather self-indulgent persona of Daniel Craig’s Bond. Mendes and co-writer John Logan are old Shakespeare hands, and they play up the Coriolanus-like reluctance of Craig’s 007 to do what’s expected of him: to don the tuxedos, take his martinis shaken not stirred, and commit himself unreservedly to queen and country.
