I'm a big Mendes fan and am curious to see how he'd tackle a big-budget action flick, especially one as high profile as a James Bond movie. As for details on the movie itself, there's not too much (no Bond girl cast yet), but one interesting tidbit — 23 is partly set in New York. What are your thoughts on Mendes directing — or Bond 23 in general?
James Bond: Interior Style Throughout the Years The James Bond films have been running for over 40 years. Not only do they feature buxom babes and a suave hero, there's also a lot of eye candy in the interior design department. Take a look at some of the interiors from 1962 through current day, as well as some of the products that have made their mark in these films.

Are you a gun-toting, long- and dark-haired lady with a penchant for danger? Then James Bond will love you. I'm still getting over the fact that there was an actual Pussy Galore character in one of the flicks in the Bond franchise. I'm also getting over the fact that researchers from Cleveland State University took the time to delve deeper into the female characteristics preferred by everyone's favorite British spy. A recent study published in the journal Sex Roles proved that of the 195 women in Bond's first 20 films, 40 percent had black hair, 19 percent were brunettes, nine percent were redheads, and 27 percent were blondes.
Their average age was 26, and not surprisingly, he was more likely to sleep with the slimmer, younger, and better-looking women of the bunch. Also, while 007 seemed to end up in sexual liaisons with the longer-haired women, the study concluded that their hair has actually gotten shorter over time. Looking to get a snapshot of the Bond's ideal lady and his chauvinistic ways? The researchers recommend checking out Lois Chiles as Dr. Holly Goodhead (groan) in Moonraker or Lana Wood as Plenty O'Toole (ugh) in Diamonds Are Forever.
It's the ultimate showdown (of today): Jason Bourne vs. James Bond! Which character do you prefer? Matt Damon recently had some nasty words to say about James Bond and though I can see his point, I still enjoy the classic character — especially as interpreted by our most recent Bond, Daniel Craig.
So who is it for you: James Bond or Jason Bourne?
Part of the fun of James Bond movies (like this weekend's Quantum of Solace) is seeing what each new actor brings to the role. There are always a few givens, since Bond has to be charming, stylish, clever and good with a gun. Oh, and he has to look great in a tux.
But this leaves room for variation, with each actor having a different take on how slick or funny or tough his Bond is. So who do you think makes the best James Bond?
Her name is Kurylenko, Olga Kurylenko. While acting is her forte, there's no denying the killer beauty of my new Fab favorite. Olga took the opportunity to show off her sultry and sophisticated style while out on her nationwide promotion of Quantum of Solace. Bond's lady doesn't disappoint. While you eagerly await the movie, quench your thirst and check out some of Olga's hottest looks. P.S. Happy birthday, Olga!
