Lingaa Rajni ............ Bond Movie Spectre and its heroine Monica Bellucci

Five Range Rover Sports were reportedly among the vehicles stolen from a garage in northern Germany. The cars, worth an estimated £630,000, had been specially modified for the movie project and were awaiting transport to the Alps for filming which begins next week. It is not known if the Range Rovers were fitted with typical super-spy gadgets, but it is likely that new cars will have to be built due to their specific requirements for the film which sees Daniel Craig play James Bond for a fourth time. German police admit they can’t find any trace of the missing vehicles amid claims the theft could delay location filming. Only last week the cast and crew – along with Bond’s latest Aston Martin DB10 car – gathered in front of the world’s media at Pinewood Studios, the traditional production base for the movies where rehearsals are taking place.

The entire cine industry is talking about Superstar Rajinikanth starrer ‘Lingaa’ which by some accounts  is sold for more than 200 crores – with such fanfare the film irrespective of the storyline should gross much – yet there is always over-expectation.  Speaking during the curtain raiser event of "Lingaa" in Hyderabad, Rajinikanth said that he had never been as nervous as he was while romancing Sonakshi, whom he has known since she was little.  "The worst punishment god can give actors like me who are in their 60s is to sing duets. I found shooting duets with Sonakshi more challenging than doing stunts atop a moving train in the film," Rajinikanth told reporters at the curtain-raiser of the film's Telugu version, reported IANS. 

This is no post on Sonakshi or Lingaa – but on Spectre, the Bond movie – and its heroine in particular. The good looking raven-haired beauty will become officially the oldest-ever Bond girl when she appears in the new 007 film ‘Spectre’  opposite Daniel Craig next year.  "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes, who is once more taking the helm, confirmed the new title and cast in a live event from Pinewood Studios in the UK that was streamed on YouTube.

Plot details on "Spectre" remain thin, though an official synopsis reads, "A cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind ‘Specture’.  The title suggests a return of the shadowy Spectre organisation, headed by Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the iconic cat-stroking Bond villain. Christoph Waltz's character is called "Oberhauser”-   Spectre will be the twenty-fourth James Bond film produced by Eon Productions. It will be the second film in the series directed by Sam Mendes and will feature Daniel Craig in his fourth performance as James Bond and Christoph Waltzas Franz Oberhauser, the film's villain.  Spectre is scheduled to be released on in Oct 2015  in the United Kingdom.

The first picture has been released - Judi Dench's M's porcelain British Bulldog ornament - which she left the spy, played by Daniel Craig , in her will - features in the snap which was posted on James Bond's official Facebook page. Daniel Craig, 46, playing Bond  will have Monica Bellucci , 50 as the main Bond girl in the upcoming Bond flick Spectre....

There are high expectations for the film – to be released next November 6 – as its predecessor was the biggest movie ever at the UK box office, taking in excess of £100million. It will be shot on location in London, Mexico City, Rome, Tangier and Erfoud, in Morocco, as well as at Pinewood, Bucks.

Monica Bellucci (1964) is an Italian actress and fashion model.  She's tall, smart, saucy and sexy just like the Bond girls are meant to be ~ and at 50+ she is announced as Bond girl in the upcoming movie. The Italian beauty has created a history for becoming the oldest Bond girl of all times. Prior to her, actress Honor Blackman played Pussy Galore in 1964's "Goldfinger" and she was 39-years-old then !
