Take a Look at This! Daniel Craig in the Upcoming Bond Movie, "Skyfall!" 

So, the only two reasons I'm excited to see yet another James Bond movie, the 23rd film to be exact, is 1) because of director Sam Mendes who can truly tell a good story, and 2) because of the cast which features Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Berenice Marlohe, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Albert Finney and Judi Dench.

I guess those two reasons are enough for me to watch Daniel Craig in his 3rd outing as Bond, James Bond...and while we're at it -- the picture above is the first official image released by Sony.

Are you excited to see Craig as Bond again?

Either or, "Skyfall" will fall into the U.K. theaters on October 26 and in the US on November 9.

Get Ready for Katy Perry Documentary Concert in Glorious 3D! 

Much like Justin Bieber before her, Paramount is planning an untitled 3D film starring the super-hot pop songstress Katy Perry. Deadline told us that it's already shot by director Nanette Bernstein (I think Deadline meant Nanette Burstein, director of 2001's mini-series "Say It Loud: A Celebration of Black Music in America," "The Kid Stays in the Picture," and "American Teen").

And much like Bieber's "Never Say Never" (which I actually liked, I know...sorry!), this Perry docu-concert will be about her growing up as Katy Hudson with her gospel background before dumping that last name and deciding to kiss a girl and liking it!

Will the 3D film talk about the one who got away, Russell Brand? Stay tuned...

The Perry 3D flick is being planned for a June or July release this year.
