Celebrate Daniel Craig's Bond Comeback With This Video Of All His Kills
Craig, Daniel Craig, is poised to reprise his role as 007 for a fifth time. Though the upcoming film is still untitled and has no set run date, producer Barbara Broccoli appears to have convinced Craig to sign on as James Bond for the series’ 25th film, according to The Daily Mirror.
The news is a bit surprising, given that the 48-year-old actor previously announced that he’d rather “slash my wrists” than play the titular character again.
Craig’s 007 is a departure from the over-the-top and gadget-heavy Bond films of the past. He’s more of a brooding, government-sanctioned super-assassin than the jokey, campy spy Bonds of yesteryear.
But with Bond back wearing a sharp tuxedo and rocking a Walther PPK, a few things are certain: gunfights, nice cars, beautiful women, and loads of dead bad guys.
From Casino Royale to Spectre, Craig’s Bond has survived shootouts, knife fights, deadly car chases, torture, friendly fire, and poison, and taken out scores of villains in the process: 85, to be exact.
Impressive to be sure, but if Bond ever got into a fight with John Wick, my money would be on the latter.
The U.S. government failed to effectively account for nearly $715.8 million in weapons and equipment allocated to Syrian partners as part of the multinational counter-ISIS fight, according to a new report from the Defense Department inspector general.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), has long been seen as an apologist for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, whom she met during a secret trip to Damascus in January 2017.
Most recently, a video was posted on Twitter shows Gabbard evading a question about whether Assad is a war criminal.
Since Gabbard is the only actively serving member of the military who is running for president — she is a major in the Hawaii Army National Guard — Task & Purpose sought to clarify whether she believes Assad has used chlorine gas and chemical weapons to kill his own people.
The Army is almost doubling its purchase of new bolt-action Precision Sniper Rifles as its primary anti-personnel sniper system of choice, according to budget documents.
Air Force gunsmiths recently completed delivery of a new M4-style carbine designed to break down small enough to fit under most pilot ejection seats.
NEWPORT -- The Office of Naval Inspector General has cleared former Naval War College president Rear Adm. Jeffrey A. Harley of most of the allegations of misconduct claimed to have occurred after he took command of the 136-year-old school in July 2016, The Providence Journal has learned.
Harley, in one of a series of interviews with the The Journal, called the findings "deeply gratifying." He said many of the most sensational allegations -- "offers of 'free hugs' and games of Twister in his office" -- reflected a misunderstanding of his sense of humor, which he describes as "quirky," but which he says was intended to ease tensions in what can be a stressful environment.
The allegations, reported last year by the Associated Press, prompted a national controversy that led to Harley leaving the college presidency after almost three years in office.
