The highly anticipated 23rd installment of the James Bond franchise, "Skyfall," does not premiere until November 9th; however, dedicated Bond fans have been rewarded with a new chart from The Economist providing statistics on who is the most Bond of the six actors who have played the iconic role.
What are Bond's three favorite things? Bond is driven by sexy women, alcohol and killing as many helpless henchmen as possible. The handy chart gives the average kills, martinis, and conquest per film for each Bond actor.
When looking at the chart it would appear that Pierce Brosnan would be the most violent of all the Bonds, with a lot more kills than any of the others. Daniel Craig (currently Bond) has averaged an incredible amount of martinis in his two films, perhaps a result of the slightly darker nature of the newest films.
Machete is officially set to kill in 2013. The former Mexican federale will return next year in "Machete Kills," Robert Rodriguez's follow-up to the original, which was based on a fake trailer he made for "Grindhouse."
Open Road Films just picked up the North American distribution rights to the sequel, and the first image from the movie hit the web shortly after the announcement to celebrate.

We cannot wait to meet Dr. King Schultz in "Django Unchained."
The folks over at Columbia Pictures must have known that fans are thrilled to see what Christoph Waltz's second partnership with director Quentin Tarantino will look like, because a new poster for the flick focuses specifically on Schultz. With his top hat on and his gun in hand, Waltz makes a very intimidating bounty hunter.
A few new stills from "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" have debuted online proving that Elijah Wood has not aged in the decade since "The Lord of the Rings." Seriously.
The photos come from the Brazilian site Cinemarcado (via Comic Book Movie) and don't show us anything terribly new aside from the eternally youthful Wood.
They are, however, worth checking out, which you can do after the jump!
To coincide with the debut of the first "Evil Dead" footage at New York Comic Con, the first image from the upcoming remake has hit the web.
Let's be honest: it looks great. Fans who saw the new footage at NYCC said that it was over-the-top gory and scary, and we get a taste of that in this image, which comes courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. Here we see leading lady Jane Levy looking a bit different than she usually does. Maybe she won't survive as long as we had anticipated when we learned that Levy would be playing the movie's main character.
Over on MTV News, we spent the morning unpacking the new "Django Unchained" poster, because, quite frankly, we can't get enough of it.
For the second domestic preview, Quentin Tarantino had our curiosity, and then he upped the spaghetti western. Now he has our attention. The trailer showed segments from Broomhilda's story, as well as, Django's climactic gun fight.
We've broken down the trailer to our most talked-about moments, so take a look after the jump!
The "Jurassic Park" series has always been a cash cow, and for that reason, it seems like there has always been an ongoing attempt to bring it back to the screen for a fourth iteration. Scripts for a new entry have come and gone without ever seeing the light of day outside some production meetings, but one got further along than we ever knew.
In 2005, "The Departed" writer William Monahan and John Sayles collaborated on a script for "Jurassic Park 4" that involved DNA experiments gone awry. These tests resulted in monstrous human-dino hybrids that—well, what else?—break free and cause chaos. But these hybrids didn't get the intellect of the dinosaurs. They were intelligent enough to fire guns and problem-solve.
The idea didn't make it too far, but it did generate some concept art from ILM designer Carlos Huante. The mock-ups are perhaps the most interesting aspect of this story and show what could have been.

Fresh off of James Bond Day last Friday, we're all excited for "Skyfall." The world's greatest spy is due for some redemption after "The Quantum of Solace," and the lead-up to his latest adventure has us thinking he may get some.
But all of this hype has us asking a few questions about the action legend. Have you ever wondered how much it costs to be James Bond or which actor killed the most people as 007?
Two new infographics (via /Film) have all of those answers for you and more in a nice, easy-to-read package. You can check them out after the jump!
We've gone over it in our heads a million times, but every time we think we get close to cracking the time paradoxical intricacies of "Looper," we lose it.
Thankfully, the folks over at Film.com have concocted this handy infographic to streamline the multiple timelines and help make some sense out of the complicated plot.

Here's a fun fact: there's a new "Die Hard" movie coming out four months from now. Who would have guessed, right?
"A Good Day to Die Hard" hasn't exactly had quite the lead-up we would expect from the latest entry in the series, but then again, it's not 1990 anymore. We'll have to give Detective John McClane the benefit of the doubt here.
A new photo from the fifth film in the series popped up today over at Entertainment Weekly, and it shows McClane and son (Jai Courtney) getting ready for a fire fight.
