Mendes Goes Back to Bond

Three years ago director Sam Mendes spearheaded the 50th anniversary 007 pic Skyfall, and brought the series its biggest box office to date. As such, it's not altogether surprising that the Bond braintrust wanted him back for Spectre, the latest entry in the series. What is somewhat surprising is that the in-demand Oscar winner decided to re-up for another go in the franchise trenches. Part of this can be chalked up to his longstanding friendship with current 007 Daniel Craig (who he directed in 2002's Road to Perdition), but for more on Mendes' reasons for returning, check out the video blog below. (And look for Spectre in theaters this November.)
