daniel craig range rover sport

Daniel Craig of '007' fame was paid the hefty sum of $1 million to appear at a Range Rover event at the New York City Auto Show in Manhattan.  Fantastic, right? Not really.

Fans who turned out to see the James Bond actor were upset when he left the venue seven minutes after making  his grand entrance behind the wheel of a luxury ride.  He exited the vehicle and posed briefly for photographers before beating feet for the exit.

Several guests spoke about their disappointment to the NY Post, saying, "“He didn’t even give a speech.” Another said, “I couldn’t even tell if he was actually here!”

Craig received top billing in order to draw consumers to the event and appeared in a video debuting the $70,000-plus 2014 Range Rover Sport.

A rep for Land Rover said, “We won’t comment on our relationship with Mr. Craig beyond confirming that Land Rover supports the charity S.A.F.E of which the actor is a patron and will continue its charitable efforts with a vehicle donation later this year.”

S.A.F.E is a Kenyan-based charity supporting the fight against a number of issues including HIV/AIDS and election violence.

skyfall hits 1 billion mark at box office

Actor Daniel Craig has earned significant bragging rights for his latest box office hit 'Skyfall.'   The spy film has joined an exclusive handful of films to gross $1 billion.

The latest thriller in the James Bond franchise is actually the 23rd installment and is now in the record books as the most successful of the series to date.

Domestically the movie earned $239.6 million but internationally grossed $710.6 million.  Suffice it to say ... everyone loves James Bond.

'Skyfall' is the third film to reach the $1 billion mark in 2012.  Also in this elite category are 'The Avengers' and 'The Dark Knight Rises.'

Historically, the Bond film is ranked #14 in gross earnings.  That position is expected to improve since it is still doing well in theaters.

Fun fact: the swim trunks worn by the actor during the filming of 'Casino Royale' brought in $72,000 at auction earlier this year - pics.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the James Bond series, producers crafted Skyfall with some nostalgic touches that included bringing back 007's vintage car.

The film has a throwback feel with the use of dynamite and improvised weapons as Bond, skillfully portrayed by Daniel Craig, his boss M, and an old codger from 007's past fight off a small army of men led by an unstable former agent.   Javier Bardem's character is seeking revenge against his former boss--British spymaster M, portrayed by Dame Judi Dench.

Skyfall, the 23rd Bond movie, shattered the U.S. weekend record for the successful franchise, debuting with $87.8 million at the box office.  The film has earned $586 million worldwide.

Rory Bruer, head of distribution at Sony said, "It's quite a testament to Bond.  What a great anniversary present."

Rounding out the Top 5 box office hit:  #2 Wreck-it-Ralph ($33 million), #3 Flight ($15.1 million), #4 Argo ($6.7 million), #5 Taken ($4 million).

cast set for the girl with the dragon tattoo rooney mara and dan

Actress Rooney Mara has been cast in the coveted role of Lisbeth Salander in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo".  The film will be a Hollywood adaptation of Stieg Larsson's best-selling novel by the same name.

She will star with Daniel Craig, who will portray Mikael Blomkvist.  Robin Wright, the ex of Sean Penn, has snagged the role of Erika Berger.

The only bad news is that fans of the trilogy will have to wait until December 2011 to see what is sure to be a blockbuster hit on the big screen.

Mara previously appeared in "A Nightmare on Elm Street", and will be seen in the upcoming project "The Social Network".  Her father, Timothy Mara, is the VP of Player Evaluation for the New York Giants.

daniel craig has had plastic surgery

Daniel Craig is the sexiest and hottest 007 to ever hit the big screen, in our humble opinion.  The 40 year old actor suffered an accident in June while filming his latest blockbuster, Quantum of Solace.

Filming was actually halted while Craig hooked up with an excellent plastic surgeon to deal with the results of an ill placed kick by one of his co-stars.  He actually severed the tip of a finger and suffered a gash on his face that required eight stitches.

Craig has also undergone shoulder surgery during his down time between wrapping the film and it's release in November.  That issue was not related to his accident but rather a nagging problem that needed to be dealt with.  He is now wearing a sling on his arm that has been seen in recent photographs while he has been making the rounds in publicity appearances.

You can catch him on Jay Leno next week.  He will appear on The Tonight Show on October 17.
