Acclaimed James Bond actor Daniel Craig has shared a hilarious and simple message for whichever actor is next to take on the role of Ian Fleming’s super spy. 

Since Casino Royale blew audiences away back in 2006, Daniel Craig has been widely acclaimed in the role of Ian Fleming’s James Bond.

The British super spy has grown to be the center of one of the world’s biggest and most successful movie franchises, grossing hundreds of millions upon each film’s release.

However, the most recent installment – No Time to Die – has fallen victim to the ongoing global health crisis, seeing its original release date of April 2020 pushed back to November, and then even further to April 2021.

With it previously confirmed that No Time to Die will be Craig’s last outing as the British double-0 agent, rumors have been swirling about who is set to replace him.

Some huge names in the acting world, including Tom Hardy and Idris Elba, have been touted as potential replacements. Whoever picks up the proverbial gauntlet will have a tough task keeping up with the gritty persona and critical praise Craig has received.

Luckily, the actor has some advice for whoever succeeds him in the role. During a virtual appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show, the British star shared his brilliantly simple words of wisdom: “Don’t f**k it up. It’s a beautiful, amazing thing. Leave it better than when you found it.”

We’re not sure if Craig’s advice will comfort his successor, or simply add to the immense pressure that comes with playing such an iconic character.

Either way, it went down well with the show’s host who couldn’t contain his laughter. Only time will tell who succeeds Craig as Bond, and what they will offer to the role.

Barring any further delays, No Time to Die will release in cinemas worldwide in April 2021.

A Disney cosplayer went viral on Instagram after enchanting viewers with her jaw-dropping take on beloved princess, Cinderella. 

One of the most iconic animated films of all time, Cinderella is still as influential as it was when it made its debut in 1950. The Disney adaptation brought a magical take on a classic fairytale and is often considered the best version of the story.

Prolific cosplayer ‘Anastasia Lion’ celebrated the beloved movie by bringing its princess protagonist to life with her insanely accurate costume. Her stunning re-creation of the heroine will be sure to leave fans in awe.

The fairy tale centers on Cinderella, who is mistreated by her wicked stepmother. Her fate changes, however, when her fairy godmother transforms her into a princess so that she can attend the Royal Ball.

Cosplayer Anastasia Lion made waves on social media when she shared her true-to-life take on the Disney heroine. The Russian-based artist faithfully re-created the character’s look from the beginning of the movie when she is a servant for her step-family.

Photographer ‘ph_mosienko’ brilliantly captured the moment, with their work bringing the animation’s visual style to life. Anastasia looks so much like the Disney princess, it’s almost as if she’s walked out of the screen.

In another stunning shot by Elizaveta, the cosplayer showed off her depiction of Cinderella’s flowing blue dress which she wears to the Royal Ball. The gorgeous stone pillars and flowing flowers in the background bring the whole piece together, as it truly looks like the princess is fleeing the event before midnight. 

Despite releasing over 70 years ago, Walt Disney’s enchanting take on the classic folk tale has become iconic in pop culture. Viewers around the world still love the film, and it’s popular in the cosplay community.

Those who have managed to never see the 1950 movie can watch its HD remaster on streaming services Disney+ and Amazon Prime. It is also available to purchase on all digital platforms.
