Long-time 007 special effects man Chris Corbould took to Twitter to say he’s finished up his work on the 24th James Bond film.

Corbould isn’t a prolific Twitter user. He had put out only 36 tweets as of early Thursday afternoon. But he used his THIRD TWITTER POSTING in October to announce he’d be on the movie’s crew.

You can see an image below of Corbould’s tweet announcing wrapping up work on the film. Corbould won an Oscar for the Christopher Nolan-directed Inception and worked on Nolan’s Batman movies.

Here’s the tweet that went out this morning. The trailer will go out at 8 a.m. British Summer Time, which is 3 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time in the United States.

UPDATE: Dave Bautista, who plays henchman Mr. Hinx in SPECTRE, said via Twitter that he’s taking fan questions via the social media service. Here’s that embedded tweet:

U.N.C.L.E. movie stars to take questions via Twitter

The stars of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. will take fan questions via Twitter, it was announced on, well, Twitter.

What follows is the embedded tweet of the U.N.C.L.E. promotion. It was posted Monday evening. You can CLICK HERE to see the questions that have been written.

M:I Rogue Nation director answers Twitter questions

Christopher McQuarrie, the director of Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, answered questions on Twitter on Sunday.

The fifth Mission: Impossible film with Tom Cruise, is due out at the end of this month. McQuarrie provided updates about the movie while it was in production. So the Q&A session was a natural extension of that.

Here’s a sampling of the director’s interaction.

Question: How long did it take to film the plane sequence?

Q: What was the toughest scene to shoot?

Q: How often do you have to talk Tom Cruise out of doing insane stunts?

Q: Do you relate yourself to Ethan Hunt or any other M:I character?

Warner Bros. gives an early press screening of U.N.C.L.E.

Warner Bros. has conducted an early media showing of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie, according to the editor of an entertainment news website.

Steven Weintraub, editor in chief of Collider.com, took to Instagram and Twitter tonight to say he was attending.

“Going back to the 60s with Guy Ritchie tonight,” Weintraub wrote in a caption accompanying a photo he put on Instagram. “Seeing an early screening of THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. Wb. must think they’ve got the goods to show us the film 6 weeks early.”

The movie, starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, doesn’t arrive in theaters until Aug. 14. Warners originally scheduled the Guy Ritchie-directed film for mid-January, usually seen as a studio dumping ground for movies.

Warners later switched U.N.C.L.E. to August and kept it there, even after Paramount moved up Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation to July 31 from Dec. 25. The M:I movie features star/producer Tom Cruise, who had been courted to play Napoleon Solo in U.N.C.L.E. but opted against it. That paved the way for Cavill’s selection.

UPDATE (June 30): A writer for the Reuters news service put out a tweet after the screening. No other details provided.
