From 007 to 355?

With No Time to Die delayed again, The 355 looks set to secure a big global audience in January. X-Men director Simon Kinberg, and star Jessica Chastain, have assembled a team of badass lady spies including Penelope Cruz, Diane Kruger and Lupita Nyong’o, to kick ass and take names. This fearsome foursome is joined by Chinese megastar Fan Bingbing to ensure global appeal. The film takes its name from Agent 355, a legendary female spy who worked with the American Patriots during the Revolutionary War.

No longer is the guide focused entirely on physical challenges like long marches and pull-ups: it now has chapters on setting goals, visualizing success, ‘spiritual readiness’ and, yes, the fine art of napping :)





Going Underground

Millions of miles of secret cables and telecommunications tunnels underneath London have recently been confirmed to exist.
