A 'spy-proof' internet

Genuine online security is now on the horizon, thanks to scientists led by Dr Siddarth Joshi from Bristol University's Quantum Engineering Technology (QET) Labs - something individual users and the growing list of corporates who have suffered from cyber attacks (Garmin the latest) - will be relieved to hear.




Bond is (nearly) back with a bang!

The action-packed new trailer for No Time to Die brings old characters and new together in what looks a fitting finale for Daniel Craig. Not only is Lea Seydoux's Madeline Swann back, but we have a new 00-agent in the form of Lashana Lynch's Nomi, as well as a first look at Rami Malek's Safin. Oh, and the classic DB5 features heavily!




He'll be back - again

He may be 73, but Arnold Schwarzenegger shows no sign of slowing down. The Terminator star has signed up to his first TV outing - a series designed for the big streaming networks - said to be a global spy adventure with a father (Schwarzenegger) and daughter (to be cast) at the center of the story.




Watching them, watching us...

Hacked documents have revealed that the FBI is concerned some people may be using Amazon’s Ring ‘smart’ doorbell to spy on the police. The hacked papers, known collectively as BlueLeaks, were stolen from more than 250 police websites and describe a 2017 incident where someone remotely watched live footage of police preparing to serve a search warrant.




Lock Stock and two spying barrels?

Some things just go together: Laurel and Hardy, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. And it seems that Jason Statham and Guy Ritchie are destined to stick together. The Sherlock Holmes director and ex-Commonwealth Games high diver are reuniting on the spy thriller Five Eyes. Statham will star and Ritchie will direct and produce from a screenplay written by The Gentlemen scribes Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies. We can’t wait. 





The language of spies

Here at SPYSCAPE we love great podcasts (have you listened to our True Spies series?) and here’s a corker. Susie Dent is an English lexicographer and etymologist and hosts a podcast called Something Rhymes with Purple, all about words, their origins and meaning. And this episode is all about the intricate language of the murky world of espionage.



And one more thing... We're open again - come and have fun!

New York City’s #1 Rated New Museum & Experience (according to Google and Tripadvisor) is back! SPYSCAPE HQ has reopened to a great reception and, for a limited period, general admission tickets will now include FREE admission (normally $23) to 007xSPYSCAPE, the first official 007 exhibition in NYC.
