A lot of Inception reminded me of Leo playing a Bond LARP :lol:

My first Bond movie was 'For Your Eyes Only' I loved the underwater battle with the exploration suit as a kid! When I saw 'Never Sat Never Again' my father tried to explain it was just Thunderball but I didn't get it till I was older (5th or 6th grade). First one I saw in theaters was 'A View to a Kill' probably one of my favorite ones. I would rent them from the video store down the street and filled in the gaps at a young age. Discovered the books and even bought the 'Fore Your Eyes Only' Marvel mini-series from 7-11 (a convenient store in my neck of the woods not sure if they're nationwide or not).

I simply love Bond. And even though I am one of the biggest Whovians to walk this God's green Earth, I hate when Whovians infer Bond as a Time Lord :lol: I never bought the theory he's a different person and it's a title... I just hate when people can't accept the fact he's just one bad ass MoFo!

by SuperHeroHype

May 21, 2012

Following the first trailer for Skyfall earlier today, it was announced that the "Bond 50" Blu-ray set will hit stores in the UK on September 24 and in North America on September 25. Here's the press release:

All the Bonds. All the girls. All the action. All in high-definition. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment mark James Bond’s monumental golden anniversary with the release of BOND 50, the complete Bond experience showcasing all 22 classic films on Blu-ray together for the first time ever, neatly packaged into one cool, sleek collectable box-set. The collection will be available beginning September 24 in the United Kingdom and September 25 in North America with additional international markets to follow that week. BOND 50 marks the debut of nine James Bond films previously unavailable in high definition Blu-ray and comes with a dossier of more than 122 hours of bonus features.

Set for release just prior to the theatrical premiere of SKYFALL, BOND 50 will offer a look at the latest Bond film through videoblogs shot with the cast and crew. The BOND 50 collection also provides two all-new pieces that spotlight the history of 007. “The World of Bond” takes a look at the style and attitude that is signature to Bond; pulling together the cars, the women, the villains and the music that have been a staple of these films for the past 50 years. “Being Bond” profiles the six distinguished actors that have had the honor of portraying 007.

Additional bonus content in the BOND 50 collection includes cast and crew commentaries, the behind-the-scenes making of each film, in-depth interviews with every actor that played Bond, a closer look at the exotic locations as shot on-the-set, the women of Bond, the villains of Bond, Bond’s cars and gadgets, music videos and much, much more!

Special Features:

· DISC TWENTY THREE – Bonus Material

o NEW – The World of Bond – the 007 films have a look, style and attitude that is signature Bond. From the cars, to the women, to the villains and even the music, Bond films stand apart.

The World of Bond showcases the fascinating and entertaining interplay among unforgettable moments of danger, seduction, adventure and a dash of that distinguished humor that fans have cherished from the beginning up until now. To add to the experience, The World of Bond featurette will also offer a Pop-Up Trivia option to challenge even the sharpest of fans with little known facts and interesting trivia from the Bond Universe.

o NEW – Being Bond – there’s only one James Bond – but he’s proven too much for only one actor to play the role.

Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig each reflect on the impact and importance of taking on such a famous role. With this piece, gain insight into what each actor brought to the character and discover how they shaped the world’s most timeless secret agent.

Comic-Con: James Bond is Coming to San Diego

by SuperHeroHype

July 02, 2012

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of James Bond, MGM will be bringing Bond to the fans at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, according to Variety.

The booth will be promoting the 50th Anniversary Blu-ray set of all 22 James Bond films and will feature several props and a different car from the series each day. So if you're a Bond fan at Comic-Con, then this is a booth you're going to want to visit more than once.

The vehicles include the flying Parahawk from "The World Is Not Enough" and the gadget-filled Aston Martin Volante from "The Living Daylights." MGM and Fox are keeping the other cars a surprise for fans. The mine bomb from "GoldenEye," a first-edition hardback book of "Dr. No.," an ax from "A View to a Kill," a Bollinger champagne bottle from "License to Kill," a nerve gas vial from "Moonraker" and a fillet of soul menu from "Live and Let Die" will be among the props displayed.

With two of the four cars confirmed, we can only hope that the other two will be fan favorites over those already announced.

Comic-Con: An IMAX Skyfall Preview Reveals New Plot Details

by SuperHeroHype

July 12, 2012

San Diego's Reuben H. Fleet Science Center was tonight host to a special "IMAX Remix" Comic-Con press event that, following a montage of 65mm footage with a live soundtrack by DJ Glenn Morrison, previewed for the first time anywhere, a brand-new trailer for the upcoming Skyfall. The footage itself will be revealed at IMAX theaters across the country in the weeks to come, but SuperHeroHype was on hand tonight to catch a few of the new plot reveals.

At the start of the trailer, we learn that M (Dame Judi Dench) was responsible for a drive that contains the names and locations of every British Intelligence Agent stationed across the world. That drive has now gone missing.

Following the character's first image reveal yesterday, Ben Wishaw's Q is seen in action. We watch him meeting Daniel Craig's 007 for the first time where Q tells Bond that, with his expertise, he can accomplish more on his laptop in his pajamas in ten minutes than Bond can in the field in an entire year.

There's lots of action scenes, including quite a few shots of Bond fighting someone hand-to-hand on the roof of a train car. Later in the trailer, we see the same car being torn apart (while it's still moving) by a pursuing construction crane.

Of course, there a number of franchise mainstays: we see the classic 007 Walther PPK, the original Aston Martin and we get to hear Craig say, "Bond. James Bond." along with quick flashes of Naomie Harris' new Bond girl, Eve.

Coming to theaters and IMAX on November 9, the Sam Mendes-directed action adventure also stars Javier Bardem, Berenice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace and Tonia Sotiropoulou.
