James Bonds 60th Anniversary year. What would you like to see?

in Bond Movies Posts: 12,427
Hi all, believe it or not? The idea for this thread really is in the title? :))

For me I would love to see a truck load of new documentaries to see along side the music of Bond which has already been announced? Certainly some fan events, and new inspiring merchandise? Merchandise wise for me? I would love say "Eaglemoss" to a lair line like they did the car series?

So you could have a scale models of Villain lairs, Government buildings and certain possible interior diorama's? I think that would be a unique line to possibly push? Be fun to see your wish lists!

Cheers everyone!

    Fun idea! Yes, probably some merch. I'd like to see the rerelease they had planned for the Moonraker score, among others.

    One dream bit of merch I've always wanted them to do is bring out the Octopussy Seiko watch again! :)

    It's only a digital watch, can't be too hard!

    Yes, some new models and toys would be great. Something affordable and colourful with illustrated packaging like they had back in the days of Bondmania (and piss off with all these boring black and silver luxury items that all look the same and cost hundreds of pounds).

    It seems Factory Entertainment are releasing Le Cercle casino plaques from DN, and I read elsewhere (speculation only) of the possibility of seeing something from each film.

    Some news on the upcoming game, maybe a new comic (although most of the recent efforts have been weak and seem to have difficulty nailing the look of Bond's world).

    An announcement of what we can expect from the next film or new actor in the role.

    An exhibit encompassing the films and other Bond media and history since 1962.

    Was not aware on the Factory Entertainment announcement? Be interesting to see what that might encompass?

    They have rereleased the LALD tarot cards, but at $80 that's a bit over what I'm willing to pay for some cards!

    I'm not really interested in expensive memorabilia or merchandise myself, but I would rather get
    • tons of celebratory documentaries;
    • perhaps a beautiful coffee table book? (Another one? You're probably right, we've got those rather abundantly already. But hey, 60 years would be a good excuse, no?);
    • a cinematic re-release of DN;
    • this is just a big fantasy, I know, but... all Bond scores, as complete as humanly possible (looking at you, Moonraker), in a beautiful box.

    I'm hungry. ;-)

    I'd quite like to see a new version of Bond Girls Are Forever. I know many old Bond girls have unfortunately passed away. It'd be interesting to see interviews with those still with on their thoughts now, and also they could include the Bond girls of the Craig-era. I think it would make sense given how No Time To Die was such a commitment to giving all the Bond girls significant roles.

    That would be top, or near the top of my list. But I think the best that we can hope for, is a steady flow of updates on what we can expect, throughout this year.

    In the case of TWINE, a mouse injector is now available, which makes the game playable in an emulator using mouse and keyboard. I haven't tried it myself, though.

    That would be lovely. Probably too late though, I'm still waiting to go and see Superman at the Albert Hall after it was postponed from 2020!

    A wide re-release of DN to theaters in October (timed for its’ 60th anniversary). In an ideal universe, this would be done in conjunction with a TV special.

    Limited theatrical re-releases of the remaining films in the weeks that follow. Something on the order of 1 or 2 “representative” movies per actor.
    • Goldfinger (Connery)
    • OHMSS (Lazenby)
    • The Spy Who Loved Me (Moore)
    • The Living Daylights (Dalton)
    • GoldenEye (Bronsnan)
    • Casino Royale (or Skyfall) (Craig)

    Note: Here in New York, The Museum of Modern Art did a complete retrospective of the films back in 2012. They actually cycled through all of the films twice over a three-month period.

    A Criterion 4K/Blu-ray release of DN. While I don’t think that the existing bonus features can really be improved upon, I would like to see additional audio commentaries. The issue here, is that most of the people actually involved in the production are – unfortunately – no longer with us. Perhaps an audio commentary from a film historian not related to the Bond universe could place the movie (and the series) in a larger cultural context. You could also have “drop-ins” from other film makers that have been inspired by the Bond films.

    Some type of Bond fan version of Comic-Con. Horror films, The Beatles, Star Trek, Star Wars, Superhero, and even Godzilla films all have an ongoing series of fan get-togthers to promote “the brand”, but the Bond series does not (to my knowledge). If EON wants to grow the base for these films – especially here in the US – something of this type should be attempted.

    Merchandising. Anytime I have guests over, my McFarlane Beatle “Yellow Submarine” figures always spark conversation. Something along these lines for Bond would be nice (and yes, I’m aware of the Fungo series of toys). Again, promote “the brand.” When was the last time you saw a teen-something in a Bond related t-shirt???!!!!!

    Finally, announce their plans for Bond 26. This one is kinda obvious.

    My two cents – for what its’ worth (not much I know) 😊.

    I think they're being shown on a new projector at the Prince Charles Cinema in London at the moment.

    They are! One a week until August, would like to make it down for OP as its a fav and have never seen it on the big screen.

    I think so, she's always been great in interviews and press events, so to see her interview Bond girls old and new would be fantastic.

    - A cinema re release of DN and then maybe each actor's first film, shown OUTSIDE of London.
    - Any Bond 26 news, something, anything!
    - An extensive TV docu series akin to the quality of the ' Inside' DVD episodes.
    - A brilliantly researched, bang up to date book which also charts the world that the films were made in through the years. I'm thinking a cross between ' Some Kind of Hero' and the 'Legacy' book.

    I don’t think GL and PB still like each other, unfortunately.

    As for me, the following:

    https://www.mi6-hq.com/news/more-talk-of-a-goldeneye-007-hd-remake-coming-soon-220214

    For all gaming platforms, James Bond is a universal character for everyone.

    A making of book for Dr. No, akin to Charles Helfenstein’s OHMSS & TLD.

    A true Pierce Bronsan Retrospective Book of his movies, not just fan opinions.

    Whether or not, Anthony Horowitz and Kim Sherwood are going beyond their book trilogies for more.

    That’s all I can think of for now.

    Excellent points @MaxCasino. And, yes, I've also heard that GL and PB are not the best of friends.

    You probably already have this, but in case you don't: Cinema Retro put together a DN "Making Of" publication back in 2012. I think they still have a few copies in stock.
