Tolkien Week may be over, but another cinematic anniversary is just around the corner. On October 5th, fans will celebrate James Bond Day, the official 50th anniversary of the franchise, with the date marking the world premiere of “Dr. No” in London in 1962. 007 enthusiasts have a lot to look forward to including the traveling exhibit “Designing 007 – Fifty Years of Bond Style” (it heads to Toronto at the end of October), but moreover a comprehensive documentary about the series to date.
“Everything Or Nothing: The Untold Story Of 007” will also start rolling out across the globe, and this first excerpt promises a film that will offer a unique peek at the 22 movies to date. In this clip, Pierce Brosnan reveals the nerves he had before he uttered the infamous, “Bond, James Bond” for the first time on camera. It’s a pretty nice and honest little moment in what we hope is a film that acts as more than just a massive EPK. The doc hits U.K. theaters on Bond Day, and you can check out the pretty solid poster for it below.
Meanwhile, “Skyfall” is on the way, and a new banner has been unveiled with Ben Whishaw‘s Q sporting the most
muscular and exciting dull pose on a poster that we’ve seen in recent memory. Change the background and it could be an ad for H&R Block. But the movie itself likely won’t be as dull as filing your taxes — it opens on North American shores on November 9th. [Empire/Facebook]
