Getting my hands on either a new Bond theme or a piece from a new James Bond soundtrack is a little like Christmas. Last week we got treated to the fabulous theme for Skyfall as sung by Adele and now we have seven minutes of the Skyfall soundtrack as composed by Thomas Newman to listen to.

Seriously, who do I need to kill to get my grubby hands on this bad boy collection of all the James Bond films on sparkling Blu-Ray? For the chance to watch all 22 Bond films (from Dr No to Quantum of Solace) with over 130 hours of bonus material, heck I’ll even work for SPECTRE! Yeah that’s right I said it, I went there.
Hmm on second thought, maybe not as they do have quite the track record in complaints to their HR department for gross misconduct by the management.
But what do you expect when your methods for disciplining your staff include, electrified chairs, a poisoned tip boot to the shin and feeding incompetent members of your staff to a hungry school of piranha fish? I mean seriously why would anyone work for SPECTRE? I mean the orange jumpsuits are snazzy I’ll give you that but come on? Sorry I digress …ahem…James Bond on Blu-Ray coming soon and yes, I still plan to kill someone for this box set. No not you. Or you. But hmm…perhaps you.
*screws silencer onto Walther PPK*
Sorry mate this isn’t personal it’s just geekdom. If someone could now make a few silencer gunshot sounds that would be great thanks. Anyway enough off my rambling check out the awesome trailer below. If that doesn’t make you want to be James Bond then nothing will.

Today during a packed Sony press conference, the title of the latest Bond film with Daniel Craig as the iconic British spy was announced. The film will be called…Skyfall. ”Skyfall” is a new story not based on work by Ian Fleming — and will reflect the past two 007 films.
Also announced were Albert Finney and Ralph Fiennes, although no idea who they’re playing yet. The new film will also star Javier Bardem playing the villain and brings back Judi Dench as M. The cast also includes Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris and Bérénice Marlohe.
So thoughts people?

So according to eonline the Bond villian for the next Bond film starring Daniel Craig has been confirmed as being Javier Bardem. There’s no real details yet on bad guy Bardem will be playing (head of Quantum maybe?) but I’m just glad we’re getting another Bond film as I really enjoyed the first two.

I was a big fan of the last two Bond films (although I liked Casino Royale more) so I’m looking forward to Daniel Craig’s next outing as everyone’s favorite spy. I wonder if this film will continue on from Quantum of Solace or if it will be a stand along film.
Let the speculation begin.
MGM and SONY PICTURES ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCE UK RELEASE DATE FOR BOND 23
LONDON, June 2, 2011 – MGM and Sony Pictures Entertainment are delighted to announce the UK release date for the eagerly anticipated 23rd James Bond adventure will be Friday, 26TH OCTOBER, 2012 opening at the Odeon Leicester Square and in cinemas across the UK and Ireland.
The film will open in the United States on November 9, 2012.
BOND 23 will see Daniel Craig continue his role as James Bond in the iconic movie franchise, with British director Sam Mendes at the helm of the as-yet untitled 23rd James Bond adventure. The film will be produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.
The last two films, Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, had record-high grosses for the Bond franchise, with Casino Royale taking in $599 million in worldwide ticket sales and Quantum of Solace generating $577 million.

The Old West.. where a lone cowboy leads an uprising against a terror from beyond our world. 1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don’t welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Ford). It’s a town that lives in fear. But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known. Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he’s been.
I am totally sold on this film! Indiana Jones and James Bond fight aliens in the old west. What could be more perfect!

But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known.
Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where heÂ¿s been, he realizes he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force. With the help of the elusive traveler Ella, he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponents – townsfolk, Dolarhyde and his boys, outlaws and Apache warriors – all in danger of annihilation. United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival.
I’ve always been a big western geek so I would have there was no doubt I would check out anything with the title Cowboys & Aliens but now that I’ve seen the trailer I know where I’ll be opening night. Also with a Cowboy’s vs Ninjas film on the way it seems there is anything that cowboys can’t take on (I’m thinking Cowboys vs Vampires and Werewolves next).
Both Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford look so bad ass in this trailer I’m surprised they didn’t take out a couple of spaceships just by giving them a dirty look.
You can check the trailer (in case this one gets taken off youtube) over at Yahoo.

Released in Nov 2010 this is the remake of the greatly loved Nintendo 64 game, this time though Daniel Craig will be portraying bond in the place of Pierce Brosnan. I cannot explain the love I have for the original game. Hours of my life were thrown away playing the multiplayer with my brother. I might actually buy a Wii just to play this game!

It seems the usual ‘Where am I going to find the money to buy all these games’ season is starting up once again.
I’m a sucker for anything that has the number 007 attached for it and these new trailers for the Bond games Goldeneye 007 and Bloodstone are no exception and I will no doubt be putting my hand in wallet for both of these.
The new trailer for GoldenEye 007 sees Producers David Wilson (EON) and Julian Widdows discussing the huge challenge of reimagining the classic game and bringing the whole project up-to-date for today’s audience. With comment from Art Director and Bond veteran Rob Cowper, the trio discuss their efforts to fully immerse the player into the world of James Bond. – Activision
I’m very interested in this new updated version of Goldeneye on the Wii and it’s shaping up well. Not sure how it will stack up to the original but if this is a successful could this open the door to future re-imagined game titles?
In an update to the Gamescom trailer for James Bond 007: Blood Stone, Bond is tasked by M to find a rogue defence force researcher in Istanbul and resolve the situation “by any means necessary.” Featuring the legendary voice talents of both Daniel Craig and Judi Dench, the trailer showcases the fast paced, explosive and edgy direction that the developers have taken with this title. – Activision
The trailer of Bloodstone looks slick with some nice use of a similar style used in the Casino Royale opening credits. I think reviews on the Quantum of Solace game were mixed but I enjoyed it so I’ll be giving Bloodstone a closer look as more news is released.
