18 Maj

CANNES PLAYS HOST TO FIVE CLASSIC FILMS

 James Bond will be in the south of France from tonight. As part of the celebrations for Bond’s 50th anniversary, Cannes Classics are screening five 007 films on the beach during the Cannes Film Festival. The screenings start tonight, Thursday 17th May, with a double-bill of DR NO and CASINO ROYALE and continue on the 20th, 21st and 23rd. This is the first time the James Bond films have ever been screened during the festival. And another first, the official trailer for the 23rd adventure, SKYFALL, will be publicly screened on Monday 21st May introduced by French actress Bérénice Marlohe who plays Severine in the film. Tying the classic and the new together in the world of Bond, Bérénice Marlohe will be joined by Martine Beswick who will introduce FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE. Martine played Zora in FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE and was also Paula in THUNDERBALL.

The other films being shown as part of the Cinéma de la Plage Bond screenings are ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE and DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER. These two titles will debut in high definition Blu-ray later this year in BOND 50, a collectible box-set featuring all 22 James Bond films on Blu-ray disc.
