Sony considers proposal to sell piece of entertainment unit of James Bond movies

22 Maj

Sony Corp.’s board is considering a proposal from a major shareholder to sell as much as 20 percent of its entertainment business, which includes the Sony movie studio, according to various reports, including BLOOMBERG.COM, THE NEW YORK TIMES and THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER.

The Columbia Pictures unit of Sony has released the last three James Bond movies from 2006 through 2012 and is contracted to distribute the next film, Bond 24, whenever it comes out.

The proposal to sell a piece of the entertainment business was made last week by investor Daniel Loeb and his Third Point LLC, which holds a 6.5 percent stake in Sony. An excerpt from the Hollywood Reporter story citing Sony Corp. CEO Kaz Hirai:

James Bond fans can smell like James Bond 007 thanks to new fragrance

31 Jul

Besides ‘license to kill’ James Bond has his disarming fragrance starting from 2012. Eon Productions, in charge of all James Bond movies and Procter & Gamble Co. are launching a new, aromatic-fougere fragrance that brings us back to the 60es. The new fragrance James Bond 007also celebrates 50 years of James Bond film franchise and announces 23rd Bond movie ”Skyfall” expected in cinemas in November 2012!

James Bond 007, masculine fragrance of the famous hero will be in sale next month, exclusively at Harrods. Its retro, aromatic-fougere composition is created of notes of fresh apples, cardamom, sandalwood, vetiver, lavender, coumarin and moss. This accentuated combination of aroma of ferns and moss gives a unique seal to the new men’s edition. James Bond 007 was created in cooperation of Eon Productions and perfumers of the house of Givaudan!

The bottle is dark green and robust, created of glass, has coarse mesh structure that resembles on car series James Bond. Silver ring-shaped stopper was inspired by a number of British spy gadgets and the engraved logo 007 is emphasized with a smooth satin ribbon that decorates the center of the bottle. The fragrance is available as 30, 50, 75 and 125ml EDT.

The fragrance does not represent any of the actors chosen for the role of the popular agent, but is constructed more like a conceptual presentation of Bond’s world. Advertising campaign was designed by Greg Williams who created the campaigns for the five previous Bond films. The campaign will announce the new movie Skyfall to all media starting this autumn

Cartamundi plays the “Bond” card again in SKYFALL 2012

Belgian playing cards manufacturer is exclusive supplier of the official Skyfall playing cards and chips!

Cartamundi, the worldwide market leader in the manufacture and sale of playing cards, will feature as the exclusive supplier of playing cards and poker chips used in the twenty third James Bond instalment SKYFALL.

In SKYFALL, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

Cartamundi has had a successful James Bond licence for 10 years and also supplied the cards and poker chips for the Bond film CASINO ROYALE. Chief Sales Coördinator, Bert Van Pelt, explains “We are proud that as a Belgian company, Cartamundi is able to contribute to the success of the world-famous Bond films. We hope the publicity generated by the new James Bond film will raise the profile of both Cartamundi, and the playing card game in general. Poker is still a hype throughout the world, so we are convinced that this trend can only be stimulated further by the new Bond film SKYFALL.

Cartamundi will launch an exclusive range of SKYFALL playing cards and poker sets onto the market in September. More information on this new range will follow shortly.

In this 50th anniversary year of the James bond movies, Cartamundi has already launched a collection of very nice anniversary card products

James Bond movies to screen at Cannes Film Festival

15 Maj

Cannes Film Festival bosses will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the James Bond franchise by screening five classic 007 movies at the event.

The suave superspy first burst onto the big screen in 1962’s Dr. No and went on to become one of the icons of modern cinema.

To celebrate the franchise’s 50th birthday this year (12), officials at this month’s (May12) French film festival will screen 007’s debut cinema outing along with its follow-up From Russia with Love, George Lazenby’s sole turn as the spy in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Sean Connery’s swansong in 1971’s Diamonds Are Forever, and current Bond star Daniel Craig’s debut in Casino Royale.

The films, which have all been digitally enhanced, will be shown free to the public at an outdoor theatre on Cannes Beach. The screenings mark the start of a year-long series of global events celebrating the franchise’s anniversary.

”The screenings in Cannes mark a year-long celebration, including a return to theatres worldwide of some of the classic Bond films,” the Daily Express quoted MGM and Sony executives as saying in a joint statement.

What Kind Of Smartphone Would James Bond Use in SKYFALL.

15 Mar

We can all agree that James Bond could not just go around with any type of cellular phone. He would need a state of the art smartphone that could handle espionage and spy work at the highest levels.
MI6 is a no nonsense type of government agency that would not settle for anything less than the best. Countless James Bond movies showing 007 driving BMW’s and Aston Martins, wearing the finest clothing, and we can not forget the best gadgets that technology has to offer.
I would think that at this point the iPhone has been knocked out of the running for the lack of video chat capabilities. You see, Mr. Bond would have to be able to video chat with M while driving and the iPhone needs WiFi for video chat. A bit inconvenient for a spy.
The smartphone that James Bond would go for is the HTC One X. The list of things that he could use in the HTC One X is long. Starting with the picture and video capabilities with SLR type action taking 20 pictures in 2 seconds, and being able to take the pictures while videoing.
Beats Audio would not only be great for him to listen to his music, but Q could adapt it a bit to be used to pick up ”bugs” while wearing his Beats headphones. Useful when he has to sweep a room for listening devices.
The HTC One X Car Dock would allow him to easily pop his HTC One X in to his spy car. With Bluetooth it would pair with his super car and he would be good to go. Navigation would help him get to his targets and then he would be able to video record in HD all the action.
The HTC One X also comes with the new HTC Sense 4.0 and Ice Cream Sandwich, which would fall in line with the latest technology.
I did think about the Samsung Galaxy S2 but went with the HTC One X because it is so much more stylish than the Galaxy S2. Plus it is so much cooler to say that your smartphone was dipped in plasma.

Omega Releases James Bond 50th Anniversary Seamaster 300M Watches

6 Feb

In order to celebrate 50 years of James Bond movie-making, the renowned Swiss watchmaker created a special redesigned version of the iconic Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond timepiece that was worn by the world’s most famous spy in Golden Eye and other adventures that followed. Produced in two sizes, James Bond 50th Anniversary Seamaster 300M watches come with several super interesting features that nicely indicate the special occasion.

Although they are released as Limited Editions, one can argue about their exclusivities, since there are even 11007 produced pieces of 41 mm model, while a smaller version with a 36.25mm case comes in the edition of 3007 pieces. Both versions have stainless steel cases which incorporate ceramic unidirectional rotating bezels, with elapsed diving-time scales in matt chromium nitride. The number “50″ comes in red to stress the anniversary year. Both timepieces are available with brushed and polished OMEGA patented screw-and-pin stainless steel bracelets.

A 007 monogram pattern on a lacquered black dials is the most controversial part of the new watch that already generates different opinions among Omega’s avid fans. This pattern is similar to the one of a 2002 Limited Edition watch, but it is much more striking now. If it had to be a pattern, I would rather like to see something like a Seamaster Aqua Terra.However, new Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond watch has some pretty cool features that can captivate you at the first glance.

First of all, there is a great screw-in case back with a gun-barrel effect that is shown in the opening sequence of James Bond movies. Another original element is a “bullet” decorated rotor that is visible through the central sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective coating inside.

Now, let us go back to the dial. While the 41mm version has the face with 11 hand-applied hour indices, the second version is distinctive by a diamond marker at the 7 o’clock position. The readability of the dial is exceptional, even in the extreme conditions, thanks to the white SuperLumiNova coating on hour markers and the green SuperLumiNova on the minute hand and the 12 o’clock bezel marker.

The Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond 50th Anniversary watch has the superb water-resistance up to 300 meter (660 feet). One of the features that provides this is a helium escape valve that allows gas to escape during decompression. Inside the case, there is an in-house Co-Axial Calibre 2507 self-winding movement, with the revolutionary escapement that provides greater stability, durability and exceptional chronometric performances that are guaranteed with the official certificate.
