Bollinger for James Bond, Skyfall

29 Okt

Bollinger Reveal 002 for 007 James Bond Special Edition Champagne-

To celebrate 50 years of James Bond and to take a piece of the move endorsement action, Bollinger champagne has created new limited edition packaging for its La Grande Année 2002 champagne.

This is the second time Bollinger has released limited edition packaging following the release of a James Bond film and after the success of the bullet-shaped James Bond bottle – developed for the Quantum of Solace – it was deemed Skyfall was also deserving of such an accolade.

Packaged to reflect elements of James Bond’s handgun, the cover of the Bollinger James Bond 002 for 007 is silencer shaped with two easy-grip sections and ‘James Bond’ print running vertically down the box. On the bottle label, the James Bond theme continues – with the 007 logo clearly prominent.

The new packaging is expected to be a big hit in the Asian market and with an RRP of a quite reasonable £125 – 150 the limited edition 30,000 worldwide supply of James Bond Bollinger is sure to be snapped up.

Although Bond is famed for his love of Vodka Martini cocktails, Bond also has a long association with Bollinger Champagne dating back to the 1956 film Diamonds are Forever. Bollinger has also appeared in classics such as Live and Let Die and Moonraker.

UK customers can get hold of a bottle of special edition James Bond Bollinger 002 for 007 at Harrods from 23rd September, with a worldwide release due on the 1st October. The new Skyfall movie is due to be in UK cinemas on the 26th October.

Adele’s Skyfall Theme Song James Bond movie Skyfall .

Adele’s Skyfall Theme Song James Bond movie Skyfall .
This 90-second teaser.

Adele’s smooth vocals definitely give such an anticipated song justice, and now all we can do is wait until Oct. 4 to hear the rest (the whole song is close to five minutes long).

”I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for Skyfall,” Adele said in a press release. ”There’s a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song. But I fell in love with the script and Paul [Epworth] had some great ideas for the track and it ended up being a bit of a no-brainer to do it in the end. It was also a lot of fun writing to a brief, something I’ve never done, which made it exciting.”

It is now official, Adele has definitely been chosen to sing the theme song for
the next James Bond movie, Skyfall. After much speculation, especially
during the last week, Adele is the chosen one to sing for the original
soundtrack of a 007 movie. Apparently, the song she will perform will
also be titled ”Skyfall” a track with ”an actual song with a melody and a
hook
”, and it will be the first single released by Adele since her hugely
successful latest album 21.

Monty Norman – The first man of James Bond music James Bond Theme.

16 Aug

Monty Norman – The first man of James Bond music James Bond Theme

Monty Norman Composer for Dr No.

Born April 4, 1928, London.

Monty Norman – The first man of James Bond music,best known for being credited with composing the ”James       Bond Theme”.
     
Norman is famous for writing the music to the first James Bond movie Dr No, and has been credited with writing the ”James Bond       Theme”, the signature theme of the James Bond franchise. Norman has       received royalties since 1962 for the theme, but it was arranged by       John Barry  after the producers were dissatisfied with       Norman’s music. Barry claims that he actually did write the theme, but       nevertheless, Mr. Norman won two libel       actions against publishers for claiming that Barry was the composer, most       recently against The       Sunday Times in 2001. During the trial, Barry testified on the       stand that he had, in fact, composed the The James Bond Theme, but       that Norman was contractually obligated to receive credit for the score.
     
Monty Norman composed some of the most memorable music ever for films       and stage. His contribution to the James Bond canon, though , has always       been filled with its own intrigue.
     
Norman sang with a British dance bands in the late 1940s, and moving       later into song writing. Norman worked on a number of musicals. His       modern, sometimes experimental sound impressed DR NO producers Broccoli       and Salzman who hired him to put together a score for the film.      
     
Location manager, Chris Blackwell (later of Island Records       fame) found Monty a shady room away from the hot sun where he could       happily set to music all he had absorbed of the local atmosphere.
     
The director, Terence Young, asked Monty to come up with       something for the three blind beggars who would be the first killers in a       Bond film. He wrote a calypso based on the children’s nursery rhyme, ‘Three       Blind Mice‘, called ‘The Kingston Calypso‘ which got the film       off to a good start by playing against the drama of the assassination.
     
Cubby Broccoli then wanted a song for Ursula Andress to       sing as she came out of the ocean like a beautiful bikinied mermaid. He       wanted her to be observed by Sean Connery, who would sing it back at her.       Monty asked around his new found Jamaican friends (among them Carmen       Manley, the Prime Minister’s daughter) for the correct indigenous flora,       fauna, greengrocery and patois love words to put in the lyric. The result       was a very authentic sounding number called ‘Underneath The Mango Tree‘.
     
 
     
Underneath The Mango Tree       Me honey and me, come watch for de moon.       Underneath The Mango Tree       Me honey and me make boo-loo-loops soon.      
     
Monty had great fun teaching Sean Connery and Ursula       Andress the song which played no small part in one of cinema history’s       classic moments.
     
The latest dance craze in Jamaica was called the Jump Up.       So for a scene set in the dance hall Monty wrote a number in that rhythm       called ‘Jump Up Jamaica‘, which became a local hit.
     
At a Count Basie concert in Jamaica, Monty met the great       man himself. Basie asked him to send any numbers from DR NO that might be       possible for his orchestra.
     
The outcome: Basie subsequently recorded four numbers: Dr       No’s Fantasy, The Kingston Calypso, Underneath The Mango       Tree and The James Bond Theme.
     
And finally, on Saltzman’s request, a meeting with the ‘Executive Suits’       at United Artists to give them an update on how things were progressing in       Jamaica. It was obvious that for them the jury was out on DR NO until they       could see a final cut of this, in Hollywood terms, low budget British spy       film. Then to the party, given by Arthur Laurents the book writer of many       Broadway hits including West Side Story. Half the writing talent of      
Broadway and Hollywood were on the guest list.

Coca Cola Zero partners James Bond for Skyfall.

Daniel Craig as James Bond with Coca Cola zero zero 7, here in Quantum Of Solace 2008

Coca-Cola has created a new execution for ‘Skyfall’ movie to differentiate it from the Zero Zero 7 campaign it ran for the ‘Quantum of Solace’ movie in 2008.

The 2008 campaign stirred controversy when White Stripes frontman Jack White released a statement about his disappointment that an instrumental version of the James Bond theme tune he wrote for the film, was first heard in the Coke Zero ad.

It is understood the upcoming Coke Zero campaign will launch in September, ahead of the 26 October release date for ‘Skyfall’ and will involve digital and online activity akin to the 2008 campaign.

A Coca-Cola spokesperson said: ”Whilst Coca-Cola Zero had a successful partnership with Quantum of Solace in 2008, we are yet to confirm any partnership or supporting marketing campaign associated with the next James Bond movie, Skyfall”

The news of the Coke Zero campaign comes as brands become increasingly more inventive with their tie-ups with blockbuster movies.
