  1. More 'Ultimate James Bond 007' DVD Covers And Special Features Revealed

    Following up the revealing of seven of the new covers and special features, Amazon.co.uk has revealed new cover artwork for eight further James Bond 007 films due for ‘Ultimate’ DVD releases on 17 July: Dr. No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, You Only Live Twice, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, The Man With The Golden Gun, Moonraker, and GoldenEye. In total, 18 of the new ‘Ultimate’ 007 DVD covers have been revealed with the exception of Licence To Kill and The World Is Not Enough (the Diamonds Are Forever cover, while not yet released on Amazon, can be viewed in the promotional shot of the boxed set).

    Bond fans will want to take notice that the new GoldenEye DVD cover has an ‘Uncut’ added below the title, meaning previously unseen scenes will be present on this release.

    James Ultimate Edition DVD Case

    The covers feature the James Bond actor in the middle right panel, while often a Bond girl and/or prominent location are featured on the left. The top and bottom panels contain the title of the film in the original font as well as other scenes and characters from the respective film.

    In addition to the release of the cover artwork, amazon.co.uk has more of the special features that will feature on several of the films. This listing is an update of the original listing and now includes On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. They are:
