1. Belvedere announces partnership with James Bond


    Belvedere, the world’s original luxury vodka, is delighted to collaborate with Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment to promote SPECTRE, the highly anticipated 24th installment of the James Bond series, due for global release on November 6, 2015.


    Limited Edition Belvedere Bottle 1/100

    Belvedere will release two custom made, limited edition bottles to celebrate Bond’s vodka martini ‘Shaken not Stirred’, and its partnership with the 24th Bond adventure, SPECTRE. In an unprecedented move, Belvedere has replaced the iconic Belvedere Palace with the famous MI6 headquarters. Belvedere’s signature blue palette will be switched for a distinctive green, mirroring the secret spy agency’s ink of choice, creating a truly memorable collector’s edition of 100 bottles. A 007 twist will also be applied to Belvedere’s iconic Silver Sabre bottles, known for their cutting edge, metallic aesthetic and illuminating technology.


    Belvedere’s SPECTRE marketing program will include a global advertising campaign and a wide range of promotion and activation rights around the film. The marketing campaign will be launched as of February 2015, with a strong focus of efforts in on-premise establishments and retail stores across multiple countries. Belvedere is the vodka of choice for tastemakers who Know the Difference, echoing the award-winning campaign promoting knowledgeable choices.

    President of Belvedere Vodka, Charles Gibb states: “James Bond is recognised as the most admired and influential tastemaker in the world. We’re delighted that Belvedere will be partnering with SPECTRE, our largest global partnership to date.”

    Dwight Caines, president of Theatrical Marketing for Sony Pictures, said: “James Bond’s cool attitude and stylish sophistication have always gone hand-in-hand with his choice of vodka martini. Belvedere is a perfect match.”

    Excellent choice, Mr. Bond attended the official launch party in Covent Garden, London. More to follow.

  8. Christoph Waltz signed for BOND 24 as “nemesis”?

    The “Daily Mail”´s Baz Bamigboye has apparently revealed another important cast member of BOND 24: Two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz (“Inglorious Basterds”, “Django Unchained”).  He is supposed to play a “nemesis” for Bond (hey, didn´t write John Logan a movie with that title?), and the cunning nature of that character seems to be a wonderful fit for Waltz since he has demonstrated time and again how well he can play that kind of role.

    Bamigboye´s track record is pretty good – so this rumor seems to be solid.  Which would result in another German-speaking actor becoming the opponent in a Bond film – and after Javier Bardem another Oscar winner.  Coincidence?  Nah…

  9. Léa Sedoux rumored to be female lead in BOND 24

    Bond connaisseur Baz Bamigboye broke the news in the Daily Mail that French star actrice Léa Sedoux will play opposite Daniel Craig in BOND 24.

    Sedoux has become an international star after her Cannes winner “Blue is the warmest color” and starring in Quentin Tarantino´s “Inglourious Basterds”, Brad Bird´s “Mission: Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol” and Woody Allen´s “Midnight in Paris”.  Details about her role are still under wraps – but rumor has it she is playing a femme fatale.  Hey, aren´t femmes always fatale for Bond?

  10. Anthony Horowitz to write new James Bond novel

    Anthony-HorowitzIn an interview with The Guardian earlier this year, bestselling author Anthony Horowitz stated that he’d love to write an adult James Bond novel. Looks like his wish came true, as IFP today announced him as exactly that: the author of the new adult James Bond novel. A worldwide release date has been fixed for September 8th 2015, and it’ll be based on “previously unseen material written by Ian Fleming” – an unused screen treatment for an episode of Ian Flemings planned James Bond TV series named “Murder on Wheels”.
