    Our friends from the French James Bond fan club Club James Bond France inform us about one of their forthcoming events, a 25th Anniversary celebration of the 14th James Bond movie A View to A Kill. The press release came in somewhat late, as the event will already take place on 18th September 2010 at the Chateau de Chantilly (France), the very place where the movie’s villain, Max Zorin, had his headquarters. Those of you who are always prepared to travel at a spur of the moment decision can make a reservation by emailing [email protected]
