Wa petik laporan akbar hari ini…..
Today is Global James Bond Day. It marks the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 50 years since the first James Bond movie was released.
Dr No starred Sean Connery as Bond himself. Other actors included Joseph Wiseman, Ursula Andress, Jack Lord and John Kitzmiller. The movie made US$59.6mil at the box office.
The two men behind Dr No were Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman who adapted Ian Fleming’s books and brought Dr No to the screen in 1962.
This makes the 007 franchise the longest-running film in history with 23 films produced.
The latest instalment of this wildly popular spy-thriller flick, is none other than Daniel Craig’s Skyfall. Skyfall will be released in Britain on Oct 26, 2012, and in the United States on Nov 9, 2012.
To commemorate Global James Bond Day, various events are happening throughout the world. In the United States, a film retrospective will take place at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and a Music of Bond Night hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Los Angeles. In other countries, there will be special events to mark the day, too.
In Britain, for example, an auction of James Bond memorabilia is taking place at Christie’s with all proceeds going to Unicef (United Nations Children’s Fund) and some other charitable causes.
In Belgium and South Africa, some offices will celebrate with Bond-themed Casual Friday, where people will turn up to work dressed in gowns and tuxedos.
In addition, Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007, a feature documentary, will be screened in Australia, Belgium, France, Holland, India, Japan, Latvia, Mexico and Russia.
The radio stations are joining the bandwagon as well, playing Bond theme songs around the world. Skyfall releases in Malaysian cinemas Nov 1, 2012.
