Final details emerge for massive 50th anniversary James Bond movie box set

final details emerge for massive 50th anniversary james bond movie box set bond50

Despite his cocksure swagger and undeniable appeal to unrealistically attractive women, the cinematic James Bond is 50 years old. The spy first hit theaters in 1962 in the classic Dr. No, where he was portrayed by Sean Connery — a role which would propel the Scottish actor into legendary status. In the five decades since, he has been reinterpreted by five other men: Roger Moore, George Lazenby, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig, all of whom approached the role in their own unique way. Moore, for instance, was notably campy, while Craig’s version is as hard-nosed and brutish as the character has ever been.

Point being: Everyone has their own favorite Bond actor, but thanks to a new, immense box set, fans of the character can own all 22 films on Blu-ray, with a frankly insane amount of featurettes and extra content. Courtesy Bleeding Cool, the full, final list of what’s included:

SKYFALL Videoblogs – behind-the-scenes look at the making of SKYFALL from the cast and crew

Before you get too excited, we should point out that the entire set is currently going for $200 (assuming you pre-order through Amazon and Fox doesn’t opt to jack up the price immediately prior to release). While Amazon’s listing currently lacks a release date, the official press release quoted above claims that the set will be available come September 25, just in time for the October 26 debut of Skyfall (the 23rd James Bond film).

In the meantime, have a look at the official trailer for the box set, embedded below. It’s nothing all that novel if you’ve already seen the Bond canon in its entirety, but there are definitely less entertaining ways to spend the next few minutes.
