Celebrate 50 Years of Bond With This New Blu-ray Set September 25

I'm a huge fan of the James Bond franchise, I always have been. Going back to when I was young, my dad would show me the older Sean Connery movies, and I instantly fell in love with the suave and cool super spy who worked for M16. Over the years, I fully immersed myself into the world including the books, games, and whatever else I could get my hands on. I loved watching the different things each actor would bring to the role, because each being so different. The six actors, including Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierece Brosnan, and Daniel Craig all brought something new to the role that the previous ones hadn't. Not many movies series last as long, or as well known, as the Bond franchise, and the lasting power really shows how fun, exciting, and timeless the series really is. 

I've owned the series many times over, first on VHS, and twice over on DVD, and I have the select few that are on blu-ray. So I'm pleased to see that Fox is releasing this exciting new box set for blu-ray for Bond fans of all ages. The Bond 50 box set features all twenty two of the official James Bond films (Sorry, Connery fans, but Never Say Never Again is not included.) starting from 'Dr. No' and ending with 'Quantum of Solace'. It even includes the video blogs for this years upcoming film, 'Skyfall', which sees Daniel Craig return for the third time as Bond. I am definitely excited for this, and I can't wait to get my hands on it. It's going to be a fantastic set, and I can't wait to really dig into it's new special features. Hit the jump for the full press release and a look at the special features.
