Sir Roger Moore made the announcement last Friday that the first copy of the Bond 50 On Blu-Ray box set would embark on a seven day tour of Great Britain from September 17th-24th to celebrate the release of all 22 Bond films on Blu-ray from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
This year marks the Golden Anniversary of James Bond on film and the seven-time Bond star unveiled the gold briefcase that will travel the length of the country in an Aston Martin DBS featured in QUANTUM OF SOLACE. Alongside Moore, it will also be carried by other 007 icons including iconic Bond girls Britt Ekland, Shirley Eaton, Tania Mallet and Eunice Gayson, classic villain Richard Kiel (Jaws) and legendary director John Glen.
From Scotland with love, the golden case will retrace the super-spy’s footsteps, with the first ever Bond girl Eunice Gayson (Sylvia Trench – DR. NO, FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE) starting the digital timer at Eilean Donan Castle in the western highlands, which doubled as the British Secret Service HQ in THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH.
It will then travel the length of the country and each location will be presented with a commemorative gold disc celebrating their part in 007’s 50-year history, with other stop-offs including Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, home of many unforgettable Bond moments, and Nene Valley Railway in Peterborough, where Bond stunt performers will run with the case along a moving train celebrating the classic Bond action scene in OCTOPUSSY, introduced by John Glen, who directed five classic Bond instalments.
After seven days of adventure, the golden case will arrive at the HMV store on Oxford Street in Central London at 10.07am on September 24th. Britt Ekland and Richard Kiel will hand-deliver it with the Aston Martin DBS stopping in front of the store, welcomed by Britain’s biggest Bond fans.
