James Bond is known for his insane gadgets, but also for his totally unglued villains. When it comes to Rube Goldberg schemes, James Bond’s enemies reign supreme. To prove it, we’ve got a clip where Blofeld hypnotizes a woman to love chickens. It’s just one of the most insane James Bond villain plots of all time. »
After the all important tuxedo, martini and gun, if there’s one thing James Bond never travels without, it’s a good gadget. This super-cut show every gizmo that Bond has ever used.
James Bond is back! And not just on the big screen—Britain’s most famous spy has returned to comics after decades away in today’s release of James Bond #1 by Warren Ellis and Jason Masters. To mark the release of issue one, we spoke Ellis to discuss how he brought Ian Fleming’s classic hero to life.
A tuxedo, a martini, and a gun. Good looks, charm, and always so impossibly cool. That’s James Bond. Also James Bond: a dude who totally abuses his license to kill and offs a lot of people in his movies. Auralnauts did their always fun kill count and showed all the deaths that all the James Bond have caused. »
We’re just about a month away from the newest James Bond film, Spectre, and Sony figured we could use one more trailer to raise our collective excitement just a little higher. It worked. »
We’re just weeks away from the release of the latest James Bond epic Spectre, and now we know what the theme music will be. This time around the film-makers have opted to commission Sam Smith (the singer, not the beer as everyone knows that Bond drinks Martinis), and he’s come up with a track titled “Writing’s On The… »
I grew up with James Bond. That’s not a huge exaggeration. I remember proudly telling my babysitter I’d been watching the films for years. My favorite parts: the chase scenes. So when I went to London last month and discovered Bond in Motion, a museum exhibit filled with actual Bond vehicles, I drooled a bit. And then… »
There is a new trailer for SPECTRE, the upcoming Bond film, and it seems the quartermaster has been very busy arranging all sorts of vehicles for scenes from Mexico to Morocco, including planes, trains, and (mostly British) automobiles. Here is a handy breakdown with plenty of pretty pictures. »
There is a new James Bond mobile game out, called James Bond: World Of Espionage! Haven’t heard of it? Probably because it hasn’t been advertised at all. Probably because it is the most pointless, uninspired, redundant trash heap of coding to ever associate itself to a successful property in the history of the app… »
The first teaser trailer for the new James Bond movie, Spectre, raises more questions than it answers. What's the secret that James Bond won't share with anyone, because he won't trust anyone? And why is James Bond venturing into the shadowy world of secret organizations? »
I grew up watching James Bond films. My favorite part was always the same: the part where “Q” would outfit our hero with the latest in spy technology. Ralph Osterhout also grew up loving Bond — but he took it to the next level. He spent his life building real spy gadgets, for operators in the field. »
If you believe fiction, spies are everywhere. You cannot turn around without bumping into someone in a wig, armed with a gun masquerading as a tasteful pair of earrings, and carrying secret plans in microdot form. There are so many, we decided to rank them. »
Spies are everywhere in pop culture (and real life.) We're fascinated with the glamour of espionage, as well as the gritty reality of spycraft. So this week, io9 and Gizmodo decided to celebrate Spy Week, an examination of all things dark and secret. »
