Everyone Thinks Sam Smith's New Bond Tune is Rubbish

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… »9/26/15 10:00am9/26/15 10:00am

My Afternoon With James Bond's Amazing Spy Vehicles

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… »9/08/15 11:00pm9/08/15 11:00pm

James Bond: World of Espionage (And Apparently Terrible Mobile Games)

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… »7/19/15 9:21pm7/19/15 9:21pm

Meet the 'Real-Life Q' Who Builds Secret Spy Gadgets for a Living

James Bond's Laser-Cutting Watch Is Finally a Reality

Thanks to some clever special effects, the gadgets that Q creates for James Bond and other MI6 agents are often well ahead of their time. So much so that it's only now, more than 31 years after Never Say Never Again hit theaters, that we finally have a wristwatch with a built-in laser powerful enough to do some damage. »11/21/14 9:01am11/21/14 9:01am

James Bond and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang were created by the same person

Whimsical 1968 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is best remembered for its nutty flying car and catchy songs. One piece of chitty-chitty-memora-bang-bang-bilia (sorry) that often gets overlooked: The source material was written by Ian Fleming, who is much better known for creating the most famous fictional secret agent in… »11/11/14 6:17pm11/11/14 6:17pm
