So as many 007 fans will know, a new James Bond 007 has been announced. James Bond is one of the longest-running franchises in the history of cinematic pictures. The new Bond film is currently being called Bond 25, yet to have a title but this is to symbolize the 25th film to be made in the franchise. It has been confirmed recently after lots of speculation that Daniel Craig will be returning for his final mission as 007 ending his tenure on a high note.
After Spectre it left everyone wondering whether Daniel Craig would return and many thought otherwise as the spy rode off into the sunset in the final scenes of the last film. However Craig is returning which has fans buzzing. There are several cast members from Skyfall, Ralph Fiennes who took over as 'M', Naomi Harris 'Eve Moneypenny' and Ben Wishaw's 'Q' who returned for Spectre but no one is confirmed for Bond 25 as of yet, here's hoping the trio do officially sign on for the roles in the new Bond. Bond 25 will need to start filming soon, as sources say to make its release date which is November 9th 2019 providing a Christmas classic for those who want to step into the world of 007 for Daniel Craig's final hour. It is rumoured that the main villain to join the cast is Helena Bonham Carter known mostly for her roles in Harry Potter, Les Misérables, Sweeney Todd and newly played a role as Rose Weil in Ocean's 8. With her previous villain roles there is no doubt in our mind's that she won't be perfect for the role of tormenting the undercover spy.
The most noteworthy trademark from the franchise is the song that is played for the opening credits and for each film there is a different artist who lends their talent to the making of the film to ensure the start kicks off with a bang before the film proceeds. There is talk that Beyoncé is to sing the tune for Bond 25. Lets see if she can match the Oscar winning number 'Skyfall' by Adele who set the bar extremely high for Daniel Craig's era.
Maybe the reason Daniel Craig has taken on the role of 007 once again is because no one other than Danny Boyle has been confirmed to be directing the film after others were lined up for the job; but Danny's own Bond film which he had been developing separate to Neal Purvis and Robert Wade edition which surely won out. Neal Purvis and Robert Wade were originally down to write Bond 25 however with Boyle now calling the shots he has decided to bring John Hodge along with him who also wrote Trainspotting.
With the release date confirmed and Daniel Craig's return for his final high before leaving the franchise and with belief that he will most likely be killed off in his 5th film as James Bond we have a few new limited edition products to help with the wait for the film and to contain your excitement. These items are collector items which true fans will understand. We have a couple of writing instruments as well as cufflinks and cigar accessories.
Beautiful writing instruments including a rollerball and ballpoint in the 007 Guilloché collection. Each made from gold-plated metal, these Bond pen's by S.T. Dupont are heavy in weight and embrace a guilloché diagonal stripe carved around the barrel and cap. 007 is engraved into the cap of each of the writing instruments marking the famous role that Daniel Craig and many more before him have portrayed. The clip on each of the pen's is adorned with a small polished black Onyx stone complementing the aesthetic of the soft gold pen.
Each of the writing instruments come packaged inside a beautiful black lacquered wooden presentation box with a secret compartment for secret spy missions to be kept. The pen's are both limited to only 1962 pieces which is the date of the first apparition of Sean Connery as the very famous secret agent 007, James Bond.
In the collection there are two sets of cufflinks to accompany the beautiful writing instruments. Both pairs are very different to one another, they both embrace a circular shape and are both gold-plated however one has a polished black Onyx stone in the centre and the other reflects on the guilloché pattern engraved into the surface. The 007 is engraved on each of the pairs in different places also, on the back of the Onyx cufflinks and on the front of the guilloché cufflinks.
Lighter's & Cigar Accessories
In true S.T. Dupont style there are a couple of accessories for those who enjoy to have a smoke from time to time. In the collection there is a lighter as well as a cigar cutter, so depending on what you smoke there is something for both cigarettes and cigars. The lighter is gold-plated with a soft flame only suitable for cigarettes with the flame point underneath a matching gold cap. The cigar cutter is the perfect guillotine for cutting the end off of your cigars, providing a sharp cut with the 007 printed on the blade and engraved on the front of the lighter.
