MI6 Confidential #10 – Always Bet On Bond

MI6 Confidential, the full-colour magazine celebrating the world of James Bond 007, returns with its tenth issue.

With the tabloid press railing against his selection and criticizing his suitability as the new James Bond on an almost daily basis, and the producers making the bold step of resetting the character back to the start of his career, the stakes could not have been higher for the release of “Casino Royale” and Daniel Craig’s debut as 007.

As well as rounding up interviews with the on-screen villains, Issue #10 of MI6 Confidential – the leading James Bond magazine – focuses on some of the aspects of the critically-acclaimed production that are often overlooked: pre-visualization, production design, scoring, special effects, costume design and the publicity machine that made sure everyone knew ‘Bond was back!’

Featured in this issue:

  • Bay Area Bonding – Tracking “A View To A Kill” around famous San Francisco landmarks
  • James Bond’s France – Searching for the real Casino Royale
  • ‘Card Sense’ Jimmy Bond – A look back at the 1954 Casino Royale live teleplay on CBS
  • That Sinking Feeling – Peter Lamont and Chris Corbould on recreating Venice
