MI6 Confidential #31 – Bond Reloaded


GoldenEye understandably holds an important place in the minds of Bond aficionados and was a milestone in many ways.

It introduced Pierce Brosnan and Dame Judi Dench, conducted the franchise’s first experiments with CGI, and as its director tells us, honoured all that had gone before by explicitly harking back to the fun and adventure of the ’60s 007 outings.


Assembled in this issue you’ll find a candid conversation with the film’s director, key members of the second and model units, the historical origins of its title, and story behind the publicity machine for Bond 17. In 1995, after an interlude that seemed a lifetime to filmgoers, Bond was back and proving there was definitely no substitute.
