James Bond & Friends – Episode 005 (Everybody Dies)

The latest episode of James Bond & Friends is now available.

What’s the deal with the ‘traditional’ Bond production press conference?

This episode of ‘James Bond & Friends’ is hosted by Paul Atkinson with guests Mark O’Connell, David Leigh, Bill Koenig and James Page.

We discuss the kind of Bond film we are hoping for from Craig and Fukunaga, and expectations of a kick-off press conference any day now. Along the way we spoil the plot to several classics, uncover ‘stealth writers’ in our midst, curse local papers’ photo editors, highlight the dangers of impersonating the PM, run into a drag-queen doorman, muse on the leaky nature of past productions, banish Tarantino from the Bondverse and stumble on a machine learning Bond film.

The recording took place on April 5th, 2019 in the USA, UK, New Zealand and Spain.

James Page and Paul Atkinson are co-founders of MI6-HQ.com and the magazine MI6 Confidential
