Watch: Awesome 50th Anniversary Tribute to James Bond Videos!
"The name's Bond, James Bond." What an incredible legacy! Time to toast a martini, shaken not stirred, to the one-and-only MI6 spy. EON Productions has declared October 5th as Global Bond Day in honor of the 50th Anniversary of one of my all-time favorite cinematic characters - Agent 007, created by Ian Fleming. In connection with it being James Bond's big day, a couple of awesome video tributes have hit the web that are perfect to watch today. One is an official Bond 50th video from EON, the other is an outstanding 12-minute tribute called We Have All The Time In The World, edited together by JoBlo's Nick Bosworth. Whether you're a mild Bond fan or lief-long die-hard like me, both videos remind us just how iconic this character is.
First up, here's the official "Celebration of Bond for his 50th Anniversary" video, from 007's YouTube:

Here's a third video from EON highlighting all the wonderful people involved in 50 years of James Bond:
Damn, I love James Bond so much. Thanks to Nick for sending us his impressive Bond tribute. 007 is such a badass, suave, cunning, snazzy, and downright likeable character. Like many of you, I grew up with James Bond, spending many nights watching many of the classics, and spending many hours in theaters during the Pierce Brosnan era (GoldenEye is an awesome movie) and for Daniel Craig's first two. There are so many unforgettable scenes, so many great villains and sexy Bond girls, so much to love in this legendary 23-film series. I'm a huge fan of Q (the original - Desmond Llewelyn) and I'm glad he shows up in this footage, too.
James Bond's Skyfall arrives in theaters (in the US) starting November 9th, directed by Sam Mendes and starring Daniel Craig as 007. Find all our Bond coverage here. Which of the films are your favorites?
