Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment are going to release the coolest James Bond collection ever in September 2012. The collection called Bond 50 is dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the first James Bond films. It will contain 22 films on 22 discs as well as a 23rd disc filled with background material on all the films. It’s the first time all the films will be released as one set.

This kind of collection is what Blu-Ray was supposed to be about, enabling collectors, older and new easy access to a plethora of classic and recent contents from one of the most popular film franchise in history and one with the most sequels.

All the Bonds.  All the girls.  All the action.  All in high-definition.  Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment mark James Bond’s monumental golden anniversary with the release of BOND 50, the complete Bond experience showcasing all 22 classic films on Blu-ray together for the first time ever, neatly packaged into one cool, sleek collectable box-set.  The collection will be available beginning September 24 in the United Kingdom and September 25 in North America with additional international markets to follow that week.  BOND 50 marks the debut of nine James Bond films previously unavailable in high definition Blu-ray and comes with a dossier of more than 122 hours of bonus features.

Set for release just prior to the theatrical premiere of SKYFALL, BOND 50 will offer a look at the latest Bond film through videoblogs shot with the cast and crew.  The BOND 50 collection also provides two all-new pieces that spotlight the history of 007.  “The World of Bond” takes a look at the style and attitude that is signature to Bond; pulling together the cars, the women, the villains and the music that have been a staple of these films for the past 50 years.  “Being Bond” profiles the six distinguished actors that have had the honor of portraying 007.

Additional bonus content in the BOND 50 collection includes cast and crew commentaries, the behind-the-scenes making of each film, in-depth interviews with every actor that played Bond, a closer look at the exotic locations as shot on-the-set, the women of Bond, the villains of Bond, Bond’s cars and gadgets, music videos and much, much more!
