Are You Ready for Jimmy Bond Beer?

The internet is awash with people outraged by EON selling out Bond to Heineken. So much so EON is dedicating valuable time and energy to try and put down these open acts of rebellion. So far the lukewarm rebuttals have only added to the aggravation, the mainline of defense (or chief excuse) is the ballooning…

Environmental “Massacare” Committed For Skyfall in Istanbul

Ah, jeez right after we got done defending the Bond team in the last story this story comes up. Team Bond took to chain saws chopping down two old trees meeting with protest from local residents.  No obvious defence suggests itself other than pointing out 100 year old tree can mean just about anything, doesn’t…

Turkish News Paper Claims Bond Movie Set Being Used To Smuggle Arms

File this one under strange next to the tinfoil hats. Besides the idea of Ms Broccoli’s EON Productions cooperating with the CIA on anything like this being extremely unlikely bordering on insane, the activities described sound like average goings on at a movie set.

After all the trouble with a certain wildlife photographer you’d think EON would be a little more cautious in Turkey. As it turns out a group of Turkish High Schoolers easily bypassed security and got close enough to film part of the fight scene. The teens were apparently caught when one of them tried to…

Beacons location film bites dust

Continuing the Broke Bond story, er, I mean the Budget Cut story from last week this item from the BBC seems to add credence to the earlier story. It appears Team EON once again were flirting with local leaders to get favors and permission granted only to walk away at the last moment. This has happening often enough in Spyfall to raise more than few questions about the production.     A movie production firm has pulled out…
