    In the special Sam Smith version of spectre, there's a deleted scene in
    the office with C & M helping Bond to hang a picture for them. As usual
    they're arguing, and an angry Bond has to shout while holding a nail.
    " M, C, Hammer ?, it's Hammer Time ! " :)

    From a leaked script for Bond 25,

    "Bond having to take on Blofeld and his genetically enhanced chimps, during
    the biggest earthquake in San Francisco's history. As terrorists attack London
    leading to the MI6 office staff fighting on the streets, just as the Alien invasion 
    begins " ............ now that has Oscar written all over it.

    More movie magic:

    Did you know Sean Connery is only a mere four feet tall? Directors would seat Sean on bar stools and film from the midriff up to acheive the illusion of height. Special stilts were fashioned for some of his action sequences.

    All the hair used in Sean Connery's hair pieces were harvested from his chest.

    Because of the popularity of science fiction 'B' movies in the '60's, the original script for 'From Russia With Love' had James Bond battling hordes of giant grasshoppers

    Given the massive Oscar haul by Mad Max: Fury Road, EON have decided to change things a little in Bond 25 and instead focus on a villain, instead of just following Bond. The title will be:

    Mad Max: Denbigh

    Sir Sean developed his style of talking from his time as a code breaker
    at Bletchley park. The extra H he adds as in "Yesh!" , was part of the
    Shipping codes,he helped to design.

    Before coming to the attention of the Producers George Lazenby was part
    Of a contemporary rock band " The Skids pool", he played triangle and was
    Good friends with Ringo Starr, in fact his skillful playing can be heard on two
    Beatles tracks.

    Sir Roger, used to earn some extra cash while filming the Saint as a minicab driver.

    Before finding fame, Timothy Dalton, used to be the guy who polished the light bulb
    In the Bat signal, on the TV series.

    Pierce Brosnan was a champion Irish Dancer, and incorporated several high dance
    Kicks in to his fight sequences.

    Daniel Craig, used to run a burger van off the Fulham highstreet. His secret sauce
    Was a mix of ketchup and Thousand island dressing.

    Bernard Bresslaw was originally offered the part of JAWS in TSWLM, but turned the part down when he found out that Sid James was not in the film playing the part of Stromberg.

    Denis Healey was briefly considered for the role of Q upon the death of Desmond Llewellyn when producers decided that they wanted the character to be more high-brow. Fortunately, before he was actually offered the role, EON realised that it had been a typo and that Healey was actually "more eye-brow."

    In a series of remakes of classic Bonds financed by Republican nominees, Live and Let Die is to be remade with Donald Trump playing Sheriff JW Pepper, followed by Diamonds Are Forever in which he plays Willard Whyte ("Bert Saxby? Tell him - He's Fired!").

    If you look closely at the CGI tsunami wave in DAD, there is a computer generated apology from the effects department.

    An alternate ending for 'Goldfinger' involved James and Goldfinger settling their differences peacefully over a cup of tea, then moving to a small town in Kentucky where they opened a jewelry store together. In the epilogue, it's revealed that they never made much money, but the friendship they found was priceless. Goldfinger passed after 8 years, from to complications due to obesity. James died within hours of Goldfinger's death.... from a broken heart.

    American internet star Rebecca Black (of 'Friday' fame) was asked to record a demo theme for the movie Skyfall. But when the car arrived to pick her up and take her to the studio, she had a difficult decision about whether she should sit in the front seat or the back seat. The conundrum was never resolved, and producers had to work with second choice Adele. After the producers found a suitable pickup truck, Adele was driven to the studio and the rest is history.

    Between DAD and CR, early ideas for a reboot was to turn Bond into a super hero, to capitalise on the success of X-Men, Spider Man and the fact Batman Begins had entered production. In the PTS of this new reboot, Bond would be caught in a gunfight with several of Blofeld's men in a factory, until Bond would be covered in a radioactive substance, giving him powers such as X-Ray vision, super strength, ability to fly, and laser eyes. The climax would see Super Bond, as he was to be called, fighting Blofeld, an Austrian cyborg (potentially played by Arnold Shwarznegger), and his robot cat.

    The DB5 from Goldfinger was not actually a DB5. They may have used a DB5 for advertisement however in the film, the modified car was actually a late series Aston DB4.
    And after one of the (I think) 3 modified "DB5's" was sold at auction for (I think again) $5 million, it was soon stolen and to this day still has not been recovered!

    James Bond was replaced as agent 007 by M after saying in an interview with the company magazine SISyphus that he'd "...rather slash his wrists than go on another operation." His 007 designation was instead given to young agent Hom Tiddleston.

    Connery was in fact on board to return for LALD, however he was fired after his first day of shooting, because no one could take him seriously every time he said "Sholitaire".

    Whilst Blofeld appeared in drag in DAF, he nearly did before hand; the scene in OHMSS where Irma catches Bond by lying in bed was originally supposed to see Telly Savalas in wig and nightgown.

    Desmond Llewlyn was only bought back after Q's absence in LALD when he told EON "If it hadn't been for Q branch, your franchise would have been dead long ago".

    Denise Richards auditioned for the role of Elektra King. Somehow, nuclear expert was the more realistic role for her.

    As most of us know, Purvis and Wade, the writers of Bond films since TWINE, also wrote Johhny English. However, what few people know is that they wrote Johhny English and the 20th Bond film at the same time, and when EON asked for a script, they accidentally sent them the Johhny English script. EON loved it, and it became Die Another Day.
