However, you're not James Bond until you've killed thousands of people, had unprotected sex in every country of the world and had someone swing a knotted rope at your balls. Read More >>

Every Secret Agent Wannabe Needs a Quadcopter Belt of Death

You could probably argue there are worse offenders, but there's no denying that James Bond's Thunderball jetpack is definitely up there in the pantheon of ridiculous(ly awesome) 00-gadgets.

This is What Kick-Arse Spy Action Would Look Like Through Google Glass

I'm not quite sure what's happening here, just a load of people getting shot, kicked, and bludgeoned to death. Oh, and lots and lots of totally badass first-person stunts. If you kitted out James Bond or Jason Bourne with Google Glass, this is probably what it would look like. [Ilya Naishuller via Kotaku] Read More >>

These days filmmakers often turn to computer graphics for scenes of destruction that would otherwise be too expensive or dangerous to stage in real life. But Skyfall posed a different problem.

It looks like Bond might have met his match in the new Q. He might be a tad on the young side, but he's certainly no pushover -- more Desmond Llewelyn's "oh shut-up Bond" than John Cleese's crazy, all-over-the-place Q, as this brand new Skyfall clip shows. Read More >>
