After what seems like forever, the BRAND NEW Bond film, No Time To Die, has finally been released in UK cinemas, with Bond fans up and down the country flocking to the big screen to say farewell to Daniel Craig as 007.
The new film was always likely to be an epic release, with Cineworld confirming it’s been the highest pre-selling film since Marvel’s superhero movie “Avengers: Endgame” in 2019.
Although the film was postponed at least three times from its originally planned release date of April 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak, it’s fair to say Bond fans have been treated well after their long wait. The film’s 2 hours 43 runtime ensures it becomes the longest Bond movie ever!
Recently, Royal Mail revealed a set of 10 James Bond stamps celebrating the release of the record-breaking 25th Bond film – No Time to Die.
The stamp issue pays tribute to all 6 iconic Bonds and their contribution to the character at the heart of British identity, as well as four of Q-Branch’s most sophisticated gadgets.
Let’s take a look…
From Connery to Craig, the stamps feature all six portrayals on 007 taken from arguably their most legendary films, set against complex designs reminiscent of the opening sequence from each film in brilliant colour. The set includes:
- Daniel Craig as James Bond in Casino Royale
- Pierce Brosnan as James Bond in Goldeneye
- Timothy Dalton as James Bond in The Living Daylights
- Roger Moore as James Bond in Live and Let Die
- George Lazenby as James Bond in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service
- Sean Connery as James Bond in Goldfinger
Plus, the set pays homage to the Lotus Esprit Submarine, the Bell-Textron Jet Pack, Little Nellie and Bond’s great love; the DB5.
Uniquely and as you would expect from Q-Branch, these stamps are not all they seem… under UV light, the detailed specs of each gadget will become clear, although hidden to the naked eye.
Here’s some of the most limited ways to own them…
