No 19 of MI6 Confidential (English Bond Magazine)

Mi6 Confidential 19
Publication of MI6 Confidential, issue 19, volume 6.

MI6 Confidential, the full-colour magazine celebrating the world of James Bond 007, returns with its nineteenth issue, BILLION DOLLAR BOND.

Whilst pundits' predictions of Skyfall's success definitely rang true, the 23rd Bond adventure surely surpassed even the most optimistic auspices, both in terms of substance, and box office success. This issue celebrates that success, with a look at the global promotion and Royal World Premiere, and we turn back the clock to pre-production as screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade describe the genesis of the Skyfall screenplay in an exclusive interview.

We also chat to Gregg Wilson - associate producer and son of Michael G. Wilson - about his bond with the franchise. Finally, as Skyfall marks something of a fresh beginning for 007, the issue would not be complete without meeting the new Miss Moneypenny, Naomie Harris, and a celebration of Judi Dench's 17-year run as 'M'.

Featured in this issue:
• Bonding with Britain - Exclusive interview with screenwriters Neal Purvis & Robert Wade
• World Premiere - MI6 reports from the biggest Bond premiere yet
• Around the World with Skyfall - Following the cast & crew on their truly global junket
• All in the Family - Associate producer Gregg Wilson on his bond with the franchise
• A Close Shave - How Naomie Harris is making Miss Eve Moneypenny her own
• Swan Song - Celebrating the 17-year, 7 film legacy of Dame Judi Dench's 'M'
• James Bond Ski School - Demystifying some of the skiing jargon used by 007's creator
• The Bond Connection - Examines the life and work of spymaster-cum-novelist John le Carré

Editor's note:
FSWL got an interview with Neal Purvis & Robert Wade in September 2012, it was published on the website in early October.

Like MI6 Confidential, FSWL got an invitation to interview Gregg Wilson and Naomie Harris in conjunction with the premiere of Skyfall in Stockholm, our report will follow later.
