No 31 of MI6 Confidential (English Bond Magazine)

By: FSWL team
Mi6 confidential issue 31
New issue of the English fanzine MI6 Confidential, issue 31, a special dedicated to the making of the 1995 James Bond film GoldenEye (1995) co-starring Swedish Bond girl Izabella Scorupco.

"GoldenEye was a bit of a throwback to the classic Bond adventures of Sean Connery and Roger Moore. That handsome, debonair Bond with a lot of humour and one-liners. The story was fantastic but it wasn’t so fantastic that it made it ridiculous.” - Director Martin Campbell


MI6 Confidential, the full-colour magazine celebrating the world of James Bond 007, returns with its 31st issue, BOND RELOADED.

GoldenEye understandably holds an important place in the minds of Bond aficionados and was a milestone in many ways. It introduced Pierce Brosnan and Dame Judi Dench, conducted the franchise's first experiments with CGI, and as its director tells us, honoured all that had gone before by explicitly harking back to the fun and adventure of the '60s 007 outings.

Assembled in this issue you'll find a candid conversation with the film's director, key members of the second and model units, the historical origins of its title, and story behind the publicity machine for Bond 17. In 1995, after an interlude that seemed a lifetime to filmgoers, Bond was back and proving there was definitely no substitute.

Articles in this issue:
• Bond Reloaded - An exclusive interview with director Martin Campbell
• Luck and Fate - The ingredients that launched Bond into the 1990s (written by FSWL contributor Nicolás Suszczyk)
• The Legacy of GoldenEye - How Ian Fleming found his Jamaican solace
• Golden Memories - The publicity and premiere for GoldenEye (written by FSWL contributor Mark Cerulli)
