Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:
Today, October 5th, 2012, is the first official Global James Bond Day, which commemorates the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise. This special occasion will consist of a day-long series of events for 007 fans around the world.
The Bond franchise is the longest-running franchise in film history, with twenty-three films in the series centered around arguably the most popular secret agent of all time. The website 007.com assembled the below breakdown of the world-wide events taking place on Global James Bond Day:
Worldwide events celebrating Bond’s golden anniversary include a global online and live charity auction event organized by Christie’s in London, a global survey to discover the favourite Bond film country by country, a film retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, a Music of Bond night in Los Angeles hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and Designing 007: 50 Years of James Bond Style opens at TIFF in Toronto.
Enjoy your day, Agent 007. You deserve it. Thanks for always saving the world, delivering rough justice to the world’s supervillians, and always getting the girl.
Someone get this man a martini. You know how he likes it.
