    Currently $199 for Pre-Order.

    In celebration of James Bond’s monumental golden anniversary, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment today unveiled BOND 50, a collectible box-set featuring all 22 James Bond films on Blu-ray Disc for the first time in one complete offering. The longest running film franchise of all time, the Bond 50 collection marks the debut of nine James Bond films previously unavailable in high definition Blu-ray. Fans around the world can pre-order now with participating online retailers.

    Acclaimed Bond directors John Glen (five Bond films including For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, A View to a Kill, The Living Daylights & Licence To Kill), Martin Campbell (GoldenEye, Casino Royale) and Michael Apted (The World Is Not Enough) with special guests Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) and Caterina Murino (Casino Royale) made the Blu-ray announcement today during a Directors’ Panel discussion in the Panasonic Booth at the annual Consumer Electronics Show.

    BOND 50 showcases fifty years of Bond neatly packaged into one cool, sleek collectable box-set featuring all six iconic James Bond actors. Produced using the highest possible picture quality and audio presentation, the collection includes all 22 James Bond feature films from Dr. No to Quantum of Solace and more than 130 hours of bonus features including some new and exclusive content.

    “With all 22 feature films available on Blu-ray in one collection for the first time this is a great way for fans to catch up on 007’s epic journey before Skyfall hits theaters next Fall,” said Michael Brown, Senior Vice President, MGM Home Entertainment. “Now viewers can enjoy the intense action of the innovative franchise in the most immersive home experience possible.”

    “We have a whole program of exciting activities planned for our 50th anniversary year, beginning with today’s announcement, by Fox, of the release of all 22 films on Blu-ray for the very first time,’’ added Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, with Eon Productions. “We are also delighted that Fox has unveiled a specially designed anniversary poster which we hope the fans will love as much as we do. Our website, 007.com will be regularly updated with all the latest anniversary news and events.”

    Seriously. The fuckin' original three Star Wars movie boxset on Bluray is like 100 just for three movies.

    This is a steal - if you like Bond. Which I don't.

    Actually no, I'm stupid. I just looked on Amazon and what I was looking at WAS the complete collection.

    I was confused because it was sitting right next to a bluray set of the "new" Star Wars movies.

    I want it but then I think about the 18 Bond DVDs I have and how I've only watched half of them.

    I'd definitely say Roger Moore over George Lazenby, On Her Majesty's Secret Service is my second LEAST favorite with MoonRaker taking the top spot for WORST Bond Film.

    I love how polarizing the Bond films are, particularly OHMSS. I also love that no matter how different people's opinions are, everyone puts Moonraker at or near the bottom. A View to a Kill is still the worst one for me, but Moonraker is right behind it.

    I always hated Dr No more than any of them, but as far as worst, I think I'm with you. aVtaK is below Moonraker. Jaws >>>>> May Day

    I actually think OHMSS is one of the better and more adult Bond films, it just suffered from Lazenby.

    I got it for about $50. Bond never really did anything for me. A few movies were okay, but that's about it. Arrogant, chauvinist blowhard!

    Must have been a limited special because I locked in at 99.99.

    Now I can't find that price any more.

    The Amazon price was indeed a special offer.
    Just checked my account and found this note when I
    went back to see how it was for sale now:

    Lost out as well, but funny thing is the set was still in stock. Wasn't it a gold box deal of the day as opposed to a lightning deal? I love Amazon, but if they have stock, the should have honored that price all day. And what did they replace that deal with? a Marilyn Monroe BD boxed set. So in that case to Amazon, a big....
