How did Skyfall filmmakers ensure the safety of the original (and rare) 1960 Aston Martin DB 5 that appeared in the very first Bond film? Three-dimensional printing company Voxeljet created three printed replicas to keep the original one out of harm’s way.
To make the replicas as close to the original as possible, they printed plastic parts using the highly advancedVX4000 3D printer for large format printing. After printing 18 parts, they then put them together them the same way a real car would be assembled.

Sexy fluid dynamics!
Approximately five minutes from each of the 22 Eon produced James Bond films have been cut together, in order and in sequence:
beginning with the first five minutes of DR. NO (1962)
followed by minutes 5-10 of FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE (1963),
minutes 10-15 of GOLDFINGER (1964),
minutes 15-20 of THUNDERBALL (1965),
continuing on through each of the remaining 18 Bond features (accounting for variables in each title’s running time) culminating with the final
five minutes of 2008’s QUANTUM OF SOLACE.
Interesting (“interesting”) detail from the Skyfall poster.
Bond film cast lists are usually quite rigid: under the title, it goes girl/villain/second girl. This one’s got villain (Bardem), whoever it is (Fiennes), girl (Harris) and second girl (Marlohe). Except Naomie Harris is hardly in the trailer, whereas Berenice Marlohe is all over it: if Naomie is the main girl, she doesn’t change her clothes much.
And where the hell did Albert Finney come from? I knew he was in it, but he hasn’t appeared in any promotional material whatsoever.
Apologies for the over-analysis.

Funny how attitudes change. The only story chosen for a woman’s magazine from For Your Eyes Only was the tale of a self-destructing relationship. I’m sure The Hildebrand Rarity’s vengeful wife would be picked now.
