Every Bond Intro and Trailer

November 14, 2006

In celebration of the release of Casino Royale this Friday, our fellow denizens of the Internet have provided both the trailers and introduction sequences of every Bond film to date. Watching them all gives you a real sense of how, no matter how much the film quality, effects or actors may have changed, one thing has remained constant: the exploitation of women as purely sexual objects. The series' consistent use of the female silhouette as a design form in the intros remains the quintessential method of reducing women to the importance of basic shapes--like sexy circles or a parallelograms.

Special kudos to the intro to The Living Daylights (above) for using the music of new wave band a-ha without implementing a rotoscoped pencil sketch of Bond.

Intros here, trailers here.
