MI6 Confidential Issue #51
29th July 2019
Issue #51 of the James Bond magazine MI6 Confidential explores 007 in Jamaica and the start of Bond 25
By MI6 Staff
Issue #51 of the full-colour James Bond magazine MI6 Confidential is now shipping worldwide.
Bond 25 kicked off principal photography with a meet-the-cast style simulcast from the place where 007 was born: Fleming’s Goldeneye estate. The road to production for Bond 25 was rocky to say the least, but a strong, young cast and some beautiful backdrops – including Matera (Italy), Nittedal (Norway), & the northern coast of Jamaica – promise a diverse and colourful fifth adventure for Daniel Craig.
A Royal visit to Pinewood Studios gave the production a much-needed media boost in June.
This issue we celebrate Bond’s Jamaican roots, with a look at Fleming’s relationship with the island nation and the past occasions that Jamaica hosted filming for EON. We also meet the props masters painstakingly making SPECTRE replicas.
