MI6 Confidential Issue #65
27th July 2022
Blurring the lines of reality in No Time To Die
By MI6 Staff
Issue #65 of the full-colour James Bond magazine MI6 Confidential is now shipping worldwide.
It was back in 1995 with Pierce Brosnan’s debut outing in GoldenEye that CGI was first used in the James Bond series for a few select shots, most notably the gunbarrel. 25 years on and almost every frame in No Time To Die was enhanced in some way by digital effects, from removing stuntman wires to adding vehicles that did not exist.
Yet we would challenge anyone to watch the film and pick out the ‘unreal’ elements in the film.
In this issue, we talk to the teams that created these digital illusions – many of which will surprise you. Who knows which direction the next Bond film will go, whenever that will be, either further into virtual worlds or back to basics?
