Everything Or Nothing: The Untold Story Of 007

20121007-214801.jpg

October 5 was Global James Bond day, marking the 50th anniversary of one of the most popular film franchises ever. One of the ways the occasion was celebrated was with the world premiere of Everything Or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007 on EPIX, a documentary chronicling the tumultuous history of Bond on and off the screen. It’s a well done production that had my rapt attention for the entire 98 minutes, and I highly recommend you see it. While it will more than likely be released on DVD/Blu-ray in the future, you can watch it for free by going to EPIX’s website and registering for a free trial. To give you a taste of what’s in store, below is the trailer and a couple of clips.
