Usually I don’t cover this type of story because I’m not that type of entertainment guy or Hollywood person!!! However, the next James Bond movie which will appear on November 7th, 2008 (worldwide) enticed me. After noticing the head line, The new Bond girls, on Yahoo.com homepage, I could not stop myself from getting the answer. I clicked the link and the name Olga appears. The Ukrainian born model and actress is picked as one of the new Bond girls and will feature in the next Bond 22. Bond 22 is the working title for the next James Bond movie, a sequel to the 2006 Casino Royale (which I have not seen yet!!!). To be honest, I don’t like the style of Daniel Craig, the new Bond who replaced the James Bond that I liked, Pierce Brosnan (apart from Sean Connery and Timothy Dalton). That put off me from watching Casino Royale. However, I think, I should give Craig’s debut as James Bond in Casino Royale a try, simply because Bond 22 is the sequel for it.

Ops….let’s get back to the Bond girl story. With her appearance in Bond 22, Olga Kurylenko joins a long list of leading ladies to cast alongside the super spy including Halle Berry, Kim Basinger, Talisa Soto, Malaysia’s Datuk Michele Yeoh and most recently Eva Green in Casino Royale. In the past, being a “Bond girl” has given actresses massive exposure and launched lucrative careers.

My favourite James Bond: Sean Connery, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan

My favourite Bond movie: The Living Daylights

My favourite Bond Girl: Talisa Soto (Licence to Kill ~ 1989)

My favourite Bond Sound Track: Licence to Kill ~ 1989 – Tina Turner

My favourite Bond Gadget: Mobile phone in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) where it have various features:

  • a stun gun,
  • a fingerprint scanner/analyzer/transmitter that can also be used for opening high-tech fingerprint-identification locks
  • Antennae lock pick, which detaches from the phone and when inserted into a keyhole, hitting a key on the phone can then open the lock.
  • “Flip-open” remote control for operating his BMW 750iL (Directional steering pad, LCD monitor for the front and rear view, controls to fire rocket launcher and operate the car’s other defense mechanisms)
    • NOTE: This was a concept phone designed by Ericsson. Much of the look of this phone including the “flip-open” design was eventually (a few years) incorporated into Ericsson’s R380 “smartphone” which combined a fully functional mobile phone, PDA-like tools and WAP services.

Hmmm….What about your favourite Bond stuffs? gadgets? movie?

    British Gemma Arterton, 22, is the next Bond Girl

    Olga Kurylenko … the newest Bond girl

    err, which 1 is bond girl?? Olga has more seductive looks, so prefer her over Gemma, who looks classier

  12. Aizat says:

    Olga ? just heard her name from this post.. hehe.. know nothing about here. looking forward for the next bond movie but i just watch it and not a die hard fan of james bond 007

  13. zaki says:

    @ Am,

    Laa….ye ke….Bond yang sebelum2 tu memang tak kenal ke? tak pe….tak penting pun…

    @ Zaki Bolgjer,

    Both are the new Bond girls. In every James Bond movie, there’ll be 2 beautiful girls. It’s up to you which one you prefer, but end of the day, it’s Bond who’ll have fun with them!!!

    @ Aizat,

    You and I and those who want to see the new James Bond movie must wait another 11 months before it is released.

  14. am says:

    memang gitulah… yang casino royale tu kawan am cakap sedap…. pinjam cd dia tapi gambar tak lawa.. terus takde mood nak tengok… mungkin besok2 download jer kat tenet dapat le tengok…

  15. zaki says:

    @ Am,

    Aku baru je habis tgk Casino Royale. Hero dia takla macam Pierce Brosnan yang terlalu control hensem….juga kurang gadget…yang ada cuma dlm kereta dia je….Tapi personally, aku macam tak berapa minat la tgk casino royale nie…harapnya Bond 22 lagi best la….

    By the way, thanks for the download…
