It’s competition time again! You’re all going to love this one, as we’ve got a few copies of Casino Royale on DVD (out now!) to give away, courtesy of the nice chaps over at Sony.

Best Bond ever?

After Pierce Brosnan’s Bond movies descended into arch silliness, Casino Royale saw a new Bond in the form of Daniel Craig and a daring return to the gritty, tough style not seen since Connery’s early days. Winning over both the critics and the fans, Casino Royale has returned the franchise to its rightful place at the top of the action movie heirarchy.

The real Bond

Many of the film's incredible stunts were performed by none other than FXhomer Adam Kirley, star of er-no’s short film Project One and honoured guest at the imminent Nightcast world premiere. Adam’s since catapulted into the big leagues, with a resumé that looks like a list of Best Action Movies Ever.

The crunching collision of JCB and wall at the start of the film? That was Adam. The astonishing double-leap from the crane? That was Adam. The record-breaking Aston Martin crash? That was Adam. Check out his MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/adamstunts for some fantastic on-set pictures.

How to win!

As usual, we want you to answer a question in order to win. The question is this:

What is the name of Bond’s DIY helicopter
in You Only Live Twice?

Email your answers to COMPETITION NOW CLOSEd!

Rules and regs: It wouldn't be a proper competition without some rules! So here we go: 1. Casino Royale is a hard-hitting Bond film, so you have to be 12 or over to enter. Tell us your date of birth in your email, or else. 2. These DVDs are region 2, so make sure your DVD player can handle it. 3. Don't forget to include your home mail address, as DVDs can't be sent by email. 4. All entries must be received by 3rd April 2007.

That's an easy one if you still have that "Gadgets of Bond" book that you stole from the library when you were eight...
Then again, I may be in a minority there.

^^ I'm pretty sure you can score a region-free DVD player for cheap. Isn't that what Google is for?

I had no idea that was Mr. Kirley doing the stunts in Casino Royale. I remember when I had never heard of him when he had a Spotlight. Hehe! smile I bloody loved Casino Royale. And OBVIOUSLY the stunts are amazing! wink

VV OBVIOUSLY!

Well I knew the answer, being a big bond gadget fan. I googled it to see if it came up and it seems quite a bit harder to google than the last comps I think.
