Just what inspired Ian Fleming's original James Bond novels? What exactly did they do to lay the foundations for the classic Bond films of the '60s-and how did the films break with the books? How did EON Productions manage to keep audiences coming back for decades? What really changed in the reboot-and what stayed the same? How do the later Bond novels of writers like John Gardner and William Boyd fit into the bigger picture? JAMES BOND'S EVOLUTION: FROM CASINO ROYALE TO SPECTRE looks at all these questions and more in a study not just of the novels or the films but both which traces the broader Bond phenomenon from its origins in post-World War II Britain to the present. In doing so it looks not just at where it all came from, but how the Bond films and books were transformed time and again to stay popular through six tumultuous decades of political and cultural change.

Revisioning 007 is a lively collection of new essays on the reinvention of James Bond in the 2006 film Casino Royale, starring Daniel Craig in his first appearance as Agent 007. Treating Casino Royale as a case study in popular film culture and as a significant turning point in the 007 series, the book offers innovative readings of the film and its interrelations with the Bond franchise, the culture industry, and recent developments in cinema, society, and world politics. Essay topics range from the analysis of 007's masochism, voyeurism, and hyper-mobility, to the examination of the film's testicular torture scene, the links between international politics and high-stakes gambling, and the changing role of the secret agent in a post-9/11 world order.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 1,0, Universität der Künste Berlin (Institut für Gestaltung), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Typus des Geheimagenten als Filmfigur wird seit je her durch den Charakter James Bond manifestiert. Kein anderer Actionheld kann auf eine solche filmische Mythologie zurückblicken wie diese Filmfigur. Dabei folgten die Produzenten der Bond Filme stets einem Schema der Anpassung und versuchten den Charakter in den zeitgeistlichen Kontext einzubetten. Mit dem 2006 veröffentlichten Film „James Bond 007: Casino Royale“ wurde die Figur des Schriftstellers Ian Flemming an die veränderlichen gesellschaftlichen und politischen Umstände der realen Welt erneut angepasst. Als Prequel sollte diese Episode der Bond-Reihe erzählen wie Bond zu 007 wurde. Die Figur sollte den Schritt ins 21. Jahrhundert machen, mit einem Plot aus Flemmings erstem Buch, welcher die Figur eigentlich 1954 eingeführt hatte. Diese paradoxe Kombination ließ eine Neuerfindung des Helden zu und sollte dazu dienen das inzwischen ironisierte Image der Figur abzulegen und sie tiefgründiger und realitätsnaher zu gestalten. Mit dieser Hausarbeit analysiere ich in wiefern die Figur James Bond erneuert wurde und wie sich dies für den Rezipienten auswirkt. Ich werde das Figurenmodell von Jens Eder auf die Figurenmerkmale der Psychoanalyse, der Persönlichkeitsanalyse, der emotionalen Dispositionen des Rezipienten und die Erlebnisqualität durch die aufgefundenen Merkmale anwenden. Dies werde ich anhand einer Thematischen Aufteilung des Films: „James Bond 007: Casino Royale“ beschreiben. Hieraus soll sich eine Antwort auf die Frage ergeben, ob in der neuen Bond-Figur auch ein neuer Prototyp gesehen werden kann, wodurch er möglicherweise entstanden ist und welche Merkmale er aufweist.

Bevor Fleming 1964 verstarb, veröffentlichte er neben diversen anderen Büchern zwölf Romane und zwei Kurzgeschichten-Sammlungen mit dem Titelhelden James Bond und konnte noch die Premieren und den Erfolg der beiden ersten Filme geniessen, in denen Sean Connery als erste Personifikation des Kultagenten seinen ultimativen Karrieredurchbruch erlebte.

When James Chapman's rip-roaring journey through the annals of celluloid Bond first appeared in 2000, the London Evening Standard said, "Chapman demonstrates that there is more to the 007 franchise than just girls, guns and globe trotting." Stephen O'Brien, writing in SFX magazine called the book "Thoughtful, intelligent, ludicrous and a bit snobby. Bit like Bond, really." Licence to Thrill went on to establish itself as one of the best books on the subject, and one that has made readers think in new ways about 007. It follows James Bond from the 1962 Dr No, through all the subsequent films of the franchise--including Casino Royale--exploring them within the culture and politics of the times, as well as within film culture itself. For this new edition, Chapman has now brought the story right up to the present, with an updated Introduction, a new first chapter and, most importantly, full coverage of Pierce Brosnan in The World is Not Enough and Die Another Day, as well as a brand new chapter on Casino Royale and Daniel Craig's new-look Bond.
