EXCLUSIVE: When you consider how important gadgets are in James Bond lore, it makes sense for MGM and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment to use the 2012 International CES to announce plans to release all 22 movies in a boxed set of Blu-ray discs. This will be the first time that all of the films — from Dr. No to Quantum Of Solace – have been offered together, and that nine of the films will be available in HD. The package celebrating 007′s 50-year film career also will include 130 hours of bonus features. The set will be available this fall for about $199, but fans can pre-order on Amazon starting today. The announcement will be made at a panel about the Bond films featuring directors John Glen (For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, A View To A Kill, The Living Daylights, and Licence To Kill), Martin Campbell (GoldenEye, Casino Royale) and Michael Apted (The World Is Not Enough). Also appearing will be actresses Olga Kurylenko (Quantum Of Solace) and Caterina Murino (Casino Royale). Last year, Fox used the CES platform to announce sales of its Star Wars Saga set of Blu-ray discs.
