James Bond is the longest running, and one of the most successful franchises of all time, with twenty-three films produced and the twenty-fourth about to go in production. Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli succeeded Albert R ‘Cubby’ Broccoli and have produced the past seven Bond films together, including the highly successful, Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace and Skyfall. All of the James Bond films have been made in collaboration with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios or United Artists, its predecessor.

Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond adventure, was a worldwide box office phenomenon, opening #1 in 70 territories around the world, taking in over $1.1 billion worldwide, and setting a new all-time box office mark in the UK by becoming the first film to take in over £100 million.

Albert R. Broccoli’s 007 Stage: The world famous 007 stage at Pinewood was built in 1976 for the Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me. After a search across Europe, the Bond producers failed to find a stage large enough to house the three submarines the scene required, so they decided to build a new stage and tank specifically for that film.  The 007 stage remains one of the largest sound stages in the world.
