“Nobody does it better…” Amazon has revealed an official trailer for a Bond Day offering coming to Prime Video in October titled The Sound of 007. Bond Day is October 5th – did everyone know this? I’m not sure why they didn’t call this The Music of 007 instead, because my first thought is this is a behind-the-scenes look at the sound design of the movies? Nope. The Sound of 007 is a feature-length doc film (88 minutes) telling the remarkable history of six decades of James Bond music, going behind the lens into one of the greatest movie franchise and the iconic 007 theme song. Mixing heartfelt interviews with incredible James Bond archive material, telling the story of the composers behind the Bond themes, as well as the iconic Bond Songs. Featuring tons of interviews, including with Hans Zimmer who gushes in this trailer about Bond’s legacy. Amazon seems to be readying a number of surprises for Bond Day, with this doc as the centerpiece.
Here’s the main official trailer (+ others) for Prime Video’s doc The Sound of 007, direct from YouTube:
