Having finally settled things with Saban and re-uploaded “Power/Rangers” with more specifically negotiated legalese, Adi Shankar has dropped his new “gritty reboot”: a James Bond fan film starring an aging Sean Connery Bond in the present day. Part RED and part Hollis Mason death scene in Watchmen, it’s done in animatic storyboard form, and features Bond pining for the old days when he didn’t have to pay for sex and could kill with impunity. Decent Connery impression too.
I typed this late at night when this video went up, so I hope it still appears below!
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
