Though the run-up to the holiday season (especially the month leading up to Christmas) usually means a slow up on festivals -- film or otherwise -- unless seasonally related, virtual fests are everywhere, especially on television.
Now EPIX, the premium entertainment service available on TV, video-on-demand, online and on consumer electronic devices, has created its own virtual film festival for fans of exotic locations, fast cars, beautiful women, crazy gadgets and vodka martinis, shaken, not stirred…
So the channel will present a James Bond film every night at 10pm ET from December 1 - 24, 2011, concluding with an all-day marathon of Bond movies on Christmas day. What a way to take a break from the holiday rush and escape with Agent 007 in films like Goldfinger, The Spy Who Loved Me, The Living Daylights, Tomorrow Never Dies and many, many others.
That is for the love of a James Bond and the films that have drawn on his various incarnations from his earliest appearance in a 1954 BBC version to the incarnation as created by Pierce Brosnan.
EPIX is the only premium service providing its entire monthly line-up of new Hollywood hits, classic feature films, documentaries and original concerts, comedy and sporting events on all platforms.
A joint venture between Viacom's Paramount Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Lionsgate, EPIX has access to more than 15,000 motion pictures spanning the vast libraries of its partners and other studios, EPIX provides a powerful entertainment experience with more feature films on demand and online and more HD movies than any other service.
The only thing missing is a hot babe or a fast run in the Aston Martin -- or the equivalent Corgi toy replica.
