MGM and Fox have teamed up to give everyone’s favorite 007 from the ’70s one last big assignment. Sir Roger Moore has been given a special 007 briefcase loaded with the first Bond 50 Blu-ray set, and is traveling the length of the UK to celebrate the release. Each location on the tour will re-create a classic Bond chase, and help move the briefcase along to its next destination. Sounds like great fun, and fodder for Bond 55 right?
