How well do you know your James Bond movies?

With a new Bond flick on the way there’s even talk of who the next 007 will be. What better reason for testing your knowledge of some serious Bond trivia.

THERE’S A NEW James Bond movie on the way, with Daniel Craig donning the tux for his fourth outing as the silver-tongued lothario in the upcoming Spectre.

Even more importantly, speculation is currently rife as to who the next Bond might be. It could be the first ever black Bond if Idris Elba wins out. Or – shudder – the first ever ginger 007 if Damian Lewis emerges victorious.

With all that going on, what better time than now to test just how well our readers know their James Bond movies.

That’s right – it’s the great TheJournal.ie James Bond quiz!
