Apparently James Bond has been to space, but not Australia

Empire magazine made a really nifty infograph highlighting all the places James Bond visited during his fun-times adventures, from Sean Connery in Dr No 50 years ago to Skyfall with Daniel Craig last year.

The colours signify each Bond actor's travels: Connery in red; Lazenby in orange; Moore in green; Dalton in teal; Brosnan in blue; and Craig in purple. Between the six Bonds, they've visited 146 places in 23 films. Maybe they can actually visit Australia in the next movie? How the hell was that even missed out?

Bond and Madonna must know something we don't.

I guess it doesn't count that George Lazenby is from Australia?....
sarahvma 8th-Jan-2013 08:20 pm (UTC)
Isn't Daniel Craig Australian as well?
tipsily_be 8th-Jan-2013 08:23 pm (UTC)
No, English

And Pierce Brosnan was Irish but they haven't been to Ireland either.
lightwillguide 8th-Jan-2013 08:00 pm (UTC)
Also not Canada or Mexico, unless I'm looking at this graph wrong...which really wouldn't be too shocking.
miriamele 8th-Jan-2013 08:03 pm (UTC)
I don't see Canada or Mexico either. Get on it Bond!
lightwillguide 8th-Jan-2013 08:07 pm (UTC)
He could go to Toronto! You know....to get all those....radical Canadian terrorists. LOL
punishermax 8th-Jan-2013 08:10 pm (UTC)
Huh...I thought he went to Mexico. Wasen't a Dalton Bond there?
beatlesluv 8th-Jan-2013 08:48 pm (UTC)
Came in to say he hasn't been to Canada or Mexico either -_-
grammaire 8th-Jan-2013 08:02 pm (UTC)
Hasn't been to Canada either. But I'm over it, since this isn't a real thing/who actually cares.

At first I thought you meant Canada isn't a real thing lol.

Enough sharks to punch down under.

..but not enough people to hunt down, probably.

Hasn't been to Ireland or Canada either. No love for the dominions, I guess.
flightbyzephyr 8th-Jan-2013 09:26 pm (UTC)
Fyi Ireland was never in the dominions since until it became a republic it was considered a part of the UK.

From the full wikipedia list of places visited it seems they choose locations on the amount of grandeur and danger. So all, for example, Canada needs to do is have it's crime rate rise by three hundred percent or have more palaces. They did film in Canada though as a stand in for Scotland it seems.

Fyi I'm Irish, I know.

He's terrified of the wildlife. Even James Bond ain't tryin to fuck with those spiders and snakes.

Eva Green was so flawless in Casino Royale.
brokenseas 8th-Jan-2013 08:14 pm (UTC)
Seriously. Also flawless: any scenes from CR filmed in Italy especially the Como ones. Let's have Bond go back there

windsong_moon 8th-Jan-2013 08:34 pm (UTC)
Easily the best Bond girl ever.
feelgooderies 8th-Jan-2013 08:57 pm (UTC)
The most gorgeous woman ever, imo
o0myyl0v30o 8th-Jan-2013 09:50 pm (UTC)
Agreed she's my fav Bond girl
vehiclesshockme 8th-Jan-2013 08:11 pm (UTC)
I thought Bond had been to Russia more.

And none for Canada, bye.
takobella 9th-Jan-2013 12:31 am (UTC)
That's cuz Canada is peaceful and perfect and we don't have terrorists for Bond to fight <3

There are cannibals on Greyhound though.
joliefoliepolie 8th-Jan-2013 08:12 pm (UTC)
Maybe citizenship requirements are just too strict for the villains to relocate to Australia?
baroness 8th-Jan-2013 08:18 pm (UTC)
But they used to send convicts to Australia, where are all the evil offspring of theirs?
winter_lace 8th-Jan-2013 09:34 pm (UTC)
Hanging out in this post?

My ancestor stole a horse. It's not like they were shipping criminal masterminds out here.
xevochic 8th-Jan-2013 10:55 pm (UTC)
They also sent them to the States. So maybe all the truly evil ones are just there. lol
blazinguns 8th-Jan-2013 08:17 pm (UTC)
None for North Europe, either.
kydeon 8th-Jan-2013 08:18 pm (UTC)
australian girls are hot, your loss <3
sarahvma 8th-Jan-2013 08:21 pm (UTC)
They really are. It's like England just shipped all its best-looking women there.
polekatz 8th-Jan-2013 08:56 pm (UTC)
umm, let's just settle down with this.
winter_lace 8th-Jan-2013 09:35 pm (UTC)
I suppose I'll take that as a compliment
go3x 9th-Jan-2013 03:28 am (UTC)
I don't know about the girls but the men sure are hot.
__papillon 8th-Jan-2013 08:19 pm (UTC)
this is kind of sad but when i watch action movies where there are huge character-caused car pile-ups in the highway or buildings collapses for the sake of plot i always worry about the people caught lol. i'm always like omg i hope no one else died!!!!!
apricotvodka 8th-Jan-2013 08:52 pm (UTC)
Jason Bourne wrecked a city on his way to confessing to a woman what he did to her parents... at the end I was like you: what about the families of the new victims?
anolinde 8th-Jan-2013 11:53 pm (UTC)
tbf he didn't exactly have a choice... he had just gotten shot and was being chased by both the Moscow police force and an assassin. =P (Assuming we're both thinking of the same scene, lol.)
