An impressive line-up of current and classic Aston Martins gathered in the Great Court at Blenheim Palace on Sunday 8 November for the premiere of Fin's 4k film DB10: Built for Bond.
The specially-commissioned one-hour documentary tells the complete story of the DB10's creation, a model developed specifically for James Bond in Spectre. The documentary was filmed over an 18-month period, with over 120 hours of material captured in ultra-high definition 4K.
The film features interviews with the Aston Martin team responsible for creating Bond's stunning new car in just 6 months. Spectre Producer Michael G. Wilson, Director Sam Mendes and actor Daniel Craig share their thoughts on the collaboration with Aston Martin, while Special Effects Supervisor Chris Corbould, Stunt Coordinator Gary Powell and Bond's stunt driver Mark Higgins discuss their experiences with the DB10 on-set.
Guests enjoyed a reception in the opulent Great Hall, including a Q&A session with Fin Director Dan Constantinou and stunt driver Mark Higgins. The film itself was screened outside, with guests seated in individual Aston Martins, with audio broadcast to the car radios in classic drive-in movie style.
The exclusive sports car celebrates Aston Martin’s half-century association with Bond, which began in the 1964 film Goldfinger with the iconic Aston Martin DB5. Just ten examples of the DB10 were built, with all surviving the rigours of filming.
Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman said: “I’m delighted to finally share DB10: Built for Bond. Since the car was unveiled at Pinewood Studios in December 2014 we have been overwhelmed by the positive reaction from all over the world. The film highlights the skill, painstaking care and attention to detail that goes into every Aston Martin.
The film will be released to the general public very soon.
