Belvedere, the world’s original luxury vodka, is delighted to collaborate with Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment to promote SPECTRE, the highly anticipated 24th instalment of the James Bond series, due for global release on November 6, 2015.

Belvedere will release two custom made and limited editions to celebrate Bond’s vodka martini ‘Shaken not Stirred’, and its partnership with the 24th Bond adventure, SPECTRE. In an unprecedented move, Belvedere has replaced the iconic Belvedere Palace with the famous MI6 headquarters. Belvedere’s signature blue palette will be switched for a distinctive green, mirroring the secret spy agency’s ink of choice, creating a truly memorable collector’s edition of 100 bottles. A 007 twist will also be applied to Belvedere’s iconic Silver Saber bottles, known for their cutting edge, metallic aesthetic and illuminating technology.

Belvedere’s SPECTRE marketing program will include a global advertising campaign and a wide range of promotion and activation rights around the film. The marketing campaign will be launched as of February 2015, with a strong focus of efforts in on-premise establishments and retail stores across multiple countries. Belvedere is the vodka of choice for tastemakers who Know the Difference, echoing the award-winning campaign promoting knowledgeable choices.

President of Belvedere Vodka, Charles Gibb states: “James Bond is recognized as the most admired and influential tastemaker in the world. We’re delighted that Belvedere will be partnering with SPECTRE, our largest global partnership to date.” 

Dwight Caines, president of Theatrical Marketing for Sony Pictures, said: “James Bond’s cool attitude and stylish sophistication have always gone hand-in-hand with his choice of vodka martini. Belvedere is a perfect match.”

Excellent choice, Mr. Bond.

Recently, two men, Marc Bührer and Shane McConnachie embarked on a journey placing themselves in the footprints of the homeless and destitute on the streets of Cape Town. An initiative in conjunction with Dare To Share, Marc and Shane spent 7 days on the streets and enlisted the support of a few friends including Nick French, Brad Bodsworth and Dene Botha to join for 24 hours, relinquishing their affluent lifestyles, cars, phones (and even extra changes of clothing) to spend a week on the streets as homeless people. The project was created to highlight the plight of the homeless in Cape Town and South Africa in a effort to create awareness and encourage aid. This is just one of many initiatives these men are involved in to encourage support and responsible giving to Cape Town’s homeless community. At a screening held at the 15 on Orange Hotel in Cape Town, Marc and Shane premiered a 12 minute film (reduced from over 45 hours of footage) titled “Walk The Walk (Life On The Streets)”, showcasing their journey. The documentary-film consists of a sequence of “diary entries” of their experience, from the positive to negative and clearly demonstrates the realities of life on the streets with conversations with the homeless individuals the men encountered. The film demonstrates their search for money for their next meal, finding a warm, safe place to sleep, a place to wash and so much more, that before this journey, they could have easily have taken for granted. It was an enlightening experience as invited guests including Dare To Share, various representatives  from organizations including prominent food retail stores and The City Of Cape Town were encouraged to assist with solutions and “giving responsibly” projects.

tinseltown tidbits: matt damon, lindsay lohan, mariah carey, nick jonas

According to a report from E! News, Lindsay Lohan is currently at a private residence with her sober coach, and plans to stay there until her European vacation where she will promote her new film “The Canyons. A letter from Cliffside Malibu Treatment Center states that Lindsay Lohan should have court-ordered therapy, in order to ensure her success with the program, “We feel that it is critical that Ms. Lohan have court ordered therapy, specifically three fifty-minute sessions a week for the next eighteen months,” the letter explains. “This should be done face to face while she is in town, and via skype or phone session is she is out of town. Our entire clinical team is in unanimous agreement that if these sessions are not required by the court and attendance not verified once a month to ensure accountability, it is a set up for almost certain failure.” In addition, LiLo‘s attorney says the actress is “doing amazing” after completing rehab.

Oscar winner Matt Damon was up for the task when asked by director Neill Blomkamp to bulk up for his role in Elysium. “[Neill] was so specific about what he wanted me to look like. He actually had a picture with my face tacked onto this guy with this body, and they literally hired me a trainer and I went to him with the picture,” Damon explained to Variety. “It was four hours a day in the gym — and I’m not 26 anymore, but I got in shape.”

Just weeks after it’s release, Mariah Carey‘s latest summer smash hit song, #Beautiful featuring Miguel has reached platinum status with 1000 000 digital downloads. In anticipation for the release of her upcoming album, tentatively titled “The Art Of Letting Go” due out soon, Carey seemed to have fun with the record, collaborating with a variety of rappers including Young Jeezy. In addition, pleasing her Spanish fans, the songstress even recorded a Spanglish version of the song, called #Hermosa. See iTunes for the available versions of “#Beautiful”.

Taking a leaf out of Justin Bieber‘s book, 20 year old Jonas Brothers singer, Nick Jonas took to Instagram to last Tuesday to post a shirtless selfie of his ripped body with a note attached, “I never do this but… Healthy living and fitness update. Post workout picture. #diabeticinshape #2.0”. In the photo the Jonas Brother, donning his Nike workout shorts, lifts his right arm above his head while staring mesmerizingly into the camera. Guess, if you’re working hard and looking good, you may as well show it off! Check out Nick’s Instagram here.
