Daniel Craig's skimpy Bond trunks to go on display

Wednesday February 29, 2012

The skimpy blue trunks worn by Daniel Craig as he emerged from the sea in Casino Royale are going on display for the first time in an exhibition to mark 50 years of Bond films.

London's Barbican Centre has been given unprecedented access to the archive of Eon Productions, which makes the 007 movies, for the exhibition which will show how "Bond leapt from the page to the screen".

It's thought that the white bikini famously worn by Swiss actress Ursula Andress – in what would become one of the most well-known scenes in cinema history – could also go on show.

Visitors will also see Hollywood actress Halle Berry's Andress-style orange bikini from Die Another Day, starring Pierce Brosnan as the suave spy.

Opening in July, the exhibition will look at the stunts, exotic locations, production design and special effects that make a Bond film and will feature unseen artwork for sets and storyboards.
