You Only Live Twice (Gilbert, 1967): Prince Charles Cinema, 2.45pm

The Prince Charles Cinema continues its full 007 Retrospective showing every James Bond movie over the coming months. You can see all the details of the screenings here. Yu Only Live Twice is also being screened on March 3rd and June 12th. Full details here.

Time Out review:
Agent 007 travels to Japan, where he fakes his own death, gets married (?!), and thwarts a plan by cat-loving SPECTRE mastermind Blofeld (Pleasence) to use hijacked US and Soviet space capsules to blackmail the world super-powers. 
Roald Dahl's implausible script is padded out with the usual exotic locations, stunts, and trickery. Sean Connery left the series after this one, but was lured back for Diamonds Are Forever four years later.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
