Sky Movies 007 launches in the UK on October 5th, yet another part of the ongoing James Bond 50th Anniversary celebration, from the box set to the latest Bond flick, "Skyfall."  The Bond channel's video promo (below) is a free-wheeling supercut of Bond car chases, including each of the six Bonds: Sean Connery, Roger Moore, George Lazenby, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and the current Daniel Craig.  As the trailer puts it -- in simple shaken-not-stirred Bond style -- "All the Bonds, all in one place."  In honor of the half-century of Bonds, the channel will premiere with the first-ever Bond film, 1962's "Dr. No."
