James Bond fever has hit the Boatbookings office this week with the exciting announcement of Spectre and the even more exciting Aston Martin DB10 set to accompany Daniel Craig in the latest addition to the thrilling movies.

DB9, the stunning luxury motor yacht and the original Palmer Johnson 170 is our super yacht of the week.
Day 2 of the world famous Cannes Film Festival sees the premiere of ‘The Bling Ring,’ a highly anticipated American crime-drama film that is based on true events. The film was directed, written and produced by Sofia Coppola, who previously won an Academy Award for the Best Original Screenplay for ‘Lost in Translation’ and who became the first American woman to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Director.
The film is set around a group of celebrity obsessed teenagers who cunningly use the Internet and social media to track celebrities’ whereabouts and then steal all their personal possessions. The group called themselves the ‘Bling Ring Gang’ and stole continuously from celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Megan Fox and Orlando Bloom. The groups’ ringleader was sentenced to 180 days in jail after stealing an estimated 3 million dollars worth of designer goods and jewellery.
The film stars Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga and Leslie Mann, as well as newcomers Israel Broussard and Katie Chang. It will open the ‘Un Certain Regard‘ section of the 2013 Cannes film Festival. This section was introduced in 1978 by Gilles Jacob. Each year it presents a selection of films with varying visions and style that seek international recognition.
