See a clip from Age of Heroes

James D'Arcy as Ian Fleming

The Film Shaft website has an “exclusive clip” from the upcoming movie Age of Heroes, the World War II story of the British 30 Commando unit, which was founded, back in the day, by our pal Ian Fleming. (James D’Arcy plays the future 007 chronicler in the film.)

Aside from the obvious interest to James Bond fans, the picture looks to be a old-school World War II adventure, harkening back to the 1960s commando actioners like Where Eagles Dare and The Guns of Navarone. Alastair McLean and Ian Fleming stories seem to go rather hand-in-hand anyhow — fans of one tend to like the other — and those movies certainly share a certain style and attitude with the Bond series.

Sadly, the film’s marketing people didn’t exactly have their thinking caps on, as the clip they supplied is a nighttime outdoor scene — not exactly prime viewing material for your computer screen. At any rate, you can see it, and read the entertainingly-written accompanying article RIGHT HERE. Tell ’em HMSS sent you!
