The Englishman, having held a leading role in seven iconic James Bond films through the seventies and eighties after Sean Connery’s formative stint, devoted much of his time to Unicef as a goodwill ambassador in his twilight years.He broke into the industry after starring roles in TV dramas the Saint and The Persuaders.The family of the star confirmed a "short but brave battle" with cancer was Moore’s undoing.And while many outlets will be looking at Moore's life and how he injected humour into the 007 franchise, now is as good a time as any to look back at how he lent his charisma to the world of advertising, some predictably tied in with Bond’s own tastes, others are less obvious.Back in 2009 when this ad came out, The Guardian famously wrote that the ad, created by Mother, was "desperately, heartwrenchingly sad" and gave people in Team Connery the higher ground.In 1988, non-smoker Moore starred in an extravagant two minute Japanese cigarette ad, shot in Venice.

p Alien: Covenant is a decent film about android consciousness and ancient secrets wherein Michael Fassbender proves he can play an excellent android.But it has one big problem: In order to earn the “Alien” name, director Ridley Scott was forced to rehash a lot of moments from his 1979 sci-fi classic.Not even Scott, who seems much more interested in making connections to his 2012 prequel Prometheus than in filming another slobbering xenomorph.Plus a reworking of the classic Mummy franchise, an adaptation of the TV show Baywatch, and a long-awaited Wonder Woman film.Even documentaries are getting follow-ups now.After last summer’s especially weak Independence Day, Ghostbusters, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles results, it’s easy to imagine this year’s reboot glut being as exhausting as the last.
