With the twenty-fourth James Bond movie, Spectre, set to release on November 6, two different companies have joined forces with the team behind the most iconic spy in the world to produce three different special edition beverages to ensure that, even if you’ve never jumped from a helicopter to ski down a mountain, or taken out the most vile super villains to ever walk the earth, you too can save the world (and your tastebuds) like Bond.

Belvedere Special Edition Bottles:

2555_0-310x310007 Spectre Bottle (SRP Varies): This special edition bottle features the iconic gun barrel and 007 gun logo. It will be available around the world in 70cl, 75cl, 1L and 1.75L sizes.

007 Silver Saber Bottle (SRP $149): The Silver Saber bottles are nothing short of iconic with their metallic design and for the fact that they light up. This bottle takes the signature Silver Saber design and gives it a special 007-twist and will only be released in 1.75L bottles.

Deadpool’s variant in new ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ trailer is on all fours
Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool & Wolverine.

The entire summer movie season feels like it has been building toward a single event. Deadpool & Wolverine is headed to theaters on July 26, and promises to be a hilarious Deadpool movie and also a potential game-changer for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has now acquired 20th Century Fox's catalog of characters.

The promotion for the movie is ramping up in the days leading up to the event, and a new trailer gives us another look at what the movie has up its sleeve. The promotional materials have leaned heavily into teasing Deadpool's variants, as Deadpool and Wolverine are expected to spend some time traveling the multiverse in the new film. While there's a female variant we likely won't get to see until the movie itself, this latest trailer has revealed that one of Deadpool's variants will be a little doggy that he carries around. The new trailer also features a sneak peak at Cowboy Deadpool, although once again we don't get to see who will be playing him.
