In the special Sam Smith version of spectre, there's a deleted scene in
the office with C & M helping Bond to hang a picture for them. As usual
they're arguing, and an angry Bond has to shout while holding a nail.

From a leaked script for Bond 25,

"Bond having to take on Blofeld and his genetically enhanced chimps, during
the biggest earthquake in San Francisco's history. As terrorists attack London
leading to the MI6 office staff fighting on the streets, just as the Alien invasion 
begins "  ............ now that has Oscar written all over it.

More movie magic:

Did you know Sean Connery is only a mere four feet tall?  Directors would seat Sean on bar stools and film from the midriff up to acheive the illusion of height.  Special stilts were fashioned for some of his action sequences.

Denis Healey was briefly considered for the role of Q upon the death of Desmond Llewellyn when producers decided that they wanted the character to be more high-brow. Fortunately, before he was actually offered the role, EON realised that it had been a typo and that Healey was actually "more eye-brow."

An alternate ending for 'Goldfinger' involved James and Goldfinger settling their differences peacefully over a cup of tea, then moving to a small town in Kentucky where they opened a jewelry store together.  In the epilogue, it's revealed that they never made much money, but the friendship they found was priceless.  Goldfinger passed after 8 years, from to complications due to obesity.  James died within hours of Goldfinger's death.... from a broken heart.

American internet star Rebecca Black (of 'Friday' fame) was asked to record a demo theme for the movie Skyfall.  But when the car arrived to pick her up and take her to the studio, she had a difficult decision about whether she should sit in the front seat or the back seat.  The conundrum was never resolved, and producers had to work with second choice Adele.  After the producers found a suitable pickup truck, Adele was driven to the studio and the rest is history.

Re: Facts on Bond ( Might not be true )

Between DAD and CR, early ideas for a reboot was to turn Bond into a super hero, to capitalise on the success of X-Men, Spider Man and the fact Batman Begins had entered production. In the PTS of this new reboot, Bond would be caught in a gunfight with several of Blofeld's men in a factory, until Bond would be covered in a radioactive substance, giving him powers such as X-Ray vision, super strength, ability to fly, and laser eyes. The climax would see Super Bond, as he was to be called, fighting Blofeld, an Austrian cyborg (potentially played by Arnold Shwarznegger), and his robot cat.
