General | Latest Info

The James Bond franchise has captivated audiences for nearly six decades, producing 24 films since 1962s Dr. No. Base on books by Ian Fleming, MI6 Agent was inspired by Flemings Time in the British Naval Intelligence Division while serving in World War II. There are 40 officially licensed Bond books written by six different authors, but Flemings ' original 14 books found an entire Spy-fill universe that has stood the test of Time. The order of 007 films does not follow the correct order of Flemings novels. Casino Royale was written by Fleming in 1953, followed by Live and Let Die and Moonraker. Dr. No was first in line to actually be film, however, due in large part to budgeting reasons. Hollywood executives saw character as too British and scandalous, so money do not come easy. Plus, Fleming had sold the movie rights Of Casino Royale to producer Gregory Ratoff in 1955. Eon Productions, run by Albert Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman, purchased rights to the entire James Bond story From Fleming in 1961, and with Casino Royale not included in that sale, two had to settle for Dr. No. Dr. No was not origin story, but was the perfect film to kick off the franchise by establishing two very key Bond tropes: stunning and beautiful Bond Girl, and a villain with a strange name. Two Bond films are considered non-Eon films, having been produced by studios other than Eon. Casino Royale was first in 1967, starring David Niven in what was considered the ultimate Spy spoof produced by Columbia Pictures. Second was Never Say Never Again in 1983 in Battle Of Bonds. Broccoli and Saltzman wanted Thunderball to be the first Bond film, but due to a legal dispute between Fleming and producer Kevin McClory, that film was not an option to start a franchise. McClory was awarded screenplays he and Fleming co-write because of a plagiarism suit filed against Fleming. McClory assembled a team to produce a new script based on Thunderball and convinced Sean Connery to reprise the role and compete against Roger Moore, Broccoli, and Octopussy. As a film released by someone other than Eon Productions, Never Say Never Again isn't Bond film in the conventional sense. Heres list of every James Bond film so far, including this year's No Time To Die, in chronological order: Dr.

The Sean Connery Era

This is where it gets really complicated and confusing, because there is no definitive Bond timeline as there is for sagas like Star Wars-indeed, some elements of 007s long screen life are actually contradictory. Bond usually exist in a Simpsons-like state of suspended animation, where man stays more or less the same age while the world evolves around him. One long-standing fan theory attempts to explain this-And Secret agents ' ever-changing appearance-with idea that Jam Bond is not actually one man, but alias For succession Of spies with a 007 codename. We think that unlikely, however, because various elements of Bonds ' personal history continue between agents-And Skyfall quite explicitly shows us the Bond family home. It is probably better to look at the Bond series as two distinct continuities. The original saga begins with Dr No, and runs all the way through To Die Another Day, released 40 years later. Although it is never explicitly state, you can comfortably assume that these films run in sequence. In fact, there are several key continuity elements that appear to confirm this. The most compelling piece of evidence is the fact that in several movies released after Her Majestys Secret Service, Bond refers to the fact he was married once-his wedding turned into wake when Bonds ' wife was assassinated by Blofeld in that film. This is most explicit in For Your Eyes Only, where we see 007 visiting his late wife, Tracys Grave, before going on a revenge mission against Blofeld. Blofeld never appeared again in the original continuity, so it is safe to deduce that being dropped into chimney did actually killed him. We also know that Man with the Golden Gun takes place after Live and Let Die because 007 meets Sheriff JW Pepper for second time. The same reasoning can be applied to super-size henchman Jaws in Spy Who Love Me and Moonraker. The second continuity begins with the origin story Casino Royale, and runs all the way to 2021s No Time To Die. This is the beginning of James Bonds '00s story-base on Ian Flemings ' first Bond novel-as we see him qualifying as a government assassin and embarking on his first mission. The movies that follow have all been part of the same chronology, much more serialized than we ever saw in the original Bond run-particularly with evil organizations Quantum and SPECTRE providing throughline between each movie. Whether the events of five Daniel Craig films took place before Dr No is open to debate. On yes side, we do see Bonds ' first encounter with Ernst Stavro Blofeld in SPECTRE-And its there bad guy who gets his famous scars. On the against side, in No Time To Die, Craig will be nearly 20 years older than Sean Connery was in Dr No, while the fact Bond took his classic Aston Martin DB5 out of storage in Skyfall suggests that Goldfinger is in his past.

Late one night, British Agent James Bond 007 sneaks through hedgemaze, stalked by Red Grant, SPECTRE assassin. Grant eventually jumped on him and garrote him to death with a wire conceal in his watch. As the garden lights up, it is revealed that this Bond is actually a man wearing a prosthetic mask-it was all SPECTRE training exercise. SPECTRE's expert planner, Kronsteen, has devised a plot to steal the LEKTOR cryptographic device from the Soviets and sell it back to them while exacting revenge on Bond for killing their Agent Dr. No. SPECTRE Number 1 puts ex-SMERSH operative and Number 3 Rosa Klebb in charge of the mission. Klebb recruits Grant as an assassin, and Tatiana Romanova, cipher clerk at the Soviet consulate in Istanbul, as an unwitting pawn, as Romanova thinks Klebb is still working for SMERSH. In London, M tells Bond that Romanova has contacted their station 'T in Turkey, offering to defect with LEKTOR, which MI6 and CIA have been after for years-but Romanova says she will only defect to Bond, whose photo she has allegedly found in a Soviet intelligence file. Bond then flew to Istanbul, where he met the station head, Ali Kerim Bey. 007 is followed from the airport by an unkempt man in glasses and by Red Grant. The next day, after Kerim Bey's office is bomb, Bond and Kerim Bey Spy on Soviet consulate, where Kerim Bey sees rival Agent Krilencu.

On the following night, Kerim Bey kills Krilencu with Bond's sniper rifle. When Bond returns to his hotel suite, he finds Romanova in bed waiting for him, two have sex, unaware that they are being filmed by SPECTRE, in hope of humiliating MI6 with a sex scandal before selling decoder back to Moscow. The next day, Romanova heads off for a pre-arrange rendezvous at Hagia Sophia. A Bespectacled man who follows Bond to the airport tries to intercept Romanova's floor plan of the Soviet consulate, but is Kill by Grant. Upon finding the body, Bond takes floor plan, and brings it to Kerim Bey to devise their invasion. At the consulate, Kerim Bey sets off a smoke bomb to distract Soviet personnel while Bond and Romanova steal LEKTOR and escape through ancient water tunnels under the city. After stealing LEKTOR, Bond, Romanova, and Kerim Bey escaped with the device on the Orient Express. On train, Kerim Bey and a Soviet security officer named Benz are Kill by Grant, who makes it appear as if they Kill each other. In Zagreb, Grant boards a train and meets Bond pretending to be Agent Nash From station 'Y, ' whom he Kill moments before meeting Bond. He drugs Romanova at dinner, then overcomes Bond.


Production Crew

Following the financial success of Dr. No, United Artists greenlighted second James Bond film. The studio doubled the budget offer to Eon Productions to 2 million, and also approved a bonus for Sean Connery, who would receive 100 000 along with his 54 000 salary. As President John F. Kennedy had named Fleming's novel From Russia with Love among his ten favourite books of all time in Life magazine, producers Broccoli and Saltzman chose this as a follow-up to Bond's cinematic debut in Dr. No. From Russia with Love was the last film President Kennedy saw at the White House on 20 November 1963 before going to Dallas. Most of the crew from the first film return, with major exceptions being production designer Ken Adam-Who went to work on Dr. Strangelove and was replaced by Dr. No' s Art Director Syd Cain, title Designer Maurice Binder was replaced by Robert Brownjohn and stunt coordinator Bob Simmons was unavailable and was replace by Peter Perkins though Simmons perform stunts in film. John Barry replaced Monty Norman as composer of the soundtrack. The film introduces several conventions which would become essential elements of the franchise: pre-title sequence, Blofeld character, secret weapon gadget for Bond, helicopter sequence, postscript action scene after main climax, Theme song with lyrics, and line jam Bond will return / be back in credits.

The George Lazenby Era

That is an interesting question as the answer isnt quite straightforward. At time of this update, in April 2018, there are 24 Bond movies in a series produced by Eon Productions. But there was also the 1954 television adaptation of Casino Royale, 1967 spoof version of the same book, and a 1983 remake of Thunderball with Sean Connery, titled Never Say Never Again. You can read about these three productions here. Many fans refer to the Eon series as official movies, although really it is incorrect to think other films are unofficial. Producers of those films own rights to make them.


The James Bond movies in order

In many ways, the quintessential James Bond movie, in introducing the gadget-packed Aston Martin DB5, Goldfinger begins to shift the series away from Ian Flemings ' vision of James Bond. It also turns generations of boys that follow into avid collectors. The film improves on the book substantially by making small but important changes to the villains ' scheme. It also features one of most memorable Bond girls in the shape of Pussy Galore and a pre-title sequence to which few of the films that follow have even come close to equalling. Whether or not Goldfinger is the best film in the series is a moot point. Without doubt though, it is the most iconic Bond film.

The Roger Moore Era

In 1961, Albert R Cubby Broccoli found that Harry Saltzman had a six-month option to film James Bond novels and tried to buy him out. But when Saltzman refuse they team up instead and create Eon Productions to put 007 on the big Screen. Dr No remains a fairly faithful adaptation of the novel, but the screenwriters add a number of scenes. They also add Felix Leiter, who does not appear in the book. But while many of the classic Bond elements were introduce, first Bond film lacked John Barry's score. Apart from James Bond's theme music is largely unmemorable. When Dr No proved to be a hit, Eon Productions quickly followed it up With From Russia With Love, considered by Fleming to be his best work. However, rather than a Cold War plot pitting Russians and SMERSH against 007, the screenplay features SPECTRE playing Russians against MI6 in order to assassinate 007 and get hold of the Lektor code machine. The second Bond film makes great use of location work in Istanbul, as well as scenes on board the Orient Express as Bond, Tania and Kerim flee With Lektor. Bonds ' claustrophobic fight with Red Grant, highlighted by Peter Hunts ' groundbreaking editing, has rarely been equal in the series. In many ways, the quintessential James Bond movie, in introducing the gadget-packed Aston Martin DB5, Goldfinger begins to shift the series away from Ian Flemings ' vision of James Bond. It also turns generations of boys that follow into avid collectors. The film improves on the book substantially by making small but important changes to the villains ' scheme. It also features one of most memorable Bond girls in the shape of Pussy Galore and a pre-title sequence to which few Of films that follow have even come close to equalling. Whether or not Goldfinger is the best film in the series is a moot point. Without doubt though, it is the most iconic Bond film. Where Goldfinger goes bigger Thunderball goes bigger. Back comes DB5 For pre-title sequence as well as Bell-Textron jet pack in this story of SPECTRE holding West to ransom after hijacking a Vulcan bomber loaded with two atomic bombs; Again, the series taps into the threat of vaporisation by nuclear weapons. Film is largely in the Bahamas, underwater scenes are sometimes criticise for slowing the film down and making it difficult to follow, but it has a great John Barry score and Sean Connery is in fine form as 007. After the success of Thunderball, Eon radically shifted the series in a new direction With You Only Live Twice, dropping Ian Flemings ' story completely and retaining Japanese locations and character names. Instead, producers brought in Roald Dahl to write the screenplay. The film sees SPECTRE meddling in a space race between the United States and USSR going on at time.

The Timothy Dalton Era

Timothy Dalton had been approached to play Bond several times before finally signing a three-film contract on 30 July 1986 following Roger Moore's retirement from the role. Dalton takes Bond's character away from the light-hearted playboy of Moore, harking back to the gritty realism of Ian Fleming's novels instead of fantasy plots and humour. Dalton state in 1989 interview: Dalton approached role closer to the original character described by Ian Fleming and was often seen reading books on set. His 007 was a more reluctant and questioning hero who did not always enjoy the assignments he was give, something only seen on screen before, albeit obliquely, in George Lazenby's on Her Majesty's Secret Service. In Living Daylights, for example, Bond tells critical colleague, stuff my orders!. Tell M what you want. If he fires me, I'll thank him for it. In Licence to Kill, he resigns from the Secret Service in order to pursue his own agenda of revenge. Steven Jay Rubin writes in Complete James Bond Movie Encyclopaedia: Dalton was contracted for three Bond films, and pre-production of his third film, produced under the working title Bond 17, began in 1990, with a project release date in 1991. Early screenplays reveal story which would deal with the destruction of a chemical weapons laboratory in Scotland, robotics, and events which would take place in London, Tokyo, and Hong Kong. However, film was canceled due to legal issues between UA / MGM and EON Productions. Upon legalities ending in 1993, Dalton was expected to return as Bond for the next Bond film, which later became GoldenEye. Despite his contract having expire, negotiations with him to renew it take place. In an interview with the Daily Mail in August 1993, Dalton indicated that Michael France was writing the screenplay for the new film, and production was to begin in January or February 1994. Notably, early first draft of GoldenEye by France dated January 1994 confirms close continuity with Dalton's tenure as 007, re-introducing characters such as Minister of Defence, and KGB head General Leonid Pushkin, both last seen in Living Daylights. When the deadline was not meet, Dalton surprised everyone on 12 April 1994 with the announcement that he was declined to return as Bond. The announcement of the new Bond came two months later, with Pierce Brosnan inheriting the role. In the mid-1990's, Kevin McClory announced he intended to yet again remake Thunderball using his ownership of the screenplay. The film was to be Title Warhead 2000 and Dalton was Eye to reprise the character of Bond. However, film failed to materialise.

Die Another Day (2002)

Cast & Crew James Bond: Pierce Brosnan Director: Lee Tamahori Producer: Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli Writer: Neal Purvis, Robert Wade Screenplay: Neal Purvis, Robert Wade Editor: Christian Wagner Music: David Arnold Theme song: Die Another Day mirwais ahmadzai madonna facts & Figures Budget: 142 million Gross: 431. 9 million distributed By: MGM Fox release: 20 November 2002 22 November 2002 running Time: 132 minutes preceded by: World Is not Enough followed by: Casino Royale Die Another Day Is twentieth James Bond series made by EON Productions and the fourth and final Film to star Pierce Brosnan as MI6 agent James Bond. It was released in 2002 and produced by Bond veterans Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. It is the first film not to feature Desmond Llewelyn as Q since Live and Let Die after his death from a car accident in 1999, days after World Is not Enough was release. Die Another Day, being the twentieth Bond Film and also being release year of Bond Film's 40 Anniversary, pays homage in some sort of way to every previous official James Bond Film. It also additionally references several Ian Fleming novels as well as novels by other official Bond authors. The story begins in the demilitarised zone between North and South Korea with a spectacular high-speed hovercraft chase and continues via Hong Kong to Cuba and London where Bond meets up with two ladies who are to play such important and differing roles in his quest to unmask traitors and to prevent war of catastrophic consequence. Hot on the trail of principal villains, Bond travels to Iceland where he experiences at first hand the power of an amazing new weapon before a dramatic confrontation with his main adversary back in Korea where it all start. Although not officially acknowledged as the second adaptation of Fleming's novel, Moonraker, Die Another Day includes plot elements from the book that go Beyond, in fact the movie contains references to numerous past films and books. In the novel, Nazi adopts a new identity, Hugo Drax, and becomes a popular British multi-millionaire. He then donated millions to create the Moonraker missile, which is supposed to be for Britain's protection but is actually meant to destroy London. Parallels between that plot and Die Another Day's plot are apparent. In addition, club called Blades, fencing club in this film, was featured as a card club in Moonraker and Bond and Villain have different forms of duels in those locations. Lastly, character of Miranda Frost was originally named Gala Brand, same name as Bond girl in the original Moonraker novel. This makes Die Another Day the first Bond Film since 1989's Licence to Kill to adapt substantial elements from Fleming's stories.
