George Lazenby It took James Bond from being a successful series of books to an unprecedented worldwide phenomenon, hitting its peak in the mids. The actor may change. But more than 50 years later we still eagerly await each new instalment in the series.
Before we look at each film, there are a couple of questions that are asked frequently by more more casual fans. How many James Bond movies are there?
At the time of this update, in Aprilthere are 24 Bond movies in the series produced by Eon Productions. You can read about these three productions here. The producers of those films owned the rights to make them. When is the next James Bond movie due out?
The next Bond film, currently known simply as Bond 25, is currently scheduled for release in February You can follow all the latest news about Bond 25 here.
But when Saltzman refused they teamed up instead and created Eon Productions to put on the big screen. They also added Felix Leiter, who did not appear in the book. Apart from the James Bond Theme the music is largely unmemorable.
The second Bond film makes great use of the location work in Istanbul, as well as the scenes on board the Orient Express as Bond, Tania and Kerim flee with the Lektor. It also turned generations of boys that followed into avid collectors.
It also features one of the most memorable Bond girls in the shape of Pussy Galore and a pre-title sequence to which few of the films that followed have even come close in equalling. Whether or not Goldfinger is the best film in the series is a moot point. Without a doubt though, it is the most iconic Bond film.
Back came the DB5 for the pre-title sequence as well as a Bell-Textron jet pack in this story of SPECTRE holding the 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.
Filmed largely in The Bahamas, the underwater scenes are sometimes criticised 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 Instead the producers brought in Roald Dahl to write the screenplay.
How could the series continue without him? George Lazenby had huge shoes to fill after Connery and his lack of acting experience shows. However, offsetting that are some great action sequences in Swiss Alps, the terrific Piz Gloria and what many fans consider to be the best John Barry score.
Lazenby quit after just one film following bad advice from his manager, but if he had remained no doubt he would have grown into the role and had the physicality required of Bond.
His determination in landing the role is a lesson to us all that if there is something you want badly enough you should just keep going and make it happen. That much he achieved absolutely. In many ways Diamonds Are Forever is the first film of what we typically think of as Roger Moore era, with an excessive use of comedy that verges on slapstick and further distances the series from Ian Fleming.
The film has its moments, such as the first fight in the lift in Amsterdam and Connery, although not at his prime, sometimes delivers some good one-liners. The Roger Moore era became known for the double entendres and girls falling into bed with him at the mere hint of an eyebrow raise.
Although partly filmed in Jamaica it was set on the fictional Caribbean island of San Monique and much of the action takes place in Louisiana.
Borrowing heavily on the Blaxploitation movies popular at the time, Live And Let Die was a world away from the films made just a decade before.
While it is dismissed by many Bond fans as one of the weakest in the series it does at least have the benefit of a great villain in the shape of Scaramanga, played by Christopher Lee, and one of the most collectible items in the shape of the Golden Gun.A Bond girl is a character (or the actress portraying a character) who is an attractive love interest or female sidekick of James Bond in a novel, film, or video game.
Bond girls occasionally have names that are double entendres or puns, such as Pussy Galore, Plenty O'Toole, Xenia Onatopp, or Holly Goodhead, and are considered "ubiquitous symbol[s] of glamour and sophistication.".
Tim George Jan 15, With James Bond returning to our screens in , what's the challenge ahead for Daniel Craig's final movie? After a year and change of silence, we now have a release date for Bond 25 (8th November, , probably a week or two earlier in the UK) and a James Bond (Saint Blue Eyes himself, Daniel Craig).
It will be a while before we start to get more details like a. Other important elements which run through most of the films include Bond's cars, his guns, and the gadgets with which he is supplied by Q Branch. The films are also noted for Bond's relationships with various women, The 23 James Bond films produced by Eon Productions, which have grossed $4, million in box office returns alone.
