James Bond: 12(!) actors, and 27 movies in 60 years

6x James Bond

I’ve been looking for a list of all James Bond movies in chronological order myself more than once in the past, so when I eventually found the information I figured I’ll make it a little easier for others to find as well by posting a chronological list here.

The first Bond movie, Dr. No, premiered on October 5th, 1962.

The release of the most recent Bond movie, ‘No time to die’, was originally scheduled for March 31st, 2020, but got postponed a couple of times because of the coronavirus/COVID-19, and it was eventually released on September 28th 2021.

  1. So am I the only one that is saddened by the death of James Bond in the movie No Time to Die….I understand Craig current JB wanted out of the part…I think there could of been another way…

      1. The movie has been out months. If you haven’t seen it yet don’t cry cos you read spoilers

  2. No mention of the first person to portray Bond on the big screen? Stunt man Bob Simmons in the original gunbarrel scene

      1. Or the Spy Maker with Jason Connery, which gives insite to the life the author lived, and where a lot of the recurring characters come from.
