James Bond: 12(!) actors, and 26 movies in 58 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 release for the upcoming Bond movie, ‘No time to die’, was originally scheduled for March 31st, 2020, got then postponed to November 12th 2020 and then to April 2nd, 2021, and is now set to September 30th 2021, because of the coronavirus/COVID-19.

26 movies

In the past 58 years, a total of 26 James Bond films has been made:

  1. A. very sad day for both the Scottish people, actors in general and the world community as a whole. In his prime I think that he was my favorite 007 by far.

    May he forever Rest In Peace after bringing the world so much joy. I just hope that he managed to do that in his private world too!

    1. You are of course 100% correct! How on earth did that mistake slip on there?
      (and how come no one else noticed all these years? )

      I’ll correct it before the day is over!

    1. No. We know that she becomes 007 after Bond retires following the events of “Specter”. She is not Bond. The film franchise is “James Bond – 007”. No, she does not become the next Bond.
