'Being James Bond' Retrospective Will Be Free to Watch Through Apple TV App

Update 9/7/21: "Being James Bond" is now available to watch through the Apple TV app.


Ahead of the theatrical release of James Bond film "No Time To Die" on October 8 in the United States, a 45-minute retrospective titled "Being James Bond" will be available to watch for free through the Apple TV app, according to Deadline.


The story from MGM is said to feature Daniel Craig reflecting on his 15 years playing Bond, with never-before-seen archival footage from his conversations with producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. The retrospective will be available for free through the Apple TV app in over 30 regions from September 7 through October 7.

Amazon in May announced it reached an agreement with MGM to acquire the entertainment company for $8.45 billion, following a report last year that claimed MGM had reached out to companies like Apple and Netflix to gauge interest in a potential acquisition. Amazon said it would help preserve MGM's heritage and catalog of films, and provide customers with greater access to MGM's existing works, such as the James Bond franchise.

Bond movies are 10% product placement, 40% photography/scenery, 30% special effects/CGI/action choreography, 15% women, 5% script.
You make it sound like it’s a bad thing ??

And largely repetitious too! Like Diamonds are Forever, and Die Another Day.
Shut your mouth. Diamonds are Forever is a classic. Jill St. John and Sausage King Jimmy Dean in the same film, plus one of the best theme songs in a franchise known for its theme songs.
Die Another Day, on the other hand, was straight garbage that focused more on its casting and trying to setup Halle Berry for her own spinoff instead of waiting to see if the character was liked enough to even warrant it in the first place. (she wasn't, and the Jinx spinoff plans were silently but quickly scrapped after the second week) Add to that some of the clunkiest dialogue in the entire franchise, a forgettable villain with obvious twist co-villian, and special effects shots that the VFX team clearly gave up on halfway through rendering (looking at you, wave surfing scene) and you've got a disappointing note to end the Brosnan era on.

Anyone that expects more than girls, guns and gizmos from a Bond film probably also expects a Broadway level Shakespeare performance from a traveling circus.

It may not be planned as the last one but that might wind up happening once the audience sees what's planned for future outings.
This might be true, the decisions and direction of Bond25 could kill the franchise.

Although, I doubt it would stay dead.

Hollywood is out of ideas, so they will most likely resurrect the Bond franchise eventually with a reboot.
