    Play trailer
    137 minutes

    Skyfall is considered one of the top James Bond films in the series. Presumed dead for three months, 007 resurfaces to save his mentor and boss, M (Judi Dench). Looking back at its predecessors, Daniel Craig's James Bond and the overall atmosphere in Skyfall is grittier, darker, and more real when it comes to consequences and vulnerabilities. We witness a departure of some beloved characters and appearance of some new ones, no matter what, the Ian Flaming's creation will move forward. Also, this 23rd Bond film has one of the best songs in its history, and that's Adele's Academy Award winning theme Skyfall. Craig is joined by a mastermind villain in the form of Javier Bardem, and Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny.

  • On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)

    Play trailer
    2h 16min

    In the sixth James Bond film, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, we got a taste of a new 007. One-time-Bond George Lazenby jumped in Sean Connery’s place after You Only Live Twice, and the result is one of the finest works in the franchise. In the film, James Bond squares off with the evil mastermind and SPECTRE leader Blofeld, played by Telly Savalas. On Her Majesty's Secret Service is also often mentioned for having one of the best and meaningful Bond girls (whom Bond eventually marries in the film) and she's played by talented Diana Rigg. Rent it on DVD and Blu-ray to get additional content from the Bond world, such as Commentary Featuring Director Peter Hunt and Members of The Cast and Crew and Shot on Ice - Original 1969 Ford Promo Film.

  • James Bond: You Only Live Twice (1967)

    Play trailer
    112 minutes

    You Only Live Twice is the film where the evil Spectre organization shows its face once again. U.S. and Soviet manned spaceships are hijacked while orbiting Earth, and it’s up to James Bond (Sean Connery) and the Japanese secret service ninja force to prevent a nuclear war. You Only Live Twice is the fifth film in the James Bond series, and it features Nancy Sinatra’s song of the same name as the theme song. It is worth mentioning that one of the writers for this Bond is Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and many other stories) which results in a rather witty screenplay. The villain Blofeld is one of the most recognizable characters, thanks to his trademark cat by his side. Check the film out on DVD and Blu-ray, and get extras such as commentary featuring director Lewis Gilbert and members of the cast and crew.

  • James Bond: Casino Royale (2006)

    Play trailer
    138 minutes

    Casino Royale marked a new start for the James Bond franchise, but it's the 21st film in the James Bond film series. The film introduced Daniel Craig as new Bond even though he's not a typical Bond character, which later turned out to be a good quality. Casino Royale's plot also centres on the events before James Bond got his licence to kill. This is where we see how he gets his "00" status, adorned with more action scenes, a bit more violence and visual effects on a grander scale. We follow Bond on his first mission where he must defeat a weapons dealer in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale. All-star cast includes Judi Dench as M (head of the British Secret Service), Eva Green, Mads Mikkelsen as the inevitable villain, and many more.
