It’s the 60th anniversary of the James Bond movies. That should be celebrated, and so will Amazon Prime Video. And how!

Daniel Craig has finally been freed from James Bond. The British actor had a love-hate relationship with the role, mainly because of the physical agony that the shooting of especially skyfall were for him.

The Great James Bond Quest

Now he can take it easy, for example by playing a detective in Netflix’s new mega franchise. Meanwhile speculate bookmakers pressure off. Who will be the new Bond?

Is it Henry Cavill, Idris Elba, or the recently emerged favorite from Fantastic Beasts? We have listed the most promising candidates according to British betting offices in this article.

However, the reality is that we will probably still be surprised by the final choice of producer Barbara Broccoli. She recently let go of the fact that it could just take another two years before they even start working on the next 007 film.

She did want to reveal that the new Bond will be a man. Can we put all discussions about the gender of the new 007 behind us. Happy.

The streaming service has dropped a brand new trailer for The Sound of 007. A documentary that delves into the iconic music of the James Bond films. The direction is in the hands of Mat Whitecross, who you may know from the magnificent Oasis documentary supersonic.

The documentary delves into the “remarkable history of six decades of James Bond music, taking viewers on a journey through Sean Connery’s Dr No until Daniel Craig’s last appearance in No Time to Die.

The music is explained by Barbara Broccoli, the producer behind the film franchise. “The adrenaline, the tension, the joy, the fear. You hear the Bond theme and it gives you that shot,Broccoli said in the trailer.

Concert for charity

The documentary can be streamed on Amazon Prime Video from October 5, but it doesn’t stop there! On October 4, the famed Royal Albert Hall will also host a special charity concert to commemorate the film franchise’s 60th anniversary.

Then we’re talking about The Sound of 007 in Concert. A long list of artists will perform the iconic music from the films together with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.

Don’t worry: you don’t have to book a return ticket to London. A registration of the concert will also be coming to Amazon Prime Video later this year. Unfortunately, no release date has yet been announced. Ah, you can’t have everything!
