The franchise has been running strong for over 50 years and watching the James Bond movies in order remains the best way to revisit the series. After bigger names like Cary Grant and David Niven turned down the chance to play James Bond in his first big screen adventure Dr. No, a relative unknown named Sean Connery was cast instead. Over the course of Connery’s run, the core elements that would cement the franchise would be established – the exotic locations, the gadgets, the flamboyant villains and so on.
While the popularity of the James Bond series has gone up and down over the decades, the franchise has displayed an impressive ability to reinvent itself. Bond has found himself in grounded, cold war spy thrillers to fighting bad guys in outer space. Each actor who has inherited the role has made it their own, giving every era a different flavor. With 24 movies and counting, rewatching the James Bond movies in order can be a daunting task, but it’s still the best way to experience the series.
