Update: Amazon has confirmed to T3 that the complete James Bond Collection will be available for two months, while No Time to Die will be available to stream for 12 months on the platform. Further details about other territories will be confirmed in the future.
Note: Amazon previously stated that the James Bond Collection would be arriving in all territories, however, this was an error and will just be available in the UK for now. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Original Story: Amazon has revealed that all 25 James Bond movies will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video later this month, including Daniel Craig's swansong as 007 in No Time to Die.
Starting on April 15th, the complete James Bond Collection can be watched on the streaming platform for a "limited time". This will include the full official adventures from Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig. It will not include Casino Royale (1967) and Never Say Never Again as these two flicks were not developed by EON Productions and are, therefore, not considered canon.
It will also mark the streaming premiere of No Time to Die, which debuted in cinemas in September 2021 and marked the final outing of Daniel Craig after 15 years in the role. The movie sees Bond return to MI6 to investigate a new mysterious villain (played by Rami Malek) who is armed with a new weapon that could kill millions. No Time to Die made approximately $770 million at the global box office, however, was one of the first major cinema releases post-pandemic.
The full list of films available to stream from next week are listed below:
- Dr. No
- From Russia with Love
- You Only Live Twice
- On Her Majesty's Secret Service
- Diamonds are Forever
- Live and Let Die
- The Man with the Golden Gun
- The Spy Who Loved Me
- For Your Eyes Only
- A View to a Kill
- The Living Daylights
- License to Kill
- Tomorrow Never Dies
- The World is Not Enough
- Die Another Day
- Casino Royale
- Quantum of Solace
- No TIme to Die
Since Amazon closed its purchase of MGM for $8.5 billion dollars in March earlier this year (via Variety), fans of the world's greatest spy have been eagerly awaiting the collection's arrival on the platform. Though, it is interesting that they will only be available for a limited time.
Currently, multiple James Bond films have been licensed out to Hulu and Netflix in the US and other territories, so it would make sense that once those deals expire that Amazon would eventually become the only home of IP.
For years, the only way to watch James Bond on streaming was by purchasing each individual movie via Amazon Prime Video. Now though, anyone that subscribes to Amazon Prime Video will get the full collection included for free. Long may it continue. I'm personally excited to make my way through the Sean Connery era from the early 60s up to the early 70s. I haven't watched No Time to Die since cinemas either, so it makes sense for a rewatch.
T3 has reached out to Amazon for clarification as to whether all of the films will be available in all territories or simply in the UK alone.
