James Bond movies order: Dr No to Spectre – The way to watch 007 movie series revealed

The James Bond franchise contains some of the best action films around, as well as the best spying. James Bond himself is one of the most sophisticated of spies, and one the ladies swoon over. But for fans wanting to watch his metamorphosis from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig, there is only one way to do it.

No Time to Die should have already been in cinemas, in time for the long Easter weekend.

However, due to the coronavirus and in the shadow of cinema closures all over the UK, it has been postponed until November.

One silver lining for fans is that, luckily, there is now plenty more time to catch up with all the Bond movies ahead of No Time to Die’s release.

With movies like those in the MCU, there may be multiple ways to enjoy the movies: chronologically and in order of release.

Of course, with films like those, the timeline is key.

However, with the James Bond franchise, the character is reborn and planted firmly in the time of the film’s creation.

This is why the later films starring Daniel Craig are incredibly high-tech compared to those starring Sean Connery and Roger Moore, which were almost like time capsules of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

But for those wanting to enjoy the movies, how do they watch them in order?

The best way is to enjoy these movies in order of release, which is listed below:

Dr No (1962)

From Russia with Love (1963)

Goldfinger (1964)

Thunderball (1965)

Casino Royale (1967) UNOFFICIAL

Quantum of Solace (2008)

Skyfall (2012)

Spectre (2015)

No Time to Die (2020)

Of course, some fans will want to ignore the films Never Say Never Again, and Casino Royale, which are not officially in the canon.

The 1967 Casino Royale was a spoof of the earlier films, so has a very different tone to the others.

Sean Connery made a comeback as Bond in Never Say Never Again, which came out the same year as Octopussy and was, effectively, a remake of Thunderball.

There were arguments over rights with this film so, in the end, it has been left out of the canon.

Without these movies, No Time to Die is the 25th films featuring 007 and is to be released on November 12.
