At first everyone objected, what was it, sir, ‘There would be no Blonde Bond’… Besides, this new Bond was no gentleman at all, he sounded like a rude guy… But at the point where we’ve come today, Daniel Craig stop proving himself, he’s the best ever. It was the highest-grossing 007. The depth he brought to the character with his unique style may have been influential enough to determine the fate of future James Bond films. On the one hand, as discussions about who will be the new 007 continue, let’s say goodbye to Daniel Craig, who arrives in theaters with the 5th and final Bond, as he deserves.
Eon Productions’ first Bond film in 1962, “Dr. James Bond, which he began with ‘No’ and continued with the 25th film nearly 60 years later, has become the third highest-grossing franchise in movie history with a total gross of $7 billion British agent James Bond, created by writer Ian Fleming, is now unquestionably the most filmed character in movie history (obviously Marvel is working very strong on that and that title may change hands soon, but Bond is so far unmatched.) Which of these actors is the most successful James Bond in the series, which started with Sean Connery (6 movies) and continued with George Lazenby (1 film), Roger Moore (7 films), Timothy Dalton (2 films) and Pierce Brosnan (4 films) It’s not a question that can be concluded so easily, because each has his own reasons for preference.Daniel Craig, on the other hand, is indisputable that aside from his blonde hair s, he made a significant difference in the role. With “Casino Royale”, in which he played the role of 007, a serious stylistic difference occurred in the Bond films, and he turned to more realistic narratives preferred by productions such as Bourne and Mission: Impossible. in post-2000 Hollywood action movies.
How Daniel Craig, who was going to say goodbye to his 007 tuxedo and maybe drink a Martini for a while with “No Time To Die”, became a Bond and what marked his films? First, he left behind his career of 5 Bond series with “Casino Royale” (2006), “Quantum of Solace” (2008), “Skyfall” (2012), “Spectre” (2015) and finally ” No Time To Die” We decided to listen to Daniel Craig’s 007 adventure in his own words, which we compiled from interviews with him.
THE BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING
Daniel Craig explains: “It was thanks to Mary Selway, the casting director and my dear friend who took me under her wing from my theater school. I wanted to make films and Mary helped me a lot in this direction. He worked on both big productions like the Spielberg films and some very interesting little British films and was a very close friend of Barbara Broccoli Then Mary died and I carried her coffin Then I met Barbara Broccoli. At the time, I had no idea who she was, I thought she was a 70-year-old woman who made Bond movies. But she’s my age and she’s a beautiful, beautiful woman. He came up to me and said ‘Hello Daniel’, we somehow met, six months later he called me and said, ‘Let’s have some tea.
DO YOU WANT 007?
“I went there, we sat down, we talked; He said to me, ‘We want you to be James Bond. I said ah… it’s okay, so why? “Because we really want you to,” he said. I was cocky too, so I said I couldn’t say anything without seeing the script. They sent me the script written by Paul Haggis and I read it all in 10 minutes. Haggis had written an excellent screenplay based on Casino Royale. It was a scenario that did the opposite of what they had done before, and I didn’t want to do what they had done to this day anyway, and I was saying that if it were to happen again, I wouldn’t do it. So after all, I wasn’t going to impersonate Pierce, I didn’t want to try to be like Sean… But this scenario was different and I could be any Bond I wanted; like a humorless Bond… (laughs) I said to Barbara; If you want me to be Bond, if I’m going to come on this set and say, “My name is James Bond”, it’s only if you involve me in all phases of the film. It was a role that would change my whole life, and he did. So I wanted to know everything, I didn’t want to go on set and be in the dark.”
I went to the bar and drank a martini
“Still, my decision-making process took a long time. During this time, I always asked those around me, my relatives, what do you think, what should I do. I was shooting “The Invasion” in Baltimore and came to the studio at the time to do a test shoot, then came back and continued. I was grocery shopping, buying weekly groceries and everything, the phone rang. I was hungry, Barbara was calling and she said “We are with you son”. I said ok, hung up and calmly left the cart, went to the liquor aisle and bought a bottle of vodka, a bottle of vermouth, a shaker and a cocktail glass . Then I came home and started drinking. It was very sad at the same time because I was alone and I couldn’t tell anyone, it was forbidden. After drinking like three, I went to a bar. I drank all three martinis there and had to smile the whole time because the bartender came over and said, ‘What happened, are you so happy?’ mentioned. And I said to him, ‘I don’t know'”.
LONGEST BOND FILM: NO TIME TO DIE
“No Time To Die”, which is the longest Bond film at 163 minutes, recounts the events that unfold when an old friend of James Bond from the CIA asks him for help. Other roles in the film include Ana De Armas, Lea Seydoux, Lashana Lynch as MI& Agents (for whom there was plenty of Bond commentary coming for her), Naomie Harris (Eve Moneypenny), Rami Ralek and Christophe Waltz from the cast of villains. Once again Ralph Fiennes takes matters into his own hands. Sitting in the director’s chair is Cary Joji Fukunaga, who rose to fame with the television series “True Detective”. While Daniel Craig uses the latest Land Rover Defender in this latest film, the Aston Martin Valhalla is known to be seen in one scene but not used. Last but not least, of course; Dark-minded young generation star Billie Eilish sings the song of the same name from No Time To Die, and trust me, it’s not bad.
DANIEL CRAIG’S “BOND GIRLS”
Vesper Lynd (“Casino Royale”)
For many, Vesper Leynd, played by Eva Green in ‘Casino Royale’, was James Bond’s first true love to date. Although he was previously married (Teresa di Vincenzo, played by Diana Rigg in the film “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”), Daniel Craig became the actor who made Bond feel true love with his first film .
Madeleine Swann (“Spectre”)
It is believed that James Bond, deeply grieved by the death of Vesper Lynd, brought out a French actress: Lea Seydoux. Playing the role of Madeleine Swann in the film “Spectre” and appearing in “No Time To Die”, the actress is Craig’s Bond’s latest love with her mysterious and pure beauty.
Camille Montes (“Quantum of Solace”)
Camille Montes, played by Olga Kurylenko in Daniel Craig’s second Bond film, “Quantum of Solace”, was probably one of the toughest Bond girls of all time. Plus, she had a significant difference as the first Bond girl not to sleep with James Bond (among those who played a major role, of course).
Lucia Sciarra (“Spectre”)
You may remember that Lucia, played by Monica Bellucci, was criticized for being too old (she was 50), but after all we are talking about one of the most beautiful women in the world, how old is she? she ? Bond also agreed with us.
Daniel Craig’s luck was definitely out for the French. Berenice Marlohe, who starred as Séverine in “Skyfall,” was also one of France’s most prominent beauties as a tragic film noir character.
Strawberry Fields (“Quantum of Solace”)
Her name suffices… Gemma Arterton, whom we saw in a short but memorable role (her whole body was covered in oil when she died), was without a doubt one of the most beautiful Bond girls, I wish give him a little more opportunity.
THE “EVIL” OF DANIEL CRAIG
Raoul Silva (“Skyfall”)
It was Javier Bardem’s destiny to portray one of the most charismatic villains not just of the Daniel Craig era, but of all of Bond history. Specifically, it was Bardem himself who made the role unforgettable in this terrific first-meeting scene with homoerotic overtones.
The Cipher (“Casino Royale”)
Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen is currently at the height of his fame, but he hasn’t had a bad time with Le Chiffre, who he played in “Casino Royale” in 2006. The poker scene where they take on Bond is particularly memorable.
