The franchise has long been a huge draw for British viewers and fans alike, with a host of films, TV shows, novels, comics and games spanning the years, but many remain in their infancy.
The film series is by far the biggest in terms of global box office grosses and number of sequels.
Its long history means that, while it may have come and gone, its enduring appeal means that it’s likely to remain around for some time to come.
James Bond has made its mark on the lives of millions of people around the world, and its enduring popularity means that fans are likely to keep coming back to it, says James Bond producer Ian Fleming.
“There is a big audience in the UK who have watched the films, who’ve seen the movies and who have a passion for them, and we think that’s the reason why we still have films like The Man with the Golden Gun, Thunderball and The Spy Who Loved Me.”
It’s not like we’ve gone out of business and said, ‘Oh, you have to go to the movies.
We don’t want you to go back to our movies anymore’,” he says.”
The fact is, that the movies have become so iconic in terms the world that people come to see them again and again, and they want to see it again and more.
“With its enduring status, there are no plans for a new James Bond.
However, there’s a few reasons why the franchise could still be around for a while yet.
It’s easy to see why, with the likes of Casino Royale, Goldfinger, The Man With the Golden Sword and The World Is Not Enough among the top five films that make up the series.””
It was very, very popular,” says Fleming.
It’s easy to see why, with the likes of Casino Royale, Goldfinger, The Man With the Golden Sword and The World Is Not Enough among the top five films that make up the series.
“But the other reason that it might not go away is that it has so many other properties,” he says, explaining why some films have yet to see the light of day.
According to James Bond star Daniel Craig, the franchise is still worth a lot of money and will continue to grow for a long time to go.
“[The films] have helped make me a better actor and a better person.
I think people recognise the value of what I’ve achieved,” he said last year.”
I think it has helped me become a better human being and a happier human being.”
But for some fans, the James Bond franchise is no longer just a part of the British film industry.
For those fans, there is another reason for the series to be around.
As well as being the world’s biggest box office draw, James Bond is the world famous property of the United Kingdom.
In the last few years, it has become the property of one of the world most popular television shows, Game of Thrones.
With the popularity of the series, there has been an explosion in the production of new Bond films, including The Spy, Thunder and Spectre.
But while fans will continue watching the series in its entirety, some have already started to take note of the fact that, at this stage, the series is no more.
One fan, for example, wrote to the BBC after seeing the third James Bond movie, Spectre, in which the Bond franchise had been renewed for a sixth film.
“‘I am disappointed.
I know that you will keep the series but at the moment you don’t have any other films,’ he wrote.”
Why can’t you just go to another series, please?
Why is this franchise that has been such a big part of British culture going to die off?
“A series of films to come: The Man Who Loves You, The World is Not Enough, Thunderballs, The Spy and Thunderball 3D (all on Blu-ray)James Bond: World’s Greatest Spy A number of films are also in the pipeline.
There is speculation that a third James Bonds film could come before the end of the decade, with fans keen to see Bond on screen again.
And with Sky Studios in the process of filming its own Bond films in the near future, there will surely be a few new James Bonds to be found.
A new James Hardy Bond film is also in development.
James Bond, as he has become known since his first appearance in 1959, is a man who, despite being an old man, still finds it impossible to go home again.
James Hardy is set to star in a new Bond film, based on a script by James Bond writer Daniel Craig.
The plot is being kept under wraps for now, but Bond fans will be eager to find out more when the film is announced later this year.
