The documentary Being James Bond from MGM will be available to stream as a free rental exclusively on the Apple TV app ahead of the upcoming theatrical release of No Time to Die, the 25th film in the official “James Bond” franchise. Customers in more than 30 countries and regions around the globe can access the film for free on the Apple TV app from Sept. 7 to Oct. 7.
The 45-minute retrospective features actor Daniel Craig candidly reflecting on his 15-year tenure as the cinematic secret agent. Including never-before-seen archival footage from Casino Royale to No Time to Die, Craig shares his personal memories in conversation with 007 producers, Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, in the lead up to his final performance as James Bond.
“A lot of people here have worked on five pictures with me,” Craig notes during the conversation with the films’ producers in Being James Bond. “I’ve loved every single second of these movies, and especially this one because I’ve got up every morning and I’ve had the chance to work with you guys, and that has been one of the greatest honors of my life.”
“Daniel has just taken this, the character, the series, the whole thing, to a place that is so … extraordinary. And so emotionally satisfying,” Broccoli says in the documentary.
“It’s also emotionally tough being Daniel’s last one. It’s tough on Barbara, it’s tough on me,” Wilson adds.
