One of the most famous protagonists in movie history is about to collaborate with a rich bald guy, and no we are not talking about Blofeld. We are of course talking about James Bond coming to the Amazon Prime Video streaming service. It has recently been announced that every single James Bond movie will be making its way to Amazon Prime, from Dr. No with Sean Connery to No Time to Die with Daniel Craig.
This is undoubtedly a large offering for the service as the James Bond franchise is one of the most profitable film franchises of all time, although, with 25 different outings, that is not surprising. When exactly are the films coming to the streaming service, and are there any other promotions that Amazon are offering to promote their newly added movies?
