James Bond Franchise Unleashed English Article

After all, there is some charm in mystery right?

If you peep into the James Bonds flicks you will realize that even the seemingly bad actors have not done so bad.

Bond is nowadays not shown just as a comic figure jumped out of the book, but he also has profoundness in him. This can be seen in Spectre. 
Well, something in a light-hearted vein. Monicca Belucci is in her 50 now, and she is the oldest girlfriend of Bond in the series’ history. Also, she is four years elder to Daniel Craig. It is learnt that she was virtually amused when she asked to share screen space with Daniel Craig. But again, though she had only less screen space in Spectre, her mesmerizing presence was enough to woo the audience.

James Bond was first seen in celluloid in the US TV show Climax with American artist Barry Nelson enacting the role of Jimmy Bond. This was during the year 1954. Later Ian Fleming, who was keen on making his hero’s presence felt on the big screen, started endeavoring on a story that was tentatively titled James Bond: Secret Agent. And the rest is history with Peter Finch playing the effervescent Bond role in Network. Later Roger Moore was approached for the role but he was dropped due to his young age. But again it should be noted that he was two years elder to Sean Connery. Later, Connery was zeroed in for the role, and he went on to do five films (Connery is still considered to be favorite by many). Eventually, Connery left the Bond franchise and few other stars were considered, but some declined with the apprehension that donning the role of Connery is indeed a challenging one. Then George Lazenby donned the role of James Bond and in spite of being offered seven films he didn’t sustain. After that, Roger Moore went on to do Bond films after many stars were considered.

Well, killing more than 360 people, the Bond figure is indeed a force to reckon with. But again, in the current scenario, as you see Bond, the reason for him traversing to places was mostly associated with the establishment of Hollywood movies in Indian roots rather than the real necessity for him doing so.

Well, it’s 53 years since the James Bond franchise started reeling movies on James Bond. And now Spectre has hit the screens, and it tried very hard to better the previous versions of the franchise. It has the shades of Quantum of Solace, Casino Royale, and Skyfall. Daniel Craig has been donning the role of James Bond for over a decade, and he too managed to mesmerize his fans to a considerable degree. With Daniel Craig apparently calling it quits from the Bond franchise speculations are rife as to who will be the next Bond.

Now the question is: Is the relevance of  Bond films still in need in this modern day? Going forward, in what action will the powerful spy indulge himself? Only time will answer….
