Ian Fleming's James Bond character has entertained motion picture audiences for nearly sixty years, and the filmmakers have come a long way since they spent $1 million producing the very first James Bond movie, Dr. No, in 1962. The 2015 Bond title, SPECTRE, cost $250 million and grossed $881 million worldwide-and 2020's No Time To Die is certain to become another global blockbuster.

The James Bond Movie Encyclopedia is the completely up-to-date edition of author Steven Jay Rubin's seminal work on the James Bond film series. It covers the entire series through this year's No Time To Die.

The book is packed with behind-the-scenes information based on interviews with the cast and filmmakers, fascinating facts, trivia, bloopers, classic quotes, character bios, and cast and filmmaker bios, it showcases the type of exhaustive research that has been a hallmark of Rubin's work in film history. It also features hundreds of rare and unusual still photographs of the participants both in front of and behind the camera.

George Lazenby said, “Nobody does 007 encyclopedias better than Bond historian Steven Jay Rubin. Buy this one. M's orders.”
