James Bond film Viaplay
Time for James Bond bonanza on Nordic streaming service Viaplay. From March 1, 25 Bond films are available exclusively on Viaplay as a warm-up to the cinematic release of No Time To Die in April 2020. A Bond marathon including all titles lasts for two days, four hours and 56 minutes on Viaplay.

The iconic journey for the Bond film series began in 1962 when Dr. No starring Sean Connery premiered in the UK. Connery went on to play Ian Fleming's 007 in a total of seven films including the 'unofficial' Never Say Never Again in 1983, which basically is a remake of the 1965 film Thunderball. The film's title is rumored to be the answer Connery received from his wife after saying that he would never play Bond again.

“More men have walked on the moon than have played James Bond”


Australian model turned actor, George Lazenby, got the challenging task of following Connery as 007 ending up in many fans favourite film from 1969, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, declining an offer to continue for another six films. After Connery briefly came back, another fan favorite followed and shouldered the role of Bond - Roger Moore. With a total of seven Bond films under his belt, Moore, along with Sean Connery, is one of the actors who has played Bond the most. However, Moore won the "Battle of Bond" in 1983, when Moore's Bond movie Octopussy premiered. The same year as Connery's Never Say Never Again.

After Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton took over and made two films as James Bond before hanging up the tuxedo. Pierce Brosnan became the next 007 when he took over the baton in the 1995 film GoldenEye. To date, Brosnan is the deadliest Bond as he managed to eliminate a total of 135 bad guys over four films.

In 2006, Bond again got a new face when Daniel Craig made his debut with Casino Royale where we find out how Bond got his licence to kill. In the 2012 film Skyfall, we got to see the agent's childhood home and a historic battle in true Bond spirit.

In April 2020, Daniel Craig returns as James Bond for the fifth and last time on the big screen in No Time To Die. Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.


Between March 1 and May 31, twenty-five of the James films is available on Viaplay.
