On October 5th, it will be 60 years since "James Bond - 007 hunts Dr. No" was the very first Bond film that was released in English cinemas. The venerable James Bond film studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, MGM for short, has been part of the Amazon group since May last year. For the 60th anniversary of the successful film series, all James Bond films - with one exception - are now included in the flat rate on Amazon's streaming service. Only the latest part of the series, "No Time to Die" from 2021, will not be available.
In Germany, the 24 Bond titles will be available "for a limited period" on Prime Video, according to the "Hollywood Reporter". For how long exactly is not known at this time.
In addition to iconic films such as "Goldfinger" (1964) with Sean Connery (1930-2020), "The Spy Who Loved Me" (1977) with Roger Moore (1927-2017) or Pierce Brosnan's (69) Bond debut in " GoldenEye" (1995) also launches "The Sound of 007" on Amazon's streaming service on October 5. The music documentary is all about the film music of the Bond series, which spans six decades - from the legendary "James Bond Theme" composed by Monty Norman (1928-2022) to numerous well-known musicians such as Beatles legend Paul McCartney (80), Adele ( 34) or most recently Billie Eilish (20), who contributed theme songs to individual entries in the series.
In addition, on the occasion of the Bond anniversary, the gala concert "The Sound of 007 in Concert" will take place in London's Royal Albert Hall on October 4th. The singer Shirley Bassey (85) and the band Garbage will perform music from the Bond films here - among others. A recording of the concert entitled "The Sound of 007: LIVE from the Royal Albert Hall" will also be available on Prime Video from October 5th.
