Daniel Craig’s time as 007 is officially over. The actor bid adieu to the stylish spy in No Time to Die. While the movie marked his final performance for the franchise, it wasn’t his only fond farewell to the character. The release of the film’s final trailer last August came with an announcement fans would be getting a bonus goodbye. Specifically, a 45-minute retrospective on Craig’s time playing the man with a license to kill. Being James Bond arrived on Apple TV last September. Now it’s available on YouTube where you can watch it for free.
The official James Bond 007 YouTube page has posted the full Being James Bond documentary. (Which we first heard about at Gizmodo.) Previously it was available only to Apple TV subscribers. Now fans of the franchise everywhere can watch the look back on the decade and a half Craig owned the role. Here’s the doc’s official synopsis:
In this special 45 minute retrospective, Daniel Craig candidly reflects on his 15 year tenure as James Bond. Including never-before-seen archival footage spanning from Casino Royale to No Time To Die, Craig shares his personal memories in conversation with 007 producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, in the lead up to his final performance as the iconic secret agent.
The documentary’s free release on YouTube accompanied the news MGM and EON Productions will bring No Time to Die back to theaters this weekend, starting Friday, January 21. The film will arrive in IMAX locations around the country to celebrate the franchise’s 60th anniversary. Select showings will also feature a Q&A that will air before the film. It will include Craig and director Cary Joji Fukunaga.
That’s an exclusive event right now. But so was this documentary. Hopefully, for those who can’t make it to a theater this weekend, we’ll get to tell you in a few months the whole Q&A session is also available for free online.
