October 14, 2005, was the 78-year-old birthday of the famous movie star Roger Moore who played James Bond.
At the same time, it was also the first press conference for the film company to introduce Daniel Craig as the sixth James Bond.
Craig was wearing an Italian brand Brioni suit on this day, and he was also covered with a life jacket.
He came in a navy speedboat rushing on the Thames, which was the request of the army.
The reporters on the scene immediately had this response:
“It’s ridiculous, Bond wants to wear a life jacket.”
When the whole world learned that Craig had become James Bond in 2005, we had already said too much about the sour words given to him.
Even the public has no expectations for the future of “Casino Royale”, waiting to see it decline.
And now, Craig is about to step down as MI6’s top intelligence officer.
The documentary “Being James Bond” was released before the release of his farewell film “007: No Time to Die”.
The intention of this behavior is very obvious.
In addition to commemorating the longest-term Bond in history, let Craig himself, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, who produced the Bond film, vomit together since the nightmarish press conference on the River Thames in 2005. , 16 years of resentment and bitterness.
Craig is not an actor who likes to confess his feelings to the public. In fact, he never thought that he could climb into this kind of status as the king of “talking about things and listening to them”.
He has been acting as a weird, straightforward, and handsome supporting role since his debut. No one has ever thought that he is qualified to be the protagonist.
And “Being James Bond” revealed for the first time how the Broccoli family, who has been supervising 007 movies for many years, fell in love with this actor who has been a supporting role for ten thousand years.
This is the main reason why 007 fans cannot miss “Being James Bond”.
After the death of Albert Broccoli, the father of the 007 movie, his daughter Barbara and stepson Michael took up the most important action film series in film history.
And this is the first time they publicly talked about the details of their cooperation with Craig-especially those that are not enough for outsiders.
As you can see in “Being James Bond”, when Craig was praised and booed by the keyboard man in the Internet age, Barbara and Michael could only bite the quilt and endure.
They knew the reason for choosing Craig, but they couldn’t explain to the audience who were completely unclear about the situation and criticized Craig’s appearance.
And when Craig couldn’t help but go online to check everyone’s evaluation of him, he was extremely disappointed.
But he has to face the difficult stunts waiting for him on the daily set, which can be said to be exhausted physically and mentally.
And when “Casino Royale” was finally released, the boos all over the world turned into compliments in an instant.
For Craig, Barbara, and Michael, the hard work over the past year has come at a price, and it feels like a world away.
Including “007: No Time to Die”, Craig has performed a total of five 007 movies.
And like Craig Bond Chronicle “Being James Bond”, one by one analyzes the obstacles and errors encountered in the filming of these films.
For example, in “Quantum of Solace”, they encountered a common problem with the sequel: Although they had the determination to surpass the previous work, they were unable to hand over the work that surpassed the previous work in the end.
To make matters worse, they also encountered a Hollywood screenwriter strike. There was no complete script, and the Bond plot was not polished…
Craig can only perform as many stunts as possible to save the movie from his perspective.
To make matters worse, Daniel Craig, who had been in obscurity for ten years, suddenly became an international superstar…
He was forced to stay deep and avoid the paparazzi, fearing this change of being surrounded by others.
Then “Skyfall” came, and they had to climb up from the low evaluation of “Quantum of Solace” to create a new Bond movie…
“Being James Bond” is a documentary for the new era of Bond, recording the most ups and downs of Bond years in history.
Craig’s Bond movies have not always been so smooth, and his career is not as smooth as Sean Connery or Roger Moore.
Even Roger Moore, who has made the most Bond movies (7), has only fallen once in “The Man With The Golden Gun”.
But what about Craig? He played many episodes of 007 movies and the evaluation was relatively poor.
Craig’s first 4 movies, the process is like a roller coaster, with brilliance and low ebb.
The threshold, scale and scale of the special effects of his film shooting process are only getting higher and higher.
Including Javier Bardem stroking Craig’s thigh in “Skyfall”, this hint made Sony Pictures executives so angry that the crew should delete this scene.
The new character has joined the Bond series, and the old character has bid farewell to MI6. Our audience knows all of these.
But what we don’t know is what Craig thinks in these processes, the ups and downs in and out of these scenes.
And “Being James Bond” fills up this huge gap.
We have waited so long for 16 years of blank space, and “Being James Bond” only has 47 minutes to narrate. This is really the biggest shortcoming of this documentary.
In addition, “Being James Bond” has no other shortcomings.
And Craig Bond has more stories to tell.
We want to know how Craig used willpower to overcome his foot injury at Spectre.
We want to know how he concocted “Skyfall” with his friend Sam Mendes.
And many more changes in his mood when he decided to leave Bond.
But at least “Being James Bond” has already told us a clear context, allowing them to personally tell the key moments of these years.
“007: No Time to Die” will be the conclusion of Daniel Craig’s Bond, gather the essence of five Bond movies, and make the final official farewell.
The surprise of “Being James Bond”, in addition to presenting a part of “007: No Time to Die” in all the trailers does not have a new picture.
At the same time, it also presented Craig’s speech at the end of the filming of the last scene of “007: No Time to Die”.
This is his final speech to really bid farewell to Bond, and put an end to this unprecedented Bond that no one has seen before, and was complained of not being sufficiently romantic and elegant.
Whether you are a fan of 007 or Craig, “Being James Bond” is a documentary you must watch.
And it’s officially launched on Apple iTunes, go talk to your Bond about the last Goodbye.
