Good news for all Agent 007 fans: Almost all James Bond movies are coming to Amazon Prime Video soon. The streaming service announced this yesterday. The films will be shown on the platform for a limited period from the day after tomorrow, May 30.
Billion dollar company Amazon took over the film studio MGM last year. That means that from then on Jeff Bezos’ company owned the rights to all of the studio’s films, including those of the entire James Bond repertoire. However, not all films were allowed to go straight to the Prime Video streaming service, and Amazon still seems to be bound by agreements that were made at the time. The Bond films will only be coming to the platform next week.
As mentioned, not all films about agent 007 come to the platform. Two are missing: Never Say Never Again (1983) and Casino Royale (1967). It’s not clear why the two are not part of this temporary Bond program. Fortunately, the franchise is large enough and even incomplete for hours of viewing pleasure.
From next Monday, 30th of May, the above James Bond movies can all be seen on Amazon Prime Video. Are you curious about what else will appear on Amazon Prmie Video in the near future? Here you will find our complete overview.
