Daniel Craig reveals that his favorite James Bond film is a classic starring Sean Connery – WATCH.
DANIEL CRAIG has confessed that his favorite James Bond film is a classic starring Sean Connery.
To date, 25 official James Bond films have been released, including No Time To Die. And now, outgoing 007 Daniel Craig has revealed which of the 60 films he enjoys the most. The top Bond film for the 53-year-old is a Sean Connery classic.
“Goldfinger, I suppose, is my favorite James Bond movie,” Craig revealed during a Q&A session with British GQ.
Following Dr No and From Russia with Love, this was Connery’s third film in the franchise.
Goldfinger was also the final Bond film set that Ian Fleming, the creator of 007, visited before his death. Unfortunately, he was unable to see the film.
“I love Dr No,” Craig continued, “but it was kind of where Sean Connery became the James Bond we know and love.”
Which Bond film is #DanielCraig’s personal favorite? It may surprise you… #NoTimeToDie #GQVsTheUniverse pic.twitter.com/i6H5Rl1A6j https://t.co/hM7kIpoiKN #NoTimeToDie #GQVsTheUniverse “I look at what I’ve done and go, ‘That’s part of Goldfinger,'” Craig remarked in the new Apple documentary Becoming James Bond, which is available to rent for free until October 7.
“I’m thinking to myself, ‘Wow, I’m related to Goldfinger, Dr. No, and Live And Let Die.'” My term is what it is, but it is merely a little portion of a larger picture.
“As I reflect on the films, I am very proud of each and every one of them.” I know we’ve given it our all, and we’ve given it our all.” Craig revealed earlier this year that his favorite James Bond scene is from Roger Moore’s Live and Let Die.
Craig confessed that The Mummy, starring his wife Rachel Weisz, was one of his favorites, along with Frozen, Goodfellas, Gladiator, and The Avengers, in a short piece for Empire magazine detailing his favorite film moments.
However, the lone mention of James Bond on his list came from Sir Roger Moore’s 1973 debut, Live and Let Die.
“Cheering as Roger Moore danced over alligators,” Craig wrote simply.
Bond aficionados will recall the sequence in which the one-armed Tee Hee abandons 007 to be eaten by real crocodiles on a Deep South farm. Moore’s spy, on the other hand, was able to get away by utilizing the creatures as stepping stones.
Live and Let Live The sequence was shot at the Jamaica Safari Village in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
