It’s been 15 years since Daniel Craig first donned the tux and martini glass as James Bond. His first Bond film was 2006’s “Casino Royale.” He’s gone onbto play the role four additional times, including the latest “No Time to Die,” which will be his last entry and premieres Friday.
Over the years, in interviews and in speculative media articles, Craig often seemed to be thoroughly tired of playing the part. But just when he thought he was out, producers would pull him back in. With money. Buckets of money.
And that makes sense. Daniel Craig has been an extremely successful James Bond at the box office.
Not including “No Time to Die,” Daniel’s run as Bond has generated a little over $3 billion in ticket sales alone. It has earned at least several billion more from product placement, licensing and syndication deals.
So it made sense that the film’s producers would continue to throw piles of money at Daniel to stay in the picture for as many movies as possible.
