“In No Time To Die,” Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend, Felix Leiter from the CIA, turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
Craig’s “Casino Royale,” “Quantum Of Solace,” “Skyfall” and “Spectre” have grossed more than $3.1 billion in worldwide box office collectively. “Skyfall” ($1.1 billion) and “Spectre” ($880 million) are the two highest-grossing films in the franchise.
