Fans can stream special film as free rental on Apple TV app only from Sept. 7 through Oct. 7, ahead of theatrical release of ‘No Time To Die’

“Being James Bond,” from Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), will be exclusively available to stream on the Apple TV app as a free rental ahead of the theatrical release of the upcoming 25th film in the James Bond franchise, “No Time To Die.”

In this special 45-minute retrospective, Daniel Craig candidly reflects on his 15-year adventure as James Bond. Customers in over 30 countries and regions around the globe can rent the film for free and stream it exclusively on the Apple TV app from Sept. 7 to Oct. 7.

Including never-before-seen archival footage from “Casino Royale” to the upcoming 25th film, “No Time To Die,” Craig shares his personal memories in conversation with 007 producers, Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, in the lead-up to his final performance as James Bond.

“A lot of people here have worked on five pictures with me,” Craig notes during the conversation with the films’ producers in “Being James Bond.” “I've loved every single second of these movies, and especially this one because I've got up every morning and I've had the chance to work with you guys, and that has been one of the greatest honors of my life.”

In the film, Broccoli says, “Daniel has just taken this, the character, the series, the whole thing, to a place that is so … extraordinary. And so emotionally satisfying.”

Wilson adds, “It's also emotionally tough being Daniel's last one. It's tough on Barbara; it's tough on me.”
