Bond, James Bond. Since Sean Connery uttered these famous lines in Bond's first appearance on the big screen in 1962's Dr. No, the name has become synonymous with the action-espionage genre. Six actors have portrayed Ian Fleming's legendary secret agent across 24 movies spanning over 50 years, but which is the greatest Bond movie of all time? We’ve created The Ultimate Bond Movie Bracket to answer this question once and for all.
Each Monday through the month of March, the past week’s winners will be revealed and voting for the next round will open until a winner is crowned on Thursday, April 9th—opening night of the 25th installment in the franchise, No Time to Die.
Scroll to the bottom of this post to vote on the opening round matchups.
All 24 of the official Eon Productions Bond movies are represented in our bracket, which means the Casino Royale movie is the 2006 title starring Daniel Craig, not the 1967 movie produced outside of Eon Productions. The bracket is divided into four regions representing the iconic car brands driven by James Bond—Aston Martin, Lotus, BMW, Rolls-Royce. The movies are seeded within each region based on their worldwide box office gross, adjusted for inflation. The movie in each region that wins by the largest margin in Round 1 will receive a bye in Round 2.
