Although it has yet to be given a title, the 24th James Bond film is edging ever closer to filming. The movie will see Daniel Craig return to play the titular spy for a fourth, and presumably, penultimate time, whilst director Sam Mendes is also back.
We owe thanks to Craig. Despite the Cheshire actor facing huge public backlash when cast in 2006, he has managed to rejuvenate the Hollywood franchise. So what are Craig’s definitive Bond moments?
The last instalment of James Bond, Skyfall, was nothing short of fantastic.

It is no secret that the studio, MGM, will be starting to look for new Bonds, so who is in with a chance?
