In Theaters November 9
The month James Bond first hit the screen, October 1962, Kennedy and Khrushchev were tangling over missiles in Cuba. Fifty years, nine U.S. Presidents and no Soviet Union later, Bond soldiers on in the world’s longest-lived film series. Daniel Craig, the sixth and most ripped 007, returns to battle another supervillain (Javier Bardem) and shore up the tattered reputation of his boss M (Judi Dench). But that’s just the plot. Bond’s meta-challenge: to seem relevant to young fans of the big-budget action genre he basically invented.
