With an official duration of 2:43, “Dying Can Wait”, in theaters next month, will be the longest-running film in the James Bond saga.
Many times postponed due to the global health crisis, Mourir Can Wait will be released in theaters on October 6. And the new James Bond can already boast a record: with an official duration of 2:43, Daniel Craig’s final mission is the longest film in the cult saga. The previous record was held by Specter, which posted a duration of 2:28.
Daniel Craig in Agent 007’s tuxedo rhymes with XXL format, the top 4 of the longest films of the saga being in fact trusted by the British actor with, behind Dying Can Wait and Specter, the presence of Casino Royale ( 2:24) and Skyfall (2:23). Funny detail: the shortest part is also a Bond worn by Craig, in this case Quantum of Solace and its duration, after all modest for this type of production, of 1h46.
To be complete on the question, we will indicate that the longest James Bond of Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan are respectively Never Never Again (2:17), Dangerously Yours (2:11), License to Kill (2:13) and Die another day (2:13). George Lazenby, if he played 007 only once, in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, will have benefited from a generous screen presence, the film being, with a duration of 2h20, the fifth longer of the franchise.
