The James Bond Film Collection is leaving Prime Video in June
James Bond fans may have to search for their DVDs again, as the entire catalog is set to leave Prime Video next month.
The streaming service has confirmed that the entire 25-film collection will only be available to stream for a limited time in April, and now it appears that time is up.
Almost all James Bond films will now leave Prime Video on June 14except for Daniel Craig’s last outing as Bond in No time to die.

The decision to stream the complete collection exclusively on the platform came after Amazon bought Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) for $8.45 billion in 2021.
Since April 15, fans have been able to revisit some of the franchise’s classics including Casino Royale, Goldfinger, Thunderball, and Diamonds are forever but only for a limited time. While the franchise may return to the streaming platform in the future, nothing has been confirmed yet.
After nearly 60 years of movies, the suave English spy has a distinct personality and it’s one that Bond screenwriter John Logan feared he would lose when MGM was acquired by the corporate giant.

“When I heard this news, a chill went through me,” he admitted, “Having worked as a writer on celestial fall and Spectrum, I know that Bond is not just another franchise, not a Marvel or a DC; it is a family business that has been carefully nurtured and led through changing times by the Broccoli/Wilson family.
“Working sessions on celestial fall and Spectrum were like warm discussions around the dinner table, with Barbara Broccoli and her half-brother Michael Wilson letting all the unruly kids do the talking.”
He continued: “Every crazy aunt or eccentric uncle had a voice. We discussed and debated and came to a resolution, as families should, with no outside voices in the room.
“Please let 007 drink his martinis in peace. Don’t shake him, don’t stir him.”
The most recent jaunt saw Daniel Craig’s Bond finally meet his death, which left fans divided. However, it also opened up the possibility of reinventing the long-running franchise with not only a new incoming Bond, but also a new direction for the movies.
Watch the entire James Bond movie collection on Amazon Prime Video through June 14.
