The Greatest Movie Adaptations of Books
Alexander Armstrong says, "The success of Ian Fleming’s creation, James Bond, is evident from not only his novels and short story collections but the continuation novels and spin-off works that have been released since his death." Daniel Craig currently plays Bond and his first outing in the role was in Casino Royale in 2006. This was based on Fleming’s debut Bond novel, published in 1953, that’s actually been adapted for the screen three times. Staying faithful to Fleming’s story while successfully reinventing the franchise, Casino Royale was the highest-grossing Bond film of all time – that is, until Skyfall came along.
