The James Bond film series is a series of motion pictures based on the fictional character of MI6 agent James Bond (quote designation "007") appearing in the novels of Ian Fleming. Earlier films were based on Fleming's novels and short stories followed later by films with original storylines. The franchise remains one of the longest continually running film series in history having been in ongoing production from 1962 to 2010 with a six-year hiatus between 1989 and 1995. In that time EON Productions has produced 22 films at an average of about one every two years usually produced at Pinewood Studios. The films have grossed just over US$ 12 billion (in inflation adjusted dollars) at the worldwide box -host ban--host ban--host ban--host ban--host ban--host ban- making it easily the highest-grossing film series ever (well ahead of both Star Wars and Harry Potter which only appear ahead of Bond if inflation is ignored). In addition there are two independent productions and an American television adaptation of the first novel. Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman co-produced the EON films until 1975 when Broccoli became the sole producer. Since 1995 Broccoli's daughter Barbara and stepson Michael G. Wilson have co-produced them. Six actors have portrayed 007 in the EON series so far.
Broccoli's (and until 1975 Saltzman's) family company Danjaq has held ownership of the James Bond film series through EON and maintained co-ownership with United Artists since the mid-1970s. From the release of Dr. No (1962) up to For Your Eyes Only (1981) the films were distributed solely by UA. When Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer bought UA in 1981 MGM/UA Entertainment Co. was formed and distributed the films until 1995. MGM solely distributed three films from 1997 to 2002 after UA retired as a mainstream studio. From 2006 to present MGM and Columbia Pictures co-distribute the franchise as Columbia's parent company Sony Pictures Entertainment (in a consortium including Sony Comcast TPG Capital and Providence Equity Partners) bought MGM in 2005.
On November 3 2010 MGM filed for bankruptcy. The studio later emerged from that bankruptcy ensuring the resumption of the James Bond franchise with Columbia Pictures as co-production partner with Danjaq which along with now cousin company United Artists owns the franchise.
