The film's release will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the series, which began with Dr. No in 1962. Daniel Craig recently confessed he gets "a huge thrill" out of playing the suave secret service agent. "It's like a schoolboy thrill, you know," Daniel said. "That is about being an action hero on top of a train, which is, like I said, so far removed from who I am. But I'm getting to sort of live out a few fantasies."
