It all started with the publication of one single novel. Ian Fleming's Casino Royale was released back in 1953 and sold more than 4,000 copies in the U.K. in less than a month. Back then, it was impossible to know how much of an impact a spy novel featuring James Bond would have, but it ended up changing pop culture forever. While the books found a lot of success and kept being published over the years, it wasn't the only medium where the franchise would shine.

The 007 movie series is one of the holy grails of cinema. James Bond's thrill-inducing missions have spanned over 62 years, 27 movies, and seven different actors taking on the iconic role. Best of all, there are no signs of the franchise stopping any time soon thanks to its popularity. But while we wait for official news on Bond 26, it's time to take a trip down history lane and take a look at all the steps needed to get here. Here are all 27 James Bond movies released so far and where to watch them.

1. Dr. No

Synopsis: In the film that launched the James Bond saga, Agent 007 (Sean Connery) battles mysterious Dr. No, a scientific genius bent on destroying the U.S. space program. As the countdown to disaster begins, Bond must go to Jamaica, where he encounters beautiful Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress), to confront a megalomaniacal villain in his massive island headquarters.

Dr. No is the very first 007 live-action movie to ever be made. Released on October 10, 1962, this iconic 007 adventure is helmed by Terence Young, and it features Sean Connery as the first-ever actor to take on the iconic role of James Bond (at least in a movie, that is). Besides, Ursula Andress won a Golden Globe for Most Promising Female Newcomer thanks to her amazing portrayal of Honey Ryder in Dr. No. If you want to see where it all started, then this film can't be missed.
