James Bond star Daniel Craig blasts Amazon TV and says 'movies should not be watched on phones' for cinemas to survive

DANIEL Craig has blasted proposals to stream James Bond spin-offs, saying the franchise should remain on the silver screen.

The 007 star, 53, suggested Amazon’s plans could spell the end of cinema as an event.

The streaming giant has proposed spin-offs similar to the Marvel franchise, as it tries to complete a £7billion takeover of MGM Studios.

But Eon Productions, the British company that owns the Bond rights and created the film series, are against any changes.

Daniel, who played the spy for a fifth and final time in No Time To Die, said: “One of the greatest things that’s happened is we got this movie into the cinema.

"That’s where Bond movies should be.

“They don’t look so good on a phone. They look great on an Imax screen. It looks great on a 30ft screen. And they are family events. It gets the family out. As long as there’s event movies like this then cinema’s got a chance of surviving.”

Meanwhile, Daniel offered some words of advice to his yet-to-be-decided successor.

He said: “There’s a couple things I’d say. One is don’t be s***.

“I would say you have to grab it and make it your own.

“I hope I’ve left it in a good place and I hope the next person can just make it fly. It’s an amazing franchise. I still think there’s a lot of stories to tell.”
