The final Bond film for Daniel Craig, who has been praised for his outstanding performance as the British spy, is also the 25th in the popular franchise. James Bond has left active service after the capture of Blofeld and is attempting to enjoy a quiet, tranquil life in Jamaica. But when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for his help, Bond is unable to refuse. After looking into the disappearance of a missing scientist named Valdo Obruchev, Bond soon discovers that the man has been kidnapped. This leads Bond onto a trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous technology, the likes of which the world has never seen before.

One of the several additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe this year, Black Widow is a gripping spy thriller set after the events of Captain America: Civil War. The film touches on the origins of Natasha Romanoff, better known as the superhero-spy Black Widow. Raised in a Russian government facility as a child to become a trained spy and assassin, we are re-introduced to Natasha as she is on the run from the US Army, before she's suddenly attacked by a seemingly unstoppable foe. The film explores the concept of family and the responsibilities we have for those around us.
