James Bond has been a beloved and memorable espionage icon for many decades, and now the 007 franchise will receive a new director for the upcoming Bond film Bond 25, Cary Joji Fukunaga. Here are the top five reasons why you should be excited about the new Fukunaga Bond film.

First American Bond Film Director

Most of the Bond films previously made were not directed by Americans. Fukunaga is the first American to direct a James Bond franchise film. Not only is this exciting, but it is groundbreaking because he also has the experience to render the film an entertaining experience while staying true to the source material.
