After previously saying that he would rather "break this glass and slash my wrists" than reprise his role, actor Daniel Craig is officially back as the iconic James Bond in the 007 movie franchise. 

Craig will be back as James Bond for at least one more film, Craig confirmed on The Late Show Tuesday, which is slated to be released in November 2019. There had been rumors circulating that fellow British actors Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston or Damian Lewis were in talks to take over the role. 

London-based Eon Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer are the distributors of the film. Here's a brief look back at three of the highest-grossing Bond films.

Craig's turn as the British super spy has yielded the franchise's four highest-grossing films. 2012's Skyfall is the highest grossing, taking in more than $1.1 billion worldwide during its box office run.

Spectre, the most recent Bond film, did not match its predecessor's success at the box office but still managed to bring in $880 million at the global box office.

While MGM remains the Bond films' main distributor, the series was rebooted by Sony Pictures with the release of Casino Royale in 2006. The film went on to gross nearly $600 million during its box office run.
