Excluding the controversial Casino Royale movies and Never Say Never Again, the data the team gathered showed 1,299 deaths total, with Bond taking out 352 of those. In a post at The Guardian, they’ve broken out the data in deaths per film and deaths per Bond. They also constructed an interactive guide illustrating the deaths per Bond, per movie, as well as highlighting the most unusual deaths. The screenshot below shows Pierce Brosnan’s Bond stats from the interactive guide — Brosnan was far and away the deadliest Bond, with 135 kills over four films.
The team’s data can be downloaded here. One Bond fan, Brendan Dawes, already has tinkered with the data and come up with a visualization of the deaths per movie, with a nod to the opening sequence from Dr. No, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year:
The first fatality of Skyfall can be chalked up even before the movie premieres — 007 has traded in his shaken, not stirred, vodka martini for a Heineken.
