Daniel Craig is back for his Bond swan song.
"The past isn't dead."
An intense new trailer for the forthcoming Bond film No Time To Die has arrived. The explosive clip which can be streamed below sees Daniel Craig donning the iconic tux one last time as Agent 007. Earlier this summer, it was announced that the film will be released in the U.S. ahead of schedule on November 20, five days earlier than expected via MGM/Eon Productions. The new Bond premieres in the U.K. on November 12.
The film was originally slated to come out April 10, but was delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the shutdown of movie theaters around the globe.
In the new preview, we see Daniel Craig as James Bond taking care of business as usual. However, this time around, he's up against one of the most sinister villains the franchise has ever seen in Safin, played by Academy Award winner Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody, Mr. Robot).
“I will be making sure Mr. Bond doesn’t have an easy ride in this,” Malek stated in during an announcement for the film.
A press release that followed the film’s announcent went into greater detail about the film’s plot. “Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica,” the statement read. “His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.”
No Time To Die features a stellar cast surrounding Daniel Craig, who reprises his role as James Bond. Also set to return are Ralph Fiennes as M, Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomi Harris as Moneypenny, Lea Seydeoux as Madeleine, and Rory Kinnear as Tanner. Jeffrey Wright, who played Felix in previous Bond installments Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, is also coming back.
Fresh faces coming to the new film are Dali Benssalah, Ana de Armas, Billy Magnussen, Ana de Armas, David Dencik, and Lashana Lynch who recently appeared in Captain Marvel.
Emmy Award-winning director Cary Fukunaga (True Detective, Jane Eyre, Beasts of No Nation) helmed the project. Filming took place in Jaimaca, Norway, Italy, and at Pinewood Studios.
"Come on, Bond. Where the hell are you," says M (Ralph Fiennes) in the clip.
Oh, he's coming. We're damn sure of it.
