For a while, it looked like we had seen the last of Daniel Craig as the world’s most famous secret agent, James Bond. But when the dust cleared, Craig returned for the fifth and supposedly final time, for No Time to Die, the 25th entry in the James Bond franchise.
The film also features Ralph Fiennes, Léa Seydoux, Ana de Armas, Christoph Waltz, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright, and Ben Whishaw. Academy Award-winning actor Rami Malek will also star as a vicious new Bond villain called Safin.
No Time to Die trailer:
The news that Danny Boyle passed on directing Bond 25 bummed people out, but it looks like everything worked out in the end. No Time to Die landed another auteur director, Cary Joji Fukunaga.
Fukunaga’s distinctive style has influenced modern-day TV and cinema. His work on True Detective’s first season won him critical acclaim and a legion of diehard fans. The man can create tension and a haunting sense of atmosphere like nobody else in the business. And now, I’m fascinated to see how Fukunaga handles this series’ blockbuster movie spectacle. Based on the trailer, No Time to Die looks like the most thrilling Bond movie we’ve seen in a while.
No Time to Die synopsis:
In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. 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 arrives in theatres in April 2020.
