Bond is back in the new trailer for ‘No Time To Die’.
Betrayal! Intrigue! Explosions! Yes, it can only mean that James Bond is heading back to the big screen in a new romp called No Time To Die – although his return was delayed somewhat by the pandemic, with a new date of November 12 in the diary – and a new trailer dropped earlier today. The world has moved on from Bond, but there’s still a place for the grizzled old spy in the espionage game, as threats both new and old rear their heads… Don’t forget to nab your tickets here to see it!
Yes, there’s action and drama to pick through here. But first, a word on the title, as having ‘No Time To Die’ is as an apt a description for “being a millennial” as we’ve ever heard – so presumably, the chiding Bond gets for blowing his money on brunch instead of buying a house is elsewhere in the film?
Anyway, to the actual plot: Bond (Daniel Craig, in his fifth outing as the spy) is enjoying a tranquil retirement in Jamaica when his old CIA buddy Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) rocks up with a favour to ask. Whilst on the trail of a kidnapped scientist, Bond will have to confront old demons in the form of Blofeld (Christoph Waltz), deal with an apparent betrayal at the hands of old flame Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), work with a new 00 agent (Lashana Lynch), and hunt down a terrifying new adversary: the masked man billed as Safin (Rami Malek).
That’s before we even mention a reunion with Q (Ben Whishaw), a plea from M (Ralph Fiennes), and chilling proclamations from Safin about his plans for the future. Indeed, the tagline – “The mission that changes everything begins…” – is rather tantalising, perhaps hinting at the passing-the-torch vehicle No Time To Die is rumoured to be. For now, that’s about all we know, apart from the release date of November 12, 2020. As Bond says, “we all have our secrets”, and No Time To Die will be keeping its until then…
