Daniel Craig’s final excursion as James Bond is finally here. The 25th movie in the James Bond franchise, No Time to Die, is heading to the silver screen. The highly-anticipated spy film will see a retired James Bond (Daniel Craig) teaming up with a new 007 agent, Nomi (Lashana Lynch).
From what we’ve seen so far, No Time to Die is going to have all the usual ingredients of a Bond movie. There will be conspiracy, intrigue and fast cars. Not to mention the typical humor and a quite a lot of heart. Here’s the official synopsis from the movie website: “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.”
Well, so you’ve got one crazy villain with a preference for theatrics, a new MI6 agent whom Bond must uncomfortably align with, a love interest with dark secrets and an evil scheme that threatens millions of lives. Basically, it’s just another regular day at the office for James Bond.
Obviously, Daniel Craig will be the star of No Time to Die. Especially because this will be his last time playing the iconic spy, however, the cast is star-studded. Lashana Lynch also plays a lead character, appearing as Bond’s replacement at MI6. Besides them, the movie also stars Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Christoph Waltz and Ralph Fiennes.
No Time to Die was directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and written by Fukunaga, Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The movie was filmed in a number of locations around the world, including Italy, Jamaica, Norway, the Faroe Islands, and London. Production started off in Norway in March 2019. Principal photography officially began in Jamaica in April 2019. A number of shiny Aston Martin cars were used in the production, including their DB5, DBS Superleggera, and Valhalla models.
Production officially wrapped on October 25, 2019, at Pinewood Studios. Some additional filming was confirmed by Fukunaga on December 20, 2019.
No Time to Die’s theme song (of the same name) was performed by Billie Eilish. It was co-written and produced by her brother Finneas O’Connell. The song won the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards in March 2021. The film’s score was composed by Hans Zimmer and it was produced by Steve Mazzaro with Johnny Marr playing the guitar.
The 25th James Bond movie is scheduled to arrive in US theaters on October 8, 2021. No Time to Die’s world premiere will be held at the Royal Albert Hall in London on September 28 and will also been screened at the Zurich Film Festival on the same day.
No Time to Die is going to be a landmark movie for the Bond franchise and expectations are incredibly high.
