The mission that changes everything begins… #NoTimeToDie in cinemas this November. pic.twitter.com/nBP6aUrwDy — James Bond (@007) September 3, 2020 An action packed two minutes and 34 seconds, the video was posted to the official James Bond Twitter account with the caption: 'The mission that changes everything begins… #NoTimeToDie in cinemas this November.' From car chases, to glamorous assailants, romantic intrigue and far-flung destinations, the trailer looks to be quintessential Bond – with an added dose of modern style. Viewers get glimpses of the stellar cast including Rami Malek as villain Safin, Léa Seydoux as Swann – and of course, Daniel Craig reprising his role as Bond for a fifth and final time. It will also star Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw.

It reads: '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.'

Production of the next instalment met with a number of obstacles, including Danny Boyle leaving as director in 2018 (when Cary Joji Fukunaga stepped in), before the pandemic struck this year. There was much excitement, however, upon the news that Phoebe Waller-Bridge had been personally approached by Craig to work on the script, bringing her signature wit and feminist bite to the franchise.

It had been set to premiere in Monaco in April, with the UK release date now set for 12 November. It has been speculated that the Duke and Duchess of Sussexmay attend the glitzy Los Angeles premiere of the film, while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are thought to be appearing at the London screening. The final Daniel Craig James Bond movie, No Time To Die, finally has a new trailer. The movie, originally scheduled to release back in April 2020, looks like it's sticking to its revised release date of November 12 in the UK, and November 20 in the US. The new trailer has arrived just as theaters are starting to reopen in time for Christopher Nolan's Tenet. Like the first No Time To Die trailer, this is really long, and it feels like it peels back more plot than our first look at the movie. Set five years after the events of Spectre, Bond's new life with Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux) is brought to a halt with Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) reappears to source James' help. The movie's villain, Safin (Rami Malek), appears to have a past that intertwines with Swann's. This film also sees the introduction of Lashana Lynch's Nomi, a 00 agent who's clearly lighting a fire under the ageing 007. Ana de Armas, meanwhile, Craig's co-star from Knives Out, plays a CIA agent who helps Bond out. Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective season 1, Netflix's Maniac), this has a lot of promise after the bloated Spectre ended up feeling like a letdown. Maybe Bond movies don't benefit from being serialized? Not long until you can watch this, then, assuming the state of the world doesn't drastically change in the next couple of months – not to tempt fate. Remember movie trailers? It feels weird to be watching a new trailer for a blockbuster film that's releasing in theaters – simply because, DC FanDome aside, we haven't seen that many of them since cinemas closed earlier this year in response to the global pandemic. It's satisfying to enjoy a big new slice of a James Bond movie, knowing it'll actually be coming out in just a couple of months. Fingers crossed it's a fine finale to Craig's version of the character.
