A second, more explosive trailer for the upcoming James Bond title No Time To Die has been released. In what will serve as Daniel Craig’s final outing as the iconic 007, the second promotional clip teases what is going to be an epic swan song for Craig’s tenure, which started way back in 2006 with Casino Royale, and has since spanned five films.
The trailer’s description for No Time To Die promises a “mission that changes everything”, as Daniel Craig comes head to head with not one, but two big villains. The first comes in the form of Rami Malek’s chilling Safin, a big bad who appears to share a mysterious connection to Bond’s love interest, Madeleine Swann, (Léa Seydoux). Malek’s motivations remain somewhat unclear, despite revenge being an indication. Either way, it can’t be good for Bond.
A notable face from the past is Christoph Waltz, who reprises his role as Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the former head of the now-defunct crime organization Spectre. Recurring cast members returning for this latest installment in the series include Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Ralph Fiennes’ M, and Ben Whishaw’s Q.
The film further stars Daniel Craig’s co-star from the 2019 film Knives Out, Ana De Armas, who plays a CIA agent who by the looks of things is a serious force to be reckoned with, as well as Westworld actor Jeffrey Wright, who is returning to his role as CIA agent Felix Leiter. Lashana Lynch will also be featured as Nomi, a brand-new 00 agent.
No Time To Die is due for release in cinemas on November 12, as it was delayed from its initial April 2020 release date due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film will be directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, best known for his writing work on 2017’s IT Chapter One, and his directorial work for HBO’S anthology series True Detective.
