The first trailer for upcoming James Bond film No Time To Die has arrived online – watch it below.
A short teaser was shared earlier this week, and the full trailer gives us a first look at Rami Malek as new villain Safin, and welcomes back Christoph Waltz as Blofeld.
Lashana Lynch is also, as many expected, confirmed to be a 00 agent in the film, amid speculation that she may become the first female Bond in the future. Watch the trailer below.
The synopsis for No Time To Die 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.”
The trailer comes after Craig officially confirmed that he’ll be stepping away from the iconic franchise when the film is released, having overtaken Roger Moore as the longest serving Bond in history.
He told German media: “Yes – in the future someone else has to do it.”
When asked if a future as a Bond director could instead be on the cards, he said: “For God’s sake, no. I want to come home, eat something and then go to bed. ‘If you’re a director, then at night you’re still with the producers, screenwriters, on the phone. And then after two hours of sleep, you have to go back up to the set. No thanks.”
No Time For Die will hit cinemas on April 2, 2020, directed by Cory Joji Fukunaga. Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge has also been working on the film’s script, after she was brought in to modernise the iconic spy.
“They were just looking for tweaks across a few of the characters and a few of the storylines,” Waller-Bridge said of being brought on board to “help out” and add “little spices” to the script.
Phoebe then stated her belief that “it doesn’t get cooler” than writing for a James Bond movie.
