Daniel Craig is making his return for what many predict to be the last time in the role of James Bond, in upcoming movie No Time To Die. Set for release in cinemas across the UK on November 12th, 2020 following a pushback due to the coronavirus pandemic, the movie will see stars such as Rami Malek and Lashana Lynch join the cast in extremely important and integral roles. You can check out the newly-released trailer for the action flick below:
With Bond leaving active service, the former secret agent was probably hoping to kick back and finally enjoy life, residing in Jamaica after dedicating years to protecting his country. That peace is fleeting however, as he's quickly pulled back into the chaotic world of shady dealings when visited by his old friend from the CIA, Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright), who requires his help.
Malek steps into the role of our latest villain; a man who is as mysterious as he is enigmatic, but also extremely dangerous with wild new technology at his disposal. With the destruction of millions of lives in mind, it's a race against time if Bond is to save the world all over again.
"We both eradicate people to make the world a better place," his character tells Bond. "I just want to be a little tidier."
Exactly why the villain has a scarred face hasn't yet been revealed, but it's something he at times covers up with a Japanese Kabuki mask; he's not a man afraid of some bold fashion choices.
We'll also see Lynch take on the mantle of 007, making history while doing so as the first on-screen female we've seen in the role. She's an agent who seems to be impressing Bond if the trailer is anything to go by, and could be a massive player in the future of the Bond universe and what filmmakers have planned for the future, following No Time To Die's release.
Speaking back in December to Empire, Lynch was asked about the conversation surrounding a black, female 007. She said: "I love that the conversation is even happening. And I think that's really exciting for long-running fans, new fans, but also young people that would potentially have that as not even an idea, as something that is just normal for them. That's really special for me."
Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga from a screenplay they wrote alongside Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the movie also stars Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Christoph Waltz and Ralph Fiennes.
No Time To Die will come to cinemas across the UK on November 12th, 2020.
