Fans of one of cinema’s most popular franchises are gearing up for the the next instalment in the James Bond series.
Eon Productions will release No Time To Die, the 25th Bond film.
Separate production companies have also produced three other films.
After the film, Daniel Craig will step down as Bond. It will mark his fifth and last appearance as MI6 spy.
Craig takes over from Pierce Brosnan. Craig was first seen in Casino Royale back in 2006.
Although he is well-known for his criticisms of the role and its demands, Craig has enjoyed many perks.
Craig was made an honorary commander of the Royal Navy on 23 September, matching the rank of 007 spy that he has represented for 15 years.
There are already plenty of predictions for his successor.
When will No Time to Die come out?
No Time To Die will be released on 30 September in cinema’s across the UK.
Two days earlier, Craig and his co-stars will attend the Albert Hall’s world premiere. This will see Craig as well as producers Barbara Broccoli (and Michael G. Wilson) in their glad rags.
The film has faced three delays and was originally meant to be released in April 2020. The Covid-19 pandemic closed cinemas, so the film was delayed.
What can we expect from the film?
Fans of Fleabag and Killing Eve can expect an injection of hilarity in the series with the introduction of Phoebe Waller-Bridge to the writing staff.
Waller Bridge is skilled at balancing drama with laughter.
Daniel Craig told the Radio Times: “She’s got devilish humour. Her influence permeates a lot of this film. She walked that fantastic line of keeping it as a thriller and being very funny.
“But Phoebe didn’t come in to change Bond. She came in to spice it up for sure, but she’s a Bond fan – she wasn’t about to take him in a different direction.”
Léa Seydoux’s portrayal of Madeleine Swann will also stir interest.
The trailer shows that Bond’s love interest Swann is hiding a dangerous secret.
But will she betray Bond.
You can also expect the traditional list of fashionable cars, fancy suits, and cool gadgets.
Bond is seen in the trailer at the helm his trusty Aston Martin DB5.
Rami Malek’s Lyutsifer Saffin has assumed the role of super-villain.
He is a follower of Auric Goldfinger (Ettro Blofeld), Francisco Scaramanga (Evil) and Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
