Both a US and international trailer were released ahead of the latest instalment in the iconic 007 spy franchise.
Two final trailers for No Time To Die were released ahead of of Daniel Craig’s final appearance as James Bond.
The trailers also reveal a concrete release date for the film, which is due to arrive on September 30th. It will be released in the US on October 8th. The US trailer includes a montage of Daniel Craig suited up in the secret agent role over the years.
The international trailer is dedicated to establishing the plot of the film, and introduces new characters like 00 agent Nomi played by Lashana Lynch and Rami Malek’s villain, Safin.
A synopsis for the film, directed by True Detective’s Cary Joji Fukunaga, reads:
"Five years after the capture of Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Christoph Waltz), James Bond has left active service. He is approached by his friend and CIA officer Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright), who enlists his help in the search for Valdo Obruchev (David Dencik), a missing scientist. When it becomes apparent that Obruchev has been abducted, Bond must confront a villain whose schemes could see the death of millions."
Some familiar faces are also visible in the trailer, with Ralph Fiennes returning as M, Ben Whishaw reprising his role as Q and Naomie Harris starring as Eve Moneypenny. Léa Seydoux plays Dr. Madeleine Swan again, and Knives Out star Ana de Armas joins the star-studded cast.
It appeared as if Craig played Bond for the last time in 2015's Spectre, before committing to No Time To Die. It remains unclear who will replace Craig, but Tom Hardy and Idris Elba have been touted as potential replacements.
Fukunaga met with the film’s producer Barbara Broccoli before he was chosen as director, before Craig signed on. They
“Two years ago I took Barbara to my favourite Japanese restaurant in New York,” he told Total Film. “I tried to wine and dine her.
“We spit-balled all the potential new Bonds – that was exciting. I just told her what I loved about Bond and what it meant to me growing up. And just that I’d be honoured if they’d consider me for the next one.”
No Time To Die finally arrives after 18 months of pandemic-related delays. The 25th instalment of the MI6 agent' adventures is set for its premiere on September 28th in the Royal Albert Hall.
