The First Official Poster For The New Bond Movie Has Been Released
Universal Pictures has released the first official poster for the latest James Bond film, No Time To Die.
Posting the release on their Instagram account, the poster shows a typically sullen looking Craig as Bond in what will be his fifth and final outing as Britain’s most dangerous secret agent.
Wearing a black, shawl neck tuxedo, white shirt and navy bow tie, Craig appears to be emerging from a building, presumably having just done something top secret.
The film’s name, No Time To Die, is emblazoned over the top of Craig’s image in a retro-looking Futura font that recalls Bond’s Seventies heyday.
The film, which sees Bond having left active duty, pits the secret agent against a new villain, GQ cover star Rami Malek. Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Lea Seydoux and Jeffrey Wright all make a return.
Slated for release in April 2020, the twenty-fifth Bond film and the last to star Daniel Craig has been beset by problems. Original director Danny Boyle left the project last year over script differences with producer Barbara Broccoli and was replaced by Cary Fukanaga, the man behind True Detective. In the meantime, Phoebe Waller Bridge, star writer behind Killing Eve and Fleabag was brought in to help ‘modernise’ Bond. Filming also had to be halted after Craig injured his ankle while filming a sequence in Jamaica.
After resuming, the production visited Aviemore in Scotland, Sapri in southern Italy and Norway.
There’s also talk of the film featuring the Aston Martin Valhalla, which is about as cool a name for a car as we’ve ever seen.
Craig’s entry into the Bond universe was a shot in the arm for a spay franchise that was feeling the pressure to keep up with the Bourne and Mission Impossible franchises. He’s had hits and a couple of misses but we’re excited to see what they’ve done with his swan song.
