Despite filming for a few months already, no title had been announced for the next James Bond film, which had been going by Bond 25 as its working title.
Well, MGM and Universal Pictures have now officially announced what the film will be titled: No Time to Die. Take a look at the official title promo released:
It’s a safe and familiar title to have for a Bond movie, in the vein of past 007 titles such as You Only Live Twice, Live and Let Die, Never Say Never Again, Tomorrow Never Dies, and Die Another Day.
No Time to Die will catch up with Daniel Craig’s Bond in Jamaica, enjoying a tranquil life after having left active service. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) 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.
There’s a big cast in this one, including Oscar winner Rami Malek as the villain, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Billy Magnussen, Ana de Armas, Rory Kinnear, David Dencik, Dali Benssalah, Ralph Fiennes and Christoph Waltz.
Cary Joji Fukunaga (Beasts of No Nation, True Detective) is directing the film from a screenplay he penned with Neal Purvis & Robert Wade (Spectre, Skyfall), Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, The Bourne Ultimatum) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Killing Eve, Fleabag).
No Time to Die will open in the UK on April 2, in the US on April 8, and arrives in Australia on April 9.
