A new behind-the-scenes featurette has arrived for upcoming Bond movie NO TIME TO DIE, which will mark Daniel Craig’s fifth and final time as the not-so-secret agent.
Director and co-writer Cary Joji Fukunaga (Beasts of No Nation, True Detective s1) narrates the video below, teasing what may be Bond’s most important mission yet. The film finds Bond retired and living in Jamaica. But he’s not the same, now something of “a wounded animal,” as Fukunaga calls him. Of course, he’s called back into action…
“Now there’s someone new out there. More dangerous than anyone he’s ever encountered,” Fukunaga says, referring to the mysterious new Bond villain, Safin, played by Oscar winner Rami Malek. “And whoever they are, is smarter and stronger than S.P.E.C.T.R.E.”
Sure, he’s talking about that organisation Bond uncovered in the previous film, but we’ll also take it as Fukunaga also subliminally saying that No Time to Die will be better than that lacklustre chapter.
Fukunaga also teases a final act that will find Bond really feeling the pressure, as those he cares about become targets. “From the moment he’s called to action to the end of the film, it’s a race, not only to save the world, but their lives.”
Fingers firmly crossed for No Time to Die, which features a cast that also includes Léa Seydoux, Ana de Armas, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Lashana Lynch, Jeffrey Wright, Christoph Waltz, and Ralph Fiennes, among others. In Australian cinemas April 8 and U.S. cinemas April 10.

In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter 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.
