The new installment of agent 007 No Time to Die is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated films of the year, and fans of this franchise are getting closer and closer to enjoying it.
James Bond returns with his film No Time to Die and Daniel Craig returns to play the legendary British spy, thus making his fifth consecutive appearance in this saga.
After rumors that the British actor would not play Bond in a new installment, the parties finally reached an agreement with Craig in which the money helped him make the difficult decision. This relationship between the producer and the actor is undoubtedly a win-win, since the renewal of the actor for a last film is a bet with as little risk as practicing online roulette without money.
No Time to Die chronicles the events after the previous Specter installment, in which Bond enjoys a quiet life in Jamaica after retiring from active duty, until his partner and CIA agent, Felix Leiter (again played by Jeffrey Wright ), asks for your help in the rescue mission of a kidnapped scientist. The mission gets complicated after Bond follows the trail of a mysterious villain, who turns out to be armed with highly dangerous technology.
Returning in their previous roles are actors such as Ralph Fiennes (M), head of MI6 and Bond's commanding officer, Léa Seydoux (Madeleine Swann), Bond's love interest and ally in the mission of the previous feature film Specter, Ben Wishaw (Q), MI6 equipment engineer Naomi Harris (Moneypenny), M's assistant and Bond ally, the return of the villain from the previous installment played by Cristoph Waltz (Ernst Stavro Blofeld), among others. Spanish-Cuban actress Ana de Armas (Paloma), a CIA agent who could be the new Bond Girl, makes her debut in the franchise, stealing the limelight and playing Bond's new adversary, Oscar winner Rami Malek (Safin) .
Cary Fukunaga (True Detective, Beasts of No Nation) was directing after award-winning director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) left the project due to “creative differences” with the production team. The script for the film was written by legendary screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who have worked on this section on all James Bond productions since 1999. Famous composer Hans Zimmer is in charge of the film's soundtrack and singer Billie Ellish composed and performed the film's title track of the same name.
Filming of No Time to Die took place in real locations in Jamaica, Norway and Italy. Most of the scenes were shot in London, mainly at Pinewood Studios, including a small town on the outskirts of the British capital.
The production of the new James Bond film did not start in the best way, as it has suffered various setbacks that have delayed its release. The extensive advertising spending by the production company and the current confinement situation only brings bad news for the fans of the film, since its premiere will continue to be postponed until further notice.
Although No Time to Die was planned to premiere in April 2020, the global pandemic forced the release dates to be delayed. No Time to Die could hit theaters on November 25, although rumors say it will likely suffer another delay and will premiere in the summer of 2021.
Future of Agent 007
Daniel Craig has confirmed that No Time to Die will be his last appearance in the franchise, after having made one of the best interpretations of the character throughout its history. The 52-year-old actor, who claimed not to be physically fit to continue with this character, began this journey in 2006 when he starred in Casino Royale, then titles such as Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Specter respectively followed.
There is much talk of Idris Elba as a possible replacement for Craig to play 007, although it must be said that there is also talk of a woman for the leading role in the following films in the franchise. In No Time to Die, actress Lashana Lynch (Nomi) plays an MI6 agent who was commissioned after Bond's retirement, so we have to wait for how the story of this character unfolds and the reception of the public throughout of the movie.
No time to die is the most anticipated film by fans in the last decade, since they have had to wait almost five years since the premiere of the previous installment (Specter) to be able to say goodbye to the character of Craig. This has led to increasingly interesting rumors about the history that will involve 007 in this film.
Although little is known about the plot of this film provisionally called Bond 25, a name given for being the 25th feature film in the saga of the famous secret agent, without a doubt, it will be a conclusion (satisfactory or not) of the adventures of the character played by Daniel Craig. Despite the fan theories, everything indicates that a renewal will be applied to this mythical character in the new installments that will be made without Craig.
