The first trailer for No Time to Die, the 25th official James Bond film, has been shared. It is widely expected to be the last film with Daniel Craig in the role as Bond and features Rami Malek as the villain Safin. The film is due out in America April 8, 2020 via United Artists/Universal. Watch the trailer below.

Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective, Beasts of No Nation) directed No Time to Die. Neil Purvis, Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge all worked on the script. The film finds Bond retired from active service and in a relationship with Dr. Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux, reprising her role from the last Bond film, 2015’s Spectre). His friend, CIA agent Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright), pulls him back into the spy world.

Also returning from Spectre are Ben Whishaw as Q, Ralph Fiennes as M, Rory Kinnear as Tanner, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, and Christoph Waltz as Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Joining the cast this time are Lashana Lynch as Nomi and Ana de Armas as Paloma.

Danny Boyle was originally going to direct No Time to Die, with a script by his regular collaborator John Hodge, but they left the project due to creative differences with the producers. Fukunaga is the first American director to direct an official Bond film.

This will be Craig’s fifth film as Bond, which is one more film than his predecessor in the role, Pierce Brosnan, and three more than the one before that, Timothy Dalton. Roger Moore holds the record of appearing in seven official Bond films, although original Bond Sean Connery appeared in six official films and one unofficial one (1983’s Never Say Never Again, essentially a Thunderball remake). George Lazenby only played Bond once, in 1969’s One Her Majesty’s Secret Service, although his film is considered by many to be one of the very best Bond films.

There’s no word yet on who will be singing the Bond theme this time. Sam Smith did the theme for Spectre, after a song by Radiohead was rejected, and Adele did the song for Skyfall, which was one of the best modern Bond films. Let’s hope No Time to Die gets close to matching the quality of Skyfall.
