The first full trailer for the 25th James Bond movie, “No Time to Die,” drops Wednesday — and we got a look at some new footage of Daniel Craig in his final rodeo as 007 during NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.”
The quick teaser features some previously unseen footage, including a daring motorcycle stunt in which Bond careens up an ancient looking stone staircase and soars into the air in front of a congregation of people heading out of a church. Bond’s vintage Aston Martin has got an upgrade too in the form of two machine gun turrets popping out of the headlamps.
“No Time to Die” is Craig’s fifth and final entry in the franchise, and it finds Bond having left active service and 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.
Craig will face off against Best Actor Oscar winner Rami Malek as the film’s villain, and Christoph Waltz is also set to return as Blofeld as seen in “Spectre.” Dali Benssalah, Billy Magnussen, Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch and David Dencik are the newcomers to the cast that also includes Ralph Fiennes as MI6 head M, Ben Whishaw as the organization’s quartermaster Q, Naomie Harris as Bond’s assistant Moneypenny, Lea Seydoux as his former flame Dr. Madeleine Swann, Rory Kinnear as MI6 chief of staff Bill Tanner and Jeffrey Wright as Bond’s CIA counterpart Felix Leiter.
American filmmaker Cary Joji Fukunaga is taking over directing duties from Sam Mendes, and he’s working from a script that has Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns, Fukunaga and “Fleabag” star Phoebe Waller-Bridge all credited as writers.
“No Time to Die” opens in the U.K. on April 3, 2020 and on April 8 in the U.S. Watch the new teaser above, and check out the first trailer on Wednesday.
