The major 2020 reshuffle that arose in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic shifted all kinds of major blockbusters around – including No Time To Die, the latest (and fifth and final) outing for Daniel Craig as 007. But in the wake of Tenet’s international box office success, it seems the plan is still to release Bond’s next outing in November, after initially being pushed back from April – there’s a brand new (and, brace yourself, incredibly exciting) trailer which not only offers much more of Rami Malek’s Safin, Ana de Armas’ Paloma, and Lashana Lynch’s cool-as-all-hell new 00 agent Nomi, but also closes on a pointed note: ‘IN THEATRES NOVEMBER’. Watch it below.
Phew, doesn’t that look like the escapism we all need right now? There’s plenty of new footage to dig into here. Is that Christoph Waltz’s Blofeld claiming that new baddie Safin is also his enemy? Could Bond team up with the cat-stroking mega-baddie? Was that Ben Whishaw’s Q out in the field for once? And how about when de Armas’ Paloma kicks that dude in the chest? Away from all the action – which looks properly thrilling – there are also more hints of how personal this mission will be for Bond, although there’s no confirmation yet of those leaks and rumours (that you definitely shouldn’t seek out if you want your spoiler-powder dry).
Stay tuned for more information on when exactly No Time To Die will hit cinemas, as it seems it still intends to – it’s currently dated to arrive in the UK on 12 November, with a US launch on 20 November, though it seems cinemas might be opening at different rates and to different capacities as the pandemic rumbles on. Whenever it arrives, we’re ready: Bond, it’s good to have you back
