Daniel Craig’s final outing as James Bond, No Time To Die, is due to hit theaters in just over a month here in the US. Given the rescheduling that the entirety of this fall’s film slate has undergone, MGM has released a new trailer for the film to remind audiences that it’s still on the way.
The trailer takes a short stroll through memory lane, looking back on some of the moments from Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre that have led up to this fifth film.
And it looks like it’ll be a pretty epic finale for Craig. From the last couple of trailers, we know that he’s retired from the service, only to be pulled back in for one last job by M (Ralph Fiennes) to face a new threat: a villain named Safin (played by Rami Malek). He’s coming back into a whole new world, one where he and his compatriots are barely able to keep pace with the new technology and gadgets that their enemies have access to.
It looks as though Safin has some sort of new weapon that could threaten the entire world (possibly a biological weapon), and even those close to Bond have their secrets. Along the way, the trailer shows off some of the film’s hallmark action scenes.
The film’s been a while coming out: It was originally slated for a November 2019 release, but was eventually pushed back to April 2020 when the film’s original director, Danny Boyle, left early in its production and was replaced by True Detective‘s Cary Joji Fukunaga. With the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, MGM opted to move the film to a November 2020 release, only to push that back again when the virus resurged in the fall. In January, MGM set a new release date: September 30th in the UK and October 8th in the US, which it seems to still be holding to.
Also coming up for Bond fans? Apple will release a short documentary about Daniel Craig’s tenure as the character called Being James Bond, which will see him reflect back on his time in the franchise. That will be released to Apple TV + on September 7th.
