Following on the sharply-dressed heels of the teaser, and character posters boasting Daniel Craig in chunky knitwear that wouldn’t seem out of place in Knives Out, here’s the first full trailer for James Bond’s long-awaited 25th outing , No Time To Die. Our first look at the Spectre sequel includes pretty much what you expect and want from a Bond trailer – revealing new footage crammed with action, stunts, Craig in a variety of outfits, and glimpses of faces both familiar and new. Watch it below.
Beyond Craig’s fifth time playing Bond, the trailer shows off Lashana Lynch’s fellow double-0 agent Nomi, Ana de Armas’ Paloma, and, with the facial scars one sometimes sees on Bond villains, Rami Malek’s nefarious Safin. Quite what he’s up to remains a mystery for now, but he’s certainly got big plans. Oh, and Léa Seydoux’s Madeleine Swann, seems to have some secrets of her own. Does Bond have another Vesper Lynd situation on his hands?
That’s not all – as rumoured by early tabloid reports of Christoph Waltz on set, Blofeld is indeed back, eye injury and all, revealed to be a captive of MI6. He has a few words for our hero – and it seems likely to expect that he won’t remain in the clutches of British Intelligence for the whole film. Also back for this one are Ralph Fiennes’ M, Naomie Harris’ Moneypenny, and Ben Whishaw’s Q.
Director Cary Fukunaga, famously replacing Danny Boyle, looks set to put his stamp on the franchise, bringing considerable visual style to the world of Bond – and we’ll see how it all plays out when No Time To Die arrives in UK cinemas on 2 April 2020.
