After a five-year-hiatus, guess who’s finally back? Mr Bond, James Bond.
The anticipated release of No Time To Die had to be postponed several times, but we’re happy to announce that the most elegant spy in the world will hit the big screen on the 3rd April 2020. By the way, No Time To Die marks the last Bond movie with Daniel Craig.
James Bond is enjoying his retirement from the service in Jamaica, but as you can imagine, not for long. His old friend from the CIA, Felix Leiter, appears asking for help. The new mission is to rescue a kidnapped scientist, which leads Bond to the über-villain Safin.
The theme song
The 007 Ouverture scenes are iconic. The theme song for No Time To Die is by Billie Eilish, the youngest musician ever to record a Bond song. She wrote, aged 18, the powerful song with her brother Finneas.
The big novelty that may shock die-hard fans is that No Time To Die has four strong women leading the plot. Another big surprise may come from some of Bond’s sartorial choices. Keep reading to know more about his new wardrobe.
Safin is played by Rami Malek, the Oscar-winning actor who portrayed Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rapsody. The mysterious villain that wears a mask to hide his scarred face is armed with dangerous new technology that could be the end of James Bond. According to the producer, “Safin is a nasty piece of work.”
The new Bond-Girl is the CIA agent Paloma, played by Cuba-born Ana de Armas, who's already worked with Craig in the movie Knives Out. Lashana Lynch is Nomi, the new holder of the secret agent number 007. By the way, many believe Lynch will replace Craig in the next movies. There is also Léa Seydoux, who is back as Madeleine Swann, the Bond-Girl from Spectre, putting an end to the disposable Bond Girls era.
What’s Bond driving?
In 007’s garage, the quintessentially Britsh Aston Martins, of course. James Bond drives an Aston Martin DB5 and a V8, but his supercar now is the futuristic The Valhalla. Besides Aston Martin, Daniel Craig will also appear on the wheels of a Land Rover Series III and the new Range Rover Sport SVR.
What's Bond wearing?
After decades sipping champagne and saving the world looking chic in perfectly-cut suits and black-ties, James Bond appears on the movie poster wearing a ribbed combat jumper with patches by N. Peal paired with cargo pants. But don not fret, the former 007 will still do most of his running and escaping from explosions in elegant - and totally unsuited-to-the job - Tom Ford suits and Crockett & Jones shoes. On his wrist, the new model of one of the top 10 luxury watches in 2019; a stainless steel Omega Seamaster.
