The title of the next James Bond movie was finally revealed last month, and now some official images have been released. The film is titled No Time To Die, and will be Daniel Craig’s fifth outing as the iconic British super-spy. It hits theaters in April 2020.
Before you get too excited, the new images aren’t actually shots from the film. They are publicity pictures of Craig, co-star Léa Seydoux, and director Cary Joji Fukunaga, on location in Matera, Italy. Frankly, Craig looks like he’d rather be anywhere but posing for these pictures, but it’s certainly a suitably glamorous-looking location for the next Bond movie. Check them out below:
Seydoux will reprise the role of Madeleine Swan from 2015’s Spectre, and will be joined by Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, and Naomie Harris as M, Q, and Miss Moneypenny respectively. The new cast members include Rami Malek in a villainous role, plus Billy Magnussen and Ana de Armas. No Time To Die releases on April 3, 2020–check out some on-set footage here.
The official synopsis was released last month. It reads: “In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is 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.”
In related news, former Bond actor Pierce Brosnan recently revealed he thought it was time for a woman to take over the role of 007. “I think we’ve watched the guys do it for the last 40 years,” he said. “Get out of the way, guys, and put a woman up there. I think it would be exhilarating; it would be exciting.”
