Los Angeles: The new trailer for No Time To Die, Daniel Craig’s final outing as James Bond, was released on Thursday. Daniel risks his life in explosive as he faces off against villains and femme fatales during his final outing as secret agent James Bond.
The actor, looked brooding as ever in the trailer which sees him come to grips with villain Safin, portrayed by Rami Malek, who viewers are told is concocting a plan that could kill ‘millions’.
The nail-biting video opens with 007 narrowly avoiding being hit by a car before smashing into a wall as he embarks on one of his most dangerous missions yet. Set to the iconic Bond theme song, fans are re-introduced to villain Blofeld, played by Christoph Waltz, who sits in a cage in a prison cell. He tells Bond: ‘James, fate draws us back together and now your enemy is my enemy’, with the nemesis in question being none other than Safin. In the trailer, 007 is told of the danger Safin presents by Madeleine Swann, (Lea Seydoux) who tells him that he is after ‘revenge’ and her, suggesting her life will be in danger if his plans come to pass.
Fans of the franchise are also given a better look at CIA Agent Paloma (Ana De Armas) who Bond meets in Santiago and ’00’ agent Nomi (Lashana Lynch). Nomi is clearly a force to be reckoned with as Bond refers to her as a ‘disarming young woman’ after she attempts to shoot him.
Meanwhile, Paloma is seen scolding Bond for being late for his meeting with her before she fights off a group of men while wearing a black evening dress.
Safin appears to see a degree of similarity between himself and 007 as he is overheard eerily proclaiming: ‘James Bond, we both eradicate people to try and make the world a better place. I just want to be a little…tidier.’
Several action scenes follow as Bond and Nomi find themselves in a jet with him asking her: ‘Have you ever flown one of these before?’ to which she says: ‘Nope’. Bond is seen driving a motorcycle up a hill as he leaps above a crowd of pedestrians as he is heard saying: ‘If we don’t do this, there will be nothing left to save’.
The trailer’s exhilarating conclusion sees Bond armed with a gun in the woods as a truck drives full speed towards him before he manages to dive out of the way before firing at the driver.
The video’s tagline reads: ‘This November, the mission that changes everything begins’.
The 25th film in the franchise finds Bond after he has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica when his old friend Felix Leiter, played by Jeffrey Wright, from the CIA turns up asking for help. Leaving his seemingly happy live with Madeleine, Bond returns to the field to face Safin who is armed with a new dangerous technology that could impact the world.
And fans seem to love what they have seen so far. They took to social media shortly after the trailer was released.
