Of all the movies coming out this year, there are few that I’m as excited for as I am for No Time To Die.
Now, while I’m not necessarily a Bond fanatic or what have you, I will say that Skyfall is one of the best action movies released in the last 20 years. Plus, the mere ceremonial nature of Daniel Craig playing James Bond for the final time makes No Time To Die something of a cultural event — after all, Craig has played the legendary spy since 2006.
That said, I am vaguely concerned over No Time To Die‘s ultimate quality. Craig’s Bond films have been hitting at about a 50% clip and there’s no telling whether No Time To Die will fall on the good side of that coin (Casino Royale, Skyfall) or the bad (Quantum of Solace, Spectre).
Luckily, everything we’ve seen thus far — including this latest trailer featuring Christoph Waltz’s Blofeld — has trended in the right direction.
Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective), No Time To Die will see Daniel Craig portray famed MI6 secret agent 007 for the final time. In addition to Craig, No Time To Die also stars Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear, Jeffrey Wright, Léa Seydoux, Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch, Christoph Waltz, and Academy Award winner Rami Malek as the main antagonist.
No Time To Die will hit theaters in the United Kingdom on Thursday, April 2 before being released in the United States on Wednesday, April 8, 2020.
