Trailer for 25th James Bond film No Time To Die dropped today

A teaser newest James Bond film, No Time To Die, was released Wednesday morning. The two-and-a-half minute trailer reveals Daniel Craig’s performance as the fictional MI6 agent returning to active service following the events of Spectre (2015).

With the leader of Spectre locked up, Bond faces a new adversary, one the likes he’s never encountered before. Enlisting the help of CIA partner Felix Leiter, Bond must keep moving, but finds that those he knows harbour some dangerous secrets. Of course the legendary Aston Martin DB5, fitted with all of Q branch’s standard armaments, makes a return.

Joining Craig on-screen are Léa Seydoux (Madeline Swann), Rami Malik (Sofin), Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q), Jeffrey Wright (Felix Leiter), Christoph Waltz (Ernst Stavro Blofeld), Ana de Armas (Paloma), Lashana Lynch (Nomi), and David Dencik (Waldo).

No Time To Die, directed by Cary Fukunaga, will hit Canadian theatres April 2020.
