Daniel Craig thought he had wrapped up his tenure as James Bond with Spectre, but the actor says his final fifth outing as the British secret agent in No Time To Die allowed him to fully complete his 007 journey.
Nearly 60 years after the first Bond film Dr No premiered, cinema’s favourite spy, known for his love of fast cars and cool gadgets, returns in the highly-anticipated 25th Bond movie next week after an 18-month delay due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
Costing an estimated $200mn to produce, No Time To Die sees Bond come out of retirement from an idyllic life in Jamaica to help track down a new villain armed with lethal technology.
“I didn’t think that I was going to do another movie after Spectre. I genuinely thought that I was going to ... just pack it in,” Craig told Reuters. “But I’m so happy that I got the chance to come and do this one.
“And we tied up lots of loose ends.
“We’ve tried to tell one story with all my Bond movies. It’s like they’re all connected in some way and this one just sort of capped it off.”
Running at nearly three hours long, the film, directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, promises the usual Bond action, car chases and stunts in picturesque locations, including the cave dwellings of the southern Italian city of Matera.
After being postponed three times since its original April 2020 slot, No Time To Die holds its world premiere on Tuesday in London.
