James Bond is back, for the 25th time. With the countdown to “No Time to Die,” the super spy’s latest film, under six months, it’s time for the marketing wheels begin to turn. And thankfully, for fans, that means we get the requisite array of character posters and teaser for the teaser. You know the drill.
The quick teaser doesn’t necessarily do much to get you amped up for the release of the film. But what the “No Time to Die” teaser does do well is teasing the trailer, which is what we’re all waiting for at this point. Luckily, we won’t have to wait long, as the clip is expected to drop tomorrow.
The film stars Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Ralph Fiennes, Rory Kinnear, Ana de Armas, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik, and Billy Magnussen. Cary Fukunaga directed the film, marking the first time that a non-British person has helmed a Bond film. But, as we know, he wasn’t the first choice.
Also of note, as is seen in the latest press notes about the film, the writer’s group that included five names has been reduced to four. Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Fukunaga, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge are all still listed as contributors to the script, but conspicuously absent is that of Scott Z. Burns. You have to imagine that somewhere along the way, his contributions were reduced quite a bit.
“No Time to Die” arrives in theaters on April 8, 2020. You can watch the teaser and look at all the character posters below.
Here’s the synopsis:
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.
