Bond 25: No Time To Die “a culmination of all that Bond has become”

February 26, 2020

Are you excited for Daniel Craig’s last kick at playing Agent 007? No Time To Die director Cary Joji Fukunaga posted a video online saying the 25th Bond movie is “a culmination of all that Bond has become”.

The movie (a retired 007 enjoying a quiet life in Jamaica) comes to theatres on April 3 ’20 and is set five years on from the events of Spectre.

Fukunaga said in a new behind-the-scenes video, “For me as a writer and a director, it was essential to rediscover Bond. Where is he? After five years of retirement, who has he become? [James Bond] is sort of a wounded animal, struggling with his role as a 00. The world has changed, the rules of engagement aren’t what they used to be, the rules of espionage are darker in this era of asymmetric warfare. The people close to Bond, those he considers to be family, are at great risk and now there is someone new out there, more dangerous than anyone he has ever encountered, and whoever they are is smarter and stronger than Spectre.”

Fukunaga went on to describe No Time To Die as “a culmination of all that Bond has become. It’s all that he’s seen, all the trauma, the loss. What is that mission, that will be his most challenging and his most difficult? That was our target. We aim to do something extraordinary with this one.”

No Time To Die‘s official synopsis says Bond’s newfound tranquillity 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.”

The obvious question, who do you think has played the best Bond?
