At last, he comes.
Bond. James Bond, that is.
Indeed, Daniel Craig’s reported final go as 007, No Time to Die, is finally coming out, in spite of the COVID of it all, in theaters (and only in theaters), on Oct. 8.
Directed by Emmy winner Cary Joji Fukunaga (HBO’s True Detective), the long-awaited 25th entry of the franchise zeroes in on a Bond out of active service and into that good tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace, however, is disturbed, when his old CIA friend, Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) turns up asking for an assist. The mission, to rescue a kidnapped scientist, turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, pushing Bond onto the trail of Safin (Emmy and Oscar winner Rami Malek), a mysterious terrorist armed with a dangerous new tech and a thirst for revenge.
SPECTRE’s Léa Seydoux will be back as Dr. Madeleine Swann, as will that movie’s main antagonist, Blofeld, as portrayed by Christoph Waltz, while newcomers Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel) and Knives Out’s Ana de Armas will join franchise vets Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, and Ralph Fiennes in on the action.
One a related, MGM is also releasing Being James Bond, a special 45-minute retrospective in which Craig candidly reflects, in conversation with 007 producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, on his 15-year adventure as James Bond.
The doc will be available to stream exclusively on the Apple TV app as a free rental worldwide, from Sept. 7 to Oct. 7.
