New James Bond film title 'No Time To Die'

13 Comments

The new James Bond film finally has a title - "No Time to Die" - and an April 2020 release date, producers announced on Tuesday.

"Daniel Craig returns as James Bond, 007 in… NO TIME TO DIE. Out in the UK on 3 April 2020 and 8 April 2020 in the US," according to a brief posting on the official 007 Twitter account.

Filming for the new movie, previously known only as Bond 25, got under way in Jamaica in April when producers announced that Oscar winner Rami Malek will play the villain in latest entry in lucrative British spy franchise.

Craig confirmed in 2017 that he would return for a fifth time as secret agent 007.

Producers said on Tuesday that the new film would see Bond enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica after leaving active service before an old friend, Felix Leiter, from the CIA, turns up asking for help.

Bond embarks on a mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist, which puts him on the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology, they added.

"No Time to Die" was initially expected to arrive in movie theaters in November 2019 but that date was pushed back to 2020 after Britain's Danny Boyle pulled out as director and was replaced by American Cary Joji Fukunaga.

The film is also being shot in London, Italy and Norway and actors reprising their roles will include Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and Ben Whishaw as Q.

The Bond franchise is one of the movie world's most lucrative with 2015's "Spectre" raking in $880 million at the box office worldwide, while "Skyfall" in 2012 grossed more than$1 billion globally.

Daniel Craig said he would rather slash his wrists than make another bond movie, they must have dangled a very big carrott infront of him...... 2 minutes later and a google search yup it was 25 million dollars plus a slice of the pie, making hime the highest paid actor. Well done Mr Craig.

That should be interesting, I hope they dwell on that for a good 15-20 minutes before getting into the violence and killing. They won't though, of course, we'll be lucky to get 10 minutes of that, lol.

"No Time To Die"

I guess there won't be any Klingons in this movie then. Whoops, wrong series!

She is a great Moneypenny. Also was great as Tia Dalma in Pirates of the Caribbean 2:

"Davy Jones cannot make port. Cannot step on land but once every ten years. Land is where you are safe, Jack Sparrow, and so you will carry land with you."

( hands Sparrow a jar of dirt )

"...Dirt. This is a jar of dirt."

"Yes."

"Is the jar of dirt going to help?"

"If you don't want it, give it back."

"No."

"Then it helps."
