James Bond has finally beaten his biggest nemesis, and it is not Doctor No, Goldfinger or all his evil villains, but a microscopic disease called coronavirus. A year and a half after its scheduled release date, postponed several times due to the pandemic, “No time to die” finally hits theatres. It is the latest from James Bond, a film that marks the farewell to Daniel Craig of the most famous secret agent in the world.
The time has not come to die, but, at least for Daniel Craig, it is now time to leave. “I am proud of the film that we have made and the previous films, and I am relieved that we are here, people can go to see it at the cinema, this was a dream a year ago. And, of course, a little sad because it is my last one, ”points out the actor in an interview with Efe.
Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the rest of the cast includes Ana de Armas, Ben Whishaw, Billy Magnussen, Christoph Waltz, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik, Jeffrey Wright, Lashana Lynch, Léa Seydoux, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Rami Malek, and Rory Kinnear.
The first-ever Bond film began with an opening worthy of the old days, developing its plot in Jamaica, where the splendid Ursula Andress came out of the ocean in one of the most famous scenes in all cinema. Now, however, 007 in Jamaica has retired after he left the service. While enjoying the climate and beaches, here comes the colleague and friend of all time, the CIA agent Felix Leiter. He again asks our myth for help, involving him in a series of breathtaking adventures between kidnappings, shootings and chases. So once again there seem to be all the ingredients to spend a nice afternoon in the virtual company of one of our favourite youth heroes.
The release date of the movie is 30th September 2021.
