JAMES BOND 007

Review: 'No Time to Die' is a Satisfying End to Daniel Craig's Bond Era

No Time To Die Review

It's the end of an era. After starring in 5 movies over the last 15 years, English actor Daniel Craig is done with James Bond. No Time To Die is Craig's final Bond outing, his swan song in many ways, as these 5 movies have connected with storylines playing out across each of them. And this final one wraps things up as best it can. Years ago when they rebooted with Casino Royale, Eon Productions decided to try making the new Bond movies with ongoing narratives. Almost every other movie before this era was just a standalone movie: Bond would go off on his important mission, take out the bad guy and save the day; everything would start fresh again with the next movie. Ever since Casino Royale in 2006, Bond has been dealing with the guilt and sadness of losing his great love, Vesper Lynd. And with this fifth movie, they've put themselves in a situation where they have to tie up all the loose ends and usher all these characters to a satisfying end point.

'No Time to Die' Featurette on New Agents Including Lashana Lynch

No Time to Die Featurette

"You get in my way, I will put a bullet in your knee." With just a few weeks before the world premiere, Eon Productions has dropped a new "featurette" for No Time to Die, the 25th Bond movie. The video focuses on two "New Agents" from MI6 introduced in this new Bond movie: Nomi, played by Lashana Lynch, and Paloma, played by Ana de Armas. We also featured two final trailers for No Time to Die a few weeks ago; it's still opening in October worldwide. When this movie begins, Bond has left active service. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous tech. The cast includes Jeffrey Wright as Felix, Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q; plus Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Billy Magnussen, Rory Kinnear, and David Dencik. I think it's crazy badass to see these two ladies in this new Bond movie! I just hope they get more than just a few minutes to shine. It's time for a female Bond.

Final Two Trailers for Bond Movie 'No Time to Die' with Daniel Craig

"Nothing can prepare you for the epic conclusion." Eon Productions has released a "final US trailer" for No Time to Die, the 25th Bond movie and the fifth movie starring Daniel Craig as Agent 007. We featured numerous trailers last year but after many delays the release date has been reset for October this fall. This final trailer wraps up Daniel Craig's Bond era much like a Marvel trailer. When No Time to Die begins, Bond has left active service. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous tech.

I really hope this one is worth the wait, but from the looks of it, it might just be. This looks epic indeed - and all the teases in this new trailer are quite intriguing. Bring on Daniel Craig Bond's finale.

"What I really wanted Safin was to make him unsettling… Thinking of himself as being heroic." Eon has released a 90-second promo trailer for the villain of No Time to Die, the 25th James Bond movie arriving this fall. Is the mysterious Safin 007’s most terrifying adversary yet? The trailer briefly examines Rami Malek as "Safin", and who he is, and how he might be one of Bond's most challenging nemeses. When No Time to Die begins, Bond has left active service.

"When her secret finds its way out, it'll be the death of him…" Universal has followed up with an extra international cut of the second official trailer for No Time to Die, the 25th Bond movie and the fifth movie starring Daniel Craig as Agent 007. The most recent trailer launched earlier in the week and it's awesome - this international version is a shorter cut with a few shots of new footage. And it's just as exciting as the other trailers.

Second Trailer for Cary Fukunaga's New Bond Movie 'No Time to Die'

No Time to Die Trailer

"You can imagine why I've come back to play." Universal & MGM have released the second official trailer for No Time to Die, the 25th Bond movie and the fifth movie starring Daniel Craig as Agent 007. The first trailer debuted last year (if you can believe it) because this was originally supposed to open in March, but Eon delayed it until November. So far they're sticking with that new release date. When No Time to Die begins, Bond has left active service. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new tech. The cast includes Jeffrey Wright as Felix, Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q; plus Rami Malek, Ana de Armas, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen, Rory Kinnear, and David Dencik. Yes this looks so awesome! I can't wait! So much incredible footage in this - I'm still confident they landed a very inspired choice getting Fukunaga for this final Daniel Craig film.

Watch: Daniel Craig's Full 7-Minute Heineken Anti-Bond Commercial

Daniel Craig Heineken

"I think you have my bag." Almost everyone has seen the Heineken ad that aired during the Super Bowl earlier this year, promoting No Time to Die and starring Daniel Craig as himself but also kind of, sort of as James Bond. The TV spot is a cut down version of a rather lovely 7-minute short film directed by Miles Jay, and it's now available to watch online in full. The story involves "Mr. Craig" losing his wallet and bag inside a taxi driven by a woman who is late to a party. He goes chasing after her, and ends up at the same beautiful castle where they bump into each other. I quite enjoyed this short because we get to see a different side of Craig. Now that he's done playing Bond after No Time to Die (which was delayed until November this fall) he seems to be distancing himself from the character, and showing how talented he is (e.g. Knives Out). The later moment with the woman in this is an especially great example of how soft he can be. Watch below.

Behind-the-Scenes with Director Cary Joji Fukunaga Making 'Bond 25'

No Time to Die Featurette

"What is that mission that will be he most challenging & most difficult?" Eon has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for No Time to Die, the 25th Bond movie and the fifth movie starring Daniel Craig as 007. The focus in this video is on director Cary Joji Fukunaga, one of the most inspired filmmakers they've chosen in this era to deliver Craig's final Bond movie. When No Time to Die begins, Bond has left active service. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter turns up asking for help, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology. The cast includes Jeffrey Wright as Felix, Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q; plus Rami Malek, Ana de Armas, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen, Rory Kinnear, and David Dencik. This is a beautifully-edited, exciting featurette that should get you in the mood for this Bond finale.

Badass New Super Bowl TV Spot for Cary Fukunaga's 'No Time to Die'

No Time to Die Super Bowl TV Spot

"When our secret finds its way out… it'll be the death of him." Universal & MGM debuted a new 30-second Super Bowl TV spot for No Time to Die, the 25th Bond movie and the fifth movie starring Daniel Craig as Agent 007. This follows up the first trailer from December, with another trailer expected in the next few weeks, too. When No Time to Die begins, Bond has left active service.

First Trailer for Cary Fukunaga's James Bond Movie 'No Time to Die'

No Time to Die Trailer

"So you're not dead?" Universal & MGM have released the first official trailer for No Time to Die, the 25th Bond movie and the fifth movie starring Daniel Craig as Agent 007. The last movie was Spectre (in 2015), and while it re-introduced Blofeld, it didn't leave Bond in the best spot. When No Time to Die begins, Bond has left active service. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology. The cast includes Jeffrey Wright as Felix, Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q; plus Rami Malek, Ana de Armas, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen, Rory Kinnear, and David Dencik. This Bond sequel has been in the works for a while, but I'm excited to see what Cary Fukunaga brings to the franchise and it looks awesome so far. I'm loving look and feel of this one.

Watch: Awesome Piz Gloria Tribute Video in Honor of Bond's 'OHMSS'

Piz Gloria Tribute

"Suppose I were to kill you for a thrill?" Don't mess with Theresa! One of my favorite Bond movies ever is On Her Majesty's Secret Service, the one-and-only movie with George Lazenby as Agent 007. Half of the movie takes place on top of a mountain named Schilthorn in Switzerland, where Blofeld's secret base is located. The summit is called Piz Gloria and it still exists - there's a restaurant and a viewing platform and small James Bond museum up there. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of OHMSS, promo studio Passions Fruit put together this awesome "Tribute to Piz Gloria". It's more of a tribute to the entire OHMSS movie, not only the mountain, but it's an exciting reminder of how memorable and enjoyable this Bond movie is. And it makes me want to get back to Switzerland soon. Bond locations are always the coolest.
