New trailer coming Thursday!
“The Name’s Bond. James Bond”. Do you realize it has been five years since we last heard those iconic words? Although the delay isn’t as long as the one the franchise suffered between 1989s ‘Licence To Kill‘ and 1995s ‘Goldeneye‘ thanks to the legal problems surrounding the property, it is still far too long.
The new movie ‘No Time To Die‘ was due to hit screens back in April of this year but thanks to COVID-19, it was one of the first films to be pushed back until later this year. It is now scheduled to explode onto screens in November of this year and will be the final time Daniel Craig will be playing the world’s least secret, secret agent. The ongoing pandemic gave us all cause for concern that the film would again be postponed and a rumor did the rounds saying we could be looking at next summer for 007 to return. But today, we have been given what amounts to confirmation that the film will still open as scheduled this year.
A new poster for the movie has been unveiled, showing Craig as Bond one final time, all suave and sophisticated in his tuxedo clutching his trademark Walther PPK in his right hand. What makes the poster more exciting is the fact that the posters all display ‘November’ towards the bottom, almost certainly notifying the worlds’ cinemas that the film will open as scheduled. Grab a Vodka Martini and take a look:
Also, it has been confirmed that a brand new trailer for the film will be dropping this Thursday ahead of the release of the film. All eyes will be on the trailer to attempt to identify clues as to what to expect from 007s latest adventure. The film is shrouded in mystery and secrecy apart from rumors and guesswork by various publications and websites, some of which are completely outlandish but may yet contain a sand grain of truth in them and nothing more. But with a little over two months left to wait until all is revealed, the trailer will go some way in building up the anticipation for the movie. Billie Eilish‘s theme song to the film has already been released and hit number one in several countries way back at the start of the year before COVID-19 struck and I can see it getting a re-release ahead of November.
I’m waiting in anticipation for the film to open but I do ask the filmmakers to make sure of a few things ahead of release. First, make sure the Gunbarrel, the traditional opening to a Bond film is placed at the start instead of going down the ‘Casino Royale‘, ‘Quantum Of Solace‘ and ‘Skyfall‘ route and putting it at the end of the film instead. And second, make sure Hans Zimmer’s score is worthy of being a Bond soundtrack and contains Monty Norman’s theme throughout. From what I’ve heard so far, it seems like Zimmer has gone down the John Barry route and some of his music throws up echoes of Barry’s music from ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service‘. Could this be a prelude of what is to come once more in 007s private life? Time will tell.
‘No Time To Die‘ hits screens worldwide in November.
