The marketing push for No Time To Die, the 25th James Bond 007 movie, has started to kick in with just 3 months to go before its November 12th release, a new poster on Tuesday and a new trailer today starts what will be one of the biggest campaigns for a Bond movie, Daniel Craigs last.
The trailer gets going after a predictable first minute with Bond throwing himself off yet another high structure, it then starts to show a little promise without giving too much of the movie away, and as is standard with Bond movies trailers these days it shows off plenty of stunt work and it looks incredible.
The story as we know it has a retired Bond being approached by old friend Felix Leiter, played once again by Jeffrey Wright, to rid the word of a mysterious villain known simply as Safin, played by Rami Malek.
Daniel Craig looks as dishevelled as Bond as ever, and in what looks like a promising move, maybe he's sharing the spotlight this time, as we know Lea Seydoux is returning as Madeleine Swann who Bond ended up with at the end of SPECTRE and she gets good screentime, also as we know Bond has retired in this movie and Lashana Lynch looks fantastic as Bonds replacement, and is she his equal?
After the movie got its release date movie due to the COVID-19 pandemic we don't have long to wait now until we get to see Daniel Craigs last ever outing as Bond, hankies at the ready.

Danny Boyle has left as director of the next James Bond movie in an announcement today on the official James Bond Twitter page.
Daniel Craig is still set to play the British secret agent despite stating during the Spectre press circuit that he would be leaving, although this is due to be his last film in the role.
It is a real shame Boyle is leaving as his unique directing style would be good for the long running series, but this may be why he is leaving as producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have cited creative differences for his departure.
Maybe they should be looking to previous director Sam Mandes to come back one more time or look to Gurinder Chadha or Sarah Gavron to creatively change things.
Lets hope Boyle comes back in the future to direct a film in the long running series as his Bond would be a good movie.
Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig today announced that due to creative differences Danny Boyle has decided to no longer direct Bond 25. pic.twitter.com/0Thl116eAd— James Bond (@007) August 21, 2018
