The 25th James Bond film No Time To Die will be one of the rescheduled blockbusters to premiere in 2021. No Time To Die is directed by Cary Fukunaga. The movie will be Daniel Craig’s final appearance as Bond.
Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
