No time to die - why we can’t wait for the latest Bond movie
Posted by SOCKSHOP
After being delayed twice (thanks for that pandemic!) we are finally getting to see ‘No Time to Die’, the 25th film in the James Bond franchise. Its original release date was back in April 2020, and now that current Bond Daniel Craig has now played the leading role for longer than any of his predecessors the pressure is on. Sadly, this is going to be the final adventure and farewell to our much loved 5th Bond, so everyone here at SOCKSHOP is preparing to be impressed.
It is safe to say that since it first appeared on our screens back in 1962, James Bond has become an institution, and no matter which actor is your favourite Bond, we are all keen to see what the next installment has to offer. So, we have put together all the intel we have about ‘No Time to Die’ which is due out in September 2021. From what we know already, you are sure to be shaken, not stirred. (like what we did there?)
The History of James Bond
Bond’s No Time to Die
What to expect from Bond’s No Time to Die?
Due to be released in the UK on 29th September 2021, Daniel Craig’s Bond finale is jam packed with all the action, adventure, and a star studded cast. His returning MI6 gang consists of Ralph Fiennes, Rory Kinnear, Ben Whishaw, and Naomie Harris. Evil mastermind Safin, will be played by Rami Malek who is most well-known for playing Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, and is one of the most anticipated roles of the movie.
*Spoiler alert* - you have been warned!
While we know that the film will be starting off with Bond relaxing in Jamaica following his Spectre adventures, he is called back on active service to assist in the location of a missing scientist. Once it turns out that the scientist has been abducted, Bond is soon hot on the trail. Based on the synopsis, we are also expecting a bit more information on the mysterious Madeleine Swann and her personal history.
Billie Eilish has provided the theme song for No Time to Die, and it is everything you would expect from a Eilish X Bond collab. With doomy lyrics and strings, and a dramatic final finish it is exactly what we want to hear from a Bond song. To make it even more impressive, Eilish has broken records as the youngest ever artist to record a theme song for the franchise.
Channel your inner Bond
Another reason we just can’t wait for the release of No Time to Die is because it offers us the perfect opportunity to celebrate everything Bond related!
