"Bond 25" Official Title Revealed

by

We’re going to keep this one short and sweet.

The official title for the twenty-fifth Bond installment is….NO TIME TO DIE. EON revealed the title in this 30-second promo featuring a spectral appearance of Agent 007.

In No Time To Die, Daniel Craig returns as our now 'retired' James Bond who is enjoying the tranquil life in Jamaica. Bond’s peace is short-lived however when old friend Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) turns up asking for help to rescue a kidnapped scientist. Turns out the mission is far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain (Rami Malek) armed with dangerous new technology.

Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge polished the screenplay (at Daniel Craig’s request) after exchanging hands from Bond veterans Neil Purvis and Robert Wade, and Bourne Ultimatum’s Scott Z. Burns. Waller-Bridge becomes only the second woman in the history of the franchise to receive a script credit following Johanna Harwood’s work on Dr. No and From Russia with Love. Which merits a ton of love outside our sheer excitement to see Waller-Bridge give “Bond 25” the love and care it deserves.

Cary Joji Fukunaga Directed with Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Léa Seydoux, Rory Kinnear, Ben Whishaw, Christoph Waltz, and Jeffrey Wright returning. Ana de Armas, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen, and Rami Malek join the cast.

No Time To Die is scheduled for release April 3, 2020, in the UK and April 8, 2020, in the U.S.
