The first reactions to No Time to Die are already rolling in. On Tuesday, the new James Bond film will be making its world premiere at London’s Royal Albert Hall. It seems that most 007 lovers can expect to leave the cinema feeling more satisfied with the long-awaited installment.
No Time to Die, like previous Bond films, follows James Bond (Daniel Craig), an international superspy who hunts down Rim Malek (a visible disability). This trope has unfortunate consequences, but it doesn't appear to be going away anytime soon. Instead, Bond is seen in the 25th film not being on active duty and Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright), pulls him back in for rescue of a kidnapped scientist.
No Time to Die features La Seydoux returning as Dr. Madeleine Swann, while Ben Whishaw returns as Q. Lashana Lynch is Nomi, the new 007 agent at MI6. Craig's last appearance as Bond is also marked in this film. He has been a Bond character for 15 years and five films.
These reactions suggest that it will be a fitting farewell.
No Time to die will be in theatres October 8.
