Daniel Craig looks the archetypal Bond in the latest poster for No Time To Die, just unveiled on social media.

Busting the classic tux, bow-tie and Walther PPK pistol, the promo comes ahead of the final trailer for the 25th Bond movie, which is due to land on Thursday.

The movie is currently scheduled for release on 12 November in the UK, and then 20 November in the US.

This is bumped back a whole year from the original release date of 20 November, 2019.

That date was amended following the departure of Danny Boyle as the movie's director back in August 2018, which saw the movie first moved to February 2020, and then April 2020, once director Cary Fukunaga had been installed.

However, come March of this year, producers Eon elected to postpone the April release date to November, as the coronavirus pandemic began shuttering cinemas around the world.

The November release date is in fact rather more traditional for Bond films, with every movie since GoldenEye in 1995 having premiered in November.

With its moody theme recorded by Billie Eilish, the movie finds Craig's 007 out of active service and enjoying early retirement in Jamaica.

Meanwhile, Lea Seydoux is back as Dr. Madeleine Swann, with Christoph Waltz returning as Blofeld, Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Rory Kinnear as Tanner and Ralph Fiennes as M.
