A new photo from No Time To Die, the next James Bond film, has been shared online.
It shows Ralph Fiennes as M and Daniel Craig as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007 having a conversation in front of London’s Hammersmith Bridge.
According to the caption on the photo, which was shared on the official 007 Instagram account, the scene was filmed one year ago, on 12 July, 2019. The new picture comes amid rumours the film may face another delay after already being pushed back from April to November due to coronavirus.
M is wearing an overcoat and clutching a newspaper in the new snap, while Bond wears a smart tailored suit, giving the impression of an unplanned or clandestine encounter.
The 25th James Bond film will find 007 retired from active service, but brought back into action by Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) who seeks his help in tracking down a missing scientist.
Daniel Craig, who will play Bond for the fifth and final time in No Time To Die, seems to be wearing the same clothes he wears in the publicity photo of him in front of Timothy Dalton’s classic Aston Martin V8 (below).
No Time To Die marks Fiennes’ third appearance as Bond’s boss M – real name Gareth Mallory – after joining the long-running spy series in 2012’s Skyfall.
The film, from Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios (MGM), and Universal Pictures International is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and stars Daniel Craig. Written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade (Spectre, Skyfall), Cary Joji Fukunaga, Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, The Bourne Ultimatum) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Killing Eve, Fleabag).
No Time To Die also stars Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Billy Magnussen, Ana de Armas, Rory Kinnear, David Dencik, Dali Benssalah with Jeffrey Wright and Ralph Fiennes and comes to cinemas on 12 November.
