No Time To Die’s latest trailer promises “everything will change” for 007

Craig’s final outing will be the longest, most expensive Bond movie ever made.

Previously, the longest Bond movie was Spectre, which ran to 2 hours 28 minutes. It was also the most expensive Bond movie ever made, with a reported production budget of $245 million.

However, as we get closer to the 25th Bond movie, and Craig’s reportedly final outing under the 007 code-name, No Time To Die has broken both of those records, with The Hollywood Reporter discovering that the new movie’s budget is $250 million (before advertising and promotion), while Main On Sunday are reporting that it will be 2 hours 54 minutes long.

The plot for the movie is still being kept top secret, and the new Super Bowl teaser below doesn’t offer much new information, but does give some startling imagery, and the promise that the new movie will change everything for Bond.

What that means exactly is anyone’s guess, and while it does feel like the teaser is setting up Bond to officially pass on the 007 title to Lashana Lynch’s Nomi character, the producer of the Bond movies very recently explicitly said that Bond will “never be a woman“.

So… our best guess is that this movie will either kill off or retire Craig-as-Bond, and take a note from Marvel’s book and announce the next Bond actor in this movie. Or we could just be announcing our fantasies for the movie out loud.

Director Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) will soon be bringing his vision of Bond to the big screen, with Craig and Lynch supported by Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear, Jeffrey Wright, Léa Seydoux, and Christoph Waltz reprising their roles from previous films, with Rami Malek and Ana de Armas joining the cast.

No Time To Die will arrive in Irish cinemas on Thursday 2 April.
