After last year’s first full trailer, James Bond fans were treated last night to a surprise thirty-second spot at the Super Bowl. While some of the footage was from the original, the new look at No Time To Die featured exciting new scenes and dialogue. The teaser opened with Daniel Craig’s Bond and Lashana Lynch’s Nomi sitting in a small aircraft before being launched out of another.
Bond casually asks: “You ever flown one of these things before?”
Before Nomi replies: “Nope.”
Other new shots see Bond underwater, firing a machine gun while wearing a tuxedo in Cuba and Lea Seydoux’s Madeleine Swann wrestling with her demons.
Additionally, 007 looking shocked while on the phone, Rami Malek’s Safin pointing a gun, Blofeld in prison, M at work and Bond in the villain’s lair reading to fire.
Eagle-eyed fans will also have spotted a portrait of Judi Dench’s M, who died at the end of Skyfall
While dialogue wise we heard Safin saying, “This was your choice”, perhaps referring to whatever Swann secret is.
One theory of what that secret is, its that she helped Safin to cheat death.
Just consider the villain’s words to Bond in the first trailer.
Meanwhile, Swann grew up to be a psychologist at the Austrian Hoffler Klinik – so did he recruit her?
Is it possible her skills reach further into the area of genetics? After all, “genetic warfare” is rumoured to be part of the plot.
So just how is Safin playing God? At this stage, we reckon he’s seeking immortality somehow.
In a recent interview, Q star Ben Whishaw admitted the No Time To Die shoot was “chaotic”.
Speaking with Collider on Fukunaga’s direction of No Time To Die, Whishaw said: “It was great.
“And you know what was amazing is that he treated it, or was able to approach it, it felt to me almost as if it were an independent film.
“You know? And it was quite improvisational … we didn’t do many takes. It was very light. Sometimes quite chaotic, but I’m very excited to see how he’s constructed the final film.”
No Time To Die is released in UK cinemas on April 2, 2020.
