'No Time to Die': Release date, spoilers and all about upcoming James Bond flick
Last we saw, Daniel Craig's James Bond and Dr Madeleine Swann (Lea Seydoux) were riding off into the sunset in his Aston Martin DB5 after the events of 'Spectre'. And just when we all thought that Bond had his spying days behind him, he is roped back to what he does best in 'No Time to Die' and in what will be Craig's final outing as the titular character. He will be up against a mysterious villain, who's armed with dangerous new technology and has kidnapped a scientist.
As vague as the description maybe now, it just sees Bond having two missions now, and from the hype that's generated, he just may have his hands full. The movie had quite a few pre-production setbacks, but it's almost here after a five-year hiatus and has opened in the UK to positive critical acclaim. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a whopping 89% and only time will tell if 'No Time to Die' is the best Bond film ever to be made.
