We’re just over a month away from the release of one of 2020’s most important blockbusters with the 25th James Bons film, No Time To Die, and now in a brand new featurette director Cary Joji Fukunaga talks about the significance of Daniel Craig’s final performance as 007 James Bond.
Watch the full featurette below:
On his focus for No Time To Die, Joji Fukunaga said “as a writer and director for me it was essential to rediscover Bond. Where is he, after five years of retirement who has be become. He’s sort of a wounded animal struggling with his role as a double O. The world’s changed, the rules of engagement aren’t what they used to be, the rules of espionage darker in this era of asymmetric warfare.”
Joji Fukunaga’s initial description of No Time To Die paints an incredibly dark and savage action thriller and audiences are going to find their emotions stretched here as Bond as to fight through a considerable level of adversity.
The director also discussed the importance of Rami Malek’s uber villain Safin and just what his significance holds for the film and the character of Bond. “And now there’s someone new out there, more dangerous than anyone he’s ever encountered, and whoever they are is smarter and stronger than Spectre,” said Joji Fukunaga.
Joji Fukunaga promises an action film that is a pure ‘race’ and which will rocket forth with energy and adrenaline, and long time Bond fans will be in for an incredible rush in No Time To Die that culminates with everything that Bond has become and which is a true testament to power and presence of Daniel Craig.
No Time To Die will arrive in cinemas on April 9.
