One of the biggest talking points surrounding the Super Bowl every year is the sheer amount of new teaser trailers and spots for upcoming projects. This year was no different, with one of those films spotlighted being the latest in the James Bond franchise, “No Time to Die.”
Universal Pictures released a thirty-second spot that features new clips that had yet to be seen in the earlier trailer. It can be found below:
The plot synopsis from Universal Pictures accompanying the trailer reads:
“In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.”
More of Academy Award winner Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) is seen in the spot, as well as a whole host of the film’s star-studded ensemble. Golden Globe Nominee Daniel Craig (“Knives Out”) returns as the suave British spy for the fifth time, with Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes (“Schindler’s List”), Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz (“Django Unchained”), Academy Award nominee Naomie Harris (“Moonlight”), Golden Globe winner Ben Whishaw (“A Very English Scandal”) and Léa Seydoux also returning to the franchise. Malek isn’t the only new cast member, with Craig’s “Knives Out” co-star Ana de Armas featuring, as well as Lashana Lynch (“Captain Marvel”) and Golden Globe winner Jeffrey Wright (“Angels in America”).
Cary Joji Fukunaga has directed the latest installment, replacing Sam Mendes who had previously directed both “Skyfall” and “Spectre” in recent years. Hans Zimmer and Johnny Marr provide the score and the script has been penned by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Cary Joji Fukunaga, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Billie Eilish is set to provide the latest Bond song, which has been an Oscar magnet in recent years and may debut it at this year’s Academy Awards. Both Adele and Sam Smith won Academy Awards for their songs in “Skyfall” and “Spectre” respectively and Eilish will no doubt be the premature frontrunner in the category which has so often favored the Bond franchise.
“No Time to Die” from Universal Pictures hits U.S. theatres April 10, 2020.
