No Time To Die: New Bond Film Will Be Especially Emotional, Star Says
Rami Malek can't say much about his character, though.
The first trailer for the next James Bond movie, No Time To Die, was recently released, building up the hype for Bond's return after five years away. The cast and crew have all been sworn to a level of secrecy about the project, but in a new interview with Good Morning America, embedded below, we've gotten a few slim details about what to expect.
The video features stars Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, and Lashana Lynch, as well as director Cary Joji Fukunaga, and contains a lot of half-answers from actors who have obviously signed NDAs.
According to Craig, who infamously said right after filming Spectre that he'd rather "slash his wrists" than play Bond again, seems more at peace with the role now, saying of the film-making process on this one that the "biggest surprise was how much (he) enjoyed it." Malek, asked about the mask his character wears in the film, says "I can tell you nothing," but gave some minor insight into his villain: "it's a very formidable, nasty human being. I can't say much."
Lyshanna Lynch describes her character as a "00 agent," but interestingly stops short of referring to her as 007, despite reports suggesting that her character will have adopted the 007 title from Bond. It's clear that she cannot talk about any potential future she might or might not have with the franchise. She also says that Craig, who broke his ankle during filming, is her favorite Bond ever.
Asked to sum up the movie in one word, which most of the cast was unable to do, Malek takes the opportunity to offer several more words explaining why he thinks the film will stand out. "I'll say this: they're all incredibly memorable films, but this one's especially emotional, and significantly memorable for a number of reasons." He also praises Craig, turning to him and saying "you are as timeless as these films are."
Daniel Craig, for his part, manages to sum the film up in one word: "difficult."
No Time To Die releases in cinemas on April 2, 2020. Here's everything we know about the movie thus far.
