They’ve been working on the 25th James Bond movie for some time and finally it’s been confirmed it will be released here in Australia on the 8th April.
Daniel Craig stars again in the new film, called No Time to Die but it’s been said this will be his last stint as the infamous 007 agent so it will be interesting to see how the film plays out.
In interesting news, Rami Malek of Bohemian Rhapsody fame is playing the main Bond villain. Director, Cary Joji Fukunaga, has said: “We aimed to do something extraordinary with this one.” Take a look at this trailer about the making of the film below.
The story line for No Time To Die starts with Bond having left active service and he’s 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.
Theme song by Billie Eilish
You may have heard the theme song for No Time to Die will be performed by Billie Eilish. The 18-year-old wrote the title song with her elder brother, FINNEAS. This makes Billie Eilish the youngest artist in history to write and record a James Bond theme song.
Billie Eilish has been quoted as saying: “It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honour. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock”.
Her brother FINNEAS adds: “Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives. There is no more iconic pairing of music and cinema than the likes of Goldfinger and Live And Let Die. We feel so so lucky to play a small role in such a legendary franchise, long live 007.”
In reference to the film’s theme song, director Cary Joji Fukunaga said: “There are a chosen few who record a Bond theme. I am a huge fan of Billie and FINNEAS. Their creative integrity and talent are second to none and I cannot wait for audiences to hear what they’ve brought – a fresh new perspective whose vocals will echo for generations to come.”
