- Story Text: With a guest list made up of Oscar winners and British royalty, James Bond film "No Time To Die" finally held its delayed world premiere in London on Tuesday (September 28) in the city's most high profile red carpet since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Wet weather failed to dampen spirits as Daniel Craig, dressed in an eye-catching pink velvet dinner jacket, and co-stars including Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris reunited for the hotly anticipated movie, which cinema operators hope will bring audience numbers back to pre-pandemic levels.
"No Time To Die," the 25th Bond movie, has been delayed three times since its original April 2020 slot as movie theaters around the world were forced to shut their doors as well as impose audience number restrictions due to the pandemic.
The Universal Pictures and MGM film marks Craig's fifth and final outing as the suave British secret agent known for his love of fast cars and cool gadgets, wrapping up a 15-year tenure that began with 2006's "Casino Royale."
Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and costing an estimated $200 million to produce, "No Time To Die" sees Bond come out of retirement from an idyllic life in Jamaica to help track down a new villain, played by Oscar winner Rami Malek, armed with lethal technology.
It introduces new character Nomi, a 00 agent, played by Lynch.
Beginning its cinema rollout this week, it is among the most anticipated movies this autumn.
Among the premiere's guest list were Britain's Prince Charles and his son Prince William and their wives. As a thanks for their frontline work during the pandemic, health workers and members of the armed forces were also invited.
