No Time To Die Will Be James Bond’s Longest Film To Date
No Time To Die which hits screens on April 2 will see Daniel Craig play the iconic role for the last time
No amount of James Bond action can ever be enough for the fans of the franchise and with so the 25th movie of the franchise coming out, where Daniel Craig plays 007 for the last time, cinema-goers are dying for it to release at the earliest. Directed by Cary Fukanaga, the movie will see, for the first time, Bond’s emotional side as well as the always-promised and perfectly-delivered action sequences. The April 2 release meanwhile has an extra bonus for the Bond fans. The movie will be the longest James Bond movie ever with a run time of two hours and 43 minutes, beating Spectre, which ran through 148 minutes.
The movie was supposed to be longer than usual because it promises to end the James Bond series, featuring Craig, on a high note. And to do that, any movie needs breathing time to unveil the plot and to give ample time to each character. Examples could be extracted from the Avengers: Endgame as it followed a longer duration than the usual movie and ended up being the highest-grossing movie ever. Meanwhile, one movie which did not follow this strategy, Stars Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, failed in more than one way and things didn’t go smoothly for it.
Fukunaga directs No Time to Die from a script he co-wrote with Neal Purvis and Robert Wade with additional work from Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Craig is joined by Ana de Armas, Lea Seydoux, Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch, Christoph Waltz, Naomie Harris, and Ben Whishaw. And if such a star cast was not enough, the theme song of No Time to Die was sung by American singer-songwriter and multiple award-winner, including a Grammy, Billie Eilish. The plot of the movie will revolve around Bond coming out of retirement on the request of old friend Felix Leiter to rescue a scientist.
