The wait has been long for Bond, but it will be worth it. From the release date to the cast, here’s everything you need to know about ‘No Time To Die.’
James Bond is back for his 25th adventure in No Time To Die. After many obstacles, the James Bond film will hit theaters this year. Daniel Craig is back once again as the iconic character, along with new and familiar faces.
The official synopsis for No Time To Die reads, “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.”
No Time To Die is a sequel to the 2015 Bond film Spectre, which ended with Bond riding off with Dr. Madeleine Swann. However, as the No Time To Die trailer has shown us, they didn’t get their happily ever after. No Time To Die has an incredible cast, and Billie Eilish sings the movie’s theme song. Billie and her brother Finneas, who co-wrote and produced the track, won the 2021 Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media already for “No Time To Die.” From the release date to the theater situation, here’s what to know about the 25th Bond film.
When Will The Film Be Released?
No Time To Die will be released globally on October 8, 2021. When the film began production in April 2019, the 25th Bond film was set to be released on April 3, 2020. The film was delayed in March 2020 as COVID-19 became a global pandemic and theaters closed.
No Time To Die was initially delayed until November 2020. When October rolled around, the film was pushed back again until April 2, 2021, since many theaters around the world had yet to reopen, especially in major markets like New York City and Los Angeles.
Even though vaccines began to be available in December 2020, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic were still being felt globally. Theaters had yet to bounce back. No Time To Die’s release date was rescheduled a final time to October 8, 2021.
‘No Time To Die’ Cast
Daniel Craig is back as James Bond once again. After much uncertainty about whether he would return, Daniel decided to come back to the role one final time after appearing in 4 previous Bond films. He was “more involved in the writing” of No Time To Die than of the previous Bond films, according to GQ.
In his GQ profile, the actor made it clear that No Time To Die would be his final go-round as 007. “This is my last movie,” he said. “I’ve kept my mouth shut before and I’ve stayed out of it and I’ve respected it and I’ve regretted that I did.”
A number of other familiar characters are returning for No Time To Die along with Daniel, including Q (Ben Whishaw), M (Ralph Fiennes), Eve Moneypenny (Naomie Harris), Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright), Dr. Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Christoph Waltz), and Bill Tanner (Rory Kinnear).
No Time To Die will also feature many new faces. Oscar-winner Rami Malek is playing the movie’s villain, Lyutsifer Safin. Captain Marvel star Lashana Lynch will play Nomi, a new 00 agent. Knives Out breakout star Ana de Armas plays Paloma, a CIA agent who teams up with Bond. Billy Magnussen joins the cast as Logan Ash, a CIA agent who butts heads with Bond. Dali Benssalah plays Primo, a soldier and adversary Bond crosses paths with in Matera. David Dencik plays Valdo Obruchev, a scientist whose disappearance Bond investigates.
Cary Joji Fukunaga is directing the film. Danny Boyle was originally set to direct and co-write the screenplay with John Hodge, but they both left due to creative differences in 2018. Cary took over for Danny soon after. No Time To Die is written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns with Cary Joji Fukunaga and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Streaming Vs. Cinemas
No Time To Die will be coming out solely in theaters. Unlike Warner Bros. and Disney films in 2021, which are premiering simultaneously in theaters and on their streaming platforms, No Time To Die is being reserved for theaters only. The 25th Bond film has continued to be pushed back in hopes of the theater experience returning and the movie becoming a box office hit like the previous films.

Mark Wahlberg Honors Mom Alma After Her Death With Photo Of Her & His 4 Kids: ‘Miss You’
Mark Wahlberg paid tribute to his late mother, Alma Wahlberg, with a beautiful photo of her cuddling up with her grandchildren.
Gone, but not forgotten. Mark Wahlberg honored his mother, Ama Wahlberg on Instagram with a sweet photo two days after announcing the devastating news to his fans. The Transformers star, 49, posted a beautiful throwback of Ama sitting on a couch surrounded by his four adorable kids: Brendan, 12, Ella, 17, Grace, 11, and Michael, 15. Mark and his wife, Rhea Durham, are in on the cuddles, too.
He captioned the post, “Miss you grandma” with a red heart emoji. Mark announced 78-year-old Ama’s death in an April 18 tweet. The Daddy’s Home star posted a lovely photo of his mother with a huge smile on her face, captioning it, “My angel. Rest in peace.” Ama’s other children, including singer Donnie Wahlberg, also honored their mother online. Donnie, 51, penned a lengthy tribute on Instagram accompanied by a slideshow of photos and videos.
“I’m so blessed to have been brought into this world by, raised by, taught by and set on my life’s path by, such an amazing woman,” he wrote, in part. “My mom Alma’s joy for life, love and people — combined with a pride in her humble beginnings and refusal to forget where she came from — undoubtedly shaped me into the man that I am. She was, without a doubt, the most loving human being I’ve ever known.”
Ama was mother to nine children and was a regular fixture on Wahlburgers, the A&E reality show that followed the family’s Boston-based burger chain. The show, which aired from 2014 to 2019, showcased many members of the Wahlberg family, including son Paul Wahlberg — who later named another restaurant Alma Nova in her honor. “I was very hesitant and nervous at first,” Alma told USA Today in 2014 about being on the show. “[My sons] said, ‘You can talk to a wall, Ma. You won’t have any trouble.’”
Suri Cruise Sports Long Hair While Posing With Flowers & Goofing Off With Friends On 15th Birthday
Suri Cruise looked super sweet while enjoying her 15th birthday in the Big Apple! The teenager showed off her long hair and posed with some flowers as her friend snapped some pics!
Suri Cruise is another year older! The teenage daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise turned 15 years old on April 18, and she looked like she had a total blast on her big day. The newly minted 15-year-old spent her birthday out and about in New York City and was spotted having some low-key birthday fun. Suri and a few of her pals were seen snapping some photos together while posing with a pretty bouquet of pink and white carnations.
The birthday girl also showed off her long, brunette ‘do, and looked like the spitting image of her famous mom, 42. Naturally, Suri followed the necessary safety precautions while celebrating her birthday amid the COVID-19 pandemic. She and her friends wore protective face masks while having fun in the Big Apple. The teens only removed their face masks while smiling for a quick photo, or enjoying some delicious ice cream!
Despite her birthday falling during the middle of a pandemic, Suri truly showed the she was enjoying her day like so many around the world who celebrated their special days during COVID-19, as well. Suri’s mom, Katie, made sure to celebrate her daughter’s birthday by taking to Instagram and sharing a carousel of photos to her social media account. Far more precious than the intimate pics of Suri and her mom, however, was the sweet caption Katie wrote and dedicated to her teen.
“Happy 15th Birthday Sweetheart! I love you,” Katie wrote, adding a string of exclamation points and a number of emojis. “I can’t believe you are already 15!” Katie concluded the post. It’s hard to believe that Suri is already 15 years old. After all, it doesn’t seem like that long ago that she was just a tiny tot being photographed while out with her famous parents.
Over the course of the last few years, though, Suri’s adoring mom has made a concerted effort to offer her daughter as normal an upbringing as possible. Suri’s bond with her mom is so incredibly strong and it’s amazing to see the teen grow up to be her Katie’s mini-me. Fans cannot wait to see what the future holds for the teenager!
