Ahead of this year’s deluge of movie releases, MGM came out with a trailer for Daniel Craig’s fifth attempt at the James Bond franchise: No time to diescheduled for April 2020. As far as we can tell, this 2.5-minute clip certainly looks like 007 material, with car chases, world-traveling action, and hints that no one can be trusted.
As to be expected from Bond movies, this one sees everyone poking around in Aston Martin cars. The iconic DB5 takes center stage in a chase scene that bookends both halves of the trailer, clearly bolstered to withstand a ridiculous amount of bullets. It also includes a very Bond-esque tweak: a mechanism in the headlights that can cycle the light bulbs out and a couple of Gatling pistols inside. Couple that update with Bond’s driving skills in a parking lot and you’ve got yourself quite the 360-degree turret. (Take that, Mandalorian.)
We also see new Bond series co-star Lashana Lynch roll into town in a DB11, bringing Ars auto editor Jonathan Gitlin with personal experience, along with an elusive Aston Martin model that Craig reveals through quickly pull on a cover. That model definitely has an 80s vibe to it, and we’re looking forward to seeing that car drive really fast in the April 2020 movie.
The rest of the trailer follows the usual Bond tease route of setting up a pair of apparent villains (the returning Christoph Waltz, a brand new Rami Malek) and a tangled love interest – in this case Léa Seydoux (Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol† Death Stranding), returning to the Craig-as-Bond universe after 2015 Ghost† For more on what we can say about these actors from the new series, along with more bangs, thumps, and thumps from the trailer, check out the captioned gallery above, or watch the trailer itself below.
