No Time To Die featurette: Cary Joji Fukunaga on a villain that's "stronger than Spectre"

Has James Bond finally met his match in the forthcoming No Time To Die? Director Cary Joji Fukunaga implies this might be the case in a brand new behind the scenes video.

Daniel Craig bows out as 007 in the 25th Bond movie, which hits us this November. The new threat manifests in the form of Rami Malek's nefarious Safin, who shares a deadly connection with Bond's love interest Madeleine Swann (Lea Seydoux). In the trailer, it's clear that incarcerated former Spectre chief Blofeld (Christoph Waltz) knows exactly what the danger is.

However, Fukunaga says the menace posed by Safin is more overwhelming than Spectre in its entirety, reflecting a dangerously opaque new world from which Bond has removed himself. At the start of the movie, he's been retired from MI6 for several years, and only when he's summoned to locate a missing scientist does Bond re-enter active service. There, he also comes face to face with new 00 agent Nomi (Lashana Lynch), who is a clear challenge to the supremacy he's so far enjoyed.

Craig's final movie in the series promises all manner of topical tweaks and boundary-pushing action sequences, so check out the featurette to hear what Fukunaga has to say.

No Time To Die is released on the 12th of November. Let us know @Cineworld if you're planning to watch it.
