This Bond movie could be different

James Bond came on the scene in the 1960s and captured the imagination of viewers. The 007 Movies were action-packed. There were eye-catching surroundings and locales with beauties to add to the glamor quotient.

Moreover, there were gadgets aplenty created especially for the use of super spy. Over the years, these gadgets kept pace with the times and the fans came to love the MI6 operator who could defeat any adversary. In 2015, he indicated his desire to leave after “Spectre” but he agreed for one more, which is now in the pipeline.

News18 goes on to add that Daniel Craig had to undergo surgery for an ankle injury. He fell while he was engaged in filming in Jamaica in May. However, the work on the film continued in his absence and he is now back.

In July, he was in London’s Southbank with one of his co-stars. Cary Joji Fukunaga is the director of this, the 25th film, “No Time to Die.” He is new to this franchise and will have to prove his worth.

The theme of life and death in Bond movies

According to Esquire, the theme of life and death has appeared in a number of James Bond movies. “No Time to Die” is the 25th movie featuring James Bond aka 007 and “You Only Live Twice” of 1967 was the first to introduce the concept of mortality in its title. Subsequently, six of the super spy’s movies used words like life, death, or killing in the title.

This logic makes sense because these are at the core of each Bond movie. The six movies are “You Only Live Twice” (1967), “Live and Let Die” (1973), “Licence to Kill” (1989), “Tomorrow Never Dies” (1997), “Die Another Day” (2002), and “No Time to Die” (2020).

Fans will look forward to another battle between the MI6 spy and his adversary with weapons that employ the latest in technology. These should be in keeping with modern trends in tackling ruthless adversaries.
