Bond 25 Title Has Been Revealed
We’ve known plenty of details about the twenty fifth Bond film for some time now, but four months after the film started shooting, we’ve finally been given the title.
It has been revealed that Daniel Craig’s final turn as James Bond will be called No Time to Die. It definitely sounds like a Bond film, if not a bit vague. It certainly doesn’t hint to any plot details on the surface, unlike the rest of Daniel Craig’s Bond films, which have usually all hinted at a major part of the film’s story.

SPECTRE shared the name of the infamous organisation led by Bond’s arch nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld, while Skyfall was the name of the plan set in motion by Javier Bardem’s villain. Casino Royale had the casino with the same name as Bond played a game of high-stakes poker with Mads Mikkelsen’s villain, while Quantum of Solace was the name of the evil organisation that did… well, whatever Quantum of Solace was about.
The reveal of the name No Time to Die is a significant step forward for the production of Bond 25 anyway, which will be a relief to fans looking for some sign that the film is now on the right track. After script rewrites upon rewrites and a change in director, followed by Daniel Craig injuring his ankle on set and a controlled explosion accident, the news of confirmed cast members followed by the name reveal provides some much needed positivity. And that’s before you get to the involvement of Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
No Time to Die features returning cast members Daniel Craig (James Bond), Lea Seydoux (Madeleine), Jeffrey Wright (Felix Leiter), Ben Whishaw (Q), Ralph Fiennes (M) and Rory Kinnear (Tanner), as well as new additions Rami Malek, Billy Magnussen, Ana de Armas, David Dencik and Dali Benssalah. The film will arrive in theatres on 3 April 2020.
