James Bond doesn’t just drive an Aston Martin. He doesn’t just do donuts, and he doesn’t just shoot machine guns. Double-oh-seven does donuts in an Aston Martin DB5 while Gatling guns pop out of its headlights and snipe his enemies. The stunt is one of the most eye-popping visuals in the first official trailer for the newest film in the Bond franchise, “No Time to Die.”
For the last time, a Bond trailer debuts with Daniel Craig as the lead man, and it puts all of the information we’ve been collecting throughout the past few months into an action-packed 2½-minute clip. The trailer starts exactly how we’d hoped, with a car chase between the DB5, Jaguars, and some motorcycles.
Even before the new footage, Aston Martin detailed exactly which cars we’ll see in the new flick. To some degree, the Valhalla, the DBS Superlegerra, the V8 Vantage, and the DB5 will all make appearances. While the DB5 seems to be Bond’s vehicle of choice, the trailer shows newcomer Nomi (played by Lashana Lynch) driving the DBS. In addition to the Range Rover seen flipping in the clip, we also expect to see the new Land Rover Defender in the film.
As is typical of any Bond story, 007 seems to get caught in a trap, as he navigates his relationship with Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann and chasing Rami Malek, the new villain Safin. Here’s the synopsis straight from YouTube:
In No Time To Die, 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.
We also see appearances from Ralph Fiennes as M, Christoph Waltz as Ernst Stavro Blofeld, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, and Jeffrey Wright as Leiter. “No Time to Die” releases April 8, 2020.
