After the incidents of 2015’s Spectre, James Bond has left active service and is enjoying a peaceful life in Jamaica. But his peace ended when Felix Leiter asked him for help, his old friend and a CIA officer. Felix draws him back to action to rescue Valdo Obruchev, a scientist who got abducted. This rescue mission leads Bond on the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology. The mission takes him to Italy and Norway, but the reason for this is still unknown.

The Story of No Time to Die (2020):

As the film is an upcoming movie, we cannot know much about the story. However, it seems like there will be a lot of spectres in it as we can see Bond speaking with Ernst Stavro Blofeld, former SPECTRE head who was captured five years ago.

The previous Bond film Spectre received a lot of mixed reactions from the fans; mostly because of its script, slow feeling action and the ending. No Time to Die is also receiving both positive and negative reactions from the fans after the release of the trailer.

From the trailer, we can see Bond is in the car having an argument with Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), a brilliant psychiatrist and the daughter of ‘Mr. White’ – a long term SPECTRE operative. Which means what we saw in Spectre is not the end of her story. It seems like Madeleine and Bond’s relationship did not work out, probably because she kept some secrets. That is why Bond was so angry in that scene; he gave up everything for her, but she betrayed him and broke his heart.

Then we see him talking with his old CIA pal Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) in a club, probably located in Jamaica. Felix was asking for a favor – to rescue a kidnapped scientist. 

No Time to Die - James Bond (2020)

We see Bond meeting Nomi (Lashana Lynch) in this film. As life has gone on without Bond for five years, Nomi is given the opportunity to replace him as a double 0 agent. It looks like Bond has met his match in the field. If the reports are true, we are going to meet the new 007 in this film, and it might be Nomi. As Bond films are criticized for their portrayal of women; it can be an opportunity for the long-running franchise to develop as it adapts modern tastes and sensibilities. If Lynch truly becomes the series lead, it would be a move that helps the franchise keep up with the times. 

The big baddie, the mysterious villain of this film, is Safin, played by Oscar-winning actor Rami Malek. Madeleine may have some connection with Safin as she has been sent the same mask as he wears.

No Time to Die (2020) trailer gives us some hints that 007 will die in this film, ending the era of Craig’s Bond, which he played for 14 years.
