No time to wait: world premiere for new Bond movie

No time to wait: world premiere for new Bond movie

Celebrities and royals walk the red carpet in central London on Tuesday for the much-delayed world premiere of the latest James Bond film, "No Time To Die". 

British actor Daniel Craig's fifth and final outing in the blockbuster franchise hits big screens after its release was repeatedly postponed during the coronavirus pandemic.

It will go on general release in Britain on Thursday and in the United States on October 8 -- a year and a half behind schedule.

The release will be cinema-only, not streaming, which Craig called a "joyous thing" in an interview with Sky News.

- Craig bows out -

He deploys his trademark hi-tech gadgets in spectacular scenery in Italy and Norway while battling the villainous Safin, played by Oscar-winner Rami Malek ("Bohemian Rhapsody").

With Craig bowing out, speculation has mounted over who will inherit his licence to kill.

Craig has held onto the role longer than any of his predecessors since his 2006 debut in "Casino Royale". 

After "Spectre" in 2015, Craig told Time Out magazine he would rather "slash his wrists" than reprise the role.

His previous films include a 2011 adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's "Jane Eyre".

- 'World has changed' -

The Bond films are based on a character created by upper-class British writer Ian Fleming in novels published in the 1950s and 1960s. 

The new film's director has also criticised Bond's sexual exploits.

"That wouldn't fly today," he stressed.

In the film, Bond spars with a black female MI6 agent, played by Briton Lashana Lynch, and has to take a back seat to her as she flies a plane.
