James Bond No Time To Die was originally supposed to be released in April 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced it to be moved back. Daniel Craig‘s final film as 007 was subsequently delayed a further few times, before settling on the release date of September 30, 2021. The latest trailer from Bond bosses MGM doubles down on the film’s release date, which hits the big screen in just a few months.
The new trailer, which can be watched at the top of this article, showcases some of the more exciting moments from earlier videos.
Bond can be seen dodging death as a speeding car races towards him; loading guns and firing towards his foes and teaming up with the new 007, Lashana Lynch.
What appears to be new footage is also featured in the film, showing Bond standing at a window uttering his iconic line: “The name is Bond, James Bond.”
Perhaps the most poignant moment of the trailer is the arrival of Rami Malek’s villain Safin, who can be firing at Bond in a vicious attack.
The thrilling trailer concludes with the definitive words: “Only in theatres, October.”
No Time To Die is due to be released on October 8 in the US.
Although the film has moved drastically a few times over the past year, cinemas have now opened up again, meaning it should be coming out as scheduled.
UK fans of James Bond will be able to see the film even earlier than the US.
The UK release date of No Time To Die is currently September 30.

Bond boss Barbara Broccoli also spoke out about some details about the film.
She revealed: “There’s a few lines that are in the script that Bond fans will love from the books and some wonderful locations that are described in the books.
“We consider this film to be a classic Bond film, but with a modern twist and it’s also vitally important because it is the fifth and final one that Daniel Craig is going to be doing.
“It’s a culmination of everything that his portrayal of the character has been through and it ties up all the storylines. It’s a pretty epic film, I have to say.”
Craig’s replacement has not yet been announced, but the odds are currently stacked in the favour of Netflix and Bridgerton actor Regé-Jean Page.

No Time To Die’s synopsis reads: “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.”
James Bond No Time To Die arrives in cinemas on September 30 in the UK and October 8 in the US.
