“No Time To Die” Makes its Star-Studded World Premiere in London

The early reactions to No Time To Die are in, and it sounds like Daniel Craig’s final turn as James Bond is as thrillingly satisfying as we could have hoped. Before we get to those, though, we wanted to share some of the images from the world premiere last night, at the Royal Albert Hall in London. All the film’s stars were there, as were many of the filmmakers responsible for making the movie happen, including director Cary Joji Fukunaga, co-writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge, theme song creator (and pop superstar) Billie Eilish, and legendary composer Hans Zimmer.

This is the 25th installment in the Bond franchise, and you could make the case that never has a new Bond film felt this timely or important. No Time To Die was delayed repeatedly because of the pandemic, and as it returned to Royal Albert Hall last night, it wasn’t only a bittersweet sendoff for Daniel Craig, it also represents what so many people are hoping marks the return to some sense of normalcy, drawing audiences (safely) back into the theater. The movie world needs Bond, James Bond, now more than ever.

So here’s a selection of photos from the red carpet last night, showing everyone from the alumni like Craig, Naomie Harris, Léa Seydoux, and Ben Whishaw to the newcomers Lashana Lynch and Ana de Armas. At long last, Bond is back.

No Time To Die hits theaters on October 8.
