World Premiere Of "NO TIME TO DIE" - Red Carpet

The 25th James Bond film and Daniel Craig’s swan song, No Time to Die, spy, held its world premiere in London last night (Sep. 28, 2021).

It’s been a long road to this premiere, which was originally due to take place in March 2020. But the pandemic quashed release plans for April that year and led to a handful more date changes along the way.

Wet weather failed to dampen spirits as Daniel Craig, dressed in an eye-catching pink velvet dinner jacket, and co-stars including Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch and Lea Seydoux reunited for the hotly anticipated movie, which cinema operators hope will help bring audiences back to pre-pandemic levels.

Plus, royalty was on hand. Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla.

This isn’t the first time Daniel Craig hung out with a member of the royal family. He and “Queen Elizabeth” jumped out of a helicopter for the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics.

“It’s such a great relief. It was so important to me to come and celebrate with all the other cast and crew and to get it into the cinemas and we’re here,” Craig told Reuters.

“A year ago I didn’t think that was going to happen.”

Asked what he was going to miss the most from playing 007, he said: “The people.”

As for the reviews for the film? For the most part they are quite splendid.

Here is a sampling of the reactions from film critics.

Variety’s Owen Gleiberman gave a rave review, writing: “No Time to Die is a terrific movie: an up-to-the-minute, down-to-the-wire James Bond thriller with a satisfying neo-classical edge. It’s an unabashedly conventional Bond film that’s been made with high finesse and just the right touch of soul, as well as enough sleek surprise to keep you on edge.”

The Telegraph’s Robbie Collin also awarded No Times to Die five stars, praising director Fukunaga.
