It’s been four years since the last James Bond movie, 2015’s Spectre, but the next film in the long-running franchise is now less than six months away. No Time To Die sees Daniel Craig return as the iconic superspy for the fifth time, and now the end of production has been marked by a pair of behind-the-scenes images.
The first picture was tweeted by the official Bond account, and shows Craig with director Cary Joji Fukunaga on the set of the new movie. The second was posted by Fukunaga on Instagram, and simply shows the clapperboard for presumably the last shot of production with the caption “It’s a wrap.” Check the tweet out below and Fukunaga’s post here.

These images follow some No Time To Die publicity pictures of Craig, Fukunaga, and co-star Léa Seydoux, which were posted last month. There was also this considerably more interesting on-set footage released in June.
Seydoux is reprising her Spectre role of Madeleine Swan. She will be joined by Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, and Naomie Harris as M, Q, and Miss Moneypenny respectively, while Geoffrey Wright returns as Felix Leiter, a role he last played in 2008’s Quantum of Solace. The new cast members include Rami Malek in a villainous role, plus Billy Magnussen and Ana de Armas. No Time To Die releases on April 3, 2020.
The official synopsis was released this summer. It reads: “In No Time To Die, 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.”
