New photos from No Time to Die show Daniel Craig in a bizarre-looking suit for the James Bond movie. Craig took over the role of James Bond in 2006 for the film Casino Royale. Craig returned for three more movies and is currently filming the 25th 007 installment, which will also mark his last outing as the character.
While the production of Bond 25 was once thought to be cursed because of an explosion on set, Craig injuring his ankle, and a case of voyeurism, fans have also gotten some positive updates about 007's next adventure. Back in April, the cast of Bond 25 was confirmed with Léa Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, and Naomie Harris all set to return, along with Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch, and Rami Malek also joining the series. Bond 25 was also officially titled No Time To Die last month, and now, fans can get a new sneak peek at what the characters may look like in the film.
New images from MGM show Craig sporting a new suit with an odd pattern while posing with co-star Seydoux and director Cary Joji Fukunaga. The images, which likely don't come from filming and were just taken for promotional purposes, also reveal that the crew is now filming No Time to Die in Matera, Italy.
While this is the newest look people have gotten at No Time to Die, it isn't the first. Fans had previously been treated to set photos that reunited Craig with Jeffrey Wright, who had appeared in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. Wright plays a CIA operative named Felix Leiter, who had been played by six different actors before Wright. A few months ago the first official photo of Craig as Bond in No Time to Die was released, which also featured the Aston Martin V8 from The Living Daylights.
The people in the photos shouldn't come as a big surprise, but the background of the images is a bit more intriguing. Matera is a city in Southern Italy and it was previously reported that Bond 25 was filming a massive action sequence there. The scene is described as being on the same level as the opening of Spectre, which saw Bond infiltrate a Day of the Dead festival in Mexico City to kill Marco Sciarra. Italy has been the country of choice for several action sequences in the 007 franchise over the years and No Time to Die seems to be keeping that tradition alive.
