Daniel Craig's stint as the iconic spy James Bond comes to an end in the 25th instalment of the franchise.

Eon Productions wanted his series of five films to unfold like a unified whole; Quantum of Solace (2008) picked up immediately after Casino Royale (2006), which had tracked Bond's initiation into the life of a double-O agent. Skyfall (2012) followed revealing essential aspects of Bond's early life. No Time To Die began in the aftermath of Spectre (2015), which saw Bond (Craig) and Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux) driving away in the Aston Martin DB5 at the end of the film.

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.
