Add to that, Léa Seydoux, who was seen as Bond’s love interest in Spectre makes a much-awaited return helping Bond get over the traumas in his life.
The Theme Song
A Grammys award-winner and the youngest singer ever to ever record a song for the James Bond franchise, Billie Eilish’s track for No Time To Die, titled with the same name, thankfully has been exciting fans ever since its release back in February. With a set of incredible haunting vocals, dark and broody tunes and strings, it’s almost exactly what one would imagine from the Bond x Billie collab.
A plot that’s as riveting and gripping as it gets
After the sad demise of Bond’s lady love in the last film, No Time to Die starts with James Bond leaving active service and living a quiet life in Jamaica away from all the action.

What will the future be for this new agent? What is it that’s being hinted at? Will this movie disclose the next James Bond? We’ll have to wait until its theatrical release this November to see what No Time To Die has in store for its audience.
