No Time to Die: Daniel Craig's final outing as James Bond will leave fans shaken and stirred

  No Time to Die: Daniel Craig's final outing as James Bond will leave fans shaken and stirred After a long wait, Daniel Craig's last appearance as 007 is arriving in theatres. No Time to Die comes with the usual James Bond elements and an extra side of sentimentality.So what is the best way to judge the arrival of the new Bond film? After the darkened screens and lockdowns of 2020, it might be time to properly calibrate our expectations.

The actor recently reflected on his audition for Bond in an interview with The New York Times, saying he "assumed he'd been invited to audition as cannon fodder, to make it easier to choose someone else for the part."

He had been brought in to audition following the exit of Brosnan, who had played Bond in four films from 1995 to 2002. Craig explained, "I was just amongst the mix — someone to dismiss," before adding that he thought he'd be cast as a villain, saying, "Here you go, have a baddie."

Yet, the actor went on to star as Bond in five films, starting with Casino Royale (2006) and including Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015). His final film in the franchise, No Time to Die, premieres in theaters on Oct. 8.

Craig told the Times he aimed for consistency throughout his Bond films, admitting he may be remembered "as the Grumpy Bond," but adding, "That's just my Bond and I have to face up to it, that has been my Bond. But I'm quite satisfied with that."

About that 'No Time to Die' ending... .
NEW YORK (AP) — This story discusses the ending of “No Time to Die." That such a spoiler warning is even necessary is strange in the world of James Bond. Doesn't he save the world and get away with the girl? Isn't that one of the immutable laws of 007, right up there with the tuxedos, Aston Martins and facially scarred villains of seemingly limitless financing? Just as surely as his foes can build a teeming lair in a volcano, Bond has a gadget, and a wry quip, to deploy at just the right time to rescue humankind. So sayeth the Book of Bond. And yet in “No Time to Die,” which debuted with $56 million in U.S. and Canada theaters over the weekend, the unthinkable happens.
